Changing face of British politics – the new enemy

In keeping with the themes of the day – incompetence, designed incompetence, celebration of a great designer/architect, the sea, dangerous places to be and people who send us round the bend, this is an interesting article about Brighton. There are always going to be around the same percentages of people of certain mindsets – blissfully unaware major party tribalists, unhappy left thinking [LibDems and Greens], unhappy sane [now moving towards…

Jessica Valenti on abortion (please, stifle those yawns!): There are certain polite terms that even the most well intentioned, prudent pro-choice people use when they talk about abortion. The most difficult decision. Tragic. Safe, legal and rare. But as state after state makes abortion effectively illegal in the United States – and as the anti-choice movement prepares for a US supreme court fight to end the right entirely – it’s…

If you look at what the CIA does around the world, especially in the Ukraine, if you look at Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious, at NAFTA, at Colin Ross’s expose of the psychiatric old boys network, at the CFR, at the Rotherham coverup, we’re nowhere near the farfetched yet, not even with MK Ultra and already you can see government agencies not acting on behalf of people. And then we…

The case for Catalonian independence

Foreword by JH: The brief of OoL is liberty and you could argue that breaking up a nation is liberty but you could argue that it isn’t. For example, the EU divides England into nine regions it wants to fund separately and therefore control – example is the socialist Common Purpose run Yorkshire Forward and the old South West of England Regional Development Agency from Blair’s time. Catalonia though has a…

They tell you. And tell you, and tell you, and tell you: As I started explaining my new dietary choice to the people in my life who had noticed I wasn’t partaking of my two favourite foods (cheese and more cheese), barely an eyebrow was raised. But when I mentioned that my two and a half-year-old son would be joining me on a vegan diet, it was a different story.…

I haven’t touched the account below in any way – not spelling, not grammar – it’s as it came from my Russian friend. Just thought the wider reading public of OoL might like to see it. … Hi James, you wrote and asked my opinion – here it is - The state workers and deputats of the parlament of the Ukraine are elected by the population.Since there is no authorities…

Stop maligning stay-at-home mothers. Instead, let’s throw some cash at them. Don’t we already? Isn’t there child benefit to consider? Also unemployment benefit, should they not have a husband whose wage is keeping them?? Oh, but you want more, don’t you? You want them to have a wage… For the 2m stay-at-home parents, it might be easy to dismiss their contribution to GDP – after all, some may say, why…

The reason why this is appearing at OoL does not become apparent until near the end. *It’s a strange post.  It started out as a look at Buddy Holly as a singer and here are the original opening words: Really love this clip – the girls behind look like debutantes and are dying to dance to it: At that point, I stumbled on these clips [text continues below them]: Part 2 Part 3…

Middle classes won’t pay inheritance tax, Tories vow Only the “very wealthy” will be forced to pay inheritance tax under plans being drawn up by the Conservatives, David Cameron has signalled. In his clearest indication to date that he will stop anyone who is not a millionaire from paying the levy, the prime minister said that people who did not feel “in any way mega-rich” were being hit. That’s the…

How not to go about achieving change

Richard North is one of those on the correct side of politics in my book – wants smaller government, out of the EU, many other things and so I’m loathe to write against him, despite the way he’s been carrying on. I might have gone to Harrogate with them, I actually agree with a lot of it. Two of his staunch allies, Witterings from Witney and Autonomous Mind I’d like…
