Donald Trump says he is considering arming teachers after shooting tragedy
By far and away, the greatest issue facing the people of the United Kingdom today is Brexit and the unholy mess that this government is creating in the negotiations with Europe.
However, on Sky television News last night (21st February), over two hours was devoted to Donald Trump and his meaningless rhetoric in a discussion with an invited audience on the question of gun control in the "United States". An issues which has been debated numerous times before after previous atrocities of mass shootings in the USA. After the live broadcast, Sky News presenters spent even more time precising the discussion and offering their own "take" on what Trump and some of the audience had said.
At the end of the day, this debate will produce the same result as all the other debates and Americans will go on shooting each other because the 2nd Amendment (adopted on December 15, 1791) and the power of the "Gun Lobby" in the United States will ensure that nothing will change. No matter how much hot air is generated after each massacre, the "Right to bear arms" is embedded in the American character and will not change.
Meanwhile, the divisions within cabinet concerning Brexit and the so called transition period remain as a thorn in government's, side and the divisions in the country grow more bitter each day. Today, a meeting of the cabinet Brexit Committee is to be held at Chequers, an "Away Day" to resolve the huge differences between ministers on this momentous subject.
It will be interesting to witness how much coverage Sky Television News gives to an issue which directly affects millions of people, in the United Kingdom and in the remainder of Europe.
