    What a farking system!!
    They’re now reporting that the final results may not be known for a few days yet as military postal votes don’t have to be in until the deadline of 9th November.
    World leaders my arse. I bet the election broadcasts are being shown uncensored in China to show how democracy works.

    Trump has under funded the postal system deliberately to try to stop votes getting through on time, he knows postal votes will not be for him.

    I've decided to abandon my 'alien spaceship hiding in the asteroid belt and aiming an insanity beam at the Earth' theory.

    I'm pretty sure the aliens have held a board meeting and watching our news broadcasts, have decided that an insanity beam is the very last thing that's needed down here.

    The very definition of the word superfluous.

    It will be interesting to see what the Republican Party does about him.

    He could waste the next four years for them, when they could be grooming a proper candidate.

    It will be interesting to see what the Secret Service will do about him. Would you really want to give your life for Trump if you were them?

    What will Trump do next...
    1/ Spend a couple of weeks trying court action.
    2/ Step down early December.
    3/ Miraculously get a presidential pardon from Spence. Hey presto no more worries about tax evasion etc etc. (Anyone remember tricky Dickie Nixon.)
    Any bets anyone??
    Alternatively, does anyone know of a decent grassy knoll close to a Scottish golf course?

    When America set sail it cut loose.

    It is not your, nor my, problem now.

    The old, rich, white guy won.

    No, not that one, the other one.

    Let us all rejoice that the interests of old, rich, white guys will prevail.

    Give the Rednecks their due, they did vote in an old, rich, orange guy.

    The most significant bit is a woman is now in The White House. It has taken this long, but now it's happened. She's my bet for 2024 president.

    Be very careful what you wish/ hope for.
    England wondered what it would be like with a woman Prime Minister.

    Look how that turned out.
