17 December 2017  Daily Question

Why would we update an old Christmas Card?

#Politics #PoliticsandConflict #Sameoldtories

Food banks became the big issue under Prime Minister Cameron when I first made this Christmas card in 2013, but Britain now has more rough sleepers than ever. All but eliminated under Labour.

 

In-work poverty has introduced the notion of nurses relying on Food banks, in the world's sixth largest economy, and yes, rising child poverty.


This Tory government must be so proud.


Accordingly I have updated the Christmas card.

16 December 2017  Daily Question

The Daily Mail was livid when it was disclosed that the Queen's private estate, secretly invests vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens.

Will the Queen mention this in her Christmas Day address

to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth?

29 October 2017  Daily Question

What Now?

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt told Marr today

that the he deserved credit for replacing some,

but not all, of the NHS Nurses he cut from the Health Service.

Where the tories claim progress there is in fact a NHS funding cut.

In real terms, in life and death terms, the Tories have failed.

The government borrows at 0.25% interest.

Why are they so reluctant to save lives?

05 October 2017  Daily Question

If Jeremy Corbyn is the authentic voice of British politics then who might epitomise the fake voice?

 

Fake May
If Theresa May has to frequently describe herself as compassionate because the evidence of her actions are to the contrary, and if she is to do so by aping a West Wing script, then look no further than the

"dead woman walking".
It is no wonder that Theresa May choked on

those plagiarised words.
