    I hope that our liberal, softly softly approach of dealing with the usual wasters who turn up to protest works because Trumps close protection team certainly won't take any prisoners.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Sadly three of the "wasters" are the leader of the opposition, the speaker of the commons, and the mayor of London: all of whom seem to think their student politics allows them to insult the president of our most important ally. They should respect the office, even if they dislike the man.

    I am sure Trump is very happy that Corbyn will not eat with him: If I were trump, it would be recicprocal considering that Corbyn is a threat to the security of the western world.

    But as for Bercow trying to prevent Trump addressing parliament, it shows how much our speaker is willingto abuse his position. The rules must be changed before another speaker is appointed. He cannot decide the consitution in order to force his own politicial view. He is not supposed to express one in his actions.

    Those who think our political system is failing, should take a look at Korea. The delegation who negotiated with the US and failed have now been convicted of treason, one is believed to have been executed. However low we have sunk - it is not that far.

    Although Corbyn style militant left intimidation never ends at talk. It always ends with actions, on Corbyns planned descent for the UK to banana republic. Opposition routinely end up jailed or shot in the cubas, venezuelas, and Corbyns will be UK.

    No, he is just grammatically challenged.

    Indeed.

    Someone on the radio this morning was recalling that in 1978 we hosted a state visit by Ceausescu, the dictator or Romania.

    Now call me old-fashioned but I do respect someone who knows how to spell Ceausescu (and yes, I have visited Romania).

    meaning?
    Do you always insult those you converse with? Or only online?

    Sorry Oracle. But you do bring these things on yourself, with your wild statements.

    I was observing that you seem to have taken things up a notch. Would "frenzied" be a fair description?

    I do like to tease a little in real life too, especially friends. How about you - do you get involved in heated lengthy arguments in real life? I've heard you're quite a mild-mannered chap and that your argumentative traits are reserved for your on-line personas.

More recently we have hosted Xi Jinping, the most repressive and autocratic leader that China has had since Mao. It appears that diplomacy requires that you need to be polite to some rather distasteful characters (and I do regard Trump as rather distasteful). I'm just glad that, unlike the Queen, I can decide who gets invited to dinner at my house.

    I think the 3 ‘wasters’ that are referred to above actually are just standing up to a spoilt man-boy who is a proven racist and misogynist.
    In my opinion.
