On 3rd June Donald Trump arrived in the UK on a State visit. The next day, as Trump went through to make his speech, an American woman behind him repeated to the press “US press only”. WHY? We are in the UK and our press have every right to be there! Protesters, believed to number… Continue reading Donald Trump – State Visit
OK, so I wasn’t going to write another article on Mr Nigel Farage, but I can’t help myself when I see the latest videos! (click here for my first article) First of all I have to talk about the recent incident when somebody threw a milk shake over him. I can not say it strongly… Continue reading Nigel Farage, Part 2!
The Company In April 2019, Nigel Farage launched The Brexit Party Limited, a private limited company that was incorporated on 23 November 2018. Farage is currently the main director of the company, in which he describes his occupation as ‘ Leader Of A Political Party’, and is the only person listed as a person with… Continue reading The Brexit Party Limited
The European Elections are almost upon us, and I thought it worthwhile explaining the proportional voting system used to calculate the ‘winners’, as it’s so different to the system we are used to. This explanation has been put together from several explanations available on the internet. Apologies for the length, it’s a complicated system to… Continue reading European Elections – Proportional Voting
It’s no secret that I do not like Nigel Farage. He’s a sweet talker, saying what the people want to hear. Doesn’t matter if what he says is right or wrong. Some friends of mine love him, and I really couldn’t understand why. The only thing one of them said was that he spoke straight,… Continue reading Nigel Farage
I have just watched a video of Trump trying to answer the question put to him about a hard brexit. Well, that video itself is worth a whole article about it! However, besides stating that Ireland was part of the UK, he obviously didn’t know what a ‘hard brexit’ meant! The man is unbelievable! OK,… Continue reading A Hard Brexit
OK, I can hear you thinking, “what on earth is The Orville?”! Well, it’s an American spoof series based on Star Trek, and it’s very silly at times LOL! “OK, so what has that got to do with democracy?” In the episode we watched last night, they were going to a planet to find two… Continue reading The Orville & True Democracy
Today I shared an interesting video on Facebook (the video is below), and a friend made a laughing emoticon to it. It was a serious video that showed a politician saying things that were not true, and the video factually corrected each point he made. When sharing it I commented that, “This is the reason… Continue reading Today I am sad!
“We want our country back”, “the EU is undemocratic”, “unelected bureaucrats run the EU”. These are just a few of the claims I hear shouted out by brexiteers. But are they in fact true or just more lies spread mainly by the media and some politicians? I would first ask what is meant by “unelected”?… Continue reading Did the UK lose its Sovereignty?
One of the loudest things that brexiteers shout is that the EU is undemocratic. I have asked in what way they believe it is not democratic, but never receive any answers; I’m just told, “they are, why can’t you see it?” or “they’re unelected” or “they’re unfair to the UK”, and other similar statements, but… Continue reading How the EU works
At the time of the referendum I was swinging backwards and forwards between leave and remain. In the end I voted remain. Why? Because, at that time, I simply did not have enough information to make an informed and educated decision, and therefore felt I should vote to remain as we were, at least for… Continue reading Brexit – Myths, Lies & Facts
The 23rd June 2016 will not be forgotten in a hurry. The results of the referendum on whether people wanted to remain in the European Union or leave shocked everybody in the UK. For some it was a very welcome surprise, while others felt it was a disaster. The majority of people believed that the… Continue reading Brexit – The Beginning of the End
