    I’ve got this mad thing. When I see the president of america and Russia standing in the same room dealing with journo questions I can only see that jaw jaw is better than the alt.

    Syria may have gone to the Russians but at least the muzzles have been sent on their way

    Populations – america 325 million
    Russia 115 million . Nothing to add to that

    Kirsty Wark, on Newshite, interviews first Nicky Morgan, then David Davis. She is then ‘delighted to welcome’ Nick Clegg. Who, surprise surprise is given a completely free rein to stick the boot in, and remoan away, with no interruptions.
    The usual level of impartiality, in other words.

    What’s with UK schools tweeting about Free summer breakfasts using a graphic from the US
    It doesn’t make sense , UK rents might be ridiculous
    But UK breakfast food costs nearly nothing
    generic breakfast cereals are less than a £1 a big box
    and 2 litres of milk cos £1

      And then everyone acts shocked when the take up is huge for free, no questions asked food. Who isn’t going to take that?

      But because the demand is high it must mean that the country is riddled with poverty and we must do more.

      If you offer something that is free, I don’t think you can accurately judge it’s take-up as indicative of a trend.

    BBC news channel on the TV. Three women discussing the papers. Total agreement on how awful President Trump is and how dreadful brexit is going to be.
    The US will no longer give any interviews to the BBC that much is clear.
    It is slowly losing all credibility. Just a matter of time now till it implodes -probably quite spectacularly.

    I’m thinking that maybe I should give up on my two nephews because they are racists and misogynists and that is what, apparently, one should do to people like that.

    They both think that caucasian people should be eliminated, especially from the northern lattitudes, where they have taken refuge from the searching rays of the sun, and replaced by the superior negroid races that have proved their ability to survive on benefits everywhere.

    Similarly they despise women, some of whom have even been known to give birth to children and to waste years of their lives trying to raise them as well-rounded individuals capable of thinking for themselves. It is well known that children shouldn’t be born in the West anyway, there being plenty of superior negroid children ‘on tap’ as it were, and if they do need to be raised then the best ‘parents’ will be two people in a ‘same-gender’ relationship, as they are best placed to induce in the child the required feelings of group self-loathing inadequacy, ensuring a (short) lifetime of dependency on NHS (a national treasure) anti-depressants.

    All part of Blair’s ‘salt and burn’ legacy.

    ‘Trump under fire after Putin meeting.’

    By this they mean they have trawled Twitter for the usual suspects who hate Trump, such as John McCain, and regurgitated their comments. The headline might as well read: ‘Trump’s opponents continue to oppose him.’ What a surprise. ‘Water is wet.’

    Could they not at least attempt a modicum of objectivity? Perhaps state what substantive topics were discussed – there must have been many – rather than zoom in on the one moment that fits their agenda and ramp the ‘outrage’ up to eleven? I would like to be informed of the facts and make my own mind up rather than be told what to think. I do not give a sh*t about ‘Russian meddling’ in the election. Countries always meddle in other countries’ elections and that was two years ago. We have to move onwards and upwards. It is all part of one epic tantrum that they lost the election and still cannot accept it.

    Anyone can trawl Twitter – we do not need to pay the BBC a fortune to do it for us.

        “The U.K. will go to the back of the line for trade deals if they vote to leave.”

        This was flagrant interference in our sacred democracy by Saint Obama done openly and broadcast across the media, not some phantom ‘meddling.’ They talk about the US democracy being ‘sacred’ when trying to build up the Russia narrative but that hallowed democracy can be repudiated when it suits their ends.

          Exactly. The outrage of foreign interference in an election is such a hypocritical piece of nonsense.

          So even if the Ruskies did try to influence the election, so what?They’re the Russians. Along with the US, both countries have been trying to influence countries around the world for generations.

          The hilarious thing as revealed in Ch 4’s interview with Gorka was the MSM trying to conflate Russian spies being charged with spying being in collusion with Trump.

      I may be misremembering but weren’t there reports several years ago of water companies being forced by government, on instructions from either the UN or the EU, to close reservoirs? It was and probably still is all part of a plan, which included the flooding of parts of Somerset, to deprive people of access to vast swathes of our own country. I’m sure it was/is a result of Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030.

