What would have happened if Hillary won ?

Would people be calling for Bill to be removed from the White House?

Think you have a fair point there whitey. I think given the ramifications of public opinion since Weinstein, a traditional politician like Hillary would have been under severe pressure regarding her behavior around the time of her husband's case. Would have caused a huge backlash, and had she been president, may well have been enough to prevent reelection.
There has been a lot of public retraction of support and people who were supportive of President Clinton who look back now And realize the error of their ways. (and his)

Teflon Don however, nothing sticks...

I think Henderson is a decent honest footballer, but Keita arrives and his number is up. Not sure Can is any different, stronger  but slower than JH. Henderson didn't have anything to offer to break down the massed defence. Salahs goal was excellent and created from nothing, he never actually looks at goal between getting the ball and shooting. That individual ability to break a defence is required at this level. Mane had a stinker.
Lovren is too prone to mistakes, as is mignolet, both surely on borrowed time. Klavan is a stop gap who did well yesterday. Robertson did well given lack of game time, Joe G is flying.

I'd rather Schmeichal than Van Dyke in January window. Also not clear to me what Liverpool would want with another winger.

Mane was off his game today- heavy touches and passes weighting off a fraction too.

foxy and whitey.

can Jeff Bezos also fire trump for his actual (non funny) completely false tweets?

first one on the economy is pure fishing - unless you are suggesting that some implemented legislation by Trump caused the economy to grow before he announced he was running for office?

Er has anyone asked the Dublin Govt or people in the South? I will bet money that any referendum would not reach anywhere near 40% in favour of unity and I'd doubt if it would endorse the North staying in the EU.Dont get over excited.

Baseless opinion with no data whatsoever, again...

Do the words "sample size" mean anything to you?

DUPís Paisley is now quoting the 4% GDP hit to the RoI economy as detailed in its own impact assessments of No Deal...
Note: there are no UK equivalents from which to quote

If 4%:roi could be 8% NI.  Paisley ”g is a moron

I have first hand experience of DUP's economic studies and unless there has been a significant change in the last couple of years, there is zero interest in economic facts or trends. They start with a politically charged answer and try and find some theory or data that could possibly be construed as supportive. They then stretch the truth, make completely unethical and illogical connections to support the pre-ordained conclusion.

They can be (and have been!) completely debunked by a bunch of QUB economics undergrads.

DUP studies, contradiction in terms, unless the word Bible is in there, and to be honest- even then...

Interesting question.

Did Brexit voters vote to leave the common market, the customs union and the ECJ?

Or is Tim Shipman right, and are those just notions taken by theresa may and Nick Timothy?

You keep stating your opinions as facts.

Dublin does not want nor can it afford nearly 2m extra people a million of which will be disgruntled.

No part of this is in any way shape or form anything other than your misguided conjecture.

Sovereignty always rested with the voters of the six counties.I remember there was a border poll in the early 70s.This concept long predates the GFA.

The problem is the UK with full agreement of Dublin won't even permit a border poll,even though unionism is in the minority in terms of Stormont seats.Let's be honest,if there was by some miracle unanimous support for a United Ireland here tomorrow,Dublin would crap itself.

Aye Tony, they have to give back 13 billion they don't want, where are they going to put the additional tax revenues and economic benefits of a 32 county economy?

Whitey, it's a tough spot All right that we find ourselves in now. Dems are rudderless and leaderless and completely drifting. The GOP just screwed over anyone not wealthy enough to know a senator or congressman. And please, let's not pretend trickle down works, or that Corp tax savings are spent on job creation. Or that the Dems were proposing anything other than the same auld shite.

So my good old fashioned safety net capitalism has no home. I can't abide our current CIC, (an American Ian Paisley) I think he is so utterly and completely out of his depth that it's not funny, and completely in the pocket of  his donors and others who may have leverage, but what politician isn't? However he is acting as if there is no tomorrow, and for me, with dual citizen children, I really believe he is doing my kids an injustice, giving the breaks to donors and screwing the poor with this tax bill. And his foreign policy, or complete lack thereof is mortgaging the place of the  US in this world. I still give him a pass if he kick starts the infrastructure bill, but at this point, the tooth fairy and santa are proposing and seconding the bill...

Screwed I tell ya. And not a single elected official with a plan.

I used to say vote C, none of the above, bit the fact that I think the status quo is better than where we are now speaks volumes...

And even with all that shite, I can't stand the false patriotism of Fox and Friends. What you call the MSM may be shite, but at least they aren't Cray Cray. The nonsense being peddled at this point in time will be viewed in the years to come as lunacy. But at least the MSM as some attempt at reality and truth and balance. Fails often but at least tries. Fox Breitbart, Trump Twitter, all complete and utter shite,  1984 ain't got shit on 2017. Doing a fundamental disservice to the middle class, Imbuing unfounded prejudice and hatred to a hard working population that deserves better health care, better education, more social mobility and the truth.

Maybe next time...
