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 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 […]

UK General Election 2017 ‘mayhem’ – a downright waste of time and an unnecessary squandering of a massive amount of EVERYBODY’S money?

Well, we are in touching distance of another General Election in the UK, aren’t we? Yep, less than three weeks, the party manifestos are all out now, as if anyone (except the political commentators, or even SOME candidates), actually give a dam, cares, reads them, or takes any notice at all of them, eh?), and […]

‘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 […]

President of France ‘Marine Le Pen’ [Front National] – unthinkable?

   Traditionally, we lot in Britain don’t pay much heed to what is happening in France or occurring election-wise there over the channel, do we? No, not least because it is a country full of the French who insist in talking French instead of English when we visit, they deliberately always have a different time […]
