Looks like he's been told to keep the really juicy stuff out of the public gaze "in the national interest" so presumably trump will get away with it. 

How he can say that he can't tell the enquiry is beyond me.

Because, at this level, there really are things that shouldn't be in the public domain. 
Unfortunately, Trump seems to think his role as POTUS puts him above not only the law, but common sense, and acceptable behavior. It won't be too long before he's impeached, unless he starts to behave like a politician, and not an untouchable company director.

I'd settle for him behaving like he's,at the very least,on nodding terms with sanity.

Someone on US TV described him as 'a horse loose in a hospital',which is pretty fair comment. Very Happy

I agree that national security is a primary concern but if it turns out that the election was rigged by the Russians or that classified info was leaked to them then trump shouldn't be Potus anyway and the American people have the right to know.

Corruption at the highest level "trumps" national security imo.

Have to say that the attorney general  recusing himself without any legal basis re the comey sacking is phenomenal tv.

It'll be interesting to see if another key witness, (bugger, forgotten his name), will be sacked by Trump. 
Its all becoming farcical, and sooner or later, he will fall flat on his face, and deservedly so.

Both Trump and May have vital, big chunks missing from their hearts. Corbyn and the Queen giving May a lesson in humanity.

May has had to cough up £1 BILLION extra funding for Northern Ireland to buy the DUP vote.

Simultaneously the Supreme Court has partially lifted the injunction against Donald Trump re the travel ban so it looks like some of his proposal to stop people arriving from 6 countries - if they don't have a bona fide relationship with an American - will go into effect.

Trump is allegedly making the wall between the USA and Mexico out of solar panels so that the heat generated will benefit Mexico's economy.  :facepalm:

Yesterday, the French press were revelling in Britain's demise as they anticipate further weakening the British economy as they did in the last main EU negotiations when they handed Thatcher her ass. Publicly of course their Government is talking a fair fight, but we all know that we are in big, big trouble especially as the French economy has overtaken the British economy since the Tories took power. Add to that this week's figures which showed Britain has by far the lowest growth of all G7 nations as the Government continue to drag us back.

Predictably, the U-turns continue with David Davies expressing his concern over May's inflexibility tying his hands in what he can negotiate with and what concessions he can make. 

Question is why is the key British negotiator, who has been told exactly what we want and exactly what (the Tories say) is on the table is seeking to broaden the scope of the negotiations?

Answer: It's bleedin' obvious.

Its unfortunate that at a time when we should be trying to pull together as a nation, we are still playing party politics. May is behaving like a rabbit in the headlights, without attempting, (or knowing how), to move out of the way, whilst Corbyn is still fighting with his own MP's, and actively encouraging his party to move even further to the left. If it all goes tits up, I think all the politicians involved need a bloody good kicking, both literally, and politically.

I agree with your summary but what worries me is where we are headed. Although I am pleased to see May exposed as hopelessly out of her depth everything I hear about the brexit negotiations just confirms my fears about how we us a country are going to be totally screwed.

At the moment both major parties are led by people who pretended to support remain but now May has opted for a hard brexit for reasons unknown and Corbyn never liked the EU anyway. It is going to get a lot worse.

The Republican Senate has voted against Trump in his efforts to repeal Obamacare.
Three senior Republicans including John Cain rebelled to defeat Trump's Bill by 51 to 49 when Trump only needed a straight majority to win.

Despite having a considerable Republican majority, Trump is having even less success than Obama getting laws passed by the Senate. Says a lot when you aren't backed by your own party.
