I deleted the part of the headline that says “all is not lost” because – although it might be true in the summer of Corbyn – we are still living in a Tory Britain and far too much will be lost before it ends.

I’m so frightened now of real events I daren’t look at legitimate newspapers. Is it true the Conservatives are brazenly closing down official channels of opposition to strong-arm councils into allowing their friends and donors in the fossil fuels industry to frack everywhere, even under formerly protected national parks? Yes it is. Why isn’t this being stopped?

Amber Rudd, energy secretary, says shale gas must play a part in our energy supplies. But I thought if we got all this stuff out of the ground we would all die? And here, north of the border, the scrapping of wind farm subsidies bites, but will leave the death cult of Daily Telegraph readers delighted.

Even the artists that ought to be complaining are all just drunk in a Grassmarket bar. And any that say anything, if they happen to be gay or “ethnics” or “women posing as comedians”, will be dismissed as evidence of a leftwing media cabal that controls the country (not terribly effectively, under the circumstances), and then be threatened with rapes and beatings and burnings. And that’s just by the newspaper critics.
