UAFA Nations League and England get ‘outplayed’ against a top side (Spain), followed by being ‘dismal’ in a friendly (Switzerland) – all preceded AGAIN with a ‘head-in-the sand’ view of the team’s abilities?

          Well, only the football focused will have known, seemingly out of the blue but actually four years ago, that a ‘third’ men’s national-team full international tournament for the 55 members of UEFA (the sport’s European governing body) had been put in place [the other two being the existing World Cup and the […]

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 United Kingdom’s ‘unfair’ Bedroom Tax –has it now become the ‘illegal’ Bedroom Tax?

  The last British Government (a coalition headed by the Conservatives) introduced in 2013 the nicknamed Bedroom Tax on the poor, which has been widely condemned for being unjust and a politically contentious policy by those on the moral high ground. The tax has reduced housing benefit for all individuals who rent a Council or […]

FIFA & World Football is in the mire through corruption -but is the FA & English Football in the mire through incompetence?

      If there is one thing we all do know about football, it is that it is now in total turmoil. Yes, but whose fault is that then, or who played a part in it? Well what you might consider perhaps is that the English FA are somewhat implicated? But not through skulduggery […]

England’s only now phasing out free plastic bags – a mammoth parliamentary scandal?

A week on Monday the English shoppers are in for a shock – albeit only a little shock for now though. The free re-usable plastic shopping bag is going to be compulsorily charged-for at 5 pence each – BUT only by the BIG-boy retailers. Oh yes, over the past fifty years the ‘single use’ ‘free’ […]

Corruption on a rampant scale is simply a way of life in many places – including FIFA [Fédération Internationale de Football Association]?

  Nobody with any insight will be surprised that FIFA has been labelled the home of massive corruption. No, the real surprise is that someone has gathered together the necessary legal evidence and actually done something about it – fourteen arrests of executives and officials to date no less, with seven senior football officials collared […]

UK General Election 2015 fiasco – electoral reform well overdue?

    The only thing that is evident from the build-up to this 2015 General  Election is that our voting system is no longer fit for purpose, don’t you think? Not only is our ‘first-past-the-post’ system predicted to produce another ‘hung parliament’ (with seemingly only complex possibilities for producing a stable government), but it is […]

General Election ‘Manifestos’ – just Promises. Promises, Promises?

      Well, well, well, some parties so called Manifestos are out this week. Should we have expected them to be jammed full of surprises? No, not really, the only real surprise is that they didn’t appear at the start of the campaign nor even earlier, don’t you think? [MANIFESTO:-     Plaid Cymru (TWO WEEKS […]

Mass Murders abound and we ‘know who they are’ – why are they still at large?

    Oh yes, to avoid any doubt here we are now talking about the tobacco industry’s barons in particular, but also of course about their employees, promulgators, fellow-travellers, apologists, smugglers, and counterfeiters. These cretins involved in that vile pseudo-legal drug trade pull in their millions & ill gotten gains, as their ignorant victims stupidly […]
