When Mueller Will Be Unleashed

There’s a lot of speculation about the Special Counsel investigating Russia interference in the US electoral process in 2016 and subsequently. While it is clear that Russian interference took place, less clear is any involvement by American citizens.

Robert Mueller, who might have been lifted out of a comic book, such is his reputation for probity and diligence, has run into criminal activity by US citizens, although these alleged crimes mostly have little to do with his mission.…

Hydra of Labour: Is Russia the beginning of the end for Corbyn?

So there we have it, we finally know what it’ll take for Labour back-benchers to move on Corbyn. They’ve drawn a line in the sand and now they’ll brace for the inevitable consequences of breaking hive rules. Corbyn’s historic affiliations with the IRA didn’t spark sufficient outrage amongst modern born-in-the-90’s Labour supporters, but an attack here and now, on British soil from an unscrupulous superpower has united not just the government, but the British public.

Corbyn and select loyalists on his front bench stand alone in defending Putin, and maybe, just maybe; this time he’s gone too far.…

Andrew McCabe Fired – Good News In The War Against The Deep State

It might sound a little vindictive to celebrate the firing of a career civil servant merely days before his pension rights kick in but there’s nothing vindictive at all about celebrating the firing of Andrew McCabe from the FBI. This is of course entirely and wholly political but in a good way. For there’s a very good argument that this is exactly what should happen to those members of the permanent government, that Deep State, who defy either the law or the orders of the elected government which sits above them.…

Google’s Think Tank Support – Bribery Or Blackmail?

The tech companies such as Google pay significant sums of money to varied think tanks and pressure groups. The aim of all this is obviously to influence the law about what Google may or may not do. There’s really no doubt about that.

And now to what there is doubt about. Is this a lightly concealed bribery, the tech giant’s money buying privilege in the political process? Or is it blackmail by the political process of the tech giants?…

Labour’s Early Day Motion Supporting Theresa May Over Skripal

True, it’s some on the Labour backbenches supporting and signing up to an EDM in support of Theresa May. But then they’re doing so because they really don’t support Corbyn and what he’s saying about all this.

There’s even talk that some shadow frontbench spokespeople will go over this. For it is generally true that Corbyn – and even more Seumas Milne – aren’t going to criticise Russia for very much. They not having quite got it that Uncle Joe and communism are both dead.…

The Sinful Horde

Those on the Left think raising prices during a disaster is cruel.

And those on the Right think raising prices in a disaster will save lives.

Notice how the two sides are concerned about different things.

On the Left, some are primarily concerned with being seen to care (I think it’s called virtue-signalling?), and presumably some genuinely believe that if you just care enough all will be well – motives are all that matter.

On the Right, people are generally a bit more hard-headed – they care less about being seen to care, and primarily care about what actually works.…

Taking over from parents

The UK government is now considering legal limits on the number of hours children can spend on social media. There is already a minimum age of 13 for sites such as Facebook and Instagram, but no checks on whether children enter their age accurately. Now government says they will have to prove their age, though they don’t say how a 13 year-old without a passport can do that. A .pdf of a birth certificate is easily forged.…

Social Media Panic – Quick, Do Something, Anything!

Rather too much of politics works upon the following lines. Something must be done, this is something, therefore we must do this. Good and hard.

Whether something must be done isn’t considered enough, the viability of what will be done is rarely considered at all and that’s how we end up with the modern world we have:

Teenagers’ social media usage will be limited to no more than a few hours browsing under new proposals outlined by ministers, it has emerged.

Does the Tory establishment fear that Rees-Mogg is their Corbyn?

It’s clear that the wet Tory establishment is not keen on Jacob Rees-Mogg. On the surface that appears to be because he holds robust views that are at odds with theirs: he’s an actual Conservative, and they are, of course, anything but. But I wonder if there’s a deeper fear there as well: do they worry that if Rees-Mogg becomes leader then the party will slip out of their grasp in the way that Labour was taken over by hard-left, Momentum commies?…

Owen Jones Protests Again His Own Saudi Paymasters

There are three possible explanations for this from Owen Jones. He’s advocating a march on Downing Street to protest against the “Saudi Tyrant.” Owen Jones makes his living writing for The Guardian, a newspaper which happily runs advertisements lauding that same “tyrant.” Thus we’ve got those three possible explanations for this:
