The cultural revolution that’s just occurred – within which I’ve lost my identity

This is another situation report written as an overview for those of you who don’t get the detail on Brexit from their media that we do in the UK.  And, just like the last post there has been a great deal of activity, with many accompanying articles in the press,

Brexit – a situation report

Well that was dangerous – promising a post ‘later this week’!  Now it’s next year and not even the first month of next year. Not to worry, because a great deal has happened and then again, nothing has happened.  For those of you living outside the UK I’ll put you

False news or to put it this way, here’s something that is not news at all

This is a post about a very British problem known as ‘bed-blocking’.  I’ve just read yet another article on the crisis in social care. How older people are staying longer in hospital than they should because there is no ‘social care’ out there to allow them to return to their

Shining a light on the Donald

Yes, there was an election with a result.  Everyone is dismayed.  And everyone has an opinion.  I thought I’d let the dust settle before I wrote something.  Instead, I’ve read so many articles on what happened: it’s this, it’s that, it’s her, it’s him, it’s the populace, it’s the ‘basket

Our Executive has just had a smack in the face from not a European court but a British court – good.

Well, well, well. I had a half written post for you on Brexit, which would have been my usual caustic look at the somewhat chaotic approach that this government has to Brexit.  As in, one moment it’s going to be a Hard Brexit (week before last) and the next it’s

Corbyn and the political tribes of the not-particularly-United Kingdom

Whilst I was away in France I began a post, but by the time I got back it was well out-of-date as political events in the UK continue to move both slowly (our actual exit from the EU) and fairly fast (what people say about our exit). Before I get

What are we doing now in the Brexit window of opportunity? The answer is very little.

I hear from a friend in Australia that everyone she knows of British origin is pleased at the outcome of our Referendum – hmm.  Is that because they moved away from the UK to get away from that awful Europe thing across the Channel?  And wow, the Brits have voted

What’s with Labour and the Tories?

And for my fortnightly look at UK politics, what do I have to report?  You’d think it would be all about Labour – as they’re the ones constantly in the media.  But the Tory party is sure to be having some fearsome fisticuffs right now.  You absolutely bet it is.

There’s class, classy and the downright not-classy

OK, what do I have to report this week? I said in my last post the processes in the Labour Party grind on, and that continues. A recent court case has ruled that 130,000 (out of 500,000) previously barred from voting for Corbyn by the NEC are now being able

How did we get to where we are now?

There aren’t any major events within our two political parties to report.  Theresa May seems to be settling down into her role. She’s visited various bods in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Germany and France and had a credible and convincing start with her first Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs). You know
