Feeling the Brexit blues

I took this photo as I walked past some TVs while I was at work today. It was lunchtime and I was on a break from facilitating a workshop. I couldn't avoid the bank of TVs all simultaneously blaring Brexit-related news and today's formal announcement of Brexit was the worst.  I'm not going to try ...

What a mess

I watched coverage of the EU Referendum until 4am on Friday morning, sitting on my couch and blinking in disbelief. In the last few months, the campaign to leave the EU has been characterised by hatred, xenophobia and some outright lies about both the EU and what life outside of the EU would be like. ...

Election time…

So the election is tomorrow. In case you haven't heard. To be fair to the political parties and the media, they've kept it under wraps so far...so don't feel too bad if this is the first you've read about it. I reached maximum election news saturation last week, when news of a "Royal Baby" represented ...

Farage continues to spout crap

And now he's a historian. Seemingly happy to sacrifice another 100,000 lives to somehow prevent the rise of the Nazi movement.

Who keeps ...

Nigel Farage’s UKIP have managed to maintain a technical grouping (Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy) in the European Parliament by convincing a Polish MEP to join them. Boy, he seems like a charmer. According to the Guardian: For instance, he thinks women’s opinions are shaped by the sperm of the men they sleep with, ...

I don’t know where to start

I really don’t know where to start with this story  I said many months ago that the best thing about the UKIP party getting more press exposure would be their inevitable public implosion once more of their members got to be heard. Here (after the ridiculous buffoon Godfrey Bloom) is another example: A UKIP Councillor blaming the ...

Nigel Farage: enormous tosser…

Euroskeptic MEP Nigel Farrage crossed the line from legitimate political protest to plain nastiness. His outburst against the new European Council President in the European Parliament showed Farrage up for the little Englander he really is: Nigel Farage, who leads UK Independence Party (UKIP) MEPS in the European parliament, said Herman Van Rompuy had "the ...

Lisbon II: The Revenge

The Lisbon Treaty is once again being put before the Irish people in a referendum. I say "again" as they rejected it the first time, much to the consternation of the Irish Government and their partners in Brussels. The Treaty represents a major change in how the European Union is run and simplifies decision-making. Now ...
