    I'm not talking about the laudable aspirations towards equality and a brotherhood/sisterhood of man and woman, nor am I referring to individuals having the freedom to advance and better themselves without being told what to do. I specifically mean being directed by the state in the...

  5. Is it acceptable to vote for someone because they are white?

    I was reading an article about the Labour leadership in the Guardian, and there was an interesting comment from Dinae Abbot's campaign - basically that she is appealing to the 'black' vote (and women, and the left apparently).

  15. How Long Can the Coalition Survive

    Reports this morning (on Andrew Marr show) that a group of Liberals are thinking of siding with Labour against the 20% VAT rise. I wonder how fragile this unholy alliance actually is, and at what point it will no longer be sustainable.
