Turnaround

After the Presidential election in November you may recall his w the news narrative focussed on the fact that Nigel Farage had visited Donald Trump and become the first U.K. politician to meet up with him following his election. This was being portrays a huge snub to the U.K. and our Prime Minister. Now President-elect Trump has become President Trump we hear Theresa May is going over this coming week to meet with President Trump and in all likelihood become the first World leader to meet with him in the White House.Quite a turnaround.

  1. I am sorry but I find it demeaning that our Prime Minister has to rush over the Atlantic to kneel before a lying, ignorant, bully and ask for favours from him in terms of a trade deal.
    To what depths have we sunk as a nation, hoping against hope that we can benefit from a special relationship when Trump has shown he is not concerned about other countries, determined to put America First. When the UK has just determined to free ourselves from the domination of our neighbours we now are left to apparently beg for assistance from a person like Trump.
    I would not trust him one inch – would you ?
    It is beyond belief that anyone can regard being the first to meet him is an honour – it is merely a sign of how low we have sunk. The nauseating picture of a grinning thumbs-up Michael Gove stood with Trump will go with him to his grave. Looking at it must give him nightmares of regret – but of course we know from his behaviour over the summer that he has absolutely no shame.
    Sorry again – but you can see how I, and I am sure many others, feel.

    • I can Jim and it is regrettable. However I am prepared to say sometime in the future that I was wrong, if you will.

    • I agree, Jim. How low we have sunk. Oh, oh, but let’s not forget that we do have back our sovereignty and that will cheer us all up while we watch the spectacle of our PM brown-nosing an arrogant US thug. And all this while she and Jeremy Hunt run our NHS (the one thing we really could be proud of) into the ground.

  2. Can i suggest that a trade deal brokered with Trump will be in the interests of the USA and not the UK. This is what he said in his inauguration speech, explaining how he would put America First –

    ‘Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength’.

    It is clear he wants to stop exports into the USA. He explained he wants the USA to follow two simple rules: ‘Buy American and hire American’.

    Now I know that he lies and blusters but I suspect that will just make a decent trade deal harder to achieve. He hopes to manage his country like he managed his businesses – and that only to the advantage of himself. If we think he really cares about the success of any one else, like the UK, we are heading for disappointment.

  3. One of the hardest things in business is to smile at someone you cannot stand the sight off. BUT if you want the persons money – you do it. Trump above all else is a businessman – smile and walk away with the ‘sale’. Principles don’t change but you need the cash to use them. Use Farage. (not that for one minute she will)
