With plans to invade the Ukraine sometime soon, it looks as if Mr. Putin is not very happy about warnings being issued by 'Sleepy' Joe! Is this another Vietnam in the making or early notice of WWIII, a war that will bring to an end life and civilisation on this planet as we know it? However, it's all a bit...

'Brexit is now secure. The challenge for the Government now is to deliver on the opportunities it gives us.' Yes ... you read it right! That is what Frosty said in his resignation letter. Talk about the blind leading the blind. There was no mention of the Frost agreement to allow the involvement of the ECJ in the NI Protocol...

So, now it's out in the public domain; M. Macron wants to take the UK to court over fishing licences. Despite 93% of applications made being granted, he wants the lot. But who's court might he drag the Brit's into in order to vent his wrath at the antics of Boris' army of fine fishermen; old sea-salts who will have...

Someone said this week 'if this was happening in Surrey, service would have been restored within hours' ... and this is probably true. However, because it's not and the North East is bearing the brunt of the inefficiencies of power companies, Boris has little or no interest in the matter. People have been without electricity of more than a week...

In a recent announcement, energy giant Royal Dutch Shell plans to move its Tax residence from the Netherlands to the UK. Well, that's a bit of a surprise for EU President Ursula and the mischievous miniature Macron. The Dutch government are not too pleased either! So, what is it Shell see that Ursula does not? We think there is much...

We've said it before and we'll say it again ... what a great non-event the Glasgow COP has been with just about everyone COPPPING out and no-one COPPING in! Even the Swedish super-child failed to make much of an impression ... but everyone now seems to have got the message ... 'buy lots of sandbags'. We SeventiesPlus will be long...

There are reports that a certain brothel in Austria is offering free vouchers to anyone over 18. They must however, agree to get vaccinated due to the fact that government has banned all un-vaccinated people from what are generally described as 'public spaces'. Well, that's MARKETING for you. Give that man a raise!

The words 'financial stresses' have been used to describe the bum-itching problem of Chinese super property developer Evergrande and its possible effects on the US economy. Another Lehman Brothers event may well be on the cards and although some dismiss the situation as irrelevant, the much deeper thinkers are forecasting a crisis. Are the...

Whilst some of us, including the EU fat cats, ponder the foolish actions of a British Prime Minister over the NI Protocol situation, the EU has much more to consider in terms of security in the east. Alexander Lukashenko is pushing Poland at the Belarus border to a point where the EU reckons his 'gangster style tactics' could spark military...

Well, we think it's COP OUT! The people who really matter ... are NOT there! The people who THINK they matter seem to be spending more time in front of the numerous giant sized graphics taking 'selfies' than making sure the half million population of the Maldives does not disappear under water next year. Even Thunberg seems to be getting...
