The things politicians think are important are usually different to the things that the people who voted for them think are important. The bongs of Big Ben in Westminster have sounded for the final time for four years. The clock is being repaired. Members of Parliament gathered outside the Houses of Parliament yesterday to mark […]


The Wet Office

21Aug17

It’s bad enough that we haven’t had a summer but why can’t the Met Office get it right? Right now, it’s pouring down in the South East of England. It’s on days like these every year that I go back and look at the forecast that the Met Office issued three months ago, promising us […]


Football Crazy

02Aug17

English football clubs are missing out on revenue because of a dumb rule THEY agreed to more than fifty years ago. We got news this week that it’s going to get harder to watch the Premier League on TV this season. A lot of people have been watching games on Kodi through PCs, X-Boxes, Google TV […]


Has another bogus theory has 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.

“You have to plug them in, what a nuisance, it takes ages!” That was the disappointed response I got today when I told a workmate that it won’t be long till we’re all driving electric cars. Most mainstream manufacturers are either selling electric cars or developing them for release soon. Jaguar has its first electric […]


Soon anti-car environmentalists aren’t going to have as much to shout about. Last week, Volvo announced that in less than two years, ALL of their new cars will have electric motors. Most other car makers now sell electric cars and a lot more are on the way. Tesla motors announced last week that mass production […]

Here’s what I’ve been up to on BOBfm lately, including: Why is there always a single shoe by the side of the road? The zombie apocalypse at Stansted Airport. The fake speed camera. The British media are royal sycophants. Stuff left behind. David Beckham is no actor. Donald or Duke? Stephen Fry being investigated for […]


“Which way do you vote?” The sales manager at work asked me that question in the middle of a crowded office today. Britain’s next general election is only weeks away, I suppose he was curious. I told him it depends because I don’t have a brand loyalty. I approach voting the same way as I […]

Like a “zombie apocalypse”. That’s how one Twitter user described scenes at London’s Stansted airport yesterday.  Reports today say it was chaotic and some passengers even fainted. It was all because an X-ray machine broke down. It took nearly four hours to fix it. Stansted is the fourth busiest airport in the UK and is […]


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 […]

I got emotional on BBC Radio Merseyside yesterday. Driving to work, I heard the news that Chuck Berry had died. I don’t know why it affected me so much, I didn’t know him and never met him. I did see him live once though and can only describe the experience as spiritual. In 1989, I […]
