:lol: Good morning, Prime Minister!

edit: I don't see it as being outside the realm of possibility, but this is just Trump clutching at straws so as to not appear to be back tracking. (A shame then that he wrote the tweet about how important his use of quotes around wiretap were :slol: Make your mind up, Donny!)

So now Teresa May apparently has access to the information on the mythical Trump wiretap, which would be the case if it was performed by British intelligence. I expect this to be a point of contention when he has his state visit.

Okay, so Mexico, Australia, China, half the entire Middle-East, the EU in general... United Kingdom? Any other international relations he feels like throwing a spanner into?

The US has made a formal apology to Britain after the White House accused GCHQ of helping Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump in the White House.

The White House has promised allegations that GCHQ spied on Donald Trump will "not be repeated", according to the Prime Minister's official spokesman.

Intelligence sources have told The Telegraph that both Mr Spicer and General McMaster, the US National Security Adviser, have both apologised directly to the United Kingdom over the claims.

Outstanding.

Trump getting his two stooges to grovel at the feet of May.

British Empire version 2.0 is not far away.

Once Brexit finishes they'll all come grovelling back once they see just how mighty our economy is.

I can only imagine the sheer size of the intellectual chasm separating the two of them.

Look at his stupid strawberry floating saggy grumpy teenager face. He's an absolute clown.

You do have to wonder the scale of the epic strawberry float up he'd have to do to get impeached. Probably wanking in front of the Queen or something.

He has to do what Madoff did - screw with other wealthy people's money in a big way. Beyond that, that child rape case going to court and him being found guilty.

Anything less would require Democratic majorities to pull off.

I have hope that the mid-terms will see sanity return and Democrat voters turn out in force so Trump loses at least one house.

The GOP could lose a significant number of Governorships and seats in the House, but the Senate will probably remain more firmly in their hands - hopefully all with vastly reduced majorities.

Taking on healthcare lead to Clinton losing the houses in '94 IIRC, and it cost Obama his House majority, so hopefully the same thing will happen here. Healthcare became a huge quagmire for Obama, leading to the rest of the agenda he first campaigned on (jobs, the economy etc) taking a back seat. Trumpcare could easily fall foul of the same pitfalls, which would bode well for us as all the other gooseberry fool we don't want to happen would have to wait, and by then maybe he wouldn't be able to get it past the senate or congress.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...
