‘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 […]

Britain’s wonderful NHS has just had its 70th birthday – will it still be with us to see its 80th?

  There was much flag waving and badges wearing four weeks ago when the National Health Service turned 70, as understandably it was a big opportunity to celebrate, wasn’t it? Some of us though instead had a tear in our eye. That was because we have been around a long while, we have been there since […]

The undemocratic, out of date, unelected, unrepresentative, overpopulated ‘House of Lords’ – it needs to go NOW?

   BEST EMPTY The British Government with due diligence is trying to extract the UK from the European Union with the maximum benefit and least harm, in accordance with ‘the will of the people’ as clearly expressed in a country wide EU Referendum two years ago. The current Conservative government are in the challenging process of negotiating […]

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 […]

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’ […]

The United Kingdom Miner Strike 1984 – time surely for a ‘Full’ Public Enquiry?

  Some thirty years ago the British coal miners went on strike. The miners were a large group of workers admired by the general public for their courage working in dangerous conditions miles underground, their backbreaking hard work in foul gruelling environments, their contribution to our Country in providing a main source of energy, their […]

The Liberal Democrats – Leaderless and Pointless?

  Oh yes, the LibDems screwed-up their legacy big time five years ago, didn’t they? They fancied another go in government and against all their principles got into bed with the Tories, eh? They thought they could get something valuable out of it all, but acts of prostitution rarely deliver that, do they? The biggest […]

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 […]
