Born in England in 1940 in the middle of the Blitz, the youngest of three brothers, he survived an early death after a gas leak filled his bedroom in Jarrow. His sister, who was born ten years later, died at a tragically-early age of sixteen from leukaemia. He joined the Merchant Navy after an Engineering education, and spent seven-odd years living a footloose existence at sea, but met the light of his life, the girl who is now his wife of now forty-seven years while in London. Lived in South Africa for eighteen years while raising three kids, all of whom are now Engineers of varying disciplines themselves. Worked in Africa, and then in England in heavy Engineering, on water, sewage, power and electricity projects, watching the steady decline, in Great Britain, of all types of manufacturing and engineering excellence for the next twenty-five years. This decline mainly due to a combination of political interference and political ineptitude. Likes and loves his family, giving special attention to the three Grandsons who are all both independent and always smiling! Is very proud of his three adult kids. Interests range from politics to blogging and writing, from classical music to photography. Is taking a special interest these days in local council political matters. He has had two books published, one of which is a book in both print and Kindle, and is a novel about Right-wing politics, with four more available as e-books. Politically, he is inclined towards the Right, but is constantly depressed by what is on offer on that side of the political divide. Dislikes the very idea of the European Union, and is forlornly awaiting any Party to keep their promises regarding that bureaucracy-ridden place by the offer of a Referendum. High on any wish-list is an importation of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States into the political life of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so that once more Freemen can speak Freely, without recourse to euphemisms and double-speak!

…and the Truth shall set you Free!

Really impressive slice of Investigative Journalism from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, aired on Breitbart. The whole thing is done as a public service to the nation, and what a service it is! Remember the chaos which resulted from the Telegraph’s…

No Deal is better than a Bad Deal!

Fact:- The EU has, as its ‘One True God’ (Because it famously ‘does not do religion’); the Court of Justice of the European Union. Virtually everything which is promulgated, delegated, ordered or controlled by the EU is subject to confirmation…

Just a thought…..

Before the fire which rendered so many homeless, and 58 (and counting) dead, I just had an idea to check what sort of a place Grenfell Tower actually was; what was being offered, what was available? Was it bare walls…

#HowDoYouLikeThemApples?

I note the headlines surrounding the attack upon worshippers who were emerging from the Finsbury Park Mosque. I also note the slight but subtle differences between the bloke behind the white van’s steering wheel, and just about every other terrorist…
