    "The Chinese public, meanwhile, seems unfazed by Trump’s anti-immigration stance, with its overwhelming focus on Mexico, and the candidate’s vow to bar Muslims from entering the U.S."

    Not a surprise. I was shocked by the racism from many Chinese when I was there. It rivaled the third world, GOP voting states in the US on that score.

    "The Eu is a fascist monster and it's in the grip of the likes of Merkel who are steering Europe towards cultural annihilation. Get out while you can."

    A perfect example of the kind of hysterical nonsense Johnson is saying and partly why the polls are leaning towards stay.

    @CrazyJoe That's only partly true. The likes of Johnson are appealing to the rightist headbangers with nonsense about Hitler and Napoleon and this is commanding the headlines. The most intelligent critic of a bureaucratic and undemocratic Europe was the late Tony Benn - not a Little Englander or a jingoistic clown. There are voices from the left who support an out vote but none have Benn's gravitas and the figure heads of the out vote are bobble-heads like Johnson and Farage. Trump's support for an out vote saw him join the legion of clowns who will ensure a stay vote.

    I'm a reluctant stay voter, by the way.

    "Of course, no, that isn't what you meant, you meant Muslims but for some reason didn't name them. Let me ask; has a Muslim ever tried to convert you to Islam? That has never happened to me, but many Christians have tried. When a mosque was built near my parents' house, it didn't convert me or anyone else that I know of and it didn't erase the half-dozen churches (or the Hindu temple) in the same neighborhood"

    Fair enough but look what happens in countries where Muslims make up a majority. These countries tend to have religion as a cornerstone of the law of the land. My example of Malaysia, a supposed success story of tolerance, is far from what people is secular societies would call tolerant. Even in the UK, where Muslims are a minority, we've seen the creation of Sharia courts which should be regarded as an utter disgrace in a 21st century European democracy. As you can imagine, these courts are not progressive. It has to be said that many Muslims opposed the creation of these courts but there was certainly enough support to see many of them created.

    I'm pretty sure that an increase of the Muslim population will lead to further calls for ideas which should alarm people who believe in secular ideas.

    "I have been to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. There were Buddhists and muslims living side-by-side peacefully. I think there were a few Christians too."

    Malaysia is often held up as a success story in terms of religious tolerance but this is only in comparison with other majority Muslim countries. There is religious oppression along with laws which people from secular countries would find revolting. Those outside Sunni Islam are at best tolerated. This isn't a good example of people living side-by-side freely.

    "Gladly, As soon as you post a link of Native Americans in masses on the reservations disapproving of Trump's wall and of them worrying about being displaced."

    What in the name of 'bias' ROFLs are you Benghaziing about now? I never mentioned displacing people once.

    I take it these links don't exist. I thought so.

    "Kobe, PM or not, no problem as long as they don't cause problems. But if the population of Christians (or any religions) increases, I'm sure it wouldn't be easy."

    It's worth remembering that Buddhism and Shimtoism were mobilized to help create the foul ideology which resulted in Japan's devastation in WW2.

    Don't take this stuff seriously. Keep an eye on all religions. They can all be toxic.

    "Islam people live in Islam countries, Christians live in Christian coutries, Buddhists live in Buddhist countries. That is the key to peace. Stupid thing to mix them in the same country."

    That depends. As you know, there are over a million Japanese Christians living in Japan.

    Not taking religions too seriously is a better idea.

    "Many of these people either belong in zoos or shrieking and shouting nutcase churches. These 'debates' included knob gags, puerile nicknames and jibes about hand size and sweating. They were a disgrace."

    "It was a spectacle for sure. By the way, ever see the videos from Hillary rallies on TV where people are falling asleep? Maybe a debate with Trump will help keep her fan base awake."

    It was a spectacle. It showed the world just how childish and idiotic the GOP is. It used to be cross-eyed lunatics denying evolution but then it sunk to the level of talking about Trump's knob. I've seen more maturity and intelligence at a fart-lighting competition.

    I haven't seen the footage of people falling asleep at a Hillary rally. Could you post a link? While you are at it, could you finally post a link to the non-partisan historians who view the last president as a roaring success? I honestly can't find them.

    "Everyone's after income redistribution."

    Including Trump. He's talking about hitting the high earners harder for tax. When a Democrat says this the rightists start reaching for the shotgun above the fireplace and yelling about Bolsheviks and Peter and Paul.

    "Afraid? He completely demolished 17 of the strongest GOP politicians"

    Not a difficult job. Many of these people either belong in zoos or shrieking and shouting nutcase churches. These 'debates' included knob gags, puerile nicknames and jibes about hand size and sweating. They were a disgrace.

    Sanders doesn't do this. He actually debates. I know you prefer Trump's raucous idiocy but it isn't what adults call a debate.,

    "As for the last part. His fan base and loyal followers will miss him, Yes, I think so, but there are many more that will not"

    People around the world will miss him. They are not 'fans' or 'loyal followers'. They just see an intelligent, rational and decent man not creating havoc.

    "@jimizo, I think many ppl in the us (and elsewhere in the new world) don't make the distinction between 'communists and socialists. For many if you dont want the rich to get richer and the poor poorer you're a communist."

    Very true. I just wonder why Trump gets a pass. After all, he did say he was going to increase taxes on the top earners. It's probably just his usual off-the-cuff, half-cooked drivel but the rightists here did go a bit quiet about this.

    "This should be great, need to get my popcorn, smart and great strategic move on Trump. The individual empowerment self-reliant candidate going up against the socialist, suppressed massive entitlement loon"

    Bass, your conversion to Trump is truly damascene. Could you take us through the reasons why you initially thought Trump supporters were lunatics ( this is key because many still do ) and now I can imagine you colouring your hair orange.

    Your story would be very illuminating in helping us understand the Trump phenomenon.

    "A communist dinosaur"

    Democratic socialist. Why can't people get this right? Trump called him a communist and his chimps started shrieking but I expect better on JT.

    This dinosaur does seem to be popular with the younger generation getting screwed by other dinosaurs.

    "I wouldn't count on that. Last I checked, the "Leave" camapign was six points ahead of the "Stay" campaign."

    I've been keeping an eye on various polls. The vast majority of them show nothing like that. The stay campaign has a clear advantage on average.

    If you are so convinced of a Brexit, get yourself down the bookies. They'll give you decent odds.

    The oxygen of publicity. Johnson's 'endearing', 'eccentric' and 'non-PC' pronouncements are not to be taken seriously.

    A spoiled, attention-seeking, irritating twat.

    Many developing countries around the world are worried that the third world states of the US could put Trump in power.

    Interesting.

    "I very much doubt Mourinho can solve MU's problems."

    Top 4 will suffice next season. Appointing Jose shows that Man U are prepared to accept his style of football to get a CL place.
