  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Greg- I would suggest the Politico website. It is comparatively centrist and seems to allow unlimited views. Politico Europe is also worth a read on European issues - while basically pro-Brussels they do try and cover Europe generally and clearly...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    It may be unfortunate, but Labour tends to win when people can not take the commissar accusations seriously. (which is also why the remoaner stuff now is going down badly). Atlee was the epitome of middle class respectability (a Kipling...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Agreed, although according to Private Eye the current editor is rather less of a true believer than Dacre. It also seems ill advised to use this against conservative MPs and activists. Again on tactics what they did this afternoon should...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I am prepared to believe BoZo and Penfold believe he has the best political antennae of their crowd based on the referendum and playing through the EU stuff last Autumn to the election and thus want to keep him. We...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    The Earth scenes in Citizen of the Galaxy with the corrupt judge and the power of the corporate executive and litigation grinding down ring unfortunately true to life today. If there is a second term then perhaps Revolt in 2100...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    In relation to this one I would go along with our gracious host at 1394, particularly on the optics. IIRC the journalist who originally interviewed David Kelly did not think there was a real story there (and was mocked for...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    While understanding why it will not be written, I am amongst those who are sorry we will not see a book. It must be disconcerting for an author to see his flights of fancy echoed in real life - Christopher...
  • Commented on Infomercial Interlude
    The HH books can be weird indeed, especially the ones he wrote with Eric Flint. At one stage clearly the entirety of the equivalent of the House of Lords were shown to be jerks of the highest order (with the...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    I did say hope rather than expect. On the optimistic side he may just be a narcissistic sociopath and perhaps Pence can persuade him, based on Pence's own experience, that it is in his electoral self interest not to take...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    On the basis that one should prepare for the worse (or at least the very bad) and hope for the best, a look at the European statistics for cases, mortality and figures per million do seem to suggest that the...
  • Commented on Infomercial Interlude
    This brings back memories of my early working days when the job involved a certain amount of letter writing and proofreading documents. It always amazed me how much more easily I could catch mistakes reading the letter upside down on...
  • Commented on Infomercial Interlude
    I have enjoyed as a reader the fact that the Laundry books have in recent years been coming from multiple view points. It keeps it interesting from the readers point of view and no doubt (and more importantly) from the...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    I think you are underestimating the effect of the content of the telegram (basically setting up a plot to create a war between Mexico and the USA with a side order of Japan) and the strength of US isolationism then...
