Are your shelves half full or half empty?

As I dandered around my local supermarket this evening I couldn’t help but notice how starkly contrasted an experience it is now compared to this time last year. The sanitiser, the social distancing, the perspex screens and the masks. A year ago, such imagery would have been the work of a dystopian fiction, and toContinue reading “Are your shelves half full or half empty?”

The Del Boys of Brexit

Today should be a day of relative happiness amidst the gloom of 2020, but the stark reality is that more fog is descending upon us. Brexit Eve. A day years in the making is now on our doorstep. There is no point in trying to stop it any longer, the jig is up and now,Continue reading “The Del Boys of Brexit”

Patel and Bradley battle for political embarrassment.

For a party with an 80-seat majority, the Conservatives have racked up an error-stricken list longer than a Meat Loaf classic. However, the lack of judgement shown by MPs and Ministers alike is now growing to be such common practice within this government, that even the average politically minded onlooker can only muster a shrugContinue reading “Patel and Bradley battle for political embarrassment.”

A bad week for truth in the Tory Party

Rumour has it, Ben Bradley goes to bed wearing his homemade silk Ben Bradley MP pyjamas. Nobody has a higher opinion of the “first blue brick” than the Mansfield MP himself. Today, the Tory Party’s answer to Zippy from Rainbow appeared on the BBC to attack the National Trust for a report that simply toldContinue reading “A bad week for truth in the Tory Party”

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”

Cash for favours?

Robert Jenrick was ranked 3rd in the Tory Party’s “Hottest 40 under 40” at the annual Bullingdon Club shenanigans. No mean feat, especially given the number of high-profile guests at the shin dig. It’s a real hoot and no doubt one of the highlights of the year. Matt Hancock is Michael Gove’s lookout for hisContinue reading “Cash for favours?”

Tough luck, Rees-Mogg wants his majority back.

“We don’t give a fuck about the virus anymore” or so at least the message oozing from the Conservative government seems to suggest. Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, leader of the House of Commons and 2016 meme of the year, introduced plans to end the hybrid voting system, in fact MPs are voting on it as IContinue reading “Tough luck, Rees-Mogg wants his majority back.”
