The Racism of the Left

30th June 2021 15

Forty years ago, a colleague told me that he did not like black people. I asked him why, and he replied: ‘because they don’t wash’. Now obviously I realised the absurdity of this view. Such generalisations – the hallmark of racism – have nowadays been banished from respectable society. At least, they have on the Right; for a genetic mutation … [Read on]

Ofsted rears a generation of human hyenas

28th June 2021 10

Getting older, the mores of one’s own country can start to look strange, if not inexplicable. Such was the effect of the case of Mandy Copper, a head teacher, as they are now called, at Wimbish School, Essex. She was attacked eighteen times by one pupil, despite her warnings that the un-identified child’s ‘needs’ were too complex for her small … [Read on]

On the phone to my GP

23rd June 2021 4

I am on the telephone to my 20th patient of the morning (don’t worry I’m used to it). My patient is sure she has a kidney infection. I take a history, prescribe a strong antibiotic and firmly attempt to say goodbye. However, she reveals she has 3 other issues. During the next few minutes I decide to cut things short and … [Read on]

Are Poldark and Downton Abbey dangerous to Europe’s diversity health?

22nd June 2021 4

According to the Telegraph , popular television serials like The Crown and Poldark could be ‘scythed’ from European TV screens because Brussels regards them as a threat to European ‘cultural diversity’. Telegraph readers are, quite naturally, apoplectic. Well, it is a bit rich for the EU to complain about cultural imperialism since they have been busy deconstructing European civilization in … [Read on]

The Maggot in the Liberal Apple

20th June 2021 6

Can we escape the nightmare of egalitarian liberalism? First published in the Summer 2021 edition of The Salisbury Review Few pastimes are more perversely consoling in an age of civilisational collapse than taking refuge in that notable twentieth-century literary tradition, the depiction of dystopian worlds to come. George Orwell’s (1984) and Aldous Huxley’s (Brave New World) are the most celebrated of … [Read on]

G7 Exorcising the People’s’ Choice, Donald Trump.

14th June 2021 9

G7 was really about about exorcising the people’s choice, Donald Trump. With the nasty, low class Donald removed from the public gaze things will get back to normal. The climate change boondoggle can resume, the murderous clerics in Teheran can carry on building their nuclear bombs, and China will expand its network of concentration camps. Oh, and any taxes on … [Read on]

The Modern West. The Peter Pan who never grew up

9th June 2021 4

Since I am currently living with a friend in the Hungarian countryside, and I had to act the part of an undertaker in a comic-horror film being shot near Budapest, I found myself back in Budapest a few nights in early May staying with a hospitable actress and dancer. She had spent most of her life working in stage musicals, … [Read on]

Northern Ireland: Entry point for the EU trojan horse

8th June 2021 6

Having been a Brexiteer since the late 1960s, when Tony Benn, Peter Shore and Enoch Powell were laying down the patriotic case for opposition to entry into an embryonic country called Europe, I’m all too willing to see the dark hand of the Brussels Empire on any wheeze designed to bring about the destabilization and then disintegration of the United … [Read on]
