Vehicularphobia. Now it feels like Christmas

Ah, Christmas.  Nothing says peace & goodwill to all men (and women, and other) like concrete barriers, metal detectors and police with fully automatic machine guns. It seems people have no problems with strong, secure borders, protected by walls and armed police.  But only round Christmas markets … and bridges, and pretty much any public […]

Why No Christian Should Vote for Labour or the (il)Liberal (anti)Democrats.

Just as the Chief Rabbi has strongly cautioned the Jewish community against voting for a Labour party lead by someone with, shall we say, “anti-semitic sympathies”  (as true socialists have a proclivity to be), so this letter clearly lays out why the Bishops should warn every disciple of Christ against voting for the unbridled wickedness proposed […]

This is Why Leftists Use Insults & Injury

Anyone who has spent any time online trying to have reasoned or reasonable discussions with “progressive” “liberal” left-wingers soon realises that they really only have 2 weapons in their arsenal : Name calling.

Maybe I’m just […]

Jesus, friend of racist bigots.

Yesterday the scripture reading in the service was of The Good Samaritan – a parable so overly-familiar that its power and shock are somewhat lost. Here is my take on it, originally posted 2 years ago but even more pertinent now than ever… Recently I was involved in a version of “The Moral Maze” – […]

The demand for bigots exceeds the supply

The promotion of the grievance industry has got to have been one of the most pernicious, socially divisive movements of my lifetime. The ever expanding snare of “hate” legislation has had exactly the opposite effect of the one intended, but precisely the effect that so many of us predicted. Rather than bringing about tolerance & […]

A Party Political Broadcast on Behalf of Me

1) Vote. Use it wisely. You may have voted a certain way all your life. You may really like your local candidate and they may have done many admirable things in the past. However, we are at a fulcrum in our democracy. As the old adage goes, “If nothing changes, nothing changes“. And as Einstein […]
