    Oh, and it honestly doesn't matter what the UK thinks on this... as they're already an Islamic Caliphate.

    That is utter shite, you have absolutely no knowledge of the UK if you think that is true.  You really need to stop drinking the Trump Kool-Aid it has rotted your brain

    If this does lead to war with Iran, it's going to backfire on Trump so hard his head will spin.  People will hold him directly responsible for causing war.

    That's tomorrows issue, today he has change the narrative

    Trump doesn't give a shit and neither do his cronies.  It's not their sons and daughters who will have to fight this war for the next twenty years.  I guess he's hoping that getting in a war will boost his popularity and secure reelection.  It sure would have been nice to be done with the last one first.  Well, fighting "wars" is an entirely a for profit endeavor at this point.  Not to profit the country, but the companies and boards of the companies who build all the fancy crap they use to kill people.  We need to justify the nearly one trillion dollar military budget.

    Its also a great way to distract from his impeachment

    With everything done on the WRX, it's actually closer to $50k, as you're factoring sticker cost alone, and not the warranty.

    Given the average new car cost in the UK is around £33500 which is around $44000 even at $50000 that is not that expensive.  The average new car price in the US is $36700

    To put things in perspective the average wage in the UK is £29500 ($39600) and in the US it is $47000.  

    So your car is about 1 years wage, where as the average new car in the UK is now than 1 years wage.  So I will say it again not that expensive

    Let me show you a picture of my modded car, a stage 2, 2018 WRX:

    You don't own one of those without having the financial horsepower to afford the car and the mods.  And unlike your claims otherwise, it's one of the main reasons why I suspect I probably out-earn you.  Then again, I have no doubt you're going to claim this is all made up, because denying reality seems to be your "superpower".

    You can get a 2018 WRX STI for under £26000 (approx $34000), not really an expensive car even modded  with stage 2 costing around $3000.  Not that big a deal

    If the Democrats actually had something on Trump that would get him impeached AND convicted, they would have already presented charges and impeached him.

    However.... nothing has happened in two weeks.... because the Democrats don't have jack and are doing an impeachment purely for political reasons.  I fully expect the House Democrats to impeach Trump and force the vote through.... and then the real circus begins because the Republicans have an axe to grind, and this is only going to get worse for the Democrats because they have painted themselves in a corner and must go forward with impeachment despite the cost it will have in 2020.

    What was that you were saying

    You can tell when one person is being dishonest just by watching the interview? At the same time can't see how much Trump constantly lies. Trump can't go a day without lying 2 dozen times or more. He lies so much and so often, he gets pissy when WH staff take notes. He lies so often, he has now secluded himself in the WH residence to do a good part of his daily Presidential duties. He does what ever he can to avoid being confronted about his lies, even to himself. All through the last 3 plus years and you can't see that once?

    Trump epitomizes the word LIAR, and you can insist another is lying without proof?

    Well, at least you'll make a mediocre, used car salesman one day when you grow up.

    Trump doesn't lie, he uses alternative facts

    One other very relevant thought to all of this....  How is foreign policy not a bunch of quid pro quos?

    Not sure asking another country to investigate your political rival would fall under foreign policy and if that is you r foreign policy then there is something very wrong

    All I'm going to say is that it's between $100k and $200k.  You can't do that if you're dumb.

    Yes you can, there was a guy on TV in the UK last night arguing that him earning over £80k did not mean he was in the top 5% of earners in the UK, he argued he wasn't in the top 50%.

    No. He's an old white man who claims to be rich, yet somehow can't afford to pay his bills.

    I suspect he can afford to pay, but just doesnt.  Small contractors cant afford to sue him, his lawyers will just tie the case up for so long they would go bust.  

    I dont believe he is as rich as he claims, but he has made a lot of money from being the President, all the trips to his hotels must add up to a lot on money

    The FPTP system can create very strange results this time, especially with the Brexit Party as an uncertain factor; If they go all in with "we CAN deliver" they eat away votes from tories mostly

    When I look up a recent poll, these are the percentages:

    Conservative: 36%
    Labour: 23%
    LibDem: 18%
    Brexit Party: 12%
    Green: 6%
    Other: 6%

    If brexit party grows with 10/15% it can be anything as a result

    Not sure how good the polls will be this time.  The Lid Dems, Greens and Plaid Cymru will most likely not stand against each other where one of them has a good change of winning.  They did this at the last by election and it worked.  Well Labour wont do this, it would make sense for supports of anti brexit parties to vote tactically in marginal seats to make sure the Tories dont get a majority.  Also in some of the marginal seats the Brexit party could cost the Tories the seat by splitting the Brexit vote, will be interesting to see if the stand in Tory marginal areas

  12. So we are going to have an election and most likely at the end of another hung parliament and still no change on Brexit.  Then it will be a Christmas recess so nothing will happen before January.

    The EU does not want a Brexit. Britain doesn't want a Brexit (unless you count the gullible idiots who fell for Boris' lies).

    Not just Boris' lies.  Farage had more than his fair share
