Some Friday afternoon name-calling fun

Posted on

Recently I tweeted this: I’m not going to call lefties ‘lefties’ any more. It suggests there’s something still slightly loveable about them, or that I still feel some affection for them, despite our differences. But those days are long gone. As Kurt Schlichter says, ‘The left hates you. Act accordingly’. The question remains, though, as […]

Non-violent violence

Posted on

I spent all of yesterday in a mostly useless workshop, of the sort I had hoped I’d left behind when I got out of academia. My favourite bit was when a self-righteous left-wing woman said, “When I hear people talking down social care and charities I really want to punch them in the face. Not […]

Feminism

Welcome to the hut

Posted on

I’ve been saying for a while now (especially on my Twitter page)  that white feminists are quite mistaken if they think that they’re on the top of the victimhood tree.

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

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 […]

Good Heinlein quote

From Time Enough For Love: “Even so, the problems of a planet with more than a billion people can keep a man busy, especially if his intention is to govern as little as possible – as that means he must keep a sharp eye out and his ear tuned for signs that subordinates are doing […]

The ‘Fuck Off and Die’ list

Posted on

The title explains it all, really. Who should be on it? The following is hardly definitive, but it’s a start. Add who you want in the comments.   THE FUCK OFF AND DIE LIST In no particular order Corbyn’s Labour (obvious, yes, but we can hardly leave them out) May’s Conservatives Hillary, Bernie, and the […]
