You are not going to come away from this knowing more about politics or science or literature. Your mind will not be enriched. You will not even learn a useless piece of information that will prove incredibly useful for roughly eight seconds of your life in two years time when it comes up as the answer to a pub quiz question. No, this is Not News, and you will learn nothing.

The rest of you? See you all down the cotton field on Saturday night. Heard it’s going to be a big one.
