Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Excuse me, but why do we have to pay ANYTHING when a billionaire Orange Moron visits?

I hadn’t planned on paying any attention to the Orange Moron’s visit, but I found I had to at least mention the cost… TO US!

Why does the host country have to pick up the tab?

Same fiddle for the Commonwealth Games, and the Olympics pull the same ‘privilege’ scam on the host too.

Donald Trump’s three-day state visit next week is likely to be the costliest ever diplomatic trip for the British taxpayer, Scotland Yard has suggested.

The US president’s working trip last year drained around £18m from the public purse as 10,000 officers were deployed to help with security and policing, the largest police mobilisation since the London 2011 riots. The US embassy said that in addition to security and staff for himself and his family, Mr Trump will be joined by the presidential car, nicknamed “the Beast”, as well as the official helicopter, Marine One.

Given the upgraded status of this visit, security is expected to be even tighter. Safety concerns have already led to cancellation of a gilded carriage ride, typical for a state visit to Buckingham Palace.

The Stop Trump Coalition is promising to follow the President wherever he goes – starting at Buckingham Palace on Monday when the President is due to meet the Queen for a private lunch. Last year an estimated 250,000 people marched in London and another 150,000 joined protests around the UK against the President’s visit. Similar numbers are expected to join forces again next week.

Officials will also be keen to avoid another embarrassing incident following the one that occurred after what happened when Mr Trump paid a visit to Scotland last July.

In Ayrshire, a man was charged by police for an alleged breach of a no-fly zone after a microlight dragging a banner reading “Trump well below par” flew within metres of the President during his time at Turnberry golf course. Regional demonstrations across the UK are also planned, including in Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Belfast.

A spokeswoman for the Met Police told i: “This will be a multi-agency policing operation with a very experienced command team in place. We are currently looking at resource allocation and it is too early to speculate about the cost of the policing and security operation at this stage, but it will be significant.”

Donald Trump UK state visit: three-day stay likely to be costliest ever diplomatic trip for British taxpayers, Scotland Yard suggests

At least he’s not coming to Scotland, but as UK taxpayers, he’ll still be dipping into Scottish purses.

On a positive note, at least he doesn’t seem to have much luck with the ladies.

This is the second pic I’ve come across of him after one chopped his head off.

First time was by a comedienne, now the “Rosenmontag” carnival parade in Düsseldorf, which apparently always has some rather political and provocative carnival dares.

BBC delivers real licence fee value

Some say, there are people who complain about the BBC television licence fee.

I think anyone who complains should be given a framed copy of this, and sent away to reconsider what they consider to be real value for money!

Just look at that – the BBC managed to arrange a personal visit to their studios by the REAL Donald Trump 🙂

If that alone isn’t worth the licence fee, I don’t know what is.

Maybe video of someone chasing him with a pin?

Guess I’m not going to get into the US

While I’m not likely to try to go there, or have ever even been there, it looks as if I’d better not even think about visiting the US.

Now that it’s become ever more like ‘Orange Moron Land’, it seems as if he of the single brain cell (or less) has come up with a new idea to make himself popular, with some.

Nearly all applicants for US visas will have to submit their social media details under newly adopted rules.

The State Department regulations say people will have to submit social media names and five years’ worth of email addresses and phone numbers.

When proposed last year, authorities estimated the proposal would affect 14.7 million people annually.

Certain diplomatic and official visa applicants will be exempt from the stringent new measures.

However, people travelling to the US to work or to study will have to hand over their information.

US demands social media details from visa applicants

I’m actually impressed by the idea that people will be able to provide the five years’ worth of detailed being demanded, given most seem to be unable to manage to remember decent passwords, or even change them.

I wonder how many will provide genuine addresses and numbers, and how many will just be made up to fill in the forms.

Could be fun if the State Department actually checks them – lots of people could be refused visas, or end up in US jails if their stuff doesn’t check out.

Poke in the eye for Trump – Scottish government wins wind power legal costs

Nice one. Guess he didn’t ‘buy’ the judges.

Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf resort must pay the Scottish government’s legal costs following a court battle over a major North Sea wind power development.

Mr Trump battled unsuccessfully in the courts to halt the project before he became US president.

Judges have now ruled Trump International Golf Club Scotland Ltd should pay the legal bills incurred.

Mr Trump had argued the development would spoil the view from his golf course at Menie.

The sum involved has not been disclosed.

If only the orange moron would…

Found a ‘Trump Wall’ people would happily pay for

Best Trump Wall ever!

Best Trump Wall

The comments after this were great.

