Pfizer boss sells lorry-loads of shares. What could that mean?

(Thursday/Friday blog)

The mainstream media do NOT decide who the next US president will be

First I would recommend readers go to Wednesday’s blog and click on the headline. That will take you to ‘readers’ comments’. In the ‘readers’ comments’ there’s an excellent explanation of how the US presidential system works. This points out that […]

Some people can only destroy. They have nothing to contribute to mankind

(Wednesday blog)

I’d like to follow on from yesterday’s blog in which I featured a Lebanese journalist daring to tell Palestinians they are “idiots” for continuing their war against Israel when they could be living in peace.

So here’s a short story in pictures in today’s blog.

Here’s the Yasser Arafat International airport in Gaza […]

Heatwave – I blame our useless government

Party time in Beirut?

Firstly it might be worth mentioning that the next few months are really going to be party party party in Lebanon’s capital Beirut:

Of course, ordinary people won’t be partying too much. Almost 200 are dead and about 300,000 may have had their homes damaged:

Africa’s corrupt, thieving murderers ‘take the urine’ – yet again

(Thursday blog)

Great news for Zimbabwe’s farmers (not!)

Here’s a heart-warming story you might have missed last week.

Last Wednesday Zimbabwe’s government signed an agreement supposedly worth $3.5 billion to compensate white farmers who were evicted from their land during a controversial and often violent land redistribution program in the early […]

“WaterAid” or “Water Rip-off”?

(Monday/Tuesday blog)

Why are you giving your money to corrupt UN bureaucrats?

In my previous blog, I tried to convince readers that they should never give any of their money to UNICEF.

UNICEF is an agency of the United Nations (UN) and the UN is probably the most corrupt, self-serving organisation in the world. You […]

Don’t waste your money on UNICEF. It goes to greedy bureaucrats, not starving children!

An almost Covid-19-free blog.

Don’t waste your money on UNICEF

Probably you’ve seen a flood of ads on your TV for UNICEF. The Chinese Covid-19 plague has given UNICEF (and loads of other supposed ‘charities) a new excuse to extract money from us.

On the Charity Commission website UNICEF UK claims:

UNICEF IS […]

Yippee! We can now stop all foreign aid and save £13bn a year

(Wednesday/ Thursday blog)

I’ve got some great news. There are no poor countries in the world. There are no countries which do not have sufficient natural resources and agricultural land to feed and house their people and to build schools, universities, hospitals, power plants, roads and all the other stuff a country needs to give […]

Developed, developing and disintegrating countries

(Friday/weekend blog)

I haven’t had the time or sufficient brain power to fully think through this weekend’s blog. But I’ll start it anyway and see how things go.

How can you solve a problem you won’t admit you have?

The basic premise of this weekend’s blog is that you cannot solve a problem if you […]

There isn’t a word in English strong enough to describe the plundering of Africa

(Wednesday/ Thursday blog)

In Monday’s blog, I mentioned that Isabel dos Santos, the daughter of Angola’s president, is the owner of a rather attractive £13m property in London. But £13m is mere small change for Isabel dos Santos who has mysteriously amassed an estimated $2.3 billion fortune by the still young age of 47 in […]

Why Africa will always be just a “Continent of No Hope” – an “Empire of Dust”

(Monday blog)

Continent of No Hope?

Using simple arithmetic, I worked out how many more Africans are born every minute. Assuming that the population of Africa increases by around 50 million a year, this works out at around 100 more Africans every minute, 6,000 more Africans every hour, 144,000 more Africans every day and, of […]
