South Africa’s glorious post-apartheid success

weekend/Monday blog

It’s a jolly life in South Africa’s parliament

We’re all encouraged to save for our retirement. But few people seem to have done it better than South African politicians.

Most websites report that South Africa’s former president, Jacob Zuma, managed to save over $20m during his nine years (2009-2018) leading the country on […]

So many others do it better

weekend blog

Several times, I have suggested that there is probably no point continuing with this blog because so many other people now do what I do but do it so much better.

The two websites I recommend are The Daily Sceptic and Conservative Woman. As they use a variety of writers, they can provide […]

Why our healthcare regulator no longer regulates

Thursday/Friday blog

Hopefully you all know what the MHRA is – the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency is an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care in the United Kingdom which is responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work and are acceptably […]

The Germans really have got their lederhosen in a twist

Tuesday/Wednesday blog

They’re not ‘abandoned’, they’re just stupid

Just before I write my blog, I thought I might not be the only person who is getting utterly fed up with people going to the world’s most violent, dangerous hell-holes and then bleating that they’ve been ‘abandoned by the British government’ when they inevitably get into […]

Our useless government has just written Britain’s suicide note

Sunday/Monday blog

Apparently there was some kind of public consultation (in 2020 or 2021, I think) about ending the sale of petrol, diesel and hybrid cars in Britain. And apparently the consultation miraculously concluded that we were all enthusiastic about this great planet-saving idea.

I give a link at the end of this blog to […]

The tricks lying climate catastrophists use

Friday/weekend blog

Wrong information = wrong decisions

I imagine it’s obvious to my readers, but not to any of our useless politicians that, if you get the wrong information, then you’ll most likely make the wrong decisions. This is why lying climate catastrophists use a wide variety of tricks to fool us into believing their […]

Our useless, woke NHS is drowning in our money

Wednesday/Thursday blog

Why does nobody care about facts anymore?

If you watch the news, you’ll have seen some (IMHO) dreadful woman – head of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), I think – who sounds to a fool like me to be a bit like a female version of the Reverend Ian Paisley – ranting […]

See an ‘activist’? Look for the narcissist

Monday/Tuesday blog

I don’t understand

In spite of having worked in almost 100 organisations in 15 countries and in spite of having written more than 10 published books, I admit I don’t understand. I don’t understand why our rulers and so many self-styled ‘activists’ are so intent on impoverishing us making our lives more miserable, […]

There are no poor countries – just corrupt ones

weekend blog

We’re constantly being hectored about how we must give billions and trillions to help the world’s poor. And we now have a new twist on this story – because developed countries emit the most CO2, we apparently now need to pay so-called ‘climate reparations’ to the world’s poorest countries to help them cope […]

Maybe we’re the donkeys?

Thursday/ Friday blog

Two parts to this blog.

Part 1: Donkeys seem to be lucrative for some people

If you watch daytime TV, you’ve probably seen loads of ads asking for your money to save mistreated donkeys. Typically the ad will be in three parts:

we’ll be shown a donkey suffering awful mistreatment we’ll then […]
