What is it with the incompetence of this government? Not happy with taking on an absolute shitshow fro Truss and Johnson, Sunak is busy manufacturing his own quagmire. Braverman reappointment will need to be rescinded if he is to retain any integrity. Many reports refer to her lack of ability.

The world looks on aghast and amazed at the stupidity of snubbing COP27. I posted yesterday about the stupidity of this. Britain has a lot to be proud of in the growth of green energy, but could do more. But snubbing the opportunity to network with world leaders shows a surprising lack of political awareness from Sunak. As does the refusal to allow King Charles to attend and speak? OK Charlie might have spoken out of turn, but it would have had little negative impact (apart from the right wing regime’s?). Are we heading for a period of even greater political isolation?

Pictures of raw sewage being pumped into the sea in Cornwall after a period of rain that would not be considered unusual or extreme are typical of the chaos overseen by this Government over the last 12 years. At least Marie Antoinette supposedly said “let them eat cake” – this governments attitude is to let us swim in shit! The Minister wheeled out to defend the indefensible today basically blamed the public for having downpipes going into the sewage system


As I have stated – Sunak has made a bad decision in not attending COP27 in Egypt. Not only for environmental reasons, but the networking opportunities to meet with many other world leaders. Heals confirmed the Trussfuck’s decision to stop King Charles going and making a speech. Is it weigh anchor time and move the UK into isolation in the Atlantic?



  • 350g Plain flour 
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger 
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda 
  • 100g Butter 
  • 175g Dark muscovado sugar 
  • 1 Egg

  1. Mix together the flour, ginger, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the sugar, egg and golden syrup and mix with a spoon until it forms a dough.
  3. Tip the dough onto a clean, lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes until it is smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 180°c / 350°f / Gas Mark 4.
  5. Roll the dough to 3-5mm thickness on a lightly dusted surface.
  6. Cut out the cookies using a cutter and place them on a greased or lined baking tray.
  7. Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for approximately 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Transfer the biscuits onto a cooling rack to cool.
  9. Decorate with currents, icing or sweets if required. Store in jars to keep fresh.


Profits up 24% to $20 billion for the quarter whilst spending $2.7bn on new oil and gas projects.

Sunak government stops King Charles3 from going to the COP summit in Cairo. Sunak himself says he is too busy whilst demoting climate change ministers from his Cabinet. I am reminded of John McEnroe’s outburst at Wimbledon -“YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS”.

Oil companies have raked in nearly $150 billion this year so far. This is double the profit for the same period last year. Also today the UN has reported that climate change is now irreversible, and that the 1.5C target will not be hit. It is late October and the temperatures are above 20C (10C above average). Yes this might be due to natural circumstances, but the trend is obvious to all.


The budget announcement has been delayed – probably correctly for the sums to be made. It is not just the economic calculations that need weighing up. Political decisions have far reaching consequences. Whether he likes it or not some radical decisions will have to be made.


Looks like he is putting the party before the country. What other excuse could there be for Braverman other than fight off the Reform Party and appease theBruges Group and Tufton Street. It also reveals the paucity of talent at his disposal. His speech was totally forgettable, probably by design. Johnsons antics and Truss’s mistakes and being out of her depth; Sunak just wanted to be seen as a safe pair if hands to settle the city. The pound fell slightly again.
