8.3.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Congratulations to the House of Lords, where peers, by 366 votes to 268, have voted to give Parliament a veto over the final outcome of Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations, while voting against another amendment to allow a second referendum.

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

15.2.17

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 […]

4.2.17

Please support my work as a freelance investigative journalist and commentator.   OK, I admit it: I’m thoroughly fed up with the Left in Britain, which largely supported the campaign to leave the EU, and is now facilitating Theresa May’s efforts to destroy our economy by following through on the outcome of the ludicrous referendum […]

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 […]
