B A Dummy – travel via Heathrow Terminal 5

It could only happen in 21st Century shambolic Britain. For many, many years Terminal 5 at London Heathrow has been in one stage or another of being planned or being built. Just the process of building the place has taken over 5 years. So you’d have thought that every eventuality would have been planned for, […]

Kubica marked out as future champ – but how do you pronounce his name?

BMW are the surprise of the year so far. Yes, everyone thought they would do well, and certainly be in the top three teams (ie 5th and 6th places) but they are instead nearly leading the Formula One World Championship. OK, that’s a bit like being “nearly pregnant” but it is a Boolean variable. Off […]

Unsettled McLaren mismanage Malaysia GP as Ron flies in late and Lewis loses it

Originally Ron Dennis wasn’t going to come to Malaysia as he had to attend “important family business that nobody wishes for” back in the UK. Whatever unpleasantness it was isn’t important here but was important enough to Ron for him to say he wouldn’t be at Sepang. Wouldn’t he?  Well, the McLaren team made all […]

Should men be allowed in US politics?

Seems to me we’ve heard all this before, and we’re going to hear it all again. Big men in big powerful positions who just can’t resist the temptation of a bit of sex on the side. Why do they do it? Why do they put the success of their whole careers, lives, and families at […]

The Democrat Conundrum: Vote with Head or Heart?

Democrat’s are in an unenviable position right now. Two excellent candidates, either one of which would make a great President. But both pretty equally matched in the delegate hunt right now. So, which one do voters like the best? But perhaps the question really should be which one is most likely to win against the […]

Liberal Democrat non-leader splits party over nothing

Sometimes you can see leadership written all through some people. It colours all of their actions, their interactions, and their fundamental reactions. Leadership is something you either have, or you don’t. It isn’t about what you know, it’s about who you are. It isn’t how you do things, it’s about how others react to those […]
