Unbelievable and disgraceful scenes in Washington have been caused by Trumps earlier incitement. He now has to accept responsibility for what has occurred in the Capitol.
The critics and enemies of the west, in general, and the USA specifically, will be leaping for joy. They surely cannot believe their luck as they watch the symbolic pinnacle of democracy in a state of chaos. Trump and his supporters have achieved what the haters and dissenters have not.
Biden was spot on when he called for order, accusing the rioting Trump supporters of “insurrection “. He also, quite rightly, called on Trump to tell his people to back down.
Unfortunately Trump, instead of going on TV, has issued twitter call for his people to “go home”. This was insipid at best.
Of huge concern now must be how Biden can possibly heal the broken United States of America.
Giving MPs a £3000 pay rise at this time, would have been immoral. Also, a slap in the face, to the hundreds of thousands of British people, who have lost so much financially and personally, during the pandemic.
It’s the right decision. Indeed, given Britain’s financial state and the economical hard road yet to be travelled, I find it hard to forsee that such a pay rise would be acceptable anytime soon.
So glad that Romain, appears, to have escaped this horrendous crash.
Thankfully, the previously controversial “halo” seems to have saved his life. Methinks the value of this safety feature will be viewed somewhat differently from now on. Any debate about the aesthetics will now be firmly in the bin.
Hopefully, given the magnitude of the incident, Romain has, relatively, minor injuries.
I use that term advisedly, as burns and potentially broken bones are not to be sneered at.
I would also like to mention the medics and marshals who deserve our thanks and respect for their amazing response during the aftermath of this incident.
Romain is receiving treatment at hospital and I wish him well, a speedy recovery and hope we see him racing again soon.
I am so done with these fucking idiots. I do despair at the selfishness that they display..
If they want to put themselves at risk that’s their business.
But, by their actions, they risk infecting everyone around them. OK, they are surrounded by like minded individuals, so who cares if they infecting each other?
But the truth is, it doesn’t end there. By arranging these mass gatherings they put the emergency services at risk.
Such as the police, who could be doing something more productive with their time, have to monitor / control the marchers.
And, because there is always a rogue element who see a peaceful protest as an opportunity for mayhem, the medics also end up wasting their time on these idiots before transporting them to our already overloaded hospitals.
Selfish. It’s the only way to describe their actions.
