Issues from Ferguson and Lee Rigby

This article contains a vid pane in which multiple news broadcasts on Ferguson follow one another and it’s eye opening. There are issues to go into: Why did the National Guard hold back? There’ve been two explanations.  One is by ex-Mayor Giuliani [and he should know] who said there is a school of thought which says ‘cooling off period’.  In practice, there is no cooling off, only a heating-up.  The only…

Where’s the gold?

Interesting question and only alternative sites are commenting on it: Note how gold flows into New York, but has difficulty flowing out of US private banking hands as is the case with the ‘confiscation’ of Germany’s gold.

What do Egypt and Theresa May have in common?

The truth about things can take surprising turns.  With one upcoming post on the EPA, it seems the truth damns Republicans but it still must be told, for all that.  This one now, today, doesn’t seem to help any particular western group but once again – for all that, it still needs telling. Sitting back and drawing breath, staring at the words on the page of the article I’m about…

A pensioner who defecated in public, urinated on shop windows and swore at police officers has been given an Asbo, banning him from part of Caterham for five years. Lovely. Drink is not mentioned as a cause, unusually enough. Tandridge safer neighbourhood team Inspector Angie Austin said: “The type of appalling behaviour displayed by James Johnson is something we will never tolerate as it has no place in our society.…

Policy is to blame – all the rest just follows

Britain faces no terror threat unless the govt wants it to, in order to bring in the next bit of legislation.  Hegel is alive and well and the old formula still works. 1.  Create a monster through your policies 2.  Warn people about the threat 3.  Relax the security to let the nutters go for it, later pleading incompetence 4.  A series of ongoing incidents occur, so that people take…

There are quite a few bloggers in our corner of the sphere, plus Breitbart and now Paul Nuttall [UKIP] writes on the smoky-drinky issue. When I was a child, wherever we drove, my father insisted the windows were up and he smoked.  So yes, I passively smoked and sometime back was diagnosed with bronchitis and there’s a sinus problem too, which I don’t put down to that.  My father died of…

For a start, from last night’s Ken Craggs’ piece on today’s backbench debate in parliament, the nature of money creation is going to be covered. The reasons you and I will do nothing on this are many: 1. The source is untrusted – it comes from someone you don’t know, Ken Craggs and is brought by someone you’re not over-enamoured of, James Higham. So it’s off to a bad start.…
