Via Sackers, this: Forget “Peak Oil” and “Peak Credit” … Are We On the Downslope of “Peak Intelligence”? He makes the classic error, of course, in not considering the factor of intent in all this.  He’s not wrong, of course but he just hasn’t filtered it through the prism of intent. There are detailed arguments in every sphere of life, there are the GCSE results, there’s everyday anecdotal evidence but…

Well, the system ain’t finished with you, Mr King… In the video, Mr King told how they had wanted to leave the hospital because the NHS could not fund the proton beam treatment that they wanted for their son. ‘We couldn’t take it any more – not knowing and not being able to question anything in fear that they say, “Sorry Mr and Mrs King, emergency protection order, you’re no…

TTIP and the wrong focus

This was interesting to find today, datelined August 29th: A new survey, conducted by YouGov on behalf of 38 Degrees, found that a further 39% think the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) “would be bad for the UK”, with just 13% saying it would have a positive effect. Today is the 31st and I only just completed mine, i.e. it only just arrived, so why bother sending it…

The Samaritans Can Go Get Stuffed!

The Samaritans have told tweeters to “think carefully” about what they type when their transport is delayed by suspected suicides. Because, apparently, the thing to do when you are delayed on the rail network because some selfish bastard has thrown himself (or, rarely, herself) in front of your train is to utter only sympathetic noises. Friends and loved ones tweeted emotional messages following the death of 21-year-old Abdu Hemmaida, of…

It’s almost game over in the Ukraine

August 29, 2014 2 Comments
By

What is coming through loud and clear from Russia is that Ukrainians are seen, within Russia, as brothers and sisters. My mate’s view over there is not unlike this Bloomberg writer’s: http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-08-28/putin-has-changed-the-game-in-ukraine A second front has been opened against the Ukrainian army in the rebellious Donetsk region. The Ukrainians were forced to give up the town of Novoazovsk on the Sea of Azov, not far from the strategic port of…

ALS icebucket – where does your money go?

Thought this interesting. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the ALS Association is sweeping the nation, and going viral in social media. However, do you know what you are supporting if you contribute funds to the ALS Association? Where Does the Money Contributed to the ALS Association Go? So where does the money donated to the ALS Association actually go? You may be surprised to find out that the Association itself claims that only 27% of…

A child’s prayer to end the evening

Dear God Please bless Mummy and Daddy, please look after my Aunty Em, please help all the good boys and girls of Rotherham and keep away all the bad monsters, like trolls, the one-eyed purple people eater [shudders], the long legged scissor man, Asian grooming gangs and all Lefties [convulsive shudders] who let it happen. Please make sure, God, that no Lefties are ever in charge of me. And make…

Why Not ‘Wear Bambi’..?

…after all, we’re eating him, aren’t we? It’s the dappled brown fur many of us first laid eyes on watching Disney’s Bambi. But now the same soft hide has been turned into a luxury fashion accessory – to the horror of animal rights campaigners. *rolls eyes* Marketed as ‘for the individualist’, a collection of deer fur clutch bags and iPad cases has been designed by Rosemary Hobrough – whose husband…

Sutton’s theory of elite action

August 26, 2014 3 Comments

In the comments thread at Broad Oak on the post on Lawlessness and the militarization of police, Sackers draws our attention to, and Wolfie subsequently does too: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/08/suttons-theory-elite-action.html In a nutshell, on Antony Sutton: Beginning with his analysis of Western involvement in the creation and support of the Soviet Union, he minced no words in accusing the most powerful families, bankers, and corporations of assisting Communism, Nazism, Socialism, and their own…

We don’t normally do stat porn here but just had a quick look at hits that individual posts got and guess who takes the prize? http://www.4liberty.org.uk/2014/07/15/women-bishops-wont-increase-cofe-attendance/ Closely followed by Julia, Quiet Man and me. Of course, this does not include RSS reads – it’s those who clicked in – that was 1579 for Churchmouse. Who’d have thought it would be that issue?
