The London Tower block fire – the outstanding community spirit and unbelievable grief will subside only to be replaced by increasingly great anger?

Last Wednesday morning many of us woke-up to the dreadful scenes on television of a London twenty-four storey tower block containing some hundred-and-twenty flats, entirely engulf in flames. It was clear to us all then that there was very little hope for many of the 400 or more hundred souls, men women and children who […]

The English certainly gave Theresa May a General Election bloody nose – but did the Scots gave Nicola Sturgeon a much bigger comeuppance?

The dust hasn’t yet completely settled, but there is no doubt about it, that Prime Minister Theresa May’s judgement in calling a snap General Election has turned out to be very suspect – though it certainly didn’t look much like a two-way gamble when she placed her roulette bet, did it? Riding high on the […]

Julian Assange has escaped justice – but whose fault?

Well now, the bulk of the UK’s population probably don’t even recognise the name of Julian Assange, or even if they do, they nevertheless still wouldn’t know what he might or might not have done wrong, would they? To start with, it is important to be acquainted with the reason this man has come into […]

The British General Election 2017 ‘SHOCK RESULT’ – a total disappointment all round?

  The CONSERVATIVES HAVE ‘NOT’ WON THE GENERAL ELECTION 2017 WITH AN ABSOLUTE MAJORITY! THE LABOUR PARTY HAVE ‘NOT’ WON THE GENERAL ELECTION 2017 WITH THE MOST SEATS! This General Election outcome is nothing short of a disaster for this Country as it creates an unstable uncertain environment with the next government, whoever that turns […]

The ‘Civil Liberties’ of Terrorists – much more important than the ‘Lives’ of innocent British men, women, and children victims?

A further terrorist plot succeeded in London last Saturday night – no surprise there then as we all knew that the authorities aren’t actually in control of that aspect of our lives anymore, didn’t we? How did we know, then? Because they have told us so, and told us so, time and time again, haven’t […]

The UK General Election – an eccentric loser verses an accomplished survivor?

In only a couple of day’s time, the people of this wonderful Country will have decided its future at one of the most crucial times in its history, won’t they? Yep, that is because the UK currently faces a major challenge to its whole future economic success when negotiating its extraction from the European Union, […]

A Drug-Takers Paradise – the UK?

Drug misuse England in 2015, some two-and-a-half thousand drug misuse deaths (highest level ever recorded) and in 2015/16, twenty-four thousand drug-related hospital admissions [mental health, behavioural disorders, poisoning (a dramatic increase over a decade)]. In England & Wales, at the last count there were around nearly ‘three million’ silly adults still taking illicit drugs. Even […]

Theresa May’s snap Election gamble – where’s it all going to end?

The British General Election is one week away TODAY, folks! While Theresa May clearly has a credible (if not terribly valid?) excuse for calling a snap General Election 3 years early, in saying that she “changed her mind” to get a much needed clear ‘public mandate’ for BREXIT because the other parties were railing against […]

The aftermath of Manchester’s grief – needed words of wisdom and comfort?

   Twenty-one years ago, in Manchester, England, on Saturday 15 June 1996 in the very late morning, a bombing attack was carried out by the Provisional Irish Republican Army. They detonated a 1,500-kilogram truck bomb on Corporation Street in the centre of Manchester [the biggest ever bomb the IRA ever exploded on the British mainland, […]

‘TOMORROW’S MAN’ at Arsenal Football Club – ‘STILL’ Arsène Wenger?

As many who follow football will know, a football Manager’s job is unbelievably ’unsafe’ – they ALL end-up getting sacked, you see? Now sometimes that is even within a timescale counted in days from appointment, though of course that is quite unusual, though NOT unique! Terminations happen at EVERY bleeding club, BIG or SMALL, whatever […]
