Who bears responsibility for the Pro-Trump Washington DC riots and why it should worry us in the UK.

After only a couple days after publishing on here my hope that politics might return to some sanity with the end of Donald Trump as United States President. Unfortunately, on the day his time came to an official end, it was realised my hopes were nothing more than wishful thinking.

In the United States, January 6th saw Congress meet to certify the Electoral College vote from Novembers election. Effectively, it would confirm Joe Biden as the victor and the end of Donald Trump’s presidency. There was also to run off in Georgia which saw the Democrats winning both battles and taking control of the Senate as well. With control of the Senate, Congress and the Presidency, this is a good opportunity for the incoming President to legislate as he wants.  read more

The comment from the first debate that concerns me about Trump!

The US Presidential election is coming up. Donald J Trump or Joe Biden. One of these two will be the victor on 3 November. I haven’t commented on US politics much but seeing parts of their televised Presidential debate the other week and some of the comments from Mr Trump [Pictured above; image from Politico] there was something I wanted to pick up on.

Make no doubt about it, the debate itself was embarrassing to watch. That said, as a Brit, we currently have to put up with his mini-me (Boris Johnson). I have so far delayed this post as Mr Trump went through his bout of coronavirus shortly after the debate and didn’t feel quite right putting this post together while he was down. Thankfully, he did not succumb to the virus. I am no fan of Trump but I do not wish Coronavirus on anyone and if Trump is to be beaten by anything this year, I would much prefer it to be the ballot box. However, it is his comments about the ballot boxes that prompt this post. read more
