The Labour Genie got out of the bottle – will it go back in?

Herein lies the story of the Labour Party’s internal struggle since losing the General Election in May 2015  THE RED FLAG      out of pity, a gaggle of just a few silly but well intentioned Labour MPs from the Parliamentary Labour Party unwittingly let a malevolent sleeping gene out of its bottle, and couldn’t get it […]

The killers of the UK Labour Party – exposed?

    THE RED FLAG    The scene was set in last week’s blog The Labour Party’s health is in terminal decline – “Do Not Resuscitate”? about the demise of the once great British Labour Party.

The Labour Party’s health is in terminal decline – “Do Not Resuscitate”?

 THE RED FLAG  It is a very-very sad time for British politics as the Labour Party is now in its death throes and cannot ever be saved – it can never ever win another UK General Election. It has alienated itself from those who could support it and vote for it, hasn’t it? Oh yes, […]

TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – its got to be a joke, but it isn’t funny?

Later, sometime next year, our erstwhile MPs are going to decide about proceeding with the full Trident replacement at an enormous cost, that is likely to bankrupt this Country. The current Trident 1 has been operational only half a dozen years more than it took to get it into service in 1994, when it replaced […]

The ‘British Falklands’ – when are they likely to be renamed the ‘Spanish Malvinas’?

  Thirty three years ago today on 2nd April saw the start of a dreadful military conflict between Argentina and the United Kingdom over the South Atlantic Falkland Islands  – which are basically almost  the other side of the World (some eight thousand miles from us).

Are there any MAJOR heroes around – try the lifeboat men & women perhaps?

In our lives we are infrequently confronted with those who are deemed to be heroes – men & women who have through demonstrable valour, at the risk of life and injury, have conducted deeds that we common folk fear that our personal courage would have failed us miserably, don’t we? These individuals get rightful recognition, […]

“Great Britain” – NOT so ‘great’ NOT so ’britain’ is it?

Large areas of the World Map used to be coloured ‘pink’ to show that those countries ‘belonged’ to Britain. That means that we had sent out our ships & armed sailors and soldiers and conquered the local populations (slain or enslaved them into the bargain). Why did we do that? So we could steal all […]

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister Tony Blair – who do you despise the Most?

Our Labour ex PM Tony Blair (ten years from 1997) is in the news again – pontificating on the current crisis in Iraq. What he has to say may well be valuable and right – but who wants to listen to him these days? Do you? Can any of us trust a word that comes […]
