Three political party leaders in Britain resigned after the British election on May 7th.
Ed Miliband resigned as the Leader of the (left-of-center) Labour Party after the worst Labour result since 1987.
After huge losses for the centrist Liberal Democratic party, the Leader of that party, Nick Clegg, resigned.
The Liberal Democrats were hit particularly hard, and the party has been reduced from 57 seats in Parliament in 2010 down to just eight now.
Nigel Farage, the leader of the smaller right-wing nationalist party UKIP (U.K. Independence Party) also reportedly will resign. The party only got one Member of Parliament into the House of Commons. Farage has “wavered” on resigning and has not yet technically left his post.
Here, Russell Brand examines the resignation speeches of Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage (who has now un-resigned) after last week’s election result.
Wikipedia states that Marion Gordon “Pat” Robertson is an American media mogul, executive chairman, and a former Southern Baptist minister.
He supports conservative Christian ideals, and he presently serves as chancellor and CEO of Regent University and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Robertson recommended recently that a Christian woman working with Buddhists quit her job.
He told viewers on Monday that Buddhism was like a “disease” and that Christians could get “infected” if their coworkers practiced it.
Republican Mitt Romney bowed out of the 2016 U.S. presidential race on Friday after considering a third run, telling supporters it was time for the next generation of party leaders to seek the White House.
Romney’s decision helps clarify a Republican field split between potential establishment candidates like former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and conservative voices represented by Texas Senator Ted Cruz or former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
However, sources such as Reuters claim that Romney has privately made known to aides he is not convinced that Bush can defeat Hillary Clinton if she becomes the Democratic presidential nominee.
TYT tries to figure out who Romney will support.
