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 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 […]

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 […]

International Women’s Day 2016 …

Equal pay

What do these women have in common? Angela, Hillary, Melinda, Christina, Sheryl, Michelle, Malala, Mishal, Libby and Lyse ? They get out there and do stuff. They probably don’t say, “Can I get everyone coffee before we start?” And if they do, they do it mindfully without letting themselves be distracted from their true goals. […]

Nobody Died

Jeff performing Stand-Up

Nobody died – and nobody left. 12 days ago I was sitting on a bench in Soho, London when I was plucked from obscurity and put on stage as a Stand-Up comedian in central London by the great man of comedy himself, Arthur Smith. Here’s an excerpt from my debut performance   Arthur had been my unpredictable but […]

Stand Up

Stand Up

    How do you get your family to do what you want them to? Embarrass them. Always works for me. Recently – on the Comedy Workshop in Greece – we got the chance to show off big time. It was fun. I loved it. Came back home with a whole set of tools to make relations […]
