Scrap the Dishonourable Honours System – Abolish the House of Lords

Sometimes words are woefully inadequate when you wish to express your utter contempt and disgust for someone or something. Stinking like an overflowing sewer is the news of Theresa May’s outgoing ‘Honours List’ https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/sep/10/theresa-may-accused-of-cronyism-over-resignation-honours. It is in the gift of outgoing Prime Ministers to reward flunkeys, friends and failed and flawed individuals with wee baubles or peerages which bestow letters after the names of the chosen ones or titles before them. Lord or Lady Muck or Sir or Dame Whatever is what these individuals become and it is pathetic to the core. The Honours System and the House of Lords […]

Boris Talks Pish – Flush Him Out of Office in November Election

I couldn’t believe my ears this afternoon, Friday 6th September. After an incredible week of political shenanigans in Westminster the political correspondent of the normally supine, obedient and thoroughly Establishment biased BBC blurted out the truth about Boris Johnson. It was an earth shattering moment for me. After a political lifetime of exposing how the BBC, and the rest of the mainstream media, consistently distort news stories, tell blatant lies and create contrived narratives which defend the rich and powerful at all costs here was a paid BBC lackey actually telling the truth: “Boris Johnson started the day in Peterhead, […]

No Mandate. No Morals. No Majority. – Bye Bye Boris

As I watched Boris Johnson present his G7 Statement in the House of Commons today (Tuesday 3rd September) and respond to questions I couldn’t get a particular question out of my head. Does Eton have a refund scheme? Johnson is the clearest example on the planet that the rich and powerful can purchase expensive and exclusive places in esteemed private education establishments but they can’t buy intelligence. The guy is a bumbling, stumbling and ineffectual fool. A clown who has been promoted way beyond his abilities and finds himself at a lectern built for adults and therefore not suited to […]

Prorogue Boris Not Parliament – Scotland’s Freedom Beckons

Proroguing parliament, suspending it from sitting, is in and of itself perfectly legal and normal. It is a standard practice to facilitate seasonal breaks, public holidays and party conferences. The extent of prorogation, however, is usually a matter of days or a couple of weeks at most. The period of prorogation proposed by Boris Johnson is the longest in the last forty years. In that respect it is not quite unprecedented but it is extremely unusual and certainly in the context of the October 31st No Deal Brexit deadline wholly undemocratic and deeply disturbing. It is normally a non-contentious and cross-party […]

Brexit General Election now Inevitable – Johnson Must Be Removed

Having never lived through a world war and the enormous uncertainties, surprises and instability such events inevitably bring in their wake I would have to suggest the current political situation in the UK is the most uncertain and unstable in my lifetime. The whole Brexit issue has challenged the hitherto comfortable political hegemony and status quo by pitching certain parts of the privileged elites who make up the British Establishment against each other. Make no mistake about it being pro or anti-Brexit is not a class question in the sense that support for or against a strike of organised workers […]
