Supporter or loather of the current UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, you should watch this:
Donald Trump is apparently a big fan of Mr Johnson, perhaps because the UK Prime Minister is in favour of Mr Trump buying Notre Dame in Paris and turning it into a hotel. Not all details in this report may be correct though.
The Ebola outbreak in Congo is in its 12th month, mirroring the the West African Ebola outbreak that ravaged Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leon in 2014. Then, it took years for the World Health Organization to raise enough money to end the outbreak.
Comparatively, within days of the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral in France there was nearly $1 million in donations for the rebuild.
Not about Notre Dame today and certainly not a joke.
There have been two mass shootings in the USA overnight.
At least 20 people have been killed at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas and at least 9 people are dead in Dayton, Ohio. Only a single but different and unconnected male was responsible for each incident. The shooter in Dayton was killed by police while the El Paso shooter gave himself up after the carnage.
For the first time, a Colombian (on a British team) is the winner.
As the riders entered the capital city, the race crossed the river Seine via Le Pont Neuf, close to the medieval cathedral of Notre Dame – French television chose not to show the building that was ravaged by fire in April.
The next UK Prime Minister has been announced as Boris Johnson, provided that the Queen gives her assent tomorrow.
This is not a joke although perhaps it should be, like when I thought Mr Johnson would be in favour of turning Notre Dame into a hotel and the roof into a swimming pool. This is a joke. At least I think it is…
