The Westminster Horror Picture Show – The Ayes To The Right

westminster

Reading Time: 4 minutes It is hard to fathom what is happening at Westminster. Watching Boris Johnson’s address to the House of Commons, in staccato – almost Churchillian – fashion, made me realize that I did not have a clue on how to feel about the horror picture show that we are all being forced to endure. Boris Johnson […]

Return Of The Hooligans – Ann Widdecombe In Europe

hooligans

Reading Time: 3 minutes It was an outburst that initially made me laugh, such was the clumsiness, inaccuracy and frankly vaudeville nature of Ann Widdecombe’s rant at the European parliament. Having heard that she is unrepentant and will not apologize in the least for her pathetic performance that was so out-of-place in Strasbourg, I now not only feel embarrassed […]

Ann Widdecombe – Science May Cure Being Homosexual But Brexit Won’t Cure Being British

widdecombe

Reading Time: 3 minutes Ann Widdecombe’s rant at the European parliament was just about par for the course for someone so openly patronising and who firmly believes that science has the cure for homosexuality. I am all for vivid analogies, strong language, and somewhat controversial views. God knows my posts do tend to ramble on with poetic soliloquies and […]

Auschwitz – Des Gens Ordinaires, Des Vies Extraordinaires

Reading Time: 5 minutes Un sentiment étrange, ma première visite en Pologne. C’est le pays de mon père, mais une terre où il a perdu sa famille et ses racines.

Why It’s Time For The UK To Leave The European Union

Reading Time: 5 minutes In times gone by, the European Union was something that was never mentioned in rural England, despite its continuous presence. Like a morning mist that never lifts, the scent of the EU lingered daily above the Yorkshire dales, well into the afternoon before briefly disappearing, only to return with a vengeance at dusk. Since the […]

If Jeremy Corbyn’s The Answer To Brexit, What The Hell Was The Question?

Reading Time: 4 minutes   The Labour priority is to negotiate a trading relationship with the European Union to protect jobs and to defend the living standards that we have through regulation, but also to make sure that the jobs in the manufacturing industry and in food supply chains are protected. – Jeremy Corbyn   For a man who […]

A Second Referendum? Why Not Make It The Best Of Three!

Reading Time: 3 minutes This post will probably amuse the few and infuriate the many. But I’m entitled to my alternate views since, having been disenfranchised for one referendum, I certainly don’t want to be disenfranchised a second time. So please spare me the embarrassment of a second EU referendum and besides, the first one was bad enough. Putting […]

“Just A Minute” – Two Years To Talk About Brexit Without Hesitation, Repetition Or Deviation!

Reading Time: 4 minutes Brexit is so blank, just anybody can talk about it without hesitation, repetition or deviation, and still not know what the hell they’re going on about.   Rumours have it that Brexit day may be delayed for up to two years, which will give dear old Theresa May enough time to hold as many general […]
