Beware the Promises of Politicians

People have always been cynical and somewhat dismissive about the promises of politicians – sometimes with good reason.  Such cynicism however creates real problems in a democracy and opens the door to the kind of disillusionment that feeds more extreme forces. But there is one area where politicians in the UK government and the Scottish government (and also the US and Australian governments).  Whenever a … Continue reading Beware the Promises of Politicians

The Lion has Whimpered

A couple of weeks ago the Scottish Government closed their consultation on gender self-identity and the Church of Scotland produced a ‘pastoral guidance’ booklet on the issue of transgender. I reviewed the book here. I ended with the following: “I hope and pray that the faithful ministers who remain in the Kirk will not hand out this propaganda, but will challenge 121 and the bureaucracy … Continue reading The Lion has Whimpered

So much going on in the world this week….here are a few items… Mugabe Falls – Although Mugabe has not yet resigned, it looks as though he is no longer in power.   Zimbabwe should be one of the most prosperous and richest nations in the world.  The fact that it is not so is indicative of decades of corrupt misrule.

Light Engaging Darkness 14  University Special… What is happening to our Universities in the UK and the US is to say the least disturbing.

LED 10 – Far Right in Germany – The EU – World Running out of Sand – Transgender Study banned – Australian SSM Intolerance – Catalonia and Kurdistan – Reality is a Social Constuct – Britons on the Toilet – A Tale of Nixon and Kissinger

If there is a theme to this weeks LED it has to be prophecy – or at least prediction. For example it has been fairly obvious that if mainstream politicians continue to follow the wacky elitist ‘liberal’ policies of their educators and media bosses – then there was going to be a backlash by ordinary people who suffer from these policies.

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
