In August, the Jay report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham set out the horrific scale of the town’s problem, the vicious abuse that shattered victims’ lives, and the “blatant” failures of the authorities to stop or prevent it. Yes, yes, terrible business. Tell me how the victims suffer? Almost four months later, the town is still reeling. Community spirit unravelled in the wake of the investigation, which confirmed that…

One needs to be a little bit careful, methinks, to take a story such as this: ‘Heartless’ council threaten to take Violet, 100, to court on Christmas Eve over £9,000 nursing home fees  … at face value. As one reader said, this sounds fishy as there are mechanisms for the aged, even in our increasingly heartless society.  With all that offspring, grandchildren etc., where are they?  Why aren’t they chipping…

Carrie Grant (Ed: Really..?) is a modern martyr, people, so listen up when she opines! We have four children with additional needs: our eldest, Olivia, 20, has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyspraxia and is studying drama at university; Talia, 13, has Asperger’s and dyscalculia; Imogen, 8, has autism including Tourette’s; while our adopted son, who is five years old, has attachment difficulties. I can only wonder why they…

This relatively innocuous moan about TV shows: Why do all the best TV shows have the worst endings? From The Missing to The Fall and Homeland, viewers are so often left in despair  … belies what is really going on beneath the surface of society. Many pundits more august than me have warned about it, I’ve warned about it, society ignores it because it thinks it knows better. What it comes…

… on trying to enter the building, they were held back by security – who were branded heavy-handed and “state police” by some of the protestors who chanted: “Housing is a human right, not a privilege.” My, that list of alleged ‘human rights’ grows longer and longer… John Hamilton from People Before Profit said: “The priority should be building council houses for rent rather than creating an expensive ghetto for…

The politicization of Science

December 16, 2014 10 Comments

The beauty of the net and political blogging is that data is always coming in from disparate sources. This one, on the climate change targets, comes from the mother of one of my blog’s contributors, Rossa. Straight to it: Many of us have been misled to believe that the 2°C was established by leading climate scientists and even made to “international law” that now has to be strictly adhered to,…

Bus companies are not required by law to force parents with buggies to make way for wheelchair users in designated bays on vehicles, senior judges ruled. First Bus appealed against a court ruling, won by a disabled man from West Yorkshire, that the firm’s wheelchair policy was discriminatory. Oh, dear! This doesn’t bode well – disability lobby losing out to chavmum lobby! Mr Paulley attempted to board the bus in…

Whites segregated at race equality demos in U.S.

Kerry Smith

Seems to me Kerry Smith must stand down or be removed. You can say all you like that this is gutter politics, dredging up something probably obtained illegally, that a man should not be judged by his choice of fruity expressions. In a fair world, maybe not. But in a constituency UKIP have [or had?] a good chance of taking, there are too many non-voters and undecideds who will heed…

A new type of anti-immigration protest is sweeping across Germany, as thousands take to the streets against what they say is the growing “Islamisation” of the country. How absurd? What’s the German for ‘We welcome this addition to our diverse culture’ again? The new protests, which began in the city of Dresden in the former East Germany, feature no neo-Nazi slogans and have nothing to do with the traditional far…
