Do you remember the Walt Disney movie Fantasia?
Do you remember the bit when Mickey Mouse is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice - and magics a broomstick to start carrying buckets full of water?
It all ends in nightmarish chaos as the broomstick and buckets of water keep multiplying, and Mickey is nearly washed away. It’s a real case of “beware what you conjure up”.
Well that’s what the last few days have felt like for me.
