I'm not sure but, whatever it is, it's refreshing. Hanna Jane Parkinson brings her pop culture perspective to the sometimes tumultuous NATO summit.
The last time a group of underachievers with an increasingly shoddy commitment to defence stayed at a “luxury resort” in Watford, it was the England football team. On Tuesday, the leaders of the Nato nations arrived to celebrate the alliance’s 70th birthday. Seventy, coincidentally, is about the average age of the leaders.
Conversation at the mini-summit included how to mess up the Syria situation further, while conversation later at Buckingham Palace, behind Trump’s back, was about how awful he is. Now, I’m no fan of Trump, but watching Justin Trudeau instigating this gossip session leaves you with the impression he is definitely the guy who screengrabs your comments in the WhatsApp group and shadily shares them with others.It's a fun take on an otherwise dreary and stodgy event, even if Justin can't help stepping in the mud puddles. Enjoy.
