US' Attempted Russian Régime Change And Boris Johnson's Warmongering Avowed By Presidential Candidate

54:56 From a viewer:

Two Belfast mothers of small boys meeting for a coffee and sharing the latest news of their sons and heirs:

One mother asks the other what she thinks about this bizarre craze of kids "self-identifying" as an animal or an inanimate object.

The second mother admits that her seven-year-old has recently announced that he is now self-identifying as a cat - though fortunately a tom cat.

The first mother is appalled and tries to sympathise with her friend.

The second mother reassures her that she knows it will only be a passing fad and points out that she and her husband are actually seeing beneficial signs linked to their son's new identity—firstly, they have noticed that the lad is now actually washing behind his ears regularly; and secondly, her husband seems sure that the little tyke has actually nailed the mouse problem they were having in the garden shed!
