Shake a tail feather baby! Schools that refuse to relax their strict dress code in searing heat refuse to let young boys wear shorts. However, they are finding that astute young pupils have their own way of dealing with the problem.
The 14 year old boys of Isca College Exeter askedif they could wear shorts, but were firmly told they had to stick to school rules. A jocular remark that they were free to wear skirts was taken seriously by five bright sparks, who turned up in girls skirts. The next day, the rebellion had swelled to 30. Continue reading
Oafish Jeremy Corbyn showed his contempt for our much loved Queen by refusing to bow to her in Parliament today as is the tradition. Instead he smirked and winked like the outright yob he is. Corbyn despises the Royals, he despises British tradition and he despises our history.
Even worse, he failed to ask about the health of the 96 year old Duke of Edinburgh. This behaviour, on the occasion of the Queen’s Speech along with his silly statement that private property should be stolen from its owners to house the homeless and his insistence on a “Day of Rage” will not endear him to ordinary people. Continue reading

There is an outpouring of sympathy for the victims of Grenfell Tower, but sadly, Jeremy Corbyn went completely over the top. It is one thing for the wacko great grandpops to come over all cuddly and harmless, it is quite another to urge people to break the law.
A typical Corbyn supporter
The answer to finding housing for desperate victims of the tragedy is to take over empty flats said the wacko Labour leader. It is true that there are empty flats in Kensington, but commandeering private property is theft. Encouraging people to steal is not appropriate behaviour for a party leader. The appalling thing is he clearly meant it. Continue reading

She’s feisty. She has been part of a political family all her life. She is a tomboy, who can field a catch like a pro. She has tussled with brothers all her life, all much bigger than her.
She is mouthy and can make a point as forcefully as the best of them. She knew sorrow and heartache as a child. She is no spoilt princess, who throws hissy fits and whines if she breaks a nail. She has strong, clear views. She can argue her case until the cows come home and until they go out again for milking in the morning! And milk them too! Continue reading
Our Queen has always been quiet and reserved, but survivors drew on her strength and sympathy as she toured the crowds of distraught survivors of Grenfell Towers with Prince William.
This is the worst thing I have ever seen, said the Queen quietly. “She looked straight into my eyes” said a young mum ” I felt how she cared.” The Queen is aware of the “dark mood” of the country right now, and she understands that it is a direct consequence of the terrible tragedies that have hit London in the past few months.

Yesterday when dealing with the Grenfell Tower inferno, our fire fighters were epic. The courage shown by the firemen as without hesitation they laid their lives on the line by charging into the burning building to save the terrified victims was on par with the heroism shown by the firemen of 9/11. These men are legends. No words can convey high enough praise for their guts and dedication.
When I attended Mayor’s Question Time every month, I learnt fires are now down a massive 60% over ten years and this has to be good news. Furniture is now non flammable. We have central heating and efficient fire alarms. Even inventions like oven chips play their part in reducing fires. That is why 20% of fire stations have been closed. No fire fighter was made redundant. They were all offered either voluntary redundancy or transfers to other stations. Continue reading
