Well that is not exactly how it was meant to work out…

A week on and the current political situation is looking neither strong nor stable.

Prime Minister (for now…) Theresa May took a massive gamble by calling a snap General Election and it seems to have failed spectacularly. Her majority has gone, her authority has been severely diminished.

Hello! 

To those of you who have already pledged to get your copy of "Not Buying It", and those who are about to pledge (yes, that's you isn't it?!) thank you very much. The book is taking shape thanks to your support.
