HS2 Is A Travesty


Following on from my ruminations of geese comes the inevitable diatribe against the government's repulsive and amazingly destructive HS2 hyper-fast rail network...

The Symbolism Of Autumn


A curious side-effect of growing older is the growth of what seems to be a new sensory gland which allows you to observe and ponder over aspects of the natural world which you'd never considered before. In the spring of my youth I hardly noticed the passing of the seasons at all, weather and climate doesn't change much in a bar, after all.

 Another trait of middle age is a renewed ability to get up early and ''do something'' which I duly did on Sunday by needlessly getting up at the break of day and walking my dog in the fields. My newly acquired middle aged sensory glands enjoy soaking up the fresh morning air and general calm and quiet. However, that calm and quiet was disturbed when large flocks of geese flying in V-formations began flying over myself and the dog.  I estimated that there must have been at least a thousand birds and the ''gaggle'' was actually deafening.

Jim Carrey Reforms Reality For American Liberals


My new video takes a look at how SNL and America's mass media created a new reality for liberal Americans to dwell in after the recent Trump vs Biden debate....

Why Centrists Can't Win The Woke Wars


In the war of woke there's a particular brand of dissent which seems at times to be almost as overwhelming as the wokies themselves, whether the YouTube algorithm or Sky news the system endorses a brand of centrism as the chosen anti-dote to the excesses of the Social Justice left. This is nothing new to people in my circles but I often find that criticism of these so-called ''Gatekeepers'' descends into simply calling this or that group or individual who promotes these ideas as a gatekeeper or shill. 

 Most of the people watching this video will be aware of who I mean because their content is usually promoted heavily here on YouTube, but over the last year or so the faction within this centrist set that I've paid most attention to, and the one which I think is now dominating, is Spiked Online.

Britain's Got Talent Factor




All of us are lying in the gutter, but some of us are dreaming of a three legged dog on a skateboard. 

A few years back on a blog post about Britain's Got Talent I noted:

The most insidious aspect of BGT is difficult to pin down, it's hard to hate a show which wants you to hate it and revels in its own imbecility, there's nothing to land a punch on, it's like fighting a cloud of gas. In the second episode a smash hit was a soprano singing 16 year old girl from Malta called Amy:

She and her voice, the music, the whole package are quite lovely. Most people watching will very rarely, if ever, be exposed to such music. So why then should far right traditionalist fascist type such as me be complaining about it?

The Ballad Of Terry Bell


In my new video I analyze a conversation I recently had with an old grafter who decided the new, soul destroying service sector, was worse than living in poverty...

The BBC's Black Lives Prom Night


The BBC's neutering of British patriotism via drenching Last Night Of The Proms in whatever social justice trends are in the news-cycle are becoming as much of an annual event as the Proms itself. As I commented last year in a video, the problem for the Proms is that it finds itself as a bastion of British Patriotism surrounded on all sides, and in the clutches of, the international liberal merchant class who despise everything it stands for.
