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. […]

His Summary comment sent to me earlier this morning, after burning the midnight oil is set out below and his full analysis […]

Never forget…

Posted on: 27th January 2019

We will never forget. Today, 27 January 2019, marks 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. 1.1 million Roma, Gypsies, gays, Jews were murdered there. Today marks the commemoration of the Holocaust and genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur. The language of hatred must never go unchallenged. Let’s […]

Defending to death Bozo’s right to bully

Posted on: 17th August 2018

“I disagree with what you say, but defend to death your right to make an ass of yourself”, said Oscar Wilde. It’s a fundamental British value to protect free speech. Which I’m afraid means we’re also obliged to even defend the right of privileged politicians who irresponsibly stoke prejudice by bullying the less privileged who […]

Taking back control of “our fish”?

Posted on: 2nd April 2018

Fishermen risk their lives to put food on our tables. So they don’t deserve to be deliberately misled, as they have been. I’ve always campaigned for an HONEST and DELIVERABLE policy for our fishermen; and have consistently opposed the irresponsible attempts of Conservatives and others to visit a cruel hoax on British fishermen. Like others […]
