I wonder, are we being Coughlin’d here.

Curious Hamster offers up an intriguing little tale of comment censorship over at the Daily Torygraph… Last night, I noticed that “journalist” Con Coughlin has a blog at the Telegraph. His latest post references the “Iran is taking over al-Qaeda – nuclear armageddon – we’re all going to […]

The Rapist’s Friend

Here’s a question for you. Is it possible, do you think, to find a newspaper columnist who’s opinions are so far ‘out there’ that they make even the apocalyptic world of Mad Mel Phillips look like an oasis of sanity in and insane world? (And before any starts, […]

White, working-class ‘racism’, the BNP and a few uncomfortable truths
