    So a big objection to Obama's comments, but it is fine for the Stable Genius to say that Boris would make a better pm?
    Obama was actually asked to say that by Cameron just before the press meeting...and it completely backfired. Such a pertinently false statement demonstrated they had lost or were losing the argument and were getting desperate.

    Let's increase military spending, but on European arms.

    #13: Uh, Edward, no. The people of the USA did not vote for him, he lost the popular vote by over three million votes. Who voted him in was the Electoral College, who failed to due their duty, and which should be abolished.

    Brexit or no brexit we in the UK will always have more values and culture in common with our European friends than the USA (which is not intended in any way as an insult to the US).

    Make as many as you like. Just don't ditch the common standards. Metric, of course.

    Vending is more accurate except that the UK is a partner in their development along with a few other countries. They're not doing you a favour.
    The French have a viable option at a far lower cost.

    You appear to have a higher tolerance for Trump's faux pas, lies and incompetence than even Faux News has today.
    Supporting a fool, as he trashes the place, is not the hallmark of democracy in action. Why should Trump be above criticism? And why should the people of the USA (the majority of whom voted for someone else) allow themselves to be humiliated by this idiot?
