Captain’s column: How many more years?

IT was a relief to see the American election finally come to an end last week - and at least the result was clear this time.

But it looks very much to me like our Yankee cousins have spent several billion dollars and ended up exactly where they started. Same President, same Congress, same ridiculous news channel anchor men.

Also, couldn’t help noticing they only have one way of celebrating.

It’s exactly the same whoop or holler whether they’ve won the Superbowl, won an election or killed a terrorist mastermind...

‘USA! USA! USA!’
