Boris.

Scroll down for Trump.

Remember to laugh. It's so much nicer than scowling.

Thatís the one

The Chinese knew what was going off and as usual will have just tried to cover it up until the penny dropped, oh ****

And as for WHO funding my arse. Countryís have a duty of care, put your hand up, thatís what itís all about !

From the WHO site

For health emergencies, we:

prepare for emergencies by identifying, mitigating and managing risks
prevent emergencies and support development of tools necessary during outbreaks
detect and respond to acute health emergencies
support delivery of essential health services in fragile settings.


Guess he has a point, they either failed in their duties or didnít get the nod?

So the usual negative stuff you post then. Something you don't think is working in your individual favour, quit. Don't work at it cause it's the right thing to do. Just quit in a strop. Take your ball home.
You don't need worldwide unity to achieve your goals. There's many treaties and organisations that do using the tools the members/signatories agree on.
The problem comes when the leader of the democratic world(cough) vacates the stage. Vacuums have a habit of being filled, sometimes by people you don't want.

Hiya BB

I saw Nancy Pelosi and the tearing up of the paper. To be honest I was more disappointed that she'd stooped to the same childish level as Trump than anything else.

I agree that their politics is devisive and vindictive. They make nasty and hurtful remarks about people on a personal level. Trump as much as anyone else. Not much point you and I going round in circles on this one.

however...

getting back on the thread track... (hopefully)

i think his decision regarding the WHO is a tactic to shift blame regarding the virus spread in the US

Edit - Ken - thanks for that. it's brilliant

I think it's time for a short, sharp shock of reality.

This place is truly showing its nasty side now. Surely this is a time for us to come together, not split apart. So much spite and venom is bad for the soul.

don't recall speaking favourably of the chinese economic system.

i did say that destroying it would have a knock on effect to world economy given the way it's all linked. (for example they might try to call in some of the Trillion dollar debt from the US...). I've posted a couple of times about the way British business happily looks the other way when they can get cheap labour and manufacture in China....

I have denounced their human and animal right activity before - along with other countries closer to home with similar issues.

as for your comments regarding family - I'd ask you not to imply that mine aren't 'REAL' in any shape or form. That is something you really don't know about.

and i'm not dangerous. i have a pet cat for goodness sake.

Hi Ocelot,

I was just pointing out with an example, that your wistful wish for a world unity is naÔve.
You have more chance of being struck by lightning.

Hi Mal,

In the US, the media is almost all left wing. There is very little counterbalance. And our media mirror it.
I gave you some examples, but I don't think you are fully aware of how divisive and vindictive US politics is.
Can you imagine the uproar and vilification if, in our parliament, a Labour chancellor stood reading out his budget and then, opposite him, the Tory shadow chancellor stood up and looked straight at the TV cameras for effect, and then tore a copy of the budget speech to pieces?
Well, that's what the lead Democrat Nancy Pilosi did, stood behind Trump's back, whilst he was addressing the whole nation during the State of the Union Address. It hardly raised a murmer in their media, or ours.
You can only judge Trump fairly, in light of the constant, hysterical attacks he is confronted with.

BB.

[mal] How can you speak favourably of the Chinese economic system, means you clearly dont understand it.

I have worked in china, have chinese and hong kong friends, and do a lot of work that involves China.

They are TERRIBLE, the way they treat business. They steal companies IP (intellectual property), hack data from companies, especially pharmaceutical companies to steal their data and research and causing the original company to go bankrupt. They do DDOS (denial of service to bring done IT networks) attacks on UK fintech and AI, and medical companies They have taken over hundreds of gold and rear earth metal mines in africa at gun-point. They treat animals and the enviroment with absolute evil. They treat their people with absolute evil. I could go on and on...

...and you have 'Peace and Love' in you're signature? I'm from a REAL family of REAL hippies (not so much anymore tho), you're dangerous!!

fair enough

As to your idea about a more effective organisation than the WHO - with actual powers - one could argue that already exists in the form of the UN. They have a remit to protect and ensure the safety of member nations. Could that not be seen to cover public safety in medical crisis?

But then you have someone - let's call him Donald - who makes thinly veiled threats to nations that might vote in opposition to the US in UN debates, so maybe the UN is not so useful after all....

Trump hasnít got himself where he is through diplomacy, he is driven by dollars and cents..
In which case you can see his point. AS the biggest contributor and leader of the country whoís currency makes up a huge chunk of other member contributions, I imagine itís frustrating that his wishes for border control and a lack of transparency in Chinese developments werenít in his favour.
The WHO canít be expected to police and enforce measures in corrupt nations, they can only research and advise according to science. Itís up to countries to act on that information and share their own findings without a political or secretive agenda. Given the biggest contributor is now the biggest horror story and the country of origin of the problem will and can never be MADE to provide clarity by the WHO, Heíll be wondering what is the point in supporting them going forward...
Letís be honest, trump probably sees 99% of world health issues as fake news or somebody elseís problem.
