  1. Will President Trump run for a second term?

    Ignore me, I'm just booking the thread title for 2019.

  2. The Presidential Election of 2020

    Perhaps we should consider the platforms of the assorted candidates. I usually start a thread like this with a photo but I'm a bit stuck this time. This will do to be going on with.

  3. The Ukraine phone call

    The thread books a slot to discuss the brouhaha, since we're about to be offered the "full unredacted text" of the source material tomorrow. I'll be interested to see whose bluff it calls.

  4. Threats of violence to British Members of Parliament

    Might I just drop this into a thread? Nobody else seems to have discussed it. The background to this week's intimidation is at The other words missing from the post must...

  5. High Speed 2 review

    If Boris does nothing else useful in his role as Prime Minister, the reconsideration of HS2 makes him well worth the effort and worry. HS2 has been a white elephant ever since it was a one-page blue-sky suggestion twenty years ago. The idea of upgrading a single route on the rail system from...

  6. On the solution of the Northern Ireland backstop

    I have, I think, a way forward. The Republic of Ireland and the UK are, until Halloween, both members of the same European Union and as such have no customs border or regulation disparity with each other. The UK will stop being a member of the EU at the end of October. It is a political...

  7. Intemperate Conservatism

    This Andrea Leadsom, if we may. The bolding is mine, the words are hers. There is a view that the internet is in need of a monitor for obscene and adult websites. Outside of cyberspace, we have bodies such as Ofcom and the British Board of Film Classification that continually work to ensure our...

  8. On the departure of Theresa May from Downing Street

    I note the following observation in today's Guardian. If I may offer an alternative view: No. I can think of no Prime Minister during my lifetime who has caused such sustained unprincipled damage to the British public than she has. Nothing else she has done or failed to do has been remotely...

  9. Leak of emails from the UK ambassador in Washington

    The extraordinary leak of diplomatic briefings from the British Ambassador in Washington to the Prime Minister's office in London coincides with the final month of access to such documents by Theresa May's very small team of political advisers. It can't be hard to work out which one has a sense of...

  10. The Presidential Election of 2024

    The general consensus in the UK is that the inevitable 2024 winner of the Presidential Election will be female, Republican and 42 years old. Presumably this is a recognized likelihood in the America too?

  11. The Perpetual Repository of Alternative Facts

    "You’re saying it’s a falsehood, and they’re giving – Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that" - Kellyanne Conway to NBC, Sunday 22 January 2017. We get more and more of this, I thought we might keep track. Like when Susan Rice "inadvertently made false...

  12. An expression of thanks to Mr Farage

    That chap without whom there would be no Brexit Party, yes? Nigel. The chap who can't go walkabout without some random protester tipping a pint of McDonald's Sugared Vomit over his fresh-pressed suit. Thank you Mr Farage, you achieved several positive outcomes at the European Election last week....

    I hate to see Strong And Stable May go, she's pure comic genius, but she's not going to stay after her latest outing. We could get Gove. My goodness the country would explode with derisive anger. Mother Leadsom? I would pay them to choose Mother Leadsom. If they have an ounce of sense...

  14. Defence Secretary fired from the UK Cabinet

    Gavin Williamson has strenuously denied he leaked information from the National Security Council as calls are being made for a police inquiry. He was sacked as defence secretary for allegedly disclosing plans to allow Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to help build the UK's 5G network. ...

  15. The massacre at Amritsar, 13th April 1919

    Today marks the hundredth anniversary of the killing of hundreds of unarmed civilians by the British Army in India, at the order of Reginald Dyer. No apology has ever been made by the British Government. Here are the statements in the years after the event:

  16. Genocide

    I felt if the Syrian Kurds were to be wiped out they should have some record. I've barely heard of these people but I have heard Erdogan. If this happens, Donald Trump wanted a wall named after him. I think what struck me was the casualness with which he consigned a people to death. America and...

  17. Neoliberalism's Dark Path to Fascism

    Over the past few years, I've done quite a bit of reading on what Neoliberalism is and its consequences. This piece, in which Chris Hedges and David Harvey explore Neoliberalism, is among the better examinations I've come across. It ended up being a nice piece to sit and sip my coffee to in the...

  18. Obama, The War Criminal

    For anyone who might enjoy a good read. It's true, he's as much of a war criminal as Bush. Any president who would be against whistleblowers like Obama was must be hiding something. He sure was.

  19. 2 new Novichok poisonings

    Currently the working hypothesis is that it is connected to the attack on the Skripals - left over product dumped perhaps since Novichok is not common - but they have an open mind. That's according to the Chief Constable of Wiltshire. I don't think this was a deliberate attack by the Russians....

  20. Trump, how long can he last ?

    Just watched a video of Trump admitting he made payments to keep his girlfriends quiet prior to the election. His defence, it wasn't out of the election fund but his own money. So he wins for honesty...............with his disciples.
