A number of times I have used the phrase ‘cultural Marxism’. After my piece on why we should not celebrate the birth of Karl Marx went viral I was asked what this phrase means? It is actually very important and helps explain some quite extraordinary goings on in British (and indeed American and European politics). Working Class Tories and Chardonnay Socialists This week a poll … Continue reading The Key to Understanding Contemporary Western Society (and whats happening in UK politics today)
Last week marked the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, born on the 5th of May 1818. It was an event marked in a positive way by amongst others, the Economist, the Financial Times, the New York Times (whose headline read ‘Happy Birthday Karl Marx, you were right’), and the Guardian columnist Owen Jones who tweeted; ‘Happy 200th birthday Karl Marx’. The Chinese sponsored a new statue of Marx … Continue reading Should Christians Celebrate the Birthday of Karl Marx?
Those who do not know their history are condemned to repeat it There is a pattern in our society that is being repeated over and over again. I have witnessed it for over 30 years and there is no sign of it ending. What happens is that the liberal elites who dominate our media, politics, church and academia tell us that their latest cause celebre … Continue reading Revealed – The Next Step on the Slippery Slope
We are continuing to love being in Australia – and learning so much in so many ways….In some ways it is very similar to the UK, in other ways it is quite unique. Liberal Progressive Indoctrination. Liberal Progressives are attempting their indoctrination here.

(This article was first published on the Christian Today website) Have you ever noticed how anyone who dies is always a saint, especially when they are one of the idols of our society? They may have lived an immoral, selfish life but when they die they are everyone’s friend and hero, The angels in heaven are rejoicing at the sheer privilege of having such a … Continue reading Was Billy Graham a homophobic, Christ denying, antisemitic and bigoted failed evangelist on the wrong side of history?
I went to see The Darkest Hour on a grey January Dundee afternoon and it had a profound impact. In fact it did the impossible – got me to change my mind about a couple of things on which I had had very strong opinions! But first the film itself. The star of course is Gary Oldman as Churchill it is impossible to describe … Continue reading The Darkest Hour – A Film that Changed my Mind
This article first appeared on Christian Today Like my colleague Joseph Hartropp, I love the Netflix drama The Crown. It’s big budget, beautifully produced and the dialogue and plot are West Wing sharp. None more so than in episode six of season two, which features the relationship between the young Queen Elizabeth and the American evangelist Billy Graham, on his first visit to the UK in 1954. It was … Continue reading The Queen and Billy Graham
Robert Harris is quite simply a brilliant writer. He combines the ability to tell a good yarn with fine writing and an eye for historical detail. I first read his Cicero trilogy – (which I will review later) – but it is his latest book, Munich that we look at here. (Published by Penguin – 2017). This is a novel woven round the story … Continue reading Munich – Novel of the Year – Robert Harris

I am currently with Annabel in Wittenberg at a conference organised by the World Reformed Fellowship entitled ” The Gospel Impact of the Reformation” – Relevance for Continuing Reformation. I have been taking notes and thought it might be profitable to share some of the experience and teaching. We arrived too late to hear Dr Billy Kristanto (Indonesia), Dr Rob Norris (USA) and Dr Michael … Continue reading The Gospel Impact of the Reformation – #wrf500
