I really think there should be an age limit on candidates. How can a 77 year old have the energy needed to run a country? by the time of the next election he'll be 81. Crazy! And trump isn't much younger. Surely with America being the size it is they could find 2 better and younger candidates?

To run for President you need loads of money. Unfortunately it tends to be the older people who are the billionaires.

I am starting to think that Trump is right, in that it is now widely accepted that the CIA or its affiliates murdered President Kennedy, so who is to say that in years to come, it will come out that the real powers that be in America, rigged the election to get rid of Trump, because he is a nob, a CIA black ops operation, just like the assassination of John F Kennedy

They could have looked at the main vote count from the voting stations, and then decided how many postal votes would need to be falsified, in order to swing the election in favour of Biden, in the swing states .....

This is what Matthew Parris wrote about President Trump in today's Times.

My own response to the (presumably) outgoing US president began in disgust but has edged not to admiration — never that — but a wary appreciation of what he’s been right about. President Trump has shifted the shape of American policy both at home and abroad. There have been some appalling missteps but in a handful of big ways, more than his critics on the left are prepared to allow, this reset was urgently needed.
The Trump presidency was ahead of almost all of us in its visceral understanding of the threat to the West posed by communist China. Clever people have been muttering about this (some, like our last governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten, more than muttering) for decades, but Trump took the bull by the horns. Post-Trump, neither his own country nor Europe will ever be able return to their relaxed confidence that China’s rise can happen in a way that meshes easily with western interests. Trump saw that it must be at best a scratchy business. He saw that crude shin-kicking has a role in international affairs. He saw the same with North Korea, too.
And there were shins that needed kicking. Our European Nato allies, reluctant to pull their weight in contributions to the organisation, deserved it, and from Trump they got it. In the coronavirus pandemic the World Health Organisation, from which Beijing has blackballed Taiwan’s membership, made a disgraceful start by ducking that island’s warnings about what was happening on the Chinese mainland. Trump gave the WHO both barrels.
It’s all very well for those of us who see the importance of “multilateral” institutions like the WHO and its parent United Nations to bewail America’s turning away; but if President (as I hope) Biden is to re-engage, then Washington will now start with a much stronger hand. Somebody has to play hard cop. Trump had a gut appreciation of that.
We British should stray only hesitantly into commentary on American domestic affairs, so I’ll venture just two thoughts about Trump as a national leader.
First, the political climate in which the last Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, could even think about calling Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables” had lost its bearings. Trump can be criticised for weaponising the tens of millions who fall through the gaps in the American dream; he can be criticised for over-steering; but he effected a radical course-correction that the Democratic Party must get behind if it is not to flounder in the years ahead. And, laugh as we might at his “beautiful wall” solution to America’s porous southern border, we’d be fools to laugh off the discomfort felt by millions that the influx across that border has been out of control.
Second, although America clearly has a tremendous problem with its police culture, elements in the Black Lives Matter movement started threatening public order in a way which, were I living there, would have alarmed me too: not so much for my own safety as for an erosion of respect for the rule of law that “liberal” America (including Biden) seemed nervous of calling out.
In calling it out, Trump undoubtedly dog-whistled to racists and bigots, but he spoke for many who were not racists or bigots. When he publicly insulted the government of China, he dog-whistled to jingoists and xenophobes, but he spoke for many who were neither. When he spoke for left-behind blue-collar America, he dog-whistled to many rabble-rousing rednecks, but he spoke for many more thoughtful Americans, too. When he abused Angela Merkel in personal terms, he dog-whistled to many foolish isolationists, but he spoke for many who were rightly resentful of EU protectionism.
And here we come to what it is about Trump’s successes that so profoundly depress me as a commentator who would hope to place myself among the thoughtful centre-right in politics.
Are we entering an era in which the right’s only route to power in democratic politics is via the nastier kind of populism? Is there no longer hope for intelligent right-wing parties that do not clothe themselves in vulgar demagoguery? Can right-of-centre thinking no longer be sold except on the populist ticket?

