Sad as it is for me to say it I think Vince Cable is more right than Blair, BREXIT may never happen. That is, until the EU eventually splits into two, under the weight of its own contradictions, which is a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’.

May will not last beyond the summer, and until she gets sent packing, there will be no progress in the so called BREXIT negotiations, and unless the Conservatives wake up and appoint a young, telegenic and effective leader, they are doomed to be a party of old buffoons, who look and sound like Jeremiah and Methusla rolled into one.

Should there be an election, Labour will not get the easy ride they got last time, assuming a new Conservative Leader and if the Conservatives had any sense they would look into Momentum and dig very hard into Jeremy Corbyn‘s background and affiliations along with his deputy, and of course, Emily Thornberry.

The BBC could, and should, be privatised, along with the selloff of Channel 4, before any election is called, so that left wing bias is eliminated, and people like John Humphries,  Jon Snow, Michael Crick and others lose their ability to make trouble.

Opinion – Scandal of Donald Trump Jr’s alleged Russian collusion will force his father to resign, Columbia law professor predicts | The Independent – John Gelmini

As Dr Alf suggests, the plot thickens and the dangerous practice of letting your offspring and son-in-law get involved in official business is beginning to threaten the Trump Presidency which in many ways looks like a dynasty with the “King” at the top, being run by a “Baron”(acting as the real “King”( Jared Kushner), a young “Prince” (Donald Jr) and the “Princess in waiting” (Ivanka), ready to take over the throne, when the “King” has stepped down or gone back to being a television mogul.

No-one in America voted for Kushner, Ivanka or Donald Junior, and no-one could have conceived of the idea of the President living his ambitions for his daughter vicariously into the political process as if he had established a royal dynasty.

Americans probably thought that they had dispensed with this sort of thing in 1776, when they officially broke away from British imperial rule and became a republic but under Donald Trump it has been recreated minus the crowns and court intrigue.

I see a Pence Presidency on the horizon, and a wider Middle East war leading to further trouble, so the good professor from Columbia University may well be right.

Trump’s sons cannot look after the Trump Corporation’s business interests from a prison cell, so the price of that not happening might well be the end of the Trump Presidency, its replacement with a Pence Presidency and the preparation by Trump of Ivanka for the bigger role in 2022 or 4 more years after that.

In this way Trump’s political ambitions can be realised vicariously whilst his desire for self aggrandisement and bombast can manifest itself in new business ventures and opportunities to make television programmes and films.
