An eclectic collection of thoughts & ideas which have set me thinking, or more often cussing. On this blog I promise to write the truth, the whole truth, or something like the truth, so help me God!

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Roger, a young fellow African, first sang this song in 1975. He was born in Kenya, studied medicine in Cape Town, but left to go into music.
The last Farewell epitomises the nineteenth century, when our ships ruled the world. Now we are just a small colony, with little say, in the new German/French empire.
