    Better a brainless, racist, misogynistic fuckface than a covert children-slaughtering machine then?

    Anyone could come up with a far more reasonable approach on the Middle East than Hillary really.

    Well his first move after winning was to contact Netanyahu. I'm sure he scolded him about the settlers.

    they keep talking about an imminent election here (prime minister can't gather broad consensus etc) and if that happens we're screwed too, there's a new popular populist party ON THE BLOCK (Nye Borgerlige) and it ain't pretty

    Yeah, let's get Jill Stein around the table with Netanyahu and Abbas, she can sell them some of her dreamcatchers and musky oils. If she's not going to use her tremendous political nous to outpoll Harambe then she's not going to achieve world peace.

    I tweeted the picture of Bernie but people have quite rightly pointed out that it is from the DNC.

    Here's what the electoral college would have looked like if 1 in 100 Republican voters had voted for HRC instead:

    I thought we'd all accepted that there will never be peace between Israel and the Palestinians and that there ill never be an independent Palestine?

    Are there any betting odds anywhere for Trump to be impeached in his first year in office?

    I saw another one from this morning saying 'Make America white again'. Like how it originally became white when all those immigrants came over and fucked shit up for the indigenous folk?

    I loathe Trump as much as anyone else. but unfortunately I doubt the Democrats are going to learn the lesson that needs to be learned from this.

    Hillary Clinton was an utterly appalling candidate from day 1. She is such a part f the establishment and political elite that in the current climate it should have been obvious that she was a weak.

    Has the establishment not learned anything from the anger of the Occupy movement; or the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The US (and UK) is running a free market neo-liberal capitalist oligarchy that is creating massive wealth for a tiny number of people; while removing money and security from the electorate.

    I don't believe that Trump's supporters or the 52% of Britain who voted for Brexit are racist, misogynist scum (although these elements find their home here).

    The support for scum like Trump and Farage and May is a howl of rage. Self-sabotaging true in their minds anything is preferable to the stagnant, change nothing status quo.

    Labour in the UK is in trouble under Corbyn - but if it can start representing the economic interest of its base - rather than the neo-liberal crap espoused by Blair; Brown and Miliband then it should be able to recover.

    Say what you like about Corbyn but he's a better hope for Labour's future than the beige nothingness of Blairism.

    A Big D premiership would surely see the nationalisation of weave salons, nail bars and savoury pastry manufacturers.

    She'd be like a young Grace Mugabe.
