The high stakes move by Labour’s leader to let the MP for Bury South into the Party has raised questions as to whether Labour…

CARTOON: Boris takes a lie detector test

Lying at the dispatch box would normally lead to a resignation. So we wonder whether the prime minister would be willing to take a lie detector test over the Downing Street party fiasco. After all, there was no party… and if there was no rules were broken… but there wasn’t… Or was there? The post…

Boris sees some familar faces at Peppa Pig World

Aside from China, that is, who have just doubled-down on their coal power fire stations – at odds with the united message COP26…

Macron releases his catch

The quest for a four-day working week

It could have been so different. Back in 2019, two leaders on the opposite ends of the political spectrum pitched their vision to their country. Boris Johnson boldly set out his stall: “Get Brexit done”. Jeremy Corbyn promised to empower workers’ rights. The public emphatically chose Johnson. Nearly two years later, could the prime minister…
