IRONY KLAXON - The Freedom Pass


The so called "Freedom Pass" is a contradiction in terms. 

Any state that requires you to have a pass in order for you to live your life freely, is not a free state!

Don't Fall For The Banks' Bullshit!


Certain banks and financial institutions are proposing that those who work from home after the pandemic should pay more tax, in order to support those who have to travel to the office.



These institutions are not thinking of others, but merely themselves. 

For you see dear reader, they have large sums of money tied up in commercial property investments.

The "Special" Relationship Debunked


Every time there is a change of President in the USA, the media and certain politicians/political commentators wax lyrical about the so called "special" relationship and fret whether it will continue under whoever is the new President.

Whilst personal chemistry (or lack of it) between the President and the Prime Minister can be a help or hindrance to the optics of the interactions between the USA and UK, there has never been a "special" relationship in the sense that the media and politicians would like to have us believe.

The USA and UK, because of their shared heritage, history and economic/security ties will continue to work together no matter who is President or Prime Minister. However, never be under any illusion that the UK will be treated "specially", the USA always acts in what it perceives to be its own best interests!
