Ex-International Wales Footballer ‘Ched Evans’ is found ‘NOT GUILTY’ of Rape– is the case an example of rape ‘miscarriage of justice’?

  Well, many of us were not surprised, even if still shocked, last month by the latest verdict concerning Ched Evans’ disgusting sexual exploitation of a vulnerable woman [reportedly blind drunk (possibly drink spiked), who had no recollection of her mistreatment] at the invitation of one of his footballer mates, weren’t we? The situation behind […]

The British Justice System and Ched Evans – how does it work?

Ex-Sheffield United and Wales footballer Ched Evans has had his 2012 conviction for rape overturned by the Court of Appeal in a handed-down judgement a few days ago, so currently he has not been found guilty of that offence and his sentence no longer stands. However, he has not actually been acquitted either, and still […]

America ‘State of the Union 2016’ – what was that all about? [UPDATED]

   Anyone this side of the pond who as interested observers waited-up into the early hours of the morning last week to listen to President Barrack Obama’s 7th and final State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress (and guests), probably wishes that they hadn’t bothered, eh?

Just keep in Mind

(all puns intended!) There is an unfortunate bad public attitude to mental health problems & issues in this country. Physical illness even of the most embarrassing nature is readily accepted by all and sundry, but mental health deficiency is a definite no go area – it carries a stigma. This is deep-seated and emanates from […]

Abuse of the Benefits System et al

The problem with Britain is that we don’t as a people have any common sense. We plough ahead with good ideas and well intentioned actions without also keeping our feet on the ground. We never seem to take a step back, or look at the big picture, or realise that we can’t see the wood […]
