    People say I should be more humble I hope they understand, they don't listen when you mumble

        I don't believe the 25th Amendment has ever been invoked in the manner in which it would be in this scenario. Previously it has only been invoked if a President resigned for example or if they invoked it themselves on an interim basis. George W did so i beleive on a couple of occasions when going for surgery. May be wrong but that's my understanding.

          Reagan was shot tbf so not exactly a voluntary situation. IIRC his Secretary of State had a presser and claimed, completely erroneously, that he was next in line and thus in charge.

          Nobody officially took over power from Nixon, but the Secretary of Defence and Kissinger made a pact that any orders emanating from the WH 'after dinner' were not be acted upon unless they both ratified them.

          Cohn whipped papers off Trump's desk before he could sign them too so that might be analagous to the above Nixon situation...

            I think that's a different process, not the 25th.

            Edit: I think that's a form of voluntary invocation (like a letter saying 'I temporarily renounce my office as of X' and then reinstated as soon as he's able) whereas what people are calling for tonight is for Trump to be involuntarily removed from office.

                Also, which which bookie was taking a hardline “it’s next president, it will be settled in January” angle. did they follow through?
                Somebody could be sweating the 25th if so. Madness.

                  Huh. McConnell didn't mention Trump by name.

                  Weak.

                    OK, it's shooting fish in a barrel time but still nice to see the GOP side squirm.

                      It was a joke, someone made the same ridiculous comment to me when I suggested that Trump not surviving the virus may be better for the world.

                        That Oklahoma GOP Senator was impressive. I wonder was that an about turn.

                            Just from his Wiki:

                            Lankford rejects the scientific consensus on climate change, calling it a "myth."
                            Lankford has largely opposed legislation promoting LGBT rights. He opposes same-sex marriage.
                            In 2014, Lankford was endorsed by the National Rifle Association and had an "A" rating for his consistent support of pro-gun legislation.
                            So yes, impressive. If you're one of the loons who attacked Congress today.

                              Ah, missed that at the time.
                              Agree that was ridiculous

                                  Only because it's politically expedient.

                                  He's a Trumpian ass-licker par excellence.

                                          I think the interest was largely due to the letters and ciphers sent to the media. There’s a reasonable chance he’ll be caught someday via dna. But he’s most likely the guy they suspected in the movie.

                                          Jack the Ripper is the other great unsolved killer.

Goods were sent on 29/12 according to them, I've been told I have to pay a customs charge now, that can't be right?

I read parts of it when staying in a place that had it, and he is convinced that Jack is Michael Maybrick.
                                                                              I suspect it was a nobody rather than a semi-famous person. But Maybrick is more plausible than Prince Albert or Lewis Carrol (both claimed suspects).

Goods were sent on 29/12 according to them, I've been told I have to pay a customs charge now, that can't be right?
                                                                                                What charge? There shouldn't be any extra charge unless the good originates outside the UK and the EU and is over €150. Third party was in some other country? Like others have said you can appeal etc due to dates.
