    What is this incessant need for people on the internet these days to post multi-minute videos, when a piece of text is

    - quicker to load
    - is quicker to skim/read
    - uses less bandwidth
    - is amenable to summaries if it is long.

    -o I am humble -o You are attention seeking -o She is Nadine Dorries

    When you publish the article (in print), Martin, I'll read it. I certainly don't intend to access it otherwise.

    It seems your interest is to publicise yourself more than your opinion.

    As well as the excessive self publicising I'm surprised he hasn't had the opportunity to appear in a dress, normally any excuse for that.

    I watched 10 seconds even though I'm not digitally transformed.

    Nice tea cosy.

    Trump's victory means that my wife's family are less likely to receive another nuke detonated over their region of Russia.

    Hillary is on record in the campaign saying that she would happily go to war with Russia - bad move, they have antimatter weapons, and who knows what the VEKTOR lab in Siberia's got? Now privately owned, it used to be part of the Biopreparat in the USSR days.

    I'm not sure I believe in antimatter weapons, but bad old nukes are quite bad enough. Not to mention the little fact that the US armed forces were defeated in Vietnam, and have been unable to defeat IS in Iraq and other countries in the region, so would have no chance at all against the Red Army that defeated Hitler.
