Banalysis

BY ANDREW MOODY Witty, cleverly structured, argued and written, Frank Haviland’s BANALYSIS is driven by the same exasperated tone of the TV presenter in the classic 1970s movie NETWORK. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Once, the author hopes, just this once, the truth will finally be told about the way the world really operates. It is only easy … Continue reading Banalysis

Milkshakes & Hypocrisy

BY FRANK HAVILAND Last Saturday’s events in Oldham may have died down but the underlying tensions are still simmering. For those who missed it, Tommy Robinson’s MEP election campaign rally was besieged by balaclava-wearing Muslim thugs, who casually threw bottles and bricks while under police escort. The media trotted out the usual headlines, doing their best to confuse as to who was doing the attacking, … Continue reading Milkshakes & Hypocrisy

Great British Baker Offence

BY FRANK HAVILAND I have to confess, as an unforgivably straight white male, the list of things I must be offended by keeps me up at night. Last week alone, I had a harrowing time trying to reconcile why my two-year-old is not demonstrably transgender; downplay suspicions that my pet goldfish is a closet Tommy Robinson supporter, and decide whether eating an LGBT BLT sandwich … Continue reading Great British Baker Offence

Lamentable Lammy

BY FRANK HAVILAND The accolade of ‘Britain’s worst MP’ is fiercely contested at the quietest of times.  In these days of open treachery and blistering incompetence though, you have to really go some to be in the running. Cue David Lammy, the one-man race awareness course, who occasionally moonlights as the Labour MP for Tottenham. Despite being a mere backbencher, Lammy is rarely out of … Continue reading Lamentable Lammy

Letwin Coup Irrelevant

BY FRANK HAVILAND Just days away from the hallowed Brexit date of March 29th and we may be redefining the nation’s future on an hourly basis. As we near the crescendo to the most interminable 3 years’ procrastination, and the worst negotiation since Lady Godiva’s tailor agreed to be paid by the stitch, Great Britain is now in the position where absolutely no one knows … Continue reading Letwin Coup Irrelevant

A Test for the Unholy Alliance

BY FRANK HAVILAND It’s a well-known fact that heavyweight encounters rarely live up to the hype. Promoters are often guilty of allowing things to marinate until both sides are well past their sell-by dates. The long-awaited clash between Islam and gay rights however, may prove to be the exception; provided the rainbow corner comes to fight of course. I always suspected we’d get there with … Continue reading A Test for the Unholy Alliance

From Caliphate to Welfare State

BY FRANK HAVILAND The first duty of government is to protect its citizens. You can map the decline of a nation simply by its inability to uphold the laws founded for such a purpose. Britain is now failing this litmus test with alarming regularity. Westminster is now perfectly willing to ignore its largest ever democratic vote, overlook the carnage on the streets of London lest … Continue reading From Caliphate to Welfare State

The Patron Saint of Victimhood

BY FRANK HAVILAND With the best will in the world, it’s hard to sympathise with Diane Abbott. For the record, I don’t possess that will. Nevertheless, I did my utmost to read her ‘woe is me’ whinge-fest in the Independent last week with impartiality. It wasn’t easy. The Hackney MP has had her ample plumage ruffled once again, this time by ‘racist’ mistreatment at the … Continue reading The Patron Saint of Victimhood
