  • Olly Robbins, Mr Brexit – off to a shaky start

    1 Comment
          The voices of doom, gloom and apocalypse are being sounded in the media over the uncertain start to the Brexit negotiations with Barnier looking forbidding and Davis/Fox spouting their usual clap-happy platitudes. But it’s early days with much game-playing going on. No doubt it’ll come down to the wire after screaming fits, tantrums and flouncing exits along the way from both sides. The UK Mr Brexit spearheading the UK 90-strong negotiating team and Theresa May’s principal Europe adviser is civil servant Olly Robbins, 20 April 1975. He has been keen to play down ‘the political noise in Westminster’ and suggests only he and the prime minister should be listened to, thereby rather cutting David Davis out of …Keep reading »
  • Mitch McConnell – bruising defeat

    No Comments
      The failure to pass Trumpcare is being seen as a major humiliation for Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader. And it’s not at all clear where it goes from here, since the USA has found that they actually like health care being protected. McConnell, 20 February 1942, does have the upcoming Lunar eclipse conjunct his Mercury (opposition Pluto), which certainly fits with scattered arguments, barriers to agreements, high stress levels and the need for a serious re-think. The Leo Solar Eclipse is also square his Uranus which will also have thrown him off track. The rest of this year looks panicked, irritated and disappointing. It’ll be 2018 before he picks up a more confident tr Pluto square his Sun/Jupiter …Keep reading »
  • BBC – unequal opportunity employer

    6 Comments
      Only one woman makes the top ten in fees paid to BBC actors, presenters, journalists and panellists, which has caused a raft of unwelcome headlines about gender imbalance for the corporation. The BBC were forced unwillingly to list the top salaries as part of their new 11-year royal charter, though it excludes those who are set up as independent production companies. The BBC chart does have tr Saturn wafting back and forth over the Virgo Moon this year and conjunct the Solar Arc Moon this December; with the Moon ruling the 2nd house of finances. So the lunar element is being firmly suppressed on the material level. And the Moon anyway isn’t well-integrated, only having one aspect of note – …Keep reading »
  • Trump and Bannon – a pact with the devil

    1 Comment
          “The most dangerous political operative in America” is how the author of the recently published book The Devil’s Bargain describes Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist. “Trump wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Bannon”. “As far as political reality goes, it’s Bannon’s movie we’re now in.” Bannon’s philosophy is apocalyptic, a world dominated by a fight between good and evil. He doesn’t see the world in terms of partisan politics as much as a cage-match clash of civilizations. Fuelled by anger, he talks in shock and awe terms, and constantly uses martial analogies. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power,” he told the Hollywood Reporter last year. Ever intent on destroying ‘the establishment’ whether in Hollywood where he failed to …Keep reading »
  • Prince Andrew’s tribe – high hopes and disappointment

    8 Comments
            Is the gaffe-prone Sarah Ferguson about to be embraced once again by the Royal Family? It certainly appears to be Prince Andrew’s wish since she has represented him on several occasions in recent times and has therefore appeared in the Court Circular, been to Ascot, been to Balmoral etc. He’s no doubt leaning on his position as the Queen’s favourite, with Prince Philip (not a Fergie fan) retreating from public appearances; and attempting to guarantee his daughters’ inclusion once the Queen disappears off the scene. However that doesn’t seem to be Prince Charles’ idea since he wants a slimmed-down Monarchy, restricted to his close family; and his famously frosty relationship with his brother is, if anything, …Keep reading »
  • John McCain – Senate stalwart battling on

    2 Comments
    John McCain, Arizona senator and chairman of the Armed Services Committee is recovering after surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. There are concerns his recovery may take longer than expected. He has a history of malignant melanomas, the most recent in a location near the eye which had been causing him problems. He was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for five and a half years, badly injured and severely tortured. He has a successful (especially in later life) Jupiter in his 10th which is square his Virgo Sun and trine Mars in Leo, so despite being pushed past his breaking point by the Vietcong, he’ll always have harboured a nugget of optimism inside about the future. …Keep reading »
  • R Kelly – grim childhood fuels success & problems

    No Comments
      R Kelly, the most successful R&B singer of the past 25 years has added another scandal (hotly denied) to his resume, after several parents allegedly reported they hadn’t seen their daughters in months and that he was holding them in an “abusive cult”. A Buzz Feed report accuses the singer of brainwashing women, who got closer to him in an effort to boost their musical careers. That included rules about what they could eat and wear, when to bath and sleep and how to engage in sexual encounters recorded by him. In 2008, he was acquitted of 14 charges of making child pornography after a videotape emerged allegedly showing him having sex with a 14-year-old girl. Born 8 January 1967 in Chicago, …Keep reading »
