Terrorism Is Wrong – But So Are Our Politicians…

Saturday night’s indiscriminate terrorist attack in the area of one of London’s most famous bridges has rightly shocked us all. The realisation that any of us could be mowed down by a passing van or be stabbed while enjoying a drink or a meal with friends or loved ones, is truly terrifying. But, of course, […]

Gary McKinnon And The Extradition Of U.S. Aliens

It’s only taken ten years for our government to say ‘no’ to the US but finally Home Secretary, Theresa May, has done it. Her announcement, on Tuesday, that Gary McKinnon will not have to face extradition to America was a shot in the arm for the right of all UK subjects to a fair hearing. […]

Prince Harry Has A Bottom

Prince Harry has a bottom. Yes, I know you probably hadn’t realised it until today.

“Cyberspace doesn’t exist any more than never-never land. I was no more in America than anyone who is on a long-distance telephone call. The fiction of cyberspace should be properly tested in a British court because it is no more real than Santa Claus. They cannot “return” me to a country I wasn’t in, yet […]

Cutting Through UK Nuclear Deterrent With A Knife!

One of the headline grabbing arguments between the leaders of the three main political parties in this election has been the subject of our nuclear deterrent.

No Room At The Inn For Gays – But Jesus Is OK!

While the political rumblings might not be as severe as the 7.2 on the Richter scale being experienced by those in Mexico, Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Grayling, must have felt more than a little quake in the pit of his stomach following publication of comments he made in private to the Centre For Policy Studies, […]
