  1. Leak of emails from the UK ambassador in Washington

    The extraordinary leak of diplomatic briefings from the British Ambassador in Washington to the Prime Minister's office in London coincides with the final month of access to such documents by Theresa May's very small team of political advisers. It can't be hard to work out which one has a sense of...

  2. The Perpetual Repository of Alternative Facts

    "You’re saying it’s a falsehood, and they’re giving – Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that" - Kellyanne Conway to NBC, Sunday 22 January 2017. We get more and more of this, I thought we might keep track. Like when Susan Rice "inadvertently made false...

  3. An expression of thanks to Mr Farage

    That chap without whom there would be no Brexit Party, yes? Nigel. The chap who can't go walkabout without some random protester tipping a pint of McDonald's Sugared Vomit over his fresh-pressed suit. Thank you Mr Farage, you achieved several positive outcomes at the European Election last week....

    I hate to see Strong And Stable May go, she's pure comic genius, but she's not going to stay after her latest outing. We could get Gove. My goodness the country would explode with derisive anger. Mother Leadsom? I would pay them to choose Mother Leadsom. If they have an ounce of sense...

  5. Defence Secretary fired from the UK Cabinet

    Gavin Williamson has strenuously denied he leaked information from the National Security Council as calls are being made for a police inquiry. He was sacked as defence secretary for allegedly disclosing plans to allow Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to help build the UK's 5G network. ...

  6. The massacre at Amritsar, 13th April 1919

    Today marks the hundredth anniversary of the killing of hundreds of unarmed civilians by the British Army in India, at the order of Reginald Dyer. No apology has ever been made by the British Government. Here are the statements in the years after the event:

  7. 2 new Novichok poisonings

    Currently the working hypothesis is that it is connected to the attack on the Skripals - left over product dumped perhaps since Novichok is not common - but they have an open mind. That's according to the Chief Constable of Wiltshire. I don't think this was a deliberate attack by the Russians....

  8. Trump, how long can he last ?

    Just watched a video of Trump admitting he made payments to keep his girlfriends quiet prior to the election. His defence, it wasn't out of the election fund but his own money. So he wins for honesty...............with his disciples.

  9. Well, that was an interesting G7

    I couldn't let it pass without some comment. It would be hilarious if it weren't so serious. Trump can't cope with democratic leaders but he seems to do better with dictators. Maybe he'll get somewhere with Kim, who might just be trying to get out alive with his fortune. They have a lot in...

  12. 13 Russians indicted for interfering in US election

    FBI says 13 Russians and 3 Russian organisations successfully interfered in the US elections. The detail provided by Rosenstein was remarkable, including emails from the indicted to family members saying the FBI were on to them and they were covering their tracks. That's extensive. I also...

  18. Trump restarts Middle East conflict

    Well, he hadn't dominated global headlines for a few days so he had to do something: Move the US embassy to Jerusalem. That's going to end peace in the area. I gather it was an election commitment to his far right religious support. Hypocrites who create conflict and love to feed Death. If there...

  19. What is Brexit going to mean?

    No-one seems to know. So I've sent the following email to my MP, the Honourable Zak Goldsmith, MP for Richmond Park. Dear Sir, Perhaps as an enthusiastic Brexiter you can explain to me what practical, tangible benefits the people of this country can expect to see from leaving the EU? And when...
