Re: I’m being surveyed by the government about Brexit

I will shoehorn this in here.

May is in Africa looking at strengthening trade and British investment. What's the betting we will be investing in nurse and carer training and making sure the work visa application systems are running smoothly. It's what I would do.

Re: The passing of John McCain

CNN and others are reporting that McCain has arranged his funeral, Bush jr and Obama have been asked to speak and he has banned Trump from the funeral any service of remembrance.

Re: Your Ride Today

Things didn't work out this morning, apparently the clues were solved very quickly and the radio had been and gone by 9.30. I didn't ride either because the weather arrived.

One can listen on line. I won't, cause I'll be in Paris 😏
I would rather be in Paris than Leicester tomorrow. Work of pleasure?

Re: Your Ride Today

About 9.45. I never listen to Radio Leicester, but apparently the Sunday morning show does a treasure hunt where they give clues to the location of a prize hidden somewhere in tge city. Tomorrow it will be in the beer garden of the pub, and the show host will be there. We assemble at 9.45 for a 10.0...

Re: Your Ride Today

At the start of my ride tomorrow I may be on Radio Leicester, they are doing the morning show from the pub and The Black Horse Riders are on the schedule to be talked to. The only thing is, given the weather forecast the ride might not happen.

Such is his lack of shame and feeling of absolute entitlement, he will not acknowledge the trouble he is in imho.

Re: Trying to keep up with Trump.

The Democrats are not talking about impeachment because they know Trump will jump on it to get his base mobilised. With regard to the Republicans, they want to see how bad the situation is so they can assess how their own careers may be affected come the next full election.

Re: Trying to keep up with Trump.

I see now that the question is not if it will end, but how it will end. Those with the political ability to remove him are waiting for the mid terms in November. Mueller still has a lot of evidence to get through, including of course Cohen who only decided to talk voluntarily this week, and we can't...

Trying to keep up with Trump.

With Cohen and Manafort taking up news media time this week, I find it jaw dropping to read all the other fsilures, trips and illegal behavior that has come to light over the last few days. Here is a summary piece in the Guardian https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/aug/25/trumps-terrible-week-s...
