BY JON ALEXANDER Well, Wednesday night was a total shambles, wasn’t it? Just a lot of MPs pretending they were on EastEnders and having a slanging match with Kat Slater. We were told that prorogation of Parliament was unlawful and stopped our best and brightest MPs from debating Brexit and steering us onto a path that would unite both Leavers and Remainers whilst pleasing the … Continue reading Slagfest
BY JON ALEXANDER So there we have it. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she is to resign on the 7th of June this year. Many will now point to her tenacity, determination, dedication and principles and try to forge some sort of passable legacy for her, trying to overwrite the fact she achieved next to nothing of note since she came to power … Continue reading Three Wasted Years
BY JON ALEXANDER With European and Local Elections just on the horizon, realisation is finally starting to dawn on the “it’s fine” brigade of the Conservative Party. Nigel Farage’s week-old Brexit party is now in the lead in polls and expected to win a landslide in Europe. Meanwhile the Tories are expected to suffer heavy losses in council elections. I’ve seen a lot of frantic … Continue reading May now Erdogan
BY JON ALEXANDER So here we are. 2019 is here. New Years resolutions are made and quickly forgotten, some will be making big changes while others seek to keep things going as they are. So what politically can we expect? The answer is not very much unless the Tories can get their act together and provide the country with a much-needed Government. So far, the … Continue reading 2019
BY JON ALEXANDER It’s safe to say that confidence in politics is at an all-time low in the UK at the moment. Both the Conservative and Labour parties are unable to show us a clear direction through ‘Brexit’, both parties are facing civil discord and no leader of any UK party seems to be able to provide the leadership this country is so desperately in … Continue reading Meet the Time Lord
BY JON ALEXANDER It has been more than a rumour for a long time now that the Fabian-backed, Soros-backed doyen of the worst of the progressives, David Miliband, (son of Communist Ralph and brother of hapless Ed) has been waiting in the wings to return and seize the Labour Party and thus a route into power for his repugnant backers. Brexit Is ‘the Humiliation of … Continue reading Leader In Waiting No Longer
BY JON ALEXANDER For decades, Hollywood has been a symbol for many as the ideal lifestyle. Whether it’s the young girl next door fulfilling her dreams of acting alongside the guy she had a poster of on her bedroom wall. Or a young boy wanting to fly the Millennium Falcon into a battle in space. Hollywood could accommodate everybody. It oozed class, style and drama … Continue reading Hollywood Fallen
BY JON ALEXANDER By now you should be aware of the arrest of Harvey Weinstein, that is if you follow any branch of mainstream media. Weinstein is a 65-year-old movie producer, creator of the ‘Miramax’ production company. He is about as ‘Hollywood’ and ‘Democrat’ as you can get – expressing extremely strong support for Obama and then Hillary Clinton. He in turn received strong praise … Continue reading Pervert Havens on the Left
BY JON ALEXANDER I’m sure by now you’re all aware of a Google employee being fired for airing an opinion that wasn’t popular with his employer and the recent instance of some National Trust volunteers receiving criticism for declining to wear an LGBT lanyard. Both cases are a carefully-cultivated storm in a teacup. Whereas Google is sticking to its guns, The National Trust has backed down … Continue reading “Progressive” Shouters
BY JON ALEXANDER “Right, that’s it”, I said back in March of this year, “I can’t be bothered with dating apps, I’m going to delete the last one.” That was my Gaydar account. One that I had operated since I was 19 – back in Devon when I was growing up it was a vital tool, not just for dating but for socialising as well. … Continue reading Racist Dating
BY JON ALEXANDER So after 54 years (900 in the series) we finally have a female Dr Who. I know I’m a bit late to the party (I have been called a fluorescent light bulb in the past) but it got me thinking, a lot has been made of how it’ll be nice to have a female lead on a prime time TV show and … Continue reading Dr Whom?
BY JON ALEXANDER You’ll be surprised to learn that Piers Morgan put his foot in it again. This time regarding Mental Health. The tweet below is what caused the latest online outrage: Morgan’s tweet provoked someone to comment that considering how high male suicide rates are, this was a rather c**tish thing to say. I’m with that tweeter. However, my first thoughts weren’t really about … Continue reading Depression Sufferers Should Man Up?
BY JON ALEXANDER With all the recent hype over Trump getting elected, Brexit, the Conservatives staying in power, you’d think that gay rights in the U.K. and U.S. were due to be ripped from us and everything we’ve achieved thrown out of the window. Naturally, it was just that…hype. Donald Trump was the only candidate to go into the election “pro-gay” as it were, both … Continue reading Gay Africa Must Be Heard
BY JON ALEXANDER For years, regardless of your political affiliations (if any), the general public has grown tired of Politicians. “You can’t trust any of them”, “they’re all as bad as each other” amongst many comments spouted over the years. Whether we accuse them of lying through their teeth, being too smarmy or refusing to answer a question in that politician kind of way that … Continue reading Trump V CNN
BY JON ALEXANDER Ballina/Killaloe, a place I have so much time for. We started coming here as a family in 2007, although my parents had been here twice before already. It’s two small towns located on the border of County Tipperary and County Clare, joined by a bridge over the River Shannon. A charming little part of Ireland that reminds me of all the best … Continue reading The Magic of Ireland
