      I wonder if they’ll have the full “Weekend at Bernies” honeymoon?

        I still remember the good old days before Trump stood for President when the world hadn’t gone collectively mad. ☹️

          It was well on it’s way, it just reached critical mass faster.

    Judging by the opinion polls, May seems to have stuffed up her election campaign disastrously.

    What is going on, Missy?

      Might be the Russians again Al? Anything come out on Wikileaks? I’m too busy investigating the Seth Rich ex old Mossad citizen-journalist investigation to check it out at the moment.

      A lot of theories Alan, she had a disaster with the Social Care (though as many have pointed out it is still better than what is currently in place, just not sold well), She also lost some support over promising a free vote to lift the ban on fox hunting. Mostly she went off message, she was doing well when talking about Brexit and Security (pre Manchester). Also, despite what some may think the Manchester bombing doesn’t seem to have helped, the decision of the police to request the assistance of the army didn’t go down well in light of recent police cuts, though most don’t want to acknowledge that the army were brought in to help armed police officers – which weren’t cut – and even without cuts they would have been required. The emotional argument put forward by Labour saying more police on the streets would have stopped Manchester has been picked up and believed by many on an emotional level, but they don’t realise more police officers wouldn’t have stopped it from happening at all, fighting terrorism is not police driven it is intelligence driven, May understands that but Corbyn is gaining ground by peddling some utopia with lots of police, little intelligence, and no terrorism (it is a crime, not terrorism apparently).

      To be honest I am not taking too much notice of the polls, they aren’t that accurate here, they have got some of the most fundamental things badly wrong in the past they have lost a lot of credibility amongst many.

  6. Pretty well buried by the MDM is the news that Susan Rice and others have been subpoenaed over the “unmasking”

    Not before time. Plenty of coverage given to covfefe, but this…..largely buried

    “Three of the nation’s intelligence agencies received subpoenas Wednesday afternoon issued by the House Intelligence Committee, Fox News has confirmed, with each of the three demands for documents explicitly naming three top officials of the Obama administration: Susan Rice, who served as President Obama’s White House national security adviser; former CIA Director John Brennan; and former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power.
    “The three subpoenas, among a total of seven signed by panel chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), were served on the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency, and all three explicitly referenced ‘unmasking’ – a signal that the House panel is intensifying its investigation into allegations that Obama-era aides improperly demanded the ‘unmasking’ of names of associates of President Trump that had appeared, in coded form, in classified intelligence reports, then leaked the data to news media organizations.
