As Donald Trump prepares to swear in as the 45th US President tomorrow, the results of the US elections on November 8th still seem to have left this government flat footed to say the least.
It was an extraordinary sight to see Conservatives (and indeed Eurosceptic ones at that) not just being abusive about a potential leader of the free world, but in some cases even calling for Hillary Clinton to win.
2016 was a year of huge surprises for the establishment. A series of events that none of the so-called experts saw coming led us to the triple whammy of Brexit, the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States and a huge rebellion in Italy which resulted in the subsequent resignation of the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
Only a fool would say that in 2017 similar shocks cannot occur as Geert Wilders party consistently leads in the polls with a spring General Election fast approaching and Marine Le Pens campaign in France is also gaining momentum. It is therefore extraordinary that the British Embassy in Paris is not reaching out to all of the main contenders to be Frances next President, who will be elected in May.
Yet, Marine Le Pen has been excluded from this. Im not saying that she will win, but there is every chance she could, and Im pretty certain that she will at least make it to the final round. It seems our government are not learning from their mistakes.

Yes, finally we have a government that is as the Constitution envisioned, citizens taking time away from their personal lives to serve their fellow countrymen. And some of them are doing it free of charge.
“And some of them are doing it free of charge.”
Excellent observation. The Trump Administration is demonstrating the true definition of public service while the Democrats do everything they can rape the taxpayer.
Nigel, WM will be a great site...I looked at it and I hope it will not only be Britain’s Drudge, but Europe’s. Congratulations!!
