    Don't see the "Reagan/Thatcher" vibe, yet, but only time will tell.

    It's astonishing (or maybe not!) bravado that Mr Farage dares to say that after the NHS bus banner. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    Also, having Nigel Farage endorse your policies isnt exactly something that a lot of people would be proud of....

    Farage clearly has no credibility in the European parliament, hence the guy behind holding up the sign.
    But really, he obviously has an agenda to align himself closely with Trump, so I don't know what he's still doing hanging around. Quite frankly he should be booted out, and sent packing to become one of Trump's yes men.

    That's quite funny, reminds me of a primary schooler taping a "kick me" sign on someone's back.

    Who should I take more seriously?

    He gave him $1M at one point, but a lot more than that subsequently. He also bailed him out of at least one bankruptcy, and finally Trump inherited many hundreds of millions, a sum which, if he'd placed it in a tracker fund, would these days be worth more than the upper estimates of his wealth (which is hard to pin down as he's secretive and claims different amounts depending on who he is talking to).

    But he certainly likes to pretend that he's as self-made as he can get away with claiming.

    I have watched this thread closely,And I don't like to talk politics because of the indifference between people beliefs.
    But I'm happy.

    I agree with you on the "send him packing" sentiment, but for the love of rational thought and the survival of modern society, don't send him over here!!!!

    Fair point. I can see you not wanting to add more insanity.

    And for those who still remember the "little green island next to france"

    Donald Trump would not be welcome to address parliament during his state visit, the Commons Speaker, John Bercow, has said in an unprecedented intervention that drew applause and cheers from MPs.

    Bercow, whose role is non-political, said he could not block a state visit by the US president but would use his role as one of the three “key-holders” of Westminster Hall to prevent the Republican from addressing MPs and peers.

    ^---- Quite right too. Why would we give an ignorant, sexist, racist, bigoted bully a platform to speak at Westminster?

    The thing I find most Sinister about that Breitbart article is the clickbait title which plants an idea of some kind of conspiracy, and the implication that anybody who did not or does not support DT is evil and must be smeared whenever possible. It's straight out of the propaganda handbook.

    The decline continues: they have just confirmed Betsy DeVos as Education secretary. Yes, the candidate with no professional qualifications in, personal experience with, or faith in public education.

    America is open to the highest bidder.

    This is STUPID..


    i remember a time.. when USA education was considered huge.
    in a global economy.. education of our youth is critical to the health of our nation.

    then it has been dropping... since 1990s.
    i dont think we are even in the top 10 any more...

    DeVos... this is NOT a step in the right direction.. to make america great again.

    conflict of interest? Spincer had to make an announcement on this?
    Using his Political power to strike back at a business for his daughters failing line of crap on sale?
