      Lewis Hamilton Goes for World Title Number Five

      by Neil Clark

      All eyes in motor sport this weekend will be on Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix, where Britain's Lewis Hamilton only needs to finish seventh to clinch his fifth Formula 1 world championship. That would put him level with 'El Maestro' Juan Manuel Fangio and just two behind the legend that is Michael Schumacher.

      by Jon Gaunt

      The Tommy Robinson circus rolled into town yesterday and the Fake News media were there to snort derisively at his supporters and treat Tommy as a bigger threat to our country’s security then the 20 child rapists he talked about in Leeds and Anjem Choudary put together.

      Champions Day at Ascot, Bold Czech Challenge and Football Predictions

      by Neil Clark

      The British Flat racing season reaches its end of season climax on Saturday, with Qipco Champions Day at Ascot. How will the big races pan out? Probably the most important thing to bear in mind is the going, which will be quite testing following recent heavy rain. Focusing on the soft ground specialists should, therefore, pay dividends.

      Harold Wilson is More Deserving Than Margaret Thatcher of Note Recognition

      by Neil Clark

      According to some reports, Britain’s new £50 note could have a picture of Margaret Thatcher on it. But if we are going to have a former P.M. adorning the currency, then Harold Wilson- who did so much good for ordinary people during his time in office, would be a far more appropriate figure.

      Self Serving Pigs

      by Jon Gaunt

      Years ago, I described MP’s as self-serving pigs with their noses firmly in the trough. People said I was over the top. Then the Expenses scandal broke and people began to see my point and yesterday the Westminster sty was high again with personal ambition, hypocrisy and lies as this “breed” continued to frustrate and deny the will of the people.
