Hello to all the Advertiser readers.
This morning we wake up to a new era in world politics. Perhaps the most divisive and most colourful figure it has produced for decades has moved back into the shadows and steps can be taken to redress the damage that has been done since his arrival four years ago.
Before I begin to talk and write about anything else, I simply have to refer to that dark Wednesday last week when, in Washington, Congress was stormed by rebels shouting that Donald Trump had won the election, waving flags, and being egged on by Trump himself, who said “Well done, I’ll be with you shortly.” And of course, he never was.

I am sure that many of you have heard the name of Edmund Davis. I had not heard of him until I read it somewhere last week. He was the Governor of Texas who lost the election in 1873.

I am sure you are all square-eyed, as I am, from looking at TV for the last five or six days. Can you believe it? The American election was last Tuesday, and I am writing this column on the Tuesday of the following week, and still President Trump is shouting that the vote was stolen from him and that he is the true President.
