Floods, floods, floods, floods and still more floods – an Act of God, or a Dereliction of Duty by our Governments?

      The Environment Agency continues to issue flood warnings galore (still about a hundred and fifty) for mostly the North West and the North East of England, but now also Southwest and Wales – they come at three different levels Severe (warning of danger to life), Warning (flood expected, so immediate action required), Alert (flooding possible, […]

World Global Warming – is it really still with us?

Global warming ‘deniers’ still abound far and wide. Why is that you might wonder? Could it be perhaps that they have a vested interest in themselves benefiting from the ongoing use of fossil fuels, and their emissions into our environment of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxides, the so called greenhouse gases? Others, are possibly cynically […]

The ‘West Lothian Question’, & ‘English Votes for English Laws’ – another disgraceful political gambit?

Well, well, well. The politicians are on another destructive charge to destabilise the British treasured constitutional system after many hundreds of successful years’ operation.

People have died, individuals have been injured, lives have been destroyed, […]

Illusionists Extraordinaire – Sensational Newcomer?

‘Dynamo’ an amazing celebrity illusionist (who’s tricks have included ‘walking on the London Thames’) has his reputation as one of the World’s best, under serious threat from David Cameron’s and his Tory led Government’s claims about the British flooding calamity. We are given a statement by the Prime Minister claiming that in dealing with flood […]

UK Coastal Defences – what nightmare happened to them?

Famous White Cliffs of Dover are collapsing Sea level up by only 1m Could the UK survive a tsunami? Don’t be silly – we couldn’t survive a very high tide, never mind a massive wave! Tsunamis are caused by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions under the sea, massive landslides into water, or even hefty meteors from outer […]
