Why are so many head teachers running their schools like they’re in charge of every aspect of a child’s life? Schools are educational institutions but we keep hearing about kids being sent home for ridiculous non-education related things like having the wrong haircut. This week a School headteacher has banned pupils from having boyfriends and […]

Free speech is under attack in Britain again. Less than a week after I was forced to apologize to the Prime Minister for saying she’s weak, Ben Bradley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Mansfield has been forced to apologize for a blog he wrote in 2012. Here’s what he wrote, “Sorry but how many […]

Dash Scam


If you’re thinking of getting a dashcam fitted to your car, DON’T get the one I got! Unless you enjoy spending ever increasing amounts of money on software and SD cards and have hours of spare time to faff about with it, this dashcam is not for you. I thought I wanted one for Christmas, […]

Broken Windows


The US has blamed North Korea for the “WannaCry” computer virus. – I blame Bill Gates. The White House Homeland Security adviser, Tom Bossert said North Korea was “directly responsible” for the WannaCry malware attack that hit hospitals, businesses and banks across the world earlier this year. The thing that’s not widely reported after these […]

Britain’s Brexit nightmare continues. The head of the European Council says the UK and the EU face a “furious race against time” to finalise Brexit talks before March 2019. Meanwhile the British government has lost a vote in the House of Commons because parliament wants the right to vote on the final terms of the […]

Bloodhound Gang


The land speed record annoys me. The people who break the record, cheat by using a plane instead of a car. “Bloodhound” made its first public runs this week. It’s driven by Royal Air Force Wing Commander Andy Green. It’s powered by a jet engine from the Eurofighter-Typhoon. The wheels for the test runs are […]

Trump Card


Donald Trump and Nigel Farage are both sexist. You’ve probably heard what Donald Trump said in that leaked audio. He bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation that he didn’t know was being recorded. He said that “When you’re a star, they let you […]

Pass The Duchy


What is the royal prerogative? Well, here’s an example; there is a UK property business that owns land and buildings in 23 different counties. That includes farming land, residential and commercial properties, including the oval cricket ground in London, and other assets including ancient monuments, coastline and quarries all worth around £1bn. It makes more […]

The Labour Party will be asking Keith Vaz a lot of questions so they know what to do next.    The Mirror is reporting that the Labour politician, a married father of two, is leading a double life paying young male escorts for sex. The paper says that in a rendezvous last month, he offered […]

Beware of shysters who say they can predict the future! You’d think that in the 21st Century, there wouldn’t be much call for fortune tellers but the profession is alive and well and a lot of money is spent on it. It’s a racket but stupid people continue to fall for this stuff. The most […]



Sir Philip Green should not be stripped of his knighthood. If he did something wrong, he should go to jail. Green is under pressure after a parliamentary report into the collapse of the retail chain British Home Stores was released. MPS accused him of ‘systematically’ taking money out of the company, failing to address its […]

Trump Card


The Republican National Convention in Cleveland is one of the scariest things I’ve ever watched. True leaders define reality and give hope. Politicians don’t work that way, they embrace a distorted reality and promise solutions to problems that don’t exist. Take just one example, immigration. Here in the UK, there is a fear that immigrants […]

The Russian Olympic team should not be banned from the games in Rio next month. The International Olympic Committee said it will “explore the legal options” before deciding whether to implement “a collective ban” on all Russian competitors for the global showpiece, which starts on 5 August. That’s not fair, because the Russian Olympic team […]

Sweet S.A.!


Why does Britain impose sanctions on some countries but not others? While the South African government practiced the system of apartheid, the United Kingdom (and 24 other nations including the United States) passed laws placing various trade sanctions on that country. The time that apartheid was allowed to exist in South Africa has been described […]

Superbugs will kill someone every three seconds by 2050. That’s according to a global review, published by Lord Jim O’Neill. The problem is, bugs are becoming resistant to antibiotics. The reason is that farm animals are being fed antibiotics. Those drugs are ending up in OUR food. We’re now all on antibiotics so superbugs are […]

Hate Crime


This week a man was arrested in Scotland because an online video shows his dog making a Nazi salute. He could now be charged for committing a hate crime. The Crown Prosecution Service website has a large section on hate crime and how they define it. I was particularly interested in the section on race […]

A schoolboy holds a leather ball In a photograph on a bedroom wall the bed is made, the curtains drawn as silence greets the break of dawn. The dusk gives way to morning light revealing shades of red and white which hang from posters locked in time of the Liverpool team of 89. Upon a […]
