So thence to the wiki ... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_views_of_H._G._Wells A re-animating monster: every degradation of the 20th century visited, and with each atrocious failure a turn to the next: race socialism, class socialism, the psychotically arrogant authoritarian with a psychopathic lack of empathy, not one mention of Liberty, his spinning needle finally coming...

Perhaps, just perhaps, 'The Donald' has succeeded in providing America, in general, and future Presidents, in particular, with an invaluable lesson. From now on, Presidents will know with absolute certainty that there are limits to their power. Delusions of grandeur, of course, will continue because they are all part of the toxic atmosphere of presidential politics in the USA but... Continue reading

I remain as addicted to books as I have been for some seventy years but, alas and alack, my actual reading of them has fallen away - bit like my sex life, really! Consequently the pile of 'waiting to be read' books is actually blocking out the light round my armchair! This old-age lark really is quite insidious as the... Continue reading

Some good news - for a change: Courtesy of The Mail I bring you these glad tidings: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will never return to social media after claiming to have dealt with an 'almost unsurvivable' amount of abuse, a source has claimed.

I refer, of course, to Mr. Ambrose Evans-Pritchard and his article today in The Daily Telegraph. It is summarised in his opening two paragraphs: The Putsch has failed. The US military has refused to acquiesce. It has become impossible for Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act or resort to force in a final throw of the dice. The Pentagon... Continue reading

I have hoped, in fact I nearly prayed, that Donald Chump Trump would never, ever, have to face truly serious pressure exerted on the very foundations of the United States. I hoped that he would 'stumble-bum' his way through the choppy waters of American politics providing us all with a chuckle or three as he did so and then simply... Continue reading

It seems to have degenerated like a Napoleonic battle, where at dawn there are shoulder to shoulder formations, all smart and lively, and by dusk it's like a bar room brawl spread all over a couple of miles of countryside!

WW2 total deaths over 6 years, 450,000 ... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_casualties_of_war#1900_to_1945 So 450,000 / 6 = 75,000 dead in one year.

Before you dismiss my title as wishful thinking - think about it! There are hard times - no, seriously hard times! - approaching and the structure is not sound. There are two main fault lines running through the structure, the north/south one which divides the 'Scandies' and the 'Meds', and the east/west one which divides the impoverished eastern bloc from...

So, "Off we go again, happy as can be; all good friends and jolly good company"! - who snorted? I don't quite know why I am so cheerful?

The "R.I.H." in my title stands for 'Rest In Hell'! And I sincerely hope - alas, I don't 'do' praying! - that you share your space there with the late, and equally vile and treacherous, Kim Philby.

At last, at last, just as I was worrying that I might die before my country regained its independence, we managed to break free! For me, it truly is the very best Xmas gift I could wish for!

So Brexit Blighty has got its new names from the world's media: "Plague Island", and "The Dirty Man of Europe".

It helps that the news is so depressingly repetitive that I don't really read or watch it anymore.

Well done, Boris, you have led us to the very edge of true independence from the EU. All you have to do now is step off the edge and pray the 'chute opens!
