Jordan Peterson Called Out (again)

Jordan Peterson absurdly claims that to commit to study or apprenticeship represents a sacrifice on the part of the student as they have to forgo the immediate pleasure of the moment,carousing every night and generally living it up in order to get their life changing degree that will set them on the path to wide expansions of experience, a livelehood and the broadening of their horizons in being able to start a family and to have a good life. So where is the sacrifice in that? Blank out.

A sacrifice as Peterson  must surely know is the forgoing of a greater value for a lesser one. As the student knows that a degree or apprenticeship will lead to a much better life and job experience to study is no sacrifice at all but a mere deferment of pleasure in order the reap the great rewards of so doing. If the student thought for one minute that giving up all the pleasures of the moment for study would reap him no rewards at all or rewards so meagre that they were not worth putting pleasure on hold they would not enter into any such study in the first place.

So why would Peterson introduce the completely fallacious concept of sacrifice into a dynamic where clearly no sacrifice is taking place? Surely it is all part of his concealed religious agenda where at the root of all religions,at their very heart lies the notion of sacrifice -show me the religion and I will show you human sacrifices aplenty.

Next we have the problem of psychology,a pseudo science which no amount of pedigreed professors can dignify with their academic jargon.To be generous it could be argued that psychology is a nascent science but that would be stretching it and the father of psychology Freud himself has long been exposed as an academic fraud with flawed and corrupt methodology who was quite prepared to falsify the facts to further his agendas.The other psychologist Peterson is forever invoking is the even more dubious character of Jung an and out and out mystic and surely deserving of the mantle of the father and prime progenitor of New Age  religion.

Thirdly we have the problem of what I call Peterson's inverted anthromorphism. The proper study of man is man -not animals yet the professor is forever claiming that to understand human beings we need to study babboons or other such animals and he indeed refers to human beings as animals. He is obsessed with domination hierachies extrapolating from chimpanzees to humans somehow forgetting  that mankind went through a revolutionary process known as the enlightenment where barbarism was replaced with the rule of law and reason  governing man's affairs rather than brute force and tyranny. Trade replaced the blade as man's means of survival.

It is absurd to claim that a man who has studied and is industrious and so becomes a ceo of a large organization is dominating others like a babboon in a monkey colony and to seek to conflate those two things is anything but an innocent error on the part of the professor but rather a willful intent to reduce the sophisticated exchanges of human beings to the level of the primeval jungle.

Where is free will in Peterson's dystopic universe where humans are reduced to bundles and collections of genetically biologically determined reflexes and the world is populated by mythic demons and dark malevolent forces? And what student would run up stratospherically high debts to imbibe his toxic confection of discursive fictional ramblings masquerading as science?

Ben Shapiro, Intellectual Pipsqueak - (or Why the Right Hates and Fears Ayn Rand as much as the Left does)

It must be very humiliating being Mrs Ben Shapiro to know that,as he confessed to his legions of Youtube followers  he considers his continued relationship as her husband a chore and an act of charity for if as he made clear in a recent interview he followed his true desires he would be driving around in a Corvette and pursuing younger female models. Because he is a God fearing man he instead makes the supreme sacrifice of staying with her and dealing with domestic chores such as crap-covered diapered babies in the early hours.

God tells him to stay with his wife and as the good altruist he is he puts up with it.

Ayn Rand is fine re capitalism but when it comes to human relationships Objectivism does not cut it because it is not altruistic he goes on to say.

This is further proof if proof were needed that the rights strugles to understand Rand every bit as much as the Left does because as I have pointed out ad nauseam and this is just another tedious illustration of it, the Right is fundamentally altruistic because of its religious foundations.

An associate of mine claims that the Right should be as united as the Left but if that means people such as me should not point out when the Right is being as statist as the Left but should just shut up and support it because at least it is not Left I say hell no as a statist be it Left or Right is a statist and does not get a free pass from me,sorry.

Jordan Peterson: Return of the The Age of Endarkenment

When religion was under siege in the enlightenment Kant saved it from extinction with his anfractious philosophical circumlocutions setting in train the hideoous ratiocinations of lesser Kantians from Schopenhaur Kierkergard Nietzche and the fruitcake company of Post Modernists to the present day no platforming anti free speech multiculturalist quasi fascist political correctness crowd.

Now they have a new champion in Jordan Peterson the youtube poster boy of alienated males  who ostensibly opposed to them is reintroducing a whole new dark age revival under the guise of a psychological analysis of mythical archetypes with a plethora of Jungisms and sociological tropes thrown in for good measure.

