The Silent Sisterhood: How Feminists Collaborate with Rape and Murder

In one of the most famous passages of his Summa Theologica, the great Catholic philosopher Thomas Aquinas (1225–74) considers this delicate question: “Whether the blessed rejoice in the punishment of the damned?” He concludes that, yes, they do: “the saints will rejoice in the punishment of the wicked, by considering therein the order of Divine […]

The Egomaniacs’ Ball: Chutzpah, Ethnocentrism and the Separation Solution

“You can never be too rich or too thin.” That’s a memorable line from Wallis Simpson, the American divorcée who turned Edward VIII into an ex-king. It’s a self-aware joke about female psychology, but its humour also comes from the incongruity of the adjectives it uses. Wealth and weight are different kinds of variable. It’s […]

The Pyromaniacs’ Ball: The Grenfell Tower Disaster as a Metaphor for the West

Mathemodels of reality Scientists try […]

Brave New Britain: Vibrant Enrichment in Manchester and London

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. This crisis provides the opportunity for us to do things that you could not before.” The patriotic Israeli Rahm Emanual didn’t actually say that, but it perfectly reflects his Machiavellian character. It also describes how free speech in Britain is now going to be attacked […]

Manchester Malady: Traitors Lie, Children Die

“Diversity is indeed a strength, not a threat.” That’s a line from the Queen’s Christmas message in 2004. “I love the diversity of London — I just feel comfortable.” That’s a line from the former immigration minister Barbara Roche in 2011. “Our priority as a government must always be to keep people safe.” That’s a […]

The Golden Globalists: MacShane and Macron vs Marine Le Pen

Slugs are remarkably resilient creatures. If a snail falls from height onto a hard surface, it might well crack its shell and perish. A slug falling the same distance will absorb the impact in its springy flesh and slither away unharmed, eye-stalks jauntily re-extended. A Fraudster Bounces Back Did Denis “The Slug” MacShane draw inspiration […]
