Donald Trump may be seen as a ‘despicable’ president of the United States – but he’s spot on the button about ‘Iran’?

    Some three years ago America organised a so-called “peace” deal with rogue state Iran (known as Persia before 1935), supposedly to stop them becoming a ‘nuclear power’, in exchange for six world powers [the US, UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany] unfreezing $100 billion of Iranian international assets, cancelling the punishing & biting sanctions […]

Billions spent in UK December sales- where the heck is the money all coming from?

London West End Boxing Day Billions upon billions Much of the population in Britain are financially feeling the pinch in these difficult times of austerity. Making ends meet has become a major struggle and many families are relieved to get to the end of the month and still be solvent, aren’t they? It comes as […]

Why Britain MUST have the Trident replacement – NOT?

Fat Man A-Bomb Nagasaki Trident launch     Britain already has a shed load of nuclear bombs. The current method of attack delivery is the submarine Trident system, but after thirty five years this is nearing its ‘best before’ date. The cost of replacement (a hundred billion pounds over forty years?) to be operational in […]

Britain was an original Nuclear Power – so let’s keep Trident?

Fat Man A-Bomb Nagasaki Trident launch Seventy years ago Britain played its full part in the US dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan, wiping out a quarter of a million people, (half of them slowly) and mostly civilians [the standard military excuse of ‘collateral damage’ won’t wash on that one will it?].  Somehow or […]

The biggest spittoons in the world – our football pitches?

  Spitting is the act of collecting spit (saliva) in the mouth and then forcibly expelling it as a gob using air from the lungs. Expert spitters can gather a sizable amount of spit and can accurately direct it at great speed to yards distant. [Such spitting should not be confused with something like cherry-pip […]

Treatment of depression in hospital patients – depressing?

  Depression is certainly a growing problem in society and unquestionably within the UK, don’t you think? We individuals are not very good at dealing with others’ depression though, are we? No, it is a mental illness you see, and we really can’t cope with that kind of thing can we? Physical things we are […]

“RESPONSIBILITY” – no such word as far as British parents are concerned, eh?

In the UK fifty or sixty years ago the average parent would have been mortified if their children got into serious trouble with the police or authorities, or indeed caused any kind of mayhem in their community. Oh yes some of the kids did it, but mostly naughty things (like knocking on peoples doors) rather […]

Consumer Protection in the UK – they must be having a laugh, surely?

In years gone by (decades now) the British authorities saw an essential need to protect the ordinary working person from the sharks of the world that set out to rip them off, cheat them, defraud them, or sell them inferior, dangerous or shoddy goods. It all used to work quite well here didn’t it? Consumers […]

Populations everywhere are growing like ‘Topsy’ – who will put a stop to it?

The human population of the World has reached well over seven billion now [that is a snapshot say of 7,293,109,900] and increases by two or three babies a second [indeed the population has doubled in fifty years]. This population trend has far reaching implications for our descendents – the facts are that more people are […]

Barack Obama weak & ineffective – the worst US President in memory?

There is no doubt that African American Democrat Barrack Obama gained the forty-fourth Presidency of the United States six years ago on a tumultuous wave of euphoria. It was achieved through the will of the people and his supporters’ clever use of the internet for fundraising and to galvanise support countrywide. Obama’s oratory was commendable, […]
