1/6 Good morning friends. Yesterday saw the GOP stumble through another identity crisis day in which Trump is an ever present influence on proceedings. While the nation struggles to overcome a national emergency, Republicans are playing victim, claiming persecution because ..
2/6 ..they chose a couple of nutcase congresswomen. It’s like ‘why are you picking on us because we have 2 lunatic colleagues?’ These people are definitely intellectually challenged. Maybe that’s why we should be feeling sorry for them? The bottom line is that McCarthy has shown
3/6..zero leadership and has now effectively forced all Congressional Republicans to have to go on record to support QAnon. How totally bizarre that? He is having to get Dems to clean up his mess. It’s going to be humiliating and I might suggest, the end to his ambition to be ..
4/6 ..speaker. MTG is unrepentant and is relying on Trump’s advocacy to protect her. History tells us that will likely end in tears. Liz Chaney seems to have survived a political assassination for now, but it’s clear that the party is loosing support from thousands of traditional
5/6 ..supporters. This will only force them further to the right to tap into money from maniacs. I can’t see it ending well. Meantime Joe takes steady steps forwards taking it all in his stride as the GOP try to paint him an autocrat. No tweet storms, no self congratulatory..
6/6 ..statements, just steady as she goes. Unflappable and focused on the job in hand. Jen Psaki found herself under fire for her humorous response at Tuesday’s briefing re Space-force, but dealt with it with aplomb, which made me giggle. I’m feeling comfortable where we are.

1/7 Good morning. As we move to the close of another week, I reflect on how broken opposition politics is in America. I never in my wildest dreams, ever thought I would see a congressional minority leader, defend a member who had threatened the lives of lawmakers and spread
2/7 ..hatred and bile that has caused so much pain and heartache to families who have lost children and loved ones to senseless acts of violence. It is beyond any sense of decency and integrity, that anyone, let alone the leader of the Republican congressional caucus, could even
3/7 ..contemplate such an act of disrespect. Republicans hid behind the argument, that the vote tabled by Dems to remove her from her committee assignments, would set a dangerous precedent. This is frankly preposterous and an insult to common decency. I offer my respect to the 11

1/3 I know people are wondering why no video content recently? I have been plagued by a series of technical issues that have hampered my ability to do what I do and love doing. It’s felt like having my creativity held hostage, being unable to share my thoughts visually.
2/3 Whilst I still have some issues, I have managed to get creative and repurpose stuff to allow me to work. This work will begin at the crack of dawn tomorrow and you will be seeing a few new clips over the next 72 hours. Thank you for your patience and love. Your support keeps
3/3 ..me sane at what is a difficult time for me. Special thanks to those who have started reading my blog, it helps me pour out how I feel and guides my thoughts on what become my video clips. I believe together we can Democratise political content.

1/7 Good morning all. These are indeed strange times. Almost 450,000 dead Americans, filings for unemployment rising, economy stalled, parents unable to put food on the table for their kids. Education paralysed, small businesses disappearing and NOT ONE Republican voted to move .
2/7 ..forward with the American Rescue Plan, despite overwhelming support for it from the American people. I think that’s called dereliction of duty. When political dogma trumps the well-being of a nation, there is a cancer at the heart of opposition politics. If there is one ..
3/7 ..thing we’ve learned since November, good grace, patriotism, honesty and decency no longer exists in the Republican Party and where it does, everything possible is being done to eradicate it. Hard right fringe ideology is the new normal and the welfare of the American people

1/6 Yesterday for me was Jen Psaki day. I always think to myself, that must be an awesome job being Press Secretary to POTUS, but when you drill down, to do it properly requires sort of communication super powers. When watching the previous occupant of the job, one got the ..
2/6 ..impression that her job was to hide the truth and shield the president. With Jen, it’s a finely crafted delivery of facts, no fear of cutting off anything at the knees, if it’s straying into nonsense territory, but a message marinated in truth and integrity. Her style is ..
3/6 ..effortless (hiding how truly challenging it is to balance the administration’s messaging imperatives). Her friendly, sometimes jovial approach to interacting with the press, hides her absolute focus on the message. Her shutdowns are often delivered with a smile and the ..

1/6 Good morning friends. So begins another week. 10 Republicans wrote a letter to the president to say cut your package by 65% and you will get bipartisan support. Hang on a moment while I stop laughing. Is this the same Republican Party that used budget reconciliation to ..
2/6 ..enrich their big business friends that are now allegedly their enemy along with big tech and ‘cancel culture’? So the thanks they got for their giant tax breaks was for the recipients to now be against them? Hmmm, something’s not quite right methinks. The reality ..
3/6 ..is that Trump tapped into small donations from gullible racists and nationalists. It has proved a rich vein of campaign finance and is now perceived as the future as large donors walk away. We are hearing much about thousands of Republicans walking away from the Party, ..

1/6 Good morning brothers and resister sisters. Weekends give us chance to reflect on the week past and for me, it’s been revealing. A strange dividing line has been drawn that sees the official opposition party settling down to be a party of maniac election truth deniers.
2/6 I read a piece saying that Dems had to be careful not to try and paint all Republicans in the same way Republicans paint Dems as radical left Marxists. The harsh reality is, that with 147 members voting against the certification of the results of a free and fair election. The
3/6 ..active support by some of those members for insurrection and the attempted purging from its ranks of ‘moderate’ Republicans. The refusal to condemn QAnon elected representatives and Republicans, without any help from Dems, paint themselves as a lunatic hard right cult.
