The United States Embassy Now Has Its Own Bus Stop

I passed the new United States Embassy today on a 156 bus.

Will President Trump use it to get to the embassy?

The Price Of Lust

Stormy Daniels once appeared in a video called The Price Of Lust.

I’ve no idea, how good it is from any perspective!

Is Donald Trump going to pay?

Islamic State ‘Beatles’ Duo ‘should be tried at The Hague’

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the first two paragraphs.

Two captured British fighters should be tried in an international criminal court, rather than sent to Guantanamo Bay, a defence minister has said.

Tobias Ellwood told two newspapers it was important that “terrorists from any origin are transparently and fairly held account for their actions”.

I feel that Tobias Ellwood has got this absolutely right.

I suspect that Donald Trump, will not go along with the plan!

Will Sir David Teach Trump A Lesson?

The Times has an article today, which is entitled Attenborough Brings About A Sea Change.

One statement stands out.

The political impact of Blue Planet II is undeniable..

The article also says.

  • Dozens of MPs have signed a motion congratulating Sir David for highlighting the issue of plastic pollution in the oceans.
  • Michael Gove says he is haunted by the footage and pledged action.
  • The UN has announced plans for a task-force.

But surely, the most important thing the article says is that Blue Planet II will premiere in the US on January 10 on five networks.

Will Trump watch?

Probably not! It’s all fake news to him anyway!

But a large proportion of the around three hundred million , who live in the USA, will find it compulsive viewing!

Out of curiosity, I wondered if Sir David had any views on Donald Trump. Google found this article in The Independent, which is entitled Sir David Attenborough on Donald Trump: ‘We could shoot him. It’s not a bad idea’.

This is said.

Until now, Sir David Attenborough was one of the few individuals in the public eye not to have broached the ever-present, all-pervasive topic of Donald Trump. However, the naturalist and beloved broadcaster has now given his assessment of the situation and suggested a way to counter the Republican’s ascent to power which, believe it or not, involves a gun.

In an interview with the Radio Times, the nonagenarian was probed about how we solve a problem like Mr Trump and quipped: “We could shoot him”.

Obviously, he was only joking. But Trump does live in the Land of Guns!

Do You Believe Guns Kill People Now, Trumkopf?

No One Is Born Hating Another Person Because Of The Colour Of His Skin Or His Background Or His Religion

The quote is from Nelson Mandela and according to this report on the BBC, after being tweeted by Barack Obama, it has become the most liked tweet.

This is said.

It may be President Trump’s communication tool of choice – but it’s a tweet by former President Barack Obama that has become the most liked in Twitter’s history.

When someone writes a book on the most important tweets of this decade, I do wonder how many of Trump’s tweets will have been much liked, by those who don’t have a dead-end agenda!

As to myself, I was certainly brought up by my parents in the spirit of the title of this post, but with perhaps two exceptions.

  • My father wasn’t keen on Pope Pius XII, as he believed he’d not done enough to help the Jews and others during World War II.
  • My mother was from a Huguenot family and wasn’t that keen on Roman Catholics.

I don’t think either would have been pleased if I’d married a practising Catholic. But as a confirmed atheist and humanist for as long as I can remember, I don’t think there was ever much chance of my marrying anybody with a serious religious conviction.

Is Trump’s Cabinet More White And Male Than Any First Cabinet Since Reagan?

The title of this post is the same as the title on this article on the Politifact web site.

It surely says something about Trump’s mealy-mouthed response to the events of this weekend in Charlottesville.
