This is a call for common sense. We all know that in these turbulent times feelings can run high and people take strongly held views, but enough is enough. It is time to show some respect. For instance, I have heard people say that Boris Johnson looks like a startled orangutan in a suit. Really, there is no need for this. Wild haired, lumbering and rarely seen in public and widely persecuted, orangutans are endangered species. Boris Johnson is the prime minister of the United Kingdom.
People have also said that when Donald Trump and Boris Johnson get together it looks like a casting for a 1970’s PG Tips advert.
What people are forgetting is that that we chose these people to be our leaders. That’s how democracy works. The fact that Hilary Clinton gained more votes than Donald Trump? Mere trifling details.
It is time for us to come together, set aside our differences and rise to the high standards set by our leaders.
Ask not what our leaders can do for us, but what we can do for them.
