Title: Influence
Post by Michael on Oct 21st, 2016 at 1:03pm
In the recent TV debate from America 'The Hilary' said, referring to suspected Russian involvement in leaking her e-mails to 'The Donald', that foreigners should not influence another country's elections.  So what was Mr Barak Obama doing when he said Britain would be at the back of the queue for trade deals in the 'Brexit' vote???   :o

Did he really say that ? I would have thought He would have used the word " Line" On the BBC programme Any Questions Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, and vehement supporter of Britain voting to leave the EU, said he thought it inconceivable that an American such as Barack Obama would use the word "queue". Americans, he asserted, say "line". So according to Farage, it was not Obama speaking, but, in effect the UK government had written his script for him. but it would certainly be more than reasonable for Obama to use the British-preferred word when discussing British matters, especially if he was 'aiming' it at a British audience.Anyway who cares he will be too busy flogging books after November.  ;D ;D ;D

It's in quotation marks in the Daily Mail so it must be true!   ;D
