Imprisonment without trial – the UK’s mortgage “affordability” scandal?

     There is a tribe of some 150thousand home owners who are held as ‘mortgage prisoners’ by their lenders’ eye-wateringly high interest rates – locked-into standard variable rate (SVR) of around 5% from a time when Bank Rate even went as low as 0.25%. [and with standard mortgage rates soaring way above the UK […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

Britain’s wonderful NHS has just had its 70th birthday – will it still be with us to see its 80th?

  There was much flag waving and badges wearing four weeks ago when the National Health Service turned 70, as understandably it was a big opportunity to celebrate, wasn’t it? Some of us though instead had a tear in our eye. That was because we have been around a long while, we have been there since […]

The London protests against a ‘disgraceful’ Donald Trump – “disgraceful”?

  A previous post here “Donald Trump ducks his London visit – ASHAMED?” January 13, 2018 by dadman007 outlined the general adverse attitude of people in Britain to US President Donald Trump, with some reasons why. However, it was made plain nevertheless that while many of us don’t have any respect for the man, or what […]

American President ‘Donald Trump’ meets North Korean ‘Supreme Leader’ ‘Kim Jong-un’ – triumph or disaster?

  A post here in March “American President ‘Donald Trump’ verses North Korean Supreme Leader ‘Kim Jong-un’ – the fight of the century?” outlined the situation with a then proposed meeting with North Korea and the prospects of a successful outcome Well, last Tuesday, Donald Trump, an overweight [if not obese] fast-food addict [not least burgers […]

The UK Trident nuclear missile programme staggers-on regardless – sucking the life out of Britain’s military might?

   A post here “TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – its got to be a joke, but it isn’t funny?” November 22, 2015 by dadman007, set out the folly of going ahead with a new Trident system that would not only bankrupt the Country, but would prevent us in future having a proper Army, Airforce or Navy. Well, […]

An individual from a dysfunctional family joined in matrimony to a person from another equally dysfunctional family – a most Royal wedding indeed?

  Lunchtime a week ago yesterday brought onto the television screens of the World, the eagerly anticipated and awaited grandiose wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry [33] and American actress Meghan Markle [36], didn’t it? The couple were conferred with the title of ‘Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ by the Queen that very day – only the second […]

Two people kidnapped, subjected to extraordinary rendition, and then tortured in ‘Libya’, with British connivance and foreknowledge – Labour’s Blair and Straw both knew [or should have known]?

Last Thursday week was one of the most ‘shameful’ days in British history – and yet it hardly got a column inch in many popular national newspapers let alone a front-page headline – shame on them too! That was the day that the Government of the day finally admitted in Westminster’s House of Commons, the […]

Donald Trump may be seen as a ‘despicable’ president of the United States – but he’s spot on the button about ‘Iran’?

    Some three years ago America organised a so-called “peace” deal with rogue state Iran (known as Persia before 1935), supposedly to stop them becoming a ‘nuclear power’, in exchange for six world powers [the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany] unfreezing $100 billion of Iranian international assets, cancelling the punishing & biting sanctions […]
