    I’m sure you are all happy to know that Her Majesty’s Government survived a no confidence vote by 325 to 306.

      Oh, good. That means I won't have to remember a new PM's name in a couple months.

        Apparently you are incapable of distinguishing between walls designed to keep people in and walls designed to keep people out.

          "Drat, I was THIS close!"

          (Sorry, that's always the first thing I think of when I hear someone talk about a "vote of no confidence".)

            Well, a wall that's good at one tends to be equally good at the other. Kinda hard to build one-sided wall.

              I don't know why liberals are so against walls since they themselves live in bubbles.

                Easy. If Trump is FOR it, liberals are against it.

                  When I moved here back in the 70s I couldn't help but notice that the schools were all designed to keep people in rather than prevent trespassers. It's how they angle the barbwire at the top.

                    So if Trump were to declare he was for open borders then Chuck and Nancy would be building a wall with their own two hands?

                    Don't be silly.

                    They'd have their servants do it.

                      Nancy wants Trump to postpone the SotU Address because she's concerned about SECURITY!!!

                        What do they need security for? That is just promoting guns!

                          Is there a rule that says that Trump has to deliver the State of the Union in front of Congress? He could do it from the Oval Office, and they can all watch it on TV. No more security concerns.

                            He can actually turn in a written script - that's been done before.

                              It was done that way for much of the nation's history.

                                Since so many of them couldn't just "jet in" for the big shindig!
