Is Sunak just another corrupt multi-cultural (self-)enricher?

After a plane crash in 2020, an investigation revealed that more than 30% of civilian pilots in Pakistan had fake licenses and were not qualified to fly, Addressing Pakistan’s National Assembly, Ghulam Sarwar Khan the cesspit’s aviation minister said 262 pilots in the country “did not […]

Oh Kami-Kwasi – what have you done?

Friday blog

It’s not the purpose of this blog to cover stories that have already been exhaustively covered in the mainstream media. But the ghastly incompetence of Kwasi ‘Khazi’ Kwarteng or ‘Kami-Kwasi’ as he is now affectionately known, is just so appalling that it’s probably worth mentioning a couple of the inevitable results.

Firstly, let […]

Do you have a newspaper, magazine or TV subscription?

Friday blog

I don’t normally write about myself. That’s not the purpose of either my blog or my books. But I thought this little story might amuse or even help some readers.

The EU saves the world!

Last week the glorious People’s Undemocratic Republic of the European Union (aka the EUSSR) confirmed its plan to cut CO2 emissions by 55% (compared to their 1990 levels) by 2030.

First I would recommend readers go to Wednesday’s blog and click on the headline. That will take you to ‘readers’ comments’. In the ‘readers’ comments’ there’s an excellent explanation of how the US presidential system works. This points out that […]

(Friday blog)

Quite rightly, most of us have been impressed at how many front-line NHS workers are risking their lives working with Covid-19 Chinese plague victims, often in difficult conditions and often with insufficient personal protective equipment (PPE). And at least 20 NHS workers have lost their lives to the Chinese plague which accidentally leaked […]

I applaud them. But some people might feel they’re greedy traitors?

(weekend blog)

The Chinese Covid-19 plague which was accidentally leaked from a Chinese research lab in Wuhan has highlighted how dependent most Western countries have become on the corrupt, dirty, lying, disease-ridden Chinese.

China takes over the world?

Under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party, Chinese companies have completely devastated most Western manufacturing and […]

Beware the coming Chinese smash, grab and takeaway!

(Thursday blog)

As we struggle to survive the Chinese Covid-19 plague, we might risk failing to prepare for some unwelcome consequences.

One of these is that many Western companies will emerge from the lockdown on their knees or even bankrupt. This will present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone with cash to buy up these companies […]

Do you own a flat? Are you being fleeced?

(weekend blog)

Slight change of subject today.

It’s the same the whole world over

For most of my life I’ve lived in detached houses, in the UK and abroad. However, for a few years while I was travelling a lot, I moved into a penthouse flat as it was much more secure than a house […]
