Leapy Lee LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT

Give us all a well-deserved break

I AM not, never have been, and hopefully never will be, a racist. I challenge one reader to show me a single example of any writing or column comment to disprove this statement. Well, I’ll save you the trouble. You won’t find one. Sometimes I feel like Enoch Powell. David…

The gloves will be truly discarded

I THINK Gibraltar is about to become a huge and potentially highly dangerous issue between Spain and the UK. Notwithstanding the disputes of its sovereignty, which date back to the 1700’s and beyond, ‘Gib’ has however managed to maintain a somewhat ‘rocky’ alliance with the Spanish, purely because we were…

Let me just spell it out for you!

IS it not unbelievable, that, in the light of the recent Westminster terrorist atrocity, the authorities issue a statement informing us that ‘the real reasons for this attack may never be known’!? Despite all the evidence and facts surrounding this horrendous occurrence, our limp-wristed leaders are still in denial as…

A strong border would be needed

AS I’ve mentioned in the past, writing a weekly column dealing mainly in current affairs, can often be extremely difficult. If I could have published this piece the day after Sturgeon’s announcement of a further referendum, I would have had a positive tsunami of ‘column fodder’ to call upon. Now…

Keep that mail coming always

ONE of the bonuses I glean from writing this column is the mail I receive. The reason many go unpublished is because a large number have attachments, or are a tad too long. I do of course read them all. The feedback I gain is invaluable and I thank all…

Just who gives them the right?

IF you even bothered to watch it, I've no doubt you thoroughly enjoyed the cock-up at the Oscars ceremony last week. As usual the 'stars', who often find it impossible to connect two words without a script, were utterly tongue-tied at the mix up, producing more waffles than Dick's fast…

A bitter and twisted approach

JUST whose side are the British media actually on? It does seem that almost anything that may be commendable, or praiseworthy concerning the UK, is immediately put down by cynical news people; who really do appear to only be interested in pouring rain on any British parade that waves a…

Blair is an eloquent con artist

COULD anyone believe the gall of Tony Blair in last week's rambling tirade against Brexit? This arrogant war criminal, personally responsible for the destabilizing of the Middle East and the deaths of thousands, is a political conman who, through added guile and misinformation, not only opened the doors to millions…

Are the do-gooders out there listening?

BEFORE the Trump immigrant ban was lifted, the media regaled us with harrowing airport pictures of families and individuals, devastated and often reduced to tears by the effect the new law was having on both them and their families. What they couldn’t show of course, was the scowling confusion on…

I CERTAINLY didn’t expect my gloomy forecast regarding the Gibraltar…

It’s a big and nasty world out there folks

CAN'T quite believe I’m doing Trump again this week but the man is such wonderful column fodder, I find him almost impossible to resist. At least the court order, reversing his blanket ban on travellers from seven Muslim countries proved one thing. That no man, even the president of the…

Donald Trump: Grievances are coming to a head

WELL, whatever your views on ‘PDT’ you must admit that his actions certainly speak louder than his already robust dialogue. Personally I find this trait enormously refreshing. Over decades of newly elected political leaders literally taking years (if ever) to implement the promises and policies they have been elected on,…

Donald Trump: Most exciting thing to happen

HOPEFULLY the cry of ‘Donald Duck’ won’t be heard issuing from the lips of the new president’s bodyguards for a while. Although many of the dissenters would love to see the red spot appear between Mr Trump’s eyes, I for one am delighted to see this largely unknown entity emerge…

Stick to your lives of fantasy

I NEVER chose to be a nonconformist. Sitting here at 77 years of age (already not conforming to three score and 10!) it is now painfully obvious that choosing to remain within our society as an ‘antisocial,’ was, at the very least, going to be difficult and certainly not make…

The danger of even more racism

I’M sure we were all thoroughly sickened by the attack on a defenceless patient by the four black care workers in America this week. These animals unleashed an assault on this young, mentally impaired white man, that truly defies the imagination. To add insult to his horrific ordeal, this evil…

The world is well rid of this man

How typical of that petulant pillock Obama to make Trump’s accession to the White House as difficult as possible. Why didn’t he just leave the decisions as to what action to take against Russia to the new administration? Why? Because he wants to throw that final rattle out of the…

Long lives of utter bone idleness

AT long last we will start a New Year with business people at the helm of our most powerful ally. Let’s hope this trend spreads to more of our leading nations. Politicians simply can’t hack it. Most of them are so out of touch with the real world, they don’t…

Celebrate Christmas while you still can

JUST when you thought you’d heard it all, another gem pops up. Last week some jobsworth or other, decreed that we should no longer address our school children as ‘girls and boys!’ Apparently, they inform us, labelling youngsters in this fashion can be ‘upsetting to children who may have transgender…

Boris Johnson was right about Saudi

BORIS JOHNSON was 100 per cent correct with his ‘proxy wars’ remarks regarding Saudi Arabia. It is merely another example of the deed this nation does best of all – delegate. Having lived among them for some eight years I can categorically state that, in my opinion, they are the…

Battling bureaucracy wears you out

To save on space I have omitted the number of time wasting office visits that had to be endured regarding the subject of this week’s column. Those of you who have had to deal with Spanish ‘red tape’ will know exactly what I mean! All who are anticipating a retirement…
