The Government must learn lessons from pandemic failure

Posted on: 17th December 2020

Many thanks to our expert panelists at last evening’s Covid “Lessons learned” Webinar. We can see why Conservative Ministers have been so keen to avoid even a quick Public Inquiry so that we can learn important lessons to improve on the UK’s shockingly poor handling of the pandemic and the tens of thousands of avoidable […]

Working together – best way to combat pandemic

Posted on: 31st October 2020

It’s time for all parties to come together for the good of the country. I’ve called for this before. But it bears repeating again now. Our country needs a cross-Party, cross-Parliament but most importantly genuinely science-led coalition to take over and get on top of the pandemic. All the signs are that it’s taking another […]

Conservative MP should have an honest debate about breaking treaty obligations

Posted on: 19th October 2020

It’s time the local Conservative MP apologised and came out of his bunker to face an open public debate of his conduct and voting record. I’ve been accused by one of Conservative MP’s local Conservative Party campaign managers of likening his Conservative Government with Nazi Germany. The confected outrage was no doubt dreamt up to […]

Large Parliamentary majority will deliver “oven-ready” deceit

Posted on: 16th September 2020

The Dominic Cummings’ Government is correct. The introduction of The Internal Market Bill this week is not unique and has precedent. For example there’s The Enabling Act forced through by Hitler in 1933 . It ultimately paved the way for totalitarian rule in Germany and all that the world witnessed thereafter. And Putin has also […]

Our country back-peddles again – This week’s blog

Posted on: 16th September 2020

The UK covid-19 battle is characterised by NHS and public sector Lions led by Ministerial Donkeys.Government Ministers have so far protected themselves from deserved criticism with the comfort blanket of supporters who jump on critics for being “unpatriotic” at a time when “we should all stick-together”. This has permitted Ministers to maintain consistency in their […]

British Lifeboats upholding British values

Posted on: 16th August 2020

I celebrate the wonderful work of our lifeboat volunteers. It’s inspiring and reassuring. They continue to uphold British values in spite the storms and tempests of politically-inspired news reporting all around them. The coxswain of a lifeboat on the Kent coast said this week – when asked about their saving the lives of desperate people […]

Un-lockdown – Is the Government still hibernating the truth

Posted on: 25th June 2020

Of course it’s right to lift our country out of “hibernation”. A cautious lifting of the lockdown should happen as soon as it is safe to do so. However;1. the Government should have put in place a competent test & tracing system before this happened. Other countries have. But not here; 2. the Government should […]

The Cummings and goings of the real PM…

Posted on: 23rd May 2020

  So how would the Conservative Government manage without Prime Minister Cummings? This pandemic has shown the UK at its very best – magnificent frontline workers; stoical population respecting the need for lock-down and distancing; and stronger communities where kindness has overcome unkindness. But the Conservative Government has treated it as a public relations rather […]

Crisis shows the true value of key workers and the strength of our communities

Posted on: 29th April 2020

Tomorrow evening we stand out again to applaud our frontline workers. Those people who literally put their lives on the line to save the lives of others and to keep us all going – not just NHS professionals, but care workers, refuse collectors, grocery retail workers, transport workers, delivery services and many, many more. It’s […]

Government’s daily PR briefing exposes its failure – (virtual) Parliament must be recalled

Posted on: 16th April 2020

The Government has been floundering. It’s response to this devastating pandemic has been poor. So for weeks I’ve been urging my former colleagues in our “olde worlde” Parliament to adopt modern technology to get back to work in a virtual Parliament. The UK Government has been slow and indecisive. Way behind the curve with testing, […]
