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?

Ukraine – should we prepare for War?

    Did you know that a couple of weeks ago the Russians sent two bombers (one nuclear carrying) over to the UK?

Barack Obama weak & ineffective – the worst US President in memory?

There is no doubt that African American Democrat Barrack Obama gained the forty-fourth Presidency of the United States six years ago on a tumultuous wave of euphoria.

British General Election getting closer – be afraid everyone?

  Oh yes the next Election is now just seven months off. The Chinese have a thing about the number 7 don’t they – it’s a ‘lucky’ number you see (auspicious), but it isn’t looking so lucky now though for the three main political British Parties is it? Seven months to go and all three […]

Labour cannot be trusted to run the British economy, so say the Tories – how about the Conservatives themselves then?
