The Prime Minister used to be the most powerful person in the UK Parliament–is it now the Speaker?

A chaotic, mayhem, bedlam and more, of pandemonium has been going–on in Parliament about the suitability of the current Speaker of its House of Commons no less, one John Bercow. Now you see, there has been the credible exposure of Bercow himself as an ‘accused’ long-term serial bully in an oppressive environment where a sizeable […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

The Osborne Budget 2015 an amazing ‘fireworks display’ – or a ‘damp squib’?

  Well, well, well, George Osborne presented his last Budget of this Parliament. like a magician in a black cloak, pulled comatose rabbit after rabbit out of a top hat to the tumultuous applause of his Conservative parliamentary honourable friends (MPs) – mind you they would have cheered if he had announced that they were […]

The Budget TOMORROW – what can you expect then ?

With most Budgets everyone in the UK is in a state of panic to second-guess the Chancellor’s intentions, aren’t they? The worry for most of us consumers in the population was that he (there have been no she’s) would tax or increase tax on something important to us – should we rush to the off-licence […]

George Osborne’s Budget March 2015 – his last or not?

  On next Wednesday, Chancellor Osborne will rise and stand at the House of Commons Despatch Box to deliver his next budget speech – but will it lead to his dispatch from the job, you might be thinking? You see, this budget is the last chance for the Conservatives to attract and bribe voters with […]

UK Anti-Semitism, UK Anit-Islamism – who’s fault is that?

In the UK Parliament House of Commons both the Prime Minister David Cameron on his report on the Brussels European Council conference on combating extremism, and then the Leader of the Labour Opposition Ed Miliband, condemned anti-Semitism in Britain. This emanated from a statement about Gaza and Israel’s horrific killing of well more than two thousand […]

Governor of the Bank of England – Canadian Mark Carney a ‘disaster’?

There can’t be much doubt that when Tory Chancellor George Osborne bounced up in the House of Commons to announce his bombshell appointment of Canadian Central Bank Governor Mark Carney (ex Goldman Sachs and an educated economist certainly) to the top post of ‘Governor of the Bank of England’, that it was a political appointment, […]

Newark By-Election 2014 – are you prepared to be shocked?

  Well the news that there would be an unexpected by-election in Newark, within ‘God’s county of Nottinghamshire’, probably didn’t initially interest most of us – we don’t live there do we? The need for a new MP came about because the Conservative MP Patrick Mercer was caught out (BBC Panorama) surreptitiously taking money for […]
