Aren't you pleased?

YOu want him to sum up your Queen as he did the French prime ministers wife?...like an antique sports car?

Actually it would be funny to see him try to hand wrestle her........"JUMP ON HIM BOYS!!!!!"

Part of me wants him to come just so I can enjoy watching the protests and it might be enough to bring down the present government. Right now nritish politiocs is thoroughly depressing.

Am I being cynical ?

Yes, Bruv. But I agree with your question.

He probably had a golf date to go to. The blasted guy has spent half his presidency at his own golf courses with the American taxpayers footing the bill.

Surely the cost of the Presidency is there regardless of who occupies the office.

You'd rather he was in the War Room on a daily basis?

If he were to come over here, you can bet the BBC wouldn't cover the protests, and he would promote it at how warmly the British population welcomed him, and how any stories to the contrary were just Fake News.

Two things bother me:

1. If he's golfing half the time, he's not doing his job and, believe me, there are plenty of pressing issues he should be working on.

2. He golfs at his own courses exclusively! That means that he and all his security team eat there and the money goes straight into his own pocket. It's a total conflict of interest.

No, I'd rather he be on the job in his office on a daily basis. I NEVER want him in the War Room...and neither do you.

Apparently it was originally suggested that he might visit the Midlands or a strong UKIP area where he seemed quite popular but that came to nothing. This time - as befits a tv celebrity - it's his ratings that concern him and he wants May to arrange better Press coverage, according to the report above.

It will be an interesting test to see what the BBC reports if he comes over. Personally I have a suspicion that any visit would have to be incredibly stage managed with any protesters kept miles from the gibbon's location. Any rally would be to allow those who appreciate the support Trump and various associated charities gave Farage and brexit to say thank you.

Since I don't think the tango sh*t gibbon would settle for anything less than a parade through London and that would be a PR nightmare I think a visit would be stupid. NB that a week is a long time in politics, things at present appear to me to be an omnishambles and anything stupid is somewhere between possible and likely.
