The Noble Liar – The Influence of the BBC and the Meritocracy

The Noble Liar  by Robin Aitken is my book of the year, so far, and I doubt whether any book will overtake it.  It is a stunning insight from a former BBC journalist and executive – who has 25 years experience of the organisation.  If you want to understand what is going on in our culture, The Noble Liar, is essential reading. The book is subtitled – … Continue reading The Noble Liar – The Influence of the BBC and the Meritocracy

Scotland’s Chief Mama

  Last Sunday on Mothers Day – this tweet was posted – and retweeted by politicians and others. Compassionate Although many people have a knee jerk reaction to the First Minister and her photo-ops (supporters love everything she does; detractors, to use an old Scots phrase, find that such things ‘gie us the boke’!). It’s better to try to avoid such reactions and take a … Continue reading Scotland’s Chief Mama

Letter to the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cambridge – re Jordan Peterson

Dear Vice Chancellor, I am writing to you in regard to your letter explaining why Cambridge University withdrew its invitation of a fellowship to Jordan Peterson.  Many thanks for setting out your thinking so clearly.

Suffer the Striking Children – A Tale of Activism, Indoctrination and Mob Rule

Many moons ago I led a school strike.   The cause was just – I thought – we were protesting against the raising of the school-leaving age to 16!  I remember leading all 600 pupils in a walk out in front of the school.  As the headteacher, Mr Smith, approached me, I noticed that the pupils behind me and my friend had gone strangely quiet.  “What … Continue reading Suffer the Striking Children – A Tale of Activism, Indoctrination and Mob Rule
