Independence supporters should vote for Ruth Davidson

It’s odd to think that in a little more than three months we might have been arriving at Scottish Independence Day.  It doesn’t seem that long ago since September 18th 2014. I wonder if we would have been ready. Of course, countries can become independent more or less instantly. Look …

Christian persecution and hope

I spend 75% of my time, working in Erbil, in Kurdistan.  When I am there I worship at Mar Elia Catholic Church in the Christian area, called Ainkawa.   The story related here http://tinyurl.com/qb257rn tells part of the story of what is happening. Just before these refugees departed Erbil, I attended …

The Mogg owns David Dimbleby over Eton quip

Jacob Rees-Mogg, whilst answering a question on Heathrow’s 3rd Runway, turned a quip from David Dimbleby straight back at him, in hilarious fashion. In fact, I’d go as far as saying The Mogg stole the show on BBC Question Time tonight, if the plaudits on Social Media were anything to …

Happy Christmas or Happy Holiday?

A trend is increasingly creeping into our language and practise, where out of heightened perceived sensitivity to people of other faiths (or none), people now say Happy Holidays when they really mean Happy Christmas. I have enjoyed the pleasure of working and living among Muslims and when the feast of …

Sorting the sheep from the goats

Until relatively recently most Christians in Europe thought that their beliefs could be imposed on others. There were religious wars between Catholics and Protestants in order to do this. At times the law said I had to practice Christianity in this way, at times it said I had to practice …

Banning Trump is Stupid

I hesitate to put a number to it, since it is increasing so rapidly, but more than 400,000 people, in the UK, have petitioned the UK government to ban GOP hopeful Donald Trump, from visiting the UK. The cause is said to be his statements that America should ban all …

Householders deserve the right – and the means – to defend themselves

When a burglar enters a property, a “home invasion” to borrow the rather apt American terminology, the intruder does far more than simply cross a threshold uninvited. The victim, excluding any financial and sentimental losses incurred, is often left with a heavy psychological weight, the sense of safety and security …

Jo Coburn, on BBC Sunday Politics London, interviewed Owen Smith, Labour’s Shadow Work & Pensions Minister. Proving herself yet again to be amongst the top UK interviewers at present, Jo proceeded to seriously question Owen Smith on a number of topics, including: Labour’s economic credibility Oldham West by-election result Welfare …

Frack, baby frack!

I have written  before about Fracking and pointed people to the demolition of the lies and stunts,  performed by Josh Fox in his Gasland movie, in the .documentary Fracknation.  Some might say that it is unfair to use facts to demolish fantasy but as a grown-up…. Anyway, today, the UK …

Letters to ISIS from a confused UK Socialist

Having taken on board the pacifistic attitude displayed and advice given by Jeremy Corbyn, current leader of the Trotsky Labour Party, I’ve been embarking on a peaceful route towards improving Western relations with ISIS. I may not agree with Jeremy regarding current UK Foreign Policy with regards to Syria and …

ISIS won’t check the SNP’s voting record

If you could replay May and June 1940, I think, nine times out of ten Britain would emerge defeated. If our armies had been destroyed at Dunkirk, we would have surrendered. It took an unlikely combination of German incompetence and something approaching a miracle that this did not occur. The …

Labour is Being Poisoned by the Far Left’s Arrogance

It has ceased to be amusing. In the seemingly endless joke, for which the Labour Party performs the roles of both protagonist and antagonist, the humour has dissipated and the desire to ‘see the funny side’ grown stale. Where there were once mirth-filled jabs about Trots and Stalinists, and jocular …

There are no safe spaces now

When did the SNP last support a war? Was it in 1314 or was it in 1745? They certainly didn’t support “England’s war” in 1939, nor as far as I recall have they supported any war since. Nicola Sturgeon might have pretended that she would listen to the arguments made …