A full-on defense and promotion of religion faith and mysticism would not get too far in an age where only 5% of British people even go to church so a novel approach was required. How to present religion faith and mysticism in an interesting unthreatening non-doctrinal non preachifying way without attracting the ire of the new atheists -how effectively to spread the word by flying under false colours of neutral investigation, in the guise of an objective psychological enquiry into the religious mythos.

Thus it was that Jordan Peterson has achieved the seemingly impossible of almost single handedly bringing religion back from the dead and presenting it as a perfect template for understanding modern times,a valid guide and and aid to navigating the perils of the human existential plight.

Herein lies the rub for the very notion that Peterson propounds -that man is born into an existential dilemna and haunted by malevolence at every turn is nothing but an asertion built on sand, on the shaky shot to pieces and discredited and exploded biblical theory of original sin,the Fall, man as a cursed being wandering around beyond the firmly closed gates of Eden,buffeted by the cold winds of circumstance and biologically conditioned moreover to falter and fail through the matrix of his wretched life unless armed with the super consciousness of self awareness that will set him free which itself is a thinly veiled modernised version of religious redemption and salvation through good works.

Not since Kant himself has someone attempted to revive religious faith through such devious underhanded means and one can only marvel at the genius of the execution,the flair and aplomb involved in the operation - the sheer bare faced audacity of such chicanery.

It is hardly surprising that Jordon Peterson has become the champion of the religious right and the right in general with his anti feminist anti political correctness left positioning but those who believe in the smaller limited state should be extremely wary indeed of his solution to our present day ills if it leads straight back into the dark age mysticism from which the human race has only in such recent history so triumphantly and comprehensively extricated itself.

Dumbass Reshuffle

A government cabinet hired on the criteria of race,ethnicity gender and age is something so profoundly immoral and disturbing that it should be unequivocally condemned. The tired diversity meme was used as justification but as the word is entirely devoid of meaning the only response can be diversity of what? The answer being of course diversity of the non essential meaningless categories of race ethnicity age and gender -the ugly manifestation of the anti conceptual mentality writ large.

It is immoral in the extreme to judge someone by such perceptual criteria as race ethnicity gender and age, let alone apply such empty criteria when hiring them -it is the height of such anti intellectualism and primitive,irrationalism that any political party that behaves in such a way has forfeited the right to any trust or respect of the public and should be treated with the contempt it so richly deserves.

The Madness of Jordan Peterson

He is a bit of a Youtube phenemonon with a large folowing,very prolific and oftentimes engaging but the social psychologist has a metaphysic and epistemology from hell which frequently manifests itself in mad extreme manifestations of near stream of conciousness psychobabble and gibberish delivered in a manic semi demented fashion quite alarming to behold.

Now this is a problem for the reason that most of his talks are lectures given to a class of young impressionable students and here I think there is a definite breach of academic standards and violation of codes of conduct and ethics for he makes no attempt to present both sides of any issue and  is engaged in naked outright academic activism and tendentiousness.

He majors in Jungian mysticism,forever alluding to archetypes and expressed in pseudo academic intellectual manner designed it would seem to bamboozle his listeners rather than to enlighten them.

Arbitrary unsubstantiated assertions trip from his tongue with rapid fire alacrity making it hard for the untutored mind to detect the logical flaws,apriori leaps of reason false assumptions and bizarre conclusions arrived at all at breakneck speed.

Peterson makes much of his contempt for the post modernist movement which is ironic since most of his conclusions are congruent with it and he is fond of name checking some of the worst suspects of that movement such as Nietzche who prefigured it and Piaget whose ambition we are told was to reconcile faith and science which is telling for Peterson's whole schtick appears to be just that a convoluted pretzelogical foray into circle squaring neatly disguised as an examination of mythical archetypes drawing heavily on biblical stories as templated for the human existential dilemna.

There is much dishonesty in this,much disengenuousness and when confronted directly with the question do you believe in God Peterson is unable to answer it prefering evasion instead,  declaring that such a question is designed to pigeonhole him.

There is much that is good and beneficial for the viewer in many of his videos not least his ability to instruct the lost and damaged bringing them back to individual responsibily and it is undoubtedly the case that his psychologicial insights and observations can at times be mesmerisingly brilliant and elucidating, liberating many young people from the spiral of depression,negative thoughts and destructive behaviours that can potentially ruin lives and blight aspirations and for this he is to be unreservedly commended.

