  Politicians react to shocking census and immigration figures with a shrug of the shoulders  The facts are there for everyone to see. Immigration has changed the country. In some parts, Britain has been transformed in just a few decades, picking up pace since the turn of the century. In historical terms, it has happened in little more than a blink of an … [Read on]

Harry and Megan Echo and Narcissus

21st December 2022 20

When Aristotle repeated the wisdom of the Delphic Oracle of ‘Know Thyself’ he was preceded by a long line of poets, philosophers and other idlers. The phrase spans all languages, all religions. It is one of those quick and helpful philosophical gems which, like the ‘Cogitans’ of Descartes – ‘I think therefore I am’, fits the modern world of fast … [Read on]

Conservatives at war with a parliament totally out of touch

21st December 2022 7

Isn’t it strange how these days conservatives are the radicals and heretics? Traditionally (in every sense) preservers of the old orthodoxies and institutions, many conservatives are now railing against them and calling for their overthrow. And little wonder. Parliament might be another world away, preoccupied with issues far removed from Joe Public, and singularly failing to address the issues with … [Read on]

Where are you really from? Lady Hussey was right to ask

3rd December 2022 19

This week I was banned from Twitter – rather frustrating as I had a few things to say, vital issues local and national, lack of staff in Marks & Spencer, why can’t someone as distinguished a broadcaster Michael Buerk use ‘gave’ instead of ‘Gifted?’ Then there was Lady Hussey being sent into internal exile for a serious crime against the … [Read on]

Foot in Mouth Disease at the Palace

3rd December 2022 7

If only Lady Susan Hussey had asked charity boss Ngozi Fulani, a Rastafarian whose parents came to Britain from the Caribbean, what her heritage was, she would have been on safe ground. Fulani identifies as being of African heritage, Caribbean descent, and British nationality. Unfortunately, Lady Susan uttered the forbidden, ‘Where are you really from’, and thereby revealed her white … [Read on]
