‘Theresa May’ Prime Minister 2019 in an attempted abuse of Parliamentary Practice is stuffed by ‘Erskine May’ Clerk of the House of Commons 1844 – it took the Government by surprise, eh?

     PM Theresa May has brought her “meaningful vote” motion to the floor of the House of Commons three times: first last year on 11 December but then pulled the vote when she accepted that she would lose massively, she prevaricated for a month and brought it back on 15 January, only for it to […]

The Country is in Turmoil, the Government is Incompetent, the Prime Minister is Delusional, the Cabinet is Defunct of collective responsibility, Tory MPs’ rebellious behaviour is Anti-democratic – any wonder BREXIT has been torpedoed by Remainers?

Three times now PM Theresa May has brought her dreadful Withdrawal Agreement to the House of Commons, and twice she has asked Parliament to vote for it and each time she has left with a flea in the ear – told in no uncertain terms that it was totally unacceptable to both Remainers and Leavers, […]

What do UK Prime Ministers tell the British people when it comes to the European Union – a pack of bloody lies?

There can be little doubt in anyone’s mind that British politics has indeed been dragged into the gutter, surely? Now, its demise is not simply at the hand of one political party [though Conservative, Labour and LibDems have certainly played a substantive role, eh?], nor is it down to an individual nor even a group […]

“England is the ‘mother’ of parliaments” [1865) or “England is the ‘witch’ of parliaments” [2019] – courteously of BREXIT?

SPITTING IMAGE [John Major the real culprit] Britain was once renowned worldwide for its representative parliamentary democracy, but no longer – that guiding beam which has shone-out from our Westminster lighthouse for more than 150 years, has been well and truly extinguished, hasn’t it? In Britain we now have a Prime Minister who is arrogant, […]

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 […]

The French now admit that the European Union is going down the khasi – does the United Kingdom still want to vote to stay in?

 EU flag British prominent pro-Europeans won’t have it that there is a life outside of the European Union, will they? Some people however can still remember when we weren’t actually in even  the Common Market, or to be more precise EEC (the baby form of the European Union), because we didn’t want to join in […]

Britain’s National Lottery ‘lotto’ a national treasure – or a total disgraceful scam?

  Surely last night’s lotto draw summed it up – a manipulated shambles? The official and published rules were changed, without consultation with anyone, because the operator is a law unto themselves, aren’t they? The new Jackpot rule was only suddenly widely publicised a week or so ago – when needs must, eh? Our supposedly […]

British membership of the European Union – time to give notice?

Most British people have no idea how we got into the European Union, or what it means, but know only that there is big support for us to cancel our membership and leave (and that the United Kingdom Independence Party are pressing for us to do just that). The United Kingdom is supposed to be […]

A Nursing ‘national disaster’ heading for the United Kingdom’s NHS – oh, that was the headline 3 years ago? Or was it 20 years ago?

   Our beloved NHS is seen now to be chronically short of British nurses, and this has badly affected hospitals’ performance, patent care, morale, and not least financial budgets. Did we not know that was coming then? We certainly did, didn’t we? All those in the know were vitriolic in their public warnings that the […]

The Bedroom Tax – the most divisive charge since the Poll Tax?

  The Poll Tax and the Bedroom Tax certainly  have two things in common – first, they go under popular & common descriptive rather than official & correct names,. and second when introduced they were utterly despised by the general population (the ‘well-off’ were big supporters of both though, weren’t they?). The Poll tax was […]
