Remember the much ballyhooed Leytonstone Koranic expert, who shouted at a suspected terrorist during a stabbing at a tube station "You ain't no Muslim, bruv"? Because no true Muslim would kill anyone in the name of Allah, would they? From The Telegraph: A popular shopkeeper was stabbed to death by ...Read More...

The first shall be last, said Jesus. He obviously hadn't checked his privilege. Michael Deacon in The Telegraph: Good news and bad news for gay men. The good news is: congratulations!

Many years ago, in the pre-satnav era, a colleague told me of his success in the Advanced Driving Test. As an "Advanced Motorist" he would be able to negotiate a discount on his car insurance. Did I fancy it? I asked what it entailed. "Finding your way to somewhere by following the road signs," he said. ...Read More...

Recently I asked after a friend's seventeen-year-old daughter. "Oh, she's gay again." "Again? You mean she was gay and went straight for a bit and thought better of it. So she's bisexual?" "No, it doesn't work like that anymore. Young people aren't one or the other or a bit of both like in our day. ...Read More...

Nobody could accuse the urbane, cultivated and mild-mannered Charles Moore of being extreme. His piece on Islam in The Telegraph is so gentle and understated, he should be re-christened "Charles Less", Still, some good points, and carries force because Moore has overcome an initial reluctance to see ...Read More...

Islam is not original. Mohammed looted and abused stories from Judaism and Christianity, just as he and his cronies looted and abused women and other chattels from caravans. So if it isn't original, is it nothing? There is certainly an emptiness at the heart of Islam. Indeed it is: "dull, dull, dull. ...Read More...

Jack London doesn't seem to be much read these days, at least not in London. I like his short story "To Build a Fire", which is exactly the right length - he obviously spent long enough on it to make it short enough. Unusually, a film of the story is the right length too. It isn't often you see a ...Read More...
