Large parts of England are about to become off-limits for tens of thousands of poorer families because of the planned cut in the annual benefit cap, David Cameron is being warned by housing experts. In the same way that Bentleys and yachts are ‘off limits’ to me, I suppose? Ministers argue that the policy – described as a “matter of fairness” by the Chancellor, George Osborne, and the Work and…

Is it because he was poor? Is it because tiny Reggie Blacklin was born into a poor family that his brutal death this week has already passed into distant news? What..? What on earth does his parent’s annual income have to do with anything? Soon only his mother and those closest to him will remember his blue eyes, his baby smell and the lips still too young to have even…

The day which shamed America

[Pic courtesy Linda Suhler, Ph.D. ‏@LindaSuhler, who writes: “Get ready, ’cause the Left is on a roll & who will stop them?”] The pendulum of interest swings first to British and EU affairs, then to the States, back and forth. Once again, it has swung America’s way. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital…

and they will come; except in Baltimore

I note that a contributor on another blog on which I write delivered a eulogy to the life of freedom in the America he sees today. If that is what he sees, and believes, good luck to him! However, just beneath the surface, there are roiling tensions from the huge and ever-widening gap between Black and White Americans today. As many know I hold sporting endeavours with supreme disinterest; but…

Ask the right questions

Something Harry J sent, involving a flag. Perfect example of what was written yesterday. The source might be iffy, I’ve seen debunkings of Makow and statements about his agenda and dot joining, and yet he raises questions others don’t raise, questions which need to be considered. It’s all very well being the respectable bourgeois gentleman or even engineer but if you  won’t ask the right questions, any scientist can tell…

Hypocrisy At ‘The Guardian’..? Well, I Never!

Marina Hyde on how awful we are to footballers: … in many quarters, outrage ensues. If it’s not Grealish, it’s Jack Wilshere having a fag in a pool in Vegas and I imagine it’ll be only days before Raheem Sterling lets himself, the headmaster and the whole school down. They’re “the type” aren’t they? The Victorian division between the deserving and the undeserving poor has been updated to give us…

Provocation

Following on from yesterday’s post on Within our Lifetime [?], a constant theme I’ve blogged on is that it is unnecessary to be a soothsayer – one only needs to have read widely.  All the facts you need are in the minutiae. For example, this is an interesting exercise: #  Now if you’re a moderately well-read person, you know who Saul Alinsky is. You know that he wrote the book…

Give the f@**ckers power, and they will f#@cking use it!.

Writing, as I do, as an elderly and old-fashioned Englishman; I am often puzzled by the use, by politicians, of the oldest trick in the political armoury: along with its bland acceptance by the 57-million strong herd of mute sheep which is the British voting population. The politicians write, discuss, amend and then vote into Law proposals to combat a certain problem; and then profess complete surprise and dismay when…

Within our lifetime?

[There is a] United States military training exercise, scheduled to take place in multiple US states from July 15 to September 15, 2015. Their announcements raised concern referred to by The New York Times as “travers[ing] the outer edges of political paranoia.” People’s reactions to events are the critical factor, of course, in how the PTB act next time. Those reactions are watched, not unlike by Dr. Mengele,  by those…

“It is not about condoning the activity…”

Well, maybe it should be, Ethel: Ethel Quayle, project leader and senior lecturer in clinical psychology at the University of Edinburgh, said the group’s findings have been turned into practical advice. “It is not about condoning the activity, rather it is about providing more practical advice about being able to talk about this and manage issues when they come along,” she said. “It is interesting that the majority of young…
