Are the Russians getting ready to invade us? There was a Russian submarine in the English channel on the weekend. The Royal Navy ship, HMS Somerset spotted it off the east coast of the UK on Friday morning and followed it through the Strait of Dover. Last month, Somerset’s sister ship HMS Sutherland escorted two […]


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 […]

I’ve worked out how to save the planet. We keep hearing about how fossil fuels are bad for the environment and how they’re eventually going to run out anyway. As long as we generate electricity from renewable sources the answer has to be electric cars. I’ve been thinking about this lately because the new Mackmobile […]

If someone pays you to be their friend, are they REALLY your friend? Our Prime Minister, Theresa May has been to Saudi Arabia this week. She’s been sucking up to them so they buy more arms and military training from Britain. Saudi Arabia’s values are the complete opposite to ours. They have an appalling record […]


stly  Airport security checks are a joke. Now there’s going to be a muslim laptop ban. When you fly to Britain from the mostly muslim countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia, you’ll not be allowed to bring a laptop or tablet computer onto the plane with you. You’ll have to put […]


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 […]

Blame Me!

I am responsible for Liverpool’s defeat to Swansea on Saturday. It’s the first game I’ve managed to get to all season. I bought a new hat and scarf for the occasion. I can now, never wear that hat and scarf to another game. I want to get rid of them but how can a risk […]


When I record an interview for broadcast, the first thing I do is set the levels. I usually ask the guest what they had for breakfast. This week, I got an answer I wasn’t expecting. I was at BBC Radio Merseyside, my guest was John Gorman. You may remember him from The Scaffold (‘Lily The […]
