Pass me another Labour Party, this one’s split

On writing the blog post I always wanted to write and how Seema Chandwani wrote it instead The UK Labour Party has been reborn, and this time it is as a straightforward democratic Socialist party under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn. The personal battles he has faced, the insults and assaults on his character and his politics have been relentless during the 2017 GE campaign.  I suppose we should have

Echo Chambers

It’s too easy to hate, to say with screams, to find alt-solutions in final extremes, your volume racked up In your echo chamber, Knowing your hatred Reverbs beyond there; Too may such rooms, with men pushing in these are the places where the end begins.

The Un-united Kingdom

It’s has been a traumatic and tragic week for our wonderful country, (formerly known as the United Kingdom), and it is difficult to write anything at all amusing, but then Paul Nuttall hove’s into view and the satire flows like a Parisians bum after a feast of Escargots way past their sell by date.

Fifty Shades of Magnolia

As we enter the second week of the 'most important general election of a generation' according to Theresa May, and a phrase never over used, she still has not demurred from her 'Fifty Shades of Magnolia' platitudes, promising absolutely nothing, and likely to deliver very much less for the hard working families that her lousy party has impoverished. The one highlight in this “B4 election (Biased Brexit Based Bullshit) is
