NIKOLA TESLA was a genius. The famous physicist is widely credited as being one of the main men behind the discovery of alternating current and the x-ray – two remarkable achievements. Yet the Serbian, who in modern day parlance made Albert Einstein look a bit dense, didn’t stop there. He also made potentially the […]Read more "Irrecadicate world poverty, cure for cancer?

A WOMAN said this in my hearing last night: “Well, of course, Rolf Harris painted for The Queen – she must have had it torn down as soon as she found out he was a paedophile!” Can’t fault her logic, based on the beliefs of 90 per cent of good folk in this country. The […]Read more "Can you see you who she is yet?"
DONALD TRUMP has been the recipient of an almost unprecedented torrent of abuse since becoming President of the United States. The media was comparatively generous to past holders of this most important of offices, including George Bush senior and junior and Barrack Obama, despite their prolific records of taking America to war. They even continue […]Read more "Whilst the nation focuses on his combover, Trump IS draining the swamp……"
IF you think the seemingly endless arguments about the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union are confusing now, little solace can be taken from when the issues last took centre stage in the 1970s. For a look back at the circumstances both before and immediately after the UK became a member of the […]Read more "Europe: We are reliving the confusion and instability of the 1970s"
THINK of Leicester and names such as Gary Lineker, Jamie Vardy, Mark Selby and, rather absurdly, Richard III come readily to mind. I doubt, however, that any compare as a human being to writer Sue Townsend, who was the subject of a very moving BBC documentary film aired last week. Catapulted to fame as the […]Read more "Leicester’s Sue was worth more than Kings and Queens……"
WE’VE been bombarded with fantasy images of John Lewis and Morrisons at Christmas, well here’s Sainsburys……. The image is from downtown Arnold in Nottinghamshire and, unlike all the clips of glamorous young people having the most wonderful of times, it’s 100 per cent real. Clearly this is an image of the ‘unwanted’ side of the […]Read more "All we need is life, not things"
DO you get the feeling you are regarded by the state as an economic product or a number rather than a unique human being? Whatever our level of education, most of us work for corporations during our most healthy years battling to ensure we have enough money to pay our bills. Some do rather better […]Read more "You are a human being, but treated as a commodity….."
FOR MILLIONS of people The Queen’s traditional Christmas Day speech broadcast at 3pm is a centrepiece of their festive season. They soak up her carefully rehearsed platitudes, raise a toast to their Sovereign and say what a wonderful lady she is. I should know because I was one of them until about five years ago. […]Read more "Queen’s real Christmas message: “I’m still hanging on, but losing control…”"
KARMA is one of the world’s most popular, if not the most popular, religious/spiritual beliefs. In a nutshell, Karma is portrayed as the law of cause and effect – what comes around, whether good or bad, goes around. If you believe in justice, this makes perfect sense. The problem is that, in the form that […]Read more "Karma chameleon – are you ready to get beyond it?"
IT’S one of the iconic stories of The Bible and as relevant today as it has always been. Jesus Christ was led into the desert, where he fasted for 40 days before being tempted by Satan. These are the words quoted directly from Mathew’s Gospel: ‘Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain […]Read more "Fame and fortune is still largely under Satanic control……"
