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 […]

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 […]

‘Morals’ – where the hell did it all go wrong?

Our lovely Britain is gone forever, hasn’t it? Yep, modern Britain, though it remains one of the richest countries in the world (indeed in terms of total wealth it has been certainly classified 5th richest behind the US, China, Japan and Germany), it just isn’t a patch on what it used to be, unfortunately? It […]

Ramblings007 – Some past Comments from all around the World made on Posts here

[Many thanks to all this blog followers, & readers of these posts, and particularly those who have also chosen to comment on them over the past few years (just some hundred or so of those remarks which may interest you, are reproduced below)]   Education in the UK – still well below Par & going […]

BREXIT: Britain IS leaving the ‘European Union’ – but a DIVORCE?

  Well, just over ten months ago, the whole of the United Kingdom voted in a referendum and made a historic decision at last to leave the EU – the first country EVER to do so. One of the biggest drivers for that was the glaring fact that that democracy challenged outfit could not be […]

The Scots and another Independence Referendum – be scared of what you wish for?

What the Scots don’t understand is that the English are sick and tired of them as a nation banging-on about ‘independence’. You see, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind south of the border that the UK would be much better-off without Scotland so would be well shot of it, and indeed we would do […]

Big Charities – should YOU give them a penny?

     We are all constantly in the UK inundated, indeed well-so in our faces, with heart rendering pleas for us ordinary people (mostly working-class however because THEY are the most generous?) to urgently donate money to apparently needy and worthy causes, desperate for our hard-earned cash, aren’t we? We are told incessantly that even our […]

‘Loyalty’ and ‘Self sacrifice’ – replaced by ‘Unfaithfulness’ and ‘Greed’?

It must be strange for the current generation to hear the stories from the last one about society’s values in the times gone by, don’t you think? Those of us from that generation must often warmly recount our reminiscences, of not only what life was like and the way people were, in our prime time, […]

“BREXIT” – where the heck is it going?

  We all know that when you order a steak in a restaurant they always ask you “how would you like it”, don’t they? By that they mean of course, how would you like it ‘cooked’, and that is really all about how long under the grill or in the frying pan the chef leaves […]

The ANSWER to your weight problem – SOUP?

 verses   Many, many people struggle to control their weight, don’t they? Yep, sometimes they need to lose a few or more pounds and so embark on some kind of a ‘fad’ diet (mostly women though, as men are much more in denial about excessive weight, eh?). Other times, it is a matter of simply […]
