The Labour Party died years ago, the LibDems are terminally ill, the Brexit Party suffered a cot death, the Tories now have dictatorial power, the Union is threatened, the EU still regulates – UK politics in freefall?

   There have been a number of posts published here about the sad death of the British Labour party after one hundred and sixteen years, and indeed it was a full 4 years ago that one recorded it facing the last rites prayers following Jeremy Corbyn’s longest Shadow Cabinet reshuffle in British history. Some six […]

The 2019 UK General Election polls predict the result – DON’T BELIEVE IT?

Well, the Election is finally upon in the morning except of course those that have already postal voted – many fraudulently, perhaps? Recently, every day or other day recently a contradictory election poll was published, wasn’t it? Why was that, and were they worth reading anyway, eh? Well for start, there is a inherent error […]

The polls close on Thursday at 10pm for the 2019 UK General Election – when though will you get the result in your constituency?

It would seem that some authorities take an excessive time to obtain and count our votes in the UK General Elections, don’t you think? How comes it takes only an hour or so in some places and some twelve hours in others, eh? Logic makes one suspect that it is down to the diverse size […]

An essential guide to the UKs 2019 General Election – a brand new Christmas ‘Panto Day’ production?

  It’s probably many years since most British voters attended a traditional Christmas pantomime, but most will remember the excitement as children watching and vocally participating, singing along, booing and shouting, “he’s behind you” as the baddies came on stage Unfortunately, in this latest panto there simply are no goodies, but only the acts of […]

Remember, remember, the fifth of November – in truth ‘Guy Fawkes’ came to be toasted as “the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions”

The ancient Palace of Westminster was in 1605 a jumble of medieval buildings [this drawing is of the foundation plan]   Today 5th November is of course Britain’s day of celebration of an event of 414 years ago, when a group of English plotters’ attempt to blow up the then house of Lords and its […]

Boris’ BREXIT Halloween Trick or Treat – TRICK?

   Tories still unreliable to deliver proper BREXIT    

Three successive British Prime Ministers [Cameron, May, Johnson] have told the Country they had succeeded with EU negotiations – LIARS?

     It isn’t just in this century that our Prime Ministers have tried to hoodwink the British public over Europe, is it? No, but probably the most disastrous example in memory is back in the 1930s when Germany embarked on a power grab of other European countries to create its first version of the […]

Can we expect Boris Johnson to deliver BREXIT – probably NOT [at best it’s BRINO]?

When Boris Johnson stood for the Tory leadership in June, he did so on a platform of ‘Theresa May’s deal is dead and the UK would leave the EU on 31 October’, didn’t he? Yep, it may have secured him a landslide victory, but the news on the wires is that to all intents and […]

‘If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas’ – yet ‘Mo Farah’ claims he is being victimised?

For scholars, the equivalent quote to ‘if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas’ in Latin would be qui cum canibus concumbunt cum pulicibus surgent, both of which provide the sound advice of being cautious of the company you keep, as associating with those of low reputation may not only lower your […]

The unelected and unaccountable UK Supreme Court’s outrageous constitutional decision – Boris Johnson is ‘GUILTY’ of breaking a law it has only just invented?

ABANDONED (but only ‘temporarily’) the longest sitting parliament for 400 years We ordinary laymen don’t know much about the machinations of the law, and indeed our interests are generally restricted to avoiding any infringement, however minor, on the criminal side of it, but it is becoming increasingly evident to us that the judiciary here are […]