Oh but the metaphysics and epistemology  are simply appalling! The biological determinism,the denial of free will implicit in his harping on the subcultural norms of ancient non civilisations,his drawing on the lives of semi barbarian peoples of the middle and dark ages and further back still -as if such monsters could possibly be a template for understanding modern man in any way shape or form - simply preposterous.

What of any value can possible be learned from such pre renaissance,enlightenment pro reason and scientific cultures,why dwell on their subhuman behaviours as if anything could possibly be extrapolated from them to shape and inform and throw any light whatoever on the modern mind with its sophistication and adherence for the most part, to reason and logic over mysticism and brute force? Blank-out.

The question is why go to such elaborate lengths to dwell on the pre renaissance cultures to emphasise the nihilistic Nietzchean view of the human dilemna and then attempt to transcend and negate  it all with positive thinking,self help inspirational talks? The setting up of a straw man followed by a Dale Carnegie pep talk -all very odd bizarre and contradictory.

Why is the BBC promoting Religion and the Monarchy?

I will preface my comments with a sick note re five days of absolutely  horrendous flu under my belt (thanks a lot flu jab) plus a sleepless nite but still feel compelled to address this phenomenon abovementioned which when examined turns out to be no such thing at all and which I will hopefully be able to explain.

We tend to buy into the argument that to be left wing is to be anti monarchy and anti religion.Yet where did communism choose to plant its jackboots but in the most primitive,backward steeped in superstition country on earth namely Holy Russia itself.

This was no accident.A people already softened by religious credulity and servility are ripe for totalitarian rule as they have already bent the knee and subjugated their minds to a holy tyranny of obedience and obesiance to priest craft and its hierachical stipulations.Its but a small step from worshipping God to worshipping Stalin -a seminarist let us not forget.

Civilised advanced industrial nations fully embracing science reason and technology -forget it they would not buy the communist line although of course they would later succumb to the equally irrational albeit Germanic nationalistic blood race theory of Hitler.

The essential characteristic of both institutions of monarchy and the Church is Collectivism,a virulent anti individualism so those who wish to bring about a socialist state will find both those institutions very helpful in ushering in their dictatorship.

Hence the BBC's allegiance to both monarchy which it is pushing tirelelssly of late and the Church which just as it is announced that religious belief is in sharp decline in the nation it has decided to give yet even more coverage to.

So do not fall for the propaganda that the likes of Peter Hitchens is forever pushing that the Left is anti religion and anti monarchy but instead trust the overwhelming evidence to the contrary illustrated every day in the nauseating sycophantic coverage of both those things on the BBC day in day out.

Tories Time for a er, Realignment?

I've been saying for some time that the tories need to have a Corbynesque internal purge,open up party membership to the public as Milliband did with Labour at a fiver a time and it will quickly become apparent that the membership are far to the right for want of a better word than its MPs.

This is the only hope for the party if it is to have a future,to recognize that the public are restless and Brexit-intolerant of leftist malcontents within the tory ranks who it is becoming painfully obvious if left unchecked will drag us all screaming back into the clammy embrace of the Brussels federasts.

A day of reckoning with these running dogs of leftist revisionism is long overdue,they do not belong in the party and never did - the Ken Clarkes  Soubreys and prince of darkness himself Dominic Grieve and the sorry cabal of their acolytes,nameless nonentities all who should be driven out of the party on a rail -presumably to the open arms of the Labour and Liberal ranks.

So be rid of its traitorous treacherous vermin or allow them to drag the whole party down in ignominous defeat and certain Corbyn hegemony from which consequent economic catastrophe and depradation  this country could very well never recover.

Suitably purged of its broad church satanic leftist Brusselphiiliac cliques it could then have a clear unobstructed path to Brussels,suitably armed with with cast iron ultimatums and demands brooking no dissent or compromise.If it is spurned it will go to WTO rules forthwith and sail off to brighter shores and sunnier uplands free from the oppressive yoke of the Brussels potentates who can devour themselves, no longer having the productive UK to batten on for their parasitic sustenance.

UK: Stay in the EU - Or have a Civil War?

It's true. I thought Peter Hitchens was being hyperbollick when he said a while ago that the UK was on the brink of civil war but now especially after the Westminster chicanery last evening I see it is a distinct possibility.

What are the options? The numbers in the house of commons are stacked against the UK exit of the EU. The Conservatives are arithmatically on the Remain side -hell's teeth we have a tory prime minister who is an avowed Remainer and who has steadfastly refused to answer when asked directly if she would voter differently were a second referendum called today.

