DISGUSTING!

It is not just the good citizens of Tunbridge Wells who find the extraordinary antics of US President Donald Trump to be disgusting. The American broadcaster Fox News lambasted his behaviour and pronouncements at a press conference in Helsinki which followed his chaotic visit  to the UK (see next story) Favouring Russian president Putin's denials of any involvement in the…

IT’S OK M’AM – THE BLIGHTER’S GONE

It takes a lot to upset the English but messing with the Queen is one of those things that is simply not done. Walking in front of her whilst inspecting  troops would have got a lesser mortal banged up in The Tower but then telling a journalist what she had said over tea? That could get you penal servitude for…

LADIES FIGHT BACK

Fed up with (or "OF" if you're a pedantic twit)  fictional  TV progs,  films and novels running plots where the main female character, or lesser female roles in sub-plots, has been abused/sexually assaulted/generally duffed up or whatever else men are frequently accused of doing to women. Tired of the fact that, so often, these carefully crafted but irrelevant background details…
