  • The Schools Bill 2022


    Once again, the government appears to be acting under the delusion that good outcomes depend upon government laws and regulation and that issues of freedom are of little import in comparison.

    The Schools Bill was announced in the Queen's Speech, is now wending its way through the House of Lords, and as might be expected these days is long on powers and registrations and authorities, all in the very best interests of the child, obviously.

    The problem as ever is the always unspoken but ever underlying assumption that authorities (whether local or national) always know best and should be entrusted with the obligation to police those whose idea of "best" doesn't comply with their own.

    In this

  • Yet Another Bill to Micro-Manage our Institutions?


    Bring on the Higher Education Freedom of Speech Bill !

    But surely freedom of speech is worth protecting?

    So it is. Will this Bill do so?

    The Free Speech Union overall are well-disposed to it (download).

    Our oldest universities have been around for centuries. Newer institutions of "higher education" mushroomed into being after 1997 when Tony Blair declared that 50% of all school leavers should "go to Uni" - but although technical colleges had started their ascension through polytechnic status towards university status by the time I went to college in the late 60s, it was 2019 before the

  • Censors' Charter?


    Toby Young (General Secretary of the Free Speech Union) takes a critical view of the On-Line Safety Bill in this Daily Sceptic report.

    " ... it’s a gold-embossed invitation to woke activists to censor the speech of their political opponents in the name of protecting vulnerable people from ‘harm’. Why a Conservative Government with an 80-seat majority is handing this weapon to its enemies is a mystery"

    No mystery Toby - the Tory leadership themselves have been swallowed by the blob and are now  an inseparable part of it.

    "What does the Government mean by ‘harmful’? The only definition the Bill offers is in clause 150, where it sets out the details of a new Harmful Communications Offence, punishable by up to two years in jail: ‘harm’ means psychological harm amounting to at least serious

  • Open the Gates for Pandemic Prevention


    Bill has laid it all out for us - all we need to do is just read his book to receive his wisdom - fortunately it has been published just at the right time to help us deal with the very serious threat of Monkeypox. Can this threat be countered before it becomes a pandemic?

    Of course all the usual suspects are queuing up to tell us how he is totally wrong and his solutions have been disproven, most recently by the response to the Covid pandemic, but we should remember that this isn't just Gates speaking, he has a great wealth of authoritative people behind him (the WEF, the UN, the WHO, plus sundry similar bodies that characteristically don't make the headlines, such as the Trilateral Commission, the Club of Rome etc, plus many distinguished academics such as Professor Neil Ferguson, and the full weight of the pharmaceutical industry), so we should pay close attention.

    For an untimely review of this book by some who do seem always to be at the forefront of those usual suspects,

  • Thinking of going to Uni? Read This First


    I've reflected only recently on my student days, but now I find myself posting another article that evokes another memory from those times.

    What is academia for? Does it fulfil the function?

    Uni was always sold as a place to go between finishing school and starting a career, a place where the clever and inquisitive should go to question the established knowledge, to push their understanding beyond the current boundaries, and to have fun doing it.

    Potentially difficult terrain though, especially when the answers to your questions on the established knowledge turn out to be inadequate. That would mean that a certain amount of established knowledge must be demolished before one's understanding could be pushed beyond the (revised!) boundaries, within an establishment notoriously averse

  • Monkey Pox - or Monkey Business?


    On the face of it monkeypox is an unlikely candidate for a pandemic - it spreads slowly, by contact with an infected person, is not normally fatal and can be mild enough to escape much notice.

    The Daily Exposé has a theory:

    "The main points to take away from this are that the alleged monkeypox disease is extremely rare, has rarely been seen outside of Africa, and has never been recorded in multiple countries outside of Africa at the same time"

    "So with that being the case, do you not find it strange that we are suddenly being told that cases of monkeypox are now being recorded in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, France,

  • Everything We Are Told is a Lie? - The BBC told us in 1968


    I found this clip stirred memories for me, as in 1968 I had already been trained as a new-fangled "computer programmer" and I was about to start a sandwich course at a polytechnic for a BSc in "Computer Science and Data Processing" (which turned out to be more like Maths and Stats with some computing thrown in as an afterthought).

    Looking back to those days I would have rejected out of hand the idea that a computer could control anybody, even in the relatively elementary manner posited - they were nowhere near sufficiently sophisticated, there was no internet, and although radio comms as a technology was clearly feasible it certainly lacked the coverage (unless the controlled person would be held in confinement).

    We could just about run a payroll for a large corporation after months / years of development and testing, on machines that read their data off punched cards and then stored it on magnetic tapes - no ubiquitous discs for us at that time. Happy days!

  • Lord Frost - The Last People's Democrat Standing?


    Mahyar Tousi may not be the most polished of presenters but his grasp of logic and what some of us used to call "nouse" is normally sound.

