This month marks 30 years since BBC Wiltshire started. I presented the Breakfast Show on Swindon’s BBC Wiltshire from 2010 to 2012 and was lucky enough to win a Gold Sony Radio Academy Award for “Breakfast Show Of The Year”, the “Program Presenter Award” Gold at the BBC Gillards, “Best Radio Personality” bronze and “Best […]


Democracy doesn’t work which is a shame with council elections on right now. Most people are not Scientists, economists or engineers. Politicians are experts on politics but not much else. When politicians make policy they should really ask experts on each individual topic and go with what they say. The problem is, experts make up […]

Here’s what happened when I had a chat with one of the eco-protesters in London. Craic on! If you enjoyed this Craic, please click “like” and tweet a link. Listen to the latest Mack Nuggets at; http://www.mackmedia.co.uk/8th-mack-nuggets-audio-video  


Cell Phones

28Dec18

Prison reform has gone too far. All inmates in England will have 24-hour access to a phone soon. 50 jails will have landlines fitted to every cell before March 2020 and eventually all 118 prisons in England will have phones in cells. It’s another barmy policy that’s been pushed through by do-gooders and snivel- libertarians. […]


Ticket To Snide

24Dec18

My train was cancelled this morning due to “a lack of available trains”. What does that mean? The trains aren’t “available”, did they have other plans today? I wonder if we’re given the real reason for delays and cancellations or if Thameslink have a random excuse generator. Since I’ve been commuting to London Blackfriars from […]


Blame Storming

Why are your kids so fat? Before I reveal the answer, let me just put your mind at rest, it’s not YOUR fault because this is Britain. Britain is the greatest country on earth because when you live here, NOTHING is your fault. If you can’t find a job, it’s because of immigration, if you […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: Fat shaming. The lady filmed shaving her legs in a public swimming pool. Diversity in the NHS. Boris Johnson gets pranked. Israel wins Eurovision. Disgruntled tourists knock Britain. No more cheap booze in Scotland. Should wolf whistling be banned? Unleaded food and drink. The Ikea […]


Booze Ruse

22May18

  Scotland has just brought in a silly law. You can’t buy cheap booze north of the border anymore. It’s because of the new minimum pricing legislation. The cost of drinks now depends on how many units of alcohol they have. A two-litre bottle of cider that was £2.50 now costs at least £7.50. The […]


This week, the two most powerful women in Britain are sucking up to a representative of a regime that regards women as second class citizens. In Saudi Arabia, women need to be accompanied by a male guardian known as a ‘mahram’, whenever they leave the house. The guardian is often a relative and will accompany […]


Carmageddon

Filthy fossil fuel burning cars are here to stay, unfortunately. Electric vehicles should be the future of transport. Vehicles that burn fossil fuels are putting toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. Electric vehicles will not catch on in Britain unless there’s a big change. Unfortunately there is no sign of that change any time soon. The […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: A first car quirk. Out of Africa. When Darren fell off his bike. Donald Trump upsets Simon. Sport on the public highway. University students being used by militant university lecturers. The themed hotel with attention to detail. Global warming. Bee rustling. Craic on! If you […]


Control Freaks

28Feb18

A lot of people voted for Brexit so that Britain could, “take back control” but what does control look like? Right now, politicians from both sides are trying to make it look like Britain can control Brexit. There’s a lot of talk about the customs union. Which is a thing that means all EU countries […]


London Calling

In the latest episode of my show for America: A first car quirk inspired by Lord Alan Sugar. The reason the world is out of whack right now. The leader gets thrown out of the political party of self-harm. An Out of Africa experience. The British pub that sells groceries. How India has ripped off […]


The university students of Britain should stand up against the University And College Union. Lecturers have gone on strike over cuts to their pensions. Sally Hunt, the General Secretary of the University And College Union said, ”If you will not give us what we need, which is a reasonable pension, we will not do what […]


What’s going on with UKIP? Here’s my favorite tweet this week, it’s from Nick Walker, “I’m about halfway through a bottle of Fairy washing up liquid that has outstayed three UKIP leaders”. The UK Independence party has had seven leaders since 2011. UKIP exist because it’s Eurosceptic , they campaigned for Brexit, meaning their MEPs […]


The Indians and Arabs are going to Mars. India has teamed up with The United Arab Emirates. In two years time they’re going to send a probe to the red planet. Their ultimate goal is colonisation. The UAE and India might sound like a strange partnership but it makes sense. If you want to conquer […]

In the latest episode of my show for America, Tony Hendra the English writer and actor, talks about how he went from wanting to be a monk to becoming a satirist, working with Graham Chapman from Monty Python, moving to America in the 60s, opening for Lenny Bruce, appearing on the Ed Sullivan show and […]


There’s a sports car on the way to Mars! It’s the most exciting thing to happen in space since we sent people to the moon. I watched the launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy last night and it was mind blowing. When the two booster rockets landed simultaneously it looked like a scene from Thunderbirds. […]


I got to talk to the satirist, actor and writer Tony Hendra about his amazing life and work which touches Monty Python, Saturday Night Live, George Carlin and beyond. He talks about how he discovered John Belushi and Chevy Chase, working on This Is Spinal Tap and how he started out wanting to be a […]


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 […]
