The New British Union

Back in 1931 the “New Party had been defeated in the election that year which gave rise in 1932 to the British Union of Fascists and National Socialists, which was then renamed in 1937 as the “British Union”. The Battle of Cable Street in the East End of London in 1936 was a clash between […]

Another Week In Trumpland

So………let’s see what’s happening in the world of Trump…. 1. He has been crying as his “Muslim Ban” has been lifted by the courts….that hasn’t given him much to smile about. In fact, as usual, you can see the fallout from that by looking at his Twitter account 10 minutes after the decision was made. […]

Haters React To Attack in The Louvre

As you will no doubt have heard, there was an incident at the Louvre today which involved a man attacking a soldier with a knife, with the press now reporting he shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he did it. As usual, this has brought morons out in force over various social media platforms. As you can […]

On The Road To Führerprinzip

  On this day in 1933, the New York Times ran the above on their front page telling the story about a little man who was born in Austria, who became Chancellor of Germany. Little did anyone know at that point that the centrists who held the balance of power would shortly become the minority and […]

Supporting One Another

  Today I listened to this from the New York governor in response to Trump and his “immigration ban” Now, I know people are saying that it’s nothing to do with religion and it’s only temporary (and many other things which they use to pardon Trump and his actions). Fact of the matter is, his […]

Trump Discriminates Against Judge

Trump is talking about a judge….an AMERICAN judge, who is obviously in their position as they are competent to do the job. It’s not like you just happen to walk into being a judge because you fancy giving it a go during a gap year or something. During his interview, he gets asked time and […]

Government Accountable To People

Looks like the bleachers are full of…..one person it seems. Hmmmmmmmmm. The inauguration was quite an eye opener. The only time I’d seen protests on around the same scale was when Bush Jr had his inauguration- If one this is very clear, the US voting system needs to be addressed so that you don’t get […]

Banning Muslims On Holocaust day

I found it incredible that on a day intended to think about the holocaust, that Trump didn’t know his own history enough to see that not only was his anti-immigration Executive Order a bad thing to do, but to do it 2 days before Holocaust Memorial Day was plain thoughtless. Now, for those of you […]

Trump And The Environment

The orange man strikes again, and fails to acknowledge facts. I’m a geologist by qualification, spent a great many years looking at rocks, fossils and more. Part of my study was looking at old environments and changes within it. Now, not wanting to go into postgraduate rants on Milankovitch cycles, greenhouse effects and suchlike, which […]
