Roderick Spode in Barking mode

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Mark Collett , Nick Griffin’s right hand man, got into trouble with his fuhrer “for plotting to kill him”.  Collett is the owner of “Great White records” and up to recently was trading as Vanguard Promotions. (It is amazing how so many people from the right to the left make a fetish out of that [...]

Sorosonimics

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Georges Soros hopes young economists will refrain from getting articles in journals -in 1988 Raymond Sauer of Clemson University calculated that a publication in a leading journal added about $3,600 (in today’s prices) to an economist’s salary. Soros wants them to spend some time rethinking economics instead. But that would mean that economists are not [...]

The future of Iran

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

It looks bleak, the Ahmadinejad regime seems bent on continuing the nuclear arms race. It does not bode well for the future. Those in power in the Islamic Republic do not listen to what people are saying. We have had enough of nuclear weapons. The sooner the Ahmadinejad regime collapses the better. But as we [...]

Anti-elections Notebook

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Yesterday Blue Cam was pelted with an egg in Cornwall, the day before he was chased by a giant chicken. It is rather funny. Maybe many more stunts are needed to disturb the Con SCAREMONGERING MACHINE. In fact, coalitions have worked. They worked during the Second World War. They worked in France, and in Germany. [...]

Cameron has just signed his death warrant

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Is this a late April Fools joke? We can only hope the Tories do decide to make this poster part of their national campaign. It will sink ‘em. Cameron’s ‘Sheffield moment’ has just been signalled. The ship is going down…

On Volcanology – parts one and two

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

“In 1783 the Laki vulcano erupted spewing ash all over Iceland. Most cattle was killed by poisoning, 3000 Icelanders died of famine. the dust produced in Europe a small climatic winter, some people reckon it played a part in the French Revolution”. (Le Monde, 18/19 April 2010.) Indeed famine was rife just before 1789 , [...]

DIALECTICAL STATISTICS

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

The phrase: ‘lies, damn lies and statistics’ was popularised by Mark Twain and expresses most peoples’ underlying distrust in the so-called objective facts used to support arguments.  The problem is often with the definition of the metrics used to measure  phenomena.  These may be presented as objective but, of course, they are themselves theory-dependent.  A [...]

Literary figs for Orlando Figes

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Orlando Figes admitted that it was his wife Dr Stephany Palmer who posted virulent attacks against leading academics who wrote on  the same subject as her husband, namely on the history of Soviet Russia. Maybe Stephany Palmer did it out of love for her wonderful  historian husband. Love is a very complicated subject. The academic [...]

On Corporal Clegg

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Nick Clegg is acting as if he has already won the General Election. He is doing a Sheffield/Kinncock walkabout. Corporal Clegg is being too optimistic. Blue Cam looks out of sync, stiff and haughty like a grandee that he is. Brown is repeating the same old mantras: “the Tories want to cut £6 billion.” It [...]
