If the US elected by the popular vote do you not think that maybe Trump would have campaigned very differently?


Do you think that he could have done it any other way than using his platform of fame to lecture on politics?
As (he was) a reality tv star, sex pest and congenital liar I can't see what other avenues he had back then
obviously now he's got some other tools to play with, but back then he was famous for being a bit famous and used it to great effect

You're right though that they're really irritating...

Probably just pipped by anti-vaxers (especially celebrity anti-vaxers) though
- especially irritating because it's normally the single distinguishing aspect of them... without that bit of pseudo science to cling to they'd be so utterly bland as to not register at all, and that would be fine!
But instead they're a wonky wheel on the supermarket trolley of life; unhelpful, not identified until it's too late and just wrong enough for you to notice ( and to wind you up as a result)

No special reasons required for disliking her, but anything particular? I've worked with her, and she's charming. And very, very bright.

Not that intelligence is everything, of course. I wouldn't doubt that Dominic Cummings or Steve Bannon have their attributes. :(

Fiona Bruce. That coy smirk, that annoying touch of youthful blusher on the cheekbones, that apparent inability to tell between serious and amusing news. Only FB could have smiled her way through the stories of migrants drowning in the Channel.

I wouldn't know whether she's any good on Question Time. I never manage to keep the TV on for long enough. :evil:

Lewis Hamilton

In fact any sports star that lives in an offshore tax haven but drapes themselves in the Union Flag when they win something.

No contest.

(total recs 11)

A teenager with multiple mental health disorders who is, not unreasonably, concerned about the future habitability of the planet? I think this reflects badly on the LF demographic. After all, most of us were irritating at that age and she may well grow out of it (to some extent, at least) as she gets older.

Diane Abbott, on the other hand...
