For a start, from last night’s Ken Craggs’ piece on today’s backbench debate in parliament, the nature of money creation is going to be covered. The reasons you and I will do nothing on this are many: 1. The source is untrusted – it comes from someone you don’t know, Ken Craggs and is brought by someone you’re not over-enamoured of, James Higham. So it’s off to a bad start.…

The central issue in this Breitbart article is not the substance of it, as many a commenter in the thread pointed out. The central issue is how far does a publication refuse opinion contrary to its main thrust and how far does it allow free debate? As a political blogger, I confess it’s one I’ve not yet worked out and that goes for OoL too. There is this point of…

Haiku points to this bit of tosh: As a response to the chocolate shortage, farmers are investing in new strains of cacao. One of these is a breed called CCN51, renowned both because it produces nearly seven times more beans than its traditional Ecuadorian counterpart and because it is resistant to witches’ broom. Scientists, however, still have more work to do when it comes to cultivating CCN51: Its flavors on the…

No one with any vestige of credibility goes near Icke in his writing. Which is wrong because he gets a lot of it right, i.e. corroborated elsewhere – it’s just the weird stuff which kills it for him, thinking he’s God or whatever he was meant to have done. I’ll go into anyone’s writing, even Hitler’s, if it will throw up some snippets, some little facts, not otherwise known. In…
