Many things compete for our short attention spans in 2019. Going down the YouTube rabbit-hole almost guarantees amusing videos for some; uploading, scrolling and swiping through pictures and videos on our favourite social media applications, waiting for the “likes” to flood in is another. Music videos, binge watching popular box sets or reality tv-series, wildfire circulation of social media memes that take a life of their own and video games are some of the old and new favourites we engage with for entertainment. Maybe this example is generational but even BBC Parliament’s coverage of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit vote, which “hit an all-time [television] ratings high” for its cacophony of grumbles and posh disses that were flung across the floor in Westminster with a Brexit deadline looming, was highly entertaining…if not a bit disturbing. The British public and global political aficionados may also miss the bellowing of former Speaker of the House John Bercow’s “Ooorrrdddaaaahhhh!” as he retires. The forever-content-giving Donald Trump in a re-election bid and the impending airing of Boris’ dirty laundry are also bound to be high stakes, news-worthy drama too!