    • Up2snuff says:

      taffman, it is a rather suspicious space in which to initiate a ban. IIRC, lowest or second lowest density of population in England, highest rainfall area in England and plenty of snow and heavy frost last winter which the water companies tell us is essential (better than rain) for refilling reservoirs and restocking the water table.

      Which area of England had some heavy snows all winter, especially in January-March?

      Which area of England has the best natural water storage facilities apart from its reservoirs?

      Of course, the defective memories of the BBC come into play and no questions are asked of water company Chief Executives but the BBC are always happy to drag someone from Vote Leave on to be attacked or a Chief Exec from Airbus to help the BBC attack Brexit.

      I have to say that this is quite disappointing. I see that in an earlier piece she described him as being anti-Muslim and did the usual trick of giving his full name because she couldn’t just write Tommy Robinson and leave it at that.

      I hope she never in her past had to write about Michael Caine for it must have been a nightmare having to write Maurice Joseph Micklewhite Jr. every time.

      They just have to jump on the bandwagon that he broke the law, he was rightfully sent down. The law had passed a sentence on the black cab rapist but people were allowed to call that out for being wrong. The Birmingham Six were falsely imprisoned and then released.

      But for Tommy imprisoned on a questionable politically motivated technicality reporting on crimes that we all know have been buried and suppressed for as long as possible, we should just wash our hands of him and have complete faith in the judicial system.

        Taffman, Vlad, Payne,

        There may be an explanation for Phillips’ view on Tommy Robinson, which is worth considering. Tommy’s support for the Jewish community is not wanted by the Board of Deputies.. And he is not popular among regular contributors to the BBC

        Try this from JC News

        ‘Mr Robinson made a high-profile exit from the EDL in 2015, when he announced he was leaving because the group had grown too extreme.
        But British Jewish communal organisations, such as the Board of Deputies, have previously rejected Mr Robinson’s support for British Jews.
        In 2017 the board distanced itself from the far right activist after he was said to have attended a Jewish community event in Manchester.
        “Tommy Robinson’s record of anti-Muslim provocation means that he could never be a partner of a respectable or mainstream Jewish organisation,” it said in a statement.

      Fed, Dr Fox left me wondering whether he had been ‘got at’. Doctor doctored, as it were. Or he reckons he’s got another shot at Party Leader soon and did not want to alienate potential supporters among the Remainers

      Or maybe, just maybe, there is a cunning plan going on to roll out confusion & chaos (not unlike the bow wave that President Trump often pushes out in front of his latest visit, meeting, plan, commitment, statement, etc.) all the way to the crucial October 2018 point of no return. When that is reached, Theresa May goes into semi-teary mode before Parliament and MSM and says, “I’m so, so sorry, I tried my best. I did so want to achieve the best possible Brexit for all the country.” No-one notices the crossed fingers behind her back.

      When the journos are all gone, she turns to the Remainers and says “Suck it up guys. It’s your fault. You’ve gotta live with it. Make it work or answer for it.” Turning to whatever is left of her Cabinet. “Meeting next XXXday, 9.30am. We’ll be working on the roll-out of Conservative policies to win us the next Election, OK?”

      Oh, what? Er, I think I must have fallen asleep at the keyboard and dreamed that last bit. Oww! I’ve got keyboard marks all down one side of my face.

          Fed, Dr Fox was tough but fair with Mishal last week but seemed a bit .. well, .. neutered …. today on TOADY.

          He was on record during the EU-Ref campaign as being very against the EU and for some time beforehand. I liked his reference to his first week in Parliament made this a.m. on TOADY. We know who was responsible for that!

          I think some of the strong Brexiteers in the Conservative Parliamentary Party are playing things very carefully at present. If they are in a heavy Leave constituency they know they have the backing for ‘going nuclear’ and are just being careful on timing.

          Still over three months to go to deadline A and there’s the Party Conference season to navigate through first. We may have to be very patient but vigilant, all the while keeping the faith.

    Web headline telling us all about Vote Leave being fined for breaking the rules yet no mention that I can see of Thornberry and her hubby playing the get rich game as reported by C4. Unrelated topics but the latter is much more relevant in showing the total hypocrisy of possible future ministers. The written press have picked it up (nothing I can see on Guardian website) yet the beeb seem to have ignored it. Much more of this and I can see the Winter Palace being stormed.

