I, Drone (Special Cannabis Edition)

May 4, 2013

Guest post by Nannying Tyrants (or rather a re-post* of one of his which has been blocked from viewing in the UK) If the name Daniel Clayton doesn’t ring any tobacco control industry bells, do not be concerned.  In comparison to the Root of All Evil, The Dreadful, Anna Gilmore, Stanton Glantz, or other well-known tobacco […]

All politicians are in the pocket of someone else

April 25, 2013

The left do go on about the right being influenced and in the pocket of big business, but when it is pointed out the left are being influenced and in the pocket of unions they say “no way”. This article shows how that argument is a lie. All politicians are in the pocket of someone […]

fleet street fox, often sarcastic, sometimes wrong

April 17, 2013

It’s pretty obvious that Fleet Street Fox is not a fan of Margaret Thatcher, especially as she writes in The Mirror. Now she really digs into the funeral for Margaret Thatcher in this article. But though she can be sarcastic, she can also be wrong. So wrong, that I am driven to put finger to […]

Religious schools

April 8, 2013

Prompted by an article at Subrosa’s I’ve written down my thoughts about religious schools. Subrosa’s article was about Muslims wanting to setup their own schools, just like Catholics have. But the Muslim schools always seem to fail OFSTED inspections. Something usually to do with not mixing with the rest of society. Unlike Catholic and other […]

Richard Murphy’s magic money tree

April 3, 2013

Richard J Murphy (@RichardJMurphy) has attempted to use the left’s Magic Money Tree against the right – and fails as he gives his opinion about the latest government changes as reported in the Guardian. He says.. First, in an economy where there are 2.5 million unemployed and many, many more under-employed because of a lack […]

Daily Mail’s view of Raspberry Pi

April 3, 2013

I think the Daily Mail’s picture editors could do with some training about the technology that exists around them, and which they probably use every day. They do reasonably well describing the various features of the Raspberry Pi, except for one point. The Linux operating system is not compatible with other operating systems. The whole […]

Immigrants should learn the host language

April 2, 2013

It’s not racist to require immigrants to speak the same language as their host country. In fact it’s a prerequisite of being able to successfully live and work in the host country. So this is not an anti-immigration rant. In fact I am in favour of immigration. For one thing is allows emigration and for another it brings in […]

David Milliband & Sunderland’s coach Paolo Di Canio

April 1, 2013

So David Milliband has resigned from being a non-executive director of Sunderland AFC. What is surprising about that is not that he resigned, but that he was a non-executive director of Sunderland AFC in the first place. How many people knew that? Even among Sunderland supporters it was probably a low number who knew that. […]

Immigrants do not pay our pensions

March 26, 2013

In answer to Left Foot Forward’s attempt at saying that migrants pay for our pensions because they pay tax… You attempt to say that previous Labour policy was correct and the right thing to do. You do so by saying that the migrants are beneficial in economic terms. You fail on that point. Only economic migrants […]

iERA

March 14, 2013

University College London has had to ban the extremist Islamic group iERA for attempting to segregate men and women during a debate they had organised in one the college’s rooms. I suspect that University College London had no problems with iERA holding the meeting on their premises. They probably didn’t care that iERA are a […]
