The Real Pandemic

The Real Pandemic

For many months now a pandemic has been sweeping the western world. A disease that is a threat to health, our livelihoods and our very way of life. No, not covid-19, but a far more dangerous virus, that has infected the minds of government politicians all over the world: authoritarianism.

Symptoms include, but are not limited to, feelings of distrust and contempt for the public; brazen disregard for the rights of autonomous human beings; and the perverse delusion that governments are entitled to control our lives.

The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill : How spying powers can be abused.

The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill : How spying powers can be abused.

When Kingdoms were established thousands of years ago, the overall apparatus of spying on the population to find any hint of wrong-think or rebellion among the people who may want to rid the place they live in of authoritarian rulers has not changed much,

Rather it has evolved. The most trusted servants were often used by the ruling Kings, Queens or Emperors to gather information on finding out which enemies, both foreign and domestic, threatened them. Many empires of the past including the Roman Empire with …

God Bless You Please, Ms Sturgeon?

God Bless You Please, Ms Sturgeon?

With every farther step, like announcing the Sober October, as well as facing Margaret Ferrier’s affair, Nicola Sturgeon proves once again that she is an extremely pragmatic politician – at the same time pretending to be an extremely principled person.

That was the same trick when Ms. First Minister ordered the unequivocal commitment of the SNP against BREXIT, and so is the case with COVID, when all government and propaganda forces are thrown into the stage of creating the image of the ruthless and uncompromising Holly …

What Do I Care What Corbyn Might Be? I Know What he IS

What Do I Care What Corbyn Might Be? I Know What he IS

Is Jeremy Corbyn an anti-semite? The debate rages but Keir Starmer appears to have had enough evidence and he has suspended him from the Labour Party over his refusal to recant.

It looks like he may even be expelled. Farewell then Jeremy, I won’t miss you. There’s another debate to be had here about free speech, and Jezza being entitled to express an opinion no matter how “offensive” that opinion may be deemed to be in certain quarters. But that’s not my argument here.

Whether or not …

Where Are All the Enraged Business Owners?

Where Are All the Enraged Business Owners?

As we all know, Jeff Bezos is well on his way to being the world’s first Trillionaire. Probably in no small measure to lockdown restrictions that benefit his business model.

I’m sure we won’t be relying on him to protest against the lockdown any day soon. Similarly, companies like Deliveroo are having a boom bonanza. What of every small and medium sized operator out there trying to earn a crust? Specifically in the hospitality trade, who’s plight we would regularly hear about BEFORE the covid calamity.

According …

Something Worse Than Covid This Way Comes

Something Worse Than Covid This Way Comes

 

According to Dr. Sunita Gupta of Oxford University, 130 million people are at risk of starvation due to lockdowns.

The UN states that between 42 and 66 million children around the world will be reduced to “extreme poverty”. UNICEF predicts the death of 1.2 million children due to lockdowns. Other sources have observed that an unprecedented number of “deaths of despair” from alcoholism, drug abuse and suicide are resulting from the lockdown. Fear is not a just arbitrator of data, and it …
