Latest Missile Launch by North Korea - North Korean Crisis

Lets Get Real:

This is North Korea reminding the World that it is still a problem, the US media obsession with Russia has been hitting the headlines of late, thus pushing North Korea down the news interest.   The World has to be careful that Trump does not uses North Korea as a way to divert attention, the Trump Oval could threaten to strike North Korea, or take other drastic action, this might be the right path but also a way to get ahead of the news cycle.   One can only hope that that Trump's National Security Team can control him, otherwise North Korea could become the new Cuban Missile Crisis. 

The Weekend Polls - Campaign 36 - GE2017

Lets Get Real:

The margins are good for the Conservatives, but the Party has to be careful, there are still a few weeks to go, so the Party has to ACT as if its 10% behind, take nothing for granted.  On the whole for Labour if the polls are right, they have to get their core vote out, also they have to get what Ed Miliband got in 2015, either in percent or seats number.   It will be interesting to see if the NHS hack had any effect on the polls.  That will have to wait for next week.  The Liberal Democrats seem seem to have sunk, the same can be said for UKIP.   The official manifestos are out next week, lets see if that affects the polls.
