Republican debate: Donald Trump was garbled, incoherent - and dominant

theguardian.com — Donald Trump, the unexpected frontrunner in the race for the Republican nomination for president, plunged headfirst into the primary's first televised debate on Thursday, causing an instant splash that was remarkable even by his own standards.

The Republican debate: meet the 2016 candidates

theguardian.com — Donald Trump Billionaire and TV personality His surge in the polls on the back of a tide of anti-immigration, anti-establishment sentiment is the biggest story of the Republican race so far. Bombastic, fearless and a barely plausible occupant of the White House, he is, as far as national polls are concerned, the Republican frontrunner.

MERGING INCOME TAX AND NATIONAL INSURANCE

paullewismoney.blogspot.com — The Government has asked the Office of Tax Simplification to investigate ' closer alignment' of income tax and National Insurance. It could result in a single new tax which would probably apply only to earnings. The task will be difficult and there will be winners and losers.

Next time Trump ejects a journalist from his press conference, all the others should stand up, turn around, and walk out in solidarity.

Aug 26, 2015

Reaction by some Washington journalists to @jorgeramosnews ejection from the Trump press conference is so distasteful.
