CORONAVIRUS | WHERE’S THIS HEADING (PART 2B)?


This is Part 2B of what will now be a four-part series of posts; things are changing rapidly. We’re interested in the extraordinary impact of governments’ reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us consider that, as grim as Covid-19 could be (and for now that remains arguable without meaningful data and in the context […]

CORONAVIRUS | WHERE’S THIS HEADING (PART 2A)?


This post is Part 2A of what will now be a three-part series. The thrust of my argument from here on is that for nations to strive to return to globalised business-as-usual post-Covid-19 would be a mistake; indeed, it may not even be possible. Some of us argue that life won’t and, indeed, shouldn’t be […]

NB: I have amended the original post on this subject to reflect feedback from a Moray Councillor on the facts […]

STARTING A NEW JOB


This website was conceived – as the strapline suggests – as a father’s thoughts for his children. I wanted some way of sharing thoughts and ideas with my children that didn’t involve me boring them rigid over the dinner table (not unknown). I’ve been pretty rubbish at focusing on the sorts of topics that might […]

Captain Charles Hazlitt Upham VC and Bar The history of the UK’s membership of the European Union is the history of the UK shitting on its Commonwealth family (pardon me for the language).  Here’s one man from a fine member of the Commonwealth family, New Zealand, whose life deserves a mention.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire.
