I wonder what the view from the stateside liberals window will be when the next extremist Muslim Massacres a bunch of citizens and Chicken little is let out of the coop so he can run around clucking "dearey me, the sky is a falling in, someone should have done something".

The view will be that it is Trumps fault. He encouraged them by being nasty. And if he had done nothing and kept Obama's policy it would also have been his fault for not implementing the policy he campaigned on and was elected with... I'm sensing a pattern....

Not only should Trump not see The Queen but also he is not worthy of addressing our political elite!
Well, he must know best and surely speaks for us all?? biggrin.gif

If it's anything like last time they'll be wondering why he wanted to ban follk from 7 countries but not the one's who flew the planes into the two towers.

In the meantime many thousands of Americans will be slaughtered by home-grown Christians and Trump will do nothing about gun control.

Crazy I know but banning guns in the USA is akin to banning cars in the UK. Its part of the DNA of Americans. Cars in the UK kill lots of people. It could be argued they should be banned.

Tax drugs. The US are making a mint. Sales of 7 billion in 2016 and soaring for Cannabis. Might help plug the hole on the NHS budget.
Also I was thinking about the NHS and health tourism. Why not deduct the bill from any foreign aid we give to the tourists country of origin. They can then chase them for the money and the invoice is paid????

Banned - or better controlled?

There are millions in the US who think there should be better gun control, I suspect there are plenty here who thinks that better driving standards should be enforced.

That aside, there was a time when driving home after 4 or 5 pints was commonplace, now it is seen as heinous behaviour by most; there is a similar change happening with phones and driving - national 'DNA' can change

Not whilst the NRA exists, that organisation exerts a fantastic amount of political clout and resists absolutely any curtailing of gun 'rights', look at the row over magazine size, look at the fuss over microstamping. Why does anybody 'need' an AR15? Why does anybody 'need' frangible ammunition? Because the red neck, bubblegum chewing psychopaths in the NRA say so. But then, that's America, and they just elected our Don. Tells you all you need to know right there!

Fascinating insight, these post truth pseudo analysis reports. Like the one I've seen for West Berkshire going against the trend in the referendum. Apparently it was because there were too many options on ballot paper and West Berkshire people can't cope with choice.

If Trump wins, you can kiss goodbye to the planet. But maybe pulling out of the Paris agreement won't be quite as easy as he makes out.


Oh.....A politician that keeps his word. Worlds media reacts in horror.... I personally don't agree with him but he was elected to do so.

And the people who elected him ie; those in the heartland will be overjoyed. Go Donald! Nice to see him keeping promises.
