The feminist bubble

Posted on

So the writer and critic of feminism Peter Lloyd posted a Tweet in which he made reference to this story where twenty women invaded a men-only pool in Hampstead dressed as men. They were protesting about the proposed legislation that would allow anyone to go to a gender-segregated pool if they merely ‘identified’ as that […]

The biggest enemy agent of them all

Posted on

Philby. Burgess. Maclean. Anthony Blunt. George Blake. John Cairncross. Goronwy Rees. Edith Tudor-Hart. Arthur Wynn. David Floyd. Percy Glading. Bob Stewart. John Symonds. Dave Springhall. Have we uncovered all the British Communist spies and traitors? Hardly. The biggest one of all still operates, sometimes called out, but never disciplined, and now brazenly out in the […]

Windows 10 update failure hell

Posted on

I’m in the tenth circle of Hell — Windows 10 hell, that is. I still can’t get my main computer to update to either the Fall Creators 1709 update from last year, or the latest 1803 update. I can usually work out these sort of computer problems eventually, but this time I’m giving up because […]

Self-confessed shallow woman suddenly knows what’s good for all women after taking up running

Posted on

Some born-again runner called Helen Croydon is acting like most born-again types do: It might seem like an odd coupling: the glamorous, glossy, raunchy Rita Ora, rarely seen in a photograph without brows, lashes and lips painted to perfection; and… football. The singer and TV talent show judge is backing a campaign with UEFA to get more […]

What a mistake-a to make-a

Posted on

I don’t think it’s well-known that the Germans could have crushed the Russian Bolshevik government in its early days, but chose not to. The Bolsheviks had a tentative grip on power, and Russia was in chaos. The Germans debated whether to go in to Moscow and St. Petersburg and remove Lenin and his cronies. In […]

The Death of Stalin review

Posted on

Watched The Death of Stalin tonight. I broadly agree with Peter Hitchens’ view that it’s disgusting that the left thinks this is a suitable topic to have a giggle about. The historical errors niggled at me. And I hesitate to say anything positive about something that involves that creep David Schneider. But despite all that, […]
