Stop the world, I want to get off (again)

This PC madness continues! The media is currently awash with reports of the decision of Scarlett Johansson to withdraw from a new movie called Rub and Tug in which she had been cast as a transgender character, this after protests from right-on campaigners that it should only be played by someone [...]

Phew – what inequality!

It is the case that I rarely venture onto the sports pages of the Rust. The subject is neither my specialty nor within my remit – one might even be justified in stating that it ranks above my pay grade, were it but for the fact that I don’t get paid – but today I feel moved to do so after [...]

Direct from the “Give me strength!” department:-

For those Rust readers who marvel with bemusement at 21st Century ‘Millennial snowflake’-fuelled political correctness and other ‘right on’ liberal causes … You know the sort of thing I’m talking about – e.g. ‘competitive sport should be banned [...]