I cast my mind back over our own British Tory political history. I think of Lord Salisbury’s deep and eloquent scepticism about change; of Stanley Baldwin’s appeal to all that was mild, moderate and commonsensical in the English character; of Churchill’s deft blend of what was rousing and what was prudential; of Harold Macmillan’s alloy of paternalism with the common touch; of John Major’s huge appeal in 1992 with gentle conservatism delivered from the soap box. And then of David Cameron’s increasing struggle to define a compassionate and tolerant Toryism that could keep the nasties on board.
But most of all I think of perhaps the last Tory leader to walk successfully the tightrope between intelligent right-wing politics and populism. Margaret Thatcher (for whom I slaved in the dungeons as an aide before she became prime minister) had a super-keen ear for the discontents of what snootier colleagues would have called the ordinary people, but combined it with an equally keen brain for policy, and a deep distrust of mob rule.
Will she, and her mentor Sir Keith Joseph, prove the last to harness a muzzled kind of populism? These days the intellectual right often seem cold and emotionally disconnected: so horribly uncharismatic in an internet age when deference to intellect or expertise is dead, and many operate more on sentiment than logical analysis.
Trump saw that. But how, if not in The Donald’s way — through appeal to an unconsidered kind of patriotism and crude messaging about looking after our own — does the 21st-century centre-right bridge the gap between popular concerns and right-of-centre solutions?
Prominent in commentary in the weeks ahead will be the view that Trump’s administration got many things right, but that Trump was a slob, and a dreadful salesman for Trumpism. But what if it’s worse than that? What if only slobs can sell conservatism to 21st-century electorates? Truly, as Gove said, does wisdom take many forms: and Donald Trump’s may have been a terrible kind of wisdom.

Don't seem to see anything of Matthew Paris on the TV these days.

There is no doubt that Trump has had the balls to tackle some major issues, which his predecessors have shied away from, such has the military expansionism of China, and the way that China is expanding economically at a terrible cost to the environment, the pollution which China produces is truly horrific for the planet, and Trump has tackled the illegal immigrant Mexican criminals, who have plagued the USA for years supplying copious amounts of narcotic drugs

But as Matthew Paris alludes to in his final paragraph in that article, is that Trump is so bloody rough and uncouth, and it looks well that only a nobhead like Trump will tackle the most difficult of political issues.

Maybe the fact that the way things are going with Trump and that, a war with China is going to be inevitable with the way that Trump is going at the Chinese, and the powers that be, have decided that a war with China, which could involve a China - Russia alliance, and that could lead to Nuclear War and the inevitable Nuclear Annihilation of the planet, which would follow ....

Well at least we have now left the EU and all that uncontrolled immigration, imagine if we had stopped in the EU, and still had an extra million immigrants coming into this country every three years.

Between 2005 and 2015 after Tony Blair opened the immigration floodgates, the UK population increased from 60 million to 65 million and now it is 66 million (2019) in 1960 it was 52 million, so it has slowed down a lot since the referendum, but it will only be completely under control after the EU transition period ends in about six weeks time

Surely it comes down to things which are done on'th insurance, if yoo get poorly sick in the good old US of A, then you put a claim in on the insurance, and so everything charged to the insurance companies is top wack price

Same as over here if you have a bump in your car, and it is your fault, if you are fully comp, then you can pay for it to be fixed yourself, or have it fixed on the insurance, but if it is done through the insurance, then yoo lose your no claims bonus, but the job will be done properly and the repairer will charge the insurance company the going rate, or he may do it on the cheap if you are paying for it yourself, but it might be a bodged job, and I know you have loss adjusters who try and stop profiteering, but it still goes on, and I would imagine it is the same with medical insurance, in that if you have a cough, then you might buy a bottle of Benylin and you treat yourself, and you are right as reign in a few days time, but if you go to a private doctor, and he knows you have Boopa, then he may say that you need a heart and lung transplant, costing three million quid

Although the NHS is free at the point of use it costs in taxation around £9000 per year for a family of four.
