BY ALEXIA JAMES The population of the US is 328.2 million. That’s almost five times the UK population. So how come they end up with a presidential race between the venal Donald Trump and the senile pervert Joe Biden? Sniffing Joe is not all there. He makes Ronald Reagan’s latter Alzheimer’s years look coherent: Biden’s a sex pest? Don’t believe me? Watch this: As for … Continue reading America’s Dispiriting Dilemma
BY RUCHIRA GHOSH She may well have been an icon of colonialism, pertaining to a bygone era, but modern-day aficionados of English literature in my home country India simply cannot do without Agatha Christie. This prolific author whose novels were outsold only by The Bible and Shakespeare (an unbroken record yet) still enjoys global popularity (including erstwhile colonies of Great Britain) decades after she walked … Continue reading India Loves Agatha
BY EFFIE DEANS There is almost no political correctness in Poland. Few statues were vandalised by Black Lives Matter activists in Warsaw, because there are very few black people living there. A few hundred thousand people from neighbouring countries like Ukraine live in Poland, but the largest ethnic/racial minority originally from Vietnam is less than twelve thousand. If you wander around Warsaw, you will find … Continue reading A Great Ally
BY RUCHIRA GHOSH In India, the works of P. G. Wodehouse, Agatha Christie and Enid Blyton have mercifully never fallen out of fashion or favour. It is through these novels that many Indians learn not only the English language but also about British culture. Even on Enid Blyton’s 123rd birthday, she is as relevant as when I was a child and growing up on her … Continue reading India’s Love of Blyton
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
