Legend.

RIP Sir Bruce.

Loads of photos from Labrynth on this doc and people I've partied with down the years.

Thought the programme had a slightly fresher take than previius docs tbh. Always brings a smile to my face at least.

Arielle's birthday. This lot are going to Berghain.

Trumptard is one massive brain dead cunt. I know that's common knowledge but when a bit of diplomacy is needed so his Asian allies don't get cremated he's busy threatening to destroy N Korea with an offensive like they've never seen the likes of before. In the meantime South Korea, Japan and Guam get demolished. He really is thick beyond all reason.

When its the Chinese telling the US to dial down the rhetoric, you know we're in crazyland!

Did I hear something on the radio earlier about Trump claiming he'd had a phone call from the leader of the American Scouting movement in which Trump claims he was praised for the greatest speech ever delivered to the American Scouts and then within hours it came to light that there had never been any such phone call...?

It's fucking incredible isn't it.  We had a kid in my class at school who displayed traits a bit like Trump.

Tbf, I couldnt get past the opening where Ivanka and Donny were praising the Editorial and the guy saying that wasnt him but the Trumps were still going on and on.

I do like Lawrance O'Donnall's Last Word show. His opening statements are pretty damning.

Never a dull day.

I'm looking forward to the movie of all this. It would probably have been called All the Presidents men if there wasnt already a film with that title already!

Actually turned down a last minute ticket for the final as had plans already in place. It was a cracking game of cricket though and the Women's game has come on in spades!

Added to the England Womans Football team beating Spain in the Euros last night it was a great day for Womens sport yesterday.

The WH presser yesterday following Spicers resignation was a trip. You had Sarah Huckabee Saunders heavily made up reading a statement in monotone followed by Scarramucci wanking the POTUS off with his words.

He must have said he loved him at least half a dozen times during his stint. It was proper amateur hour and not a great advert for his media skills. But, hey, he loves Donny and said that his political instincts are amongst the best there is.

Looking forward to Spicey vs Spicey on SNL.

Fair play to him. Pretty much one of the hardest jobs in the world right now!

firing Muller is a given I'd say. How on God's green earth is his base still behind him? Approval rating hovering at 40%. How the hell is that even possible?

donald can't just fire muller. he has to direct his deputy attorney general (rod rosenstein) to do so, and i highly doubt rosenstein would comply. at that point, rosenstein would most likely resign. after that, firing muller gets kicked to rosenstein's deputy, who would almost definitely resign, as well. if we get to that point, i can't imagine congressional repubs would still be in lock step with donald. he totally fucked them on aca repeal. he's made turtle-puss and limp-dick paul ryan look like utter fools. sooner or later, there will be ramifications.

i think a lot more will shake out in the very near future, and as it does repubs still start to fraction. i have a good friend who works on the hill in dc. he is a hardcore repub, and runs in right wing think tank circles. he was just telling me that the climate in dc is beyond belief. his last text to me reads "the dam is about to break. this tension can not continue to mount." 

and regarding trump's approval...  the number is 36%, not 40%. might seem silly, but that is a big difference. i'd believe it can hit 25-27% before all is said and done.

Well, Donny's threat seems to have had no effect. Lets see how this pans out?

What about the unemployment numbers and the stock market? He has single handidly turned both those factors around. All by himself. Would never had happened if crooked Hilary was in charge. No way missy!

What a great new plan the GOP have now. Let the ACA fail but take no responsibility in its failure. Trump is a big baby!

Well, that was a bit of an embarrassment!

But, surely our generation isnt going to come out of this unscathed? However, If you have a pension you'll have actually done alright since Brexit as the devaluing of the pound vs the rise of the FTSE has pushed up pots tremendously.

Ignoring Brexit for a mo, from a personal point of view life is great. Start a new job in September and as a result I have to spend the summer in the garden rather than the office.

Pre-referendum, the UK was, imo, heading in the right direction, albeit very slowly. Personally, job was stagnatting along with compensation, its not all sweetness and light in the financial section. Post-referendum, the country is more divided then at any time over the last thirty years.

We're standing on the edge of the cliff face waiting to fall or falter ready to point accusitory fingers at anyone and everyone. Just when the country needs to pull together (cross party consensus is needed more then ever) you have the far reaches of the political spectrum wanting to fuck things up or play the blame game.

Thus just shows Corbyn is never a leader as he doesnt have it in him to be anything other than opposition. May seems to be at least reaching out (to save her own skin) but has the party grandees ready to push but wont dare as the other option (Corbyn) is unthinkable both to them and any positive Brexit, if it ever happens as he clearly wants the harder version.

The Repeal Act writing all current EU Laws in to statute is great, but the powers taken out not to debate changes is not.
