has “fake news” suddenly hit the mainstream media by storm? Why are
politicians and certain other spuds talking about it on a daily basis?
It’s been around for at least half a century, but it’s only now that
everyone seems to be taking notice
A couple of weeks
ago, BBC News skipped over – faster than lightning – the fact that
the strength of the US Dollar was forcing prices upwards worldwide, not just
here in the UK. I think it was on one of those numerous days after Brexit when
GBP gained value against EUR, so they couldn’t exactly isolate GBP as a sole
loser “because of Brexit”.
I’m a Broxtowe
resident and I voted for this woman, but you can take comfort in the fact that
the only reason she was voted in was because she was the Conservative candidate

Anna Soubry has
been such a disappointment...
advancements move us to increasingly comfortable and luxurious lifestyles with
no upper limit, and measures of poverty – as opposed to poverty itself

sides sit at odds with at least one of the Corbyn siblings.
millions of British people felt for the first time in their lives that
their vote counted; that their vote would make a real
difference. Those same millions will be wondering if that rare moment
in history will be taken away from them by the establishment once
Supreme Court ruling on the triggering of Article 50 was to be
expected, but that doesn’t lessen my disappointment. This isn’t
about democracy; this is about placing an obstacle in the way of the
will of the people. A technicality in law which ignores the will of
the judgement was the correct one, the fact is that the whole affair
was purely instigated and dealt with by the wealthy, privileged, and
