He ran into his foot as much as anything.

The Andrew Interview.

The fact is Epstein was NOT private about it!

He arranged orgies, frequently featuring underage girls, for the rich and famous, attended by politicians, Billionaires and royalty from all over the world. It was well known to the authorities, but he was considered untouchable because of his connections.

The private island where he lived was widely known as “Orgy island” and “Pedo Island” by those living nearby for decades.

His private jet was known as “the Lolita express” by all and sundry.

I believe the prosecutor in charge of his first trial, was told by his superiors to drop the case as he was a “person of importance” to the US government, and he ended up getting a scandalously (and suspiciously) lenient sentence. He knew too much about too many powerful people to stay alive when convicted second time around.

Even weirder to call the women’s team “Welsh” Fire, when they are playing all their games In Bristol and Somerset.

Quite.

Unacceptable behaviour from an “adult”, yet alone the Prime Minister.

Also I note the leader of the house made a bizarre statement in which he claimed they would re-run the Letwin amendment vote on Monday (which of course they cant), then left in a huff before taking any questions or points of order.

Good to see such maturity, integrity and competence at the heart of our government.

Errrr.... what?

So Chamberlain was right and Churchill was wrong?

So we should have let Hitler and the Nazis just get on with it? That would have led to a bright future for us all I’m sure!

Indeed very ironic.

THIER agreement is illegal due to a law THEY put in place to prevent someone agreeing what THEY just agreed.

And they’ll probably blame “remainers” for it! Brexit in a nutshell.

Has anyone noticed that the “new” withdrawal agreement is actually illegal yet?

The Taxation (Cross-border trade) Act, 2018.
Part 6
Subsection 55
Paragraph 1.

“ It shall be unlawful for Her Majesty’s Government to enter into arrangements under which Northern Ireland forms part of a separate customs territory to Great Britain.”

Awkward. Looks like Boris would have to go to court again to get this through anyway!

He lied to the DUP’s faces in a speech their own conference last year!

At the prospect of customs checks at the Irish Sea, or NI being subject to some EU regulations:-

“No, British, Conservative Government could or should sign up to any such agreement.”

And there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Boris Johnson in all his mendacious and duplicitous glory. Why does anyone, ever, trust anything he says? I just don’t get it! He’s not just a terrible Prime Minister and politician, but is proving to be a terrible person as well!

Sadly not. It’s worse in most respects than Mays 3 times rejected deal. And if your in any doubt about this, don’t ask me, ask the Governments own figures and analysis.

He says he’s gotten rid of the backstop, which was terrible because it potentially could have kept NI subject to EU regulations and there could be border checks between NI and the rest of the UK........

......... by agreeing that NI WILL be subject to EU regulations and there WILL be border checks between NI and the of the UK!

Fair play, that’s hilarious bullsh*terry at its finest!

Where does the UK's responsibility begin and end with this?

You would be surprised at the number of “callous people” about these days.

Probably something to do with this sort rhetoric from prominent politicians:-

"The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don't kid yourself. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families,"

Donald Trump, (Fox News, 2015).

Chilling.

Indeed. That’s not even conjecture or opinion. He said on live TV when asked about the possibilities of IS fighters escaping, that it’s fine because they’ll all come to Europe! Also implied that European nations would deserve such an outcome for not dancing to his tune!

They have been treated poorly since they were shafted by the “great powers” in The Treaty of Lausanne (1923). Left stateless, Kurdish majority areas were split into 4 other countries, trapping them as a minority in all.

This is just the latest disgrace in a long history of shameful betrayals and meddling in the Middle East. And some in the “western world” wonder why the UK/US/Europeans aren’t particularly popular in the region.

I am yet to see any real explanation for abandoning the Kurds in this manner, yet alone a valid argument.

The only thing Trump has put forward is that it’s okay, because the Kurds didn’t help the US in WW2! Beyond nonsensical, and completely irrelevant.

Does anybody think this is not a strategic mistake, as well as being morally disgraceful? Can anyone defend Trump here? Not even his own incredibly partisan political allies are defending this one!

Disgraceful from Erdogan as well. Absolutely no interest in helping to fight ISIS when they were on their border, but as soon as the Kurds defeat ISIS they want to invade Northern Syria to set up what they call a “safe zone” or “peace corridor”. Except it won’t be very safe or peaceful for the the Kurds living there I expect.

“I, in my great and unmatched wisdom”

No doubt in my mind that he genuinely believes this.

That aside, the Pentagon seem to be denying this is even happening, so seems to be a case of Trump trying to personally command the US military and conduct foreign policy via Twitter, on a whim.

Someone call a nurse, the President has 5hat himself on the internet again!

Latest polls suggest the UK is showing signs of breaking up.
at 11:43 12 Sep 2019

Odd that there didn’t seem to be the third option on the poll. That is Northern Ireland as it’s own independent nation.

By the logic of Brexit this is the perfect solution, as it pleases almost nobody in equal measure!

Let’s be honest here. Brexit has pretty much confirmed the future break up of the UK. Scotland within 10 years, NI within 20, and most likely Wales will follow suit within 30! The momentum will snowball and there will be no stopping it. Like it or lump it, I see it as almost inevitable now.
