Charlie’s Angel – Zineb El Rhazoui And The Fight Against Fundamentalist Islam

Islam

  Zineb El Rhazoui’s views on the problems that we face, concerning the effects of religion on society, are very close to my own. Namely, it is the interpretation and application of written texts and superstitions as a political doctrine that cause problems. For the former journalist at Charlie Hebdo, even a recipe book can […]

The Morality Of Western Arms Sales – From Argentinian Tango’s To Arabian Nights

  The morality of Europe’s foreign policy is not as one might hope. The UK was making profits from selling arms to Israel, whilst Tony Blair was being paid by Arabs to ensure that there is peace in the region. It doesn’t sound quite right, does it.     In 2017, former UK prime minister Tony […]

In contrast to Donald Trump, whose lack of knowledge concerning so many world matters, makes him hard to be taken seriously, Rees-Mogg mixes […]

Dutch elections

Even from this side of the North Sea, it’s pretty obvious that, after the elections, Theresa May bought herself and her party 10 Democratic Union Party votes, costing 150 million quid a piece, in order to survive the Queen’s speech and get “back to work”.
