Masquerading as democrats, our Parliament is sadly now behaving like the European Commission

10 Oct

At the heart of Brexit is democracy and what it means. Democracy is ‘a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections’. When David Cameron called the EU referendum he vested supreme power in […]

As Varadkar and Johnson meet on the Wirral are we slipping slowly towards an agreed #Brexit?

10 Oct

Since our most reliable witness on the Brexit crisis is not around (Brian’s taking a well-earned break somewhere in the antipodes), it falls to me try to make sense of the latest indecipherable episode. So the “Teesh” was on the Wirral with the British PM today and the mood music brightened. After that teenage outburst by what most informed folks believe was Dominic Cummings, there seems to be something of a break in the tense atmosphere. Tom McTeague in The … Read more

Getting creative with health…

10 Oct

Creativity is a fundamental part of human nature, and the use of the arts to improve health and wellbeing is not a new idea. Yet we still tend to think of the arts as the remit of the talented few with most of us giving up artistic pursuits as we leave school and get older. Unlike other behaviours that can be beneficial to our health, such as exercise, a varied diet and social support, we don’t think of creative engagement … Read more

Corbyn’s New Chief of Staff Joins the Family Business

10 Oct

The Stalinist removal Karie Murphy as Corbyn’s Chief of Staff yesterday was both shocking and unsurprising in equal measures. While her body is still warm, however, Corbyn has appointed former Whitehall equalities chief, Helene Reardon Bond, as her replacement. In line with Labour’s foreign policy, Guido presumes this Bond is from Russia with Love… Other […]

10 Oct

The leading anti-badger cull group – which has over 100,000 likes on Facebook – is taking full advantage of the stretched police resources thanks to their friends at the extremist Extinction Rebellion protests this week.

Labour MP Requires ‘Sense of Humour’ from New Employee

10 Oct

Labour MP, Conor McGinn, has added a unique requirement on his current researcher job advert – that the candidate should have a sense of humour. Everyone in politics needs one at the moment to cope… McGinn also states the hired candidate should sympathise with the aims of the Labour Party – ironically the biggest joke […]

The Alternative – where does the power lie, who knows best, will anyone ask let alone listen? (Fishamble’s A Play For Ireland at Lyric Theatre until Sunday 13 October)

10 Oct

Oisín Kearney and Michael Patrick’s playful counterfactual uses referendum concepts and lexicon – familiar from both Scotland’s indyref and the EU vote – to open up a conversation about who knows what is best for the people of Ireland, whether those who represent us actually listen to our views before making decisions, and ultimately where power lies in a society swayed by soundbite.

Adam Claims Sky Views Not An Opinion Piece

Thus is a misrepresentation @GuidoFawkes in a long and detailed article @BethRigby examines the options of the various political factions on #Brexit. She uses the word “should” in the sense of what the rebel alliance should be doing to pursue their goals. https://t.co/vmlfS5LMXZ — Adam Boulton (@adamboultonSKY) October 9, 2019 Adam Boulton is loyally defending […]
