Reading the news re Volodymyr Zelensky, it's good to know that we aren't the only country in the world to have a clown in government.

We had a young Ukrainian friend visiting recently who told us all about the prospective candidate, it wasn’t complimentary! She was mortified at the prospect of his being elected.

That made me laugh.
I vaguely remember hearing something about that but to me, reading your post, it sounds like a band. Beppo Grillo and the 5 stars. grin
