TLDR of US politics at the moment:

Whistleblower makes report to the white house about Trump and some of his parties associates.


  • Trump may have just implicated himself in admitting to working to coerce foreign governments over the whole Ukraine phone call, trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden for the 2020 election, rather than the mild suggestion of cyber influence in the last election.
    *This fact alone may have ment Trump has comitted a felony in US law*
  • He has argued the phone call was wrong then later said it was the perfect phone call.
  • There is audio of trump saying they should have killed the whistleblower "like in the old days"
  • He's asking for other countries leaders (Australia, Britain)  to investigate the Muller report, even though he said the report clears his name.
  • Then he's gone to PRESIDENT OF CHINA to ask to dig up dirt on Biden, whilst admitting he'd enforce more tariffs to get his way.
  • Rudy Giuliani lied about this whole thing happening then admitted it during an interview
  • Giuliani has implicated the state secretary? as knowing about all this by accidentally showing his phone. He is also having frequent discussions with Paul Manafort, who is in jail about everything that is going on.
  • The Republican party sent out the transcript of the phone call, and responses to how to answer questions for the GOP to ALL the Democrats as well.
  • White House security has mentioned the whistleblower phone call is all above board, and perfectly valid too.

I reckon Trump was right to call out Omar and Tlaib, but he's taking it way too far now.  He needs to take a break from Twitter and pull his head in.

Yes how dare these brown skinned people question the Israeli occupation of the West Bank.

More ant-semitic than the British Labour party Razz

Corbyn has signed his death warrant with the abolition of private schools - there's no way that the British elites (yeah there's that word again) will stand for that.

No government funding is one thing; complete abolition of the system is another thing altogether.

A word that doesn't even exist in the English language, elite can be singular or plural, no "s" required.

I don't speak English, I speak my own language known as Dunstan-ese.

In Dunstanese you can cast nasturtiums on other people, mention a pacific topic and then wait with tender hooks for your escape goat.

Much more sensible than silly old English.

Trump is just as popular as Obama was at the same stage in each other's respective first terms:

Its one thing to re-nationalise British Rail (which is probably not a bad idea considering how disjointed and expensive the trains are to use over there) but another thing entirely to abolish the schools of the ruling class. Unlike Australia their private schools in the UK don't get public funding so I'm not sure why Corbyn even thinks this is a good idea.

So in that case do you think Corbyn might be taking his agenda a tad too far?

Speaking of American politics - Hilliary Clinton went on "The View" the other day to take some responsibility for her loss in 2016 - via Fox News:

“You know, I’m a serious person but I’m also a fun person but I think I probably came across as too serious… I really believed that my job, especially as a woman and the first woman to go as far as I did, that I had to help people feel good about a woman in the Oval Office, a woman commander in chief, and so, I may have over corrected a little bit because sometimes people say, 'Why can’t you be like that or why weren’t you like that.' I did feel a heavy sense of responsibility and it was such that maybe I wasn’t as loose or open as I could have been.

Maybe she just didn't offer the public something they wanted? We've discussed this on Railpage repeatedly but I think the over-arching lesson from her loss is that celebrity endorsements, moralising and calling people "deplorable" probably didn't do her any favors. Meanwhile former Trump adviser and media analyst Steve Bannon says that Hillary will definitely run again in 2020 - Vanity Fair;

Donald Trump’s exorcized White House adviser resurfaced Monday evening on Fox Business with the bold claim that “crooked” Hillary Clinton is attempting to shoulder her way back into the political arena. “She is running. She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in,” he told Fox Business Monday evening, predicting that she could take over the centrist lane from Joe Biden.

Regardless of whether or not you agree with it the "elites" won't stand for it and they'll probably stage a coup to get rid of him a la Whitlam.

So now Turkey are bombing the Kurds in Syria after Trump let them.  Talk about throwing them under the bus.  Disgraceful.

Trump needs to go.

Let's keep to the facts, Turkey hasn't started bombing the Kurds...............yet.

But it shows Trump has no qualms about jumping in bed with the wannabe dictator Erdogan. Of course once again this will all somehow be the fault of the elite.  

And just rambling for a moment, Don would be better of the with the username Pol Pot. Lets face it the Killing Fields was just an exercise in making sure the elite - you know doctors, teachers, anyone that wore glasses etc - knew their place in society Razz

In the midst of all this, has Corbyn given any specific reasons for the abolition of private schools, or is it just an expression of his own manifesto?
  mejhammers1 Chief Commissioner

@DonDunstan I agree with you. Abolishing Private achools are a tad too far. However I can understand why this is often put forward as a policy. Britain is a very class divided society. Every PM Britain has had went to School at either Eton or Harrow except for Margaret Thatcher. Look at the Tory Party. If merit was used as a basis of choosing a leader then Justine Greening would be PM. Oh but we cant have a State school educated Northerner now can we?

So upper class twits like Johnson, Gove and Grayling get the main gigs. Etonians or Harrovians.

@DonDunstan Donald Trump is in no position to call Hillary crooked, the two faced orange bastard.

At least de-fund private schools from receiving public money. Norway banned private schools and they have a very good public education system.

No technically true today.  But those Northern European nations do tend to be rather totalitarian in cradle-to-grave State control though.  ie. Home schooling is very much frowned upon.

If I remember correctly; Pol Pot, a dictator who thought is country was too left leaning, made everyone drive on the right side of the road instead.
