  1. Our new position in the EU

    Rees Mogg is now in charge of the hard brexit wing. They have already made statements that would render the 2 year transition as inoperable.

    When the PDC split away, did they carry on paying money into the grassroots, county game? In snooker the money is now coming from the far east, so the game has moved focus to over there. Then again for some bizarre reason I see plenty of fans from lower league clubs want a split from SL/RFL, so maybe they will get their wish...

    I’m still very much in the be careful what you wish for camp.

    Serving in the military certainly used to be a big plus, however it also used to be a negative to be say a draft dodger, yet another issue were Trump has rewritten the conventions.
  5. Our new position in the EU

    I'm sure in the past you stated that you could see why the Euro clearing house would move from London. And that agencies would move was project fear. I might be wrong, and I'm sure you will tell me.

    Of course its sweeping, but note that he said right wing, not republicans. It is very tribal (we are going the same way here) so that it is possible to overlook great deficiencies so long as the other lot lose. Obama and Hillary were labelled as radical liberals, Obamacare is labelled as communism, etc. People voted for Judge Moore, even though they thought he was probably guilty of the accusations, just so the other guy wouldn't win. The centre right republicans have been slowly culled by the tea party wing meaning compromise and cross party consensus is going to be a thing of the past. The left wing of the Dems seem to be pushing for the same.

    If the economy is good and unemployment is low, then they certainly are (normally) plus points on a re-election campaign. Add in that (normally) being the incumbent gives a boost too. I agree all of those will be in his favour. Will Trump ever be the favourite? Probably not, regardless of who the Dems pick. Bernie Sanders or Tulsi Gabbard will bring a different sort of baggage and middle america is not a great hunting ground for 'socialists'. Obama was hated for being a 'maxist' (he wasn't), can you imagine the Fox response to Bernie?

    The polling shows how big an impact the emails story had only a short time before the election. It only took 80,000 votes to win it for Trump.

    Bots... no really....

    Is it as damaging as the Nunes press conference from March? This is his second attempt at a smoking gun. I'm more than happy for the memo to be released as I'm not that sure its as damaging as suggested.

    Might as well. Its not transcripts, memos, documents, its the thoughts/interpretations of one person on the committee.
  12. President of USA (Merged threads)

    Nunes is at the centre of it. His record hasn't been great so far.

    Russia is overseas.

    PDC split from the grassroots leaving them behind. Snooker has moved from UK to other countries as China.
