Politics

A sense of proportion, perhaps?

From time to time, it seems to me, events or developments both at home and around the world remind us of the variety and randomness of each individual’s life chances, opportunities and indeed whatever are deemed to be our “human rights”. In the past week I have seen – on the one hand [...]

Never going to say “I told you so”, but …

Here follow two reports spotted on the internet overnight relating to one of several ongoing Rust campaigns seeking to try and highlight the lack of common sense being applied to life as it is lived in the 21st Century with all its cow-towing to diversity, political correctness, [...]

“What’s Going On” (as Marvin Gaye would have sung)

I’m glad I’m not a politician – it’s got to be one of the most unenviable jobs known to man (or woman), notwithstanding the fact that there are (and will always be) those who are inexorably drawn to taking their chances at standing for public office and indeed becoming an MP – and then [...]

Whatever you do is probably wrong …

Yesterday for me was something of a novelty as I had nothing in my engagement diary.
