BY EFFIE DEANS Few people in Scotland probably know very much about Belarus, a small landlocked country of 9 million to the east of Poland. But then again, few people in Belarus know much more about Scotland than that men wear skirts, play bagpipes and imitate Scrooge McDuck. People in Belarus are frequently blissfully unaware of the parts of the United Kingdom. They describe the … Continue reading Europe’s Penultimate Dictator?
America has lost its collective mind – not a new phenomenon in history. If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. Somehow, it is un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good. It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” … Continue reading So Bad Over There?
BY DANIEL KAWCZYNSKI MP Most Britons could not locate the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) on a map. But this far-flung outpost plays an absolutely critical role in our national security. Home to a joint Anglo-American naval facility on Diego Garcia, the peninsula is known as America’s ‘unsinkable aircraft carrier’. In the 1960s, the BIOT helped to contain Soviet ambitions in the Indian Ocean. In … Continue reading The Overwhelming Case For BIOT
BY PAUL NEWALL The reopening of pubs on Saturday put me in mind of a 4th of July from several years ago, when I hit the town with a guy I went to school with. I’d offered to take him out because he was what would be termed these days as an InCel (involuntary celibate). I thought I could help him with his confidence issues … Continue reading The Xi Virus
BY DANIEL KAWCZYNSKI MP As Britain prepares to step out of the European Union, our Overseas Territories will play a hugely important role in re-establishing ‘Global Britain’. Nowhere is this contribution more obvious than in the realm of defence. Last year, I joined two fellow MPs on the first-ever official parliamentary visit to the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT). On that trip, I saw first-hand … Continue reading BIOT is Key
BY PAUL NEWALL I spent a great deal of time in the US just after the turn of the century and I’ve followed the political scene there very closely ever since, what we are seeing there is a mirror of what has been happening here for a couple of decades and they’ve managed to get there from a completely different starting point. In Europe, the … Continue reading America Burning
BY EFFIE DEANS I don’t think many people in Britain had heard of Wuhan or Hubei province before the present outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus). The fifty largest Chinese cities each has a population greater than two million, yet few of us could name more than two or three. Chongqing, for example, was first settled in 316 BC and has a population of 30 million, but … Continue reading Little Bottle
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE With the Pope having signed the ‘Sino-Vatican Agreement’ (a treaty which allows the Vatican to appoint Chinese bishops) one could be forgiven for thinking that Christians in Communist China enjoy a kind of freedom only described in the pluralistic Utopian visions of ‘literal consumerists’ – sorry, communists – like the ridiculous Ash Sarkar. But as with any China counterfeit, this holy bound … Continue reading Forbidden Religiosity
BY ANASTASIA CHOO Taiwanese voters re-elected incumbent president Tsai Ing-Wen in a landslide election on Saturday 11th January which translates as a sharp rebuke to Beijing and its attempts to intimidate Taiwan into China’s fold. Tsai won over 8 million votes, or 57% of the vote share, leading her Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to a crushing victory with a landslide in presidential and legislative elections. … Continue reading Taixit Holds Strong
BY ALEXIA JAMES Hillary Clinton showing up during a UK General Election campaign used to be significant. Not anymore. Nowadays she’s as relevant as King Herod’s first wife, Doris. Did you know that Hillary Clinton’s speaking fees have plummeted? According to Newsweek, after she left her job as secretary of state but before she declared her 2016 candidacy, Hillary Clinton used to make $200,000 per … Continue reading Just Go Away Hillary
BY ANASTASIA CHOO The 140,000 Chinese farm labourers, who over a century ago volunteered to leave their remote villages and work for Britain and France in the first world war, have been called “the forgotten of the forgotten”. Over the past decade, the story of China’s human contribution to the Great War has received some of the attention it has long been denied. These peasant … Continue reading Great War Chinese Labourers Forgotten
BY MEI LIN CHAN The first of October 2019 will mark the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and Beijing is pulling out all stops for a day replete with fireworks, fanfares and a huge military parade. To ensure all goes smoothly, authorities have been ramping up security in the capital (and online) for weeks. During rehearsals for a military … Continue reading Hong Kong Dominates China’s 70th
