Selfish or Impeded?

Justice minister Phillip Lee has proclaimed the British too selfish to care for the elderly and argues that people should be looking after elderly parents and grandparents rather than relying on the state, citing the example of Muslims and Hindus as one to follow. (Given that the government usually demands immigrants ‘assimilate’ into British culture, … Continue reading

Spanish Practices

Spain has demonstrated the stupidity and nastiness that characterises the European ruling elite by brutally cracking down on Catalan separatists in scenes reminiscent of third-world dictatorships. Yes, the Catalan independence isn’t constitutional, but that is no reason for violence. The Spanish government could just have ignored the result, just as they might any opinion poll, … Continue reading

Unimpressed

I wasn’t surprised that the AfD did well in the German elections, nor was I that surprised to see ‘anti-fascists’ protesting at their success. Nor can I say I was impressed. Besides the fact that complaining that the democratic process produced the ‘wrong’ result being dangerously close to fascism, once again, the ‘anti-fascists’ demonstrated that … 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

Parliament of Hypocrites

In the imagination of some, The Mother of Parliaments, Westminster, is something marvellous. Yet, consider the recent call by Speaker Bercow to ban America’s President Trump from addressing it. Now, Parliament can, of course, choose who it does or does not wish to address it, but the call to ban Trump is a disgusting example … Continue reading

Banning The Burkini

Plenty of reasons have been proffered for the ban on the so-called burkini in certain French holiday resorts, but not one of them stands up to scrutiny. I’ve never agreed with the intermittent calls to ban the burka and the veil in the UK, but there is a case, however weak, for doing so – … Continue reading

Post-Referendum Racism

Following the EU referendum, there were claims of a sudden surge in racist incidents. Remain campaigners made the inevitable claim that this surge was due to the Leave campaign, as if it had magically caused decent people to transform into racists. Which, of course, is nonsense: there were no more racists the day after the … Continue reading

Brexit!

If you’ve been following my recent posts, you won’t be surprised to learn that I’m delighted that Britain has, narrowly, voted for Brexit. The vote kept me up all night, watching at first with trepidation, then with elation as the Leave total climbed ahead of Remain. The first step towards the reformation of Britain has … Continue reading

Judgement Day

Well, today is the day that Britain goes to the polls and decides whether it wants to remain in the EU or leave, and if the flooding is anything to go by, it seems we’ve gone with Brexit and the apocalypse predicted by David Cameron is already upon us! Of course, the result remains far … Continue reading
