  • Is our Government's Covid Response Driven by Science?


    Well, that's a debatable point, but we now have confirmation that there are some in government who appear convinced that the current low level of Covid cases will not mark the end of the pandemic. How do they know? Is there any scientific paper that suggests that it will carry on for another year? Do they have so little confidence in their vaccines?

    Or do they have wind of some other factor that has as yet not revealed itself to the world at large?

    UK Column News present their update for today, 3rd May:



  • Is There a Climate Crisis? The Science Says Not Now and Not in the Future


    I reported this lecture by Dr Happer back in March, in the form of a transcript.

    I am happy to present this very accessible and informative presentation as a video, which perhaps removes some of the dryness of reading a transcript:

    Revised 2021-04-29, 2021-05-02

    When one writes to one's MP one might hope to receive a response that addresses one's specific queries, but it's probably no surprise to find that this is not always the case.

    Lockdown Sceptics recently highlighted just such an exchange of letters concerning the Covid vaccination campaign, and it makes for interesting reading:

    "I find it alarming that much attention is paid to the headline figures of

    This is a few days old now (sometimes I have trouble keeping up).

  • Public-Party Partnership for Political Ends?


    I seem to be finding more legal cases by the day, and this is another brought to us by the Good Law Project, who have well and truly got the bit between their teeth on holding "our" government to account for their cavalier disregard for their legal responsibilities.

    This one is about their responsibility to keep Conservative Party political messaging out of the government's public messaging. Bearing in mind that the May elections are imminent, this is no minor point.

    It also brings once more into focus something that we may find concerning - the World Economic Forum in partnership with the UN now seems to be running the world's governments,

  • So You Think You Know Your Democracy?


    In these fraught days it is becoming more obvious with every twist and turn of the Great Covid Saga that we no longer live in a functional democracy, which I will loosely define here as our government by our representatives in Parliament. When we left the EU, Parliament assumed "sovereignty" under the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 in apparent contravention of the pre-EU constitutional settlement whereby our sovereign Monarch would appoint government ministers and Parliament would hold them to account on behalf of we the people. Was this a constitutional change by sleight of hand, or simply an ambiguity of wording?

    So what of "democracy"? If we would aspire to a better form of government, then it behoves us to understand what we have now, and to define what kind of democracy we need, so that we will be in a position to suggest how we may change the system to get to where

  • UK Democracy is Broken - What to Do?


    Conservative Woman is generally a well-grounded publication and this recent article is no exception.

    Our theme today is well supported  by this article which tears into our current political situation with a frankness that the Conservative party leadership would do well to heed - but inevitably won't.

    "We have no effective means of questioning or educating government ministers and policy-makers, even when they spout the most dreadful nonsense. It turns out that public debate – and the very occasional opportunity to vote for our ‘representatives’ – is demonstrably a pretence"


    "There is something you can do. There are many examples of truly democratic inclusion, and extensive evidence that such respectful strategies lead to improved decision-making: see

  • Dismal Record for Independence Party


    I find that I'm needing to point up more problems with our "elected" governments under the "two party" system.

    This time Briefings for Britain draw our attention to a summary by Think Scotland of the SNP's record in government. It's a useful article and I think it appropriate to our times.

    In short:

    "the SNP, despite being in power over the last 14 years, has an unparalleled  record of failure in every policy area"

    "We the people" of Scotland elected these guys and "we the people" need to fix the problem.

    Snakes Alive!


    Oh dear.

    This site tries to avoid gossip, but sometimes the gossip becomes unavoidable.

    Today it becomes unavoidable because it directly impacts on how this nation is governed, and that impact is probably as serious as it can be.

    So without further ado I give you I give you today's comment from Independence Daily.

    I'm not saying that it is accurate in all respects (although I have great respect for the author, who probably has nailed it more or less).

    I am saying that it illustrates exactly how far we in these isles have strayed from the ideal of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

    How have we come to the miserable position that we have a

  • Carrier Strike Force to Fly the Flag


    After many years of defence cuts and the strategic reviews that led to them, Britain is back . . .

    Reports in the press confirm that we will send a "carriier strike group" to far eastern waters (albeit with a little help from our friends).

    Defence Secretary Ben Wallace:

    "When our Carrier Strike Group sets sail next month, it will be flying the flag for Global Britain - projecting our influence, signalling our power, engaging with our friends and reaffirming our commitment to addressing the security challenges of today and tomorrow"

    Sky News has the story.

    I hope they will leave us enough boats to defend our fishing grounds, not to mention that invisible line down the middle

  • The Mystery of the Disappearing Covid


    A puzzling feature of the recent Oxford study into the effect of vaccinations on Covid prevalence is highlighted today by Lockdown Sceptics.

    The study investigated seven groups of people according the the length of time before and after jabs 1 and 2:

    (Group 1 was a control group, no previous positive test and no jab)

    • Group 2: more than 21 days prior to jab 1
    • Group 3: 21 or fewer days prior to jab 1
  • Mark the Day - "Covid pandemic over in Britain, say experts"!


    The Daily Telegraph reports (paywalled) that an Oxford University Professor says that Britain has moved from pandemic to endemic.

    That would obviously be a momentous statement, implying that the emergency is over.

    It is already being fought tooth and nail.

    The vaccination programme (being credited by many for this situation) would have to be stopped as none are authorised for use outside of an emergency, and the remaining restrictions would be lifted as no longer required.

    Not so fast - the doomsayer in chief Prof Whitty, reported by the BBC unsurprisingly begs to differ. '

    "Prof Chris Whitty told MPs that would be dangerous and risk

  • Brexit is Not Running Smoothly Within the EU Machine


    Brexit was "done" and supposedly "dusted" in January, but it doesn't seem to be working too well.

    We all know about the problems spawned by the EU's interpretation of the the N.I. protocol, but the practical difficulties faced by our ex-pats still living in the bureaucracy-focussed union's member states get less attention.

    And of course the EU Parliament may decline to ratify the treaty at the end of this month (never let another opportunity to extract more concessions go to waste) and even if they do, the individual member states may similarly continue the rearguard action...

  • The Davos Agenda for a New World Order


    Wasn't the January Davos get-together cancelled this year due to you-know-what?

    Well, yes and no. The Get-together was off-limits but the Davos Agenda virtual event took its place.

    So what did they talk about?

    Well, it being a five-day event with multiple streams,lots.

    Carl Teichrib reports in Technocracy News:

  • Taiwan - Key to World Peace or Flashpoint for World War?


    Formosa - beautiful island - Taiwan - if the CCP wanted to persuade it back into the mainland fold then perhaps it should not have treated Hong Kong as it did. Maybe they need lessons in how to make friends and influence people? Or maybe they don't actually want to learn. It's all very much at odds with the much-vaunted long-term strategy of Chinese patience in pursuit of its global objectives.

    Whatever, the "Biden administration" which was expected in some quarters to throw Taiwan under the CCP bus has apparently stiffened its sinews and adopted a joint resolution with Japan calling for “peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait”, thus aligning itself with one of China's foremost competitors. Bearing in mind their alleged enormous investment in subverting the US election process in order to install their puppet in the White House, the CCP are probably not pleased.

    Frankly, it makes you wonder just who is running the US foreign policy, given that "sleepy Joe" seemingly can't even get up a flight
