The hills are alive with the sound of PC

30th July 2019 28

Every year the BBC extravagantly boasts that its Promenade Concerts are “the world’s greatest series of concerts of classical music.” Well, let’s see… This is how they bill tonight’s offering: “The BBC Proms takes over the newly refurbished Battersea Arts Centre for a showcase of provocative, witty and boundary-crossing composer-performers, who have been driving new music in previously unimagined directions.” … [Read on]

The Creeping War on Christian Civilisation

11th July 2019 18

There is a creeping war against everything that symbolises Christianity: attacks on mountain summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches and recently also on cemeteries. That is the conclusion of a comprehensive report by PI-News a German press agency which has gathered its information from scores of Catholic and Protestant churches, their priests and pastors.

Trump raises America’s living standards, and the left hate him for it.

Among the latter, we might mention welfarism, high taxes, regulations, constant … [Read on]

Islamomania

17th May 2019 45

At the request of several Muslim institutions, the government intends to strengthen the definition of “Islamophobia” so that in future it will read: “Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness.” No it isn’t, and it could never be that. Here we have a fine example of what Wittgenstein described in his … [Read on]

St Brian Epstein: Canonised by the BBC

16th May 2019 8

I don’t normally listen to anything presented by Matthew Parris. I was inoculated against him some years ago. But the other day by accident I came in for the last quarter of an hour of an edition of his programme Great Lives when the subject was Brian Epstein, manager of The Beatles from 1961 until his death from a drugs overdose a few years … [Read on]
