The Right Choice

by duncanr

the depressing thing is not just that if she ‘phoned a friend’ she would likely be advised to choose ‘D” but that if she ‘asked the audience’ a majority would probably also choose ‘D’

Cash for Votes

by duncanr

following the disastrous failure of her plan to increase the size of the Conservative party’s working majority in the UK parliament by calling a snap election which resulted, instead, in the Conservatives losing their working majority, Theresa May has promised an extra £1 billion funding to Northern Ireland in return for DUP support to allow the conservatives to hang on to power as a minority government

this has provided a rich source of material for cartoonists . . .

Theresa May: Contrasting Messages

by duncanr

in just over a week, voters in the UK go to the polling booths to elect a new government

supporters of the conservative leader have released a flattering song in hindi – to attract support from desi voters

it’s a catchy little number

in the interest of balance, however, it’s only fair to mention that her opponents have released an equally catchy tune

When Trump met May

by duncanr

trump-and-maya UK PM called May
went off to the US of A
While there she met Trump,
a big orange chump,
who said “from this day
do all that I say.
If you’re lucky I’ll give you a hump

O.K. not poet laureate quality, I admit – I’m sure others can do better!

please share your thoughts, in rhyme, of this meeting between Trump and May as a comment to this post

The difference between government and opposition

by NobblySan

I think  most people  are familiar with the case of Gary McKinnon, so I won’t give a whole heap of background.

His fight against extradition to the USA, where he faces the prospect of dying a lonely and unpleasant death in prison, has forced a test of the morals and integrity of the new coalition government.

When in opposition, both Cameron and Clegg spoke out in favour of McKinnon’s case, and publicly slated the now-redundant Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, for allowing McKinnon’s extradtion. In a predictable move, McKinnon’s legal team are now lobbying the new home secretary, Therea May,  to overturn her predecessor’s decision.

So, Messrs Cameron and Clegg, you are now in positions of power and authority; will you still object to McKinnon’s extradition if it is now your own cabinet member who is rubber-stamping it?

Tough decision, lads and lass, tough decisions. We’re all watching to see whether your previous stance was just empty rhetoric, and hence whether or not we can trust you.