We can either accept the inevitable, that the corrupt elite political class will not let us leave the EU or very bluntly seek its overthrow by direct action - there is no third way.

Democracy has been spurned by the very people who made the most noise in favour of it -when it was going their way. But as soon as the people voted against their grand plan they decided that it was a pesky thing and needed to be replaced with rule by a self selected patrician elite of technocrats.

Of course they seek to cloak this undemocratic naked power grab in the guise of parliamentary supremacy but no one should be fooled by this cynical act of doublespeak for a minute since their sole aim is to keep us bound hand and foot to Brussels with parliament reduced to a rubber stamping institution for the the Eu

To use the  principle of parliamentary democracy as the very  tool to destroy it is the kind of cynicism that even Macheivelli would never have imagined.

But so it is and we awake this morning with the sober thought that our so called representatives are iredeemably corrupt and wicked beyond all reason and are the product of a degenerative rot 40 years in the making,captured body and soul(?) by Brussels,the kind of moral reprobates for whom the tower of London is way too good.

So where do we go to now? May can hardly call an election to have it out with her Remainers when she is one herself.

She could do the decent thing and stand aside for Borris or Gove to fight on with no hands tied behind their backs (yeah,right) and dare the country to commit national suicide by voting Corbyn but that seems unlikely as it would take prescience and intelligence on her part which she is clearly and entirely lacking.

Then we have the problem that the tories and Corbyn are not that far apart ideologically so no concerted consistent critique of the mad Marxist has been proffered and there is hardly time to mount one now even if it had the ideological credentials to do it.

We are left with the stark choice of mute acquiescence with the inevitable Brussels business as usual model or civil unrest and since the latter is unpalatable and most likely logistically impossible we better get used to continued rule by the oligarchic apparatchiks across the channel - in perpetuity.

America 1 Evangelism/God 0

Yes! Elmer Gantry defeated! It Can Happen here!

Donald attached his wagon to a fallen star. Is the  net finally closing in on the molestor-in-chief - will his Gotham ingress be halted?

(It's supposed to be Congress Donald,not sexual Congress).

When will he be Weinsteined? Holy hubris batman!

Deep blue sea,meet Devil

What an invidious position we find ourselves in: de facto staying in the EU with the present cobbled together dispensation wrought last week or  the very real prospect of a  Corbyn government. Treason May the arch remaining Remainer has saved her skin but sold the country down the stygian Eu river

Or how about: the present dispensation or -the IRA will resume bombing the bejesus out of us? The DUP arrangement has been revealed as the pact from Hell.

So where to next,how to extract us all from another fine mess May has gotten us into?

Three letters: WTO. Wir kann nicht anders.

We get to pay zil;ch to the Brussels Bastards,call their bluff and usher in a true laissez faire,unregulated free market capitalist tarriff and protectionist - free market - and probably inspire other countries to follow suit and bring the EU house of cards tumbling down.

Yeah,like that's gonna happen! EU serfdom it is then.

Time to tell the EU where to put its 'negotiations'?

There comes a time when we have to acknowledge the elephantine creature in the  drawing room location wearing emperor's clothes commonly answering to the name of EU,(or the vernacular Brussels Bastards) -and tell it  few home truths.

We cannot negotiate with a bad faith partner who sees its chief role as humiliating scourge of the errant UK for daring to quit its dysfunctional loony tunes outfit of misbegotten collectivist fantasists o d'd on protectionist and supra statist delusions.

We think we better leave right now, we are getting weaker and weaker trying to reason with EU guys when all you want is to ensnare us in your serpentine games of smoke and mirrors,your byzantine Kafkaesque word games,semantic chopping conceits and all round linguistic circumlocutions.

Enough,we are out of here before you can say WTO,ready to embrace the sunny uplands of liberty,to inhale the intoxicating invigorating winds of change sweeping EU into the dustbin of history as we go as you fold like a pack of cards upon your own internal contradictions.

With a Nixonian flourish we have to tell you there will be no UK to kick around anymore,you will have to find someone else to milk to fund your bottomless appetite for danegeld - good luck with that one as Europe is near to bankrupt thanks to your shennanigans -'there's no money left,Germany is prostrate and its 4th Reich delusions will crumble like pie crust as they did before in the wastelands of Stalingrad all those years ago. France continues to be a basket case of leftist retards fighting the endless revolution and so on.

Bye bye,nice not knowing you!

