Brexiteers’ Ludicrous Highpoint

These are trying times and it is easy to give way to unreason, but I really hope that this is the highpoint of the bigots’ ambitions. I have tried very hard to be fair about Brexit voters. Someone I love voted that way, so I really don’t want to come to the conclusion that they […]

Things really are as bad as they seem

  I’m sceptical about a lot of the Trump-bashing in the media: his derangement makes the corrupt, warmongering ‘normal’ establishment look good, as the rehabilitation of big-finance, pro-war Hilary Clinton demonstrates. Moreover, while I loath him and everything he purports to stand for, I feel a certain sympathy for his misguided supporters; the sinking, poorly […]

IOW MP Voted To Legalise Cruelty to Animals

The Independent has published the list of MPs who voted against retaining Article 19 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU, or Brexit withdrawal bill to you and me) and, yes, predictably, Little Lord Seely, the scion of the Island’s landed gentry who returned to his ancestral dump to claim his […]

Vital Campaign to Protect Animals

Protected by European law, animal rights are being sold to the highest bidder by the clique useless, self-serving failures who […]

Censored by Guido Fawkes

Here’s an interesting experience. I have been edited for, I assume, expressing a contrary opinion on the Guido Fawkes website. Guido Fawkes is a ‘libertarian’, nationalist, right-wing blog serving the world view of embittered middle-aged failures, and I wouldn’t normally want it on my search history, but it has been the outlet for whoever has […]

Fools At Play

While this article, by Nick Cohen, nicely lays out the horror of having a belligerent, pasty moron in charge of a nuclear arsenal, it wasn’t as helpful as Bruce Cuming’s summary of why North Korea is as defiant of “international will” as it is. Whenever we are asked to blindly see a people as an enemy […]

Footsore But Hopeful, Despite So Much Horror.

We went to the People’s Assembly March in London on Saturday and had a great time. So many people, so many conversations: it was like an ambulatory night in the world’s friendliest pub without the booze. I have, at last, heard Jeremy Corbyn speak live, and it was a belter, but we also heard Diane […]
