I see that some Conservative MPs (perhaps found elsewhere on this page) make bold claims they’re fighting for local Post Offices which have closed or are threatened with closure. It’s like an arsonist returning to the scene with a leaky bucket of water, when the house is already well ablaze, but demanding that folk appreciate […]

Local Post offices in jeopardy

Posted on: 7th October 2018

Since the 2015 General Election scores of local post offices have faced the threat of closure. This is not merely a coincidence.

Of course we must respect the Brexiteers’ referendum victory. Those 17 million of the 66 million people in this country. Apparently “Brexit means Brexit” is as much of an explanation as we deserve.

Response to May Statement

Posted on: 24th September 2018

However you dress it up, this Conservative Government can now only deliver a catastrophic hard/’no deal’ Brexit. Of course I appreciate that Theresa May found herself isolated and humiliated amongst her EU counterparts yesterday and will want to show her Conservative party competitors that she’s not holed up in her bunker today. Normally leaders call […]

Spare a thought for the army of uncomplaining, unsung heroes. Those who are required to make sense of the chaos that is our Government’s management of Brexit. The ranks of stoical civil servants and the proprietors and staff of the thousands of businesses who have been working hard to decode the mantra-laden codswallop and cluelessness […]

Prepare yourselves. It seems our Government is bound to drag us into a “No deal” Brexit. I rejected Brexit in 2016 because I didn’t believe our Country should lose control to those Conservatives who want turn the UK into a backward, narrow-minded, inward looking and intolerant island which reckons that international respect is won through […]