    My letter today to our beloved ‘leader’:

    Dear Prime Minister,

    What a remarkable achievement! In the space of a single weekend you have managed to betray democracy, country, party and yourself, proving beyond question, as many have suspected for a long time, that it doesn’t matter for whom we vote the outcome is always the same.

    We asked to leave the European Union but instead are now offered a new non-voting version of membership, something that only the most ‘Europhile’ of people could have dreamt of seeing happening in their lifetime.

    I urge you to:
    1. Sack Oliver Robbins and prosecute him for seddition.
    2. Summon all PUSs to Downing Street and tell them that we are leaving the EU and that if they are unable to implement that policy you will accept their resignations on the way out.
    3. Tell them to cascade that instruction within their own departments.
    4. Summon your cabinet and give them the same instruction.
    5. Fax the European Commission and tell them that we are leaving the European Union in March next year and from that date will be sending them no more money but rather submitting a detailed bill for a refund of payments.
    6. Remind the European Commission of its obligations under Article 3.5 of the Lisbon Treaty and if and when they feel able to act on those obligations time will be made available to meet with them in London, however they should realise that they may ‘be at the back of the queue’.

    Consider this, if government doesn’t respect the will of the people why should the people respect the will of the government?

    Yours sincerely,

      Simple solution to the problem of equal pay at the BBC. Everyone, from the DG downwards, goes onto PAYE. The total pay bill each year is divided equally between all employees.

      Execs, Controllers, ‘Talent’, Presenters, Editors, Producers, Journalists, Administrators, Accountants, Secretaries, Engineers, Security, Caterers, Cleaners, etc., all get the same money irrespective of gender, qualifications, ability, length of service, etc., absolute, total, indisputable equality. No, better than that. It will be COMPLETE PAY EQUALITY. An end to all the fuss.

      I didn’t feel she had anything insightful to say about war. Her brief, derogatory references to the Crusades suggested that she had no idea about them. War is not a silly boys’ game that can be got rid of if we only adopt a female perspective. It is the struggle between tyranny and freedom. I can’t remember her even mentioning the word “freedom”. I regret to say that I sometimes feel that women do not value freedom as much as men do. Men are prepared to fight and die to preserve their freedom. She can only stand there lecturing us today because many people in the past have been prepared to go to war to win her that freedom.

    On the Today prog’ this morning lots of people worrying about an impending water shortage after this hot, dry spell.
    Yes, it’s been hot. Yes, it’s been dry. My sweet peas are parched and my wisteria is wilting. The powers that be are threatening us with hose pipe bans, to resist washing our cars (done!) and encouraging us to shower share.
    Well ladies, if you’re in the area 😉
    In short, we’re all using too much water!
    However… I do wonder if our masters ever consider that our enormous and burgeoning population doesn’t impact at all on water use.
    Our population is now hitting the 70,000,000 mark. More people, more homes more cars, more crowding more impact on the environment and believe it or not… more water usage.
    Isn’t this just basic commonsense?
    Maybe?

      Jeff,

      We’ve had a hosepipe ban in NI for a couple of weeks now but it doesn’t seem to have affected the Roma staffed car washes at all.

      Sorry, I said Roma, I should say Romanian, as the groups of obviously Roma men I’ve seen lying about the footpaths recently smoking and joking, enjoying the sun , having taken over most the rentals in our once working-class backstreets, are obviously not ‘staffing’ anything.

      Bear in mind this is a provincial town of about 30,000 people, that has lost nearly 2,000 well paid manufacturing jobs in the past 2 or 3 years and we’ll see how much longer this is tolerated although, as is to be expected, the growing tensions appear to be unnoticed by our chattering classes and our media and political ‘elite’.

    Way back at the time of German rearmament, when Adenauer was Chancellor, the Mirror ran an outrageous cartoon by Vicky, a classic precursor of fake news. Konrad stood centre stage, hands wide open, saying ‘…and you know you can trust us’ while lurking in the background were shadowy figures of Hitler and the Kaiser. OK so far, point made, but the figures were flanked by other amorphous yet helmeted and armoured spectres – and invalidated the whole ‘message’.
    Obviously Vicky’s grasp of history was coloured by events, but even he should have known that Germany was historically one of our most staunch allies – without Blucher and his Prussians we’d have lost at Waterloo, for all its faults our royal family have been essentially German for centuries and, despite the Kaiser – Queen Victoria’s favourite grandson and the reason for ‘Bertie’s’ pathological hatred which in many respects was a major catalyst of WW1 – large numbers of front line troops felt they were facing the wrong way in their trenches.
    The point is that alliances and loyalties change with time and political expediency – and President Trump appreciates this fact, even if his prejudiced ‘advisors’ don’t. For Republican Speaker Paul Ryan to point out that ‘….Russians are not our allies’ may well be popular – and no doubt to be repeated throughout the day – but it simply reveals his ignorance and poor grasp of history.

