Some bits and pieces

It must be love, love, love

Two beautiful love stories from the last couple of weeks:

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a hen in Pakistan’s Punjab province. Mansab Ali, a resident of Hafizabad, some 200km from Lahore, told police that his neighbour Ansar Hussain “abducted” his hen on November […]

Autocracy ⇒ Democracy ⇒ Pathocracy

My thanks to a reader for sending me a definition of a word I had never heard of – Pathocracy

Definition: pathocracy (n). A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people; from Greek pathos, “feeling, pain, suffering”; and kratos, “rule”

Polish thinker Lobaczewski adopted […]

It woz Putin and the Russkies wot done it!

I wasn’t going to write a blog today. But the anti-Russian propaganda spewing out from hapless Theresa May and the British mainstream media is so ludicrous that there’s a need to show it up for the garbage it is.

Let’s try to deal with a couple of May’s and the mainstream media’s ridiculous claims:

Russia […]

Here’s the truth behind the manufactured media outrage against Johnson and Gove

(Tuesday/Wednesday blog)

I’m no fan of bumbling Boris Johnson. Or of backstabbing Michael Gove. But I’ve been outraged over the hypocrisy, lies and media-manufactured outrage over Johnson’s and Gove’s comments about the British/Iranian woman currently locked up in an Iranian prison. So, I thought it worthwhile using today’s blog to give my few readers the […]

Let them kill Christians! Our rulers don’t care!

(Monday blog)

Obama’s Izlumophilia?

I have previously (June 2016) written about how, under Obama, pitifully few of the Syrian ‘refugees’ allowed into the USA were from the two main persecuted groups Christians and Yazidis.

Christians used to make up about 10% of the Syrian population. Yet between the start of the conflict and May 2016, […]

Stupid, more stupid, unbelievably stupid

Stupid

Two days ago I was watching the last few minutes of a TV quiz called Tipping Point. A lady, who must have had some education as she is a former nurse, was asked the following question:

Q: “Which of these political parties could be called ‘left wing’? Is it the Greens, the […]

Greek ruins and the world’s oldest profession

(Friday blog)

I’ve just got back from a week in Greece. I was looking at some Greek ruins – namely the Greek economy:

Though I also had time to look at some ancient monuments:

But how bad are things really in Greece? After all, it’s difficult to find the […]

Oh no! The Warmies are getting hot under the collar again!

(Wednesday/Thursday blog)

We’re gonna get cooked!

Great week for the Warmies. The BBC are claiming that 2017 may be one of the hottest 3 years since records began. And I think there’s a Warmies’ meeting in Fiji. (How nice – I wonder why they never have these meetings in the Arctic or even Greenland? Perhaps […]

Will the BBC’s lies about Trump ever end?

(Monday/Tuesday blog) One of the main headlines on the BBC’s world news and business news at the weekend was “US jobs data disappoints” and “US jobs growth below forecast”. The Trump-loathing BBC’s implication was, of course, that Trump was failing to boost US economic growth.

But at the same time, I got an email from […]

It’s not a fair cop!

(weekend blog) My thanks to a reader for making the following comment in reaction to my blog about how the police seem to be making up laws to crush whatever they classify as ‘hate’ or ‘hostility’ or even ‘dislike’:

But surely, if it hasn’t gone through Parliament and been set down as a law, then […]
