All day long the news stations are carrying on about the "Mid-Terms" over in the USA. I cannot make head nor tail of it, sounds like an exam to me. Donald Trump is going to loose his house or what? My wife's hairdresser told her that it is really important, and something about a load of caravans causing a big stink. We used to belong to the Caravan Club and I cannot imagine that lot causing a kick off. Snooty bunch they were as I remember. Maybe they are different - like Hells Angels - over the pond? All I know is there is a lot of noise about it, and it is doing my head in.

Stick to Emmerdale. Stay away from the news channels for a few days/ you are too thick. Boris, Aaron or Nigel will tell you what to do when you are needed again.

Jimmy, the mid-terms are the Congressional elections in the middle of a Presidential term. The “House” is the House of Reprentatives, currently controlled by President Trump’s Republican Party, and they are likely to lose control to the Democratic Party.

Also, what you call a caravan we usually call an RV, for Recreational Vehicle. The caravan in the news is a large group of migrants making their way from Mexico to the Southern U.S. Border.

Hope that helps.

Cheers, MJ. I was at a mates house last night and he had Fox News they explained it better than those plummy mouthed remoaners at the BBC.

And for reply to the other guy: I obtained 4 O levels at night school and while was wife was away I ran our B&B. That involved accounting, dealing with customers, management of staff, and advertising. If I am so "thick" then how come I increased customer satisfaction and profit? I am proud of my achievements.

I love those RV homes. I would like to spend a few years driving through the USA, it is a beautiful country. I might park it for a few months in the South. I like the food from that region. Real life gets in the way, but maybe one day.

Actually a caravan of brigands intent on establishing the Socialist Caliphate of Arizona, bulldozing chapels and erecting transgender toilet facilities and Inca temples. I do not believe they are affiliated with the UK Caravan Club. I am sorry to hear that you found the aforementioned a "snooty bunch" that is not my experience. I can assure you they are not involved in trans national invasions resulting in the mobilization of US troops.

Refugees. Desperate people who are the victims of mindless electioneering/ a caravan of. Sounds like a near biblical term to me and very weird, like everything else these days.

The house is usually in controll of opposite party, that's how it historically goes in US. The rest is controlled by republicans, they really didn't fight for the house.

Trump didn't fight for it then? Oh OK, so he won really, right? Trump is now stoking an unseemly spat with Macron. You can imagine Reagan or Bush, or even Nixon, behaving this way?

It is unfair to compare Donald with Ronald, George, or Richard. A more illuminating comparison would be with a significant (and more relevant) historical figure. Yosemite Sam or P.T Barnum spring to mind. You should apply context when seeking to reach a valid conclusion. You should also pay more attention and attend to personal hygiene issues.

Serious issue, guyz. It is easy to laugh, just as with Jacob Rees-Mogg, but the reality is chilling. Whipping up populist outrage against imagined enemies leads to one thing....division. Ever heard of divide and rule? Who gains from all this? Ask yourself that.
