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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]

DON’T criticise the JUDICERY –Judges will lock you up?

Unbelievably perhaps, the current President of the Supreme Court, indeed one Lord Neuberger, had the temerity to use the ‘media’ to criticise the ‘media’ for its coverage (though probably unfair and undoubtedly vitriolic) of the UK’s Courts’ interference in the Government’s triggering of Article 50, that was needed to ensure that Britain left the European […]

“O BREXIT, BREXIT, wherefore art thou BREXIT”?

  For the first time in more than 40 years, the population of the UK has been allowed to have its say on a major policy matter of great concern to us, when we were finally allowed to vote on being in the European Union – a political merger of countries that had metamorphosed the […]

After BREXIT bring back hanging – enact ‘another’ will of the British people?

  Well, it took us forty years to have our say on the European Union and be able to vote to get the hell out, hasn’t it? Yes, and apart from BREXIT, the other major matter where the will of the people has previously been totally ignored and constantly denied a voice by our elected […]
