Donald Trump threatens to cut aid to countries over UN Jerusalem vote

General assembly to vote on rejecting US recognition of city as Israeli capital
Trump: ‘We’re not going to be taken advantage of any longer’

Donald Trump has threatened to withhold “billions” of dollars of US aid from countries which vote to condemn the US president’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
US will 'take names of those who vote to reject Jerusalem recognition'

His comments came after the US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley warned member states that she will be “taking names” of countries that vote for a general assembly resolution on Thursday critical of the announcement which overturned decades of US foreign policy. (Guardian)

Today I was mostly helping to cook christmas dinner for 120 (We take it at turns at school to cook for the whole staff. I was responsible for this lovely thing which I thoroughly recommend even if you recoil from vegetarian things.

Maybe it was meant in the same way as “I have almost 60 detailed impact assessments”.

Yes - but he did later hedge it around with all sorts of conditions and caveats

Being asked to resign isn't a resignation but a sacking.

I saw a clip of PMQs, no Green but David Davis appeared to be fast asleep. Aren't they all lovely.

Although it could be quite artful...

"You do Prime Minister"
"Right. So if I ask you to resign then I look stronger than if you simply go. Let's do that"

When my Mum found my porn stash I just brazened it out, pretended not to be in the slightest bit embarrassed even though I was mortified and it worked. Unfortunately it did mean some classic porn got thrown in the bin, half my stash was from a bin bag I found in some local woods full of mags from the mid Seventies, probably worth a small fortune now.

I've still got some black and white hardcore stuff from the Fifties that a friend and I liberated from his Dad's loft. Beehive hairstyles on naked women look quite bizarre.

Anyway my point is there's no point in lying about shit like this. Do I think Damien Green was watching porn at work? Yes I do. You don't get thousands of thumbnail porn images in your cache while browsing Hansard. Is it a sackable offence? That depends on the terms and conditions of his contract, but as he is a civil servant I'm assuming yes it probably is. Should it be a sackable offence? Not in my opinion no. As long as someone gets their work done they can amuse themselves in whatever way they choose as long as it doesn't bother anyone else. So should he have come clean and brazened it out right at the start? Undoubtedly yes, he may have had a slap on the wrist and we would have undoubtedly roundly mocked him but that was nine years ago. Just look at where Liam Fox is now who did a lot worse. For the Tories time heals all imaginable wounds.

Sometimes it's better to take it on the chin, then let it dribble down and hang delicately in strands before wiping it off with toilet paper.

Just to test the theory, I've just googled (images) "Hansard", 36 pages & nothing remotely dodgy.
coincidentally, as a teenager I didn't have any 'adult' magazines, but did have a copy of Hansard (though not well leafed)

Yes but you're a girl.

Finding porn in the woods during the Eighties was like we men going out hunting and catching an antelope.

Then hiding the antelope under our mattress and finding it sexually tantalising.
