The Australian Points System!

Posted on December 8, 2019

I am not sure if anyone has noticed but you may have seen Boris Johnson getting terribly excited about an ‘Australian style immigration points system’ lately.

Asking about their immigration system is quite interesting stuff because in many aspects it is not all that Boris Johnson makes it out to be. Could this be ...

Paying Taxes and Those Who Avoid It!

Posted on December 3, 2019

Following various Twitter and Facebook groups, I am quite surprised how many assumptions people make about tax and tax avoidance.

Perennial fuckwit, Prince Andrew, has been taking all the public rap for being an unsavoury scallywag of high ranking, yet everything has bounced off of Johnson, our delightful new PM. That said, I have spoken to two Tories this week and they are claiming they are ...

Corbyn Engulfed in Another Anti Semitic Row!

Posted on November 27, 2019

Jeremy Corbyn has been engulfed in another anti semitic crisis today after it emerged that a Labour Party member admitted to using inappropriate language towards the Jewish community 46 years ago. Willie Eckerslike, a three pounds a month Labour Party member from Skippingdale, Cumbria, confessed to using the term ‘Jew’ when his school friend wouldn’t lend him 10p to buy a school dinner in 1973.   Dinner Money Row The ...
