British Elections

Tories losing seats? Hmmm, looks like cozying up to Trump wasn't a winning strategy.

Even if the Conservatives hang on in Parliament, Theresa May will go down fairly soon after this debacle of squandering the party's position in unneeded elections. Betting is Boris Johnson will get a turn. That should finish the Tories off good if it happens....

Mrs. May is a perfidious rat and she actually deserves this debacle.

Effects of "Dementia Tax".

Dementia Tax gave the vilified Corbyn an opening which he effectively used to expose the Conservatives' attack on the safety net.

U.S. President Donald Trump's planned state visit to Britain has been postponed after he told Prime Minister Theresa May that he did not want to come until the public supported his visit, the Guardian reported on Sunday.

Now our President's conduct has precluded a visit to our greatest ally.

Earth to Trump: They will NEVER support your visit. You're widely reviled.

It's a shame if you asked me. There was a movement afoot in Britain to line the route and moon Trump, if he'd shown up. That would have been something!

No joke, it was a real movement, and it may well be what cancelled the visit.

I have seen praise for Trump however, along these lines: "He has single handedly made right wing populist leaders unpopular and unelectable throughout the EU, and he did that in only a few months!"
