Democracy – Dancing for Joy?

About 300 years ago, like a smouldering kapok pillow, a massive revolution began its slow burn.  A scientific revolution. A social political revolution led by great minds. Newton, Spinoza, Locke, Voltaire, Rousseau,  Diderot, d’Alembert, Montesquieu. Hume. Robert Burns. Thomas Payne.

LOLCats with a Vengeance!

It’s enough to make you want to just give up and forget it all and look at some funny cat video.

Rights of Man

John Howard is against a Bill of Rights and that’s enough for us. The little shit has always been so wrong that anything he is against is certain to be right

Burma Railroaded : .mp3 version

Sir Roger has gathered an enormous, highly professional cast to enact his latest post – “Burma Railroaded”- for the ears of his loyal audience.
