2020 Jul 04 - Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested

Ok, this week it's a bit of an unfunny subject so let's start with a crime-related joke: A young man robbed a bank wearing a suit made of many mirrors. But he turned himself in after taking some time to reflect. Luckily the judge was lenient as he saw a lot of himself in the young man.

But back to the topic at hand, Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this week in America after an international hunt ended with the FBI showing up a a mansion in New Hampshire. She didn't own a Ford Bronco so they quickly took her to jail where she'll probably have lots to talk about with a lawyer. Ghislaine is supposedly an eye-witness to lots of crimes involving formally alive and mysteriously now dead Jeffrey Epstein and a lot of his former associates from the Clintons to Prince Andrew to Elon Musk are probably sweating now. Apart of course from Prince Andrew who is famously unable to sweat. Except of course when he's being photographed doing so.

Ghislaine has been described in the news as Epsteins former girlfriend but unlike many of his girlfriends, she's an adult and be facing some serious criminal charges relating to human trafficking and so many are suggesting that she'll cut a deal and offer up information on everything that went on. I once heard someone say that they didn't trust stairs because they were always up to something, but in this case there's an cadre of rich and powerful people likely up to something, ready to prevent any stories being revealed and that of course is why everyone is wondering how long it will be until a tragic accident occurs. Possibly in the same prison as her friend Jeffrey was staying. my betting is that the Coronavirus will be responsible this time and that a high profile court case will be yet another big event missing from our tv screens this year. Certainly the prospect of Prince Andrew being called to give evidence at a trial must make him rather glad that she wasn't arrested when she was at her other house in France, because the British Royals seem to have bad luck when they visit that country, and having watched that interview, Prince Andrew is certainly no stranger to car crashes.

But of course this is all speculation & rumour for now. Without answers or evidence it's as much use as asking what the speed of lightning would be if it didn't zigzag. Personally I'm happy to wait until the judge or the coroner make their mind up and come back with something conclusive and in the meantime if you're that interested in gossip, go online and look up the lives of Robert Maxwell's other children because they give soap operas a run for their money. I guess that Ghislane therefore had more in common with Prince Andrew and his family than you'd think.

2020 Feb 08 - Great Week for Trump

Two major news stories to come out of America this week leaving president Trump happier than that time that he found a loophole saying he didn't have to hire any of the idiots on that tv show of his.

The first main story was the acquittal in the senate impeachment trial, much as that result was never in any doubt, I've seen romantic comedies with more twists and suspense, joking of course because I don't want those sorts of films. At no point did anyone expect Adam Schiff to turn around like ......

2019 Feb 09 - Jeff Bezos Blackmailed

Celebrity gossip news this week as Jeff Bezos accused the publishers of National Enquirer of trying to blackmail him, in a salacious story that really brought home the difference between real world billionaires and those we grew up with such as Bruce Wayne or Scrooge McDuck who to my knowledge was never involved in a extramarital affair although he has been known to express a worrying predilection for gold coins which in the US feature a picture of Native American lady Sacagawea.

Anyway Shortly ......

2018 Sep 01 - Anti-Semitism in the Labour Party

Ok, Frank Field and possibly others are finally quitting the Labour Party so it's time to get round to talking about anti-semitism and Jeremy Corbyn's purposeful woeful attempt to eradicate it. Until a couple of years ago the Labour Party was run by Ed Miliband, someone who claimed to be not just jewish but a modern sort of jewish where you get to eat bacon sandwiches and have your own set of ten commandments carved up except instead of Judaeo-Christian laws they're actually vague promises about ......

2018 Feb 03 - FBI Memo Released

This week Washington DC was looking forward to the release of an FBI memo with the sort of anticipation you'd more readily associate with an launch of a new iPhone or a perhaps the release of a video in which Piers Morgan conveys empathy or genuine selflessness.

In the end, there was a story and it is a scandal but in the past few weeks we'd all been promised something so shocking that the public would see the 'deep state' for what it is and demand that the FBI be disbanded. But so far really t ......

2017 Dec 31 - End of the Year

It's the end of December and the end of 2017 and it's possibly the end of the line if you're the sort of person who originally became a politician or a tv celebrity to get close to the young female interns. Of course I'm joking, Kevin Spacey got into show business for the young male interns, he's probably looking forward to 2018 because he thinks there's 2000 of them.

Talking about "end of the line" though, one of the stories I'm sure we'll see a lot more about in the future was this week's ann ......

2017 Dec 16 - Brexit & Alabama

Big political moves in Westminster and Alabama this week; two places that don’t often have much in common although if you’re a politician from the West Midlands and fancy a holiday to America, why not spend a week at the Hilton in Birmingham - Birmingham Alabama that is - and try submitting the 1st class airline ticket as an “honest mistake” ?

But first let’s discuss the Brexit vote in Westminster. Essentially the parliament will now get to vote on whether they like Theresa May’s de ......

2017 Nov 04 - Kevin Spacey and Dodgy Politicians

There’s that old saying in show business: never work with children or animals, especially if it’s pornography. Kevin Spacey though - he’s one of those “do as I say, not as I do” kind of celebrities though. In the 1995 film The Usual Suspects, he played a ruthless criminal who brutally murdered people and did a lot of bad stuff but even Keyser Soze had lines he didn’t think appropriate to cross. Now the latest series of House Of Cards is on hiatus because HBO would rather keep the sho ......

2017 Oct 13 - Brexit Bill (again)


A lot of page filler about Brexit in the papers this week. Essentially nothing of substance has happened for a few days and there’s no proper developments as such. Yet at the same time, there’s no debacles from the White House this week and from a legal perspective, the newspaper lawyers would certainly prefer that their columnists discuss rumours about Phillip Hammond than those surrounding Harvey Weinstein’s ongoing ‘legal difficulties’

The supposed ‘Brexit Battle’ is that Phil ......
