It’s Nothing but a Witch Hunt !
You might’ve thought that ‘Witch Hunts’ belonged to, and ended with, the Middle Ages, but it appears that you’re wrong! First Donald Trump, and now Boris Johnson, are declared by themselves and their vociferously insuppressible devotees, to be the victims of ‘Witch Hunts’. Although, in these gender-sensitive days of ours, perhaps we should talk about…
Coronations, Vulgar Vandals, and National Heroes
In 1296, King Edward I, an egregiously greedy, vulgar vandal, stole the ancient “stone of destiny”, on which the kilted bums of successive kings had previously rightfully rested, while the crown of Scotland was placed on their heads. He put it in a bag marked “Swag”, and carried it off into England without a by-your-leave.…
Freedom of Speech
NOW, if this were Putin’s Russia, here’s the kind of statement that would merit at least 25 years in his equivalent of the Tower of London. SO, let’s all pledge our true allegiance to British freedom of speech. Long may it reign over us, happy and glorious !

If Beatrix Potter were still alive, she’d be checking through all these books about “Peter Rabbit”, just in case ! After all, rabbits are reputed to be a reproductively randy…
The Populist Plague
These ‘POPULISTS’. These men (as they invariably are) of ‘the people’, who claim to single-handedly and single-mindedly champion, speak for, and fight on the side of, ‘the people’. Who tell ‘the people’ whatever they think they most want to hear, totally irrespective of any genuine intention to make good on their protestations and promises. Whose…
Here we go again!
On BBC’s Question Time, a panel member says that Boris Johnson’s father’s alleged history of violence is ‘on record’ and calls him a ‘wife beater’. Unless and until that’s proven to be the case, neither you nor I can know its truth or otherwise. Ms Bruce, required to maintain required BBC standards of ‘balance’ and…
