It's the greatest show on earth, and it's *free*. From a strictly entertainment point of view you cannot do better than Boris Johnson and Donald Trump in charge of their respective countries at the same time. Future generations will be jealous of everyone who lived to enjoy this. https://t.co/jcxElKhQ17
