Who’s afraid of Enoch Powell?

15th April 2018 43

The BBC is broadcasting Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech performed by the actor Ian McDiarmid. The speech is not going to be delivered whole, but interspersed by ‘’contemporary commentary’’ — a kind of politically approved intermission to prevent viewers from digesting too much undiluted hate speech. But even this edited version has provoked the authoritarian sensibilities of the multiculturalist left. … [Read on]

Putin: Russia’s Capo di tutti Capi

7th April 2018 16

When I first read that Putin was worth £20 billion, I thought it must be a misprint. Admittedly, £20 million would be on the low side for a Russian dictator, and so £200 million or even £2 billion (property is expensive these days) would seem fitting. But the shameless greed and depravity that would enable someone, by sheer virtue of … [Read on]

Trump: The Equaliser

4th April 2018 9

President Trump’s proposed tariffs have attracted almost universal criticism, both in Europe and America, from commentators of all political persuasions and from economists. The spectre of protectionism, the retreat behind tariff walls, and the demise of international free trade looms large and threatens the prosperity of all countries, America included and perhaps America most of all. Such is the stupidity, … [Read on]

Funny foreigners and their crafty voting habits

3rd April 2018 7

The House of Lords several times vetoed an EU demand that elections to Strasbourg in Britain abandon first-past-the-post and instead adopt an electoral system favoured by Brussels, a version of the cleverly-named ‘proportional representation’ (PR) method. Of course the EU got its way in the end. Perhaps Agent Blair threw the hereditary peers out just to put a stop to … [Read on]

War in Yemen

31st March 2018 2

Yemen is a country of paradoxes. In classical times it was called Arabia Felix – but today it is a most unhappy place. The people are generous – yet they have nothing to give. They are hospitable – but many of them have not the wherewithal to be hosts, their houses having been destroyed by the three-year old war that … [Read on]

Corbyn’s Jewish Problem

29th March 2018 4

Why is anyone surprised that Corbyn’s Labour party is riddled with anti-Semitism? Nobody could have levelled the accusation against the Labour party of old, whose overriding aim was the betterment of the living conditions of the working class – an honourable and worthy endeavour, in which Jews played a prominent part. But for the neo-Marxist anti-capitalist social justice warriors of … [Read on]

Editorial; Fake British Citizens.

28th March 2018 7

When the BBC smugly announced that two ‘British’ Jihadists with Arabic names accused of torturing, crucifying and beheading unarmed civilians had been captured in Syria, many British listeners were enraged. What could be less British? What would foreigners think we as a nation had come to? This type of slap in the face is intentional, frequent and part of the … [Read on]

Asset stripping ‘The Few’

28th March 2018 7

As the battle for control of GKN, Britain’s largest and oldest engineering firm, whose products have ranged from cannonballs to Spitfires, reaches a climax (shareholders will vote on Thursday), Business Secretary Greg Clark has finally spoken. The government has been silent on the matter ever since Melrose, the corporate raider cum asset stripper, launched a £7 billion bid for GKN … [Read on]
