Brexit

Peckerhead

Posted on

Here’s an article extraordinary for its lack of self-knowledge. The first half contains a degree of sneering against ordinary Leavers that even the Guardian might consider a bit over the top: Parliament Square was a knuckle-dragging carnival of irredeemable stupidity   What makes Britain’s independence day different from those that have gone before it that its […]

Clueless

Posted on

Here we have a silly piece on Erasmus by a student. First of all she complains about how much slacker her British University was than the Danish one she went to. In Denmark, my classmates called out, engaged in debates and challenged the course content. They even challenged our professors for not including scholars from […]

Some news items of interest

Posted on

Catching up with some news items I’ve meaning to bring you. Accusation that five members of Joe Biden’s family have benefited through him: one particular politician — Joe Biden — emerges as the king of the sweetheart deal, with no less than five family members benefiting from his largesse, favorable access and powerful position for […]

Quote of the Day

Posted on

From Gavin Longmuir in the comments: From a civil engineering perspective, as one of the profs at Grayvington U might say, restoration of a crumbling old tower is akin to walking on eggshells — preserve the exterior façade while rebuilding and strengthening the interior. A single mistake, the tower falls down, and the civil engineer […]

Tactical Brexit

Here’s a website that provides information about tactical Leave voting: http://tacticalbrexit.org/ They do a thing called ‘Brexit Affinity’ which is not explained, but it gives you overall advice on who to vote for in your constituency, so overall a good thing. Share this article on social media:

2019 general election

Boris jumped on the seesaw

Posted on

Earlier this  year I wrote that the Tories were coming close to the flipping (or tripping) point, the point at which their voters switch on masse to another party once they realise that that other party is the main chance. I think the Tories came perilously close to that point, and I think that had […]

Parris advocated crushing himself

Posted on

This is hilarious. An article from Matthew Parris from three and a half years ago has surfaced in which he says that whichever side of the Conservative Party wins the referendum must purge the other side! This applies even if the Leavers win: The Peter Bones, the Liam Foxes, the Chris Graylings, the Priti Patels, […]

TiVo politics

Posted on

TiVo, or Sky+ in the UK, allows you to bypass the crap that TV channels mostly offer up, and create your own channel. It must be twenty years since anyone sat down and watched the same channel all night. (Personally, I never did that, but I remember that plenty of people used to.) Everyone now […]

A new election should empower Boris… to wimp out

Posted on

I think that if we get an election, and the Conservatives (or a Conservative-Brexit Party coalition) win a clear majority, then we should rip up Johnson’s deal and start again. Tell the EU that’s everything’s changed, their deal – because it’s mostly been written by them – wasn’t acceptable to the British people, and if […]

My decision!

Posted on

There’s no need for name-calling and criticism. It’s my decision! I hope people will accept that it has been reached after a lot of soul searching and on the basis of what I think is best for the country and my constituents. Yes, I kidnapped a child and killed and ate it, but I hope […]
