I subscribe to London Review of Books, but don't always manage to keep up to date in my reading of it. Which explains why, having read the latest edition, I'm also catching up with one from June 2015. In that, there's a survey of the various Republican contenders for president. The writer is not impressed with any of them, but ends up with the consolation that Donald Trump may finally put his hat in the ring - and he can make anybody look good.
Not so funny now. Michael White, veteran Guardian commentator and analyst, seriously thinks that Trump might win. We are living in horrendous times.
