Who Runs The World?

Olivia Topalian, 22

“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
– George Orwell, Animal Farm

A photograph of Donald Trump and Boris Johnston sharing a giggle over the table at the 45th G7 summit made my heart sink. People are starving, the NHS is suffocating, the country is on its knees, yet there they sat in ignorant bliss, their gluttony not only overflowing their trouser bands, but their wallets, too.

Pigs run this world. Politics is a trough full of money and everybody involved wants their snout buried the deepest.

Oink oink.
