A Penny for Mr. Fairclough's Thoughts

My old headmaster, Mr. Fairclough, used to tell us during morning assemblies about how he'd stopped reading the news because he'd found it getting more and more depressing by the day.

And this was way back in 1999 when the world was less shit than it is these days.

I do not know if he's still alive but I do wonder what he'd make of the utter mess the world has become today with all the bombings, attacks, stabbings, humanitarian crises and natural disasters that seem to be happening on an almost daily basis.
