Labour’s task is to arm its working class supporters with a narrative of hope
There were three, mass political events last weekend. Around 250,000 people marched in London against Trump. The next day more than 50,000 marched against him in Edinburgh. The third event was, on a population basis, the biggest: “upwards of 200,000” reported the Mirror, drawn mainly from a region of just 2.5 million people.

What was its name? If you only watch the national news you won’t know, because it wasn’t covered. The answer is, the 134th Durham Miners Gala.

America must deal with Donald Trump, the first rogue president | Simon Tisdall | Opinion | The Guardian
The view from outside is clearer.

> The real Trump problem is not transatlantic. It is America’s to deal with. By now, Europeans have mostly rumbled him. But far too many Americans still don’t get it. Having long proclaimed the superiority of the US governance model, it transpires Congress is unable or unwilling to hold him in check. The unbalanced supreme court, soon to embrace another arch-conservative, is no defence against White House abuse of executive orders, and parti pris American media cannot be relied upon to tell truth to power. Rogue Trump is a crisis made in America. America is where it must be fixed. The world is watching, with diminishing sympathy.

Many haters at the lower ends of intelligence...
“I'm much more humble than you would understand.”

“I have the best temperament or certainly one of the best temperaments of anybody that’s ever run for the office of president. Ever.”

“I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far. Nobody’s ever been more successful than me.”

“I'm the least racist person you will ever interview.”

"Number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life. Number two, racism. The least racist person"

“I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to the Secret Service.”

“No one has done more for people with disabilities than me.”

"Nobody in the history of this country has ever known so much about infrastructure as Donald Trump."
