Why has the British government subcontracted its immigration services to the Mafia ?

29th August 2022 12

P&O Ferries and Brittany Ferries must be sweating over the success of the budget cross-Channel services being offered to customers looking to come over to Britain. I say ‘budget’, but one does not get much for one’s massive expenditure outlay: a rubber dingy that has not undergone any Health and Safety supervision and an old life-jacket. Nonetheless, the great advantages … [Read on]

No end to the Slavery ?

I was walking along the Thames embankment one sunny summer day some years ago, with, unusually for me, hardly a care in the world. I was overflowing with goodwill towards everybody. A man was coming towards me along that cheerful river bank and I decided to wish him a very good morning – not perhaps what one normally does when … [Read on]

“Examining 9/11 as an embodied event and reading the Twin Towers through affect theory in an ecocritical frame.”

Remainer Refuseniks are still not prepared to emerge from the jungle over six years since the Referendum.

He probably fancied a change of location having spent 29 years in the Philippine rainforest.  I’m sure Remainiac last-ditchers will … [Read on]

The Return of the British Rail Sandwich. Labour’s Nationalisation Plans

19th August 2022 16

This year, the traditional summer silly season has been less frivolous than usual but equally daft.  My facebook feed included several opportunistic posts from the Trades Union Congress suggesting that they have finally been persuaded as to the benefits of public ownership. “We are now calling for the public ownership of energy companies.”  Note the “now”.  Apparently, the idea has … [Read on]

The Polish Prime Minister on the return of Russian Imperialism

12th August 2022 15

Historical challenges and false directions – Europe at the crossroads The war in Ukraine has exposed the truth about Russia. Those who refused to see that Putin’s state has imperialist tendencies today have to face the fact that in Russia, the demons of the 19th and 20th centuries were revived: nationalism, colonialism, and totalitarianism. But the war in Ukraine has … [Read on]
