I understand Kim Kill All from North Korea and Poisoned Putin were the first to congratulate Trump. This will be my only post regarding Trump's election win. I am staggered beyond belief that a racist bigot, a megalomaniac, a misogynist, a 3 times bankrupt, a fantasist with zero experience of politics, an alleged sexual predator, an egocentric and a totally deranged and dangerous man could be preferred to a lying, conniving witch, a Secretary of State who abused her position by hiding hundreds of thousands of emails, a woman who refused to protect her own embassy in Benghazi resulting in the murder of her ambassador, a woman who supported her lying , cheating husband while decrying the sexual predator known as Dirty Donald and a woman still under FBI investigation for alleged irregularities into the Clinton Foundation. America how did you get yourself into this nightmare? No more from me on his win I promise.

Let's just hope his rhetoric is just that, "hot air" in the main, although to be fair, some of his policies to limit job losses by imposing tariffs on Mexican & Chinese imports seem reasonable enough ! With regards NATO, he is in accord with the organisation, but feels (probably correctly), that the USA pays more than any other member, most of whom are failing to cough up the mandatory 2% of their GDP - the problem originated, IMO, because the US saw themselves as the "world's policeman", getting involved in all conflicts world-wide, often then persuading others (like the UK) to join in. I read that the USA have armed forces operating in 120 different countries - no wonder Trump wants to curb their blood lust, although cosying up to Putin is not a wise move either. I suppose now we must at least give him a chance, after all, it was a powerful display of democracy at work, even if that surge in buying Anderson shelters is necessary for our own safety !

John can I ask who's selling the Anderson shelters as I've a spot picked out at the bottom of my garden,I'm going to try B&Q . On DT his acceptance speak was ,what's the word ,yep ,humble ,it might be sinking in now what He has done winning ,just hope that it was rhetoric bluster He spouted over the months . But Garfield,Lincoln and JFK comes to mind with the American way of life !

Sorry Bob, B&Q have sold out - could try Wickes, but they're closing down loads of places too ! I reckon Trump will calm down, 'cos as you say, it'll be sinking in just what he's done by winning - he certainly seemed (rightly) humble & respectful enough to Obama in the White House today John (JKW)

What really gets up my nose is watching all the sucking up, the arse licking sycophancy that is now taking place with Trump, Obama and Clinton. Shouldn't really be surprised I suppose but does politics really have to be so despicably low life, so desperately phoney? Rhetorical question, no answer needed. Anyway, JKW is undoubtedly right in his assertion that The Donald will likely temper his pre election rhetoric and hyperbole. I have to confess at this point that Trump simply gets right up my nose, he epitomises all that I find distasteful in politics, he is a man devoid of any sense of good taste, courtesy, philanthropy or sense of justice.The saving grace in all of this will be Pence,his VP, who has extensive experience of the US political scene and will likely become the most powerful VP in American history. Pence will most certainly lead on many of the issues usually the sole responsibilty of the president. Trump won't have enough time, inclination, experience or brain power to do otherwise than lean very heavily on Pence. There is a precedence, the  rumours that circulated about Reagan relying on his wife to make the big decisions while he was president are more fact than fiction!  Where Trump is most dangerous is the fact he has a substantial majority, a much bigger  majority than Obama has, in both houses ergo he won't be as hamstrung in steamrollering laws and edicts through. We will just have to hope he really isn't as deranged as he often comes across. I am currently calling for quotes for building a nuclear shelter in the garden, seems there is likely to be a long wait due to unprecedented demands made on local builders. A couple of days ago we were promised Clinton and snow. We got Trump and rain. A wet fart, just about sums it all up. Just remembered didn't I promise not to comment on this subject again? Perhaps I should enter politics!

David, you are far too astute to enter politics.... leave it up to the professionally insane, all of whom were put on this world to show us all what CAN happen when the lunatics control the world..... AND they all seem to have their mouth and their anus in the wrong places. And no brains anywhere.

Well since the result the $ has increased in value, the € has nosed dived, and the pound £££ has increased in value . So the big business / investors like Trump or are they just being as usual money grabbers selling one cheaply to make the stock of monies they have more attractive ,what do they call that " futures trading " or fuck you Jack I'm alright ?????

Trump and Putin best buddies (?) east meets west (?), detente (?), kick in the goolies  to Europe (?), major snub to NATO (?),who knows how it will all pan out but it is likely to be a move that will certainly have repercussions if it progresses and cause a huge amount of concern.Meanwhile the EU,headed up by the unholy alliance of Hollande and Merkel, is doing its  own best effort to destabilise NATO by forging ahead with the formation of an EU Military Force. Trump's support for Assad and for Putin's indiscriminate bombing in Syria is likely to be an equally unsettling issue for European leaders. We live in interesting times, if Trump makes good on even a small percentage of his more controversial pledges there will be troubled times ahead. Much of his rhetoric was just that,empty words, but hidden amongst all of his self created hyperbole are deeply flawed issues that betray his lack of awareness of world affairs and his ideology that being president is no different from running his business empire. The major flaw in that way of thinking is he seems to have recovered from his thrice bankruptcy proceedings where he got things disastrously wrong making the same mistakes as president, metaphorically or otherwise,  will have far greater repercussions. Like I said we'd live in interesting times.

