You keep mentioning that you've given solutions, Where?

Before technology reared it's ugly head, all politicians lied, cheated & con their way to the top.

Now due to technolgy, there is only one option open to them - Cheating.

Solutions? With this?

Hilary says it's a foregone conclusion, bye bye Sanders then attacks Trump

Really Hilary...

"Mrs Clinton called Mr Trump "dangerous" and said he could not be trusted in sensitive national security situations like the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden."

...oh dear, so your breach of security was just a hiccup?

None of us has been off topic. All stated so far is relevant. Haven't you already said "Past is prologue" & History often repeats"

Since the fall of the USSR you're no longer the world's policeman, but the world's No 1 bully & what has been seen for the past decade even that pails as you're on the road to world dictatorship & all for the sake of the "mighty $".

Trump/Clinton is only confirming that to the rest of the world.

Nice one. It seems that you greedy Yanks should change your tune to "In $ we trust" instead of "In God we trust".

Opposition to TTIP is growing, especially where it counts!

Another stumble for TTIP

"Labour MP Frank Field, who backed the amendment, said: "We can't have kangaroo courts, operating only to America's advantage, deciding how we should trade in respect of the NHS.""

Very surprised that the Yanks haven't kicked up a stink about this...

50 biggest US companies stashing $1.3 trilion offshore

..for every $ they paid in federal taxes, they received $27 in federal aid, totalling $11.2 trillion...

...boy oh boy, these guys can teach the Mafia a thing or two about skimming. :-)

Some interesting Panama Papers stories

My favourite one being...

Brilliant comedian but shoddy PM

Perhaps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmermann_Telegram

"Zimmermann sent the telegram in anticipation of the resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare by Germany on 1 February, an act the German government presumed would almost certainly lead to war with the United States."

Wow, over the several years visiting a close friend in Rippingdale, as well as the countless deliveries made in that area, I never knew that was there :-(

Still isolationist until early 1917. Woodrow Wilson won his 2nd term after pledging to keep the US out of the war in Europe.

The US only entered the fray after Germany resumed unrestricted submarine warfare.

If it wasn't for that, maybe the outcome & future of Europe would be much different than what it was. Who knows, maybe different right to this day.

Nice "jibe" from the opposition leader, but it would have been better if he said "a runaway train" :-)

Well got to give Trump his dues, he got this one right...

Cameron vs Trump

"I hope to have a good relationship with him, but it sounds like he's not willing to address the problem either."

Illegal schools

""The Tories' education policy has led to a fragmented schools system lacking robust local oversight to spot and tackle serious problems early on."

Now why isn't that not surprising!

Hmmm, I recall mentioning this some time ago only to be castigated for advocating war. It's a shame that many only see no further than their nose and/or see only what they want to see.

Uprising on the cards - be nice if it occurs around Easter :-)

""If Europe cannot act together to persuade a significant majority of its citizens that it can gain control of its migratory crisis then the EU will find itself at the mercy of a populist uprising, which is already stirring," he added."

Sorry old chap, it's been stirring for some time.

Europe, Latin America and Asia have suffered these 'types'. Guess it is The USA's time.

Maybe so, but this time there is a big difference. You are now the only "big kid on the block" & as seen by statements made by Trump with his walls & kicking & keeping others out, that's going to make you the target of the rest of the world rather than just a few.

You keep posting that "past is prologue" alongside that "history often repeats itself".

So when will Chapter 1 be available for reading if everything to date has been prologue?
