The Fake History of Mary Seacole

9th June 2019 3

Lies, damned lies and statistics’ has nothing on the campaign (overwhelmingly successful) to depict Jamaican businesswoman and Crimean War celebrity Mary Seacole as a medal-winning, daredevil battlefield nurse, who built a hotel, or a clinic, or a combined hotel and clinic, to nurse wounded soldiers (from battles she never saw) and later went on to become the pioneer nurse practitioner … [Read on]

Editorial: Too many people.

6th June 2019 17

Greta Thunberg appeals to the Nordic fantasies of the rich middle classes in Britain; a world of operating room cleanliness, leggy blondes anxious to discuss Marx over an ice-cool shot of aquavit, followed by an atmosphere-burning flight to the Maldives to wail over the absence of marine life, and a contract to write about it in the Guardian. The talk … [Read on]

Welcome back Mr President.

4th June 2019 10

On Monday ‘the guvnor’ touched down in Britain again, this time for a state visit. Welcome back Mr President. There are lots of things to like about President Trump. He’s a patriot and has a real affection for Britain, his mother’s birthplace. He was a wild kid who liked to challenge authority so his father sent him to military school. It worked, he learned … [Read on]

Articles of Surrender

3rd June 2019 3

The EU 27 is triumphant, its super-smart negotiators have outfoxed the ‘Rolls-Royce’ brains in the Foreign Office, reducing the UK to a province of its empire, and its government to a rabble. So runs the official EU version. Its tripe. Whitehall-in Brussels is a pillar of the EU empire. Since 1972, when the Heath government brought the UK into the … [Read on]

Is this the Jeremy Corbyn who sat in the House of Commons listening to Xi Jinping, master of China’s concentration camps, address the quislings?

Jeremy Corbyn, the communist leader of the Labour Party and celebrated anti-semite, is refusing “on principle” – a strange phrase, coming from him – to attend a Buckingham Palace banquet given by the Queen to mark the state visit of President Trump. Corbyn claims the US president had used “racist and misogynist rhetoric.” That’s rather rich, coming from such a … [Read on]

We want our country back

I had always thought that Gracie Fields’ great wartime song, ‘Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye,’ was written with the departing troops in mind, but it was actually sung by Gracie Fields in the 1939 film ‘Shipyard Sally’ to accompany her departure from Glasgow to present a petition from the men of the Clyde to the owners in … [Read on]

Tory Race: Let me have men about me that are fat.

24th May 2019 28

Three Conservative Prime Ministers have now fallen victim to the schism in Conservative Party over Europe: Thatcher, Cameron and now Mrs May. This is because there are two conservative factions in the House of Commons, elitist and populist. Elitists have no time for the ordinary voter, whom they regard as stupid, fat and uneducated, while populists regard central government as … [Read on]

Scrapyard Britain

23rd May 2019 6

British Steel, our second largest steelmaker, is to be liquidated following the failure of rescue talks between the government and Greybull, the American private equity firm that manages it. The government would not provide the £30 million loan needed to tide it over (no way of getting round those EU state aid rules, we are told, and since we are … [Read on]
