    That might count against him like Carrington not getting on because of R2 coverage. Don't think Hatch is very R4. The Beeb like doing crossovers especially on the podcasts, I can see Rosling making it.

    They always die after I take them off my lists. You missed the boat there! But she still got that sinking feeling. Let's hope it's not the tip of the iceberg.

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    "...stressed the need for people to respect the choice of US voters." Except it wasn't. If people are going to make comments about the US presidential election they need a crash course in the electoral college. This is a pretty good history of it. Fair point.I think the general thrust of the article was that there was an absolute hysteria surrounding his Presidency and, from this end of the Atlantic, its all the more strange considering who we have had here on State visits and there were no mass protests or summat. I don't like him at all but taking to the streets here with 'proper' placards, neatly organized by Momentum, the Anti Nazi league and the Socialist workers party wont do fuck all. Just my opinion. There was a massive protest againt Reagan in '84 and he won by a landslide. It's all part of free speech. You can't expect the 49% to roll over if the 51% vote to exterminate them. That's a bit dramatic.I was talking about the Tofu eaters of Islington going down to Westminster to register their false horror at Trumps election. Dramatic effect. Trump supporters are going to winge on about people getting upset when he abuses them because he said he was going to. It doesn't work like that. He can ahve the power but everyone doesn't have to like what he does with it.So far he has ( tried to) denied entry into the US for citizens of several countries.However some of those citizens already had US visas and/or were residents in the US anyway. That alone makes Trump a massive fucktard. The issue with denying access to the US for 'refugees' or people from other nations is separate to the idiocy of denying access to people trying to return to the US where they were already residing. He is also trying to return the US back to the dark ages by denying the right to abortion and, well, he is doing other things of a questionable nature. Im not sure who he is actually 'abusing' but he is deffo a cunt. Thing is, we all get the message, he gets the message, the World gets the message. Everybody has the right to protest but, over here, that's the green light for Left wing political activists, anarchists, the students and the middle class to take to the streets. It is rare indeed to see working class folk marching on Parliament to vent their spleen. Trump wasn't created by the disenfranchised working classes............... No he wasn't but he used them as his route to power. Do we really think he cares about miners or car workers? He has to. As you say, it was his route to power and it will be his only way of staying in power. He says what they are thinking. Whether that will be enough when they are eating rusty cars and coal dust in four years remains to be seen.

    A Night To Remember

    It's a thread of people involved in the Titanic films, NOT the Titanic itself. More specifically the Titanic film called A Night to Remember - post #1 refers.
