Trump announces support for May over Russia: “with the UK all the way”.

In other news, Trump sacks Secretary of State after Rex Tillerson makes series of statements about Russia's meddling in Western affairs and attacks on British soil.

Hmmmm

For the Tories, Sovereignty equals whatever is in the best interest of themselves / their donors.  Clearly the Skripral incident has got their Russian donors spooked.To quote Camelot, "it could be you!"
It's terrifying. Brexit is spiralling out of control. It was never a good idea anyway, but could at least have been handled in a way that didn't wreck the economy and the social fabric of the UK. (The smart move – beyond not doing it, after a period of due diligence – would have been joining EFTA and entering into a customs union, but no. We just get idiots yelling IT WILL ALL BE FINE, when it very clearly won't be.)

Aye, plus we get absolutely nothing from the opposition because they are all scared of the 'will of the people' [should be spoken in the same tones of voice as 'the greater good' a la Hot Fuzz].  Blair damaged the UK's international reputation with his unwavering support of Bush but Cameron looks set to have done far more damage with his spineless fear of the nutters in his party.  We are paying the price in endless austerity.

I have never met an Irish person as interested in shamrocks as every Irish person who meets Trump appears to be.

WW3's up next and I've barely any tinned food in the cupboards.  Damn this healthy eating kick.

To see Trump and May up there parroting the old familiar lines with even less sincerity and coherence than the usual cast, and know that the only reason either of them (or their regimes) are remotely interested in gassed brown muzzies-or-whatever is the potential for distraction from their circling of their own domestic plugholes...  it's making me so angry it feels like I have permanent indigestion. 

How I wish they would just blink out of existence like the predictable, lacklustre nightmares they are.

Now all I have to do is coordinate the Writers' Block and Strontium Dog CGI Movie Announced by Lionsgate Entertainment threads and my conspiracy to install a New Forum Order will be almost complete.

Excellent. Now fetch me a kitten smoothie while we wait - and don't skimp on the whiskers.
