After all the Platitudes the ToryDups stick Two Fingers up at Police, Nurses & Firefighters

Over the last few weeks the emergency services have demonstrated just how amazing they are in spite of the cuts to their numbers and resources and that they’ve not had a proper pay rise for 7 years. Last night the Tory/DUP coalition of evil chaos cheered enthusiastically as they voted down Labour’s amendment to end the cap on their pay. Now we know what they really think of them.   MPs vote to reject Labour’s…

As ToryDUP takes us back to the 19th Century Ireland elects a Gay Prime Minister

As ToryDUP takes us back to the 19th Century Ireland elects a Gay Prime Minister

When my Irish Father first took myself, my brother and sister as children to visit Ireland, Leo Varadkar was not even born. The Republic’s new Taioseach was born on 18th January 1979. He was appointed leader of Fine Gael on 2nd June 2017 and appointed Taioseach on 14 June 2017 by Dáil Éireann at the tender age of 38. Not only is Leo Ireland’s first openly gay Prime Minister, he’s also the son of an…

Paul Dacre has thrown his biggest hissy fit yet!

Paul Dacre has thrown his biggest hissy fit yet!

Well it looks like Martin Rowson at The Guardian has REALLY hit a nerve with this one. The Daily Heil, the newspaper that brought us “Hurrah for the Brownshirts” and “Isn’t Mr Hitler wonderful” and has spent the last decade demonising Immigrants, refugees and the EU has published a diatribe calling the likes of the Guardian and the independent media sites that challenge their bigoted agenda “Fascists of the Left”. After spending a couple of…

Greater Fool 2.0 – Contributors wanted

With Greater Fool 2.0 I’m looking for contributors to help make it a more representative and informative platform. To that end I’m looking to collaborate with other people who’ve perhaps liked the idea of writing articles themselves on politics and current affairs but perhaps don’t have time to manage a full blog themselves or don’t want the extra work of keeping it up and running. If you fit that description I’d love to hear from…

Ditch the labels and unite #WeAreLabour

Ditch the labels and unite #WeAreLabour

Since last Friday morning we’ve seen many of the MPs who failed to support Jeremy Corbyn as leader and so called columnists of the left who wrote him off come back to the fold eating various degrees of humble pie. The likes of Polly Toynbee and Nick Cohen have admitted they were wrong and many Labour MPs have declared that Jeremy Corbyn now has a mandate to lead. Many of us knew it all along…

Queues at polling stations. The UK is hungry for change #GE17 #GOTV

Queues at polling stations. The UK is hungry for change #GE17 #GOTV

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX said years ago that if you give British people an actual alternative worth voting for, they would. They certainly have one now in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. There’s a consensus that turnout is key in this election – and that a high turnout will favour Labour (at least in England and Wales). The SKWAWKBOX is receiving reports of queues at polling stations all around the country. One polling station attendant, who…

Exclusive: May, Rudd ‘stripped anti-extremism unit to focus on #Brexit’ #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX As the Press Association reported, Theresa May – in the preface to the announcement of her planned assault on the very human rights she says islamist terrorists hate – talked of a ‘security service review’, supposedly to allow security services to “call out extremism here in the United Kingdom”: Theresa May expects security service review Theresa May has said she expects police and security services to launch a review after three terrorists slipped…

Never had a party political broadcast make you want to applaud? Watch. #GE17

Never had a party political broadcast make you want to applaud? Watch. #GE17

It perfectly encapsulates what is great about Labour, what is great about this nation. It portrays the terrible threat facing us and our NHS from the Tory party that despises it and routinely lies about it. But it is also full of that rarest commodity in modern politics: hope. It shows the heart and heroism of the people who work in this country’s greatest achievement – the NHS. You’ll fall in love with it, and with them, all over…

In 2016 Corbyn was mocked for this. Nobody’s laughing now #GE17 #Police

In 2016 Corbyn was mocked for this. Nobody’s laughing now #GE17 #Police

The SKWAWKBOX When Jeremy Corbyn instituted the new practice of asking questions from the public in PMQs (Prime Minister’s Questions), he was mocked and jeered by arrogant Tory MPs each time he mentioned a member of the public – which in itself speaks volumes. But one question in particular echoes deafeningly now. Late last year, just before Philip Hammond’s Autumn Statement was due, Corbyn stood to ask a question of Theresa May from ‘a taxpayer’…

BBC didn’t want you to see this #Corbyn video. Wonder why #GE17

BBC didn’t want you to see this #Corbyn video. Wonder why #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX On Sunday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a short – less than 10 minutes – but towering speech that Sky News covered in full. And the BBC covered not at all. The speech is terrifying to the Establishment, because the statesmanlike Corbyn looks and sounds every inch the ‘Prime Minister in waiting’ that they’ve always told us he couldn’t be – and with his personal approval ratings now exceeding those of the Tory…
