Net neutrality

Years ago, blogger Tom Paine and I were having a spot of lunch and he noted that I write in a quite personalized way on topics. Yes I do because issues are how we see them, translated into blogposts. Depersonalized…

The whole sorry Westminster saga

Best way to put this is via a series of tweets: 1. 1/5 David Cameron assured the British people that the vote would be implemented, there is no ambiguity in this: pic.twitter.com/NLpAcRTgqc — Deplorable James (@JamesHghm) December 14, 2017 2.…

The clever programming of society

There’s nothing wrong with putting a viewpoint strongly in a fair forum but it crosses the line when clandestine tactics are used to push it, including dishonest subterfuge and nobbling the other side. If you attack something quite clearly bad,…

The News

Comments on two pieces of news: The Last Jedi bash Confession time – having seen the stills of the film, there was just something offputting about the characters, their look, plus the natural position on modern films that they’re rubbish…

You can never go back

Great post at Bill Sticker’s: There are sayings that “You can never go home again.” or “You can’t cross the same river twice.” and now ten years after Mrs S and I began our Canadian adventure I find there is…

Bringing politics into sport

An amusing enough article at the Beeb [who wish to teach kids about fake news] but the implications are still interesting: ‘I don’t think I would be allowed’ – Mourinho on Guardiola’s ‘political message’ Guardiola has recently worn a yellow…

Black Friday betrayal

Much talk by our lads and lasses today on it: From the #Fakenews #Guardian more lies – no wonder muppets such as @DavidLammy make such arses of themselves:- pic.twitter.com/6uGe8ZNTo2 — Raedwald (@Raedwald) December 8, 2017 Anyone who thinks we are…

Jerusalem – here we go

‘He’s declaring war on 1.5billion Muslims’: Trump will recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital TODAY despite international fury from the Pope, Britain, Russia, China and Palestinians I say bring it on.

Christina and Mandy

Couldn’t be bothered saying much about it. Amfortas mentions it: From the bottom of a muck heap to the top. Forgive us for we know not what we do. http://www.themercury.com.au/news/world/british-showgirl-at-centre-of-profumo-affair-christine-keeler-dies-aged-75/news-story/d7015efbec672aef136df4f27901af67

Appeaser Theresa

You know, I’m coming around to the idea that anyone within the M25 should not have the vote … or at least anyone at Westminster and environs. “Get DUP onside” – think about that one for a moment. “Get DUP…

Nuclear Pacific

Reality or the truth of a matter often comes down to scale, to percentages. But it also comes down to narrative, journos and the money behind those. Why don’t I immediately embrace this? http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-11-27/the-dome-runit-island-nuclear-test-leaking-due-to-climate-change/9161442 Everything is wrong with it in…

Better get real about age

Yesterday’s post was: http://www.nourishingobscurity.com/2017/11/snuffin-it/ … and I wasn’t too good, couldn’t even go for the usual Sunday jolly and it takes a lot to stop that. At this point, Dr. Chuckles came in with the diagnosis for ‘pensioners’ and this…
