Trump protests are counterproductive

Posted on: 6th June 2019

I understand why many chose to boycott or protest against Trump. However, I fear it’s counterproductive. It has the opposite effect to the one the protestors/boycotters desire. Trump may go back to the US with an impression he’s not universally adored throughout the UK, but he’ll have dominated the news and with sky-high public relations […]

The Euro results weren’t just a bloody nose for the Conservative Government. It was a also a thumbs-down for Brexit. Bad news for Brexit Underlying the predictable media hype for the Brexit Party lurks an inconvenient fact… …that support for Brexit has fallen. The BBC/Press Association produced this chart. Correctly not allocating votes for Labour […]

Posted on: 20th May 2019

A former Labour MP and good friend, Andrew Mackinlay, contacted me this evening to say he’s encouraging Labour supporters to vote Liberal Democrat in Thursday’s Euro poll. He gave me the following statement: Andrew Mackinlay, who was for 18 years the Labour Member of Parliament for Thurrock, has urged Labour Party Remain supporting members to […]

Euro elections – send a strong message – vote Liberal Democrat

Posted on: 17th May 2019

This election sees the strong return of the Liberal Democrats. It’s a golden opportunity – to send a strong message to Westminster. The UK is a country of lions led by donkeys. This Government has turned the UK into the world’s biggest laughingstock. The Conservatives have spent three years faffing and in-fighting. They offered multi-million £ ferry contracts to companies with no ferries. […]

Brexit – a deliberate ploy to avert attention from a climate of chaos?

Posted on: 9th May 2019

The 3 pro-Brexit Parties – Conservatives, Labour and UKIP – got their comeuppance from voters in last week’s local elections. Anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats did remarkably well, even in Leave voting areas. And anti-Brexit bed-fellows the Green Party also did very well. PM Theresa May concluded that voters were telling her to “just get on with […]

Young people – our climate conscience

Posted on: 6th May 2019

Really encouraged to meet students at Cape Cornwall School and at Mounts Bay Academy. All so very interested, engaged, committed. Our discussion? Climate Change. Many had gone on School “Strike” to protest that their parents and grandparents generations had let them down. Had left them a legacy which threatens their future and of thousands of species […]

Talking of dividing people…

Posted on: 25th April 2019

…if the purpose of the Conservative Government’s policy on the EU was to divide people, promote division to the point of the break-up of families, growing intolerance and threats, the risk of the break-up of the UK and visceral disputes which will take at least a generation to heal, then it’s been a phenomenal success!
