The timetable – talk about last minute!

Yes, what is happening? Unbelievably, for a country that is leaving the EU in 20 days we still don’t know how we’re leaving. But next week is a critical week. I’ll give you a run-down of some certainties, of which there are very few. The thing is I haven’t been

Are you feeling disenfranchised?

Yes, are you feeling disenfranchised? As in, could you vote for any party in the UK without a feeling of dismay, and a peg on your nose? Now, as far as Mrs May is concerned, there’s not much likelihood of a general election coming along soon, and yet, you never

Are we in a kind of hell?

Oh boy, Twitter was on fire! Brexiters were appalled and incandescent. Remainers, meanwhile, while not exactly over the moon, were thrilled that at last someone had said exactly what they see as the essence of the current situation. What was the fuss all about? Well. Donald Tusk, the EU Council’s president,

What’s the situation now?

I nearly put pen to paper, so to speak, last week (meaning wk 14th-20th) because what a week it was, but unusually for me I couldn’t face it.  I’ve always said that I’d never look away from the Brexit mess, or say, I can’t do anything, therefore I can’t be

Another quick update

Before I get into the pantomime of the last couple of days, I’d just like to ask this, does it matter to the world that we’re leaving the EU?  Because it does seem that the UK is a tad obsessed with our self-inflicted dilemma.  I’m looking at someone else’s blog

The Shitstorm is Now or Is It? – Part 2

In this post I’ll continue to give you a day-by-day account of a week, which is not yet finished. A deeper analysis will come in another post –  probably next year!  Anyway, Lenin’s quote should now read: There are decades when nothing happens and hours when decades happen.”  As things really

The Shitstorm is Now Part 1

Or look at it this way. Having said for nearly two years that nothing is happening, Lenin’s quote is very apt, “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.” The past week has been interesting and as for this week……   So again, like the last post

What’s happening?

What’s happening? Well a lot has happened since my last post, and then again nothing has happened, apart from a great deal of shouting. Because nothing is agreed, although I qualify that with, actually, there are things that are agreed over the water in the EU, and then not a lot

What is this ‘Backstop’?

I’m finishing this piece on the 11thNovember having watched the wreath laying on our Cenotaph at 11.0am.  How ahistorical are our politics.  Remember, remember I’d say. Anyway, backstop? Everyone these days seems to be using that word – backstop.  But what does it mean? This is about Brexit, and it is

Random thoughts on current events

I’ve been struggling for a few weeks now with a piece for this blog. The writing workshop I went on before I started this blog taught me that when writing a column (which this is, kind of) if it isn’t written quickly then drop it.  And that’s what I’m doing.
