In these darkening days of 2017, it is difficult not to feel as though all our hopes and dreams are doomed to remain exactly that for eternity; hopes and dreams, unfulfilled.
But maybe, just maybe, the planets are realigning. The universe's cosmic energy is shifting, almost imperceptibly. Perhaps things are going to be ok after all.
By this stage it must surely be patently obvious which monumental development must have signalled such a transformation in our collective, global fortunes.
Jet from Gladiators is to host a millennium barn dance at Yeovil Aerodrome.
Well, sort of.
Clearly, largely for chronological reasons, it's unlikely to be a millennium barn dance.
Also, there are no guarantees that Jet - or Diane Youdale, as she claims she is now known - will actually host the barn dance.
But hey, (notwithstanding potentially complex licensing issues surrounding the venue), Jet.. sorry, Ms Youdale, will finally make the most alluring of Alan Partridge's many glorious ideas almost a reality.
She actually sort of said it, to the i:
I’ll still one day barn dance at Yeovil Aerodrome!
So, just for minute, lets forget all the bad stuff.
Brexit won't happen anyway. Trump will be impeached soon. Mankind will probably devise some ingenious means of reversing this climate change stuff. And Jet wasn't just reluctantly indulging the latest journalist to ask her about something she's probably never really found that amusing (having also said, no doubt wearily: “It was weird to be honest – great fun though!”).
Because Jet is (one day/realistically never) going to barn dance at the Yeovil Aerodrome!
Providing, of course, arrangements have been made to ensure adequate law enforcement provision/avoid said event becoming an all-night rave.
