Pull the other one! … Mary Brandon said she spent nine hours at hospital receiving treatment following the alleged assault.

…and I think it’s safe to say ‘Epic, monumental FAIL!’ on that one: Should the police be involved in the Kings’ case? Despite this being a painful and sensitive situation, I think it is only right that they are – for two reasons. First, we only have the parents’ say-so that Ashya is well. What they have done may be understandable, but it remains an unusual, extreme act, particularly given…

You Can Have Freedom, But Only The Freedom To Be More Like Us…

Many African countries are politically freer, more prosperous and with better educated populations than at the height of the notorious “big man” regimes: one-party states and military rulers that followed not long after independence. Great news! Right? Well, not entirely: But some leaders who were once seen as enlightened and enthusiastically embraced by the west as the “new breed”, and countries that claim to have embraced more democratic systems, are…

… the possibility that America’s third largest city might elect a union leader over an establishment Democrat marks a broader national shift towards progressive city politics. Across the country, from New York to Seattle and Boston to Pittsburgh, municipal authorities are swinging left. Hurrah! Onwards, comrades, to our glorious victory! But what could be the reason for this dropping of scales from eyes, so all can see the Glorious Shining…

They View You As Livestock…

…and this type of farmer gets upset when the livestock thrives without his interference: A Somerset man has set up his own temporary toll road after growing frustrated with a blocked commuter route between Bath and Bristol. Mike Watts is charging motorists £2 (£1 for motorbikes) to use his bypass, made from rolled chippings, with the A431 between Bath and Bristol not due to re-open until the end of 2014.…

How Will Sacking Someone For Telling Truths You Don’t Want To Hear ‘Help Community Relations’, Then..?

Joseph Wakim is outraged: Baird is not responsible for appointments made by his predecessor. Asking Alhadeff politely to resign for his comments, made at such a tense time, would be the moral thing to do. It would be pro-harmony. And what did he do? Well, so far as I can see, he refused to play the ‘Yeah, but…’ game… Wearing his CEO hat, Alhadeff issued a community update on 9…

Never Satisfied…

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…

Popcorn and a pint of Guinness please! The Equality Authority and travellers group Pavee Point have both called for the article to be withdrawn. However journalist Brenda Power this afternoon defended the article on RTE’s Liveline, condemning the Equality Authority for attempting to ‘shut down debate’. This’ll be good! Martin Collins of Pavee Point defended the group’s criticism of the column. “The article is full of generalisations, assumptions and stereotypes.…

…that’s the newly-formed National Crime Agency: The National Crime Agency has issued a warning … About terrorism? Drugs? Fraud? … to users of “hook-up” apps like Grindr that they must take responsibility for checking the people they meet are above the age of consent. Oh. Right. Ummm…. …while the NSPCC said that it did not collect specific figures relating to such apps, it has seen a noticeable rise in calls…

Are All ‘Controversial Issues’ To Be Welcomed, Then?

September 21, 2013 6 Comments
By

An education that feeds students unquestioning patriotism – or, for that matter, unquestioning anything – and squelches any initiative they may take to explore controversial issues is not likely to produce free-thinking, independent-minded citizens. Bold words, Svetlana! Bold words indeed. Say, how do you suppose students would be treated should they decide to challenge the left-wing and ‘right on’ views of their teachers? No, no, no need to bother to…

Disney’s summer blockbuster The Lone Ranger has faced criticism for… Nonsensical plot? Embarrassingly bad performances? Losing money hand over fist? … its portrayal of Butch Cavendish, the film’s villain, with a prosthetic cleft lip. Errr…. Although there have been many portrayals of the character on screen, Disney is the first studio to present him as facially disfigured. Disney describes the character, who is played by William Fichtner, as “a ruthless…

Cuts to legal aid are forcing the closure of almost a third of Shelter’s housing advice centres and compelling the Red Cross to abandon its assistance for family reunions, the organisations claim. Family reunions? Why the fiends! Wait. What sort of ‘family’ are we talking about here? The British Red Cross says the cuts will force it to withdraw expert help to those trying to bring their children into the United…

When the kids have rumbled the flaw in your grand plan, you know you’ve lost… Pupil Jake Phillips, 15, said that “speakeasies” are starting up selling the prohibited drinks. “There is business potential now there’s a gap in the market,” he said.“Gangsters sold alcohol in America when that was banned. Prohibition always leads to supply and demand. That means anyone who sneaks it in can make a lot of money.”…

Who Do You Think You Are Kidding, Social Workers?

Screaming headline in the ‘Indy’: Oh noes! Disaster! Oh, the terrible Tory cuts! Anthony Douglas, chief executive of Cafcass, which safeguards the welfare of children involved in family court proceedings, said he expected to see a leap in child neglect cases as thousands of struggling families were pushed over the financial edge in the coming months. Really, Anthony? You really think so? Because I’m sceptical, to say the least: Riley…

Theo Hobson takes issue with Roger Scruton’s religion: Is Roger Scruton a Christian? Based on his new book, Our Church: a Personal History of the Church of England, I am inclined to doubt it. Errr, why..? Has the publisher printed an upside-down cross on the front, or something? He says that he is, and he goes to church – he even plays the organ there. His Tory traditionalist form of…
