Re: Full circle....??

I think it is more the case that a leader such as Trump has to have an enemy (within as well as without but without in the case of China) to rail against and engender a patriotic as well as partisan fervour against. China's big mistake in his eyes was not to buckle under his standard extorting nego...

Re: Another Con Trick

Looking at the original phone video, the car does not have tinted windows or, if it does, it is very minimal. In other words, yet another lie from desperate bigots.

Sometimes I get the idea Trump is merely repeating, by rote and limited understanding, what his advisors have said to him and they use language that they hope is simple enough for him to understand.

Re: PC and the witch hunt explained.

There has recently been a push to get women scientists recognised and the injustice that was dealt them overturned. The woman scientist who did all the work while her male 'superior' got the recognition and rewards is a recurrent theme. Perhaps what the scientist Scruton mentions is women have no p...

It is quite self-educational to have a genetic analysis done. Mrs KE discovered she had a small but significant helping of Nigerian-originated genes. You wouldn't notice from looking at her! I imagine it is something to do with the fact that her family hail, in recent centuries at least, from S Ess...

Isn't the point not that we are a bunch of mongrels but that it doesn't matter? We are what we are and that cannot be denied with any sense.

The Sound Of Silence

I watched a bit of the football on BBC last night and what a weird experience it was. The BBC are using canned crowd sounds to create an 'atmosphere', supposedly, but the effect is to create a dissonance for the viewer where empty stands are apparently making a lot of noise. Most peculiar! But full...

Re: Towering Question

From what I can find out online, the cranes do not have a chemical toilet and the operators use whatever receptacles come to hand for urine and they train themselves to be constipated while working.
But no reason why there has to be a cabin up in the air rather than on the ground.

The Anglo-Saxons were invaders, like the Romans and Vikings. Before them were the Celts and other groups. Many years ago there was a series on C4 putting forward the writer's theory that the Celts originated in India and migrated west, overland (IIRC) to the Mediterranean and then along the coast t...

I have just listened to all that video and, having scrubbed my brain, have not revised my opinion of Scruton. The first two thirds is just the whimpering of a thwarted bigot.

I think Starmer has made a big mistake in appearing to equate anti-Semitism with anti-Israel. The former is taboo the latter acceptable as long as by Israel, Israeli government is meant which in the context of what Maxine Peake said, it clearly was. If this difference is not accepted, Israel become...

Like most cities, I imagine, Exter has a fair few tower cranes about at the moment. Which got me thinking... Why do tower cranes seem to be always controlled from a little box up in the air? Surely the technology exists for them to be adequately controlled from the ground by remote control and hi-r...
