Trump Downgraded

by duncanr

following the UK decision to leave the EU, the government is desperate to secure a beneficial trade agreement with the USA to compensate for the loss of that which we currently have with the Eu

when the USA elected a petulant child as their president, therefore, Theresa May, was quick to curry favour with the prat president – appealing to his vanity with the offer of a state visit to the UK

such is the contempt with which the emotionally immature, intellectually challenged, pillock is held in the UK, however, that the news of the state visit was not universally welcomed . . .

It’s Election Day in UK

by duncanr

voters in the UK (well those that can be arsed) will be deciding today which two-faced, lying buggers to support in the snap general election called by the conservative leader Theresa May

my polling station is a mere 100 yards from my house so I nipped down just after 7am this morning to cast my vote

it will likely be the early hours of tomorrow before we have an inkling of which party is on track to be the next government – till then, I will probably be experiencing many of the states depicted here –

Theresa May: Contrasting Messages

by duncanr

in just over a week, voters in the UK go to the polling booths to elect a new government

Anyone Forget?

Silent Solution

by duncanr

999-call999 is the UK equivalent of 911 in the US

want an ambulance, the fire brigade, or the police, then dial 999 and the operator will connect you with the appropriate emergency service

but what if you need the police but it is not safe for you to speak because to do so would put you in danger?