    The BBC likes to shoot at things with everything from a hurled tone of disapproval all the way up that list to outright campaigning with bombs and bullets of persistent questioning, undermining and repeated slurs.

        fnw, you are right. It now ‘sticks out like a sore thumb’ and could cost the BBC. They previously have had a level of belovedness in the nation.

        If they irritate more and more of the 17.4m Brexit voters AND there is a significant switch of (soft/medium) Remainers to being disenchanted with the EU, that disaffection may start to extend among those people to the BBC and its bias.

        The continuing strength of the Conservative Party in the UK and the Republican Party in the USA could actually be due, in large measure, to the MSM and its attitudes.

        The BBC are playing a very dangerous game. If they lose the support of well over half the adult population under 75 years of age, a political Party may just put privatisation of the BBC in their Manifesto for a future General Election.

        With the Internet still growing throughout the world (although I think we may have another iBusiness crash, soon), the BBC’s share of home influence can now only go one way – decline.

      This Mueller chap has indicted 12 Russian Intelligence employees in Russia for spying on America.

      From CNN
      All 12 defendants are members of the GRU, a Russian federation intelligence agency within the main intelligence directorate of the Russian military, who were acting in “their official capacities.”

      Uhh? I was under the impression that was their job.

      Then Russia should indict hundreds of CIA, GCHQ and others such, for similar “crimes” against Russia, taking place at GCHQ, Langley and other places. But they wont, for they will use that info to feed those revealed with disinformation.

      This has nothing to do with spying but all about embarrassing Pres Trump prior to an important meeting. Mueller should be charged with revealing important security information.

    Racist (anti British white) political dogma is endemic in English Schools – and endemic on the BBC’s children channel. Here is a newsround feature article on the CBBC channel:
    Headline: “Black, Asian and ethnic minorities are not properly represented in children’s books
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44847385

    What you get on the BBC is the tip of the iceberg. The English school system as well as the English Universities are filled with activists teachers, activist scholars, activist lecturers and professors and like the BBC are paid for at the British taxpayers expense.

      Rick Edwards was on the Daily Politics yesterday. Grammar school, Cambridge, then into E4, then bBbc, one of an increasing number of well-educated yet indoctrinated media ‘young people’ who seem to deliberately hide any trace of their academic abilities when onscreen.

      Rick wants voting to be made compulsory, to engage young people. He didn’t mention the Labour lies on student debt that were made at the last election, a party he obviously supports, and surely the most obvious recent example of a party attempting to bribe/ hoodwink young voters and to engage. Fair enough, his bias was obvious.

      The thing is Jo Coburn didn’t mention it either, the Sun journalist present didn’t bother to mention it and neither, most glaringly, did the Conservative involved in the discussion, Suella Braverman, funnily enough also, like Rick, ex-Cambridge. In fact, the only one who did , mistakenly I think, mention students was the Labour MP Lucy Powell and she was allowed to go unchallenged, which only highlights to me their collective stupidity and an obvious complicity amongst apparent political opponents.

      Anyway, Rick also thinks there should be political education, compulsory classes about politics, the right sort of politics I’m sure, political awareness taught in schools. Which brings me eventually round to ask,

      ‘You mean there isn’t already?’

        Rich, good points. I was slightly encouraged by a recent conversation with a local man. His teenage child and their friends, all intelligent, see through the PC nonsense they are being fed at school, just say what they think the snowflake teachers want them to say, then do their own studying and research online at home. The local comp’s gender neutral loo is mocked privately, and is also used for snogging and groping! So some of the youngsters see through this PC brainwashing, but they will be very angry with people and system that fed it to them over decades. Will these bright youngsters be ones who choose to leave Britain ? What about the less intelligent children who have no books at home ? Do they believe all the indoctrination, or does their instinct tell them that is all a pack of wicked lies and social engineering, leaving them to know that the opposite is what is right and good for them and this country?