I'm going to put the mouse in the cheese store ( sounds better than the cat among the pigeons and just as effective ) there as you know been 2 major democratic votes in 2016 ,Brexit and Trump . Both of these has changed the politics in the countries involved forever ,the U.K. out of Europe and possibly the USA out of NATO and any other agreement that the Liberal Elite have signed upto from climate change to migration over the last couple of decades . Even George W policies of involvement in foreign countries will be curtailed ( that's unless you interfere on the mainland of the USA ( and you know who's finger is on the button) ,but that might be a step too far even for him . The one thing constant in all these elections is an English guy ,not only did his thoughts and actions wether in Brussels or the UK lead the people down the road of Brexit but he popped up all over the USA over the critical weeks leading to Trumps victory . He then became the FIRST politician from any were to have coffee and chat with the NEW PRESIDENT elect , yes Nigel !! our TM only 10th on the list and as far as the ghost of the Labour Party he might get a mention if he ever became PM . So what will the next year bring us and my guess is that France will have a new president ,and Germany a new Chancellor , and whoever takes on these jobs is going to have to dig deep into their money boxes and spend on defence ,why ??? , a small bald headed guy runs Russia and like Trump he wants his country to the power house it used to be before Reagan . His support for Assad and in the Crimea /Ukraine says he's an expansionist of Russian policies ,remember the days of Cuba ,Hungary and the Prague Spring ,yes he wants to put his nose back in front . Yesterday there was a comment on radio 4 about Russia having assembled enough armed forces on the border to take back the old satilite countries under their wing ,Poland you say would mobilise ( but most of their young men work in the UK as plumbers and that goes for most of the Baltic states ) warmongering you say ,ok hold your hands up who in Jan 2016 would have thought the results of the people vote would have been such a shock to the Liberal Elite as Brexit and Trump have been . Trump at the moment is savouring his victory soon he's going set his stall out to the American people about what he's going to do ,his rhetoric for certain minorities will cause a lot of hardship ,just hope he softens it a little ,but then again I wouldn't like to an illegal or a gay and as for global warming forget it . Yes the next few months with a Republican House to back Him Donald is going to upset a lotta lotta folks , just hope Nigel can get him to trade with the U.K. So I've put my thoughts on what "could " happen ,remind me next year about November if my crystal ball worked ????????

that is if there is a next year looking at things pessimistically, agreed Putin has been rattling his sabre again and the Russian bear is starting to growl again, as he tries to bring back the Baltic states etc under his wing, we know what happened last time they flexed their military might, ( not referring to latest Crimea acquisition), the West stood by and let it happen. Remember at this time the only nation that had a realistic Atomic so called deterrent did not use it, now we are in the realms of  I have more big sticks than you so if this kicks off it will have as we know devastating effects on the world. I think however there is more to this posturing than meets the eye, Russia may have a very large and well equipped armed forces, but to keep everything running tickety boo costs more than the Russian economy can carry on paying for . Now  this has been looked at  by the Russian and Western nation bankers and it is unsustainable in the long run. The fly in the ointment so to speak is the yellow peril, they may seem to share a political belief, but overall they have been pouring quintillions of dollars world wide, and as we can see in the Chinese sea there is a group of islands that they are not only claiming, but ignoring the more legitimate claims of other Asian/Indonesian nations they are fortifying them. They have already warned off other so called super powers from interfering and used their VETO in doing so. One should also look at the amount of African nations where there is a controlling interest in what happens within their countries. You may be forgiven if you think that the Russians have not noticed this, but you only have to look at the middle East and whose borders/oil/and alliances (IRAN) etc are more under the Bears influence than the Chinese, to talk in larger  world terms I think the Russians are more worried about China than the West. I think that they are trying to establish a large power base, and are playing hard/softball with the western alliance of EU, NATO, whose political wills are quivering now that Trump has joined the party and suggested that Europe will not come under the American so called umbrella and will have to up their defence budgets considerably according to their GDP.  Along the lines of Enoch Powell and his speech, I was told well before Enoch,  the ones to worry about are the yellow peril, given that his speech ( Enochs) foresaw what was to come to fruition, I would take heed of the yellow peril warning, looking at the world stage.

Yes, Enoch DID warn of the present situation MANY years ago, but again, our leaders then did not react, and did not even involve themselves in dialogue between all interested parties. At this rate, we should all be wiped off the face of this world in the not too distant future if leaders do not get together to sort it all out once and for all. BUT they will, as usual, ignore the warnings until we are all toast, badly burnt and dispersed into the universe as bits of flotsam for eternity....Enjoy Christmas lads, it COULD be our last, you never know.....

In this world Bob, it is the only way to do normal things each day, cos worrying about loons lobbing nukes all over the place could soon become a common problem, and THEN the world will disappear into multi millions of specks of dust!! It is really great these days knowing that each day could be our communal last...besides, what else can we do but be happy????

Muslim Bookshop

I was walking through Chicago and I saw that there was a “Muslim Book Store.” I was wondering what exactly was in a Muslim bookstore, so I went in. As I was wandering around taking a look, the clerk stopped me and asked if he could help me. I imagine I didn’t look like his normal clientele, so I asked, “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump’s book on his U.S. Immigration Policy regarding Muslims and illegal Mexicans?”

The clerk said, “F#*k off, get out and stay out!”

I said, “Yes, that’s the one. Do you have it in paperback?”
