Meanwhile Alexi Smertin is appointed head of racism investigations for the 2018 World Cup after saying Racism doesn't exist in Russia

Didn't know that.  Just read that he said this,

Alexei Smertin wrote:

There’s no racism in Russia, definitely, because you know it does not exist. It’s just like a fashion. It comes from abroad, from different countries.  Fan abuse is something against the opposition, not against a person. It was never, ever here before. Ten years ago, some fans may have given a banana to black guys – it was just for fun.

it's funny because it's got the word kak in it, which incidentally is South Africanism for Shit Pronunced: KUK

Apparently,

(first usage) 1829, "government by the worst element of a society," coined on analogy of its opposite, aristocracy, from Greek kakistos "worst," superlative of kakos "bad" (which perhaps is related to the general word for "defecate")

In fact I'd say it's a stretch to believe any Western politician is elected fairly these days when it's obvious that Corporatocracies are bang in season.

Was reminded recently of a word I hadn't heard in years - quite possibly THE word of our times and, without doubt, the word of the year...

kakistocracy
noun, plural kakistocracies.
Government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power.

any retort by Morgan can be met with: 'Yeah, but you hacked a dead girl's phone, mate'

At the risk of pedency - whilst acknowledging that Morgan is a cunt supreme, I'm not sure anything tied him to Millie Dowler did it...?

Other phone-hacks in all likelihood and 100% nailed-on the faking of photos to try and shame British troops - just not the 'dead-girl's-phone'

Man Utd & Chelsea fans got to be wondering how come they never saw anything like the best of Falcao - his second tonight was sublime.

none of that phases him. he likes the support of the little people, but their rebukes have no effect. look at the massive protests again today. he has zero fucks to give. you've gotta remember, this guy is an elitist pig. being blown off by fellow leaders and elites is what will put him on tilt.

Mate, whilst I don't disagree with your assessment of what does and doesn't matter to Trump I'm not sure it's the job of the UK Establishment to effectively slap-down a fairly elected, sitting, President of the USA.  God knows the UK has extended full State visits to far, FAR, worse individuals than Trump, representing far, FAR, worse regimes than his administration.  The US public, over the course of 18+ months, decided they want to be led by Donald Trump - the fact our House of Commons has to waste its time 'debating' an online petition to deny him his traditionally accorded due is pathetic.  Get the cunt over here and heckle the fuck out of him.  It is for the US public and Establishment to 'put him on tilt' as you say.

omg can you guys pleeeeeasssse block trump's state visit? these protests are awesome, keep it up.

I'm all for the cunt coming over - possibly doesn't need all the bells and whistles of a full state visit but I don't want the cunt banned.  I want him over here, in all his absurdity, so he can see/hear/feel the full contempt that a very great many British folk feel for him.  Every time his official car stops to let him out and into whatever venue he should have to run the gauntlet of thousands, maybe tens of thousands, of folk giving him the benefit of their opinion...

Not a lot of 'prog' on the list...

Think the most I've ever spent on a record was £28 (RitM - Phases of an Out Of Body Experience) - you?

Best thing about Dominique?
Hold tight for feedback...

No, they're all forum cunts.

Describe Dominique in three words
Still in suspense.

What do you think she made of you?
Bitch wouldn't tell me on the night for some reason...

Did you go on somewhere?
None of your fucking business.

And… did you kiss?

If you could change one thing about the evening, what would it be?

NBC reporter Peter Alexander: "You said today that you had the biggest electoral margin since Ronald Reagan – 304, 306 electoral votes. In fact, President Obama got 365 in 2008."
Trump: "Well, I'm talking about Republicans."
Alexander: "President Obama 333, George H.W. Bush 426 when he won. So why should Americans trust..."
Trump: "I was given that information, I was just given it. We had a very big margin."
Alexander: "I guess the question is: Why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they receive as being fake, when you're providing information that is not accurate?"
Trump: "Well, I was given that information. I was, actually, I've seen that information around. But it was a very substantial victory. Do you agree with that?"
Alexander: "You're the president."

how 'bout it. i listening to the whole thing at my desk. had several lol moments. he is so stupid he can't even evade a fucking question. q: how can citizens trust you when you quote fake electoral college numbers? a: your ratings suck

Listened to about 40 minutes of it and then had to walk away - in that 40 minutes I'd gone from amused to frustrated and then flat out embarrassed for him.

A good chunk of the words he says literally don't make any sense when used in the way he uses them - he interrupts himself so much and flies off on so many tangents and down so many blind alleys, that you repeat back to yourself ten seconds or so of his speech and, as often as not, it literally just doesn't make any sense...

I read comments here and I see people from the two US political parties arguing amongst each other.

Idiot Americans. You argue here about your "Left" party and "Right" party. Within all of the possibilities of the true global political spectrum your choice of either major party (your only choice) is so limited to one tiny fraction of the spectrum. This slither of what could be, whether it is Democrat or Republican, is so far to the right in either case. It is so based on brainwashing you and taking your money to spend on it's HUGE military. It forces you to live in fear of enemies it has created and crushed over and over since WW2 ended. Why do so many people hate America across the globe? Answer: Because you have bombed country after country constantly for 70 years. Forced other countries in to debt beyond their control. Sold your lies or fear over and over. It's your fault that you are hated.

You think you are given choice, and you argue amongst yourselves whilst the rest of the world sees that the most powerful country on the planet has worked itself into a position of global domination that relies on it to be constantly at war and negatively interfering with the rest of the planet. Your last president spent every day of his 8 years at war with at least one country. Sometimes a few! Your current president will be no different. War. Constant war.

You're all brainwashed idiots. Next time you look at your tax bill think of the 1000+ US military bases all over the planet that your money is funding. Think of the BS fear and debt your government has forced you in to. Think about the culture you are forcing on the rest of the planet. Nobody asked the US to be the police of Earth.

You are brainwashed by your government bullies. Stop arguing among yourselves. Stop killing other people over and over around Earth. Stop forcing your values on everyone else. Stop treating people like shit. And the hate will go away.

How Barry Davies ended up playing second fiddle to John fucking Motson for 20+ years on the BBC is an absolute mystery to me. 

AND Barry Davies can cover loads of other sport with authority as well - Motson just spouts irrelevant statistics and then waits for the replay so he can work out what he just missed.