    That same Conservative government and again led by a Remainer, is ‘meddling’ in the Brexit negotiations. And of course assisted by the ‘meddling’ BBC.

        I loved Zulu when I first saw it as a boy. I was thrilled by the Zulu war chants and their charging. Their “saluting” the British soldiers at the end was very moving.
        Now when I hear of the murders of white South African farmers I feel the film may have portrayed the Zulus with too much respect and dignity. Recently I was dismayed but not surprised to learn that the “saluting” never actually happened at the real Rorke’s Drift.

    “A VETERAN children’s entertainer has hit out at “PC culture” after having Punch and Judy shows cancelled by those who believe the traditional act glorifies domestic abuse.
    Mr Punch, better known as Darlington man Brian Lllewellyn, says the “PC brigade” and “snowflakes” are to blame for his bookings dwindling.
    This week, he had a show allegedly cancelled by a school in Middlesbrough after he refused their request to ensure Punch did not hit Judy during the performance.
    He claims staff also asked if he could provide a police officer, rather than a police man, and said another school had requested that he drop the traditional ‘Minstrel’ character from his act.
    Mr Lllewellyn also had to remove Punch and Judy from his act to take part in Redcar’s Armed Forces Day celebrations recently, after concerns were raised about the depiction of domestic violence”….

    Big PR puff for the new Doctor Who in The Times today. Nothing about the actual content, of course, but reams about how it will inspire girls to aim higher and super heroes should be women.

    What if the typical super hero qualities are grounded in biology? Men on average take more risks, are physically stronger etc. Women want a knight in shining armour and men aspire to be that knight. These differences are hard-wired in us through millions of years of evolution; the archetypes of our collective unconscious that Jung and Jordan Peterson speak of cannot be undone by some SJW. The idea women do not become super heroes is not because they never see such representations on screen but for profound biological and evolutionary reasons.

    I suspect that female superheroes will always strike a jarred note as they contradict some fundamental reality about gender differences which I struggle to fully articulate; none of the female super hero films have been anything like as successful as the male ones. Men naturally aspire to protect and provide for women and a super hero is that ideal writ large.

      Clearly there are absolutely no lengths to which they will not go to stop Brexit and at that point it hit me. This is going to end in violence. Likewise in the USA where the very thought of Trump and Putin trying to sort their differences has Trump’s opponents acting like madmen. Suddenly those who thought George W should have questioned the intelligence he was being given are aghast at Trump doing just that.

      At the moment I am just in an observational stage (BBC website) – and currently fail to pick up on timing issues such as what you have flagged up regarding MPs & key votes in parliament. Ps it didn’t take me long to realise that “bias” doesn’t properly account for the BBC output. A far stronger set of words are needed to better account for it. I would call it a type of socio-political activism.

        I think Pounce needs to recognise what is important and what is not important. I think he is a strong supporter of the bombing of Assad and Assad forces – and seemed to be fairly sensitive towards opinion more sceptical of that approach.

        He took particular issue to those suggesting that Assad may not have bombed a rebel held region of Damascus with Chlorine canisters – a few days before the rebels were due to evacuate the area. Since then I have seen some indicators that Assad forces may have dropped a few Chlorine canisters. This was certainly covered by the BBC in the inimical BBC style and hence an appropriate topic for discussion.

        We are all human and I always try to give people leeway because of it. I could certainly tell that Pounce was not a happy bunny. I did try to lighten the tone in that discussion and emphasised how important his voice was to this forum and how much appreciated he was. But ultimately all bunnies have to grow up or they could end up as rabbit stew.

          He was an invaluable contributor on military & strategic matters. The chlorine thing is interesting as it is only recently that that has been revealed. At the time it was claimed to be something else, Sarin was one, but also another gas of which memory temporarily deserts me.

          I noted the Chlorine confirmation, was it last week on the Beeb?, and thought ‘It probably wasn’t Assad then.’ Chlorine, IIRC, is not hard to do and would be within the scope of a rebel group. The canisters, IIRC, didn’t look too damaged in photos by their alleged fall from a helicopter.

          Don’t think Pounce was too upset about that but he’s a busy guy with his own Blog. Thanks for the link, Kaiser, I was actually going to ask for that to be posted here again.

