Collapse of culture? Try I CAN GO FOR THAT: THE WORLD OF YACHT ROCK, on iPlayer & the cerebral . It’s about “millionaires’ make-out music”. A cliché each 10 seconds from fab, Me-Me-Me Katie Puckrik. Yep, & were all about... teak decks. Who knew?

Yes, language is fluid, and yes, we all make mistakes. But check the final adjective in the caption. Now the Torygraph is going down the route, the collapse of the bourgeoisie can’t be far away. Collapse of infrastructure, genuine science, culture — and grammar.

Fantasy island greens in circle loop. Talk of ‘investment’ new industries - they about shutting down productivity. Abolish, slash consumption 2 extreme austerity. Sounds like no economy. Where’s innovation to drive change? Fed by state/ where’s your tax yield coming from?

True enough, but weather is different from climate. Greens elide the two — as you say, when it suits them. Still, we can be sure that solar power is responsible for 100 per cent of electricity supply right now, oh yes

Who knew? Our liberal friends No Platform the class war. Great! But as somebody once said: “You may not be interested in War. But War is interested in YOU.”

Evaluating New Labour with only a passing reference to Iraq is like assessing the Kennedys' trip to Dallas with only a brief mention of that unfortunate incident with Lee Harvey Oswald

FUN PROPOSAL/THE MASK SLIPS: uber-cool aristo Marina Hyde beats an awful idea — proroguing Parliament — with a worse one. “Would a military coup really be so bad?”, she asks. But we’ve already had a coup — the 3-year suppression of !

This is devastating news. is one of loudest & most passionate voices in the union movement. The FBU will not be the same without him. A tragic decision. Are Labour Leave voices now being suppressed?

Guy, I agree. Hope you will also be as warm about dissidents making a stand for democracy & freedom closer to home. & come to mind. Yes, Europe is watching. Sadly EU doesn't seem able to see what's in plain sight. But we see you. Clearly.

It was a brilliant speech on how the Left and Trade Unions should be supporting Leaving the EU the Gen Sec of the Union makes speeches about tolerance yet acts like a tin pot dictator the majority of decent members of will support

This move is a complete disgrace. SHAME on the FBU for repressing ITS MOST ELOQUENT LEADER. I’ve backed the FBU since the 9-week national strike it began in November 1977. I gave money at a meeting of my union, and, to a hushed room, heard an impassioned address. Now this. SAD

Here’s a welcome relief from all the bad news. Top man, excellent review; lifts the spirits now we can’t eat meat, buy new clothes, fly or use gas to cook. In a world of Green bans, more Green taxes and unlimited Green cant, our talents as humans can still shine through. Remember

You made s very sensible contribution on . Activists are really ignoring realities and they won't listen or deviate. We really need more people like yourself on TV explaining the reality of these targets and the true impact they will have on daily life.

Please RT: I’m on ~7.45pm, debating the on T May & the UK setting the world an example by going for Net Zero in 2050. Yep, “clean” capitalist growth to show Beijing and Delhi how it’s done, OK. But does You Know Who have a brighter (LED) halo?

I love it. Famous supporter of trade unions gets selfie with someone more to his taste at a conference of... the International Labour Organisation. Hooray for the working class, mon cher ami!

Two pearls today from business blurb: 1. 'LEAN IS A MINDSET'; 2. A failure to influence leads to 'CATASTROPHIC FAILURE'; plus 3. (a regular inducement of instant nausea) 'ONBOARDING'. More tomorrow (cont p94) ...
