Good News Unnoticed

“Imagine if 40,000 Muslims gathered together in the south of England to swear a pledge of allegiance to Isis,” prompts Rina Wolfson in an article in the Jewish Chronicle (4th August, 2017): a media storm would ensue. But, 40,000 Muslims denouncing violence and raising the Union Flag? Not a glimmer, except for this sole reporter, … Continue reading

What’s (Who’s) in a Role?

Over on the Atlantean Publishing blog, I explained why I was disappointed that the next Doctor would be a woman as regards the character being a great role-model for boys. Former Doctor, Peter Davison, expressed a similar view, prompting another former Doctor, Colin Baker, to suggest that it was a possible to just be a … Continue reading

A new era of anti-semitism

Anti-Semitism is on the rise in the UK and across Europe. Hatred in general ha become more common (witness how Corbyn’s ‘kinder, gentler politics’ has consisted of his supporters abusing not only Tories, especially women and those from minorities, but also female and Jewish Labour MPs, while in Europe anti-Islamic attitudes have become part of … Continue reading

Hope versus Hate

It is reassuring to see the so-called ‘Day of Rage’ largely fizzled out, just a small number of hate-filled losers being angry at everyone. Following the Grenfell fire, it was a joy to behold everyone coming together to help those who had been left homeless – everyone: rich and poor, old and young, black and … Continue reading

A Camden Cock-up

It is disgusting to see how Camden Council has mishandled the fire threat to residents of its high-rise blocks. People learnt of the evacuation via the television news before being told to leave in the middle of the night – in one case, only learning the next morning! Those who have chosen to stay are … Continue reading

Antisemitism, a-okay?

The United Kingdom went to the polls today and, if the exit polls are accurate, it looks as if it may have backfired for Theresa May and that Labour will make gains. Whether it will result in a hung parliament or even a Corbyn government is unclear, but the fact that Labour is making gains … Continue reading

Treason!

It says so much about the current parlous state of political discourse that the response to Jeremy Corbyn pointing out that British policies at home and abroad have contributed to the current terrorist threat wasn’t reasoned debate by wild accusations of treason, which have only served to make him seem more credible, given that a … Continue reading

Election Ho!

“You’re not going to vote Labour, are you?” I’ve been asked: The Labour manifesto has much that is in accord with what I’d like to see. Strip away Jeremy Corbyn and his coterie of terrorist-loving anti-Semitic incompetents, who’re strangely tolerant of racism in their midst, and the answer would be “yes.” But, as things stands, … Continue reading

Election Fever?

So, we’re having a general election. Has Theresa May guaranteed her premiership or made a terrible mistake? I can see why she did it: An election will silence those critics who claim she has no mandate, will avoid her having to fight an election midway through the ‘Brexit’ negotiations, preempts any downturn in the economy, … Continue reading

Not Really Women

Broadcaster Jenni Murray recently caused controversy by stating that transwomen aren’t ‘real women’. Which, in a genetic sense, is true – that is their tragedy. But, what is the measure of a ‘real’ woman? Her defenders have, for example, asked whether a transwoman will experience the menopause, about which Jenni Murray has written. But, what … Continue reading
