To slightly misquote the letter of Tom Paine‘s comment but to capture its essence, he once said that blogposts about blogging are among his least favourite and I’d agree … until a blogger comes along who is worth speaking of. Most posts are about events, ideas and behaviours but few go into the person disseminating them, unless that person is in the public sphere.  Worse is a blogger who puts a…

War looms for ‘Fifth Column’!

War looms for ‘Fifth Column’!

Its just an easy drive from Hereford to Rotherham, then fast across to Dewsbury, Bradford, and the rest of the infected areas; then back down the M1 to Luton, London and Tower Hamlets: so it should be completed in about, oh; four-odd weeks! They’ll probably have to arrange a further drop for ammunition, but the R.A.F. can scrape up a C130 at short notice, seeing as the C-17’s are busy…

…not to demand everyone else do so: Event manager Lucy Dixon is a single parent who has worked full-time since her son was five-months old. George is currently in childcare from 8am to 5.30pm. This means, Dixon points out, that a normal school day is going to be on the short side for him – and she’s dreading the prospect of several weeks of “settling-in” with shorter hours when he…

How much do pundits know?

James Forsyth at the Spectator writes: Cameron’s defenders would argue that, when people call him lucky, what they actually mean is that he seizes his opportunities. But so far he has shown a marked reluctance to take advantage of Europe’s troubles to secure a better deal for Britain. Politicians are fond of quoting the words of Barack Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel: ‘You never let a serious crisis…

What are the chances that Benghazi Hillary will get into power? Hillary’s classified document abuse far worse than what got John Deutch fired as CIA head and General Petraeus to enter a plea deal How can she not be charged for her crimes?  How can an open criminal run for office or one about whom there is probable cause?

Penny Anderson shows why she’s a ‘starving’ writer: People in Britain are battling each other for cut-price food. What, regularly? Come off it! This is just one filmed incident. I know it goes against the grain, but let’s not have the hyperbole laid on too thick right from the start… It might come as a shock to anyone who imagines that writers fly to work in their own helicopter with…

…also not banned: scratching your arse during a Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph and public urination in the flowerbed at the Queen’s Garden Party.

The true sound of silence

The true sound of silence

I offer, for your contemplation, a post which I wrote, some five years ago, on mine own small site:- Far from the madding crowd’s ignoble strife, Their sober wishes never learn’d to stray; Along the cool sequester’d vale of life They kept the noiseless tenour of their way.

Have we ever seen such a pathetic, petulant ignoramus? On one level, so gutless: Mr Cameron said ISIS posed an existential threat to the British way of life, but vowed: ‘We will not cower in the face of terrorism.’ Then: He criticised BBC presenter John Humphrys for referring to the group as Islamic State.
