2017 isn't going to rank up there as one of the best.
It was the year that Donald Trump finally entered the White House. Racial tensions in America and the rest of the world rose to worrying levels. Britain's Brexit negotiations with the European Union have been a bit of a disaster. North Korea have threatened nuclear war. The Grenfell fire happened.Celebrity sexual assault scandals have exposed previously respected figures as nothing more than deviants.
We could go on.
What would be the best way to sum the last 11 months up (remembering we've still got one more to go)?
