Dementia Tax – come again?

dementia tax

Getting forgetful are we Mrs May? Either you don’t remember what you stood for or you’ve changed your mind. Again. Now I can do that any day, but when you’re PM, I think we need a leader with just a leetle bit more commitment to their beliefs. No prizes for guessing who said THIS in February of last year […]

Whacky Baccy

    What is it about Tim Farron? Seems like a nice guy and can stand up for himself in public. It’s just – do you want to follow him? His face is a bit like a photofit picture of a politician. If you half close your eyes, you can see Blair, Farage, Kinnock all […]

Love’s Labour’s Lost

love labours lost

Hey ho Jez it’s not an easy ride when you’re committed to footsoldiers like this. What is it about your second-in-command ? She reminds me of the bossiest of bossies in the ‘A’ Level Bossy class. As well as that she doesn’t do adding up and she doesn’t do apologising. Not my cup of tea at […]

My Dad was on the radio after he died

my dad was on the radio

It was you, Dad, who started all of this off. AFTER you died. And John Humphrys too speaking on R4 about his death announcement in The Times (listen below): . Yes, I had my cartoon of you printed there, the very newspaper I worked for many years ago :   And here is my original picture of […]

My father is a total dick

Heads of state kissing

‘My father is a total dick‘     Yes this is what I saw written in my son’s exercise book yesterday. It was just a glance as he doesn’t like me looking at his work nowadays. While by no means always true, I thought an 11 yr old boy should probably have a tad more respect for his […]

Santa’s coming to town

Santa's Coming to Town

  Are you taking the kids to see Santa Claus? Plummy Mummy has another agenda …     I lost my faith aged 6. My sister and I were lying in bed on Christmas Eve pretending to be asleep. The door opened a crack, and we glimpsed the big man in red (though strangely barefoot and […]

You're Fired - Donald Trump

    I’m in shock. I’ve just been fired from my dream job.     Working for the same person for 11 years. Virtually no holiday in all that time. No paid leave, hardly any time off. He expects me to run about after him clearing up his mess. I do his shopping and cooking […]

Justice for Treeza?

European court of justice

Why don’t primary schools teach Logic? What use is History, Geog, Biology, Maths, Eng Lit. and Lang etc. if you can’t make sense. As the Prime Minister of the UK, Theresa May backed Brexit after the June 23rd Referendum. What her private thoughts were on the matter we’ll never really know as her words were obfuscating in […]

Donald Trump what are you like?

Putin's cat

If Donald Trump was a parent anywhere near our school playground, I’d have moved my child to a new school by now after having tried and failed to change his mind on nearly everything. I’ve been left wondering whether his own kids, the older as well as the younger ones, really believe in him and whether we all become […]

Where are you hiding the money?

out of this world

Now UKIP has achieved its stated intention of leaving the EU, perhaps Nigel would kindly return the £600,000 cheque given to the Vote Leave campaign by the BNP. Maybe it’s already been spent on painting out their battle bus with giant phototransfers of Farage’s sneer of cold command, or his alcohol-fuelled lunches. Who could fathom the colossal cost of Johnson salving his […]

I must not lie

Are our children learning anything useful in school these days? I don’t mean times tables or which gory battles were won by which monarch, I’m talking about stuff that the major and even the most minor religions and philosophies tend to include in their How-To manuals. You know, basic info which makes it that bit easier […]

Billions of Bloggers Blogging in Brewery

Oh it's you!

  My second conference at BritMums Live and who did I know? Some familiar faces from two years ago, but otherwise only a couple of acquaintances who’d be there for a while. Not as scary as Stand-Up comedy but it’s up there. But hey, I’m a blogger and this is what bloggers do. But by the end […]

My family and Chris Gayle

Chris Gayle, Jamaica, cricket, Wormsley

Yesterday we took our son and his friend out of school a WHOLE 15 mins EARLY to come here. Wormsley cricket ground in Buckinghamshire is where I spent a glorious afternoon watching two brothers and two nephews play a game of cricket they’ll never forget.     What a chance to see my family playing with the great cricketer, Jamaican Chris […]
