The truth about Communism is going to come out

Posted on

The frightening upsurge in people saying they’re Communists has a flip side. Which is that public interest in, and knowledge about, Communism, which are both currently low, will start to surge. I think this is already starting to happen, such as with The Death of Stalin film. I’ve noticed a lot more discussion of Communism […]

Chucking pies at the left

Posted on

This is another great rant from Jonathan Pie (as acted by Tom Walker). But the problem all along has been liberals like him not understanding what the hard left is about. (It was the same after the February revolution in Russia.) “Where are the artists, the writers, the comedians?” Don’t hold your breath waiting for […]

If media types think the past is a bad place then why do they all want to live there?

Posted on

If you took a read through last weekend’s Sunday Times Best Places to Live in 2018 supplement, you’d be forgiven for thinking something was awry. Because what the writers seem to think counts as a good place to live in ultra-modern 2018 is a traditional middle-class, somewhat old-fashioned but upmarket village, with lots of white […]

Deep State

There is a UK deep state…

Posted on

and it’s possibly worse — in the sense of more entrenched — than the US deep state. I’ve watched the establishment get taken over by the progressive left for twenty-odd years now. It was never going to end well. Recent events, such as the demonisation of anyone who criticizes Islam, the pushing of open borders, […]

Raedwald’s updated ‘Birkenhead Drill’

Posted on

Great post from Raedwald yesterday, where he proposes an updated version of the Birkenhead drill, which basically means ‘women and children first’ in a sinking ship, or in a similar emergency. The new list reads as follows: ORDER OF EVACUATION 1. Persons with protected characteristics in the following order – LBGT BAME female – LBGT […]

Has the pincer movement started?

Posted on

I’ve gone on before about how the leftists’ long march through various institutions is giving them a lot of power (see, for example, this piece). Sooner or later we’re going to see a ‘pincer movement’. Or a multiple pincer movement, where the police, the media, the civil service, the Home Office, social media, tame corporations, […]

The Biscuit Factory

The Biscuit Factory elsewhere

Posted on

That new Worstall rag I mentioned yesterday, The Continental Telegraph, has put up a sample chapter of my novel here. If you’ve failed in your duty to read the sample chapter at my site, then fear no more, no need for the loaded revolver and a bottle of whisky, just head over there and read […]

Another classic non-apology

Posted on

This is David Warner* putting another gem into the non-apology archives: Warner has also made a public apology for his actions. “I just want to apologise for the way it played out,” he told CA’s website. “I regret that situation that happened. I’m sorry for the people I may have let down, our fans and […]

International Women’s Day message from PHE: women can only have half the chocolate that men can

Posted on

There’s been some confusion about Public Health England (PHE) and their recent ‘call’ for meals to have fewer calories. The nannies at PHE are now saying we should follow a 400-600-600 rule, meaning that breakfast should be 400 calories, lunch 600, and dinner/supper 600. Because PHE haven’t been very clear about what they’re saying some […]
