    I’ll stay away from news for the next 20 hours as it’ll be a silly speculation circus
    What will be, will be, I won’t frazzle my brain.

    The road to end of the metroliberals ruling over the common man will be a long one
    and sometimes there is a step back before step forward.

      I’m with you there. Ideally I’d go cold turkey on any news or internet for 24 hours, but I think curiosity will be too strong.

      If Trump doesn’t win, and I don’t think he will, I’ll need to make it a week of cold turkey, I suspect. The media will be utterly unbearable.

    Kat Gocha Question Burley
    ..didn’t do much homework o Gorka ploughed through her
    eg in the middle she asserted
    that “the Proud Boy are a Far right group”
    Gorka “Who is their leader ”
    Burley “I know nothing about them”
    Gorka “So you think far right groups have non-white leaders, don’t be ridiculous”

    When I feel pessimistic about politics I usually can get a fix of Dr Steve Turley on Turley Talks. It didn’t work today. I’ve got a bad feeling about this. Trump did not handle the Covid 19 issue well.
    He may have lost just enough support to lose this election. I am sceptical of the red surge. Very sceptical.

    But I really want it to happen.

    Oh Hell.

    Funny isn’t it – although we are thinking about another country – I have the same feeling I had before the last election – it went “ how could anyone vote for Corbyn ?” And despite my pessimism knew the people wouldn’t do it .

    I feel the same about Biden now – unless their counting system is so faulted across states that the election is won by massive fraud …

    I have just watched Steve Turley’s latest bulletin. According to him the Democrat campaign team have given up on winning Florida and Pennsylvania. This is good news if correct. Hmmm.
    I think Dr Steve would have been able to put a positive spin on the sinking of HMS Hood by the Bismarck had he been around at the time.
    But here’s hoping.

    I turned on R4 (LW) at midnight for some news. The BBC are doing some multi-channel thing. After some brief headlines, it was straight on to an interview with Mary Trump, who recently trashed Donald in a book. She was predictably critical and negative, with no acknowledgement of any possibility of voting fraud by Democrats but plenty on alleged voter suppression by Republicans. Not a promising start …

      Reminds me of Grosvenor Square…

      (I was in the ‘Barley Mow’, in Duke Street, with several chums back then. When we realised that things were getting serious, we had a few more pints, then wandered outside to see that our car was going to be the next one towed away…)!

      Trump became the bookmakers’ favourite about an hour and a half ago. He was projected to win 303 by the amazingly accurate Trafalgar Group, although he’s currently behind in Arizona but looks likely to win Wisconsin which are two states Trafalgar had the other way. It’s looking very good, and he has a huge lead in PA, but it’s imperative he gets as many pointso on the board tonight as possible as the Dems will do their best to cheat him out of Pennsylvania and possibly North Carolina.

    Katy has a new favourite term ‘voter suppression ‘ where she asks a liberal ( coloured ) American commentator … who says he has no knowledge of it but has ‘heard ‘ that the usual voting centres have been changed – making it ‘difficult ‘ for voters to find .
    This , obviously , highlights one of the weaknesses of democracy – that even the thickest have a vote..

    As for Brillo – s final BBC gig – he can only be doing it for the money / ego as his heart doesn’t seem to be in it ….

    US result on a knife-edge

    Donald Trump and Joe Biden during the final TV debate

    If you’re hoping to find out the outcome of the US election, head straight to our live page for the latest. As News Daily goes to press the result is on a knife-edge. Donald Trump is so far doing much better than the pollsters predicted but, as expected, it’s all going to come down to what happens in key battleground states. Those include Ohio, Texas and Florida – leaning Mr Trump’s way – and Arizona – where challenger Joe Biden appears to have a lead in a once reliably conservative stronghold. Other so-called swing states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and North Carolina are too close to call. Turnout is likely to be the highest for a century.

    Our correspondent Anthony Zurcher says the early and mail-in votes trended toward Mr Biden – as predicted – while the election-day results have favoured Mr Trump. The outcome in Arizona could be crucial, he adds – this is why. Addressing a socially distanced rally in Delaware, Mr Biden told supporters to “keep the faith”, adding: “We feel good about where we are. We believe we are on track to win this election.” As his rival spoke, Donald Trump tweeted: “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the election.” He has long been critical of the voting system – read more on that.

    The race for the White House has been long and bitter – here are the highlights, if that’s the right word. Control of Congress is also at stake – that’s the part of the US government that writes and passes laws, and can make all the difference to what a president is and isn’t able to do while in office.

    We have charts showing all the latest data, and if the whole thing just feels overwhelming, read our very simple guide to the election.

          The Democrats and their media allies have tried several tricks in the last 24 hours. After their shenanigans in Pennsylvania didn’t work (Trump is up by over 700k votes with only 500,000 postal votes left to check), Fox News called Arizona when there were still well over a million votes to count and Biden led by less than 150k. Then there’s confusion around Georgia, where the NYT claims there are still hundreds of thousands of votes left from Atlanta which could overtake Trump, yet everywhere else states that over 99% of their votes have been counted, so who knows what’s correct. And Trump was also leading Wisconsin by 100k with Milwaukee left, which decided they weren’t going to count tonight – how convenient.

          Twitter is predictably awash with leftists calling Trump ‘fascist’ and an ‘autocrat’ for wanting election integrity maintained. He is quite correct that it’s ridiculous to still be counting votes days after an election date that’s been known for years in advance. This has nothing to do with the COVID situation, either – the Democrats have been doing this for decades.

          Whatever the outcome, it’s yet another embarrassment for the BBC and the liberal media who claimed Biden was a certainty.

Anti trump bias …

    Incidentally Mr Raab put Brillo in his box as a ‘pundit ‘ – which he is … Brillo is just a journo – doesn’t achieve anything – apart from reporting on others who do…. a bit too grand too often …

      From the live text feed:

      Trump: ‘We’re going to the Supreme Court’

      “With millions of legitimate ballots left to count, Donald Trump has declared an unsupported victory.

      “Frankly we did win this election,” he claims, speaking in subdued tone. He suggests – without evidence – that election “fraud” has occurred.

      “This is an embarrassment to our country,” he says, adding that he plans to go to the Supreme Court to fight election results.

      Millions of votes in the 2020 election are yet to be counted and the president has no credibility in claiming a victory.”

      Notice again how this is not presented as an opinion piece but as fact. It’s not a quote from someone they’re reporting, it’s their absolute editorial line. This is in spite of the several instances of provable election fraud and voter suppression already discussed on these boards. Ignore your own lying eyes and common sense – it’s just fact in BBC land that there is no voter fraud and all remaining ballots are legitimate.

      It’s like they’re trying to cause civil unrest, which is the opposite of their Charter.

      I think I have been watching BBC coverage for over 2 hours and not a single Republican trump supporter has been interviewed – only Nigel Farage – who is a foreigner …not a US voter …. or resident …
