  1. Will President Trump run for a second term?

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

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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. https://consortiumnews.com/2015/11/06/obamas-criminal-drone-war/

  5. 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....

  6. 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.

  7. Well, that was an interesting G7

    I couldn't let it pass without some comment. It would be hilarious if it weren't so serious. Trump can't cope with democratic leaders but he seems to do better with dictators. Maybe he'll get somewhere with Kim, who might just be trying to get out alive with his fortune. They have a lot in...

  8. 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...

    That's what Theresa May says, anyway. PM Theresa May makes case for 'our precious Union' - BBC News (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-39151250) Ms May is misinformed. What we are, Ms May, is two nations plus a principality and a province. Put that in your pipe and...

  11. 13 Russians indicted for interfering in US election

    FBI says 13 Russians and 3 Russian organisations successfully interfered in the US elections. The detail provided by Rosenstein was remarkable, including emails from the indicted to family members saying the FBI were on to them and they were covering their tracks. That's extensive. I also...

  17. Trump restarts Middle East conflict

    Well, he hadn't dominated global headlines for a few days so he had to do something: Move the US embassy to Jerusalem. That's going to end peace in the area. I gather it was an election commitment to his far right religious support. Hypocrites who create conflict and love to feed Death. If there...

  18. What is Brexit going to mean?

    No-one seems to know. So I've sent the following email to my MP, the Honourable Zak Goldsmith, MP for Richmond Park. Dear Sir, Perhaps as an enthusiastic Brexiter you can explain to me what practical, tangible benefits the people of this country can expect to see from leaving the EU? And when...

Outside of cyberspace, we have bodies such as Ofcom and the British Board of Film Classification that continually work to ensure our...
