Wills and Kate Tat for Sale

by Vicola England In case you’ve been stuck in a cave, I shall enlighten you about a little-talked about fact from the UK – Prince William and his girlfriend Kate are now engaged. It’s wall to wall coverage. Every ruddy channel and radio station is talking about it. Prize for the most pointless bit of […]

Harmony or Hatred – What's Really Going on in Multicultural Britain?

by Vicola England Once again the issue of Islam in Britain has raised its head, this time courtesy of the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester in case you were wondering. The Bishop has announced that Islamic extremists have turned parts of Britain into ‘no-go areas’ for those who don’t follow Mohammad, stating […]

The Stoning of Sister Mc Bride

by Vicola England The Catholic Church, not exactly a stranger to controversy, has once again found itself in the spotlight, but not for the usual reasons of sexual abuse by priests, or one of its clergy letting rip with a one-liner that breaks every equality law known to humankind. No — this is a new […]

A Letter to the (British) Department of Health

Dear Department of Health, Opposition Parties and anyone else who has an unhealthy interest in what I consume. I have sat in my office with the radio on since returning to work after the New Year break, and I am noticing a recurring theme on the news bulletins, namely that alcohol is about to bring […]

What Were They Thinking?

Anyone care to take a punt on who the racist pictured is? Some ape-knuckled nobody with a string of convictions for football violence, and a promising career in handling stolen goods? Nope. That is one of our brand, spanking new Members of the European Parliament, Nick Griffin. He is no longer in the charming boys […]

Swine Flu – Preparedness – Are YOU Ready?

Swine flu – it’s all the papers and the radio are full of at the moment. Apparently our government is ‘fully prepared’ for the outbreak, which as anyone who has lived here for any length of time can tell you, is government speak for, “We’re completely f*cked”. Since apparently most people in the world are […]

Madonna ─ Proving that While Money Can't Buy You Happiness, it can Buy You a Child

Sometimes I really do wonder what goes on in the heads of celebrities, and nothing demonstrates the weirdness that is celeb-world more than Madonna. Some people when their marriage goes belly up buy a new car, get their hair restyled, buy a new pair of posh shoes, but Madonna trumps all others by buying…another Malawian […]

Harriet Harmon, Wanker of the Week

The day after the US gives itself a fine clean sheet by swearing in a brand, shiny, new president, British politics follows by…..offering us a new candidate for “Wanker of the Week.” How marvellous. We are so proud. Below, for your viewing pleasure, is BBC News coverage of protesters who have taken residence on the […]

The London Olympics – Let’s Get Involved!

Politicians, mainly the ones who are involved in this harebrained scheme, have been complaining that there are those in the provinces and indeed in the capital itself who are not showing the proper enthusiasm and reverence for the multi-billion pound scheme that is London’s 2012 Olympics. I say piffle, why would we up north possibly […]

BRATS

Yesterday I did the shopping at the market and noticed a woman there trailing two kids round with her. Dressed in head-to-toe Nike, they whined their way around, putting whatever they felt like in the trolley, and screeching like banshees every time the mother dared to question anything they’d added. I think I spotted some […]
