Damning verdict on British schoolchildren

On the issue.  First we need to put aside the issues with the Chinese themselves and that of the Japanese. They certainly have issues of stress, among other things. On the other hand, having been in Russia, I can underscore the comments. The English teachers, of course, hit back, saying that one has to tailor the programme to the student. To a point. One has to take into account those…

Never accept responsibility

On most issues, what any one narrativist thinks and does doesn’t matter for us, it hardly affects us directly and yet the sum total of accumulated woolly thinking across society, in every nook and cranny, in key decision making positions, really does affect us and can border on crime, if not actually be criminal. For example, teachers showing kids porn in school in order to discuss it and work out how to…

A commenter upon another blog I write for jogged my memory, and reminded me of a post I uploaded over a year ago. I believe it bears repeating. It was a direct quote from an essay by Christopher Booker amd his colleague Richard North:-   Taken from a Spectator essay by Christopher Booker Among the millions of words which will be expended over the next four years on the first…

Lies, Damned Lies, and Political Promises.

When I was but eighteen years old, the lies and the deviant statements commenced, and they have continued, without pause or interruption, ever since. The barrage of position statements, government propaganda, newspaper, radio and the slow start of television ‘current affairs’ programmes hammered, or rather attempted to hammer home the  story that Europe would be good for Britain. Good for jobs, good for trade, everything would be rosy. When Edward…

I normally watch the antics of so-called Environmental Activists and Protesters with detachment, and my only real concern is that no-one on their targets is injured by the antics of the Anti’s, as it were; but I wonder if Greenpeace could be billed for the police overtime?

Chris Elliott on the ‘Guardian’s’ lexicon: In The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy wrote: “That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.” That is a view shared by many Guardian readers. Looking at the comments some days, it’s hard to see how the love for the ‘Guardian’ could go any lower! But what, specifically, vexes the CiF commentariat? The budget threw up a different…

This whole drama is ridiculous

So points out Shane Warne and there are four other examples of narrative this morning below that. Narrative 1 Shane Warne joined other men of note [so far no females in the public sphere, who are on the whole narrative-driven, that is feminists]. For those not up to speed, football fans at every AFL club [downunder] have been, for the whole season, booing a provocative aboriginal activist who plays the race card and…

The lion, and the hypocrisy.

Oh, the sheer terror of it all! The black headlines flood onto the pages and the screens, all stating one thing only; ‘How cruel, how terrible, how unfeeling; and on, and on, ad infinitum’. A  cross-section of those headlines read: ‘Global anger reaches Minnesota’, ‘Justice for Cecil’, and  ‘The hunter is hunted’; as well as ‘Dentist who killed Cecil regrets his actions!’ The target of all this wrath? Some monstrously-inhuman…

Those naughty Lordies

Dave is busy stacking the Lords, one wonders if it was because the Lords struck back in late 2014: Commenting, Lord Harrison, Chair of the Committee, said: “This Committee has repeatedly stressed that the EU budget process is at breaking point. The on-off negotiations over recent weeks demonstrate once more that root and branch reform of the process is urgently needed. We want to get to the bottom of the…
