It's Saturday 27 May and the seemingly interminable British #GE2017 campaign trundles on.The last 48 hours have been notable in so far as the corporate MSM and social media spotlights have concentrated on the utterances of one J.Corbyn, putative...

Time here in Britain seems to have slowed down since Monday. We were even granted a little welcome respite until Friday 26th from the interminable otiose cant of  party political electioneering. Though of course, PC metropolitan elitist prejudices and...

For quite some time now,the intellectual capacity of the individual UK citizen to express their political preferences via the ballot box, has been called into question. Last year's EU Referendum campaign became characterised by the increasingly...

I'm writing this blog post on May 16, that's 23 days shy of General Election Day here in the UK. And that is an awful lot of Mainstream Media ( MSM ) filler. The contrived controversies over minor variations in otiose and largely ephemeral policy...

When the fire alarm goes off and you know that there isn't a fire it sets your expectations for the next time.And then the fire alarm goes off and there still isn't a fire. It's a faulty alarm system that no one responsible for its maintenance can be...

Now that Right and Left - those moribund descriptors of late 18th.century French revolutionary politics- are no longer relevant or applicable, it is invariably those who were once identified with the " Right " that are increasingly Right on economic...

The trouble with obituaries is that if you write them too early you end up looking a right prat should the putative deceased not actually then go ahead and pop their clogs.  That said, in the wake of May 4/5th's various English and Welsh local county...

To-day is May 3rd. The British Electorate goes to the polls on June 8th. The cretinous, the stupid and the woefully incompetent are all set to continue engaging in a hugely meaningless spat and exchange of vacuous platitudes for quite some time yet....

It was always going to be this way.  The result of the EU Referendum in favour of #brexit was never going to be accepted,let alone tolerated as even remotely legitimate by those forces gathered and united under the Remain banner. #LabourIn and...

June 8 is still a bloody long way off at this point in time, and there is much mischief, misinformation and downright lying to be done by the parties, that is all of the Parties, in this general election campaign. Remember that 200+ #Labour MPs....

Having manufactured and assiduously promoted the straw man of Russian electoral skulduggery, the Democrats and faux-progressives have been hoist by their own petard. We are now seeing an enhanced version of US foreign diplomacy which invariably begins...

There is something ineluctably disturbing, frightening indeed, if one were given over to actually being susceptible to such feelings, about the self-styled Remain campaign. I'm sure the Papists and their deluded and cretinous acolytes and lackeys made...

History can be a pretty unpleasant and unforgiving phenomenon, especially if you happen to be caught up right in the middle of one of its more visceral convulsions. But that is History. It is futile to pretend that some ethereal dispassionate calm and...