          Seem to recall there were some security issues on his Blog, too, that he may have been busy sorting out. Trouble with having your own Blog is that they become a real ‘ball & chain’.

    The msm and the remoaners are working themselves up into a frenzy about a supposed case of electoral fraud where opinions differ over how some money was allocated.
    Some (soames) are calling to scrap the referendum result and start all over again.

    Just imagine how crazy they would have gone if £9 million was spent on a booklet, sent to every house in the U.K., telling us to vote leave and saying everything to do with remaining would be disastrous.
    Good job nothing like that happened eh!

      And the photograph appearing alongside the Vote Leave spending story is of……
      Vote Leave mugs.
      The bBBC is not sending out a message there is it?……surely not, not from our trusted impartial £3 billion+ national treasure?!!!

      Quite right Emmanuel,

      Thank goodness the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the head of the CBI, the Governor of the Bank of England, the President of the United States and the UK’s national broadcaster didn’t try to influence the vote or we really would have a case of fraud on our hands.

        third, don’t forget two previous Prime Ministers trying to stir up the threat of terrorism to make us vote Remain!

    .”Victory unexpectedly smiled on us, and the peoples asked that those promises should be made good.
    Naturally, expectations ran high. What has happened?
    The governments now answer in effect:
    We will promote your interests, but without your co-operation or assent.
    We will make the necessary arrangements in secret behind closed doors.
    The machinery we are devising will be a state machinery, not a popular one.
    All that we ask of you is implicit trust.
    You complain of our action in the past. You have good cause.
    You say that the same men are about to determine your future.
    Again you are right. But when you affirm that we are sure to make the like mistakes, you are wrong, and we ask you to take our word for it.
    You complain that we are politicians who feel the weight of certain commitments and the fetters of obsolete traditions from which we cannot free ourselves;”

    “By debarring the masses from participation in a grandiose scheme, the success of which depends upon their assent,
    the governments are indirectly but surely encouraging secret combined opposition, and in some cases Bolshevism.
    The masses resent being treated as children after having been appealed to as arbiters and rescuers.”

    From The New York Herald September 14 1919.
    Quoted in Emile Joseph Dillon. “The Inside Story of the Peace Conference”.
    About The Treaty of Versailles, an earlier internationalist failure.

    Busted, the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation

    “Busted ! ” shouts our well-upholstered BBC anchor Simon McCoy on the News Channel at 2pm. If the BBC were tabloid, eh? This was a rather obviously unbalanced and somewhat juvenial expression of BBC anti-Brexit office culture that slipped into McCoy’s headlining of the rap over the knuckles meted out by the establishment Electoral Commission to what must seem in their eyes the annoying errant snot-nosed kid that was the Leave Campaign. Expect no such investigations into the slimy whiny goody-two-shoes teacher’s pet establishment-backed Remain Campaign.

    You just have laugh at the bias these days and admire the brass-neck of the pro-EU BBC. The editorial language is risible. On the EU Japan trade deal our Simon insists there will be “almost completely no tariffs” Inappropriate adverb use, anyone? To borrow a favourite BBC phrase – many would say…. “almost completely” is an oxymoron. Oxbridge BBC journos, eh? You have to laugh! Of course we know perfectly well why the BBC are so keen to big up this EU Japan deal.

    McCoy is now keen to bring us a Remainer Tory live on air from Westminster so the jovial chap continues to shoot the breeze with the gurning giggling Chris Mason for so much airtime that the guilty school boy-like Mason at last admits “We’re waffling”. Eventually the tardy and obscure anti-Brexit liberal-Tory MP arrives to say his piece and complete the BBC’s idea of a job well done. Balanced? Hardly. Brussels Broadcasting Corporation. Busted.

      I really hope no one here heard the World at one – with the head girl now sitting on the throne .

      The first 22 minutes was the leave campaign allegedly spending 700k more than it was meant to – at least 5 minutes of chooka the moona s speach to the Commons calling for a public inquiry over the brexiteers campaign and saying that the money caused brexit .
      This was followed with a queer Asian grass who , no doubt in the pay of Soros , infiltrated the leave campaign and is now full time undermining it . He sounded unhinged .
      After the brexit kicking came 5 minutes of anti President Trump poison . Then came the off switch . I’ve never heard TWATO before and that was the last time hopefully .

      2 years of brexit denial ….
