The 'likeable', error prone 'Jack the Lad' image conceals the conniving, deceitful politician. Laura Kuenssberg, the Political Editor at the BBC has managed to interview Boris Johnson regularly over the last few months - always managing to put a favourable spin on an incompetent public speaker. Quite an achievement, considering Johnson's inability to string a … Continue reading The reinvention of Boris Johnson.
The 89 year old German woman starts her two year sentence for asking too many questions. Described by the Daily Mail and many others as the 'Nazi grandma', despite no connections to neo Nazi organisations, German authorities have recently imprisoned her for 'Holocaust denial'. I attempted to look her up on youtube. So what is … Continue reading Ursula Haverbeck goes to jail.
The shooting down of a Russian jet suggests the US has supplied terrorists with manpads. If it weren't the Americans directly, it will have been authorised by them. The worlds passenger jets have just become very real targets with the use of the lethal surface to air portable hand held missile system. The weapon is … Continue reading Just when you thought the Americans had reached the limit of their stupidity………
The majority of British police now think they should be armed. The continued use of excessive force during armed confrontations indicates that British police and firearms don't blend well. A suspect has been killed today in an operation involving numerous armed police and it's apparent that this particular victim was never going to to escape … Continue reading Shoot first, ask questions later.

I don't travel on trains much but these talented musicians would certainly brighten up any journey.
Boris Johnson confirms unquestioning support for US aggression. Jeremy Corbyn would explore every diplomatic avenue. At last we have a choice in a General Election. Boris Johnson's declaration to support the US, who are threatening illegal attacks on a sovereign nation without any significant evidence, was an unusually honest statement from a politician. Theresa May … Continue reading UK Election choice.

His profile claims: 'Lister also managed nearly three years of intensive face-to-face engagement with the leaderships of over 100 Syrian armed opposition groups'. That's quite an … Continue reading Charles Lister.
There really is a choice this time....At least in principle. The polls show Theresa May well ahead of Jeremy Corbyn and she has seized on the chance of (what she will see as) an easy victory. If it's down to mainstream media, it will be easy. They will all support the Conservative Party and ridicule Corbyn, … Continue reading UK general election set for June 8th……
Different reaction from the US when it's their allies who are doing the the killing. No media mention of 200 missing women and children kidnapped by ISIS/Al Nusra in the Foua attack.
