    Watching live videos on Facebook as Sky News presenter is waffling on about something he hasnít got a clue about.

    Trump wants flying tankers to be deployed, which clearly countries in Northern Europe have stockpiled

    Lots of people are going to be blamed by the religious nut jobs and lots of people are going to claim responsibility.

    @realDonaldTrump So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

    It's a good job Trump is on hand to offer advice, or the professional fire fighters wouldn't have a clue what to do.

    As you are dealing with a historic building made of wood already weakened by fire, might I suggest that dropping ten tonnes of water on top of it is actually a fucking spectacularly stupid idea.

    Twitter users already pointing that out,and calling trump a twat,lots of tinfoil hat wearers blaming brown immigrants,or George soros and the Rothschilds,arguing with these dicks is just like Cnut and the tides

    always hate seeing this.

    it's gonna end up being some careless construction worker who brought down a building that's stood for almost a millennia.

    They think they stand a better chance of saving it now than they did about four hours ago. Fingers crossed.

    Stands a chance. Having seen some construction sites in France it wouldn't surprise me.
    Terrible shame whatever the cause.

    Could you send your friend's name to the Paris rozzers, something sounds off with them.

    Why, did he assault someone else after being sent off last night?

    Fuck me... 500million already pledged for an object that was mainly rebuilt in the 18th century.
    Shows how much worth people put on famine and natural disasters in foreign lands where humans are actually dying.... God forbid the London Eye topples over.

    How much did it cost to rebuild that church in Dresden that we bombed pretty much flat? Pretty sure it wasn’t that much.

    Just checked 180m euros to rebuild the frauenkirche. Notre Dame is a substantially larger edifice but it has lost roof and spire rather than been reduced to rubble.

    Do we not spend on humanitarian aid each year ? I'm pretty sure we do

    Almost vomited at the BBC coverage on the news. Talk about over the top.

    People don't want to donate as much as they want to be seen donating. Religion and the religious are shit.

    Beautiful building. Apparently images of Jesus were seen in the flames. I bet Jesus never wore a yellow hi-viz jacket

    Saw a question the other day from some flat earther questioning why the gold cross survived and the roof didn't, must have been divine intervention or something. Nothing to do with wood burning at 600 degrees and gold melting at something like 1100 degrees then. Muppet.

    And the cross was at ground level,and the flames were 2-300 feet higher may have helped as well
