Sack Cummings – His Illegal & Irresponsible Actions Deserve Punishment

As I was writing this column the arrogant piece of work who leads the publicly funded gang of SPADS (Special Government Advisers) within Boris Johnson’s government has been supported despite his flagrant flaunting of the Covid19 rules he himself was involved in devising. In the face of all the undisputed evidence Johnson has shielded his chief Aide Dominic Cummings and illustrated clearly that the Covid19 rules are only for the plebs, not for those with power and influence. For the avoidance of doubt Cumming’s ‘crime’ to me was the 260 miles drive from London to his parent’s home in Durham […]

Johnson and Tories are Serial Liars Without Compassion or Care for Others

Watching Boris Johnson perform at Prime Ministers’ Questions in Parliament yesterday sent a shiver up my spine. His blustery deployment of drivel and garbage with the aplomb of a Vaudeville veteran bellied the serious deceit and cold, callous cruelty which his comments were drenched in. This is a Prime Minister who has lied every step of the way during the Covid19 health crisis. He was well warned about UK unpreparedness for such a serious public health pandemic and glibly and wilfully ignored those warnings and then tried to prevent the public from finding out those warnings existed and they had […]

Celtic Crowned Champions – 9 In A Row Yet Again!

Glasgow Celtic have been officially crowned the Champions yet again. The decision is the right one and was greeted with joy and jubilation across most of Glasgow and much of Scotland as some semblance of normality amid the Covid19 lockdown was restored. A truly remarkable feat has been achieved. The football team that has a tradition of making history has done it again. They were the first to achieve the incredible honour of winning nine league championship titles in a row between 1965 – 1974, equalling the then world record number of consecutive titles (jointly held at the time by […]

Bin Billionaire Bailouts – Covid19 Aid Packages Must Have Tough Conditions

One particularly ugly feature of the Covid19 crisis is the sight of tax dodging billionaires lining up with grubby demands for state bail outs and/or soft loans from central government despite their long and sordid records of avoiding any tax contributions over many years. Billionaire tax dodgers are nothing but shameless cheats who should be shunned and shamed for their selfish actions in denying vital health services and schools billions of pounds of funding. Every pound the billionaires dodge in taxes is literally stealing from hospitals, classrooms and social care services. Yet many of them are honoured by the British […]

The Film Jaws Offers Splendid Metaphor for Actions of Johnson

It was no surprise to find #BorisHasFailed trending on Twitter across the UK just before 8pm last night and Not In Scotland trending in Scotland. I watched the Boris Johnson show at 7pm with a mixture of rage and pity. Rage that this man is able to claim the mantle of UK Prime Minister and secure prime time TV to pontificate on a pandemic he has so spectacularly failed to deal with properly since the start of January this year, and pity that he is so obviously out of his political depth that it would be no surprise if Boris […]
