Marzipan Man to Borissimo’s rescue.

The British Media is one known for its generally right-wing bias, so when the typically conservative paper The Spectator whips up a headline of “WHERE’S BORIS? – A GOVERNMENT AT SEA” then we should acknowledge that maybe the Prime Minister is not doing his job very well. But in fairness to BoJo, how good aContinue reading “Marzipan Man to Borissimo’s rescue.”

“F**k the law, we won the bleedin’ war dontcha know?!”

Hagrid appeared on everyone’s social media today as he came out in defence of the ever-present clickbait queen, JK Rowling. Yes, Robbie Coltrane now felt compelled to weigh in on the matter of the existential crisis facing this generation’s attitude problem, “They wouldn’t have won the war, would they?”. Coltrane is 70 years old. MeaningContinue reading ““F**k the law, we won the bleedin’ war dontcha know?!””

The Hokey Pokey Draft Agreement

Thrown to the wind for a couple of months due to COVID-19, the Brexit boomerang has come home once again, covered in bird shit, battered beyond belief and in the hands of one of the most incompetent PMs ever. Ah, it brings you back.  The standard patriotic verbatim was duly rolled out once again, “BritainContinue reading “The Hokey Pokey Draft Agreement”

Just can’t kick the Abbott

One thing that the Cummings cartel have been very good at during the last number of weeks is keeping controversial appointments relatively under wraps. It is no great secret that Cummings has always yearned to rip the heart out of Whitehall and replace those with a history of diplomacy and expertise with bippityboppoty computer scienceContinue reading “Just can’t kick the Abbott”

Eyes on the prize of 2024.

If a week is a long time in politics, then four years is an eternity. Barring some exceptional circumstance wherein we face an election sooner, it is four years until the Great British electorate will see the inside of a polling station to choose their Westminster representatives. It is safe in this knowledge and withContinue reading “Eyes on the prize of 2024.”

Britain hurtling headfirst towards Trump’s dystopia

David Cameron and George Osbourne were two of the most insufferable humans when they presided over Britain as Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer. I remember I used to get so angry watching them tear the two Eds (Miliband and Balls) limb from limb on the floor of the Chamber and thinking they hadContinue reading “Britain hurtling headfirst towards Trump’s dystopia”

Don’t forget your shovel if you want to bike to work.

ALERT! ALERT! STAY ALERT! This is the new message from the British Government today as they try to gradually ease lockdown restrictions and remedy the economy. But there is a danger that this message in itself may cause an internet block as everyone in the UK rushes to begin to try and purchase night-vision goggles,Continue reading “Don’t forget your shovel if you want to bike to work.”

Gone is the bravado which defined PMQs of the past decade.

This morning, as I try to every Wednesday morning, I tuned into Prime Ministers Questions, the great charade of British politics, the superficial epithet of executive accountability, the midweek circus of Westminster. However, as well as the chamber being notably absent of MP’s, there was a more noticeable absence – the bravado and ostentatiousness whichContinue reading “Gone is the bravado which defined PMQs of the past decade.”
