Aristocrat in court over allegedly racist Facebook post about Gina Miller | UK news | The Guardian

What a lovely chap!

Quote:
Philipps allegedly wrote: “£5,000 to the first person to ‘accidentally’ run over this bloody troublesome first-generation immigrant … If this is what we should expect from immigrants, send them back to their stinking jungles.”

I haven't finished this yet, because it's really long. It concerns 2016's U.S. election, Brexit, and probably some other stuff as well. Some people have claimed the impact of this particular firm has been over-inflated in reporting about it, and I don't really know whether that's accurate, but if this story is all true, it's alarming as hell.

Oh look, another "surprise".

Nigel Farage is 'person of interest' in FBI investigation into Trump and Russia | Politics | The Guardian

Quote:
Sources who spoke to the Guardian said it was Farage’s proximity to people at the heart of the investigation that was being examined as an element in their broader inquiry into how Russia may have worked with Trump campaign officials to influence the US election.

“One of the things the intelligence investigators have been looking at is points of contact and persons involved,” one source said. “If you triangulate Russia, WikiLeaks, Assange and Trump associates the person who comes up with the most hits is Nigel Farage.

“He’s right in the middle of these relationships. He turns up over and over again. There’s a lot of attention being paid to him.”
Farage: finally I'm a person of interest!

We oughta make a new thread for UK election topics. The Brexit referendum is so last year. And yet it isn't. This is all the same ... politics ... continued.

Anyway, polls have closed and exit polls have been released and the first results have been called.

Polls mean nothing any more and exit polls, said to be more reliable predictors, still mean nothing, so I am ignoring them. Go and hang your parliament somewhere else.

However, what other people say is fair game, especially right-wing angst.

Observe:

Former chancellor George Obsorne, now editor of a free London newspaper (more litter clogging up the Underground):
Quote:

I worked very well with Theresa May and I think she has intelligence and integrity.

Clearly if she’s got a worse result than two years ago and is almost unable to form a government then she I doubt will survive in the long term as Conservative party leader.

But you know we are all talking about a poll. So I’m nervous of making certain statements but look, the problem she will have if it’s anything like that number, she’s got Irish unionists … that does not get you necessarily to 326 and the Liberal Democrats on 14 here ... are so unlikely to go into coalition with the Conservatives this time round, not least because they’ve made commitments to things like a second European referendum.

So I look at those numbers, I helped put together the Coalition in 2010 and you could make the numbers quite easily add up if you could get the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives to come together. I look at these numbers, you can’t make them add up.

This relates somewhat to the election but it's more focussed on Brexit, so I'm placing it here.
