      School shooting in America. Again. At least 17 dead.

      I'm assuming Trump has already tweeted something along the lines of this?

      Just watching some of the coverage on the news, very interesting listening to some of the ex-fbi people on the panel talking about how they are all for the 2nd amendment but there need to be changes in the law that stops the likes of the AR-15 being sold to the public as they are not hunting rifles.

      F***ing idiot.
      There's only one person to blame for the massacres - Trump.
      The fraud is in bed with the NRA and refuses to contemplate any legislation that could impact the arms industry in the US.
      The f**king fraud stands there and gushes platitudes to the bereaved familiar once again, they are as much use as the worthless words previously spoken as he does absolutely nothing to stem America's death wish.

      That he actually cares enough to try and change things. Thoughts and prayers sound really hollow coming from someone that is in the pockets of the NRA and actively campaigns against any reform of the gun laws.

      Funny you mention it SM. He tweets based on his agenda. If it was a Muslim shooter he would use this to push immigration/travel ban card “we should have more immigration bans” etc... etc... if it was Hispanic then his tweet would be “that’s why we want to build a wall to stop illegals”, but when the shooter does not suit his agenda he’s like “thoughts and prayers, he’s mentally ill” bullcr@p, instead of addressing the problem of allowing 19 year olds carrying f*cking assault rifles in public.

      As little as possible.
      Actions speak louder than words and cutting all ties with the NRA would make people think the f**king idiot had suffered a brain storm. the next step is banning automatic weapons - weaponry designed purely to take out as many people as possible in the shortest possible time.

      Eventually bring the US in line with the developed world and ban lethal weaponry full stop.
      America is only matched by Argentina for gun deaths but is way, way behind the rest of the civilised world.


      Trump's reference to mental instability does seem a little close to home.

      Post-Brexit UK won't be like Mad Max, says David Davis

      Britain will not be "plunged into a Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction" after it leaves the EU, the Brexit secretary has said.

      David Davis said the UK wanted to lead a "global race to the top" in rights and standards not, as some feared, a "competitive race to the bottom".

      British business could "never be cheaper than China" and must focus instead on product and service quality.

      He also suggested a Brexit deal by the end of 2018 was "well on the cards".

      The Brexit secretary's address to Austrian business leaders in Vienna is the latest in a series of speeches the UK government is calling "the road to Brexit" as it faces demands to spell out details of the future partnership it wants with the EU.

      The UK says it wants to avoid obstacles to smooth trade with the EU although it is leaving the single market and the customs union when Brexit happens in March 2019.

      Mr Davis said this can be achieved if both sides recognise each other's standards and regulations, promising the UK will "continue our track record of meeting high standards" once outside the EU.

      The government has previously spoken of adopting a "new economic model" to stay competitive if it is locked out of the EU single market after Brexit, and Labour has claimed the UK could be turned into a "low-wage, offshore tax haven".

      Mr Davis hit back at the government's critics in his speech, invoking the Mad Max series of action films which portray societal collapse in a lawless future world.

      "They fear that Brexit could lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom," Mr Davis said.

      "With Britain plunged into a Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction. These fears about a race to the bottom are based on nothing, not our history, not our intentions, not our national interest.

      "But while I profoundly disagree with those who spread these fears — it does remind us all that we must provide reassurance."

      The UK, he said, would never prosper in a new era of intensified globalisation by cutting standards since it "would never be cheaper than China or have more resources than Brazil".

      He said UK's post-Brexit economic relationship with the EU should be based on the principles of "open trade and fair competition".

      As part of this, once the UK has left, it would not allow firms heavily subsidised by EU governments "unfettered access" to its markets nor permit mergers between UK and EU firms which reduced consumer choice.

      "A crucial part of any such agreement is the ability for both sides to trust each other's regulations and the institutions that enforce them," he added.

      "Such mutual recognition will naturally require close, even-handed co-operation between these authorities and a common set of principles to guide them."

      Last year EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said it was "simply impossible" for the UK to adopt its own standards and regulations while also having them recognised automatically in the EU.

      Labour said past comments by some senior ministers showed they wanted to use Brexit as a vehicle to "drive down" environmental standards and employment rights when, instead, they should be extended.

      "David Davis's promise... isn't worth the paper it's written on," said shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer.

      The general secretary of the GMB union, Tim Roache, said: ""If the best this Government can do is promise Britain will not turn into a 'Mad Max' nightmare - it's no wonder people are worried about their post-Brexit lives."

      The Institute of Directors' Allie Renison said they were "pleased that Davis acknowledges the importance of keeping a level playing field on state aid and competition policy. Minimising trade barriers can and should go hand in hand with a future deal with the EU".

      From promising us 350m a week for the NHS to promising us that Brexit Britain 'won't be like Mad Max'. Can't help but feel these Brexiteers are tempering expectations. Regardless, even if it did fall to Mad Max levels they'll blame the 'Bremoaners' for the squalid state of affairs because these cu*ts don't know any other argument.

      Still - we can look forward to a deregulated economy outside the EU where we will relive the 80s horrors of Zebrugge, Hillsborough, Bradford City fire and Piper Alpha.

      Yeah one thing will lead to another and then we're in a vicious cycle. Provide awful health and safety standards and you'll provide awful working conditions which will no doubt lead to them getting underpaid and exploited. Take it to the ECHR? Forget it - we'll be out of that too if the hard right gets its way.

      Just remember this from possibly (probably?) the next Tory leader when May inevitably gets the chop.
