Political Parasites Paid £323 a Day – Unemployed Paid Less a Month

If you are not appalled by the news that an unelected, unaccountable and unproductive lackey in the House of Lords is now entitled to a DAILY Allowance greater than the MONTHLY pay to a Universal Credit claimant then you are not listening, brain dead, heartless or a combination of all three afflictions. The House of Lords is the most expensive day care centre for elderly cronies, failed politicians and friends of the powerful in the UK. It accommodates over 800 members carefully selected for their contribution to massaging the egos of Prime Ministers and/or making huge financial contributions to political […]

Thatcher Had Her ‘Vegetables’ – Johnson Has His ‘Poodles’

To understand the crux of Thursday’s much vaunted Cabinet re-shuffle by Boris the Dictator it is necessary to recall one of the finest satirical sketches in political caricature history. In the mid-1980’s, with the brutal Mrs Thatcher at the height of her prowess as the Iron Lady who had conquered General Galtieri of Argentina, and the National Union of Mineworkers during a twelve month long struggle that was accurately described as ‘a civil war without the bullets’, the Spitting Image team had the Thatcher Puppet at the head of a dinner table surrounded by her cabinet colleagues. The script went […]

April 6th Is an Historic Day in Scotland – First Minister Must Call IndyRef2

Scores of Twitter Followers and Facebook Friends have messaged me over the last twelve days seeking my response to the much trailed keynote speech delivered by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on Friday 31st January in Edinburgh concerning the next step in the Scottish independence campaign.

Bernie Sanders Can Win – Bernie Sanders Must Win #Bernie2020

I have been a long and consistent supporter and admirer of self-declared socialist politician Bernie Sanders, the United States Senator for Vermont. He should have been the Democratic Party candidate against Trump in 2016 but for blatant cheating by the Democratic Party elites and hierarchy who fixed the nomination process to allow the weak and tarnished Hilary Clinton to face up to Trump. Trump lost the popular vote by more than 3 million four years ago but such are the vagaries of the US Electoral College system that Trump with his consistent association of Clinton with the Washington political elite, […]

Trump Middle East Plan Extinguishes Any Hope of Palestinian State

The next seven days will effectively define whether the United Nations and the rule of international law are any longer relevant in a twenty first century world dominated by the global bully on steroids, the United States of America. In the week beginning 10th February the United Nations Security Council will meet to discuss the extraordinary, outrageous and unprecedented plan for the future relationship between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. I refuse to call it a “peace plan” because that would be a perversion of the English language. It is not remotely designed to promote ‘peace’ in the Middle East […]
