Humans are extremely wary of the obviously inauthentic.

Donald Trump, being a narcissistic sociopath, is another whole level where he believes and means the nonsense he says, when he says it - and two days later he sincerely believes and means something different which can be completely contradictory. And to him, they're both true - just not in reality.

Michael Bloomberg said, "I know a con when I see one" which captures the truth of Trump. Because good con men sincerely believe their own lies when they're telling them, just like Boris Johnson does.

To me Donald Trump was and is the same narcissistic new-money buffoon he was in 'Spy' magazine in the 1980s. For others he was the Donald Trump character he played on "The Apprentice" which has little to do with who is he - the character on theTV show was who Donald Trump wished he was.

Given the chance, I'll be voting for Michael Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York.

Bloomberg has always said what he means and, not only means what he says but also, has a reasonable plan to get there before he bothers saying it.

Bloomberg goads Trump with another line, "The difference between us is, I've actually made a billion Dollars."

Michael decided not to run last time, saying "I can count delegate votes and Hillary already has too many delegates pledged in advance to make a run viable. But I'm not convinced she's electable."

Boris Johnson meets the people:

Glastonbury: Visit cancelled because of protesters

Follows:

Stainforth: ‘I don’t want to meet you.'

Leeds: ‘Leave my town’

Doncaster: ‘You’ve a cheek. People have died because of austerity’

Rotherham: ‘Get back to London'

-Not going well

Prince Andrew reveals the danger created when people like himself or Donald Trump surround themselves with sycophants.

It so completely unmoors them from reality and that they simply saying something stupid makes it so, and people everywhere will believe you.

Telling easily contestable lies and attributing false motives to their actions that no other human would find believable.

It's like Jeremy Crobyn's few supporters who honestly believed UK voters were going to be eager to vote for an elitist Stalinist to become PM. On what planet did that sound like reality?

How about a business level planet?

Now don't tell me about some silly notion that we have a entrepreneurial free market. We... in the West... have the most soviet style central planned economy imaginable. Not only that, it is an economy based predominantly on advanced weapons to destroy the human race in the most inhumane methods possible. And then we have the list of monopolies run by either criminals or ones that are in cahoots with government officials at a large number of levels.

And what can some mild, middle of the road, socialist prime minister do to get the nations economy moving again? Once again please spare me the statistical bs. We already know about the statistics.

How about trains ... for example ?

21st Century Rail

It's time to bring Britain's railways into the 21st century.

Yes, yes, yes, and the UK voter appeal of your screed is nearly zero - and that's the essential problem.

There's certainly a role for a Party of eccentrics who 'message' with no hope or expectation of ever running the government. It's funny, partly educational, but in the end, not relevant.
