“Identity Politics” – when ideologies collide

Over the last few weeks, Anderton Park Primary School in Balsall Heath, Birmingham, has been the centre of controversy, with a number of protests taking place against the teaching of LGBT awareness to primary school age children. The school is based in an area of the city with a predominantly large Pakistani Muslim population, so naturally the majority of children attending the school come from … Continue reading “Identity Politics” – when ideologies collide

Divide And Conquer: The Truth About Brexit

In 2016, the people of the UK were asked to cast a vote on Britain’s membership of the EU. The overall results were as follows:Leave: 17,410,742 (51.9%)Remain: 16,141,241 (48.1%)Total electorate: 46,501,241 Turnout: 72.2% A simple binary choice was given to the British people, should we stay or should we go? (to quote The Clash!) Admittedly it wasn’t a huge majority, and I now believe that … Continue reading Divide And Conquer: The Truth About Brexit

“Brexit fatigue” – sick and tired of our politicians and their lies yet?

It is ironic that M. Juncker is complaining of “Brexit fatigue”, while the British public are themselves becoming tired of the charade being played out in front of us, just going round and around in circles not getting anywhere. Theresa May desperately wants to get her Withdrawal Agreement signed off, so she can proudly announce that she has “delivered on the referendum result” and “achieved … Continue reading “Brexit fatigue” – sick and tired of our politicians and their lies yet?

The Brexit Party – or “Making Plans For Nigel”

In a blaze of triumphant glory, Nigel Farage announced yesterday that the all new “The Brexit Party” had been formally recognised by the Electoral Commission and would be ready to stand candidates in any forthcoming election. The party was founded with my full support and with the intention of fighting the European elections on May 23 if Brexit has not been delivered by then. I … Continue reading The Brexit Party – or “Making Plans For Nigel”

Brexit: “No Parliamentary majority for ‘no-deal'”?

Following the defeat last week in the House Of Commons of Theresa May’s “Withdrawal Agreement” (WA), our MPs are now insisting that the “no-deal” Brexit must be “taken off the table”. One soundbite we keep hearing is: “There is no majority in parliament for a no deal Brexit… “ Ahem, well actually there is. The invoking of ‘Article 50 of the Treaty Of The European … Continue reading Brexit: “No Parliamentary majority for ‘no-deal’”?

Sandwell: the one-party state

I spent much of my life living in Sandwell, a metropolitan borough in the West Midlands, sitting between Dudley and Birmingham. Although I was born in Dudley and lived there for four years, much of my life I grew up in Oldbury and Smethwick, before moving to Birmingham ten years ago in 2008. The Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell was formed in 1974, merging several boroughs, … Continue reading Sandwell: the one-party state

Angry Truck Driver vs Calais ‘migrants’

Sometimes it is interesting to view a video that presents a different aspect to the narrative that we are constantly force fed by our media. We all know about what the media tell us about the thousands of ‘migrants’ gathered at Calais in France, and we have no doubt seen the likes of Lily Allen shedding their crocodile tears while urging us all to ‘do … Continue reading Angry Truck Driver vs Calais ‘migrants’

Doctor Who: adventures in time, space, political correctness and diversity

Since I was a child, I have loved the adventures of “Doctor Who”, the longest running show ever and one of the BBC’s finest creations. For the uninitiated, it tells the tale of a ‘Time Lord’ from the planet of Gallifrey, who stole a time machine called the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions in Space) which was supposed to change its form to blend in … Continue reading Doctor Who: adventures in time, space, political correctness and diversity

Opinion Polls and the Sheep Mentality

How often do you see news stories beginning with ‘latest polls suggest…’, or ‘a new opinion poll reveals…’? Understanding that much of the mainstream media output is just propaganda, is a good starting point. Their purpose is to try and lead the masses into a particular way of thinking, always towards the outcome they are looking to impose. If the public can be tricked into … Continue reading Opinion Polls and the Sheep Mentality
