I’ve been wondering how the G7 conference in Canada went. Occasionally pictures speak louder than words:
You can almost feel the pressure being exerted on Trump (1) by Merkel (6), Macron (7), and May (8). Trump’s folded arms, and Bolton’s (2) crossed hands, and Abe’s folded arms, all indicated determined resistance as the EU leaders press forward, led by Merkel. Larry Kudlow (9) looks like he’s trying to stop the table being pushed forward.
It’s the collective versus the individual. Trump isn’t speaking – Bolton is. And he’s speaking to Macron. Another photo:
The BBC reported that Trump was “isolated”. But I think that it’s EU politicians like Merkel and Macron and May who are becoming isolated. I think they’re all going to be swept away soon.
Whose side is Theresa May on? Look at the photo. She’s standing with Macron and Merkel, leaning forward with them. She’s on their side of the table. So she’s on their side.
The Prime Minister’s approval ratings have plummeted by nearly 17 points in just weeks among Tory Party members, as she stalls on delivering a clean Brexit.
According to James Delingpole, Trump’s getting tired of her:
Dear President Trump,
It is being reported in the UK media that you have grown tired of Prime Minister Theresa May’s “school mistress” tone.
Join the club, Mister President. You only have to put up with her briefly, at events like today’s G7 in Quebec. In Britain we have to endure her pretty much 24/7 and she’s a national embarrassment.
In other news, Breitbart reports that Dutch politician Geert Wilders addressed massive crowds in London, and called for Tommy Robinson to be freed.
So I guess it never happened. Or the BBC had more important things to report on, like Celebrity Come Dancing or something.
I didn’t look, but the BBC probably didn’t mention this either:
Anti-elite Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford has won a landslide victory against the Canadian political establishment beating back the former ruling Liberal Party which have been reduced to so few seats they have lost official party status.
Ford and the Progressive Conservatives (PC) won a total of 76 out of 124 seats in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Thursday forming the first PC majority government in the province since 2003.
The former ruling Liberal Party under leader Kathleen Wynne, a staunch ally of federal Liberal party leader and current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, saw a catastrophic collapse at the polls going from 55 out of 101 seats to a mere seven seats which disqualifies them for official party status in the assembly.
