Shared a dining table over many nights with two American couples while cruising back to Australia, I had a lot of fun winding them up as they were all rabid republicans, I came to realise that it really is a team sport to them. you pick your team and go all in. There was talk of emigration should Clinton win. Hilarious.

I have met an American couple recently who said that if Trump won they would emigrate, and they have and are happily living in Worcestershire.

So a couple of Democrats are happier living in the UK under the Tories than in the US under Biden. Interesting.
It would appear so, I think their position was how can we live in a country that could have Trump as President. So they left.
I know we have the obvious comparison to Johnson but even he did not manage to cause the mayhem of the Trump Presidency.

If I moved country every time the wrong party got in I'd have lived in half the planet by now. I've never met a Tory I'd like in government, but most of the time I'd much rather Tory rule than that of the slightly less right-wing US party. The chance of having something vaguely on nodding terms with even the centre-right is preferable to the political lack of choice in the States.

Have you heard yourselves?! You're lionising a country that's great, as long as you don't mention that guns and Donald Trump are a problem. It's a fucking dystopia!
Thinking the same - "It is great if you don't behave as yourself". Nah - I will give it a pass and stick to Thailand and thereabouts. (Used to visit Brazil a lot, but since they adopted mini-Trump, I have decided against visiting again, as things seem less safer now)

Anyway (why does everything have to turn into a political thread) Do we think Jhon will make the bench anytime soon?

If we do not sign a striker in this window i see that we would have no choice

I'm sure he'll be on the bench rather than having a second keeper on there.  Will be interesting to see if he gets any gametime.

Thailand? Can't think of any problems with the government there at all then?

To show my objection to authoritarian Governments, I'm taking the family to Pyongyang this year.

Haha - I was more thinking about the people you meet. Though, this probably goes everywhere, respecting local cultures is a must. (
