Fake News? Or Just An Imperfect Aspect

Journalism is only as imperfect as art.
When I was a young cub reporter newly arrived at The Sunday Times in London in the mid-1980s, the great war correspondent Jon Swain told me that all we can do, with a deadline approaching, is report what we know and can see at that particular moment in time.
We must aspire to accuracy, but if we make a mistake and have to return to our report to correct it later so be it.
This is why we all have to act as responsibly as we can but don’t ever expect any of us to be 100% accurate 100% of the time.
Only with a margin of error can any information be imparted. If we allow for that nothing can ever be told (or drawn).

Theresa May’s Groundhog Day

With Brexit in mind, we appear to be living with a calendar where every day’s the political equivalent of Groundhog Day. 
No one seems up to the task of leading the U.K. out of the EU without causing pain, anguish and quite probably worse.
Jeremy Corbyn is no great hope, as the fence he sits on threatens to collapse under the weight of pro-EU members, voters and logic, without him seeing the electoral light.
But the person who currently seems least capable of all is the prime minister.
All Theresa May is doing on a daily basis is stoking the risk of a popular backlash against any final deal.
Every day, in order to hold her fraying party together, she pretends to the country that Britain can take back control while it gives it away to ensure frictionless trade and no damage to our lives and livelihoods.
Instead of being so irresponsible and untrustworthy, it would be appreciated if she could learn the lesson that Phil Connors, the arrogant Pittsburgh TV weatherman took on board during his assignment covering the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
To escape the time loop, repeating the same day again and again, after indulging in hedonism and committing suicide several times, Connors re-examines his life and priorities with beneficial consequences.
It would be greatly appreciated by everyone if Prime Minister May could do the same!
