    Martin McGuinness Dies Aged 66

    Northern Ireland's First Minister and IRA terrorist has died at the age of 66. Good, may he and his lot rot in hell. Now, just Gerry Adams and a few more to go and the planet will be a better place. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-39185899

    Brexit: an apology

    During the referendum campaign I was guilty of talking down the benefits of Brexit down. In particular I was highly sceptical of the health advantages that this would bring despite this seemingly being a huge part of the Leave campaign (see picture of leading Government minister in front of a...

    Theresa May

    Blimey she's ruthless. Hunt, Gove, Osbourne, Morgan, Whittingdale, all gone. New posts created for Brexit, including Davis in charge of Brexit (who has always been anti-EU), and the disgraced Liam Fox as new international trade minister. Oh and BoJo, which is very clever for May. In essence...

    Prime minister

    Just got on Boris with Paddys at 4/5 which was their January price. Would expect that to shorten very quickly.

    Thorne vs Corbyn

    In the Labour New Leader thread, Uncle Leo has claimed that Corbyn has as much chance as Willie Thorne has in becoming Prime minister. My own take is that if Thorne can over come illness, and adversity he could take Corbyn on... and beat him. So zoners who's it to be, in a straight choice for...

    NHS Junior Doctors Industrial Action

    It's probably time to open up this particular issue. NHS Junior Doctors are taking industrial action for the first time in 40 years. So, is it ever right for medical staff to take this sort of action? The BBC took a poll very recently to see what patients' views towards this action were. Two...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...

    The Clock Ticks On

    From Mark Steyn: The world divides into those who sincerely believe in that "Coexist" sticker and those who think it's a delusional evasion. After all, if it weren't for that big Muslim crescent "C" at the front, you wouldn't need a bumper sticker at all: That peace-symbol "O"? It's Muslims...

    Network Rail upgrade delayed by government

    It looks like Network rail are in serious manure as a result of rising costs and missed targets of their modernisation program, making the £38.5bn plan untenable. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-33270586 Obviously, nobody wants to see this sort of outcome to change, but as a Government body...

    James Blunt and the Jealous Shadow Minister

    Anyone else see this? Chris Bryant,the shadow Culture Minister took a direct swipe at James Blunt by name dropping him while bitching about too many people from boarding school backgrounds being in music, films and TV, etc. Blunt rightly took offence and below is his reply...

    The best Prime Ministers we never had

    Looking round at the various leaders of the political parties today, all of them leave me cold in terms of charisma, believability and leadership skills. I've never been a rabid political animal since I reached voting age but I do admit to having socialist tendencies in preference. It got me...

    Is Ed Miliband weird ?

    According to the washington post, some Labour supporters clearly think that Ed is a 'weirdo'. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/05/23/is-ed-miliband-too-weird-to-be-british-prime-minister/ Personally I'm not sure...albeit he always looks like he's about to burst into...

    Shrimperzone's Honourable Gentlemen

    Just a bit of fun, it's election time and Shrimperzone has evolved into a national and global beast. The decision has been taken to field a candidate to fight every seat in the country and the opinion polls suggest a landslide for us. We have no elected leader but in anticipation that we will be...

    The Milliband Speech

    Trying to play the class card again. Almost nothing on what he will do for the economy and even nicked the 'One Nation' slogan from Disraeli, a Conservative Prime Minister. Loved all his bluster about the forgotten 50% who dont go to university which is going to blow up in his face on wednesday...
  19. The Top 10% - Should They Pay More Tax?

    The Deputy Prime Minister has declared that the top 10% should pay more tax. He didn't distinguish between income and wealth and he didn't say how they should be taxed (though he has talked vaguely about a temporary wealth tax). Do you agree that the top 10% aren't paying enough?
  20. Cabinet reshuffle

    Lansley is out as Health Minister. Hopefully good news, but will wait and see. Ken Clarke has also been replaced as justice secretary.
