Gaily across the zebra crossing

12th February 2020 12

At last, gay people can cross the road! It took a long time, but a more tolerant and diverse society has embraced LGBT pedestrians, with the help of progressive local authorities.

Some … [Read on]

Oh I do like to migrate to be beside the seaside

2nd January 2020 7

Oh, how the people took their revenge. Among the many MPs booted out at the recent general election was Stephen Lloyd, whose seat the Tories regained from the Lib Dems. Two years previously, Eastbourne was one of several losses for Theresa May’s mismanaged administration. Having alternated between orange and blue since the IRA assassination of Ian Gow, this Sussex town … [Read on]

Brexit is not leaving

5th December 2019 8

This Thursday Boris expects you to give him the parliamentary majority he needs to GET BREXIT DONE.  Of course, we all know that his ‘oven-ready’ deal is merely a reheat of Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, which Boris had denounced as a dog’s breakfast.

The editors of the British Dental Journal should watch their back after publishing a letter by S Worthington, who rather dissents from the progressive agenda: – ‘Sir, I have been asked to consider wearing a rainbow lanyard at work to send a clear message of support to the LGBT+ community…I became concerned about the potential distress to other patient groups … [Read on]

However, being of Remain disposition in a Leave community, MP Nick Gibb is not to everyone’s satisfaction.  How … [Read on]

We may scoff at the rabble of Democrat challengers for the US election next year: fake squaw Elizabeth Warren, boring Joe Biden, woke contenders such as Kamala Harris and the ‘last saloon’ socialist Bernie Sanders. Take a step back, and see how they pale in comparison to Barack Obama. Yes, I know, conservatives are not expected to appreciate Obama. His … [Read on]

No stuffing your face with a big Mac on the 8.15 to Waterloo

13th October 2019 6

Dame Sally Davies, the government’s chief medical officer (or chief inspector of the Nanny State), is going out with a bang. Obesity, a crisis as deadly as climate change and Brexit, must be tackled by a tightening ratchet of controls on what, where and when we can eat. Among other interventions, blokes will be banned from scoffing a half-time pie … [Read on]
