      Hubris Before the Fall

      by Finian Cunningham

      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.

      Boris for Brighter Britain

      by Jon Gaunt

      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.

      Holidays are Important – Tunisia was Top Drawer

      by Tommy Sheridan

      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. That helps to make the two-week break even more eventful, enjoyable and memorable.

      S-400 Ultimate Shoot-Down

      by Finian Cunningham

      The furious reaction in Washington to Turkey’s receipt of the Russian S-400 air defence system is motivated by several factors – all of which spell a heavy blow to US strategic interests.

      by Jon Gaunt

      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. Ooh diddum’s’!

      Idiots Driving World to War

      Like a person going up in an escalator while asserting they are going down, the British foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has a bizarre way of trying to assure Iran that war is not on the cards.

      Boris, Suspend Parliament Now!

      A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to grab a cheap deal and get away to Jamaica for a week. I really needed a break as I was quite literally fed up to the back teeth of the UK and our politics in particular.

      Hong Kong Protests: Let's Break With the Binary - and the Hypocrisy

      by Neil Clark

      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.

      Trump Raps ‘Little Britain’

      by Finian Cunningham

      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.
