Feel free to make up other fun scenarios!

The 6 counties joins the Free State and all your problems are solved.
If there's a majority for it on both sides of the Border, I'm A-OK with it. Have fun with the DUP.
DUP are a nostalgic lot.

The madness of Jean-Claude Juncker.

indeed, Paul posted the video in this thread a couple of days ago.
Juncker was unsteady on his feet in the video, not sure if he was drunk

May is starting to look like Trump - adding petulance to incompetence.

Her approval ratings are much higher than Trump's: https://news.sky.com/story/poll-gives-t ... m-11582440
The difference between May and Trump is that she is fighting for her country, while Trump is fighting for his criminal cabal.

We all know how unbiased the Rasmussen organization is. Macron has issues, no doubt about that.

Rasmussen was 1 of 3 polling organizations which correctly predicted how close the 2016 presidential election would be.
So yes, unbiased and accurate.

While most news outlets thought this/him pretty disgusting the totally unbiased BBC managed the lame:

“EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker was filmed enthusiastically ruffling the hair of a woman at the summit today.”

Pernilla Sjölin. Of all things, she is the EU deputy chief of protocol. Ruffling does not seem to be according to protocol.

Probably calls for a 15 yard penalty for ruffling the passer.
