  2. 40,000 protesting in London today
    Only marginally less then the 41490 that watched Chelsea v Arsenal.
    Or 35,000 less than Man Utd's ground can hold or 18,000 less than turned out on a cold Sunday to watch Celtic Hearts last week.

    But they speak for the whole country apparently.

    Amongst other things they were protesting about was his weight.

    A mother sets a fine example.

  3. Isn't that considered fat shaming these days? She should check her thin privilage.
     
  4. On a more serious note however, dispute and turmoil is common enough in political life. But the present situation in the US is definitely far from normal.

    For a US president to fire the chief legal counsel to the US government or for his national security advisor, a man with access to the most sensitive secrets of the US government, be subject to a counterintelligence investigation, then be denied a required security clearance by the CIA.

    It is completely new for a US president to express doubt about NATO, while watching Russia’s continuing annexation the Ukraine, or to have conservative Western European governments question US policies and have some in them question Mr. Trump addressing their parliaments.

    These are not partisan fears, but serious political considerations that go to the core of America’s ability to govern itself, provide security to its own citizens and continue to lead the Western world.

    The US is currently at one of the most serious points in its political history. Any person at the present time who exploits the current crisis for political gain is playing with the safety of more than just the USA.

    Mr. Trump must take stock and consider perhaps a little more caution and prudence in his undoubtedly hugely difficult task together with a new and inexperienced administration.

    It would be fair to say that his entrance has been watched by the world with critical eyes, and, that his initial actions as President have caught everyone’s attention. It is sincerely hoped for the worlds sake that he does not slip off the tightrope he walks and get his most vulnerable parts subjected to some serious hurt, because that pain will be also be experienced by millions around the globe.

  5. This isn't a new thing.

    Back in 1995 Bonn paid millions to Bosnian refugees to return home.

    The Australian government also took in Kosovar refugees temporarily and were pilloried for having to bribe them to go home. It was a success and in hindsight cheap.

    Nowadays the thought of repatriating country shoppers by simply kicking the chancers *********** and telling them that their welcome is worn out and to go home is completely off the table. Repatriation of refugees is no longer even a consideration.

    Bribing them to bugger off to whence they came, as has been institutionalised for more than 30 years, is now regarded as inhumane.

    Go and have intercourse with my well used ankle high footwear!

    Welcome to the slippery slope.

  7. Was she nicked under Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986 ?
     
  8. "Daily Wail" carries an article that Donald Chump is going to prove that he doesn't have Demetia after some slurred speeches during his recent visit to Israel and Jerusalem. If he does undergo these medical tests, the psychiatrists and doctors will possibly delcare that he has a lack of empathy, and huge degree of narcisitc delusional attitudes about himself and his abilities.

    The White House insisted Thursday that Donald Trump's lispy, halting performance Wednesday in an Israel policy speech is nothing to worry about, and a U.S. Navy doctor will release the results of a physical next year to prove it. The president's speaking cadence became irregular and his speech slurred during part of his delivery, concluding with 'God bless the United Shhtates.' White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Thursday that 'there were a lot of questions on that. Frankly pretty ridiculous questions. The president's throat was dry. Nothing more than that.'

    :):rolleyes:
