Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

I think that is exactly the kind of statements that Tusk is making that plays into the the brexiteers hands. I can only assume that Tusk thinks that actually Europe is better off destroyed. What kind of diplomacy is it? However he is of course right? Who in their right mind would support anything wh...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Come on, rmax! I don't know whether you are being serious! Let's suppose you are. There's Side A and Side B. And the BBC support Side A, say. ("Why" is the really interesting question.)
