I imagine the 31 million Venezuelans living under a dictator probably do.

No, I mean our self righteous media. I look forward to them railing against human rights abuses and poor conditions of the other countries in South America they can't name

The Venezuelan president has just gone full dictator. As with Erdogan in Turkey, this is definitely a story which needs to be covered.

All he has to do is condemn President Nicolas Maduro in no encertain terms, but he just can't do it. We've been here countless times before on a multitude of subjects and it's now beyond frustrating.


I find the unwillingness of the Corbynistas to see any problems more frustrating

When Trump announced he was standing for the Republican's as a Presidential candidate, I thought it was amazing. An utter buffoon from a rich, privileged background that was massively out of touch with normal people. "He's going to crash out of the nomination race early" I thought! "strawberry float, they selected him as candidate? LMAO! Clinton is going to wipe the floor with this fool!".

I for one welcome our new Rees-Mogg overlord.

I don't know who'd make the worst leader, Trump or Rees-Mogg.

To be fair to Rees-Mogg, he is actually reasonably intelligent so he wins that battle.

Trump claims victory anyway, tweeting incessantly about how well he did, regurgitating right-wing news outlets' headlines etc. Media soon baffled as to why everyone thinks he won, decides to call it a draw.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Conservative MP for North East Somerset, also criticised Clarks. "To call a pair of shoes for a girl Dolly Babe is dreadful. It's wrong in all sorts of ways ... this is just really silly," he told the BBC.
