Here’s what is written in the latest edition of TALKERS magazine; British Talk Show Host and TalkersRadio Personality Graham Mack Forced to Apologize for On Air Statement that PM Theresa May “Has No Balls.”  It is always fascinating to compare and contrast American radio with broadcasting in other English-speaking countries when it comes to tolerance, freedom […]


Nigel Farage says and does some strange things. He’s Britain’s most high profile Brexiteer but you have to wonder if he even believes in Brexit at all. On the 23rd June 2016 as the polls closed after the referendum he said, “it looks like Remain will edge it”. The following day he was interviewed on […]

In the latest episode of my show for America, it’s the second part of my chat with retired NASA astronaut, Terry Virts.

The Name Game

03Jan18

A caller to my radio show called me a “Remoaner” today. – I thought, is that all you’ve got, name calling? Instead of explaining to me just how these dinky little islands off the coast of northern Europe would be better off without being part of an international organisation which is the biggest tariff-free trade […]

Confusion over Gregs. A brush with wildlife. Mandy checks in. The gadget that Daren misses. Odd circumstances where people have been chatted […]


Disney has made a big mistake. Why did Rupert Murdoch sell Twenty-First Century Fox inc to Disney? The answer should be obvious but the mainstream media seem confused by the sale and it’s timing, and keep trotting out the line that it’s got something to do with competing with Netflix and Amazon. If you haven’t […]

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 […]


A lot of socialists believe in nationalised industries. A leaked Labour manifesto from earlier this year proposed a partial re-nationalisation of some of Britain’s biggest firms. Britain used to have a lot of nationalised businesses. They were owned by the state and included coal mining, steel manufacture, water, electricity and the railways. Nowadays, these industries […]

In the latest episode of my show for America: A supermarket disaster. How much do airlines REALLY care about our safety? The job interview from hell. Does that make me crazy? The cemetery for robots. Why it’s perfectly legal to buy explosives in the UK. Mistaken identity. Can sheep recognise faces? A long shot that […]


Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have a lot in common. They came straight after each other and people voted for the same thing. They wanted their country back. To be more accurate, they wanted to “feel” as if they had their country back. I can’t speak for America but in Britain, Brexiteers may […]


Bad news if you’ve ever fancied riding a bike naked through Britain. The British government has announced it wants to put driverless cars on our roads by 2021. About 100 cyclists are killed on the roads in Great Britain every year and more than 3,000 are seriously injured. When all cars are driverless, no cyclists […]


Savory Savoir

If you say Jesus backwards, it sounds like “sausage” but that doesn’t mean you can depict the saviour as one in a nativity scene. Greggs the Bakers have apologised after replacing baby Jesus with a sausage roll in a Nativity scene, to promote their advent calendar. A right wing pressure group called the Freedom Association […]


Beware of the tolerance paradox! Australians have voted to legalise same sex marriage. In a national survey, 61.6% of voters voted yes to a change in the law, 38.4% were opposed. Almost 40% of those who voted were against a change in the law. This morning I watched an interview on Sky News with lady […]


Politicians want to control you and take away your freedom. In some places they’re taking that to the extreme, you know, places like North Korea. But it’s happening in Europe too. In Helsinki Finland, they’re experimenting with a thing called “Universal Basic Income”, (UBI). It will be enough to live on, much higher than a […]


Firework Dismay

02Nov17

Why is it legal to buy explosives in Britain? On November 5th, we celebrate “Bonfire Night”. Every year, around 1,000 people visit hospitals for treatment of firework-related injuries. Half of the injuries are to under-18s. Since 1996, four people have been killed in firework accidents in the UK. I lived in Australia for almost seven […]
