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.
The UK Could Face Power Cuts.
I remember as a kid in the 1970s experiencing blackouts. The electricity would suddenly go off and people would reach for their candles. At first, it was annoying but people stoically got used to it and carried on. A dispute was at the heart of the power cuts between the government and energy workers. Eventually, the dispute was settled and the lights came back on without interruption. The dispute brought down the Conservative administration of Edward/Ted Heath. A general election was called and Labour-led by Harold Wilson came to power.
Dr. Who: Too Woke?
I remember as a kid and growing up viewing Dr. Who as a must-watch Saturday night event. The Doctor from the planet Gallifrey would battle various threats. Daleks, Cybermen, Sea-Devils, etc, the programme was pure escapism, adventure, and a little scary.
Boris: To Reshuffle Cabinet.
On the back of a severe drubbing in last Thursday's local elections, Boris is expected to reshuffle his cabinet. It is rumoured that Wishy-Washy Rishi Sunak could be replaced as Chancellor by Foreign Secretary Liz Truss. Truss and Sunak are sworn rivals to replace Boris at some point. If this is the case, this will be Truss' star ascending while Sunak's star will be dimming.
Labour Make Gains At Expense of Conservatives.
Labour made gains in the local elections last night. In Barnet, Wandsworth, and Westminster Labour took seats from the Conservatives. Wandsworth was hailed by Labour sources as a monumental loss for the Conservatives. Speaking in Barnet, Sir Keir trumpeted that Labour had "turned a massive corner".
Johnson To Address Ukrainian Parliament.
The resistance and defiance that Ukraine has shown to the Russian invasion have been nothing short of a miracle. The country has paid a terrible price for standing up to Vladimir Putin. Scores of its armed services have been killed and badly injured. The civilian population has paid a heavy price in death and injuries also. Cities and towns have been pummeled to dust by Russian missile strikes, bombing, and shelling. Vast amounts of the Ukrainian population have fled the country. Others remain in hiding or try to carry on with their lives.
Kim Jong Un: Nukes For Peace?
Kim Jong Un gave a speech at a parade in Pyongyang. The parade was to honour the founding of the North Korean Army 90 years ago. The speech spoke about bolstering North Korea's nuclear force and this will be achieved at "maximum speed".
Russia Is Failing While Ukraine Is Rising.
Antony Blinken visited Vlodimir Zelensky to announce US diplomats would return to Kyiv. Mr. Blinken at the Polish border later announced that Russia's war aims were failing. Its economy was tanking because of harsh sanctions and people were leaving Russia en masse. Also, a new US Ambassador would be presented to the world shortly. Mr. Blinken added that "Ukraine will be around a lot longer than Putin's Russia"
Boris' Troubled Premiership.
Boris must wish he had taken Indian citizenship as he flew back into the UK. Partygate will not leave the Prime Minister alone as MPs voted through a motion to investigate Boris. Labour instituted this motion to investigate the Prime Minister's antics. Also, the Metropolitan Police have issued more fines to 10 Downing Street over illegal lockdown parties. Boris and his troubled Chancellor Rishi Sunak could be the recipiants of these fines. Other cabinet members will also be receiving fines and Downing Street staff.
Archbishop Says Priti Patel's Policy of Sending Migrants To Rwanda Is Ungodly.
Home Secretary Priti Patel has been trying to get the number of migrants into the UK down. Patel's opponents accuse of her talking tough but little else. Others accuse of her being on the far-right of the Conservative party.
