Liberalism and conservatism

D for Doom is an interesting character who uses political words in strange ways. I think this is about where each of us is coming from. I’ve seen him use the term conservative pejoratively, note the very important small ‘c’…

Saturday politics

1. What an absolutely moronic headline: Brexit REVEALED: Theresa May handed a lifeline in ‘£80bn’ Brexit victory How is paying £80bn after £37bn in any way, shape or form a “lifeline” or a “victory”?  It’s not that they themselves are…

Lost the plot

1. Quite bizarre story at the Express: There are generally three different types of Tommy detractors – the seemingly rational but still deluded who quote someone called the Secret Barrister who has been shown to be quite wrong by their…

Genesis of the Deplorables

Why we are now running rampant, why Trump was elected [H/T Rossa’s mother]: You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech. You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms. You created “us” when you attacked…

PM Boris?

Project Fear in all its evil

RIP Godfrey Elfwick

That so many were gulled into believing such self-evidently ludicrous pronouncements points to the degradation of political discourse on the internet which Elfwick sought to deride. Spiked has a nice piece on him: In November 2016, the Guardian published a…

What a bleedin’ nerve!

I’m not referring to the gallant lass. We can write copious paragraphs, or we can show a Canadian girl travelling to the end of the earth to show that this is a worldwide problem: There are things about Lauren Southern…

Racism

Just another stream of consciousness: Excuse my ignorance but that image we have of the cotton plantations and all those films – my thoughts are Louisiana I suppose but I don’t know why I thought that. New Orleans. Now I…

Pizzagate

There is no more important topic than this and yet there is no topic more fraught with disinformation, refusal to consider, dismissal and a hundred obstacles to understanding. There is no topic more heavily dependent on copious pre-reading and having…
