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. To be honest do I need to write anything further? If you thought Nigel '2 Fags'

Miracle On Downing Street

Following on from yesterday and after a chance to digest the Conservative manifesto Miracle on Downing Street by Mike Bell St. Theresa knows what is good for us, she 'Hallelujahs' for votes (The Mail prints the chorus). She cleans the feet of the blessed rich, with her giving hands on their privatised bits: She's touched The Trump, held the hand of 'God', and now she is saying: 'Come and buy

Wrong and Unable

Well its only week 345 of the general election, and my blisters have got blisters on, but not on my feet, oh no, nothing so comfy, they're on my ears from hearing the phrase 'Strong and stable' ad nauseum, (When in fact the words "Piss-poor" and "Deranged" would surely be more applicable. Theresa May is as strong and stable as Tim Farron's flowing fringe. The main story of the week

What To Do With Young Voters ?

I just want to introduce a young lady  (Her name removed at the authors request) that walked into a discussion I was involved in on Twitter yesterday. Throughout the week people have been calling for young people to get out and register to vote. The call came from more moderate sections of the community on Social media, and that includes us at The Dangerous Globe. For some reason the notoriously extremely right

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

A new and delicious way of delivering 21st Century economics – By Doughnut

I was inspired to write this as a result of reading Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist by Kate Raworth. I was hoping it would help me understand the subject (beyond my O Level 2), and a quick peek at a review told me it was written in a really good and understandable style. It was fun too. The Neoliberal script that economists have been using

Prime Ministers No-Questions Time

So all the excitement of a General Election is upon us, assuming your excitement is derived from listening to a women who looks more at home in a Tena Lady advert, repeatedly failing to tell us why we are having an election. It seems todays blame story is the opposition to Brexit in the Palace of Westminster, I am sure you remember them, they are ones who triggered Article 50

Has Monty Python Hijacked The News ?

Recently the news has been so scary, we have been struggling to laugh at even the Donald. His press "conferences", command of the English language (or lack thereof), posturing and ridiculous hair are usually hilarious, (while simultaneously terrifying), but nothing compares to yesterdays news. In fact, we are convinced that Monty Python hijacked the news on the 19th of April 2017, much to my and I am sure everyones delight.

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em.

I have decided this week that I shall become bigoted and totally insensitive, and adopt the personality of a fully-fledged fuckwit, simply to enable Rupert Murdoch (The man with the craggy face reminiscent of a Pickled Pensioners ballbag) to give me a job spouting vicious inane twaddle…….and all for a modest £300k/p.a. (I was joking about the £300k though, I would do it for half the price)  It does beg
