The Yeomans Blog

As a storyteller, “blogging” is right up my street.  I started The Yeoman’s blog several years ago with the overriding caveat that I just wanted people to share their views openly, constructively, and positively.  Nobody is ever right all the time and everybody has the right to hold a view; my aim is to pick up on the things that really matter to our society, and to try and help to get to the best possible solution.  People will often disagree and that’s a good, healthy thing in any democracy, but I draw the line at unnecessary rudeness, foul language, or bullying of any kind; if it occurs I will have no hesitation in blocking the guilty party for life.

Energy Crisis – Is It A Crisis?

I am really confused as to why the general public is not being more vocal about the ongoing energy farce.  Whilst the Government is hiding behind the excuse that “Boris has no power to intervene” given his resignation, and neither Liz nor Rishi have the authority, we...

38 Years On – Lest We Forget

The 14th June saw the 38th anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands and whilst I blogged about a dear friend, Lt Jim Barry, who lost his life at the Battle of Goose Green, I didn't go any further at that point as I was getting a little maudlin, which is...

My Worst Nightmare v A Dream

. When the rats were lining up to desert Boris’ sinking ship, I made the point that I was gravely concerned that the Government would rush headlong to appoint a new leader. I didn’t think I was saying anything ground breaking, because the delay the country needs to...

My Favourite Poem

My Favourite Poem I have written lots of poetry over the years which is not something you would normally attribute to an ex-military man. I have always loved words and have used them to screen myself from pain on many an occasion during my life; the first of these...

What Does the PCC Actually Bring?
What Does the PCC Actually Bring?
