I've see they've dialed up the insults and nastiness to 11. Reminds me of watching a narcissist desperately trying to save face after being publicly rejected.

I haven't seen an Ann Coulter or Trump response.  But I'm sure they'd be reasoned, articulated responses with no sarcasm or humor intended.

In the video, he says "Nigel Farange spends hours trying to insert his penis into his own asshole" and "David Cameron tried to fuck a dead pig's mouth."

I'm not sure if you'd say those statements were unreasonable, inarticulate, sarcastic, or humorous... but I think it's unreasonable to say we could expect anything of the sort from Trump, Coulter, or anyone else, for that matter.

Unreasonable: no

Inarticulate: no

sarcastic: yes, no.. maybe

humorous: yes

Well, the last conservative Vice President did tell someone to go fuck themselves in the Senate Chamber.  The pig fornication thing does have some legs.

Trump's said enough unreasonable, inarticulate, non-sarcastic and funny/not-funny stuff he's in his own little world.

The parrot-faced former-Brit a political satirist, so is Ann.  She's also used that dirty f-word from time to time, but she puts in the "--" so I guess that shouldn't really count?  She's also funny.  

But, I grew up watching this, perhaps my sense of humor's a little skewed -

This is going to end in war.  I hope we pick the correct side...

No it isn't.  The EU will make a show of telling off the UK, realize that 17% of Europe's economy walking out the door is a bad thing and then invite them to take a deal similar to Norway's.  The UK will then gladly accept that deal.

What do you mean?  Europe has never had a problem with right-wing nationalism before.

The elements in the EU attempting to make this painful are cutting off their nose to spite their face. The attempt is transparent enough to see the whole point is the longer England deals with fallout painfully the more examples for pro-EU elements in countries like Denmark or France to use to hold by the trend of leaving.

This isn't Latvia or some other tiny country amongst a list of countries that left, it's the 5th largest economy in the world and the 1st/2nd economy in Europe for 90% of the things you would want to export (tech/cars/etc). European politicians in Brussels seem to have forgotten they aren't the only Buffet table for the Brits to fill their plate at.

If I was a business/industry CEO from an EU country I'd be making phone calls to the politicians of my country to remind them of that.... If I was same from outside the EU I'd be throwing everything I could at trying to pick up the market slack that things like punishment tariffs are going to cause.

Well I couldn’t think of the exact word at the time of posting. Maybe not “honestly”. Maybe genuine? Or at least less PC? I find it interesting that they have some real heated debates compared to our measured, back stabbing political games. Yeah I’m sure “honestly” wasn’t the right word, but I think you can see my point.

Still better than the theatric spectacles our Congress is used for at times, like having Comey testify or the Kavanaugh hearings. I think at least the house of Commons functions pretty well as parliament is concerned but there are some serious concerns with the house of Lord's.

Gotta hand it to British Tabloids, they often have an excellent sense of humor.

I see the point of his allegory...except that for the long history of Britain, it’s known more for fish than chicken. This chicken thing is the new item on the menu.
