RYANAIR, Monarch and easyJet are among the worst airlines in the world! This verdict is the result of the latest rankings by AirHelp which graded 87 global airlines on quality, service, ontime performance and claims processing. Hang on! Budget airlines operate on very tight margins and, as such, are able…
WARNING: the following contains strong language right from the start! What the **** … Well, I’d better tone it down a bit as it’s a family newspaper! I thought at first it was a belated April Fool’s joke but no. The BBC interview I just watched is only too true,…
THE recent General Election, with its reports from all over the UK, brought home some memories of old haunts, especially of former, err, homes. So, idly Google-MapsStreet-Viewing, I zoomed in on one home which was sold to a couple with small boys. Oh, look, I moan to myself, they’ve taken…
AT this time of year, air travel’s uppermost in many people’s minds. Not always a pleasant experience what with queuing, flight delays, ‘misunderstandings’ etc. easyJet recently denied claims that, ahead of a flight from Malaga to Bristol, its pilot announced there was a ‘50/50’ chance both its engines would work,…
WHO do you trust? Politicians? Bankers? The police? Trust is now at an all time low - for many, mainly due to those at the top who have let the rest of us down. Indeed, it was once suggested all UK MPs should attend ‘honesty’ classes. And that’s the truth,…
WITH headlines ranging from ‘May The Farce Be With You’ and ‘Theresa Back From The Dead’ to ‘The Maybot Rebooted As Strong And Humble. Stumble For Short, we witnessed a master class in how to lose a general election, snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. Theresa May lost…
NEWS that the next likely governor of California is preparing for battle against Silicon Valley’s job-killing robots shouldn’t come as any surprise. After all, 60,000 workers in a Chinese factory owned by the manufacturer of the iPhone have already been replaced. But what about British jobs potentially lost to robots…
WHAT a boring, unexciting election campaign we had overall! But it’s sad that, initially at least, Theresa May had to resort to personal smears on the opposition leader in an attempt to garner votes. She made a fundamental mistake in attacking Jeremy Corbyn’s integrity. Every attack she made gave him…
IF you could see inside my head, you’d find some profoundly insightful thoughts about the EU’s Brexit negotiation tactics. Before you got there, though, you’d find the following: are Theresa May’s ‘Legs-it’ skirts too short (shorter even than Jeremy Corbyn’s defence pledges) and should she have posed for Vogue (and,…
CONGRATULATIONS! So you’ve been invited to give a speech! This could be as best man, father of the bride or whatever for a wedding (like Pippa Middleton’s recent extravaganza), an anniversary, business event or other special occasion. But public speaking’s a doddle, nothing at all to worry about. Fortunately, there…
NOW is the time when you really start to see them. Tourists, I mean. After all, they’re the easiest to recognise as a species. They’re the pasty-looking white blobs on the beach - unless the sun’s setting when they’re red as lobsters and being given the kiss of life by…
THERESA MAY’S searing attack on unelected Eurocrats for trying to sabotage both the general election and Brexit is unprecedented. She said she wanted to reach a Brexit deal, and for the EU to succeed: “But the events of the last few days have shown that whatever our wishes and however…
DO you possess exceptional interpersonal skills? Are you equally skilled at customer care and PR? Yes? Then, read on! (And no, I’m not offering you a job, but you might find that a certain airline may in the near future.) United Airlines is facing another PR disaster after a potentially…
THERESA MAY has done a u-turn (I wrote about a possible Brexit u-uurn last week), calling a snap election in which she’ll aim to crush Brexit opposition by seizing a big parliamentary majority. So, good on the PM for taking a decision in the best interests of the country and…
WITH the despatch of Article 50, the gauntlets have been thrown down, the opening cards played, the warning shots fired (mainly over Gibraltar). Now there is the lull before the storm as we await the response of the remaining 27 EU member states as they confer over dinner after dinner.…
IT’S not often I’m left speechless, but that’s precisely what happened during a recent appointment with my gynaecologist in London. As soon as all the medical stuff was over, his next words were: “That novel of yours could have been about me!” As I said, I was speechless, having no…
HAVE you got a tattoo, like Angelina Jolie or David Beckham, fashionably in Latin? Do you take the latest health and medical research seriously? Now, bear with me here: I’m writing about fakery, which affects us all one way or another. Firstly, news that over 300 allegations of plagiarism, fabrication…
MICROSOFT founder Bill Gates (with $86 billion) again tops Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people with the number of billionaires increasing by 13 per cent. But bad news for Trump who dropped 220 places and $1 billion, and must now rub along on just $3.5 billion. Bless! Many recoil…
TOGETHER with news that Theresa May’s fired the starting pistol for triggering Article 50 imminently, it was also announced that Parliament will need to pass at least seven controversial bills to prepare Britain for life outside the EU. Each new law will give MPs and peers the opportunity to influence…
NEWS that Theresa May is giving up crisps for Lent - salt and vinegar variety, since you ask – made me wonder what else people are giving up. Is Jeremy Corbyn giving up trying to lead the Labour Party, or is that just the impression he seems to give? And,…
