On Brexit, the British Public Finally Turns on Would-Be Tyrant Theresa May

15.2.17

Please support my work as a freelance investigative journalist and commentator.   Last week was a particularly disastrous week for Parliament, when a horribly large majority of MPs voted to let Theresa May, the Prime Minister, do what she wants regarding Britain’s exit from the EU — and what she wants, as she has made […]

On Brexit, MPs Give Away Sovereignty, Vote to Allow Theresa May to Do Whatever She Wants

9.2.17

Please support my work as a freelance investigative journalist and commentator.   What a disgrace the majority of MPs have shown themselves to be, as they have voted, by 494 votes to 122, to pass the government’s derisory little bill allowing Theresa May to “notify, under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, the United […]

Trump’s Dystopian America: The Unforgivable First Ten Days

30.1.17

Please support my work! I’m currently trying to raise $2500 (£2000) to support my work over the first two months of the Trump administration.   Ten days ago, reality as we knew it seemed to disappear with Donald Trump’s inauguration, and the bleak, insular, threatening speech at its heart, which bore all the hallmarks of […]

YES! The Supreme Court Tells Would-Be Tyrant Theresa May That Act of Parliament is Required to Trigger Article 50 and Leave EU; Now MPs Must Fight to Scrap Brexit

24.1.17

Please support my work as a freelance investigative journalist and commentator.   Great news from the grown-ups in the room today — the Supreme Court — as the highest judges in the land have confirmed what the High Court ruled nearly three months ago: that the government cannot trigger Article 50 — the mechanism for […]
