    And you can't see the hypocrisy in losing your head when Trump says something regarding us but it is OK for Clinton to pipe up with her bile ?

    I haven't done either, nor have I seen anyone do either. However, I could understand the difference in reaction, given one is the President of the US and the other holds no position of power whatsoever.

    Both of these are just poor deflection from the crux of that article. Russian interference in UK voting is something to concern yourself with, regardless of how you voted or who highlights it.

    With regards to Trump voicing his opinion on it, he was always going to and I saw no uproar, just other opinions, so stop talking shite.

    False. You are just making things up. Separating the UK from Europe is a current Russian geopolitical strategy.

    Where have you got that from? That just isn't true, and I've not seen anyone even try and suggest that. There's been calls for the report to be released throughout the political spectrum, both within the UK and globally.

    Pretty much everything he posts is a fairytale in his own head ;)

    He's as reliable with the truth as Boris Johnson

    There's a clear difference between the two. On one hand you have a sitting President criticising the leader of the opposition, whilst endorsing Johnson and Farage, and even advising them on strategy. The other example is a politician speaking out because our government is holding back on a report on Russian interference in our democratic process until after the general election, whilst at the same time accepting donations from dubious Russians, and the Americans also think Johnson may himself have been compromised by the Russian state. If the BBC had done it's job and held the government to account on this, I would have been in agreement with you, but it isn't doing that, so as a nation we should welcome an ally trying to expose something that could be most significant national security threat since the cold war if there is any truth behind Johnson's personal links.

    He shouldn't have intervened in the Brexit campaign. His Democrats and the Cameron Tories were pretty similar on the political spectrum and I think he wanted to help his mate. Still wrong though.

    Literally everything he posts regarding Brexit is false, and the links he provides have nothing to do with his "Facts".

    Saying a report on Russian interference in the UK should be released =/= Telling people to back certain candidates in an election (especially when one of those bemoaned Obama for doing for same previously).

    Pretty interesting video by an actual Vote Leave staffer who turned to a Remainer.

    I’m sure there was plenty of propaganda and similar tactics used in the US. What I would say is what difference did it really make? It is a worry, but I don’t think it affected the outcome nearly as much as the migrant crisis, the terror attacks in Europe or the EU telling Dave to do one when he came cap in hand. All of those had a far bigger impact on the referendum

    it’s interesting to actually see a real leave voter change to remain. We here about them all the time, mainly from remain leaning politicians, but rarely see one in the flesh!

    Watch 'The Great Hack' and come back and tell me if you still think the same way. It had quite a significant affect, from what I've seen and read.
