What happened? What’s it all about, Alfie? Misogynistic, feckless, dissolute, 1966-film Alfie ends up all alone, save a stray dog. How did his Donald twin end up with the presidency?

Nothing for it but to talk about the Elephant in the room, and so we did in a cosy corner of Café Bakker in Tilburg. By evening’s end the spirits of true-blue Americans had been restored by Aussie, British, Dutch, and French solidarity.

There will be many a borrel before the one we plan in November 2020 to celebrate the retaking of the White House!
