Yank upsets the Poms ……………


“A Republican candidate has angered a seaside town in England after using its image to warn voters what could happen if they vote Democrat at the upcoming midterm elections.”


Does the thought of drinking warm beer upset him that much?

Plenty of slums in Detroit etc make that place in the UK look like paradise.


That guy needs to get out more and spend less time in Belair. :roll:

Just goes to show that you can't get away with disposing garbage in the natural environment. What goes around, comes around.

Mark Latham joins Pauline Hanson's One Nation as NSW branch leader.


How long before Latham & Hanson start arguing over their version of party policy?

I'll give them 1 or 2 weeks max.

Abbott and his ultra-conservative mates will ensure the Libs a long stay in opposition.

Bill Shorten will be smiling quietly.  :)

May the putsch go ahead, as far as I'm concerned.  ;)

A woman who spent nearly 16 million pounds ($28.8 million) at luxury London department store Harrods has been arrested after being the first person subjected to the UK's new unexplained wealth laws.


So much for the old “Ask me no questions, tell you no lies” rule.

"Well, it all started when I was a little girl.  I used to put my 20 pence pocket money into my piggy bank each week.  When my piggy bank was full, I just got another one.  Here I am at Harrods all those year's later with no more room under the bed for any more piggy banks."

I think the US shows a lot of signs of going feral.


It's not a place I would like to live or visit at least until they throw Trump out.
