Sacoolas should do right thing and go back to England to face the music. The Brits aren’t going to ‘make an example of her,’ she would probably only get a probation and a heavy fine, and her diplomatic link, would see her dealt with more favourably. This verdi…

I agree wholeheartedly with you, Sacoolas must play ball with our friend’s in the UK, and stop hiding behind her husband’s diplomatic status. A cowardly act, and the extradition should have been granted.

I agree with both of you regarding Sacoolas. She should go back to England. However, a completely different question is whether the US should extradite her. That would create a dangerous precedent. Remember, diplomatic status is intended to protect diplomats.

MBS is unfortunately pretty much untouchable even after his alleged order to have Khashoggi bumped off. Business is much more important than an assassination or a breach in security these days!

Not even the richest man in the world is safe from this human rights defying regime. And we all let them carry on doing what they like

But hey, Mr President will plant some trees, probably on the White House lawns!

I think that Thunberg is inadvertently, and with Soros’ funding, opening up the rhetoric for mass migration, which the leader of the U.N is suggesting, as climate change would mean that people living in certain Nations that will suffer most from the rise in te…

Foolish…did you even listen to what the President Trump said? He admits that he took a photo with Parnas at that fundraising event, whatever…but he takes photos with MILLIONS of people, who just stand next to him and have a photo. It does not mean he PERSO…

Creepy Rudy is like a Dickensian villain shuffling around in the murky shadows trying to pick a pocket or two.

Excellent analogy, maybe the artful dodger?

Giuliani as personal lawyer to Trump is the common denominator in all of this crooked case. What kind of threat was Yovanovich under before she was kicked out? This additional information is bad news for Trump as he continues to evades justice and will add we…

Trump retweeted a funny meme of Pelosi in Islamic dress, hahahaha, why not, many Democrats would rather apologise to Khameini and overlook Iran’s dreadful human rights violations and terrorist actions than supporting their own Nation, Ilhan Omar being the most…

Exactly! How was that a hate speech? They wear this kind of clothes in Iran. He was just trying to make a point that they were siding with Iran and not their own country. Hate speech!?

Roger Federer has done huge work for charity throughout his illustrious career, and Credit Suisse Bank have altered their stance to comply with the Paris Agreement. Federer has been targeted by Thunberg, which I totally disagree with, it could have been tackle…

All these celebrities are being held accountable to some 16-year old kid who skips school, and has never done anything in her life. How disgusting.

Oh right, so a tin pot bunch of people take part in a little survey, and the Brexit dominated General Election whitewash, involving millions of Brits, was actually a dream? ???

Too bloody late snowflakes. Media idiots like the “Independent” supported those who would not recognize a referendum on Brexit, who tried every trick in the book to deny the majority…the leavers. Well, it didn’t work, the people had their say, now get ove…

This sounds like complete nonsense unless the survey was undertaken in Khan and Corbyn’s London.

I remember seeing Jean Claude Juncker jokingly slapping Viktor Orban on the cheek after whispering to a colleague, “here comes the dictator.” Hungary is the supposed “bad boy” of the European Union members. Orban refused to take on board excessive numbers of m…

I wish Boris Johnson was the president of the US. After all, he was born in New York. I have a lot of respect for that man.

Soleimani’s execution was justified but it is no way “a means to an end”. Despite his crimes, Soleimani was keeping the leash on other radical factions, who will be at the forefront of any reprisal. Dangerous times.

He was a legitimate target. But was this move reasonable? I think not. Its costs outweigh its benefits. Our civilians will become moving targets now.

Mr Timmermans has got to get over it and get a bigger box of kleenex. The U.K were the main contributors to the E.U model and Brussels will be looking to replace that money spread across the other Nations. The Brits voted twice …once in the referendum an…

If someone else gets in power there, they could well vote to rejoin the EU…especially if their economy starts slowing down. Nothing is definite.

After Corbyn’s disastrous General Election, the Labour Party, the only feasible challenger to the Tories, could be out in the cold for the next decade. If and when they are strong enough to make a meaningful political contribution, I would not be at all surpri…

Johnson knows very well that Trump will not yield in this case. Especially since Trump does not care about international obligations. Nevertheless…extradition may well be a step too far, because of international law rules on diplomatic immunity. It is a lost…

Giuliani is dragging Trump down with every statement he makes. It looks like he is getting even braver. I’m wondering what he has on Trump…Must be something very serious.

You are right, and Giuliani has a lot more brain power than D.T and he will definitely make sure his butt is covered whilst retaining some kind of advantage.

Whether he is ‘more Jewish’ than Soros or not, it is debatable which one of these shady characters is the most crooked?
