Absurd Proposals To Increase Number Of Female MPs In Commons Rejected

I apologise for the lack of posts the past week. I thought I had breast cancer and spent the past week looking at my breasts while whispering ‘You’ve betrayed me’. Luckily, no breast cancer so I have no more excuses. Just like the women who...

BREAKING: Nicola Sturgeon Shelves Referendum Until After Brexit

Today Nicola Sturgeon revealed she will cease campaigning for another referendum until after Brexit. Scotland held its referendum back in 2014 where the Scottish people voted 55% ‘No’ with an 84.6% turnout. Clearly, Sturgeon has not learnt that no means no. The decision to shelve...

Conservatives And DUP Agree On A Deal To Support A Minority Government

The general election results were a shock for everyone, but I think it the worst for May. Not only did she not get more seat, she made Conservatives lose their majority. As a result, she had to turn to the one party that was thirsty...

EPIC FAIL: Humiliating Turn Out For Day Of Rage Protest

Yesterday, the anti-government organisations decided to use the Grenfell Tower fire as an excuse to march in the streets of London with the promise to ‘overthrow the government’. The march was dubbed ‘The Day of Rage’ march, which sounds like a shitty high school band. This...

STREAM: UK Election LIVE Starts @ 4:30 PM ET/9:30 PM UK

Join me and a cast of characters as we cover the election results coming in from the United Kingdom. Theresa May, the prime minister and Conservative Party leader, started the snap election she called heavily favored, but has since seen her lead evaporate in many...

Manchester Suicide Bomber Used Government Handouts to Fund Terror Plot

This one is pretty much takes the cake, I have to say. I’m not even an anti-government assistance person. In fact, I think it’s often vital to provide such benefits. It’s also vital to monitor these programs for abuse. When they’re being used to fund...

British Authorities Were Warned About Manchester Bomber’s Radicalism Years Ago

I don’t know if it’s right to be too hard on the British intelligence community, since on the whole, they’ve been a bit more successful than our own. And you have to keep in mind, Muslims, and presumably extremist ones, makeup a much larger portion...

The Best Thing Jeremy Corbyn Could Do for Labour’s Election Prospects Would Be to Resign ASAP

I’m a political fiend, but admittedly I’m a bit more well read on United States politics than pretty much any other country. I guess that makes sense. This is my home, after all. Still, as many of you know from your time spent reading my...

The UK is More Racist After Brexit…According to Sky News

Is the United Kingdom more racist in the wake of Brexit? Well, if you believe new polling out from Sky News, then the answer is yes. However, if you delve into the numbers, this negativity seems to be the result of bitter Remainers who are...

GPs Are Now Asking Patients to Consider Private Healthcare.

I am a strong advocate for the NHS. Personally, I’ve not used the NHS much. However, my brother and mother used to have severe asthma. Everyone would have their thumb over their phones ready to dial 911 at the first sign of an attack. I’m...

EVERYBODY HATES ANJEM: Social Media Celebrates Choudary’s Terrorism Conviction

Today has gotten off to a great start for me. I awoke to the news that Anjem Choudary had been convicted on terrorism charges in a UK court. To make a long story short, Choudary pledged allegiance to ISIS and that same pledge directly led...

WAR ON FREE SPEECH: UK Police Launch Scorched Earth Offensive Against Internet Trolls

Scotland Yard is pouring £1.7 million into an aggressive anti-cyberbullying initiative that will couple police detectives with an “army of volunteers” who will collaborate to identify and investigate incidents of hate speech on Twitter. This Orwellian scheme has gone public a month after the UK’s...

Thoughts On The Russell Square Stabbings With Londoner Nora Malik

Today I’m joined by the lovely and talented Nora Malik. We talk about the Russell Square stabbings. Nora and I happened to be together in Russell Square just a couple months ago on the way to the British Museum. We also cover Hillary Clinton’s supposed freak-out on stage, Suicide Squad, and the Olympics.

TRR Rundown: ISIS, Russia/DNC, Bernie Sells Out, + More

An old college buddy of mine who goes by the name of Korhal joined me for this show. We had a nice conversation on many current events, including: Bernie selling out, the DNC leaks and the possible Russian connection, ISIS and their brutal murder of...

Our Own Nora Malik Goes Viral With Theresa May Pimp Slap Tweet

I was sitting here earlier chatting with one of the writers on the site. Her name is Nora Malik and she also helps with the audio shows that supplement our writing. She also happens to be my girlfriend of almost one-year now, which is pretty...

MUST SEE TV: British Politics is The Best Thing Going Right Now

I know I just got through talking about the US political scene with our senior political correspondent Seattle4Truth, but the other side of the ocean is where the House of Cards kind of action is going on. Ever since Brexit, we’ve been lead to believe...
