How Did Brexit and Trump Give Birth to “Fake News”?



Why 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

There's Always Good News in a Free Market Economy



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”.

Anna Soubry – The Laughably Unwitting MP



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 at that time, and that the Conservatives had promised an EU Referendum. She has served her purpose and will never get into power ever again! …Hopefully.

Anna Soubry has been such a disappointment...

Overpopulation and a Willful Blindness


Technological advancements move us to increasingly comfortable and luxurious lifestyles with no upper limit, and measures of poverty – as opposed to poverty itself – move upwards accordingly.

A person classed as “living in poverty” in the western world lives a luxurious life relative to those in the poorest countries. But because poor people in the west are classed as living in poverty when they really are not, there is a relentless push upwards on standards of living and consumption where there is no need.

The Corbyn Gene


Piers and Jeremy Corbyn

Not many people know this, but Jeremy Corbyn has a brother called Piers who is a well-known global warming sceptic. Seeing as Jeremy is a socialist, and Piers is a climate change sceptic, there’s no surprise that the two cannot be reconciled amongst those on either side of the political divide; those on the left tend to accept that anthropological global warming is a fact, whilst those on the right view socialism as an unworkable ideology, therefore both sides sit at odds with at least one of the Corbyn siblings.

Supreme Court Article 50 Ruling


Many 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 again.

The 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 British citizens.

Even if the judgement was the correct one, the fact is that the whole affair was purely instigated and dealt with by the wealthy, privileged, and out of touch. Another perfect example of exactly why we voted to leave the EU in the first place.

I will not give way! And I hope everyone else who voted for Brexit feel the same.
