Boris is correct, absolutely correct: it was a “stonking victory.” The best result since the Thatcher years and in the spirit of the Lady herself, after our troops retook South Georgia in the Falklands war, we should “Rejoice.”
The issue of Brexit has decisively won the day in England and Wales. But for Scotland and Northern Ireland – the other two nations that make up the United Kingdom – voters have become even more entrenched in their opposite position to remain in the European Union.
What a bittersweet experience here in Scotland! It is well past 3 am on Friday morning and the SNP results in Scotland are devastatingly good.
It’s been claimed that over 10m people have watched the video of Boris Johnson refusing to look at a photo of a little boy lying on a NHS hospital floor but one thing of great significance in the interview seems to have been missed: namely when the PM said wanted to get on and ‘turn this country around’.
A photo of a four-year-old boy on a Hospital floor is obviously distressing but how the heck is it Boris Johnson’s fault?
The heart-rending photograph of a little boy forced to sleep rough on a cold hospital floor because of bed shortages in Britain may cost Boris Johnson and his Tory party dearly.
This Thursday’s General Election should be a foregone conclusion. The Tories and their dishonourable, disreputable and despicable leader, Boris Johnson, should be electorally annihilated.
The wise words of the inimitable Oscar Wilde ring in my ears and urge caution as I write this column but the sense of anger and rage which courses through my veins and brain cells right now compel me to carry on regardless.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson just can’t help it. He’s a gaffe machine. Put him anywhere in public view and he’s a one-man factory for churning out embarrassing own-goals.
Do you really believe that this time next week Corbyn will be in Number 10 putting up his curtains and raising the red flag over Downing Street?
The splits and rancor at the NATO summit this week could not be concealed, even by strained calls for “unity”. The US-led military alliance is a dinosaur well past its extinction date.
There are uncanny parallels between the last time a general election in Britain was held in December, in 1923, and today. That poll was ‘won’ by the Tories, in the sense that they got the most seats, but it resulted in a minority Labour government being formed. Could lightning strike twice, all of ninety-six years later?
I invite you to compare and contrast the cases of Julian Assange and Anne Sacoolas. I can guarantee you will have heard of Assange and been invited to form an opinion of him which is wholly warped by a tirade of misinformation and coordinated smears designed to dehumanise the individual and make you believe he is a ‘weirdo’ and an accused ‘rapist’.
On the 2nd of December, 1973, a large crowd gathered on a cold winter’s day to witness the unveiling of a stone cairn erected in the centre of Pollokshaws in Glasgow to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of John MacLean’s death.
Channel 4 News is puerile, lefty biased nonsense and should not be funded out of the public purse BUT it should not be banned or taken off air.
The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall has been marked by some very simplistic analysis and lots of sweeping generalisations about the ‘evils’ of communism. A new book, on everyday life in Hungary in the 1970s and 80s, provides some counter-balance to the dominant narrative.
It is a ludicrous situation when anyone criticizing Israeli state violations against Palestinians or neighbouring countries is then instantly discredited as being “antisemitic”.
Religion and politics should never mix. I never listen to what religious leaders have to say about politics and am sick to the back teeth of dog collared Archbishops preaching on the TV or radio. They should stick to their pulpits and concern themselves with their ever decreasing and dwindling number of parishioners.
Ignore the predictions of the unreliable and rigged opinion polls conducted primarily by organisations owned and controlled by right-wing Tory millionaires more intent on shaping opinions than reflecting them; this current General Election is very much in the balance.
