About Me

Some people make things happen, some watch things happen, while others wonder what has happened.”

This blog is a step along my road of trying to make things happen. After moaning and doing nothing about the sad decline of Britain I have decided to become a keyboard warrior. I might not achieve anything but it should help my blood pressure.

If nothing else it will be a funny and cynical examination of the things that are dragging our country to hell in a handcart.

These are in no particular order:

  • The EU
  • The BBC and other organs of leftie cultural hegemony
  • The daft and fatuous theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming
  • Bunny huggers
  • Liberal Demoprats

However, life is too short to be persistently negative. That way lies Peter Hitchens and Simon Heffer. So, there will be a positive side to the blog of those things that still make me proud to be British.

These are:

  • The Queen
  • The armed forces
  • The countryside
  • Roger Scruton
  • Dogs
  • Classic British Aircraft
  • The odd Conservative Minister, stand up IDS, Michael Gove and Owen Paterson

NB neither of these lists is exhaustive, and as they are the products of a bout of insomnia they may well be amended.

On a personal level, I’m married; live on a hill in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, have a husband, 2 dogs and a cat to care for. And I regard Norman Tebbit as a dangerous pinko.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the ride.

  1. Dear Ann,
    Enjoyed your blog a lot. You really should think about joining Ukip. Seems to me a much better fit for you than the LibLabCon lot!

    • She’s probably just interested in working with a party that has an excellent rather than a vanishingly remote prospect of forming a government and actually wielding power. And as a politics academic who understands how the electoral system works, she knows why the Tories remain an infinitely more sensible bet for a right-winger than UKIP.

      If you want to get a better grasp of the insurmountable obstacles lying between UKIP and serious influence in the House of Commons, ask Mr Reckless who just found out how hard it is to win a parliamentary seat even as a sitting UKIP MP and Mr Farage who, for all his obvious advantages as the big-name candidate, has yet again failed to pick up a seat at Westminster.

      UKIP is for unrealistic people who like ranting over a gin and tonic in the 19th hole. The Conservatives are for pragmatists who are looking to change things.
