Time to take a break?

As Christmas comes closer, I doubt anybody wants to read me moaning about the ongoing collapse of the West due to the stupidity, greed, incompetence and venality of our West-loathing rulers.

So, I propose to give it a rest till Wednesday 3 January 2024.

Just before I go, I noticed this short video from the […]

What if they won’t sell us their oil and gas?

Monday/Tuesday blog

I’ve been surprised that our Net-Zero-obsessed rulers don’t seem to have noticed a rather major shift in geopolitics.

For years/decades our grandstanding, virtue-signalling rulers have been pompously and arrogantly telling the main oil- and gas-producing countries that their products are destroying the planet or mankind or whatever and that soon the ‘energy transition’ […]

US mainstream media’s unhinged Trump Derangement Syndrome

weekend blog

First let me say that I’m no fan of Russell Brand. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever watched any of his videos. However, this one came up when I accessed YouTube a couple of days ago. I only watched the first 10 minutes. But it opened my eyes to how totally deranged […]

I’ll start with a story from my boring little life. Many years ago I had a summer job working on a large hydro-electric scheme. The aim was to let water flow down through a several mile tunnel during the day to generate electricity and then pump […]

Can’t they see the damage they’re doing?

Wednesday/Thursday blog

I had an article published on the excellent Daily Sceptic website:

It’s often worth taking a few minutes to read the readers’ comments as most Daily Sceptic readers are clearly a lot more intelligent than the fools and knaves who rule over us.

Bit of a busy week for Dubai’s 30,000+ prostitutes?

Monday/Tuesday blog

I’m sure most readers are eternally grateful that the world’s elites are sacrificing their valuable time to fly to oil-producing Dubai in their private jets to save us all from what the world’s greatest climatologist, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, calls ‘global boiling’. But it’s not only the world’s elites who’ll be at Cop28. […]

How long before we’re a minority in our own country?

The real Irish problem

In a recent blog, I quoted some figures from the Republc of Ireland. The Irish governmnent predicts the Irish population will increase by around 0ne million between 2020 and 2040.

The Irish population is currently around five million. Of these five million, around 80 percent – four million – […]
