My wife just returned from a trip to the Outer Hebrides (don't ask). Anyway, when she came back she noted that none of our news has been carrying anything about Trump trying to buy into the UK Healthcare system whilst, in the UK that's just about all that's on their news. If you google "trump trying to buy into uk healthcare" you will get a pile of returns.

I have no idea what that is all about but thought it was kinda interesting.......

I think it's pretty obvious: Trump wants to buy it so he can screw it up. Just like him wanting to buy Greenland because there will be a lot of prime beachfront real estate once all those nasty glaciers are gone.

The Brits should be careful, everything that Trump touches turns to shyte. Hmm

Well for centuries America has suffered from an accent induced inferiority complex WRT the Brits.
If they're dumb enough to buy what Trump is selling, then I guess we should all reassess if the British accent really does indicate superior intelligence, as apparently Americans have been subconciously laboring under that possible misimpression for a very long time.

The Brits giving the NHS the heave-ho because of the Art of the Deal immediately and irrevocably lays such subconscious notions to rest.

I see Boris wants to wait after the next election to release the UK report on Russian election meddling. Could that be because they had a lot of influence in favor of Brexit? The EU getting smaller by one nuclear club member is something Putin wants badly. So how much did they support Boris?

Vlad Putin understands a thing or two about spying and meddling.

He's up against amateurs with Johnson and Trump.

They can't even play checkers to his 3D chess! Maybe we should become part of the Russian Federation: At least Putin is not a moron.
