[Update] Frank’s fp story - Trump's triumphant trolloping tirades
Inviting the U.S. potentate on a State Visit ... all along on a path of a no-deal Brexit. Let Nigel Farage do the talking in Brussels. WTF
'Rolling out the red carpet is a disgrace': readers on Trump's state visit | The Guardian |
'Surely an unprecedented move in the history of diplomacy?'
Absolutely despicable for a visiting head of state to arrive in a country and directly insult the mayor of its capital city before they've even left their gigantic phallus of an aircraft. Surely an unprecedented and boorish move in the history of diplomacy? Jeremy Hunt's spineless deflection of this insult reveals how far the UK has fallen - how far, indeed, the Tories are willing to go on putting up with this humiliating farce.
That the US is demanding the NHS be on the table in a post-Brexit trade deal is the most damning verdict yet on this decade of Tory misrule.
The fact Trump has brought along his family, who, by all accounts, seem to consider meeting the inordinately dull Windsors to be the highlight of this visit, tells us everything about the tackiness of his brood. Not least, their shameless fantasy of becoming the reigning dynasty of an American monarchy. (Macacademiac)
'hat the British state has rolled out the red carpet for Trump in this way is a total disgrace'
That the British state has rolled out the red carpet for Trump in this way is a total disgrace. Worse, it is politically and strategically inept. If the UK were a party, people would be tearing up their membership cards in disgust and dismay at how it has lost its way. Thank goodness it isn't, and the people of Britain have a reason to stay and turn back the tide. (David Loveday)
