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!

So, my Capita friends, just try it!

I am, as yet, not completely recovered from my infection, and the problems therein: but an compelled to state; categorically and definitely, that I shall never, ever send my bank statement and personal details to the National Propaganda Machine which also…

Silly argument—— Straight answer

The Cavendish Coalition– which represents UK health and social care groups – says it is gravely concerned regarding immigration proposals which they say will seriously affect staff shortages in Care Homes. They claim that the current proposals would not allow enough…

A message to Local Plod

For the attention of the Police and Crime Commissioner Northumbria Copied to The Chief Constable Northumbria Copied to the  I.O.P.C. Madam, Sir, I learn through the Press that the Marxist/Communist/Anarchist crowd who pose under the title blacklivesmatter were proposing to hold…

I just wonder?

Further to the attacks in Forbury Gdns. in Reading, and the general MSM onslaught against Radical Muslim actions and terrorism, and after some thought, I just wonder if there wasn’t a less sinister reason for  the attacks on these men:…

So, I am forced to change.

I resent the fact that I now have to alter purchasing and banking arrangements that have been in place, in my personal life, for over thirty-five years. Solely because of the blackmail and blackguarding of companies, banks and insurance companies…