Shroud waving time at BBC Grenfell

There's nothing like a good vicarious wallow at the scene of a disaster to facilitate truckloads of finger pointing grievance mongering-left politiking-faux moral outrage -hand wringing and censorious posturing at the BBC - such a pity to let a tragedy go to waste after all.

Cue the BBC camped at the burnt out wreck of Grenfell, the perfect location upon which to launch its  lavish gruesome pity fest exercise in virtue signalling. The takeaway: the government is evil,probably plotted Grenfell to get rid of chav detritus,is unfeeling,uncaring - and lets have dollops of taxpayer's money to shower like confetti upon the poor victims of government larceny and callous insouciance at the grief of its despised underclass - yada yada yada (repeat to not fade).

Form an orderly queue at the vomitorium....

Theresa May wins Chamberlain Negotiation Prize

(Or: It's easy to join the EU but impossible to leave. Or: It was hard for us to join the Eu but even harder to leave).

Ve hav vays of making you stay in the Eu. When the hoopla and the smoke and mirrors of yesterday's staged euphoria have evaporated like a snowflake in sun we are right back where we started from.Stasis is spun as movement,  status quo as change.You can check out anytime you want but you can never leave...

Cynicism rules and what is abundantly  clear now amidst all the semantic prestidigitation of the faux negotiation terpsicorain go round (or dance macabre) is that when it comes to arrant chicanery and doublespeak, Westminster is  in every way Brussel's equal.

Uk low productivity Why?

Is it the taxes, regulations,British tea and coffee addiction ('drink coffee and do a lot of stupid things quickly') famed British bloodymindedness, the entitlement culture, political correctness in the workplace - feminism, the anti business envy culture Yep, cracked that one in a sentence! Only a capitalist party could fix all of that bar the coffee of course.. So be prepared for the Uk downward economic spiral to continue apace or if Corbyn prevails a high speed version of the same.

Open Letter To Trump

Stop twittering and take out North Korea. The idea of a nuclear tipped missile winging its way to the UK -well it would spoil my whole day. Please do not conflate bluster with action.Your bragaddociao has made America the laughing stock of the world and you are only one year into the presidency.What have you accomplished? I shall leave the rest of this page blank -nada nicht nothing.A few timorous tax reforms.

Right now you are doing a brilliant impersonation of the Wizzard of Oz. The world knows you are full of sound and fury signifying nothing.Kim very ill knows it too believe me which he why he keeps on hurling weapons hither and thither.The enemy sense your weakness,your paper tigerishness.Donal get your gun,you ain't foolin anyone.

Your moral impotence is in inverse proportion to your bluster. Striking poses,looking bullish will not cut it.You think you will be heard for much twittering, your strenght is mad imperfect by weakness. Instead of being castigated by the Left for things they accuse you of doing which you are not doing why not be castigated by them for actually doing those things?

You end up in the absurd position of being attacked for values you do not possess or choose not to act upon - the worst of all possible outcomes.

Even your base will rumble you sooner or later unless  of course what you have going which many suspect is a cult,like Bernie Sanderism and Corbynism where the glassy eyed adherents sing your lavish praises no matter what you do or fail to do.Like the character in 1984 as long as you give your acolytes their daily one minute of tweet hate they will continue to swoon at your clay feet and keep on taking the Trump tablets. 

Meanwhile the world goes to hell in a handcart,bereft of a moral steer and in that vaccum what hell awaits when the greatest military power in human history cowers before muslim troglodytes in caves and a psychopathic Marxist in the dysopia of North Korea?

Illiberal Hegemony Potemkin Village

There is no Left at one end and Right at the other -its a lie as there is Left and Right at one end and libertarian small delimited state at the other. The Left and Right should make it official and merge,come clean and fess up to the bipartisan ideological affinity and brothers under the skin kin ship they share and stop fooling everyone including perhaps themselves.Their cognitive dissonance re this obvious reality of the state of affairs is deafening and occludes the reality beneath that it is a monumental stitchup by the political elite establishhment to deprive the electorate of political plurality and choice - to effectively disenfranchise them,to create a barrier of separation between the state and the people it ostensibly represents -which it never did or  has done anyway..

This Giant Deception is preventing a much needed realignment in British politics and is a roadblock to genuine democracy,sucking the oxygen out of the polity facilitating ever greater statism and robbing people of their liberty birthright.

Prince Hewit? A Paternity Test Perchance?

Well I think this should be cleared up especially as the head of state may very well skip a generation as the plant talking - muzlim loving - spidery writing - meddling eco maniacal all round nut job Charles is invited into premature retirement and one of the sons is anointed and as the eldest is clearly dopey to say the very least the crown may well fall on the affable ex playboy  media savvy gingery one notwithstanding his recent comments and protestations about being a reluctant member of the Firm.

