UKIP, Dead but won’t lie down, (the gift that keeps on taking).

Meet Richard Billington, a UKIPPER of very little principle, and judging by the Emails he puts his name to, he is a complete and utter moron. From his pre-election blurb: - Richard, who lives in Foxton near Market Harborough, taught for 14 years and now runs a financial services limited company. He joined UKIP in 1990. Richard, said: “Should you elect me, my focus would be to serve the electorate

Revolving Door fantasy

George(Gideon)Osborne hit the revolving door when it was spinning at full tilt He mis-timed his run and had to throw himself in to avoid injury, he had set the controls for Fleet Street, somewhere between the Telegraph and the Times. Blam!, his body hit the spinning glass and he was propelled through at incredible speed, crashing to the pavement dazed As he came to, he looked up and a cold

Article 30 2.0

Obviously there have only been two stories in the news this week... A US state attempting to make being a wanker illegal, (whilst not placing Trump in the state penitentiary) and Kellyanne Conway thinking that a microwavable baked potato had been spying on her boss. She maybe didn't say that, but hey, it makes just as much sense any way you look at it. Seriously though, as Brexit boredom enters

Handbag Hammond’s Budget Backhanders

Well it has been a funny old week in British politics, unless of course you were unfortunate enough to hear Philip Hammond's budget funnies. His budget made as much sense as a Louise Mensch Sunday Politics interview,.. and she makes David Icke appear rational. So as the wheels fell off the budget, and 'Spreadshit' Phil became as popular with Tory backbenchers as Douglas Carswell at a Nigel Farage dinner, the

The Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn – a reply to Owen Jones by Tom London

That’s Quite Enough Donald

You may have noticed that there has not been a great deal of "The Donalds" news on The Dangerous Globe recently, as there are far more important "goings-on" to report, than the rantings of a deranged geriatric. That said, we have taken an exception to his recent comments on the US needing more nuclear warheads, so hence a little article on this big subject. We all know the problem, or the Catch 22, when

Fukushima, the slowest, most catastrophic train wreck in the world.

On the morning of 12th March 2011, I reported for work on the Seismic exploration crew I was working on in S.E. Asia. At breakfast there was a lot of talk about a massive earthquake that had happened the previous day and was so strong that it had obliterated several seismic records we had made at the time. Considering that we were using explosives drilled into solid rock, that’s not

A couple of days ago I couldn’t even spell Precariat, now I am one

I learned a new word yesterday, ... Precariat, which Wiki defines as “In sociology and economics, the precariat is a social class formed by people suffering from precarity, which is a condition of existence without predictability or security, affecting material or psychological welfare.” This class has been tagged as “The New Dangerous Class”, in the blog Working Class perspectives, which appeared in October 2014, just as the book entitled A
