WATCH: Biden Copies Margaret Thatcher in Confirmation Speech

Last night the US Electoral College formally elected Joe Biden as President Elect. One passage of his acceptance speech made Guido’s ears prick up. In 1987, Joe Biden dropped out of the Presidential primaries after a plagiarism scandal following a speech where he lifted the words of Neil Kinnock. Last night instead he copied Kinnock’s nemesis – Margaret Thatcher by quoting the words of St Francis of Assisi. Thatcher famously quoted the same passage upon the morning of her election. Now Biden is doing the same upon his.

Guido hopes perhaps he can learn from Maggie’s policy not just her choice of quotes. He did, after all, table a resolution to formally back her in the Falklands war while the White House equivocated…

US President-Elect Calls EU Council President, Finally

A press release from the EU announces that

The President of the European Council Charles Michel spoke today Monday 23 November 2020 with President-elect Joe Biden and congratulated him on his election as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris as the future Vice-President.

During the call President Michel proposed to rebuild a strong transatlantic alliance based on common interests and shared values. He welcomed the strong commitment of the President-elect Biden to America’s allies and his support for European cooperation. 

Today. Two weeks after Biden called Boris. All that nonsense about being stronger and bigger on the world stage as part of a bloc which was “a superpower”? Delusional Europhiles; don’t call us, we call you… eventually.

Americans Don’t Remember the Fifth of November

Respected American news sites The Hill and ABC News were widely mocked on social media over the weekend after reporting firework displays across the UK as spontaneous celebrations of Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump in the US Presidential election. Guido was disappointed to discover the lack of recognition for his namesake…

They also claimed bells were ringing in Paris at the news. Liberation’s fact checking service dryly stated that the diocese of Paris denies this information.

“We have not received any instructions to ring the bells in honour of Biden’s victory. So, in Paris, no bell rang following this news. We sometimes ring the bells on political subjects, at the request of the mayor of Paris. This is the case, for example, every year at the end of August, to celebrate the liberation of Paris in 1945. But yesterday, there were no requests.”

ABC have now deleted the tweet…

Tucker on Trump as a Searing Indictment of the Ruling Elite

“Donald Trump is a living indictment of the people who run this country”, a must watch diatribe on the indifference of the ruling elite from Tucker Carlson. Some wonder if Tucker might make a run in 2024…

Punters Calling it For Biden

Just after midnight as the early results came in far stronger for Trump than the pollsters had predicted, the betting markets flipped odds, making Trump the strong favourite to win. Donald’s red line showed him peaking in the early hours of the morning and he remained favourite until late morning London time, when Biden’s blue line started to climb as he began to claw some of the states which were competitive. As we go to pixel punters give Biden an 80% plus probability of being the next President of the United States…

Trump Dances His Way To the Finish Line

This evening the 2020 US Presidential election finally ends. The incumbent has had a knack for producing viral social media content throughout his presidency, and this final voting day is no different.

VOTE!” Theresa May eat your heart out…
