Many of us know of the phrase about men being from Mars and women from Venus, and ‘get’ the basic message that the sexes are a bit different, don’t we? However, many ignorant or discriminatory others take it a bit further than that – or to be more accurate they take the differences between men […]

Murdered, Raped, Molested, Beaten-up – so what, she’s just a prostitute?

The unfortunate women who turn to prostitution, sexual activity in exchange for payment, are publically and privately pilloried, and when they get savagely attacked and abjectly abused, they seemed to be portrayed as just worthless trash, rather than the tragic real-life victims they actually are, don’t you think? It is a source of constant annoyance […]

‘You don’t have to be Disabled to be Different – Everyone’s Different’ aren’t they? REPUBLISHED

Someone two days ago read this post I had published 5 years ago and I thought it might be worth others reading it and thinking about it as well? American Kim Peek was quite a ‘different’ personality indeed in the flesh. He had both amazing ability and commendable insight about life. He had a strange […]

As a democratic nation we value a free press, but not an irresponsible one – like their rash reporting of Jihadist terrorists, their atrocities, and their duplicitous supporters?

A a free press, not controlled or restricted by government censorship in political or moral or religious or other matters, which unrestrainedly publishes news, books and provides media facilities, remains a fundamental right of us in a free democratic nation, doesn’t it? Now, such journalistic freedom doesn’t come without a price unfortunately as it comes […]

Funding the UK State Pension is a historically nightmare – but now the ghosts of the dead are coming to haunt and destroy us?

 NO STATE PENSIONS LEFT Halloween may be nearly here again but the real frightening ghouls and spooks that Britain faces these days really arise from the past and the iconic universal State Pension that was introduced back in 1946 by the national insurance act, doesn’t it?

Talk of transgender, transsexual and gender self-identification – what a load of cobblers?

A major debate is raging in England just now over ‘proposed reforms’ to the gender recognition act (GRA) of 2004, while most of us have no idea what the hell that is all about nor what is going on now, do we? Well, what we ought to know though is that the blood-sucking lawyers are […]

RUSSIA is a ‘disgusting’ country under Putin – AMERICA is a ‘disgusting’ country under Trump

Putin                   Trump   There is an idiom truism saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but nevertheless that certainly doesn’t apply when it comes to the ‘elected’ leaders of certain countries does it, eh? No, and that applies in modern times to both Russia and unfortunately, now the United States of America as […]

England organ donation ‘DEEMED CONSENT’ is likely to FAIL in practice and thousands more will needlessly die – our Government needs to fix it NOW?

Those of us who actually care about saving the lives of those blighted people in our midst who are desperately waiting for an organ transplant had our spirits lifted a year ago at the Tory Conference when our Prime Minister Theresa May backed the change in the Law to introduce organ donation in England by […]

DIETS: Vegetarian, Pescatarian-vegetarian, Ova-Lacto-vegetarian, Lacto-vegetarian, Ovo-vegetarian, Vegan – the World gets increasingly madder?

The US  Impossible Burger, a plant-based imitation that bleeds and sizzles when it cooks, coated in coconut oil to give a crunchy outside, and with a pinky soft middle, that includes the characteristic taste and aroma of meat. [The term ‘vegetarian’ should not be applied to foods that are, or are made from or with […]

Muslims have been welcomed into our British society but we don’t want to see the ‘burka’ or ‘niqab’ here thanks – BAN THOSE NOW?

      They say that ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has stirred-up a hornet’s nest by ridiculing the wearing of the ‘full face veil’ burka – what a load of tosh, eh? The anti-Boris crowd, egging-on elements of the sensational press, are making a mockery of what was a sensible and balanced article that Johnson wrote […]
