    Forever Summer as BJ Strikes Again!

    It’s True, it’s Going to be Hot Until October! I am writing this blog onboard ‘Late Flight EZY8303’ to Mahon. It is going to be hot where we are heading and it will be hot in the UK when I return…UNTIL OCTOBER!! I know this because a barman in my local pub, a woman on […]

    Why Labour Can’t Rid Themselves of Antisemitism!

    I turned on Newsnight last night and the subject was the Labour Party anti-Semite row “that just won’t go away”. It reported that ‘The Times’ was publishing proof that Jeremy Corbyn hosted an event (in 2010) where it was said Israeli’s were behaving like the new Nazis. The event was called ‘Never Again for Anyone […]

    Brexit With a Cricket Club Analogy

    What I can’t help noticing lately is how many people assume that a Brexit deal with our European neighbours should be easily solved by simply telling the EU countries what we want, and they can either lump it or like it. There is a theory that they need us just as much, if not more, […]

    The World Cup is Over – We Can all Start Falling Out Again!

    For a while at least everything seemed to be going our way. The sun was shining and it seemed that everyone was buzzing with excitement at the prospect of England in a World Cup Final. Then after England flew out of the traps but failed to bury their opposition (Croatia) it all began to unfold […]

    Can England Go All the Way?

    I don’t know about anyone of you reading this but I can’t concentrate on anything today, making admin cock up after cock up to the point where I am going to pack up for the day. I haven’t done myself any favours, playing a 1990 hit list on YouTube and reflecting back on when West […]

    Was That Johnson’s Last Hurrah? He Won’t Think So!

    Someone on the radio this morning said how bizarre it seemed that we have a modern football manager overseeing a young, vibrant and humble World Cup squad in Russia, whilst back at home we have a rudderless government where those trying to find something economically sane to cling on to after Brexit, are getting stabbed […]

    Southgate Engaging With the Disconnected!

    Wasn’t it wonderful seeing England win a penalty shoot-out last night? To see these young lads emerge from a crisis and stay focussed after the bitter disappointment of conceding a late equaliser, was alien territory for me and those of my generation. In years gone by, England teams would have capitulated under the weight of […]

  • A Trip to Riga, Latvia!

    I learnt two things about ‘City Breaks’ last weekend, the first being that they are great fun, the second being that they are very also tiring once you pass 50. Five of us left Gatwick on Thursday not quite knowing what to expect, except a cooler temperature in Riga than that of the recent heatwave […]

    Twitter and the Worrying Signs of Picking on Remain Boy

    I love a good scroll through Twitter I do. It is far more entertaining than Facebook which sadly, has more or less been redefined into a social media platform where only self indulgence, mild mannered jokes and nice pictures are acceptable. The problem with Facebook is that when you start, you collect friends willingly, even […]

    Tim Martin, Wetherspoons and Duty on Beers & Wines!

    One of the more, shall we say, charismatic Brexit figures, is rugged faced King of cheap booze, Tim Martin, owner of the JD Wetherspoon pub chains. Wetherspoon’s are well known for presenting well-kept beer at cheap prices due (I am led to believe) to it being purchased shortly before its sell by date and turned […]
