If Le Pen is elected, that would surely be the end of the European Union.

No, the way I read it, is it would just mean she'd have to put it to a referendum. Frexit, if you like.

It was said on radio today that Diane Abbot was attacked after her monumental cock up yesterday because she is black. No she was attacked because she was totally and utterly incompetent.

That sentence does not make sense and is open to interpretation. Elaborate please.

It makes perfect sense if you are aware of what she said in an interview yesterday.

There was a discussion on Radio at lunchtime where it was suggested all the flak she got after that interview was because she was black. Simple really.

Agree with your statement now that I have listened to the show. The guest is trying to be provocative, of course and that's why they had her on. Bit cheap really.

Are the Russians at it again? The Macron campaign has been hacked two days before the election!

I don't remember hearing the term "fake news" until Trump started using it. Macron is saying these hackers are planting fake news about him!

If there was any truth in the rumours that Russia had hacked into his email accounts to influence the elections, then why did he still win? Therefore, the rumour that they hacked into Hillary's email accounts to encourage a Trump victory in the US is equally bollocks, surely?
