I don't see the issue. If you pay taxes you should have a say in how they are spent. My wife is not British, pays tax, and can vote in local elections. No sign of the End Times yet.

Does that come with an umbrella and chocolate sprinkles:-?

Completely his own fault for not realizing that being anywhere in the States is like being at the wrong end of the ranges during Bisley. Except of course at Bisley at least somebody actually aimed at you...

P.S. Brookhaven is actually a very affluent (code for White) suburb of Atlanta, so he did well to get himself slotted there.
If only the bed had been put the other way, he’d have been shot in the foot.
 
I was thinking we mock each other over the difference between Chinese food and Oriental food. Followed by why Dodge is better than Landrover and finally why can’t the Brits get their expats to open up decent cafes so we can have Bangers and Mash, Jellied ells, Pie mash and liqueur, deep fried mars bars a full English and proper beans on toast!
Fixed

"Jellied eels, jellied eels, wiggling abaht like wonky wheels...dahn along the ole kent road...av a banana...all white guv...be lucky mi sun....allo john got a new motar....up the apples an pears.....gawd bless yer guv, yer a toff"....

Do you really want to inflict all the above bollox on the Americans, haven't they enough problems of their own to overcome,.........Guv! :eek:

A rather long article, describing the phenomena we refer to as "the Red Wall" . . .

The culture war is a class war in disguise

By attacking marriage, family and education, progressive elites are kicking away the ladder from the working class.

The idea that working-class Americans who vote for Republicans are ‘voting against their economic interests’ has become dogma on the progressive left. For the life of them, Democrats can’t understand why their proposals for an expanded welfare state do not appeal to the millions of downwardly mobile blue-collar workers in former union strongholds who turned states like West Virginia red . . .

I'm not sure if this is funny or just plain sad. This particular intellectual giant is at his confirmation hearing to be the Surgeon General for the State of Florida (Number 1 in COVID cases so stopped reporting them) when some snark-filled commie asks him a yes or no question about vaccines. Hilarious, unless you took his advice and died...

Difficulty factor - Yes or No questions

It's funny. He knows that in Florida anything to do with vaccines is going to be a political minefield and he's probably regretting taking the job.

On the other hand, answering those sorts of questions clearly and concisely is a major part of what the job is all about, so he should have had a prepared answer for it. The fact that he didn't shows that perhaps the job isn't for him.

Article from this week's Spectator, on the decline of the USA and its consequences. Sobering stuff:


"While America has vacated its role of global leadership, the world has had to rely on the architecture of international cooperation and governance assembled by an earlier, more outward-looking America. Unguarded for too long, these arrangements are increasingly vulnerable. Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping know that the international liberal order is essentially an American order, the imposition across the world of US values and therefore a projection of US power. Break this order by subduing Ukraine or annexing Taiwan, and you break American hegemony. The direction of the world is up for grabs in a way it hasn’t been since 1945."

"One wonders what if anything they could find to disagree with in Richard Sakwa’s recent contribution to Coffee House. Professor Sakwa assures us Russia’s invasion and occupation of the Crimea was ‘a defensive move’ and that ‘to protect its own security, Russia desires a neutral, friendly, multilingual Ukraine’. If there’s anything that keeps Vladimir Putin up at night, it’s the rights of linguistic minorities. This is ‘not an unreasonable wish’, says Professor Sakwa, but it is being frustrated by the West’s determination to ‘arm and encourage a militant and hostile neighbour’. Put another way, Professor Sakwa reckons Tony Soprano would stop whacking people if only the FBI would stop offering them a place in the Witness Protection Programme."

"It’s sobering to witness this alignment of the anti-Western left and the newly anti-Western right, of American global fatigue with the might-is-right prescriptions of the neo-realists, of liberalism in retreat and its would-be successors on the march. It’s depressing, too, to look to the United States for leadership and find a nation that no longer wants to lead. The global order is under pincer attack from Moscow and Beijing. Where is America?"

I dunno if the author really understands the Conservative parts of the US. To compare them to Europe is rather stupid. It is not that the US can't act as the worlds policemen if we really wanted to, it is that the US is not interested in doing that anymore and is more concerned about placing our country first. The world might have to learn to do things on their own if we don't view it as our concern.
