  • That’s great, Paul.

    What a huge gap there’s going to be when he completes his term. The thought of Trump sends shivers….

    There’s another bit on the BBC News today showing the great man. Well worth a watch.

    David Raw 25th Feb ’16 – 12:21pm after ‘Super Tuesday’ Cruz and Rubio have more delegates than Trump, but could they work together? Are their egos and ambition getting in the way so that one or both will drop out? Who would be VP?
    Imagine Christian Democrats and Social Democrats working together in Germany.
    Imagine Fine Gael and Fianna Fail negotiating a coalition in the Republic of Ireland.
    Imagine building an institution that prevented France and Germany going to war.
    All these things are obviously impossible, that is common sense, so it is probably up to Clinton to stop Trump.

    First Tories are Nazi's and now Labour are Stalinists. This is way over the top and not doing us any favours.
