This post is designed to be read in conjunction with the former, on Teenagegirlocracy. It comes from The Times via Derek Martin, through Wiggia: An Obituary printed in the London Times….. Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic…

Patriot Act being rolled back?

May 14, 2015 1 Comment
By

From Bill Sticker: In case you hadn’t seen it, US Congress has passed a partial antidote to the infamous Patriot Act by a ‘landslide’. Picked up at ‘Wired’ magazine, here: http://www.wired.com/2015/05/house-passes-usa-freedom-act/ Now all it has to do is slink through the senate and somehow avoid a Presidential veto. Has the civil liberties pendulum begun to swing back?

May 12, 2015 Comments Off on Cast-Iron’s masterly handling of the boat people
By

By Wiggia: The man charged with taking care of the matter further down, first a general profile of Cast Iron and his ways: An early test for Cast Iron’s resolve conveniently has surfaced just after the elections as the EU puts forward it’s scheme for allocations of the migrants coming across the Med in ramshackle boats and then to be picked up by various Navy’s and brought to the mainland…

Those worthy people appointed to be in charge of us

From Wiggia: Today’s riot police: … and in the sixties at the last Oswald Mosley meeting in the East End of London taken with my trusty Rollieflex: And in a similar vein, Italian protestors bringing a whole new meaning to leading from the front: Meanwhile, those fine folk in charge of our lives have been blocking any transparency in their expenses, seemingly for ever: http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/574154/MEPs-provoke-anger-BLOCKING-move-reveal-expenses And of course, another example…

Leaving a will – will you be ripped off?

Leaving a will – will you be ripped off?

This is from guestposter Wiggia: It was a reply some time ago by Rossa to an article that jogged the old grey matter into stating that our will needed changing. Like most people, a will is not something anyone wants to contemplate but eventually needs must and that time has arrived, the reply by Rossa was in respect to charity giving and the minefield it has become with all the…

For OoL readers – best pre-Christmas wine buys

Speaking with Julia about this, we thought we might go outside the OoL brief pre-Christmas for readers who buy wine in and are looking at the below £15 mark. Wiggia is a non-snobby wine buff with an eye to what people would like to try and can afford and thus we think this a valuable guide. He consumes a huge variety of these, so it is in mellow mood he…

The case for Catalonian independence

The case for Catalonian independence

Foreword by JH: The brief of OoL is liberty and you could argue that breaking up a nation is liberty but you could argue that it isn’t. For example, the EU divides England into nine regions it wants to fund separately and therefore control – example is the socialist Common Purpose run Yorkshire Forward and the old South West of England Regional Development Agency from Blair’s time. Catalonia though has a…

Lord Hill

September 13, 2014 3 Comments
By

From Wiggia: Much has been made of the appointment of Lord Hill to the post of European Commisioner, that David Cameron should put him forward for the job was an understatement of some magnitude , as he was to all intents and purpose invisible. But as the same Lord Hill is now to get the EU post of overseeing the EU’s financial services “shake up”, one would think some background…

The Rise of the Rothschilds

July 5, 2014 Comments Off on The Rise of the Rothschilds
By

Sometimes a post is clearly for the blogger’s own site, sometimes it’s clearly an OoL affair. Sometimes it needs to go on both as a reference archive. This is a long piece, no doubt garnering few comments, if any but that’s no reason not to put it up – better to have a reference bloggers can use than hidden away in the minutes of some select committee. Ken Craggs is…

The NHS and switching GPs

May 6, 2014 Comments Off on The NHS and switching GPs
By

Guestpost by Wiggia: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/doctors/Pages/patient-choice-GP-practices.aspx In October this year, patients will, in theory, be able to switch GPs. Oh joy, some of us will say, but of course, as with all things, it seems there is a catch. This will only be possible if the practices have signed up to the scheme in the first place. Well, there’s a surprise. The obvious problem is that in rural areas and areas such…

Miller and small government

April 10, 2014 3 Comments
By

Wiggia writes: A trend running through the general commentary on the Maria Miller affair, has been why have we a “culture” minister in the first place, it is an unnecessary dept. A recent HOC select committee report said that a third of all MPs or PPS would have ministerial status, the report suggested that 70 – 80 was sufficient and that from MPs. The increase has been relentless over the…

The EU, UKIP, the Harrogate Agenda, Autonomous Mind

By Wiggia: There is something very strange going on, with the three main parties worried that UKIP might at last have enough potential votes to effect there status quo, those who in the past broadly supported the party and Farage are putting the boot in. The reasons to a degree are valid if the minutiae of things said or printed or indeed not are examined in that way. § http://autonomousmind.wordpress.com/2014/02/10/it-has-been-laid-out-clearly-but/…

Lord Smith and the Environmental Agency

Lord Smith and the Environmental Agency

From Wiggia: The Environment Agency has been getting a lot of stick recently, especially over the flooding in the Somerset Levels. Now nobody can stand in the way of nature when conditions are way above anything that can be anticipated and nobody ever will, but this authority has undoubtedly failed in its duty of maintenance time and again regards rivers and watercourses. A little bit of history spells out that…
