    It is an interesting exercise to watch the competing coverage of Trump from CNN and the like and the likes of Fox news. You could be forgiven for thinking that they had been to completely different events.

    Our news in NZ appears to be all taken from the CNN side of things. If Trump walked on water the headlines would read "Trump cannot swim"

    I truly hope that he does try to walk on water so that we can get back to some sense of normality. Have you seen the cost of and the separation of the Secret Service staff just trying to look after the family - positively disgusting!

    A wonderful allegorical observation, BBCmicro

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Oh Bevy darling, you really mustnít get your titties in a tangle over such things.

    Looking at the comments on You Tube a lot more applaud the clip than criticise it.

    One American Lady goes so far as to say she will go and live in Australia because a least Australians have got a Spine.

    And something I do like about Australians is that nobody gets to die wondering what the others thought of them.

    It is niether racist nor crap. It is however amusing. Islam is a religion not a race and if you want to go to someone else's house/country you fit in with them not the other way around.

    Absolutely right on all counts Clive.

    The whole thing is the truth, but the bit I liked the best was “It’s OUR rules OUR back yard”.

    I don’t know how many times I’ve had to explain the old adage “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”, so now I’ll settle for “It’s OUR rules OUR back yard.

    The trouble with the "Politically Correct Brigade" is they believe that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    However....there is always an however, however... those views only apply when you are Anglo Saxon in an Anglo Saxon controlled country, they don't (or didn't) apply when Anglo Saxons go to live in someone elses country, eg the British in India, or the British arriving in Australia or New Zealand.
