The Trump Presidency...

Are those the ones made in the EC and follow EU industry guidance.
Who knows and who cares. I will still buy stuff from Germany/Poland and go to Spain & Greece on holiday - I don't have issues where items are made. The EU can have as many rules and regs as it wants now, I don't care - as we are now free from that crap. We can sell them stuff, buy stuff from it - and do the same throughout the entire world, without some weasely Europhile from getting on our tits.
I see Ireland has been told it can't buy the covid vaccine (never stopped Germany though) from outside the EU, poor sods will be dying for no reason....that's the EU for you. Nothing but a corrupt protectionist racket.

Long live King Nigel Farage, champion of the people and architect of Brexit :).

Fair point. I haven't studied or looked into the comparative differences or similarities between fascism and socialism to comment with any knowledge, though I do recall our general studies teacher who was a bit of a lefty, (or so he made out, it was the 70s) that there were elements in both which appealed to the left and right so yes I suppose there would be some commonalities.
That's the thing about the far left and right they seem to appeal to the same type of person and have the same type of points, patriotism, outside enemies, control of the media etc.

Equally the leaders also seem to be similar types. You could have swapped Hitler for Stalin, Himmler for Beria and they'd have all felt at home with minimal resettlement time.

There was probably a Russian version of Eichmann making sure the trains got to the gulags on time.

I'm still enjoying bathing in the tears of remoaners for now - by the time they run out, USA will have had another 5 elections at least. :), I'm feeling dehydrated at the moment due to all the salt I am still getting from those tears - so I'm away for a cup of tea from my "remoaners tears" mug.

Ahh, your hero Nigel. He's a racist too.

Prove it.

The trouble with the left is that they use words like racist for everyone/everything they disagree with, then these words become meaningless. They constantly try to smear people and cancel them - and no wonder a lot of people now despise you, where before we would just happily ignore you.

Stop it. They used to make you pay a penny at Bedlam to do that.
A penny? Gosh you are old; it was sixpence when I were a lad.

You have absolutely no idea how it works do you.

You buy from the EU then it has to confirm to the EU rules imposed by a weaselly Europhile.
You sell to the EU and you have to comply with the rules imposed by a weaselly Europhile.

Different country, different mindset and values.

The good thing about Trump is that he has now shown the American public just how corrupt the swamp really is, how the media and big tech and the corrupt politicians are so far out of touch with the average American.

I can see Facebook/Twitter/Whatsapp and some of these other platforms going the way of the dodo (such as myspace etc) soon. Most of my family and friends have now switched over to Signal and Telegram and are binning WhatsApp, Parler is offline for now, but they now have their domain up again and are moving hosting services where they can't be touched. Parler Status Updates, lots are also switching to Gab: https://gab.com/

Big tech names are changing, People get their news from social media platforms rather than the MSM, and the American public are about to find out just how corrupt the Biden family is (Hunter and his child porn/drugs/China kickbacks). Now the swamp has been exposed and people are keeping an eye on it.

I think over the next few years, we will see a lot more startups moving to platforms based outside USA and untouchable by these corrupt politicians and lefty leaning tech companies.

The left will become synonymous with the likes of the Nazi party, which it isn't far from at the moment.

Wishful thinking, blurred further by the fact that should the current titans fall, those that replace them will grow to be the same.

Yes, German Bratwurst - when I am eating that, that's what I think about (EU rules)........ hmm no I just eat the thing and carry on my day as normal knowing that we didn't need to give the EU £13.5 billion pounds that year for the privilege of me stuffing my face full of German sausage. That warms my cockles right up!
 
Yep, that swamp was definitely drained by 45.o_O

No system is perfect, but the USA takes 'questionable' practices in a 21st C democracy to a whole, different level.

'The lobbying firm run by Trump ally Matt Schlapp brought in $750,000 in the final two weeks of 2020 from a former top Trump fundraiser and convicted fraudster who retained Schlapp to lobby — unsuccessfully — for a presidential pardon.

'Why it matters: The substantial sum that the former fundraiser, Georgia's Parker "Pete" Petit, paid to Schlapp's Cove Strategies shows how valuable connections to Donald Trump were in his final days in office for wealthy felons seeking clemency from the outgoing president.

'What's new: Lobbying disclosure records filed on Thursday said Schlapp, a close informal Trump adviser, worked on a "request for a pardon and other public policy issues relating to criminal justice."

  • The disclosure filing, which covered the last two weeks of 2020, said that Schlapp had contacted just one government office on Petit's behalf: the Executive Office of the President.
  • Petit was not on the list of the nearly 150 pardons and commutations that the White House released during Trump's final days in office.
  • Schlapp didn't respond to inquiries about the other policy work he reported performing on the account.'

Hmmmm... a true committed anti-vaxxer and covid-denier like yourself wouldn't see it this way. How many times have you claimed it's just a harmless flu and warned of the dangers of this rushed vaccine?

Every one of your posts on every topic is a pure celebration of ignorance. You've got to be a troll.

Remind me what you said about Covid 19?

Like saying someone is acting like a Nazi, because they told someone else to stand up for them?

Not really, also where's your proof Nigel Farage is a racist? Since that's a term you seem to be slandering him with. You haven't get any have you! Basically you are just a "sheeple" jumping on the lefty bandwagon dishing out insults because you can't come up with anything useful to say. I pity people like that, like you - you're easily led and gullible.

Please show one instance where I've called Farage racist.

Top-notch whataboutery, though. Well done.
