The bright future offered to the next generation – vape yourself into addiction and possible death?

If there was any doubt in your mind about our MPs at Westminster being a total waste of space and a brainless bunch, they have certainly dispelled it last week with their announcement that ‘vaping’ should become the acceptable face of smoking, and indeed funded by us taxpayers. The gaggle of village idiots who have […]

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 […]

‘England a Nation of Shopkeepers’ – replaced by ‘Britain a Nation of Gluttony & Sloth’?

The UK is the Leader in Europe once again! Shame on us all! We are officially the most obese country in western Europe. [Obesity has tripled here over past 30 years, for god’s sake]. But how the hell has that disastrous situation come about, eh? Is it an illness epidemic? NO, but it is certainly […]

The Oxfam scandal has exposed the Charity Sector charade – has the bubble finally burst?

          Just 2 years ago a post here ‘Charity, Overseas Aid, Volunteering – all worth it or not?’ outlined and identified how the major charities had simply become major cash-cow “businesses”, run and staffed by fat-cats each raking in hundreds of thousands of pounds in salaries, expenses and accommodation costs, from the over-generous British […]

Research into Alzheimer’s has stalled – is that the end of all hope?

It will not have escaped the notice of all elderly people and their families that after some twenty years of significant involvement, the world’s biggest drug company Pitzer has just 10 days ago announced terminating its research into dementia and Alzheimer’s, and has also pulled the plug on its work on Parkinson’s, as well, which […]

Obesity in Children – disgraceful parental neglect?

This is a follow-up post to that titled ”Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?” which was published here last week. Those who have read the earlier post would know about the disastrous course for the Planet that mankind is set on regarding overpopulating it and into the bargain […]

Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?

  There can be no doubt about it in anyone’s mind can there? There is an epidemic of obesity sweeping the World that is threatening our human existence with extinction and indeed survival of this very planet, isn’t there? The increasingly heavy burden on the world’s population imposed by obesity affects both rich and poor […]

Big Charities – should YOU give them a penny?

     We are all constantly in the UK inundated, indeed well-so in our faces, with heart rendering pleas for us ordinary people (mostly working-class however because THEY are the most generous?) to urgently donate money to apparently needy and worthy causes, desperate for our hard-earned cash, aren’t we? We are told incessantly that even our […]

“Standing on the shoulders of giants” – who said that and why?

Personal modesty about one’s achievements is not something we see much of today, is it? It seems to be only the really great people of the past who seem to display that trait, don’t you think? Nowadays the ‘performers’ prefer to make grandiose boasts (often false) from the rooftops, eh? English genius scientist & mathematician […]

Computer use in Nuclear Reactors – are the Chinese coming?

  Fifty year old Hinkley Point Nuclear power station being decommissioned [to be replaced by the Chinese] It can have escaped few people’s notice that the inscrutable Chinese president Zi Jinping was yesterday commencing his State visit to us in the UK, can it? It included of course a ceremonial welcome, a massive gun salute, a […]
