Jeez! That was a proper mauling.

I'd love to see that level of accountability in this country.

I sure hope all this shit Putin is stirring up will come out into the open. There are going to be a whole lot of countries majorly pissed off.

Obviously not sufficiently. Otherwise we wouldn't have to still talk about him and his fallout called Brexit.

It seems so short-sighted of Putin and the Russian leadership to practice this sort of subversion after they've spent the last twenty years trying to get back to the world's center-stage. Haven't they noticed what's happened to America when it's gone meddling?

It's not as if this strategy wouldn't work. They have virtually all European rightwingers in their pocket, complete with frequent pilgrimages to Russia. The only exception is Geerd Wilders, which doesn't make him a more reputable figure.

Putin's goal is to weaken the European Union and the ties between Europe and the USA. With the current US government he already succeeded on that front.

RE: UKIP's Nigel Farage is FBI "person of interest"
The plot thickens. Last week the UK's chief statistician came out publicly criticising Boris Johnson for misusing government statistics to support the Brexit campaign in last years EU referendum. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/201...exit-claim

Johnson decided, for purely political reasons, to support the leave campaign, having previously supported UK membership in the EU. It was a political move because he was touted as the next UK PM but after David Cameron resigned, there were some skeletons which emerged from BoJo's closet and he lost support in his party so he decided not to put his name forward.

So, we have a chum of Putin, Farage, being paid by RT, spreading venom in the UK, fake news being spread by the Brexiteers and now we have a UK embroiled in one of the most divisive political debates in it's history, all stemming from mainly English bigotry against "bloody foreigners" taking away their jobs and living off the state.

Sound familiar?

It's also unravelling in the same way Trumpism is in the US. Last week PM Teresa May gave a speech in Florence, Italy, in which she announced that the UK would not be leaving the EU for at least another three and a half years, extending the proposed departure by two years, and demanding a "transitional" agreement with the UK. The talk now is of abandoning Brexit: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfre...-say-in-eu
The difference between the UK and the USA is that money-laundering and white-collar crime is part of the national fabric of the UK. The Brits revel in their Robin Hood history, their pillaging of foreign countries, the exploitation of the rest of the planet by any means. Parts of the British Isles, such as the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, are not legally within the UK and are tax havens, as is Gibraltar. English soap operas, like "Eastenders" idolise the villainy of east end London thugs and anyone with a bit of a problem with the law in the UK ends up in the Spanish Costa del Sol, nicknamed the Costa del Crime. The UK is awash with Russian and Chinese money, invested in property in London by kleptocrats and their friends which has driven the cost homes in the capital out of the reach of ordinary folk. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/busine...09052.html

The UK's ecomomic growth over the past few years is largely due to inward investment by these criminals and the Conservative government doesn't have the nerve to do anything about it because, if they were honest, they would have to admit that whatever economic growth there is in the country is largely due to illegal activities, and not to a result of growth of industry. The Conservative government is on a tight-rope because it's now impossible for a family to buy a starter home in many parts of the UK, but they don't want to see this "investment" by foreigners dry up or house prices to drop because this will result in what appears to be a recession: https://www.theguardian.com/money/blog/2...h-property

If one were to accept that the news reflects what is actually going on, then one would have to assume that Russia has deeply infiltrated the USA, but that there is nothing going on in the UK at all, because there is nothing in the newspapers about Russian having any presence or influence in the UK. But, then there's Nigel Farage...friend of Putin, supporting Brexit and fake news....hmmmm

RE: UKIP's Nigel Farage is FBI "person of interest"
And, to add to this mess, Theresa May went to Canada to see if she could gain support for a Canada-UK trade deal. Of course, being an idiot, she raised the "historical" connection between Canada and Britain: “Canada and the United Kingdom have a long shared history,” said May. “British and Canadian soldiers, sailors and airmen and women have fought and died alongside each other in the pursuit of freedom, including at the Battle of Britain, where 23 brave Canadian servicemen lost their lives."

Yes, Theresa, Canadians fought a war against the parents and grandparents of German, Italian, Hungarian and Japanese Canadians and the British defeated the ancestors of Justin Trudeau at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. And Canada's last Governor General, the acting head of state is a descendant of African slaves transported to the Caribbean by the British.

So, why would Canada, a "cultural mosaic", rush to support a deal with the UK and thumb its nose at other European countries, all on the basis of a race-based policy decision by the UK government aimed at kicking foreigners out of the country?

Johnson is probably the most dangerous clown of Britain and a splendid specimen for a politician being able to take the people for a ride. He never wanted Brexit to succeed, just to collect some brownie points by suddenly changing his tune. After the vote he got his pants full to the rim and as a foreign minister he seems to be held in the same high regards as Trump by the European community.

Good luck to May, extending the Brexit by the way. There are 27 other nations having their say in the matter.

Yes, what the newspapers are saying these days is that the negotiations over Brexit are between members of the Conservative party, not between the UK and Europe. They haven't even got a starting position.

I heard one Brexit politician saying that this set of negotiations is "unique" because it starts from the position that the UK already has free trade. Most negotiations over free trade start with...hmmm...tariffs. It seems these people have taken leave of their senses. They don't listen to what they are saying. All of the aspects of the EU treaty are integral to a free trade zone.

UKIP have the same ethical issues as Trump and his crew. One of them was sent to jail a while ago for fraud, swindling the EU Parliament out of £500,000 in false expenses including lawyers fees: https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/news/jailed...0GAZ141016

The lawyer was struck off as well.

Here's one of he best take downs of a politician I've ever seen by a journalist. It's priceless.
