The Greens have steam coming out of their ears after Ofcom ruled they are not a 'major' party and therefore will not be included in the televised leader's debates in the run up to the general election.

Ofcom's decision is quite controversial and has angered many on the left and...

Peshawar Killers Must Be Brought to Justice

(1) Comments | Posted 17 December 2014 | (11:07)


The massacre of 142 people of which 132 were Pakistani children is absolutely inhumane. Many more are critically injured and we can expect to see the death toll rise. The devastation caused by the Taliban in Peshawar to the families of the victims...

Welbeck is a Go-Go

(0) Comments | Posted 8 September 2014 | (13:17)

Who would have thought Arsenal would sign a top quality 23-year-old English striker on Transfer Deadline Day? Not me and let's be honest not you either.

There has been mixed reaction from the fans about Arsenal's decision to sign Danny Welbeck from Manchester United and I can see why. Welbeck...

Ukip: Racism, Spitefulness and the Rotten Apple Tree

(2) Comments | Posted 29 May 2014 | (16:42)


Nigel Farage often says that there are only a "few bad apples" in his party. It's more than a few bad apples though isn't it? It appears that the entire UKIP tree is putrescent and only grows rotten apples.

UKIP members...

Forget About an Early General Election

(13) Comments | Posted 27 May 2014 | (13:46)


Tory backbenchers have been calling for an early election after a rather (expected) disastrous performance by their coalition partners in the European elections.

They have got to be barking mad if they think the Lib Dems will agree to it.

Liverpool Have Had it Easy

(5) Comments | Posted 9 April 2014 | (13:56)

I don't want to put a downer on Liverpool's success but they have played far fewer games than the other top teams. Liverpool fans seem to react very angrily when I mention this, but it's true!

At the end of the season, Liverpool would have played just 43 games...

Will Jose Mourinho's Mouth Be the Undoing of Chelsea's Title Hopes?

(1) Comments | Posted 26 February 2014 | (23:00)

Jose Mourinho is one of them guys - you either hate him or you love him. I am definitely in the opposing party.

His character is one that really drives me mad. When I learnt that he was set for a return to Stamford Bridge, in all honesty, it didn't...

Politics Is Far Too Important to Be Left to Politicians Alone

(0) Comments | Posted 4 February 2014 | (15:11)

Banging on about democracy is one thing and actually implementing it fairly is another. Whether it's "why young people don't vote" or the call for "the ban on the niqaab" being discussed, those representative of the groups in question are not given the opportunity to have their say.

The Solution to Man Utd's Problems

(2) Comments | Posted 22 January 2014 | (23:00)

Manchester United's problems go much further than the lack of a world-class midfielder. It appears the Red Devils are after Juan Mata and have been linked to several other big names. However, Utd must look at strengthening other positions.

Looking at the back four, there has been a lot of...

Let's not Downgrade the Teaching Profession

(0) Comments | Posted 16 January 2014 | (15:22)

In 2013 the number of teachers in England's state schools fell by 12,000 and the figure is since ever increasing. Teaching is a tough job but many did not expect a huge fall in teacher numbers in the space of such a short time. Isn't it surprising that these results...

Review of British Politics 2013

(1) Comments | Posted 31 December 2013 | (23:00)

2013 is drawing to an end and it's fair to say it has been an eventful year in British politics. From Thatcher's death, to parliament voting against military intervention in the Syria, this year has most definitely been an intriguing one to say the least.

The biggest shock of the...

Tories Make the Rich Richer and the Poor Poorer

(0) Comments | Posted 20 November 2013 | (16:53)

We often hear David Cameron say: "We're all in this together." The truth is that Mr Cameron and his cabinet of millionaires sit there in a pool of cash whilst there are over three million children in Britain living in poverty. Under the Tories, the rich get richer and the...

The Energy Price Freeze Explained

(0) Comments | Posted 13 November 2013 | (14:42)

Labour's campaign goes much further than the price freeze. Only implementing a two year price freeze would simply be an immature and irrelevant policy. The main aim is to fix up the energy market which in its present form is exploiting consumers. The price freeze is just a temporary measure...

Tory Destruction of the NHS

(0) Comments | Posted 6 November 2013 | (17:14)

It disgusts me when our Prime Minister comes out and defends his record on the NHS. The National Health Service is in crisis because of this government and they are simply too weak to admit it. David Cameron is adamant that his government are meeting their "targets" when will he...

Students Forgotten as University Staff Strike

(2) Comments | Posted 30 October 2013 | (23:00)

University staff are expected to strike on Thursday, 31 October, over pay. Not many people take into account the loss to students because of this. For those who enrolled on to university courses in 2012 and 2013 the coalition government trebled university fees to £9,000. On average, one hour of...

Why 16-Year-Olds Should Get the Vote

(1) Comments | Posted 23 October 2013 | (18:43)

One of the many policies announced by Ed Miliband at the Labour Party Conference was that he would lower the voting age to 16. Giving 16 and 17-year-old's the vote will be including them in our democracy which we pride ourselves upon in Britain. A staggering 1.5 million people are...

(1) Comments | Posted 18 October 2013 | (18:15)

The England football team continuously fail to meet the fans expectations but only have themselves to blame. There is an enormous amount of pressure put on the England players to win major competitions but they have let the fans down repeatedly. Pressure is not an excuse, every nation has huge...
