11th October 2017 1

The National Federation of Butchers have been awarded this year’s prize for services to vegetarianism. Praising the butchers, the Chair of the Vegetarian Alliance, Ms Flora Vegan-Nutter, said, “We know that butchers are not usually the strictest vegetarians, but the other day I watched a video of a butcher with two sprouts by the side of his T-bone steak. So the … [Read on]

For God’s sake Go!

5th October 2017 8

The fate which befell the writing on the wall behind Theresa May as she made her speech yesterday contained a message. (He that hath ears to hear, let him hear). One of the letters fell off the wall. “It was the “F” that was off. It is a measure of the intellectual feebleness and moral frailty of the Tory hierarchy that … [Read on]

Corbynism – Valve radios for the digital age

30th September 2017 19

It’s countdown to Corbyn. We shall not be kept waiting for long before we find ourselves living – if “living” is the right word here – under the most extreme left wing government Britain has ever seen. Corbyn’s plans make Michael Foot’s 1983 manifesto – called at the time “the longest suicide note in history” – read like a discussion paper produced by The Monday … [Read on]

Church of Clowns

28th September 2017 7

When I fancy a bit of excitement, which even at my ripe age I’m pleased to say is every day, I turn to the Church of England’s official website. Of course, the C. of E. being a dynamic, thrusting and very much up with the latest outfit, this is not called anything so dreary as Official Website: no, it’s called … [Read on]

We will fight them with our floral tributes

25th September 2017 5

As a result of last Sunday’s elections, the AFD, the third largest party in Germany, has declared that Muslims are not welcome in that country. Meanwhile in Holland, the second largest party has said the same. Even the most cursory examination of social trends in the European nations helps explain this antipathy. Brussels  has become the jihadist capital of Europe, a city where … [Read on]

Corbyn’s Labour Party; so far left it is Far Right ?

24th September 2017 10

After today’s elections it seems likely that the Alternative for Germany party will hold seats in the country’s parliament. The BBC and all our newspapers are appalled. First item on the news this morning the presenter said, “This will be the first time members of the far right have achieved significant political representation since the days of Hitler’s Nazis.” I … [Read on]

Theresa May. For God’s sake go!

23rd September 2017 3

That’s it then. It’s all over, folks. We are going to leave the EU, but “leave” will effectually mean “stay.” Theresa May has already amply earned from me the epithets “spectacularly incompetent” and “sublimely inept.” To these we can now add “traitorous .” In her last Friday’s Florence Speech, the prime minister gave away the household silver – £20million worth – when she promised … [Read on]

Master of Lies

22nd September 2017 5

I sympathise with the writers and performers of W1A, the BBC comedy drama which has just begun its third series. W1A is advertised as a satire on the BBC itself This is an impossibility, for the BBC is beyond satire. How would you go about satirising a Corporation… Whose economics and political presenters constantly bash the bankers and other fat cats but then … [Read on]
