Ask questions: when the news makes no sense

This week, here in Birmingham, we had two reports of ‘acid attacks’ being carried out. One in particular drew my attention. Initially I saw a Facebook post from West Midlands Police, which reported they were investigating an attack on a woman in the Ladywood area of Birmingham, who had had acid thrown at her by a passing moped or bike rider. It wasn’t until a … Continue reading Ask questions: when the news makes no sense

My vision of a post-Brexit Britain

My biggest criticism of Theresa May during the so-called Brexit ‘negotiations’ with the EU, is that with her being a ‘Remainer’, the woman has no vision or desire, or even imagination, to envisage what a future Britain could/should look like beyond our withdrawal from the EU.

Just a few hours later, it transpired that he had been found guilty and sentenced to 13 months in prison. In my opinion, this is an absolute travesty of justice. Why was he at … Continue reading Media silenced as Tommy Robinson jailed

Ramadan 2018: Terror season is upon us

In the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is their ‘holy month’, marked most famously by the fasting, then the feast of Eid that follows. It also oddly seems to be a period when Islamic terrorism rises to the fore, despite being such a ‘holy’ month where many Muslims become involved with charities, paying their ‘Zakat’, and generally reflecting on how grateful they are to Allah. This year, … Continue reading Ramadan 2018: Terror season is upon us

Brexit ‘rebranded’

Anyone who recently signed the Petition “Ensure that the U.K. leaves the EU Single Market & Customs Union.” will have this morning received the following response: The UK is leaving the EU’s Single Market and Customs Union. We are seeking to establish a deep and special partnership with the EU and a new customs arrangement outside the EU’s Customs Union. As the Prime Minister has … Continue reading Brexit ‘rebranded’
