Funding the UK State Pension is a historically nightmare – but now the ghosts of the dead are coming to haunt and destroy us?

 NO STATE PENSIONS LEFT Halloween may be nearly here again but the real frightening ghouls and spooks that Britain faces these days really arise from the past and the iconic universal State Pension that was introduced back in 1946 by the national insurance act, doesn’t it? Yep, the problem is that these days the cost […]

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 […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

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? […]

Those who now ‘trust’ Prime Minister ‘Theresa May’ on BREXIT – EXPOSED?

    In her 2 years at the head of government, with an unblemished record of ‘appeasement’ (at the EU & everywhere else), and her inexplicable embrace of mediocrity within her Cabinet, her Cabinet and other ministers biting the dust, rebellions breaking out on all sides, many many people in the Country, while admiring Theresa May’s resilience, […]
