    Tweeting does have the benefit of short and direct communication with the public. Compare it to Blair's rehearsed and insincere spindoctor-written scripts, polished and packaged by an on-message media. I prefer Trump tweets.

    Well in the 80s we had the famous quote "We begin bombing in five minutes" :)

    Me too. We'll never really get to the bottom of Blair's personality, at least Trump lays himself bare.

  • Absolutely. The media is a farce. 

    That said, the bullingdon society is the ultimate insult to working people. That people from that sort of background can come to run a country is a joke. 

    Aren't they working people though? Boris and Osborne still have jobs and DC earns a pretty penny through lectures right now... 

    I don't like the way it's portrayed as 'toffs suck, the working classes are great'. I work in a working class environment (a chain pub). I've been there since August and put up with reams of small minded bullshit, everything from homophobia to racism to flat-out moronic acts of vandalism and violence. Having folk like that in charge of the country would be an even worse joke.

    Bitterly dissapointed. When I saw "#watersportsgate" I  thought it was how the FBI would be ensuring of trumps early demise. 
    The two activities are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

    It's all about how you prefer your lies delivered. Polished or natural.

    @Heartfeltdawn - You know as well as I do that the Fretboard standard mantra is, sadly, that 'people with money and power are foolish or evil, and people without money or power are clever and good'.

    Say what you want about Trump, about Blair or even about Streep.

    But when people start slating Seagal, I open a can of whoop-ass.*

    I must have missed that class :) But it is a very curious thing how there is a lot of working class image polishing that goes on. The difference is they won't end up in political office. That doesn't make their beliefs any less reprehensible.

    Indeed, that was poorly worded. 

    But a semi-secret, invite only society based on wealth that appears to lead people into positions of higher management stinks, to me, of an unfair advantage. Particularly when said society (allegedly) has such a poor reputation. 

    However, having said that, I don't know of anyone who especially wants to be a politician - so perhaps it's an even less valid post than it already wasn't ( ).

    Thirty years ago scandal or fraud used to end political careers, nowadays we're so desensitised to it we're not even surprised enough to give a shit how they behave, they pretty well have a free rein. 

    That's not true, at least in regard to that issue.

    The fact is, it wasn't a scandal because a.) no-one was even sure it had happened and b.) even if it did happen, while foolish, it's nothing more than a bit silly and typical of the kind of stupidity that rugby clubs, students, and military units get up to all round the country.Not really a scandal, just embarrassing.

    The reverse is true in my opinion, and in fact it's often a subject of debate on the news programmes; should decent (i.e. well meaning and otherwise honest) politicians have their careers ended because of some minor foolishness, bedroom or alcohol-related personal stuff, which has no bearing on their jobs, whereas others, who are squeaky-clean but useless, serve on (Corbyn?)

    The press shout about public interest, but what they end up doing is depriving us of talented (but maybe quirky) individuals, or people with a past, or those who don't wish their private lives to be laid out in public (Labour leadership contender?), and we're left with mediocrity. Whichever side of the political divide you're on, that benefits no-one.

    The French have the right idea: they don't give a monkeys, as long as the guy/girl is good at their job.

    Proper political scandals are rare, like cash for questions etc, and almost immediately give rise to resignations and sackings, quite rightly.

    I wonder what Kennedy got up to in his time? I mean nobody has a go at his restless habits because he's a saint, but if you want ammo against Trump then surely affairs are just idle banter.

    There's some milage in the fact that Seagal is the actor in question given his friendly relationship with Putin.

    George W Bush couldn't complete a sentence and still doesn't know what 3rd person is.

    Yup. As obnoxious as Trump is, he cannot be as stoopid as Dubya.

    Who cares what he's into?  A lot of these journalists are probably jealous that Trump associates amongst the elite as is a member of expensive sports clubs I.e water polo, etc.  If I had his money I probably would get into the more elite sports.
