Britain has a political party named "Britain First, an anti-Muslim group"? Is this Nigel Farage's outfit?

David, you're becoming too cynical when you try to equate Mrs May and Trump in any way whatever. Maybe you should spend less time reading "news". See a play. Listen to music. Take a walk. You'll feel better.

Mr. Farage is a member and was the leader of UKIP, which does not accept ex members of Britain First, or various others as members.
Britain First managed to turn out 9 people for a rally recently- they are insignificant.
More interesting to me is why the actual videos weren't covered by say the BBC without any other involvement. If the behaviour depicted is not typical that could easily be corrected with video of Muslims helping the disabled or supporting gay pride marches.
If it is typical we are being lied to.

Pat, thanks. Videos...people are getting in all sorts of trouble over videos in the last several years it seems.

Don't David, read so much into it as Bob has.

Whitewall, Trump upset the leftie liberal mob who let Islamic terrorists onto our shores. We are supposed to take it and not complain when our people are slaughtered. We live in strange times. Perhaps it was a waste of time being born. I note Israel is still fighting on all fronts.

Jimmy, we do live in strange times where tectonic plates are shifting all over the world. Odd people are at the helm of several countries around the world and no one is more odd than Trump who did just what you say. Still, sometimes there is just no reason to do some of what he does.

I hope you watched the video link above as it is quite funny!

Max Hastings is quite right about the so-called special relationship.

i beg to differ that May had to express an opinion on Trumps retweet. She could kept her trap shut?

Or she could have used some diplomatic boiler plate such as friends sometimes have different opinions.

I can und rstand some Americans being a bit embarassed about Trump. But I'm afraid I'm rather embarassed by T May and her bunch.

One last thing, obama may have been civil enough to Cameron, and sucked up to the queen, the preeminent statesman in the world. But he never made any attempt to hide his contempt of the UK.

Sent back the bust of Churchill as I recall reading somewhere. Not very polite.

Pat,

"Mr. Farage is a member and was the leader of UKIP, which does not accept ex members of Britain First, or various others as members".

Lipstick on a pig argument that, and smudged lipstick too.

Farage himself welcomed ex-BNP supporters. A third of BNP supporters decamped to Ukip, and that made Nigel Farage feel "proud" ...

Ukip might reject card carrying fascists - although not all of Ukip, this leadership candidate was happy enough to take them in ...

Ffs Kippers, wipe of the smudged lipstick, it's toe-curlingly embarrassing, we know who you are!

"we know who you are!"

No you don't, SoD!

Loz, The Labour Party welcome all sorts of lefties nowadays. And the left traditionally have a murderous record on stifling democracy and locking people up for various reasons.
It is not surprising the united left and their media went on a frenzie over a 6 months old tweet. It is becoming labourious listening to the daily attacks on Trump. I am now warming to the man..

One of many reasons O'boy was so utterly despised in much of America was his rudeness to Britain,that CD of his speeches to HMQ was just about the last straw. It was widely repeated that the reason he hated the British was that they had interfered with the African slave trade, which had so greatly enriched his farther's Kenyan tribe.True or not, it made sense.

President Trump, in reaching out to an out-of-favor British faction, was rather artless, but most definitely NOT intentionally snubbing Britain,

"President Trump, in reaching out to an out-of-favor British faction, was rather artless, but most definitely NOT intentionally snubbing Britain,"

An out-of-favor British faction?

Is that what they call it now, after all these years?
