Actually, if people listened to ALL Trump says, they'd find he isn't nearly as maverick as they might imagine. For instance, as he says, he wants to negotiate with Putin, so its rather sensible to start off on a friendly basis because you are more likely to be able to achieve far more and then, only if necessary get tough. And as we know, he can get tough. Do we really want another cold war with the lunatic fringe in the States itching to let off more nuclear weapons? I'd argue that the biggest danger to World security are the yo yo's who inhabit the CIA and FBI.

Trump and Putin, hmm, probably slightly like slipping in two blocks of subcritical uranium to a toddler's toybox. Eventually he's going to smash them together. Might not happen today, or tomorrow, but it's inevitable and will be apocalyptic.

....and so, even more illustrates the need for them to calm down and talk to each other as reasonable adults.

Nice! Getting ready to celebrate the murder of someone on the basis you don't agree with his views. Lovely.

Actually if you knew me you would know I was joking. I'm teetotal. biggrin.gif

So the abhorrent murder of MP Jo Cox is a cause for mourning, but the murder of Donald Trump is cause for a bottle of bubbly? Irony fail!

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

My bubbly is reserved for celebrating his being a successful tenure, but I fear it wont get opened in the next 8 years.

I was being lighthearted and I don't care if you're offended. I wouldn't wish him murdered, but I wish him gone. He is not fit for any office.

Not that we haven't had similar issues, but we are better at covering up and pretending!

And Hillary was I suppose? Ahh, none so blind. Still if nothing else, after his speech it might be an interesting 100 days. I wish we had a politician with the balls to say Britain first! But oh no,too right wing for the weeping liberal Masses

I have to say that if I were a blue collar worker with no job, living in the Rustbelt, on welfare stamps then I would be buoyed up by his speech.

Meanwhile the rest of the world quakes in its collective boots. I don't think I have ever heard a more isolationist speech.

Well, you might just be in luck, if she holds her nerve.

England must be one of the few nations not liked by its own people. That makes them think other nations don't like themselves either.

Sadly, what is said isn't always what is done. British jobs for British workers! LOL

I haven't a clue what you mean, and it has nothing to do with my comment. If America turns inwards, withdraws from the climate change agreement, promotes more use of fossil fuels, becomes protectionist, puts up trade barriers and withdraws from foreign involvement then the rest of the world suffers.

But that's not quite what he said. Protectionist? Trade Barriers? the EU is one of the worst offenders there. Climate Change Agreement? Oh yeah!, so long as you don't look too closely at the get outs certain nations have managed to slip in, who are also 'eating' fossil fuels right now. So in Amercian eyes; it seems the rest of the World has been taking the p***. As has been said, if I was 'Joe Average' that's exactly what I'd want to hear the President say.

Farage now works for Fox News.

Of course he's also still paid by us, the British tax payer, via the EU.

This man really has taken the British public for all he can get.
