    The EU referendum

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-35150356 I see that Michael Heseltine has warned of a Tory "civil war" and that the Tories would be a "laughing stock" if Cameron allowed a free vote for his Cabinet Ministers on this issue. Funny, I seem to remember Harold Wilson doing exactly that last...

    Prime Ministers again

    I tend to remember Prime Ministers by stuff that happens/happened on their shift. I also think that they are defined as successful if not too much bad stuff happens. Although not everything that has occurred news-wise whilst Cameron has been captain has been his fault directly, he has...

    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...

    Southend chant costs £21,000 - SZ could do better on a fiver...

    For a start this did come from The Sun, but I found it gave me mixed emotions. I found it both amusing (slightly) and slightly disturbing that it took £21,000 to come up with: "Underground, overground, signed on a free, he's Dougie Freedman of SUFC." (To the Wombles tune). Got me...

Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Shadow front bencher arrested.

    Ok, I know politics is a dodgy subject at the moment, but felt this story needed reporting. Be interesting to see how it develops, in my opinion. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/3532133/Tory-minister-Damian-Green-arrested-under-the-Official-Secrets-Acts.html...
  13. bye bye Blair

    Anyone got any predictions on how long it will be before Blair finally leaves Downing Street? Seven junior ministers have now resigned today. I reckon he'll be lucky to last to the end of next week. Any other predictions?

    David Icke:  "The Queen Is A Lizard"

    A truly wonderful interview is being conducted by This Morning with David Icke right now. Apparently, the world is being controlled by shape-changing super reptiles known as the "illuminati."  The Queen, presidents, prime ministers are in on it all - and Burt Bacharach!     Also, tables don't...
