Hubris is usually a forewarning of impending calamity. Extreme arrogance blinds the hubristic person to the limits of their power. So, blindly, they push on with reckless excess, leading to potentially disastrous results.
I absolutely adored Boris Johnson’s optimistic vision for Britain speech on Wednesday night. He has many faults but he is bang on the money when he waves a kipper and declares that we have a very bright future out of the EU.
Sadly not every family looks forward to this time of year as much as mine. We are in the relatively privileged position of being able to afford a family holiday each year and we share the delight with our in-laws and their children.

Get ready for the hypocritical outpouring of sympathy for Theresa May in the next few days in the MSM. It has already started on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation and Sly News with personal interviews with the gurning face of the vicar’s daughter expressing her sadness that she didn’t push her Brexit betrayal through.

The 22nd anniversary of Hong Kong's handover from Britain to China has been marked with anti-government demonstrations and a crackdown on protestors. The protestors' grievances shouldn't be brushed off, but UK government's stance smacks of hypocrisy.
The extraordinary war of words between the US and Britain has demolished the long-held notion of a “special relationship” between the two states. President Trump has made it cringingly clear that Britain is not all that “special” and that its government can be treated like a mere vassal.
When did our man in Washington, Kim Darroch, join the BBC?
The dark soul of UK Incorporated was exposed in glorious fashion yet again in the contrasting responses from the political elites in Westminster to two big stories.
'Someone must have been slandering Josef K, for one morning, without having done anything wrong, he was arrested'.
It becomes clearer every day. The stench of desperation emanates from the pores of the staunchest Union defenders like sewage from a damaged sceptic tank. The British Union is in its death throes. Independence for Scotland is now more certain than ever.
Britain’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned China of “consequences” over its handling of violent protests in Hong Kong.
