Britain

Who are we – and what are we doing here?

Beginning my daily review of the news websites this morning I was still reflecting upon last night’s Channel Four documentary Moon Landing Live broadcast at 8.00pm which I happened to watch in the company of a forty-nine year lady and my son Barry who is thirty-seven. It was a fascinating [...]

I must go down to B & Q’s

As an avid reader of the Rust I often smile when reading the campaign running by my sport colleagues and sometimes wonder why they haven’t been attacked on social media or even reported to those authorities concerned with imposing “equality” upon Britain in the 21st Century. Nevertheless, [...]

Not waved, but drowned

From me today no comment at all on the latest on Brexit, the Tory Party leadership contest, or the anti-semitism problems of the Labour Party – we’ve all had enough politics to last a lifetime during the past three years. Instead, another “hats off” to one of my favourite [...]

The Open (Day One – from a distance)

… And so to the first day of the 148th holding of The Open yesterday and a brief note upon my personal experience of it.

Is it just me?

One that Rusters might have missed

Last weekend’s memorable surfeit of epic world class sport – much of which I missed due to inevitable broadcasting scheduling conflicts and domestic commitments including the hosting of an ill-timed dinner party – will remain long in the memory. After a two-hour drive back from the south [...]

Making sense of it all

In this modern era of “fake news” – the blurring of lines between what is fact and what is not, even to the point of nakedly-apparent transparency of any incident that takes place being publicly described as an instance of either A … or indeed, e.g. by another supposed news source, as an [...]

Maximising sporting potential

We have all heard of the famous “10,000 hours rule” – the theory that anyone with serious ambition can transform themselves into a competent practitioner of virtually any skill or activity if they apply themselves to it with enough dedication and repetition. The theory is grounded in every [...]

Second Tuesday thoughts

Yesterday afternoon, no doubt like many who had time and opportunity, I settled down in front of the television to watch the BBC’s live coverage of Wimbledon – specifically, by flicking back and forth between BBC1 and BBC2, the Women’s quarter-finals between Elina Svitolina and Karolina [...]