    Given the political expungement of such values throughout government and opposition in recent years, it has become necessary to look outside the House of Commons for any kind of acceptable leadership that isn't totally in thrall to all the latest modish nonsense (I won't list it all here because we are only too familiar with it by now).

    Step forward Lord Frost, the only politician who still aspires to speak our political language. At least for now.

    How long before he follows Viscount Stansgate, who as Tony Benn entered into the Commons? Who could blame him if he were to decide to stay in the Lords?

    This country needs a new leader in touch with the thinking population, whereas the extant senior party politicians, for all their talk of democracy, have all defaulted to the

  • Latest Assessment of the Geopolitical Situation


    The UK Column today presents a wide-ranging assessment of the world's geopolitical situation.

    Monkeypox, the Ukraine, the BBC, the Biden visit to the far east, Israel pivoting towards arming the Ukraine, and disinformation (you can't make this stuff up, and most entertaining this "stuff" is too!).

    And more insanity from Scotland (if that were possible)... and to "preserving faith in a world that has become increasingly Godless".

  • 75th World Health Assembly - Geneva


    First Up

    Children's Health Defence brings us what must be a very strong contender for the 'Platitude of the Year Award': "Health for Peace and Peace for Health".

    "Strengthening preparedness for and response to health emergencies are a key theme of the Health Assembly"

    No surprise so far then.

    First up: a 44 minute discussion of experts on monkeypox - but you can skip the first 7 minutes because these were terminated abruptly by "technical problems" and the session restarted.

    Followed by:

    "Opening of the Seventy-fifth World Health Assembly with Dr Tedros" and other assorted worthies (2 hrs 50 minutes)

  • WHO New Treaty AKA proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR)


    Health Freedom Defense Fund has helpfully noted the actual changes to the IHR that are being pushed through at the WHO.

    There is also a Declaration that you can sign if you feel so inclined.

    Personally I object to petitioning Parliament lest I provide our servants in Parliament with confirmation of ideas that are already above their station, but a declaration is a different ball-game.

    The WEF signed up the UN in partnership in June 2019 (just in time to help out with Covid?) so the United Nations (including the WHO) is now to all intents and purposes the political arm of the World Economic Forum.

    Neither of these institutions have any democratic credentials

  • Some Notions are Just TABU


    There is a great deal of confusion about matters legal.

    I am reasonably well educated and certainly I have trouble trying to unravel the legal niceties that seem to govern our courts, but I was unprepared for this one. Or should that be three?

    This article was published in 2016.

    It purports to describe the legal chicanery that set up the global control of all the earth by the elite, in the shape of the "Holy Father".

    But as I understand it the mechanism is based upon a fraud - the omission of the relevant facts at particular stages of one's life. Under Common Law, fraud vitiates everything dependent upon that fraud.

    If true, It cannot stand.


  • Inconvenient Truths About the Ukraine


    As the media (and many others) have been pulling out all the stops to "support the Ukraine", it has become pretty hard to find anyone who is prepared to take an even-handed viewpoint - you are either with them or against them - whoever "they" may be.

    The problem I have with that is that being "with them" these days is automatically to be put into the "we must send them more arms" warmongering bucket, and being against them is to be put in the "supporter of evil Putin" bucket.

    Apparently there isn't a "please stop the fighting and negotiate" bucket, and there now won't be until at least one side has been fought a standstill. Which side will that be?

    Judging by the surrender at the steelworks (what steelworks requires a labyrinth of underground tunnels?), it doesn't seem likely it will be the Russians.

    But just

  • One Hundred and Forty Four Truths


    This is an interesting list which appears to "prove" certain truths by logical deduction.

    I might cavil that it fails at the first hurdle by not initially defining its axioms (foundational tenets that are held to be self-evident) and proceeding from there by logical deduction.

    Part of the problem arises from ambiguous or missing definitions of terms (for example: "dream"), part from unproven assertion (example: nbr 39), and mixed together these two facets certainly drive a coach and horses through the necessary rigour required of a proof.

    I'm not sure that I could disagree with their deductions even if I might disagree with their reasoning, but that doesn't mean to say that I necessarily agree with them all either.

    I am sure that those who codified these 144 tenets knew what they meant, but from my perspective it can only be regarded as a work-in-progress.

  • Covid Review - What is the Truth?


    The truth has been in short supply in recent years, perhaps especially in the scientific journals, so it's with some surprise that I note the publication of this highly critical editorial by Russell L. Blaylock (retired neurosurgeon) in a prestigious journal, Surgery Neurology International.

    It's a wide-ranging and thorough review of all the horrors that the "pandemic" was used to unleash on us.

    Some relevant points below but these are a long way from illustrating the full breadth and depth of the article, which pulls no punches.

    "Cancer patients are being told they should get vaccinated with these deadly vaccines. This, in my opinion, is insane"

    "It should be noted that no studies were ever done on several critical aspects of this type of vaccine"

    "Previous experience with the flu vaccines clearly demonstrates that the safety studies done by
