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?

We have… Continue reading Is the country headed for complete disaster?

The Brexit Chaos: What the hell is going on?

And here we go again. We were supposed to have moved passed the incessant squabbling and infighting amongst the Conservatives and finally agreed on a direction to try and steer Brexit towards. But no. We're back where we were, with no clear plan moving forward, the government in crisis, the Conservative Party close to stamping… Continue reading The Brexit Chaos: What the hell is going on?

How to be ‘real’ on Instagram? Apparently the Conservatives need help with that.

This is genuinely the best political story I've read in the past few days. The Conservatives need help making their MPs look 'real' on Instagram. Yep. They had a powerpoint presentation and everything. Now, I get why they might want to improve their social media strategy and making MPs more comfortable with another way of… Continue reading How to be ‘real’ on Instagram?