Thus the monarchy is neatly saved from its well deserved and overdue place in the dustbin of history and revivified with new blood to live to plunder another day and another day into the distant future. But whose blood is Harry's -I think its the least his put upon indentured slave taxpayers who are supporting him in the manner to which he has become all too obvioulsy accustomed are entitled to know especially as the media sycophancy over this sickly and degenerate dysfunctional outfit is about to go into mega fawning fulsome nauseating forelock tugging overdrive in the next few months.

School's Out - but only just

Labour's fixation with the youth vote is very revealing. Those who have been round the block a few times or even remember when the unreconstructed Labour Left was last in power are under no illusion what socialism means in preactice let alone theory and would have none of it.

Only the youth preferably 16yrs old wet behind the ears militantly ignorant,mentally unformed living in a totally dependent world where only black and whites exist and even they are tenuously grasped would be prey and fodder to the socialist siren call of Marxist in its most virulent toxic form.

It is just as questionable that 18 yr old university students should be given the vote either as they are merely degenerate forms of the abovementioned in whom the rot is more pronounced and aggressively manifest in all its decadent ultra naieve nihilistic progressive delinquency.

And they don't pay taxes -so we have the inversion of the principle of no taxation without representation and just as a grevious corruption.

Guru Roy Masters Pulls Gun,Arrested,spends night in jail..........

Well,it had to come. The hot headed guru of the quick buck has landed himself in big heap trouble as that infamous and legendary pesky emotionalist hare trigger temper got the better of him in a recent altercation which landed him in jail. Unable to headbutt his interlocutor (his old preffered style before becoming demented -(spot the difference lol) and frail) he pulls out his trusty widowmaker and flourishes it around.

What goes around comes around and it is only a while ago that I reported his spawn of satan Mark Masters got himself arrested for a,er contretemps with his beleagured wife and found himself arrested so it definitely runs in the family.

Anyways, no doubt all his cloned followers will rush to his defense and characteristically spin it to his glory and valor -the usual trajectory of denial and fiction weaving so renowned of cult devotees. The rest of us eye opened ones can sit back and enjoy the spectacle of another clay footed pretender of the mystical and unknowable disintegrating before us.

Great News from German Front!

The very motor and dynamo of the EU lies crippled and prostrate, hoist on its own foolish immigration peturd,too weak and eviscerated to dictate to Britain anymore,a compromised basket case of a country, meaning its one more obstacle removed from a smooth victorious Brexit. Zumwhol to the Ger,mans! They don't like it up em,but its up with them now. Just rejoice at that news! Just rejoice at that news!

Hammond: Madoffenomics or Frugality?

Eyore's tendency is thrift when it comes to big government notwithstanding his contradictory and frankly bizarre pro Remoaner status so there may be some restraint in his budget next week but at best it will be frugality around the edges and big splurges may feature in it as let us never forget even the most provident Tory is still a big spender -its the nature of the beast, tory or Labour. So no alarms and no surprises please.

And yet will he resist the siren call to deploy vast injections of taxes towards  housebuilding - in a eerie Groundhog Day re run of what got the world into a disaster in the first place a few years ago -anyone remember that little er economic hiccup?

Commonsense is in short supply and in the mixed economy madness of the age we can only muster small hopes  and recognize that any chancellor in such a system can only engage in disaster management -unless of course his name becomes Macdonnel  when we are all marched off the cliff into a bottomless Marxist void.

Poor Matthew! (Yeah, Wright).

One almost feels for the simpering rabid EUphile Matthew Wright as he twists himself into pretzels of simmering rage over the Brexit Brussels 'negotiations' (which seem more like the demands of hostage takers to me).After excoriating the Telegraph for daring to call the Brexit quslings 'mutineers' he insisted with all the sincerity of a politician on the take that he was neutral in the debate.

It's not his fault. This absurd pantomime pretense of neutrality that tv presenters are forced to be party to is the result of the antediluvian broadcasting rules which stipulate in effect that presenters must have no bias re politics and present both sides. We all know this is impossible as the writhing Euphile Matthew illustrates ever other day on his detestable daytime prog so why not dispense with the rank hypocrisy and let every presenter wear his political bias or predisposition on his sleeve so the viewers can be accorded some respect as adults and not treated like children who can't tell the difference between between a Left and Right winger or Brexiter and Remoaner.Please!
