A fool for a Prime Minister and a Minister in the Home Office taking everyone, other than herself, for a fool. Consider this to be problem number one! Then feel free to further consider the consequences of the outrageous activities of a load of public school boys, paid from the public purse, manipulating government policy to enhance their multi...

Putting aside all the Ukrainian issues for a second, something a little more worrying is looming over the horizon in Washington. The first step to creating the 'virtual' dollar is being made as Joe signs an executive order, possibly in this coming week, one that will set the wheels in motion. Have we not learnt the lessons yet? Just look...

Biden has approved sending US troops to Poland and other East European countries in an effort to 'assist' the Ukrainians in their current struggles. Sending in 'a few' and then sending in 'a few' more was how the Vietnam debacle started, so does Biden know something the rest of us don't? Is he a fool being further fooled by others,...

There will be 'trouble-at-mill' if the EU Commission pushes the issue of natural gas and nuclear energy to be branded 'sustainable!' However, as expected with the individual members of the EU, and one of the reasons the UK left it, is that none of them can agree anything between them. The practicalities are of course that many who demand immediate...

To see this copious, nay corpulent figure at the despatch box today offering parliament, and therefore the whole the nation, a lesson in management philosophy resulting the onset of uncontrolled inflation at levels not seen since the mid seventies (inflation 13% and mortgage interest rates at 16%) and a commitment to support the beginnings of WWIII...

Macron's recent visit to Ireland became an excuse to hammer the politicians there to sign up to a so-called 'Global Corporate Tax Rate' of 15%. However, the rate in Ireland, an EU country, is fixed at 12.5% and the reason for that is to attract International businesses to Dublin. There they will spend their Euro's on offices, Guinness, restaurants,...

Yes, it's time to come clean on what has generally been termed the 'VIP Lanes' or, as others might see it ... the 'Old Boy' network in full working order. In any other country, setting up a privileged route of direct access to government ministers, in order to obtain lucrative government contracts, would be called CORRUPTION! However, this bunch of...

Mr Harry Dent, economist and founder of HS Dent Publishing is in fear of our future during 2022 with a forecast of a markets crash to end all crashes. Is he right? Probably ... The first three months of this year are expected to show a major downturn with the peak of the crash to resemble the 1929/ 1932 event....

With Germany's Mr. Scholtz new coalition government settling in, the big question on the table is the 'Nord Stream 2' project, bringing gas to Germany from Russia. Scholz reckons it's nothing to do with him ... it's a private business venture. Well, with 100,000 Russian troops knocking on the backdoor of the EU, it appears to be a little more...

Do the young stalwarts of Ukraine love their country enough to fight hard for it? What happens if the Russians begin a journey that could end up with them knocking on the door of the eastern borders of the EU? What will the erudite Ursula von de Leyen do then? With belligerent Belarus guarding one flank and the Romanians guarding...
