    Is there any other country in the world where politicians campaign that they will take away your health coverage? And get cheered for it. No doubt in the diminishing Trump strongholds they would yahoo and celebrate late into the night that they had got rid of Obamacare. That is, until they realised that they also had got rid of their own coverage and now had none.

    This is classic Trump. Big talk on the campaign trail with no plan whatsoever as to what he was going to replace it with. This new proposal looks like someone saying, "give me something, anything, as long as it is not Obamacare".

    This is one of those times when he should learn that his credibility is at stake.

    I think it is very generous of you to still consider that Trump has any credibility left to lose.

    “One of the things I did ask is, ‘Why did President Obama sign that agreement with Iran?’"

    Yes, the agreement signed along with Britain, France and Russia amongst others. Foolish really to seek a peaceful solution when it was so much easier to have another war.

    I'm in favour because Japan's time is already way out of synch. It is the same time in East Russia as it is in Japan. Even before talking about daylight saving it needs adjusting by a least an hour. But it won't happen and here are a few reasons why:

    The fear that office workers won't go home if it is still daylight.

    The extra daylight upsets the cows

    The extra daylight has an adverse effect on plants and makes them sprout and blossom too early. It also makes glaciers melt quicker.

    The extra hour of strong daylight fades the curtains and blinds.

    We already have global warming. Do we really need to add extra sunshine and heat to the planet?

    Yes! Yes! Yes! This just what America and the world has been crying out for. Bigger and better gas guzzling polluting cars. By increasing consumption of a diminishing fuel resource America will be great again. Just like the 1950's. How could it go wrong?

    I weep at the lack of leadership coming from the USA.

    The Don will not be pleased. Prepare for a twitter onslaught. So many "so called" judges. Can they all be wrong?

    Come on Paul. You have riches beyond most peoples dreams, you are a Knight of the realm and have lived a very, very special life. You're in your mid-70's. What more do you want? Perhaps time to let go of the need for more. Enjoy your last years without the unneeded stress of legal battles. You were right that 'Money can't by me love' but nor can it buy you peace of mind. Let it go Paul. Down the Long and Winding Road.

    And let's not forget that this was the man who advocated killing the families of alleged "terrorist's".

    See how I cleverly used quotation marks so I can distant myself from this comment?

    The women in my office were not required to wear uniforms, But they generally agreed that if they were supplied with uniforms they would happily wear them as it would save them some Y100,000 a year in clothes. And I was at what would be seen or recognised as a very progressive workplace.

    I'll bet pennies to pounds that trump takes credit for this.

    So if trump is getting his information from the media and the media is full of fake news..............?

    Might explain some of his decision making.

    It didn't happen. Fake News. The people of Rhode Island were actually singing his praises and calling him the new Messiah. But the MSM would never show that.

    This "fake news" stuff is spreading quickly. Obviously the images of the women in gloves rubbing something on his face was fake - probably a CNN job. And the traces of a nerve agent were actually traces of hand cleanser that random strangers regularly rub into the face of travellers at Malaysian airports. It's a health thing that all Malaysians take part in. Keeps the country clean and safe.

    Glad that's been cleaned up. Pun and all.

    Bass4Funk:

    Now I'm not defending Sessions, but I'm not condemning the man either, I just want Dems to be fair about this because, once again, they smell blood and are circling the boat and will do anything to get a morsel.

    And of course, should a Democrat find themselves in this position you would want everyone to be fair about it. Right.

    While I do see many faults with the American system of government I do admire the way that the operation of checks and balance digs in deep when something is amiss. Without this system Sessions would have just brushed this aside in a Putinesque manner. Claims of fake news etc. do not work when there is a robust system in place that aims to uncover the truth (even though at times it is for political reasons).

    I know a lot of people don't like clicking on posted links - but try this one - it is the ultimate in dealing with cold callers.

    Cut and paste it if need be. You will laugh.

    Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in an interview broadcast on Sunday......

    Seriously, how can you trust someone who:

    A. Works for Trump and,

    B. has a name like someone from Lord of the Rings?
