In Britain we have created a society addicted to or dependant on Alcohol, Drugs, Gambling, Food – and worse of all ‘BENEFITS’?

 THE BENEFITS NET Addiction and dependency [often linked to mental health] is rife in Britain these days and that applies not just to the general population but even to revered professions like (stressed?) doctors, who should know better eh? It is estimated that there are about ½ million dependent drinkers in England and ALCOHOL the fifth […]

You may WELL have voted for BREXIT [et vous ne regrette rien], but your vote will count for NOTHING – no ‘PEOPLE’S democracy here in Britain nowadays?

        BIG FIBS, BIGGER FIBS, MASSIVE FIBS The powers that be and the Establishment in the UK were flummoxed when the people voted in June 2016 to openly defied them in favour of BREXIT. However, when they had overcome their bewilderment, they simply concluded that with time, because they knew best [mainly for themselves, their class, and their commercial interests), that […]

When was it first decided that “BREXIT means Remain” – or then that the “ECJ will NOT control our Laws” to “ECJ will INDEED control our Laws”, or finally that a “BAD DEAL is better than a NO-DEAL”?

       When weak vicar’s daughter Theresa May took over as Prime Minister from lying arsehole David Cameron in July 2016, the nation, in a binary choice, and in defiance of the Government and ALL the major parties, had decisively picked BREXIT. That was NOT an instruction from the voters [in the biggest turnout ever] to […]

Teenage schoolchildren working in the holidays – a massive benefit or a disgrace?

Somehow or other, a silly debate is raging here as to whether or not it is a good thing for teenagers to actually work in holiday time. It was kicked-off a couple of days or so ago when Esther McVey (Secretary of State for Work and Pensions) wrote an article encouraging youngsters to go out […]

Now a new leader for our BREXIT negotiations in Brussels – a ‘Remainer’ who has remained a ‘Remainer’?

      Beneath the radar, PM Theresa May has actually ditched her new Secretary for ‘Exiting the EU’ Dominic Raab in his first week, to head-up herself the surrender negotiations with the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier – SHE is taking personal control of EU withdrawal negotiations. May has retrieved from the bin, the disguise that […]

Britain’s wonderful NHS has just had its 70th birthday – will it still be with us to see its 80th?

  There was much flag waving and badges wearing four weeks ago when the National Health Service turned 70, as understandably it was a big opportunity to celebrate, wasn’t it? Some of us though instead had a tear in our eye. That was because we have been around a long while, we have been there since […]

Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Russian novel ‘Crime and Punishment’ now re-written in English – ‘UNABATED-Crime and NO Punishment’?

         The rule of law in the UK is going down the toilet these days, isn’t it? Yep, crime is rocketing-up, in conjunction with offenders being charged dropping like a stone, and the biggest surprise about all that, is that it is happening before our very eyes, under no-less than a ‘Conservative’ Government – the […]

England’s housing disaster was ‘man-made’ – by successive incompetent UK governments?

   A post here three years ago “England’s housing crisis is now in fact a disaster ¬ can it ever be resolved?” November 5, 2015 by dadman007, outlined major reasons why England was experiencing the vice like grip of a housing shortage. The question now is has anything changed? It seems NOT, doesn’t it? Yep, NO […]

Can May survive her BREXIT blueprint’s mauling by the EU – YES?

      As you will know, the fresh out of the box, ‘NEW’ Exiting the EU secretary, Dominic Raab, trotted off last Thursday to Brussels to meet his fate in commencing his first BREXIT negotiations with the EU’s aggressive chief negotiator Michel Barnier. Also, you probably know, or have guessed, that he is facing a Barnier […]

The UK’s whole future is dependent on ‘BREXIT’ – now in the hands of an amateur?

      Negotiations with the EU were today underway again in Brussels, but the positive, upbeat, LEAVE campaigner, and WIDELY experienced politician David Davis, the ‘Exiting the EU’ secretary no less, was forced out of Office (intentionally?) by Theresa May with her unacceptable, surreptitious, Chequers plan, so is no longer leading those TORTUROUS negotiations, is he?
