Here are some guidelines that they have just issued. There is so much that one could say about this – some of which is incorporated in this article in The Daily Mail. The Care Inspectorate have become a primary means … Continue reading Now They’re Coming for the Nurseries!

Can we use economics to preach the Gospel? Can the Bible be applied to economics….as someone who is not an economist or an expert – here is an attempt I made at FOCL in 2013 to answer those questions… (and not a mention of Brexit!)…includes an early mention of the Christianity (or not!) of Donald Trump! This reminded me of a popular poster that Al … Continue reading Persuasive Economics

Last week the Scottish government passed an act which will ensure that LGBTI ‘inclusive’ education will be taught in every school and in every subject. This is something that was rejected by that same government a couple of years ago – but now apparently every politician thinks it is a good thing. This is because, with the exception of a handful like Patrick Harvie – … Continue reading The Dark Side of Transgender Ideology

This is just not true and I feel I should sue you for hate crime. I am in fact 36 with a full head of hair and I would like to identify as Chinese. I know … Continue reading The Real Rip Van Winkle – A Self-Identity too far?

Note the police response from Chief Superintendent John McKenzie: “It would be inappropriate to comment on a matter of personal correspondence. Police Scotland welcomes correspondence and communication with members of the public.” It’s hard to believe both the inanity and the brass neck of that comment. First of all this is not … Continue reading HateGate – The Police Respond
The politicisation of the police is something that we should all be worried about. It is clear yesterdays article , The Political Police and the Slide to an Authoritarian State, that there are some groups and political causes that are being promoted and favoured by the police – they are encouraging these groups to report hate crimes, and dissuading others from doing so. The only … Continue reading The Political Police (part 2) and a Brilliant Letter
