The Irish Referendum – the Repercussions

When it became clear that the death warrant for hundreds of thousands of Irish babies was about to be signed, it broke my heart.  When I saw the grotesque pictures of people dancing in the streets in celebration it was like a scene out of Dante’s Inferno. My article yesterday Ireland Regresses; Sunday, Bloody Sunday  has been widely circulated and got the predictable response – although with … Continue reading The Irish Referendum – the Repercussions

The Man Who Could Make Me Vote Tory

I am not a natural Tory voter.  In my younger political years it was a truism amongst those of us who were involved in student politics that ‘the Tories’ were the enemy.  Of course that is a juvenile and immature form of politics which requires a group to hate and someone to blame.  Most of us mature out of it.  Now that I’m all growed … Continue reading The Man Who Could Make Me Vote Tory

Light Engaging Darkness – 6 Sometimes I am writing this I feel as though I am writing a comic satire.  It must be so hard for satirists in the modern Western world because the ‘reality’ is so surreal that it is beyond satire.  Anyway here are a few gems from this past week. 1) Back to Uni – It’s the time of year when students … Continue reading LED 6 – Back to Uni – Demolishing Statues – Natural Disasters – Robert E Lee – The Duke of Sutherland – Houston – Poland – Trudeau and Abortion – Australia and SSM – Macron – Tower Hamlets Adoption Madness…

It is little wonder that the Church in Scotland is dying if these are its spokespeople. Ichabod. This is the second of two letters written in defence of abortion (contrary to … Continue reading Abortion, the Church of Scotland and the Media

The Real ‘Dirty Deal’ – Abortion, Northern Ireland, the BMA, Killing white babies and Sacking the Disability Commissioner

Wheeling and Dealing Politics is all about deals and compromises – especially if you have a minority government, like the current UK situation. In such circumstances in order for a government to get their programme through there has been a great deal of wheeling and dealing. The Democratic Unionist Party are masters at this and as a result they have got the people of Northern … Continue reading The Real ‘Dirty Deal’ – Abortion, Northern Ireland, the BMA, Killing white babies and Sacking the Disability Commissioner
