I am a freelance writer currently writing for Blasting News and HubPages. I mainly write about politics. But have and will cover all subjects when the need arises.
George Galloway: "I Despise Sunak"!
No one would have thought in a 'month of Sundays' that George Galloway and His Workers Party of Britain would win the Rochdale By-election. Labour's Muslim MP lost the backing of the Labour Party after alleged anti-Semitic statements. So, many pundits have proposed that Mr. Galloway won because of Labour not having a candidate. A local businessman and independent David Tully, came second.
Sir Keir: "Lasting Ceasefire in Gaza".
We have all been horrified by the Hamas attack on Israelis on October 7. Where Hamas killed 1,200 Israelis and took many hostage. We knew Israel being Israel, would hit back. However, many have been and are taken aback by how hard Israel has hit back. Killing 28,000 civilians, taking out churches and mosques, medical facilities, education facilities, etc. Killing it seems, very few Hamas fighters. 300 or so IDF soldiers are dead with countless others injured. Hamas no doubt, has been and will be decimated, however, it remains intact.
Netanyahu: Will He, Won't He?
The IDF stand on the threshold of entering Rafah, the last major city in Gaza. This city is right up against the border with Egypt. Egypt has stationed tanks and armoured personnel carriers on its side of the border. Just in case, Gazans including Hamas leaders and operatives, try to flee into Egypt. Also, just in case, the Israelis pursue their prey across the border.
Trump: Pay or We Will Not Defend You.
Donald Trump is still repeating his mantra that members of The Transatlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) should pay their way. Trump told a meeting in South Carolina that NATO nations should pay 2 % of GDP towards their protection. It sounds a bit like the Mafia asking for protection money or else!
Sunak Was Confronted by an Angry Audience Member.
Rishi Sunak was facing an open question-and-answer forum hosted by Stephen Dixon of GB News. A man stood up in the crowd and said, "My name is John Watt and I'm one of the COVID-19 vaccine injured in this country. I just want you to look me in the eyes to look at the pain, the trauma and the regret I have in my eyes" Mr. Watt continued.
Egypt Puts Tanks on Border.
Egypt has been busy while Israel has been levelling Gaza. Egypt has been building a reinforced wall on the border with Gaza. As Israel is now prepping to attack Rafah (the supposed last bastion of Hamas) Egypt has also put tanks and armoured personnel carriers on the border with Gaza. Rafah is the last major city in Gaza before you enter Egypt. The Egyptians do not want streams of Palestinians entering their territory. Hence their building a wall and putting their military equipment on the border. Egypt does not want Hamas operatives seeking refuge in its country. It also wants Gazans to stay in Gaza. It does not want Palestinians to be pushed out of their land. If they are then they would be Egypt's responsibility.
Sadiq Khan: Wants More Money to Deal with XL Bullies.
Sadiq Khan has written to Greg Hands asking for 4 million Pounds so the Met is funded to deal with XL Bullies. The dog is now banned in the UK and unless your dog is registered, it can be seized and destroyed.
Has Labour Lost The Muslim Vote?
Keir Starmer has said Israel has the right to defend itself. Keir Starmer has a very good relationship with the Jewish community. Mr. Starmer's wife is Jewish and Mr. Starmer attends Friday Night 'Shabat' Dinners. So, Sir Keir will be very pro-Jewish and pro-Israel, so what is wrong with that, one might ask? Well, nothing really, Sir Keir has the right to hold whatever views he wishes!
Iran: Nukes Ahoy!
David Albright former UN Weapons Inspector has warned Joe Biden not to attack Iran directly! Biden as I write this has probably chosen what way he wants to hit back. Hit back for an attack by a group called Kataib Hezbollah. The group is allegedly funded by Iran.
