A clueless view of Britain

You’ve probably gathered by now that I don’t respect our national politicians as highly as perhaps I should.

Since when have Scooby Snacks been good for kids?

Yikes! Apparently Scooby Doo is the healthiest cartoon character of all. Even though he and best friend Shaggy spend all their time talking about mountains of food and ‘Scooby Snacks’ when they’re not running away from ghosts, ghouls and baddies.

Sorry but we are far too polite

Elton John got it wrong when he wrote that awful song: Sorry seems to be the hardest word.

Ten years on... and still not a clue about Middle East

Women should get equal pay

It should be banned but it’s still happening. No, I don’t mean another series of Celebrity Big Brother. I mean the unfair differences between men’s and women’s pay.

Embarrassed by ignorant Brits

I’ve just returned from a holiday in Malaga. It’s going to take me the next few months to pay for, but it was well worth it. (5 comments)

Good old Friday nights

FRIDAY night used to involve a trip to the takeaway to place the order, a quick nip in the off-licence to get some beer or wine, and a visit to the video store to rent a film.

Could bad boy Michael have been learning and earning?

andy learnignres1 Well done to all those who got the A-levels they needed and have got into the course of their choice at the university they wanted to go to. Sincere bad luck to all those who didn’t quite do as they expected to.

A rebate for roadworks?

ANYONE bleating about the roadworks underway in the centre of Carlisle, or Workington (or anywhere else in the county for that matter) should take a little educational detour.

Want a Big Solution? Have a bit more pride

Do we have a Big Society? Do we have any sort of society? David Cameron’s woolly-headed, touchy-feely, meaningless phrase has suddenly come into focus in the wake of the riots that have hit England. All of a sudden it has become meaningful.

Exercise is good for you!

Oi! You lot, stand to attention! All right, sit up straight then. Okay, okay, stay as you are, lolling about on the sofa.

At least the French don’t regard us as WKD

What defines us as Brits? Is it our natural-born ability to cope with constant rain? Our inability to live in a climate that is anything other than mild and ‘not too bad for this time of year’?

Official! 40 is the new 30

What I find most disturbing about turning 40 in five weeks’ time is not my receding hairline or expanding waistline. It’s the fact that I’ve only just got used to being 30.

Remind you of your student days gents?

It's good to see that David Cameron and Boris Johnson have cut short their holidays to come back and see the horrific destruction spreading through our towns and cities. It may remind them of their student days.

Black Friday tomorrow. Will you be fighting for a bargain?

Sure will. Big savings are worth pushing and shoving for

No way. Another American import I want nothing to do with

Love a bargain but, from experience, I can waste too much money on stuff I don't need
