We return to The Great Deception – but before doing so, let us note where things currently are in the great Brexit debate. It appears as though the momentum behind a second referendum has stalled – with its advocates arguing amongst themselves – and the government seeming less and less likely to support it. The EU meanwhile is refusing to budge on the question … Continue reading The Great Deception – Part 12 – The Creation of a ‘European’ Identity.
Saturday Review 1 – Stan and Ollie; Middlemarch; Les Miserables I hope to make this a regular feature – I read a lot of books, listen to many things and watch films, tv etc (when I get the time) – so each week I will try to review/reflect briefly on some of them. This week we begin with an unusual, quirky but rather good film, … Continue reading Saturday Review 1 – Stan and Ollie; Middlemarch; Les Miserables

This is the last Quantum for 2018. I wanted to do a review of the year but as I looked at the most popular blog posts for this year I realised that they covered most of the main issues so I thought I would combine the two. You can listen by clicking on the link below. (there is a fair amount of music in this … Continue reading Quantum 22 – 2018 – End of Year Review
Over Christmas and Boxing Day it was good to have an internet and social media fast (and before I get the comments – yes blog posts continued – they were scheduled from last week!)…Did I miss much? Apparently not – the Brexitmania continued – with Lord Adonis, Lord Foulkes and Alistair Campbell tweeting with all the fervour of religious zealots throughout Christmas. The SNP of … Continue reading Brexitmania and The Great Deception – Part 10 -The First Referendum.
That Hideous Strength – Part 3 – Barbarians Through the Gates – The Destruction of the Family AS we continue our review and summary of Melvin Tinker’s That Hideous Strength: How the West was Lost, this week we come on to chapter 5 where Tinker argues that the purpose of Cultural Marxism is to destroy the family. “Equality is never going to be enough: what is needed … Continue reading That Hideous Strength – Part 3 – Barbarians Through the Gates – The Destruction of the Family
Before we go on to learn from what happened in 1970-1973 (as you will see, the parallels are uncanny) let’s get up to date with what is happening this week. The bottom line is, that as in the early 1970’s, the EU is playing hardball and the UK’s political class are largely caving in and deceiving the British people. Theresa May has (I suspect through … Continue reading The Great Deception 9 – The Politicians Deceit and the Fishermen Betrayed
Well that accelerated pretty quickly – as soon as I feature Melvin Tinkers That Hideous Strength – he gets banned from preaching at the CU carol service in Derby (see this weeks Quantum)! Not that I am claiming direct correlation – but it will be interesting to see what happens after our second look at the book! Before we do that have a look at … Continue reading That Hideous Strength – Part 2 – The Gender Agenda
The Christian book world seems to be filling with gay Christian memoirs. First there was the disappointing and depressing Vicky Beeching’s ‘Undivided’. This was followed by Jackie Perry’s well written and refreshingly biblical Gay Girl, Good God . Then we went downhill again with Jayne Ozanne’s Just Love – Now we come to David Bennet’s newly released book, War of Loves. The self-description summarises it well: David Bennett … Continue reading A War of Loves -David Bennett
