My post likening Brexit to an aircraft crash landing got noted in The Daily Mail, mainly as a peg for an old joke. Having once been described in the Evening Standard as a Tory grandee, here I am described as ‘geeky’. I checked the dictionary definition, not least given that nowadays a number of terms are used in popular discourse that I am not quite sure what they mean. A geek is someone who is regarded as somewhat eccentric. I am conscious that at times what seems to me quite natural behaviour, not least in terms of working habits, is distinctive. However, according to the dictionary I consulted, geek is also slang for a carnival performer noted for biting the heads off animals. I may be slightly eccentric, but I am not that odd.
On the post itself, the pilot has temporarily stalled the engines and passengers appear to be getting increasingly worried and frustrated.
