He's young, he's an outsider with a new party, and today, he was in London. His message might appeal to the many French voters in the UK, but for that dispirited group of British liberal remainers here, he seems to have quite a bit of appeal too.

I've been guilty of leaning on it myself. But the Democratic resistance and the Tea Party actually differ in a number of important ways, each of which tells a different story about where our country is and where our politics may be headed. For starters, the Tea Party was forged as an opposition to a societal reality in our country, while todays resistance is opposed to a political reality. The Tea Party began before the election of President Obama, as a reaction to President Bush and the bank bailouts of 2008. Tea Partiers believed that society and the economy had all left them behind. The movements anger was stoked by the realization that the country had changed to the extent that it would elect someone like Barack Obama and support his liberal policies like the Economic Recovery Act (the so-called stimulus) and the Affordable Care Act (scornfully dubbed Obamacare).

Jason Chaffetz and a crowd in Utah. “You can’t help but watch the Jason Chaffetz town hall and it not give you pause,” Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) told POLITICO before he hosted a loud town hall in Charleston on Saturday. We live in a fairly cantankerous political time.” Sanford said the crowds this year may be as active as the tea party phenomenon of 2009. “If you’re a Democrat back a number of years ago, it was the tea party phenomenon. It might be as contentious as some are now on the Republican side from groups like Indivisible,” Sandford said, referring to a liberal organizing group. Some Republicans say the protests are staged to make the opposition to Obamacare repeal appear bigger than it is. “I dont think they happen naturally. I think they’re programmed. I think they’re paid for and I think they’re planned,” said Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.).

He was in town today because they know that 20 years ago, Labour had a 20,000 majority here, but that fell to 5,000 at the last General Election. Tim farron, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, was also here today and, as for Ukip, their party leader is their candidate, Paul Nuttall. It will be very interesting to see how many people turn out for the by-election on Thursday.

Milo has exposed their liberal thuggery and we think free speech includes hearing Milo’s important perspective.” Yiannopoulos posted a statement to his Facebook Sunday night titled, “A note for idiots,” in which he wrote, “I do not support pedophilia. Period. It is a vile and disgusting crime, perhaps the very worst.” He wrote that the videos circulating were “selectively edited,” and that he regretted using the wordboy” in his comments. Schlapp said in his statement that the Facebook post was “insufficient.” Some prominent conservatives seemed to suggest that CPAC had provoked the maelstrom by tying itself to such a controversial figure. “The Milo Test,” wrote Charlie Sykes, a conservative former radio host who has written critically of the Republican Party since the rise of Trump. “Anti-Semitism, ok. Racism, ok. Alt Right, ok. Advocacy of pedophilia? Is THAT the bridge too far?” Alex Isenstadt contributed reporting to this story.

Cross-party group of peers to seek concessions despite critics arguing that efforts to block Brexit could spark reform of chamber Peers from across the parties will begin efforts to make changes to Theresa May’s plan for Brexit in the House of Lords on Monday, despite warnings from Tory MPs that their actions will increase appetite for reform or abolition of the upper chamber.

It's not true, Carol. It is true. It's wishy-washy to be a liberal. What you stand for? What does the center mean to you? It means not having hard right for a party, the eurosceptics, driving us off a cliff into no man's land out of Europe.

Neither party leadership nor the campaign committees have circulated talking points or suggested ways to respond to impeachment questions that are starting to appear. But they are already aware of the potential electoral blowback to the party. The mere mention of impeachment on the left has already kicked off a fundraising frenzy on the Republican side, with both the GOP House and Senate campaign wings raising cash off it — much like Democrats did under Obama when Republicans speculated about the prospect. “No president has EVER endured the level of disrespect shown to President Trump. (It’s sickening) Unprecedented obstruction from the left on his cabinet nominees. Mockery and scorn from the liberal media. And now the liberal elite are calling for his impeachmentIN HIS FIRST MONTH,” reads a National Republican Senatorial Committee email from this week.

We're going off topic, and if we start going on about if we should be in the EU, before you know it, you'll have launched a new party and we will be here all day! This is what the liberal elite is all about! Let me tell you what I think, because I met Brexiteer as well. I didn't know what to do for ages and I took a lot of time to research before taking my decision, but the liberal elites for me are a collection of people who can afford their principles.

You are so helped by the fact that liberals always take the bait. Nothing annoys people like the truth, Yiannopoulos concurred. Policing humor for racism and sexism is utterly wrongheaded. Not because normally its not there, but because thats how we build bridges and not how we break them. Yet Yiannopoulos made blatant sexist comments during the interview, criticizing Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman as people who used to be funny before they contracted feminism. Youre literally the only good [liberal], Yiannopoulos said, before slamming Girls creator and star Lena Dunham as the poster woman for the Democratic Partys issues. The Democrats are the party of Lena Dunham. These people are mental, hideous people, and the more that America sees of Lena Dunham, the fewer votes that the Democratic Party is going to get.

I think it's more about sex and drugs and rock 'n roll. Carol, you are talking about the ordinary people having their lives lorded over by the liberal elites. We have had far more conservative governments in this country than we have ever had Labour governments. If you look at the total, there have been more Tory governments than Labour, so my point is that, I agree with you in the sense that there is a faction of the Labour Party which we are just talking about, which are Jeremy Corbyn and his cronies which I would say are out of touch.
