To go from this


Our major cities have been in existence for a greater amount of time than your country has had a flag, and we will elect to run them precisely who we see fit, to run them in a manner in accordance with our preferences, not the frankly mindless, reductionist waffle we hear from US Mayors, and for that matter other political figures from the US.

To this


The fellows appointment of more corporate goons, oil company shills, and swamp creatures like Rex Tillerson for example, as well as his frankly inexplicable appointment of Jeff Sessions, who was an absolute BASTARD toward the leadership and activists of the Civil Rights movement, has made it impossible for more than half of the people living in the United States to either take their government seriously, or trust them with even the slightest thing.

Is pretty impressive.
How bout you take your own advice and remember we elect who we want and allow them to run things as they see fit as well.

First, Rex Tillerson is who you want because he knows the bottom line and is not going to sell out to companies ala Solyndra and such like past administrations have. No more clean air subsidies to companies like Tesla who have taken billions in the past few years and do NOTHING for the common citizen.

As far as Sessions, why should people not have to show an ID when voting? I don't care what color you are and neither did he. ID's are easy to get and subsidized for the 'poor' in many states.

As far as the UK not wanting him to visit...ok. Like member bastion says it seems you think we as the US are now an enemy of the UK. Have fun with your Holy War because I can guarantee if there was a large scale terror attack you would not be turning to any other country other than the US. Kind of screwed up, just like Khan, to make statement that not all of your citizens would agree with to posture.

“The alacrity with which Trump has put in place, by presidential decree, a swathe of openly racist, xenophobic, misogynistic and homophobic measures, together with the president’s total disregard for existing US commitments under international law, indicate that the British government’s decision to renew its ‘special relationship’ with the United States at this time can only lead, in the short-term, to further suffering and discrimination. “We can only hope that this self-serving programme will, in the long-term, set in motion a demand for real change that governments and communities across the world will be forced to answer.” The letter ends by calling on No 10 “not only to cancel Trump’s invitation to visit the UK but also, and more fundamentally, to withdraw the support of the British government for the United States more generally until these indefensible policies have been reversed and disavowed. “If you do not, we fear that the United Kingdom will find itself, like Trump, on the wrong side of history, with extremely worrying consequences for us all.”

That is pretty disgusting.
It is cool though.
Just remind yourselves of this prior to calling us to bail you out again in the future.
That and don't be pissed when trump or any other leader tells you that your "indefensible policies have been reversed and disavowed".
Perhaps you can get the french to help you out before they surrender.

This is hilarious. London Mayor is a complete fool.

Can you imagine the headlines if Trump responded to negative comments from Khan and cancelled a UK state dept visit? But I'm sure they think it's great when it's the other way around.

Curious what policy is Trump supporting that does that?
