How much is too much for the Conservatives?

We have yet another example given to us that Boris Johnson clearly does not think that the rules apply to him. Not even those placed on him by a wedding vow. His history of extramarital relationships is already known but we can add another to the list from over the years. Jennifer Acuri has added… Continue reading How much is too much for the Conservatives?

The last couple of weeks in review.

To start, an apology for the recent absence. This was mainly because I was moving house and that tends to take up a lot of your attention. Also, it was Christmas and this has been a pretty rubbish year so I decided to enjoy what we could do over this festive period rather than trying… Continue reading The last couple of weeks in review.

A Week in Review: 12th-18th October

Premier League rejects ‘Project Big Picture,’ but promises to look at the big picture So, Project Big Picture comes to nothing. The radical new plan to restructure the English football pyramid was soundly rejected by all 20 Premier League clubs last week. That surely means that even the clubs who devised the ideas in the… Continue reading A Week in Review: 12th-18th October

This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

Endless Carping?! I won’t say I was astonished by Jacob Rees-Mogg’s saying that people should stop complaining about the shortage of coronavirus tests and everyone should be praising the system instead as a ‘phenomenal success’. Apparently, everyone should heap praise on the government for having system in place at all, and ignore all the flaws… Continue reading This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.

A Week in Review: 31st August-6th September

Trump disrespects fallen soldiers of his own armed forces Now this is according to an anonymous source in an article in the Atlantic. But everything the article says fits in with the image I have of Donald Trump. I have never met the man, let alone spent enough time in his company to feel like… Continue reading A Week in Review: 31st August-6th September

Why does anyone think that a general election will break the deadlock?

And so, Britain is once again heading to the polls ahead of schedule. For the third time in the last five years, the British public will be asked for their opinion of who should run the country. After the Fixed Term Parliament Act was passed, we were looking at a future where Prime Ministers could… Continue reading Why does anyone think that a general election will break the deadlock?

Having Boris Johnson as Prime Minister is a national embarrassment. He needs to be shown the door.

So, we now have a Prime Minister who has been found by the highest court in the land to have done something unlawful but doesn't care. He demonstrated that this week as Parliament reconvened after the Supreme Court's ruling on Tuesday. His entire performance at the despatch box was that of a petulant arrogant child… Continue reading Having Boris Johnson as Prime Minister is a national embarrassment. He needs to be shown the door.

So, to return sovereignty and democracy to the UK, we have to suspend the democratic body?

I'm sorry, what?! That is ludicrous, even more so the reasons they've given for doing it. Johnson and his government are insisting this is to do with the domestic agenda and not Brexit, which is so much bullshit I don't know where to start shovelling. This is clearly about trying to steamroller a version, any… Continue reading So, to return sovereignty and democracy to the UK, we have to suspend the democratic body?

Why do Brexiteers think the EU owe us anything?

Michael Gove has said in the last couple of days that the EU is refusing to negotiate with the UK. Well, duh! From their point of view the negotiation has already taken place and a deal agreed. They've also said repeatedly the Withdrawal Agreement is not open to renegotiation so the matter is closed. There… Continue reading Why do Brexiteers think the EU owe us anything?

Is the country headed for complete disaster?

Well, we're down to the last two runners in the Conservative race to Number 10. And does anyone honestly care anymore? The whole thing is as farcical as the EU referendum, the 2017 general election and basically anything major that has happened in British politics for the last two and a half years. We have… Continue reading Is the country headed for complete disaster?
