Theodore Dalrymple is a retired prison doctor and psychiatrist. A highly popular journalist, he writes for The Times, The British Medical Journal,The Observer, Daily Telegraph, Spectator, The Salisbury Review and is contributing editor to the City Journal where he is Dietrich Weismann Fellow. His books include, ‘Life at the Bottom’, ‘Our Culture’, What’s Left of It’ ‘Spoilt Rotten: The Toxic Cult of Sentimentality’ ‘The Worldview that Makes the Underclass’. 'Dalrymple's work,' writes Daniel Hannnan, 'takes pessimism about human nature to a new level....once you get past the initial shock of reading about battered wives, petty crooks and junkies from a non-Left perspective, you find humanity and pathos.'

Is this the most toe curlingly politically correct
town in the country?

Last August it was widely reported that Brighton had
been named ‘the UK’s worst seaside resort’ by a
reputable travel website.  read

Who are today's racial extremists?

Contrary to what academic elites, government
officials, and the mainstream media tell us, immigrant

29th of June Jane Kelly. How Socialism Destroyed Working Class Children

A rather dull programme about Prince Charles, on Radio 4, 29th June, 2014, did make one very disturbing revelation. When David Blunkett was Labour Party secretary of state for education, he was in touch with the prince who wanted the government to increase the number of grammar schools.


5th of July. Theodore Dalymple. Is football pornography by other means?

It isn't been easy to avoid the World Cup, impossible if one takes the newspapers. Nor has the competition been entirely without interest: for example, how and why does a man like Luis Suarez become a serial biter of his opponents? Why does he not learn to keep his teeth to himself?
4th July Theodore Dalrymple. 125% of all French school children will soon pass their baccalauréat

One of the advantages of living in two countries - in my case Britain and France - is the realisation that modern madness is international. This, of course, is a great consolation for any patriot who sees his own country sliding ever further down the slope of institutionalised idiocy.
Sunday the 23rd June. Jane Kelly watches our middle class doing the cultural cringe before Islam

When I was a student in the 'cold war' the west had somehow lost the ideological battle. While the people on the eastern side of the Berlin wall were fretting about their lack of freedom, privileged kids like my friends and me considered that they were highly lucky to live under the Soviet yoke.

11th of June. Jane Kelly on the apology of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner for the death of Cherry Groce. “Thank you Sir Bernard but haven't you forgotten somebody ?”

June 15th 1381 innocent bystander Wat Tyler killed during a raid on his hovel by officers of the king, although he was no longer considered a threat. Obviously the raid should have been called off and his death was due to complete incompetence on behalf of the forces of law and order at the time. Some of us, his descendants and all right thinking people, and those with constituents around the Southwark area, are still awaiting an apology!

The Apology
11th July. Theodore Dalrymple. Sir Bert the political pygmy

Researching an article about Mr Huhne recently, I was struck by how many public figures now use diminutives of their names. There have always been a few who have done so, of course, but now it is a mass phenomenon, like drunkenness in public. Chris himself does so.

12th July. Jane Kelly. Judicial Savagery

I wonder how many comedians from the 1970s are still walking about free? In this newly censorious world in which we live, I think somewhere circa 1700, I am awed by the behaviour of the judiciary. They tend to let dangerous criminals go to open prison, refuse to deport convicted terrorists and illegal immigrants, give tiny sentences to drunken drivers who kill children and vandals who cut the heads off swans, but get out the black cap for old men who, eons ago in an age of sexual license, had what we in those distant times called WHT, or 'wandering hand trouble.'

                                      Thought for the Day


Labour speaks the truth when it says wages are static while prices are rising. This is the result of their mass importation of unskilled, cheap labour from Africa and the Far East while at the same time turning our universities into degree shops selling useless certificates at £18,000 a pop. Labour, like all socialist elites, from East German to Cuba, seeks to create an uneducated helot class to serve their nomenklatura.
17th July Theodore Dalrymple. Tattoing and the World Cup

Although football is hardly the American national sport, the New York Times ran more than one article about the German victory in the World Cup, with links to sites that explained the part that advanced technology had played in it. For example, physiological monitoring of the players in training allowed the manager to select those to play who were at the peak of their fitness. The German team also had a specially built training camp that was exactly calculated to its needs. There the players could enjoy both privacy and a social life to encourage team spirit. But all of this, it seems to me, is beside the point.....
