Leapy Lee LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT

It’s an airborne M25 out there

I’ve never been particularly fond of flying. I truly do envy a number of friends and colleagues who inform me, often with a barely discernible smirk, that their holiday begins ‘when they board the plane.’ Mine only even becomes a possibility when the reverse thrust kicks in on landing! At…

My column rants are restricted

One of my problems of late, stems from the fact that because PC and immigrant issues are now being discussed far more openly, it tends to somewhat restrict my column rants. Well, don’t worry, rest assured the ol’ boy will still manage to drag something up! I am of course…

US election was a‘no-brainer’

I DON’T think I need to say how relieved I was to see Trump elected last week. What puzzles me is why, with my favouring of Trump and also the ‘Brexit’ vote, I received a virtual Tsunami of ‘scoff’ mail, (some most unpleasant) but letters of support were extremely thin…

Yesteryear comedies still make us laugh

AS someone who earns most of his living after dark, daytime television is often a major contributor to my psyche of amusement and entertainment. In a stroke of, probably financially instigated genius, the BBC has recently decided to present re-runs of some classic comedies of yesteryear and what a treat…

When a girl of 14 changes gender

‘Loopy Loo’! If I had a Euro for all the times I’ve been called that over the years, the only problem I would have in life would be my golf handicap! Last week another coin was added to the coffers by the lady who suggested that my idea of regulated…

I didn’t desert England, it deserted me

DESPITE my 40 or so years living as an expatriate it was always my intention to one day return to England and see my days out in the country I have always loved and admired, perhaps to one day show my children the country of their heritage and take them…

Purge the Sturge – you know it makes sense

Call me completely out of touch and naive, but can any one of my Scottish friends tell me that Nicola Sturgeon and her party retain anything more than their own blind ambitions and dislike of the English in their political aspersions and endeavours? They are now (in barely disguised panic…

Stop degrees of tolerance

THE reason the police and authorities show more lenience and are less likely to take action against ethnic demonstrators is quite simple; they are frightened of them. Or more specifically afraid of the wrath they could incur should they ‘upset’ them too much. Have no doubt that the police are…

Build camps across Europe

SO, certain charities are refusing to bring aid to the infamous Calais ‘Jungle Camp.’ Apparently after visiting and witnessing unwanted clothing and foodstuffs being dumped and burnt, the Human Relief Foundation has decided to suspend its charitable expeditions into these areas. Another reason given is that, despite the bias of…

Holier-than-thou leaders

PERSONALLY, I think we should butt out of Syria altogether. Every time we take the so called moral high ground, we finish up causing even more misery death and carnage. We have to stop judging people from other countries, particularly the Middle East, by our own lifestyle. Our democracies and…

Extremists make life hell

BY now it must be painfully obvious, even to the ‘luvvies,’ that the extremists of Daesh are hellbent on making life on our beautiful planet a living hell. Every aspect of their existence is firmly geared toward turning the miracle of our glorious human manifestation into one that is evil,…

‘No go’ areas really exist

WE really do have to drag our heads out of the sand and begin to admit some of the realities of life. Living in denial is utterly counterproductive. The recent ‘advice’ given to the Chinese tourist by their airline company is a case in point. To my mind their recommendation…

Blight of bigoted and bitter

IT’S the racist accusers who are actually the true racists. It’s the bigoted and bitter individuals that spread hatred and destructive attitudes which blight our previously liberal and receptive societies. This latest furore, about a completely innocuous remark on a TV soap is a case in point. It wasn’t the…

Ban the burkini? I say yes

I AM 100 per cent in agreement that the beach shroud or ‘Burkini’ should be completely banned from public bathing sites. The reason? It offends me. In the countries supported by those who follow these practices, it is not only against the law to even show a glimmer of flesh,…

So, when all else fails...

IT’S high time we began using the superstitions and beliefs of the Islamic extremists for our own ends. If we can’t persuade their more fanatical religious leaders to desist from feeding their young and vulnerable followers propaganda from the dark ages, we need to introduce a great deal more of…

Media profanity, just get used to it!

THIS week I found myself in ‘heavy discussion’ with my Irish nearest and dearests. One of them asked if I liked the Mrs. Brown’s Boys TV comedy series. To their apparent surprise, I told them I didn’t. “Why not?” they enquired, somewhat incredulously. “He’s a wonderful comedian and is so…

Has never fooled me for a moment

THE one thing that gratifies me in all this Labour fiasco of late is the fact that it has finally brought to the surface what a sorry bunch of sad losers most of them actually are. It does frankly amaze me how anyone can possibly even consider voting for any…

It's a matter of opinion...and a right to express it

HEAVEN only knows I am certainly by no means perfect. However one thing you can be perfectly certain of is that I am not a downright liar. I also take severe umbrage at being inferred as one. Over my twenty five or so years as a columnist, I have received…

I don't even know where to begin

BIT hard to work out where to start this week. Probably finding myself in a similar position as our new prime minister! I did consider the speed Theresa May met up with Nicola Sturgeon was almost bordering on the obscene. The statement issued afterwards was even more so. Do the…
