The Catalan conundrum

Watching the great and good take sides on this issue, it doesn’t seem straightforward. Imagine. Merkel gets her EU army…. look at your future #CatalanReferendum pic.twitter.com/axSEKRwREo — Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) October 1, 2017 For the record, the results were: Official…

Mandalay

Quite appropriate, Boris, for an international gathering: ‘Er petticoat was yaller an’ ‘er little cap was green, An’ ‘er name was Supi-yaw-lat – jes’ the same as Theebaw’s Queen, An’ I seed her first a-smokin’ of a whackin’ white cheroot,…

UKIP

Henry Bolton the comb over man, ex-security, ex-Lib Dem. All right, someone here must say something – Guido and all the other pundits have. They couldn’t find much to say. Not impressed personally, not that anything I’m not impressed with…

The post-fact age

As with many people online, I get emailed various publications’ material, including Wired, the tech site and everyone has his or her own system of honing sources generally trusted and those not trusted. Wired, to me, is fine when exposing…

Football goes gay

Largely from Amfortas but I’d also exploded and have a a letter in draft to Geelong Football club telling them I’m not renewing my membership. There’s an ex-Geelong player who also came out and let rip: OUTSPOKEN Footy Show host…

Water

Spectator: Last week Michael Robinson of the BBC presented a superb documentary on what Thames Water had done to London and the southeast. Most infamously, the company poured 1.4 billion litres of sewage into the Thames near Marlow alone, destroying…

When pollies renege

This is not about Jacob Rees Mogg but begins with him: I tweeted that if he truly thinks that and is not just seeing off Boris’s challenge, and always assuming the MSM is not lying/distorting in this case, then he’s…

That which we but whisper

The story of Sally Quinn goes one step further than CIA and Operation Mockingbird. It puts what’s going on into a category most people do not wish to go near. Years ago, I wrote about Katie Graham, the Washington Post…
