What Do You Think Today?

The Chancellor is being urged by two ex-treasury officials to put the country before political gain in the next election, and refrain from pursuing tax cuts in the forthcoming budget that the country simply cannot afford. So tells the Observer today, in which said officials (ex government advisors o...

What Do You Think Today?

The Galloway win in Rochdale has really set the cat amongst the pigeons in the UK, prompting the PM to step out of the front door of No 10, to deliver an impromptu announcement om the "shocking increase in extremist activity" he says is sweeping the country. In a carefully choreographed (f...

What Do You Think Today?

Just want to add a bit to what I was saying in respect of George Galloway's Workers Party win in Rochdale yesterday. Galloway won by a stonking 6,000 votes but it's really the rest of the voting that is interesting to me. Because the runner up was neither Labour (the previous holder) nor the Tories,...

Nice! One in the eye for Kier Stamer in Goerge Galloway winning the Rochdale by-election for the Workers Party, standing on a completely 'stop the war in Gaza' ticket. Stamer has done more than any other individual (with the possible exception of Speaker Linsay Hoyle) to fan the flames of the curren...

I've done a post over in the film forum, a review of the Oscar nominated film The Zone of Interest . It's taken up my morning time that I normally alot to this place. I have some pretty bold claims to make in respect of this film so if it's not too bold a plug for a post of my own, can I request tha...

The Zone of Interest

I am seriously struggling as to know how to begin this review, such is the impact that this Jonathan Glazer directed masterpiece effected upon me. The Oscar nominated film released this year following 10 years in the planning, tells the story of Auschwitz Commomdant Rudolph Hoss and his wife Hodwig,...

2023. A Duff Year For Films

Take your point Menolly. Yeah - there's been some tough times for films in the past few years so okay, let's leave the jury out on this one. D&D SoulBiter, was the only one you mentioned that I've seen. It was as you said - fun enough and not taking itself seriously enough to get hot under the c...

Now let's have a look and see what the papers are up to this morning. The Mail has got its knickers in a twist over Chancellor Jeremy Hunt's reported decision not to spring extra money for the defence budget in the forthcoming budget day announcements. They say that ex defence ministers and military...

Ok. Contentious post warning. This came about when I saw a clip from a Hard Talk interview of Arab-Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef, in which he asked the following question. "Tell me a single argument as to why the Israeli Jews have more right to occupy the land they do than the Palestinian pe...

Rishi Sunak speaks out against surging antisemitism in this country, but has no words to say on the Islamophobia displayed by people with his own party, such as Lee Anderson and Suella Braverman. Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden says that Anderson's words were ill judged, but refuses to brand the...

And on it goes. 30p Lee (who can never resist the opportunity to say something controversial to keep his name in the headlines) goes on right wing alternative media channel GB News and says that Mayor of London Sadiq Khan (London's first Muslim Mayor) has "been got to by Islamists" and has...

It's them Islamists wot is doing it! The Times this morning (ever reliable for being there when needed) that continues to stoke the fires of Islamophobia building in the right wing elements of the country that couldn't give a toss what is happening in Gaza. They run a headline story on a pro-Palesti...

Strewth! Where even to begin! Because now is where things begin to get a bit confused. Certainly following Hoyle's announcement a shed load of Tories and SNP members got up and stormed out of the Commons. There was a vote at some later point in which the Labour motion was carried. Stamer was thus li...

Not in the slightest Av. I saw one of the hundreds of protesters that gathered outside of the courtrooms interviewed (not on mainstream media I hasten to add, where the coverage time still adds up to only - let me see - nothing) who said that it now rested with the global South to take the high grou...

When the dust cleared, instead of the losers sloping off home, he gave them the option to join his tribe, or be killed. 15 odd years later, you had the Zulu Empire. :D There's collectivism for you. Always a sketchy one! ;) Today I'm going to talk about what isn't in the news. In London, t...

10 out of 10 to Prince William for coming out and saying that the killing in Gaza must end, humanitarian aid must be prioritised and a permanent peace settlement sought. It's the first statement from anyone at the highest level of our social hierarchy that has come anywhere near a criticism of what ...

Yesterday I responded to a Daily Express feed (I suppose you call it ; one of those headlines accompanied by a picture on the Google 'new tab' opening page) telling me that I could cook a perfect baked potato in 10 minutes without ever putting the potato in the oven. Why did I click on it. I already...

A nasty little spat nasty developed between Secretary of State for Business and Trade Kemi Badenoch and the (was he sacked or did he jump) ex head of the Post Office Henry Staunton. Staunton, who irrespective of the means of his actual leaving certainly left under a cloud, gave an interview in which...

A tory minister said in support of Rishi Sunak's leadership - under fire from MPs who see him as an obstacle to their regaining their seats and winning the forthcoming general election - that, "If we don't all hang together then we will hang separately." As long as they all hang, it's a ma...
