Trump Administration Is Pulling US Out of UNESCO

But now we have to face up to the shocking and short-sighted folly of Trump’s move, with the news that UNESCO has a vital role to play in the preservation of those long loaves best eaten toasted with cheese…

PS – Somebody will no doubt gloatingly advise me that some or all of the above are already on UNESCO’s lists.

Which will only go to prove my point!
