Whatever. You should all know better than to nit pick and to judge a country, when its not even exploiting itself to the same barriers that you put up in your public institution that you dare call a democracy.

Let the facts be distorted or speak for itself.

Boris was in Washington today, what's the story?

Mr Johnson's own verdict on his debut at the European high table? "Very good, long, productive day."

Mr Johnson and Mr Kerry both emphasised that the "special relationship" between their countries remained strong.

Asked about President Obama's remark - made before the EU referendum - that the UK would be "at the back of the queue" on trade deals if it voted to leave, Mr Kerry said it could take "at least a couple of years" to reach an agreement as the UK could not sign a new deal while it remained an EU member.

He said Mrs May had "hit the ground running" as prime minister, adding: "The United States of America depends on a strong United Kingdom."

The United States do not depend on us at all, we will be at back at the bus with the United States. We will have to depend on distant countries in Asia and the terms might not be favourable for us. Rebuilding the commonwealth? Many British people seem to forget our history with the commonwealth countries, it is highly unlikely that they will grant us with the same benefits that we experienced in the European Union.

Extracts from a Boris Johnson poem,while editor of The Spectator and Tories 'Culture Spokesman',insulting Scotland.
The Scotch,what a verminous race !
Canny,pushy,chippy,they're all over the place
Battening off us with false bonhomie
Polluting our stock,
undermining our economy.
......
It's time Hadrian's Wall was refortified
To pen them in a ghetto on the other side
I would go further.The nation
deserves not merely isolation
but complete extermination

It's just as well we have a sense of humour.Under present laws that could be classed as a race hate crime.

BTW this is a US owned website,so surely our American friends are entitled to their opinions !

Brexit means Brexit. Ties to the commonwealth were stretched beyond the necessary and some people pursue 'their rightful ancestry' through sovereign means to work the sterling in their favour, and we all know that when the Euro goes down, the pound will dip slowly before it goes back up.

I deplore the ones who presume that leavers have little or no taste in a free democracy. It's what our ancestors fought for after all, and when Cameron was in doubt to the 'men who laid down their lives for us and Great Britain' which part of that injustice rings any bells?

Those who set up the Euro were in denial of their futures and were trying to unite the poorer countries with wealthier ones who in contrast have dampened the enthusiasm of labour in quite considerable means.

Editors in the Washington Post should consider taking Assam or Darjeeling tea, before it spins some more yarn from the hornets nest.

Quote-
The former journalist is known for his deliberately provocative manner, ruffled appearance and penchant for sometimes-insulting commentary," it says.

It reminds its readers that just two months ago, "a poem he concocted about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan having sexual congress with a goat won the first-place prize in a contest sponsored by Spectator magazine."


Should this force the motive of shock and horror from the horses mouth onto America's 'fragile' relationships with the middle East? Pursue Syria with enhanced caution and not use a territorial excuse to blow up entire cities. Like what Russia has done.

Tony Abbott and Boris Johnson looking cosy, friends of down under with the wallabies and out with the good humour of Congress invisible red tape.

We are taking a leaf after all, not a leap. I could start buying more Aussie gear.. later on down the line.

Latest possible consequence of Brexit... negative interests rates, for central banks currently (and businesses?) - not personal users, but if stagflation increases banks could simply pass over the costs.

Well, the only redeeming thing about that is that Brexiteers might taste their own medicine, after all...

The only medicine that you're going to take, is when the far right comes' a calling down your dream phone for a wealth tax that will serve the economy and the NHS, and no longer cripple it.

Brexit is an interesting Google News search. You get a plethora of positive and negative pieces on a variety of subjects.

The state of our manufacturing industry still concerns me.

Looking at the crimes against humanity over the years, there is more sulphur in the melting pot now than, when others were stealing our exports on importing British steel. I am hopeful now that most will get a redundancy package from places like Port Talbot in Wales.
Maybe Mumbai can get a move on and fulfill the belated xmas wishes of up to eleven thousand of its employees.
There will now be instead a final salary pension plan to last for five years for those who are remaining in the U.K and need to take it, this will prevent any future redunancies from taking place.
I would like to point out that the employees deserve more than, the investors and shareholders are willing to put in as its almost as being treated with unfair dismissal, on the grounds of investor desertion.
The downfall of manufacturing is coming to a close and wil cease to exist in my country if somebody like a supposed chairman of the board is supposed to be 'maintaining' it. All they're hearing is, 'We tried', and, well, its not good enough.
If China wasn't so mindful of its deals to begin with then Trump wouldn't be imposing an Import Tariff on them now, and its the only good bit of business sense he's come up with so far.
My country however, still needs to repair itself and take a firm grip against foreign losses and greed, defend its living wage and human rights whilst standing up for itself from any pending negotiations.
Taking a stance on democracy isn't such a bad thing, it shows the world what we're made of and we're made of tougher steel.
