Theresa May: An Unstoppable Undemocratic Disaster in a Dismal Brexit Britain Without Adequate Opposition

20.4.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Since Theresa May triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty three weeks ago, starting the two-year process of the UK leaving the EU, based on a slim majority in a referendum whose outcome was not legally binding, I have withdrawn into a protective shell, […]

5.4.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Back in November, I was delighted to take part in a fascinating day-long event in Brockley, the Brockley Festival of Ideas for Change, featuring 16 speakers from the local area discussing pressing issues of our time from a left-of-centre perspective. The day was […]

On Brexit, the Observer Pulls No Punches With a Suitably Savage Editorial Just Before Theresa May Triggers Article 50

28.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   It’s nine months since normal life in Britain came to an abrupt end after the EU referendum, when, by a narrow majority, 37.4% of the eligible voters in the UK voted to leave the EU (while 34.7% voted to remain, and 27.9% didn’t […]

See my photos on Flickr here! Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   On Saturday March 25, 2017, I joined tens of thousands of supporters of the UK remaining in the EU in Parliament Square, at the rally at the end of the Unite for Europe march that began at […]

London Terror Attack: I Endorse Simon Jenkins’ Mature and Responsible Assessment of the Media’s Dangerous and Irresponsible Coverage

24.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Note: This article is largely derived from comments I made on Facebook yesterday — but I realise not everyone who reads my work is necessarily on Facebook, hence my reworked posting here. In what I intend to be my only comment on Wednesday’s […]

Unite for Europe: Join the National Demo in London on March 25 to Tell Theresa May That 16 Million Of Us Don’t Accept Her “Hard Brexit” Insanity

20.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   This coming Saturday, I hope to see as many of my British friends and readers as possible on the Unite for Europe march in London, the last protest before Theresa May triggers Article 50 (as she has just announced she will, on March […]

My Heartfelt Defence of the Wonderful NHS, Exactly Six Years After My Major Illness

18.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Exactly six years ago, my life changed drastically when I was hospitalised, for 12 days, as doctors with the NHS tried — and eventually succeeded — in working out how to save a number of my toes, which, over the preceding months, had […]

Rebel Music: Memories of St. Patrick’s Day in London, 1986

17.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   31 years ago, I made a discovery that had some serious resonance for me — the existence of St. Patrick’s Day. It was March 17, 1986. I’d moved into a flat in London three months earlier, in December 1985, opposite the George Canning […]

Worthless MPs Refuse to Challenge Tyrannical Theresa May on Their Own Right to Vote on Final Brexit Deal or on the Rights of EU Nationals in the UK

14.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Another day, another thoroughly depressing example of why, in the post-EU referendum era, the House of Commons seems intent on proving that it no longer has any worth. In the last two weeks, peers in the House of Lords have voted for two […]