Two were notable.

One that suggested it needed a lid.

Then a later one suggested the best lid would be a Toilet Seat!

She didn’t really have to pretend.

The Orange Moron barely manages English anyway.

FINALLY! Electric vehicles are assured of success

It’s been a while in coming, but at last we have positive confirmation that electric vehicles will be a complete success.

President Tiny Brain himself, Donald Trump, confirmed this today when he announced:

Electric cars “not going to work”

Actually nothing to do with science, engineering, or anything relevant – the moron just wants to punish GM for not playing according to what HE says.

When GM made the announcement in the end of November, Trump vowed retaliation against the company, and he reiterated that stance last week. “I don’t like what she did,” Trump told Fox News, referring to Barra. “It was nasty. To tell me a couple of weeks before Christmas that she’s going to close in Ohio and Michigan, not acceptable to me. General Motors is not going to be treated well.”

Via Electric cars “not going to work,” Trump says of GM’s plan

Then again, he’s not a fan of electricity.

He’s more into pollution, with his ‘clean coal’ and ‘dirty mouth’.

Trump supporters

After the preceding ‘adult’ post, I thought I should make this one.

Apparently Trump supporters say promoting this sort of thing is ‘Childish’.

Thanks folks 🙂

Today’s word is… pariah

Since today does not seem to have a relevant ‘Today is…’ subject, I thought I’d use the space for a sort of ‘Word of the Day’ post.

I rather liked this article which brought the word ‘pariah‘ into its headline, AND managed to pair it with the name ‘Donald Trump‘,

An excellent combination, as the Cambridge dictionary defines a pariah as:

a person who is avoided or not accepted by a social group, esp. because he or she is not liked, respected, or trusted; an outcast:

Seems pretty good to me 🙂

Donald Trump dubbed ‘pariah’ as firm is criticised over plans for Menie estate

Yup, looks good too.

Today’s word is… pariah.

Complete this sequence: Moron, Imbecile, Idiot… ?


It is. Really, it is.

The words moron, imbecile, and idiot actually mean different things.

In psychology, an idiot has the least intelligence on the IQ scale (this now is equivalent to someone who is mentally retarded or the more politically correct “mentally challenged”); an imbecile is not quite as dumb as an idiot and is now considered equivalent to moderate retardation; a moron is then the highest level of intelligence for someone who is mentally retarded, thus considered as being mildly mentally retarded.  Specifically, those who have an IQ between 0 and 25 are idiots; IQs between 26 and 50 are considered imbeciles; and those who have an IQ between 51 and 70 are considered morons.

Since Trump’s IQ is less than 0, it follows that ‘Trump’ completes the sequence Moron, Imbecile, Idiot… ?


Embarrassing to think I’ve been wrong for so long, referring to Trump as ‘The Orange Moron’.

But ‘moron’ just sounds so much better than ‘idiot’ when associated with ‘Trump’.

On the other hand, he REALLY is an idiot.

US President Donald Trump has cast doubt on a report by his own government warning of devastating effects from climate change.

Asked outside the White House about the findings that unchecked global warming would wreak havoc on the US economy, he said: “I don’t believe it.”

The report found that climate change will cost the US hundreds of billions of dollars annually and damage health.

The Trump administration has pursued a pro-fossil fuels agenda.

The world’s leading scientists agree that climate change is human-induced and warn that natural fluctuations in temperature are being exacerbated by human activity.

Michael Moore on Donald Trump – Fahrenheit 11/9

Film-make Michael Moore can be an acquired taste, but then again, he’s not afraid to make points that others shy from, and he’s an Oscar winner, so he must be doing something right.

The first trailer for Michael Moore’s Donald Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 has been released, promising an incendiary look at modern life in America.

The Oscar-winning film-maker has been focusing on the effect of the president in an attempt to shift public perception before November. “I’m finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls,” he said to Bill Maher in June. “We’re going to bring Trump down.”

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to the Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Bowling for Columbine director is also seen spraying “Flint water” into the front yard of Rick Snyder, the governor of Michigan.

Moore describes Trump as “the last president of the United States”. The film’s title is a reference to the day that he won the election.

In an interview with HuffPost, Moore describes Trump as an “evil genius” and speaks to the potential power of his new film.

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore’s Trump documentary

The documentary will premiere at this year’s Toronto film festival before a US release on 21 September.

“Hope is passive,” Moore said about the movie. “Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out. We don’t need hope. We need action.”

Seems fair – fairer than anything that’s come from the Orange Moron.
