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 […]

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 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, […]

A Terrorist attack in London – the naivety of the response?

Just two weeks ago, about this time on Wednesday afternoon, a lone-wolf deranged Muslim terrorist, no doubt inspired by others and terrorist propaganda, carried out an 82 second attack at the heart of British democracy in Westminster London. The atrocity started with him deliberately mowing down crowds of many dozens of pedestrians on the pavement […]

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 […]

Christmas is over for yet another year – but who’s Christmas was it though?

/>   In decades well gone by, Christmas (in Britain anyway) was about TWO things and those two things were ‘GOD’ and ‘CHILDREN’, weren’t they? Yes, and it was a time also when families made a big effort to get together to celebrate the event over the holiday period as well, didn’t they? Well, what has […]

Finally the sentence is delivered for murderer Oscar Pistorius –about time but another travesty too, surely?

Reeva Steenkamp murdered by Oscar Pistorius Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to only 6 years in jail for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp – an insult to common justice, surely? Any hope and prayers we might have had for Judge Masipa to do what is right to administer justice for Reeva Steenkamp, were dashed again […]

Oscar Pistorius in Court AGAIN to face South African Justice – WHAT Justice though?

Reeva Steenkamp murdered by Oscar Pistorius Its déjà vu time again isn’t it with Oscar Pistorius back in court facing once again sentencing for his crimes? This time for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp. Oh yes he was there before for the exact same reason 2 months ago, when he was simply released on further […]

Murderer Oscar Pistorius still remains free – are we surprised?

Reeva Steenkamp murdered by Oscar Pistorius In early March the post ‘Convicted Murderer Oscar Pistorius finally bites the dust – or will he really?’ suggested that many of us would be unsurprised if his smart-arsed legal eagles pulled another smart card from their sleeve, to get him some special kind of dispensation and treatment – […]
