Although in Britain most of us are shocked anyone could vote for a bumbling buffoon with a hair style like that. One thing you cannot take away from Trump, he fought the press, the celebrities, the opposition as well as his own party without any political skills or perhaps skills appropriate in any form for the job in hand, but did it all the same.......

I love democracy, it throws up surprises as it should, as if we always assume to follow the normal political system and standards, nothing really changes. Not that I am saying he will be any different as his advisers of course will tell him what to do (his kids)

I was pleasantly amused this morning.....

I laughed my arse off in disbelief (as, I am sure, did the leaders of China and Russia). The world became a much less safe place to live last night.

On a lighter note, I do find it hilarious that Nigel Farage can now claim to have influenced two historical political events in a) Britain quitting the EU and b) Trump being elected as President of the United States of America. The next four years should be interesting as Britain learns how to stand on its own two feet again and as American credibility as a superpower dwindles (as it surely must with a clown at the helm).

This is certainly not the first time a power base has helped to ease someone with no political know-how into the white house thinking (perhaps wrongly in this case) that they will be able to guide(manipulate) the incumbent to follow there wishes . Rockefeller,J.P.Morgan and Carnegie bought Garfield into the White house for their own use and elbowed their worst enemy(Teddy Roosevelt) into the dead end vice-president position ... only it backfired on them when Garfield was assassinated and Teddy became president soon leading to their loss of grip on US decision making (prior to that their combined wealth almost equalled the US gold reserves and little was done without consulting them first)

This time it was the Senate and the house that were keen to get "their man" into power to reverse the stalemate that has been strangling the US while Obama was in power, thing is, have they underestimated Trump ?,could be ,and ,of course, we all know Trump will always face the possibility of Garfield's fate,this is after all the country where you can buy an AK47 (for private use) '!'

Not sure this qualifies as anything more than a facsimile of 'democracy', TF. It seems Clinton won more votes than Trumpy, but the wishes of the majority were overturned by the Electoral College system. Like the UK system of first-past-the-post, the individual voter's choice is over-ridden by a political system that makes a mockery of the word 'democracy'. And about which the individual can do bugger all, without going to the insane lengths of buying a military-grade sniper rifle from the local Walmart and 'popping a cap in somebody's m*th*rf*ck*ng ass' (did I get that right, JP?). Thankfully, that option is not yet available in the UK. :D

BIG NEWS: I have been hired by the Trump transition team to solicit and fill the position of: Trump Nanny. As you are no doubt aware, Trump's handlers took away his Twitter account in the waning days of the election. The purpose, of course, was to prevent him from sharing his uncensored thoughts with all his minion followers and entertaining 75% and alarming the remaining 25%. It worked. He was restrained from shooting himself in the mouth…I mean foot, and he got elected.

With that in mind as the gold standard of candidate management, I have been asked to recruit and select the individual who will be fulfilling a similar function in the Trump Administration. The Trumpsters (his family and other close associates) have made the decision that a Brit should be the official "what he really meant to say" spokesperson. That decision is based on the empirical fact that Americans find the British more intelligent than themselves, even when repeating the very same verbiage as the token American. Should I select you as the Trump Nanny, you will be whisked away to the Trump Tower in Manhattan where you will be manacled by an eight foot gold chain to President Donald's wrist. No formal training is necessary as it is universally known that any person of British lineage is smarter than The Donald and can speak in whole sentences. You must sign a confidential agreement; what happens in Trumpland stays in Trumpland. Pay and benefits to be determined but I can promise there will be free range groping.

Please submit all applications to: http:Ican'tbelieveI'msellingoutlikethis.com. All applications that include a picture of you standing next to the Queen will get special consideration.

Thank you for your interest.

PS [*'popping a cap in somebody's m*th*rf*ck*ng ass' (did I get that right, JP?).] Absolutely correct, youngeap. Your application is on the top of the pile.

I guess I do have a certain linguistic gift. I only had to watch Pulp Fiction once, you know. Thank you for the opportunity, Mr JP. The gold chain is tempting (and everyone knows a good groping never did any harm), but I must decline. This would be a role quite beyond even my abilities, considerably enhanced though they may be by an occasional exposure to American culture via classical movies and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
