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. 

I desperately want to hear the views of others, and look forward to some scintillating exchanges but please let such exchanges be driven by intellectual views and discussion.  We all have a voice and your opinion matters, let’s hear it…

Genuine Heroism There are times when people’s actions in the face of true adversity make me realise what genuine heroism looks like. There is no greater example of this than Dame Deborah James or the “Bowelbabe” as she has become known. Her courage, selflessness, and...

Politics – A Very Nasty Business

I find it quite nauseous to watch the frenzied scramble of opposition politicians and the worthless breakfast TV press as they salivate at the prospect of Boris Johnson’s self created nightmare. “Why”, I hear many shout in anger, “he is guilty of lying to Parliament...

Harry – From Hero To Zero

All my friends know how important maintaining the UK is to me, and my pride in being British. As a Highland Scot I have written several blogs on my opinion of Nicola Sturgeon and the damage she and her party are doing to Scotland, and to what I have always believed to...

What Price Freedom Day?

I wrote this post yesterday, but didn’t post it for various reasons. However, I am delighted to be proven wrong in regard to my point on the Government and PM not showing courage and true leadership; they have done exactly that and I applaud them for it. My original...

Eurovision Song “Contest”

I have never been shy in coming forward, particularly when it comes to blatant cheating. In truth, I can't think of many things less interesting than Eurovision and I have always believed it to be something that second rate, largely talentless singers compete in....

Surprised? – You Must Be Joking

I can hardly believe the recent furore over the news that David Cameron and other ex-MP’s have been accused of lobbying former colleagues. It’s neither new nor illegal, given the rules are followed and yes, such rules actually exist; in fact they were largely written...
