    Now I’m picturing 7,000 midgets in Lucha Libre masks marching across Mexico. Thanks for that, Tim.

  2. in the text….
    “Here’s what you need to know about the latest, and largest, migrant caravan.”

    It’s bad enough in the title but to repeat this bumfluff in the copy, where i’m expecting facts, context, explanation and maybe comment takes it beyond bad to unreadable.

  3. More migrants “fleeing terrible hardship and oppression” in their own country. Passing through other countries where there isn’t terrible hardship or oppression on their way to a really rich country where there also isn’t terrible hardship or oppression.

  4. Reminds me of the time, while suffering a migraine, I experienced an auto-correct fail and texted work – “Sorry, am in bed with a migrant”.

  5. Passing through other countries where there isn’t terrible hardship or oppression on their way to a really rich country where there also isn’t terrible hardship or oppression.

    As someone pointed out on Twitter, a refugee these days is basically someone who doesn’t have residency in the west and an asylum seeker is someone seeking asylum from not being in America.

  6. Strange how this is occurring now, isn’t it? What with being the run-up to the mid-terms. One might almost suspect there was someone down in Central America doing a little organising.
    Question would be;who? It probably plays better for the red interest. But there’s enough Dems, live entirely inside their own bubbles, would think it would score for them.

    It’s the media playing it up, not the actual happening, that is being organised.
    A week or two ago the Beeb had a big splash about Excuador closing a bridge from Colombia to stop the flow of Venezuelans fleeing the famine in their own country ‘cos Ecuador cannot cope with that big an influx. Nothing about *why* they were fleeing the famine

  8. Off topic, but readers of this morning’s Tel were presented with a big hint as to the identity of the Prominent Businessman sex pest. If I’m right, he is indeed a “Sir”.

  9. Like the fact that Trump cutting aid, after all if they aren’t going to stay in the place you are sending aid to what’s the aid for, running that past a leftie friend caused a near meltdown and a series of but…but…but

  10. Given 2 of the 5 accusers/claimants supported the injunction then isn’t this very disrespectful to the victims to go throwing names around.
    I’m assuming any women with working with/near him on their resume and looking for a job is going to be pissed as people will wonder if they are involved, so really this is just hurting women and going against their wishes, though the sisterhood and lefties have never been particular about collateral damage and more than willing to throw people under the bus

  11. Also off topic but with all those pipe bombs, surely even a lying cheating evil uncouth ugly racist fat bastard like Trump must realise that there are consequences to name calling.(c) the left wing media.

  12. It’s interesting that a bus helped the Brexit referendum, now a caravan should help Trump in the mid-terms. It all sounds so 1950s

  13. Ljh: you sound like an unidentifiable marine creature that’s been dead for a while and has been washed up on a beach, bloated and covered in slime, where it’s then heavily trodden on accidentally by a fat man wearing loose fitting Wellington boots.

    What’s your point?

  14. AndrewC, the name calling started from the left. The Democrats have also been the most vocal and violent. Look at Democrats like Maxine Waters & H Clinton and tell me that you agree that there are consequences to their inflammatory speeches.

  15. perhaps I have been hanging around on sites like this too long and have become deeply cynical, but haven’t those mail bombs come at an incredibly convenient time for the Dems and the MSM to use them to attack Trump? NB, I believe that the Jo Cox murder was a genuine nutter tragedy but the cynical speed with which it was weaponised by the establishment to (almost) sabotage the Brexit vote will not have been lost on the snake pit that is Washington.

    What’s your point?

    (Try to conceive specific insults that fit the target intimately instead of generic insults that could just as easily be turned back on you. That’s the difference between wit and name-calling.)
