Viceroy’s House – More white man bashing

19th August 2017 0

Earlier this year Viceroy’s House – about Mountbatten and the partition of India – played to packed cinemas. The climax of the film comes when, with only three days to go, the judge who has been drawing up a boundary line between India and the new state of Pakistan, tells Ismay, the British chief of staff, that he needs more … [Read on]

He who will prepare a table for us in the presence of our enemies

Why is Jacob Rees-Mogg so mocked and derided? Theresa May said she “giggled” when it was suggested he might be a candidate for the Tory leadership. “Giggled”? That’s nothing: I wept when the stupendously incompetent and inept Theresa May was promoted to high office. In fact Rees-Mogg is by no means universally mocked.

The front pages are full of it with headlines: “Massacre….Terrorism…Evil strikes again…Holiday horror…” The always enterprising Sun sports “BASTARDS!” Why will none of these editors tell the true story? We know who the “Terrorists” are. We know who are inflicting “Massacre” and the “Horror.”  In every case they are Muslims. “Muslim” is the most accurate description of the perpetrators. Some may be … [Read on]

8th August 2017 7

Our children and grandchildren will put Jeremy Corbyn into Number Ten.

Poggers, elves and baby Barbara Windsors

On a recent trip to sunny Shropshire it was relaxing to leave behind the London centred, southern bubble of anxiety about tortuous sexual politics, currently flooding our cultural world, led by the National Trust, Tate Modern with its six month long ‘Queer British Art,’ the BBC disporting its TV ‘Queer season,’ which even managed to get into the trenches of … [Read on]

Brexit – letting go of Nanny’s hand

2nd August 2017 3

There are varieties of fatuity – and then we come to Archbishop Justin Welby. Yet again this week he offered to the nation the benefit of his boundless wisdom and called for a cross-party commission to negotiate Britain’s departure from the European Union. He said major decisions should be “taken off the political table.” Even someone with less perspicuity than Welby – always supposing … [Read on]
