Easter Day

April 20, 2014 4 Comments
By

There are three interesting articles on Christianity at the Spectator, obviously occasioned by Easter. If we can pass over the pagan aspects of the fertility rite to the Christian/Passover, today is clearly the one upon which the entire faith rests. Historians don’t seriously question the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth but they do fall out over the arising. For the people of the time, the arising is certainly the clincher…

Never Satisfied…

April 18, 2014 8 Comments

I guess that’s why we call people like Frances O’Grady ‘progressives’ – it certainly isn’t their results! Employers told us it would cost two million jobs; rightwing politicians saw it as interference in the market; and even some trade unions thought the state should keep out of wage regulation. Not so long ago, the minimum wage was a minority cause. Fifteen years on from its introduction, politicians now compete for…

Oppression depends on the ambition of the wannabe

April 17, 2014 5 Comments

There’s a vid below by Bill Whittle which you may or may not wish to watch – it’s U.S. specific, it’s tea partyish and yet it also touches on a universal truth: The elite in any society cannot oppress without an army of small people who are wannabee big people and who imagine themselves special. Two immediate examples spring to mind, one stemming from the other. First is that old…

The proposed TTIP: Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

April 15, 2014 1 Comment
By

The proposed TTIP was French newsweekly Marianne‘s cover story this week. Strange that it’s a big topic in France and less so here. The TTIP entry on Wikipedia covers both sides of the treaty but paints a rosy picture overall. The French are concerned that it will wipe out farmers’ co-operatives and small agricultural ventures. They add that GMO crops and more relaxed pesticide use could also be on the…

The 34th State

April 14, 2014 1 Comment
By

A move in the US we should perhaps be aware of: Last week Michigan’s legislature voted and passed a resolution calling for a Constitutional Convention. They are the 34th state to do so, and this should trigger the Convention of the States. Pretty major, yet the MSM is ignoring it. Under Article 5 of the US Constitution, if 2/3rds of the states call for such a convention, (meaning 34 states)…

Tutu Goes Koo-Koo…

Desmond Tutu jumps a Megalodon-sized shark over climate change: Twenty-five years ago people could be excused for not knowing much, or doing much, about climate change. How nice of you to excuse them, your worshipfulness. Except I seem to recall, back then, all the alarmist reports about a ‘new Ice Age’… Today we have no excuse. No more can it be dismissed as science fiction; we are already feeling the…

Took their time didn’t they?

The islamic republic of Tower Hamlets has been the centre of islamic extremism and electoral corruption in the UK for at least a decade now. Blogs like this and others have been repeating the allegations and news from the area for a number of years and even the MSM has disclosed a great deal of details on what’s allegedly been going on. As ever it seems to take a few…

There was a great deal of unwarranted hysteria on Twitter yesterday over this case: The abuser, a church-going professional in his 50s, has requested the return from police of his computer and phone which are understood to contain family photographs taken during the eight years that he was in a relationship with the victims’ mother.The children are said to be highly distressed at the prospect of the images being returned…

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…

More Collective Punishment! It’s For Our Own Good!

Supermarkets and off-licences are being banned from selling alcohol in areas where ambulances are frequently called to drink-related emergencies. And we all know how having a small sherry before tripping over a kerbstone magically logs you as having had ‘a drink related incident’, don’t we? Sainsbury’s had an application to sell alcohol from 8am-11pm at its store at 91-93 St John Street refused last April. Residents complained of revellers “pre-loading”…

Why Isn’t John Pilger Shouting About This From The Rooftops?

April 7, 2014 2 Comments

After all, he seems less than keen on stealing children when the Australian State does it. Or is it OK if the UK State does it? A unique High Court bid by social workers from Haringeyto break up a family by giving two young children new identities and banning their five older sisters and brothers from seeing them was stopped in its tracks by a judge today. Senior Family Division…

Give me the child…

“Give me the child, and I will mould the man.” “Give me the child for seven years, and I will give you the man.” “Give me the child until he is seven and I care not who has him thereafter.” “Give me the child till the age of seven and I will show you the man.”   There are moves afoot by radicals in the religion of perpetual offence to…

How the EU coerces national legislation

April 5, 2014 2 Comments

It was easy to debunk Clegg’s lie about the 7% – a very silly ploy on his part, trying the “primary legislation” subterfuge. Below is a post by IPJ from 2010, explaining how EU directives become our laws: August 28th, 2010 When politicians explain that laws are made in Westminster they are only giving you a half truth, so please ask them to explain what I am about to show…

You’re Right, Unnamed Harrow Resident, It Is ‘Utterly Barmy’…

April 5, 2014 1 Comment

…but not for the reason you give: One Harrow resident said: ‘We live in a society where a cabbie can be told not to fly the St George flag in his car or people can’t display them in offices. And yet this guy gets away with posting a picture of Saddam Hussain in his window. It is utterly barmy.’ You should be standing firm with him and demanding the same…

Who’s your favourite world leader?

Ahead of tonight’s debate, The Lib Dem Independent tried to canvass people’s opinions on world leaders. Question – who’s your favourite? As Wiggia, who sent it to me, said: “They should never have asked. LOL.”
