  1. Not being a billionaire myself , not even once over , I'm not sure how they work but I'm almost sure that to achieve such wealth you are supposed to have , not friends but a series of friendly aquaintances - people you befriend or shun depending on how things are going or how you may think they go in the future. Personally I always preffered having a few beers down the pub with my mates !
  2. I'm sure it's all an unfortunate misunderstanding and some sort of Solomic solution will be found . For a nation who , apparently , hate confrontation they sure like to rough it when it comes to politics .
  3. Due to Trumps brilliant negotiating skills , honed in the cut and thrust of countless New York real estate deals - plus the good cop/bad cop routine with Mcmanus ! Poor Kim never had a chance ................
  4. So the people who voted out were fools? Must have been the same ones who weren't permitted a vote to go in. Into the EEC, that is; not the EC, not the EU. I had an old friend who is rabid anti EU - going so far as to stand as a Referendum party MP years ago , financed by Sir James Goldsmit . He assured me on 25 June 2016 the drop in the pound was just a " temporary thing ' - my answer was that since he's been living in the same house for 45 years in Twickenham and still hadn't managed to install central heating - it would be foolish for me not to believe him .
  5. Hmmm I thought they were all lovely girls and had a heart of gold .....
  6. Seems some people on this board dont like Kim 3rd ..........
  7. When I lived in Rangoon sorry Yangon many years ago they used teams of prisoners (chained !) to clean up the streets . Just a thought .
  8. Jingt , you left out the next two words " de facto" - ie while he was officially " employed " 138 days he only lasted a few weeks on the job - someone else stepped in on an unofficial basis - you could do it in those days .
  9. Far be it for me to defend Trump but I am old enough to remember Billy Clinton (1992 campaign) when he picked his communications director , had a similar long name - George Stephanopoulos - he was a total embarrassment and only lasted a few weeks longer .than Tony and was replaced. George and Clinton however , were supposed to be polished , experienced politicians and not real estate moguls and talk show hosts.
  10. The impeachment process takes too long , I believe the onset of Alzheimers will bring the process to an earlier end . There are already some signs of this - repetition , etc .
  11. Mmmm - no change there then - one year on - - just the near 20% drop in my monthly pension cheque . 1
  12. In Trumpspeak the response to this tragic situation would be that he prefers healthy to sick politicians ..............
  13. All screwed up from the start , there was that red bus with 50 million written on it . Oh and I remember Nigel on tv bragging about how the pound went UP when they announced the Brexit referendum - of course that was in January 2016 and it was actually the dollar going DOWN against every currency in the world for some other reason altogether . Quite amazing that a political party leader would tell such porkies on the BBC.
