Who would want to visit Britain right now? Britain’s fifth biggest airline, Monarch, has gone bust. Around a hundred and ten thousand customers are stranded overseas. Meanwhile, London Underground train drivers are going on strike and train drivers all over the country are striking this week as well. Let’s look at how bad things are […]


I had a chat with the broadcasting legend Tony Prince. He talked about meeting Elvis in Las Vegas, the truth about Colonel Tom Parker and Tony’s early life and career that took him from spinning discs and introducing the Beatles in a northern ballroom to broadcasting to an international audience of 100 million on Radio […]


Has another bogus theory been thrown out there? Is it keeping us from the truth? It’s being reported this week that experts at the British Medical Journal are saying that you shouldn’t finish an entire course of prescribed antibiotics. They they say that reducing the use of antibiotics is essential to help fight the growing […]


London Calling

In Episode 29 of my show for the USA, I talk about how the Soccer World Cup is coming to America, Canada and Mexico but should not be there at all; The Queen meeting her namesake in a zoo; How the National Trust upset Christians; The British tradition of doing a runner and the delights […]


If you drive a diesel car in Britain you could be paid up to £2000 by the government to scrap it and buy a petrol powered car instead. It’s part of government plans to tackle pollution, according to newspaper reports. Once again the government is blaming YOU for a problem THEY created. Buses, trucks, trains […]

Big Fat Lie

29Oct16

Britain’s new sugar tax will not make us any healthier and it’s unfair. The tax will be with us soon and it means we’ll be paying more for soft drinks. The idea is to reduce obesity levels. Do the government really think this will work? Right now, the most expensive soft drinks outsell the cheaper […]


Trump Card

10Oct16

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 […]


British journalism has let itself down badly, again. They reported about Prince William, Kate and their children and their trip to Canada AS IF IT WAS ACTUAL NEWS! The Daily Telegraph revealed that 16 month old Princess Charlotte said “pop” and “dada” at a children’s party. It was as if no other 16 month old […]


Johnny B. Good.

24Sep16

My favourite American broadcaster right now is Jonathon Brandmeier. His show goes out live every day on over a hundred radio stations. There’s something positive and uplifting about his style. Even when he’s complaining, he sounds like he’s having fun. I also love the way he interacts with his newsman, Buzz Kilman. This week, I […]


Gangsta Rap

10Sep16

The really cool music of any time period looks like it’s being performed by gang members. The Rock ‘n’ Rollers of the 50s, with their greased back hair, looked like they belonged to a gang. In the late 60s and early 70s, long haired rock stars looked like Hell’s Angels and the rappers of today […]


Cracked it!

27Aug16

When I discovered a three inch long crack in my car’s windscreen, I was angry at first, then I realised that crack contained the secret to eternal life. The crack can’t be repaired, I need a new windscreen. It’s the latest part that needs replacing. I’ve had the car for about a year and a […]


David Cameron will be a tough act to follow. His standup comedy at his final Prime Minister’s Questions was his best yet… Then I watched Theresa May’s effort… Oh dear, I didn’t laugh once. I started to get worried Theresa just wasn’t as funny as Dave. Then she proved me wrong…. By appointing Boris Johnson as Foreign […]


It’s not easy to predict the the future. The Met Office have all kinds of scientific equipment including satellites to help predict the future and they’re rubbish at it. They predicted a hot dry summer for England. We actually got one of the coldest wettest. In the autumn, they predicted 38 days of Arctic winter. […]


Monkey Music

08Dec15

I got back into music in 2004. It was all because of the late Jim Cronin. With Dr Alison Cronin, he set up the ape rescue centre, Monkey World in Dorset.  This week I found a video from 2004. I’d put a blues band together and got to be part of “Chimpfest”. It was the […]


I was the victim of a crime on the mean streets of Chicago a few years ago. I was reminded of this today when I came across a Youtube video of James Bay playing in Buddy Guy’s “Legends” club. James is from where we live in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and it turns out that he’s also […]


This week, Britain’s Prime Minister, David Cameron announced plans to fast-track new powers to tackle radicalisation and set out his intention to include a new counter-extremism bill in his Queen’s Speech later this month. It’s all because the fear of religious extremists has reached a new high. But it’s an irrational fear. According to statistics […]
