From the Bennett entail to Edward Casaubon's vindictive codicil, whimsical wills have provided great plots. And scarcely a week goes by without a story of some nutter leaving a fortune to the cats' home, or far more irrationally "to whoever was the party of government of the day". ...Read More...

From Pakistan Today (h/t Sarka at Harrys Place): Islamabad - Sharia Correspondent: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting ...Read More...

It isn't often I agree with a Muslim murderer, but Adebowale's response to Judge Sweeney's boilerplate assertion that the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby was "a betrayal of Islam" is a rare exception. From The Telegraph via Esmerelda's post: “That’s a lie. It’s ...Read More...

A few weeks ago I made a will. Not because I'm expecting to die soon, but because I'm not, and still feel that its contents and purpose have nothing to do with me. Of course I could get run over by a bus -- this seems to be the usual manner of untimely death -- but overall I'm  pretty ...Read More...

Men were deceivers ever, and Kirsten Evans is hardly the first lady to sigh over a cheating husband. The difference is that Aman follows a religion in which a husband's cheating isn't adultery -- it's just marriage. From The Daily Mail, with thanks to Esmerelda: Her wedding dress was elegant, ...Read More...

Nearly ten years ago, Mark Steyn wrote: When Catholic groups complain about things like Terrence McNally's Broadway play Corpus Christi (in which a gay Jesus enjoys anal sex with Judas), the arts crowd says a healthy society has to have "artists" with the "courage" to "explore" ...Read More...

I was trying to remember who that Mancunian tax-fiddler was, the one who wrote about oranges and onions. Ah, yes, this one: Anthony Burgess knew his onions. From Inside Mr. Enderby, with thanks to former NER writer John Derbyshire: His breath smelt startlingly of (startling because few hosts serve, ...Read More...

From Wikipedia: An onion dome (Russian: ?????????? ?????, lúkovichnaya glava) is a dome whose shape resembles an onion. Such domes are often larger in diameter than the drum upon which they are set, and their height usually exceeds their width. These bulbous structures taper smoothly to a point. It ...Read More...

Robert Spencer is right to reconsider  Tommy Robinson: [E]vents have been unfolding rapidly. Tommy Robinson has written to us emphasizing that he has not changed his positions, and the unfolding events have borne that out. The documentary When Tommy Met Mo shows that Tommy was not fooled by the ...Read More...

It was Harry and Sally who started all these meetings off. Metgate, I call it. Title aside, this is an interesting documentary, and worth watching all the way through. Tommy Robinson has not changed his views on Islam, but naively thinks that Quilliam share them. The most important aspect of Quilliamgate ...Read More...

Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller have done so already -- if I'm reading the corkscrew of an argument in this post correctly. Giving up is premature, however. I think he's boxing clever. Listen to him in this clip (h/t Harry's Place). The Chair of the Islamic Centre in Luton calls for ...Read More...

I dislike the expression "poster child", not least because most poster children would be irritating whatever you called them. Malala Yousafzai is the poster child par excellence, and the fact that she is celebrated by the BBC should ring alarm bells. "D" from his excellent blog Defend ...Read More...

Time was when the British Bobby on the Beat made do with a truncheon and a helmet. As for the WPC, she had to make do with a big shtick. But now they're biting the bullet. From the BBC: An armed police officer who had sex on duty was not sacked because an appeals panel said it was similar to "a ...Read More...

The Independent's Reyhana Patel believes that the niqab is a symbol of women "refusing to be part of the present-day society’s vapid consumerism and sexualisation". I had my doubts, but this picture, above a Telegraph piece by Theodore Dalrympl, changed my mind: Just look at that ...Read More...

What is the collective noun for a group of dozy bints? Rhyming slang would suggest bunt, especially as a woman in Islam is all awra. The Independent's Reyhana Patel showcases a bunt of bints whose "right" to dress like black ghosts eventually prevailed against the common sense of Birmingham ...Read More...

So, children are drawn to brightly coloured tat? Would it be very surprising if these children grew up to value the meretricious and to have no powers of aesthetic discrimination at all?  (Theodore Dalrymple) But 'twas ever thus.

It seems only yesterday that house prices had gone off a cliff, and now they are spiralling up in a virtuous circle. Rob Hutton in journalese love-fest shock: Where is everyone in a lab coat a “boffin”? Where is “bubbly” either “guzzled” or “glugged”? ...Read More...
