The Government’s use of CPI and RPI measures of inflation – employing the art of the conman?

When the Bank of England raised Bank Rate earlier this month, that was decided upon using the figure for inflation of 2.5% (the government’s inflation target, with primary aim of price stability, is actually 2%). Those numbers are based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) – the other most used measure of inflation over the […]

Not just James Bond 007 British Secret Service agent has ‘Licence to Kill’ – is it now NHS hospital Doctors?

Many of the British population don’t know it, haven’t experience it, but probably suspect it, but doctors (like the rest of us) make mistakes, but whereby the dire consequences of theirs, are that people die or their lives are destroyed, and the futures of their mothers, fathers, and relatives are forever blighted’ And so it […]

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 […]

Muslims have been welcomed into our British society but we don’t want to see the ‘burka’ or ‘niqab’ here thanks – BAN THOSE NOW?

      They say that ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has stirred-up a hornet’s nest by ridiculing the wearing of the ‘full face veil’ burka – what a load of tosh, eh? The anti-Boris crowd, egging-on elements of the sensational press, are making a mockery of what was a sensible and balanced article that Johnson wrote […]

Imprisonment without trial – the UK’s mortgage “affordability” scandal?

     There is a tribe of some 150thousand home owners who are held as ‘mortgage prisoners’ by their lenders’ eye-wateringly high interest rates – locked-into standard variable rate (SVR) of around 5% from a time when Bank Rate even went as low as 0.25%. [and with standard mortgage rates soaring way above the UK […]

‘Canadian’ Mark Carney Governor of Bank of England – time for him to bog-off?

Well, well, well, Mark Carney is in the news ‘again’ and stealing the headlines once more [this time by raising interest rates and then rubbishing BREXIT]– no surprise there then, as he is a ‘pig-headed’ self-publicist, and totally the wrong type of character for the man who is Governor of Bank of England [and Chairman […]

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 […]

The so-called ‘Health Lobby’ is under attack – but NOT by the gutter Press?

  It was of some surprise last Sunday, to read in a respected broadsheet newspaper, a major article attacking the Governments (some would say weak?) attempts to curtail the food industry’s continued flooding of Britain with unnecessarily over-sugared food and drink. It is hardly the responsible action of a major quality newspaper, to publish a […]

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 […]
