    A pointless thread - a bit like Dodgy Donnie's pointless wall.

    It is like something out of Swift in a way. You can just see the chapter heading. 'A wall. How it may not be built and why the Mexicans should pay for it's non-arrival'.

    The Americans are going to have to not build this wall out into the Pacific and east across the Gulf of Mexico as far as Florida y'know.

    They could station a floating casino at either end. Don's legacy.

    Trump will simply pretend the wall got built. Most Americans will believe him.

    If they put solar panels on it there could be a real boost for American renewables
    If you describe yourself as an "activist" on Twitter are you an activist, a self regarding poser or a Walter Mitty. Cause you're definitely one of them.

    The success of the Hungarian fence in reducing monthly illegal immigration to the low hundreds illustrates walls work.
