The Oxfam scandal has exposed the Charity Sector charade – has the bubble finally burst?

          Just 2 years ago a post here ‘Charity, Overseas Aid, Volunteering – all worth it or not?’ outlined and identified how the major charities had simply become major cash-cow “businesses”, run and staffed by fat-cats each raking in hundreds of thousands of pounds in salaries, expenses and accommodation costs, from the over-generous British […]

The ‘Universal Credit’ benefit, together with the rest of the UK’s welfare system, is a national disaster – TIME to start ditching the whole bloody lot?

The terminal state of the British welfare state is ample summed-up by the furore that has arisen daily in recent weeks both across the airways of TV, Radio & Newspapers, and at Westminster about the ‘Universal Credit’ benefit now being widely rolled-out across the UK, wouldn’t you say? The cries from far and wide are […]

UK car insurance is an increasing nightmare – particularly for the young driver?

In general, in modern day “rip-off Britain” consumers are increasingly getting fleeced by suppliers whose prices are escalating at many times the rate of inflation, aren’t they? That is not more so than in the case of car insurance, where in general in just a decade it has escalated-up almost one-hundred-and- twenty percent, indeed? Nowadays, […]

Obesity in Children – disgraceful parental neglect?

This is a follow-up post to that titled ”Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?” which was published here last week. Those who have read the earlier post would know about the disastrous course for the Planet that mankind is set on regarding overpopulating it and into the bargain […]

Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?

  There can be no doubt about it in anyone’s mind can there? There is an epidemic of obesity sweeping the World that is threatening our human existence with extinction and indeed survival of this very planet, isn’t there? The increasingly heavy burden on the world’s population imposed by obesity affects both rich and poor […]

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, […]

Labour ‘s distressing death throes – coming soon in Stoke and Copeland?

         Two of Labour’s MPs resigned their seats last month to gain more meaningful employment, as they knew that their Party and therefore themselves had been given the last rites by entrenched high priest leader Jeremy Corbyn. Consequently, that has resulted in two by-elections coming-up on the same day in a couple of weeks’ time […]

On the same day as ‘Copeland’, we will have the ‘Stoke’ by-election – just the start of Labour’s catastrophic collapse under Corbyn?

A very recent post here [A new by-election looming at Copeland – a further humiliation heading for Corbyn’s “Zero Percent Labour”?] suggested that Labour are completely ‘out of touch’ with their voters so can’t be trusted by them, so may lose that seat which they have held for over 80 years. Exactly that same judgement […]

A new by-election looming at ‘Copeland’ – a further humiliation heading for Corbyn’s “Zero Percent Labour”? UPDATED

UPDATE 24 January 2017 Labour’s candidate is ‘Remainer’ Gillian Troughton, who is both an avid supporter of open borders, and a fan of Corbyn to boot. Labour will be lucky to get even second place, don’t you think? —ooo— January 18 2017 Well, we have the situation here where Labour’s Jamie Reed MP is jacking-it-in […]
