Letters to the editor – will they ever learn?

Sir. A certain group of people are at it again, now deploying a tactic on the topic of the Corona virus that has failed them twice in very recent history.

I refer to their smothering of social media channels with the most appalling nonsense with regard to the UK government’s handling of the crisis. Everything is too early, too late, too little, too much and so on. They twist their arguments to suit and all with the sole aim of bringing down the government.

They seem to forget that this government was recently elected despite their efforts to encumber us with one that they would have approved of. When they talk of the Prime Minister’s performance as “sampling” I wonder what they would have thought had we had Jeremy Corbin and Diane Abbott managing things.

Not only did their flooding of social media fail to elect a Labout government many of these same moaners used the social media platforms to keep us in the EU by flooding it with messages of doom. That failed too.

Will they ever learn that the silent majority are not so stupid that we will believe all of their nonsense? I think that we should be told.

Yours etc, Disgusted of Dorcan.

“Bloody foreigners!”

This was after the election before last, the one that saw us saddled with an ineffective coalition, and the remark in the title above was overheard on the ‘bus. It would be easy to disniss it as some casual racism from a couple of middle aged white men, for the pair whose conversation I was listening to fitted the bill in terms of skin colour and appearence, but there was more to it.

Letters to the Editor – the 2017 election

Sir

It seems to me that Mrs May called for an erection, her campaign has been a cock up and could result in a prick entering number ten. Or perhaps I just have a penis fixation?

Letters to the Editor; can this be right?

Sir

Your columns, like all media chanels, are festooned with the question of rights. Human rights, women’s rights, minority rights and more all in the name of equality.

Yet if there is to be true equality who will make a stand for the lefts?

Yours etc

An unpalatable thought

The rise of the Trumpster on the politcal scene in the US has brought the inevitable blast of leftist outrage regarding much of what the man appears to stand for; racist, bigot, bully they scream, but maybe there is something that they are missing. Continue reading

Erecting a leader

It’s always nice when friends get something that they want, even if it is something that you wouldn’t want yourself, and that is how I feel about the Labour Party leadership erection (the malapropism is deliberate, for my feeling is that there has been a preponderance of posturing pricks, a sort of mini version of the general erection back in May when there were hundreds of them).

the tide of immigration, a parliamentary sketch

In the House yesterday the Leader of the Opposition, the Rt Hon Eric Millipede (Lab) demanded to know what the Government were doing to stop the tide of illegal immigration into the UK. Specifically he was referring to the invasion over the last 8 weeks or so of several billion water droplets from other, unspecified nations. “Could this tide of water not have been prevented?”  he wailed, Continue reading

Letters to the Editor – thoughts on the inappropriate use of popular music

Sir

The power of advertising is unquestionable and people often cite my criticism of what I regard as a bad advert as being proof in point; “Are, but you remember it, so they did their job” will be crowed gleefully at me. Continue reading

fun with word games – would you vote for these men?

As a child I loved those word puzzles that would be in the annual that I got for Christmas and have loved playing with words and language since. Whilst in the USA back in 2008 I played around with a campaign bumper sticker and came up with: Continue reading
