Aiyoh, "caught between a rock and a hard place" comes to mind. Does America really need to elect a new president every 4 / 8 years? Why not have a perpetual president? Look at SG and LKY. Till death do us part.

S&P futures down 3%! This could go the path of BREXIT.

I'm looking at an almost completely red US map. New York Times just said that Trump now has a 95% probability to win! :shock:

Clearly Hillary Clinton is such an unpleasent thought that Donald Trump can win an election against her.

Some reflection clearly needed by her.

Wonder if Donald will stick to his debate pledge that she will be going to jail :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

In India we have a bigger worry. Overnight our PM came on TV and announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1000 the biggest denominated notes are not legal tender with immediate effect.

Imagine the chaos

Two big votes this year where the Political Elite have been well and truly embarrassed by their clear lacking in connection to the ground.

I am not holding out much hope , but I would like to think that the career Politicians realise that they to actually do something useful going forwards.
