A few sites I've stumbled across recently....

Minty: it is curious that you should berate people for assuming the “wrong” reasons for someone’s actions – then go and display the very same yourself (“....in the case of Trump, help, I don't like stairs, hold me tight.”) There is a word for that… something to do with a water horse and a town in France… Oh, yes – hippo and Crecy. Some spell it “hypocrisy.”

Pcar: have you viewed that video by Ami Horowitz, linked through the Small Dead Animals site? If not, I suggest you do, as you might see the context of which I spoke – the bloke clearly sees it as signalling his virtue.

Something from Countryfile
"But nightingale numbers have fallen in Britain by 90% in the last 50 years
..... and their range has contracted to the south and east "

#1 If it's Climate Change ..you'd expect range to be moving north
#2 I reckon 'them foreigners' in Russia, Cyprus etc. are shooting them as the fly over.
#3 BBC has recently blamed deer over abundance for reducing undergrowth.

Politico is claiming nuance

“The era in which we could fully rely on others is over to some extent,” Merkel said, before adding, “That’s what I experienced over the past several days.”

The qualifiers “fully” and “some extent” weren’t unintentional; with this German chancellor, little is.

Has the story changed ? \\Merkel: Europe 'can no longer rely on allies' after Trump and Brexit// *
Newssniffer shows 1 update

In note these links are just stuck their between paragraphs without explanation :

\\ Can 'first daughter' save climate accord?
What was agreed in Paris?
What is climate change? //

* I'd like to remind Merkel that the "others" EUROPE can no longer rely on, have saved Europe from the Germans.Twice !

PCar. You are of course correct, but I took the middle way. You cannot ignore a man's pride.

...the usual explanation of a man holding his wife's hand is pride - this woman has chosen me; she is mine or, in the case of Trump, help, I don't like stairs, hold me tight. Why not take the high road and assume the better, rather than always the worst?

imho because a normal response would be "I hold her hand as we love each other..."

Not

...It might be fair to say that the ONLY reason he married her was to satisfy his intensity of desire for virtue-signalling – “I walk through the airport, holding her hand, so everyone knows that she is with me…”
