Hark at the bloody kettle!

Still, you might want to polish off those reading glasses before going around calling fellow members trolls.
As you‘ve previously harrumphed comprehension skills on the Forum are inferior to your own, mangling an idiom only confuses us thickos: surely it's "Pot"?

Then again, as a Trumpian neologism it‘s aptly relevant to the thread.

I love being lectured by grammar school boys. Always good to know my place.

No, it doesn't, but I am intrigued as to why someone would describe it as a shithole.
I also lived up in a northern town which has been described as the 'worst place to live in the UK' and I personally enjoyed it more than London.

To me it seemed a lot more British too.

I've never lived there, and have never wanted to. I know the city pretty well from work and visits, but the closest I ever lived to it is a tiny little village of less than 1,000 people between Heathrow and Datchet. The sole reason that I wouldn't want to live in London is that I prefer living in towns. To me, cities are where I go to work and play. OH lived in Deptford for a few years in a shared house full of Saffas and Aussies, so a lot of their nights out were in Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith, etc...
Ah Hammersmith, I remember attending a live Dave Clark concert in the Odeon over 50 years ago.
Trump does not know what he is missing; as I am making a vague gesture towards the thread title

Let me just reply to that, who is Raheem Kassam?

The London editor for Breitbart and former chief advisor to UKIP. The guy, regardless of his Muslim background is not exactly an impartial commentator. Seems he is happy to make a good living out of being an antagonist.
Try ignoring his colour, his background, where he's worked and just listen to what he says. You may learn something, racist.

I think I can understand a part of your point of view, some of what you've mentioned seems like a reasonable criticism, whether people like to admit or not. However, I'm not sure if you want to attribute all those knife crimes in UK to the black community. You know very well that linking a type of crime only to certain communities can be quickly dismantled by stats.
I haven't attributed it to the black community. I've attributed it to black London gangs. There is a difference.

Scum making the headlines of the back of supporting a President that they view as in tune with their racist agenda. I find this utterly sickening.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a8157361.html
Whilst the protesters are likely scum. There is no question that the Fabians are one of the most contemptible organisations in the UK. There's a reason for their original coat of arms you know.

As an aside, whilst London is hit by a rising crime wave, it's good to know Mayor Sadiq has his priorities set.

Lol, you needed to get that one in I know his agenda, nothing to do with his ethnicity. He is a tool, in more then one way.

Lol a society that lobbied for universal health care, the abolition of hereditary peerages and the first introduction of the minimum wage. Terrible concepts, just awful.

He’s an incompetent mayor, yes. But what pisses me off more is that he’s taking it upon himself to speak on matters it’s not his job to do. 80% of Londoners didn’t vote for him, yet he thinks he can say Trump isn’t welcome in London. This isn’t his place to say. He should concern himself more with running the city and reducing crime. British Muslim Pakistani or not.

You could also say 65% of voters did not vote for Brexit

It is irrelevant, he won, he has the job, he has the bully pulpit.

How could I forget, I was cherry picking facts as usual. Point being that its an old society and has most likely moved very far along from its original treatise. Not sure what any of this has to do with the POTUS, except that we don't want him visiting Britain.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

For some time now Trump has been alleging that the Russians bribed Americans, possibly including the Clintons, to get permission to buy a company with US mining rights for uranium.

Now the DOJ/FBI investigation into this matter has issued an indictment against an American for allegedly bribing Russians

Source DOJ press release.

"You could not make this up"!!

You could argue that I suppose, but Brexit was a simple yes/no question where leave won more votes than any single party in any single election ever. Either way, what's undeniable is that Khan is speaking out of turn given his role as London's mayor.
