    Well, that should increase the number of suicides.

    presto345 - the 2 girls in question were aware of the rules. They changed on got on with their lives. Unfortunately SJWs on Twitter have no lives and decided to be offended. Again.

    They were 10 years old... just saying.

    The British NHS was started in 1948 and should be great by now instead its collapsing and people are dying because of that. Like waiting hours for an ambulance to arrive and once at the hospital spending hours and even days in corridors because there are no beds. There are also immigrants or none British/EU patients getting free medical care, like child delivery, without paying a single penny into the care system.

    It's not totally collapsing across the UK - here in Scotland for example there are challenges yes, but it's not collapsing. There needs to be an increase in National Insurance tax to help the underfunding in the NHS. As an employee of the NHS it's not my place to comment on immigrants and EU patients, except to say that EU members have the EHIC card (as do UK citizens) allowing them to have free or reduced medical bills if treatment is required. Likewise if I fell ill in Germany I would be given the treatment free or at a much reduced rate. EU citizens could the same about UK citizens... although we'll lose that benefit come Brexit.

    My point still stands though, tax Americans so they can get a fair healthcare system for everyone.

    For god's sake just create a tax-funded healthcare system free to all who need it and be done with it. What's so hard about that? Works elsewhere.

    Nigel Farage, former leader of the right-wing UK Independence Party, blamed the attack on “multiculturalism.”

    Okay you grinning loon, this killer was not born Khalid Masood but Adrian Elms, born in Kent and probably converted to Islam later in life. So he's not an immigrant Nigel, he was a natural born Briton. You can't blame this on immigration no matter how hard you try.

    As for IS, they'd claim the 'credit' for the opening of an envelope if it got them publicity in the West.

    But many Nissan employees say they don’t want a union, and the company says it’s the UAW that’s unfairly pressuring the company.

    So the UAW want to impose a union on workers who don't want one? That's fair - not!

    London survived relentless bombing in WW2, survived the V weapons, survived the IRA terror attacks and will continue to go on as before after this terror attack. British people are pretty resilient.

    Like the MP who attempted to save the fatally wounded policeman yesterday, everyday heroes.

    I still remember the Glasgow Aiport attack... partly foiled by baggage handler John Smeaton ('Smeato' as he became known) who took umbridge at a policeman being attacked by one of the would-be bombers and became the hero of the day.

    Days like this I'm upset for those who have died or were injured yesterday... but I'm also proud of the way the lid was quickly put on it without mass hysteria.

    I'm finding it hard to get my head around this: a former opera singer becomes an elderly porn star... At what point would someone think: "hmm... think I'll make porn videos." Most odd.

    So she doesn't have a government job but she has a White House office paid for by American tax payers, comms devices paid for by tax payers and she will have access to classified information... and no-one on the Republican side sees anything wrong with this? If I was an American I'd be demanding someone look into this. How can that be right? if she doesn't have a government post then keep her away from anything even remotely sensitive.

    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip a meeting with NATO foreign ministers next month in order to stay home for a visit by China’s president and will go to Russia later in April, U.S. officials said on Monday, disclosing an itinerary that allies may see as giving Moscow priority over them.

    No links to the Russians, none at all. Pff... NATO? Pah! You know I don't think the current White House administration has a functioning brain between them.

    No different than the flights to commemorate the Battle of Britain in 2015 I suppose. I doubt there would be any appetite to commemorate the Dresden bombings... we have a conscience. :p

    S Korea's Lotte family owners go on trial for graft

    Really? Using a term like 'graft'? It's just as well the crimes were outlined in the body of the text. Come on JT, we're not all Americans and we don't all know US slang.

    Amazing how a company known for confectionery can be linked to a missile defence system.

    The top two lawmakers on the House intelligence committee said Sunday that documents the Justice Department and FBI delivered late last week offered no evidence that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower, but the panel’s ranking Democrat says the material offers circumstantial evidence that American citizens colluded with Russians in Moscow’s efforts to interfere in the presidential election.

    Whoops! lol

    When he comes to the UK I hope he's forced to apologise to our country for claiming our GCHQ wiretapped him. Idiot. He's either using these trumped up (giggle) claims as a distraction, or he's paranoid, in which case he should be removed ASAP, as the last thing the world needs is a person like that with the authority to launch America's nuclear arsenal.

    America in Germany is still an occupation force. There are other countries with forces based in Germany... do we hear them bleating about being paid more for the defence of Germany? No, this is just Trump trying to screw NATO nations out of cash to fund his bonkers projects. He couldn't get it out of Japan, so he's turning his attention to Germany. Well I don't think Merkl will be too bothered about that... I admire anyone who can stand next to Trump on a stage and give him a WTF look.
