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 […]

The North Korea has moved inextricably towards deliverable nuclear warheads – the potential consequences?

 verses   There has been a ‘war of words’ between North Korea and the United States which has been dire in recent weeks, and as recounted here in a recent post earlier this month, President Donald Trump has both embarrassed himself and America by his stupid participation in it all, even unnecessarily enflaming it at […]

‘Aggressive’ North Korean despot ‘Kim Jong-Un’ has called the bluff of ‘Bigmouth’ American President ‘Donald Trump’ – a further humiliation for the World’s most powerful man?

Last week, the post here outlined why it was now time for war with North Korea because it is intent on completing their acquisition of nuclear status, further developing their intercontinental missile delivery system to be capable of hitting the likes of New York or London with a massive nuclear bomb, and then undoubtedly embarking […]

North Korea– time for war?

Just four months ago a post here “North Korea conflict – an insolvable problem, other than war?” posed the question if another Korean war was impending and in the making, didn’t it? Well, we now have the answer we all didn’t want TO HEAR and that is “YES”, wouldn’t you say? Certainly, North Korea seem […]

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 […]

Tim Peake the ‘first’ British astronaut – what is that all about?

Major Tim Peake ex-army man is being lauded as making history this morning as a first British astronaut and the one to serve on the International Space Station (ISS) when he blasted-off in a Russian Soyuz rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan – but it is all a bit of a con really to make […]

American space rocket blows up on launch 2014 – and we still believe they went to the Moon in 1969?

1969 2014 A couple of days ago the USA’s unmanned cargo new rocket, heading for the International Space Station blew-up a few seconds after lift-off.

The Internet, the World Wide Web, Web Pages, e-Mail, Search Engines, Google, Smart Phones, Broadband, Catch-Up TV, On-Line shopping, Satellites – what the hell is all that about then?

In the so called “developed” countries we benefit from (suffer from?) a great deal of technology these days. In some other counties they can lead a more normal simpler life can’t they? Most of us don’t understand the bulk of it – and why should we – but surely we are just forced into making […]

Destruction of the World’s Wildlife – is ‘Homo sapiens’ next on the list?
