After a brief interlude when a limited number of spectators were allowed back in certain ‘tiers‘, sport in Britain is now back to being ‘Behind Closed Doors’, that’s if it’s allowed to take place at all. How longer can it survive under these restrictions?
I fully agree with Pimlico Plumber boss Charlie Mullins who says ‘no jab no job!’ The usual suspects have gone into their self-righteous fury that he is trying to make Covid Vaccinations compulsory or mandatory when he is doing nothing of the sort.
The British Union is near to extinction. It hangs by a thread and within three weeks of a very uncertain year I state with confidence the exploitative entity called the UK will not survive 2021.
What an ignominious end to the Trump administration. Apart from the president being impeached for the second time, Trump’s top diplomat Mike Pompeo has been frantically sabotaging as many foreign relations as possible.
It’s getting nasty in “Trump world”. Anyone who doesn’t toe the line of pandering to the Liar-in-Chief is condemned as a traitor deserving a gory end.
Can we please stop talking about Boris’s blooming bike ride and concentrate on the real issues? Someone in government needs to take back control of this pandemic and make some tough decisions today.
The last five days have witnessed socially distanced picket lines across the UK and a wave of social media solidarity in support of the 7,000 gas engineers and call centre workers compelled to strike against the unacceptable, repugnant, and Victorian era employment practices of the UK’s biggest gas company.
Many commentators are dismissing the extraordinary events at the US Capitol as something much less serious than an attempted coup. Some have even joked about it as if it were a carnival of crazies high on Trumpism.
The oldest football knockout competition in the world, first played in the 1871-2 season, reaches its traditionally very exciting third round stage this weekend, with the teams from the top two divisions in English football entering the fray. Which sides are likely to go well?
Thank god that Donald Trump has now conceded and condemned the violent morons that invaded the US Capitol this week. However, Trump’s much too late “outrage” over what he’s describing as a “heinous” act does not clear him of responsibility for provoking this riot.
Many embarrassing questions are being asked about how thousands of Trump supporters – some of them reportedly armed – were able to over-run the seat of American government this week.
Like millions across the world, I was engrossed by the images broadcast by CNN and other mainstream media last night of the US Capitol building, the seat of American democracy, being invaded, vandalised, and its elected political occupants threatened.
No one wants a lockdown. No one wants kids to miss school. No one wants to lose our freedoms but 80 percent of Brits agree with Boris Johnson’s latest lockdown!
Nigel Farage’s call for the arch-globalist and serial warmonger Tony Blair to be put in charge of Britain’s vaccination programme is a massive own goal on a par with jeweller Gerald Ratner calling one of his own products ‘total crap’.
The US government attempt to have Julian Assange extradited to America to face 18 counts of criminality under the 1917 Espionage Act has been rejected in a ruling running to one hundred and thirty-one pages and four hundred and ten paragraphs.
For six years now, the British website Bellingcat has been peddling Ukraine's assertion that 'Russia shot down flight MH17'. With the start of the MH17 trial in March 2020 the self-proclaimed 'collective of researchers, investigators and citizen journalists' assumed a new role. They began ridiculing the defence attorneys and discrediting witnesses.
It will undoubtedly be remembered as the year of Covid19. The year of social distancing and unprecedented restrictions on personal freedoms. The year when isolation from extended family and friends was the norm.
CIA-backed death squads are running amok in Afghanistan, murdering civilians and terrorizing the population. When Joe Biden becomes president in three weeks, he should prioritize ending this “Murder Inc.”
It’s great news that the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine has now been approved. I cannot wait to get my sleeve rolled up and have the jab. What about you? However, why are we waiting to Monday to roll it out?
The world is a very different place at the end of 2020 than it was at the start. Let’s take a look back and remind ourselves how events unfolded.
