The Slide of the English Bar and UK Society Continues and Accelerates

When I started to blog, I intended to write about things of general or objective importance. I intended to avoid the personal and subjective. Above all, I wished to avoid mixing the objective and the subjective. However, I think that some of my personal reminiscences and thoughts might be of interest to others. I also … Continue reading The Slide of the English Bar and UK Society Continues and Accelerates

Labour’s Slide is Social Nationalism’s Best Chance Yet in England

In recent weeks, the decline of established or System political parties across the “West”(together with the System mainstream media that supports them) has become common currency among commentators. One does not have have to look at the United States, France etc to see that the narrative has resonance; it is happening in the UK too. … Continue reading Labour’s Slide is Social Nationalism’s Best Chance Yet in England

Thoughts about Bitcoin

First Remarks I am not an economist; neither am I, at least in terms of occupation and/or formal training, an historian. I say that from the outset simply because it may be objected that, especially in terms of economics, I have no intellectual locus standi, despite the fact that most predictions made by economists turn … Continue reading Thoughts about Bitcoin

Tommy Robinson Banned on Facebook: the repression of free speech online

I interrupt other blog writing to address an immediate issue. The activist known as Tommy Robinson has now been banned from Facebook, he having already been barred from Twitter. That news highlights again something that I have been writing about, blogging about, speaking about (at the London Forum in 2017) and tweeting about —before I … Continue reading Tommy Robinson Banned on Facebook: the repression of free speech online

An Unexpected Discovery

My blog, as regular readers will know, concentrates on ideas or matters of general import to society or the world. I do occasionally blog about other things, such as the less strictly legal aspects of my life at the English Bar, particularly if the story or anecdote has a humorous element or one which, to … Continue reading An Unexpected Discovery

Some Thoughts About Venezuela, Socialism and Fellow-Travellers

I watched a BBC2 TV documentary about Venezuela. Something like Venezuela: Revolution in Ruins. I was of course au fait with the way in which other revolutions in history developed and, in many cases, degenerated: Russia/Soviet Union, China, Cambodia/Kampuchea, Ethiopia, Cuba etc, even France (from 1789). However, I especially wanted to understand better why this … Continue reading Some Thoughts About Venezuela, Socialism and Fellow-Travellers

The “Campaign Against AntiSemitism” (CAA) Takes A Serious Hit

The “Claque” Many readers of this blog will have read of my experiences with the malicious and extreme Jew-Zionist organizations, “UK Lawyers for Israel” (UKLFI) and “Campaign Against AntiSemitism” (CAA), the memberships of which overlap in part. For example, the abusive Jew-Zionist solicitor Mark Lewis, who has now fled to Israel, is a leading member … Continue reading The “Campaign Against AntiSemitism” (CAA) Takes A Serious Hit

Barristers, Solicitors and Fees (and a few other things that irritate me)

Background As some of my readers will know, I was from 1991 to 2008 a working barrister (sometimes in practice in England, sometimes employed by international law firms); I was also nominally a barrister, but neither practising nor employed, from 2008-2016. In 2016, I was disbarred by reason of a malicious Jew-Zionist complaint against me … Continue reading Barristers, Solicitors and Fees (and a few other things that irritate me)

“Mark Lewis Lawyer” Tries to Have Part of the Case Against Him Thrown Out

The Jew-Zionist lawyer (solicitor) Mark Lewis, best known for the UK phonehacking cases of some years ago, is facing a disciplinary tribunal under the auspices of the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, and is trying to have part of the case against him thrown out on the specious basis that he was “merely responding” to rude comments … Continue reading “Mark Lewis Lawyer” Tries to Have Part of the Case Against Him Thrown Out
