    You might need to be scots to appreciate the humour in this but donald trump is coming to the Uk at the height of the orange order marching season. It's got us laughing anyway.

    That means for five years he dodged the draft.
    I remember the night they announced the lottery numbers. I heard my birthdate had a really high number, 326, I think. I would have been much happier if we had not been in the middle of cleaning the barracks for an inspection by the division commander the next day.

    He's going to be met by hordes of cheering freshly oranged up brexiters looking like a collection of evil Oompa-Loompas, welcoming their hero.

    St Donald and St Vladimir - the patron saints of brexit. The epitome of what brexiters aspire to be, our future mapped out in their plans for adoring, worshipping brexiters to cheer about.


    Brexiters - the worst curse this country has faced since the nazis.

    I think I know why there is so little shift from brexiters even though it's increasingly obvious brexit is a total disaster.

    IT'S BECAUSE THE COWARDS ARE DELIBERATELY AVOIDING THE NEWS.

    They don't like how things are developing so they are sticking their fingers in their ears and ignoring the whole thing. Apart from the extreme far right and left who like how things are going.


    Never forget that brexiters are responsible for brexit and its consequences. Never let THEM forget it. If we get the food and medical shortages the government predicts and you can't help everyone then help Remainers, but let brexiters eat the words they used to promise how easy it would be and how rich we would all be after the simplest deals in the history of the world. Lying bastards. (You might feed their kids, but brexiters should be able to live on brexit promises. If they can't - no loss.)

    The Health Secretary telling businesses it is "inappropriate" to say what they will do in the event of a hard brexit - they will leave but they are not supposed to say so. "Inappropriate"? Could it be because it exposes brexit lies for what they are? Could it be because the ONLY appropriate thing to discuss in terms of brexit is the unity of the Tory Party?

    The reality:

    The term "Project Fear" has been used by some pro-Brexit campaigners to denote alleged scaremongering by those in favour of remaining in the EU.
    "Airbus have been one of the first companies to stick their head above the parapet and explain how distressing and how worrying the government's current direction of travel is," Labour's shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey told BBC Radio 5's Pienaar's Politics.
    She said she had been told in private meetings with UK business leaders that if the government went into a "no deal" Brexit scenario "it would finish them and they would have to close their sites".
    (my bold type. Quotation from the BBC)

    The belief that the EU pays any attention to our no deal threat is so stupid you have to be a brexiter to take it seriously. The only way to deal with that sort of stupidity in negotiations is to call the bluff. If we walk away we cripple our economy and starve ourselves. Brexiters don't care as long as they can blame someone else.

    The ONLY thing that is starting to reconcile me to brexit is the thought of the ****s responsible suffering the consequences along with the 50 million people who didn't vote for Putin's plan.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Re: Will President Trump run for a second term?

    Today's something of a decision day as far as President Trump's choice to run for a second term is concerned. The mid-term election fully resets the House and a third of the Senate. If both retain their Republican majorities the President is so going to gloat.

    He's certainly put a lot of effort into the run-up. I think he stands a better than even chance of retaining the present majority across Congress. By this time tomorrow we'll know.

    I am not making any bets. Today I voted for more Demoncrats than I have in the past 20 or more years. Not that it is anything more than symbolic on my part.

    Re: Will President Trump run for a second term?

    There are now an increased number of Republican Senators retaining their Senate majority. The House now has a Democrat majority for the first time in eight years.

    President Obama had a House minority for his final six years, President Trump seems to have the same position today.

    President Trump now has the ideal excuse in 2020 - his policies have been blocked by the Democrat majority in the House. He'll ask for a second term and a Republican majority across Congress.

    So, who's going to run for President in 2024?

    Re: Will President Trump run for a second term?

    Here we are - commentary from the BBC:
    Even handing over power to Democrats in the House may have a bit of a silver lining for the president.

    Now he will have someone to blame if the economy takes a turn for the worse (and, given business cycle realities, it might). He's got a ready-made explanation for why he can't get anything done in the next two years - and a pitch for what needs to change in the next election.

    Day in and day out, he'll have a set of clear political opponents to contrast himself with.

    The only thing that saved the GOP in the Senate was that very few Republican senators were actually up for reelection in 2018. They did pretty bad considering they had a 2 to 1 advantage. Of course this probably means they will have a lot of losses in 2020 when the advantage is reversed.

    As for the house helping Trump make excuses, he never had any issue with throwing his own party under the bus. Trump doesn't need excuses though. He just makes up stories about everything being a success. And then he personally mocks people who question the success.
