A Difficult Time Of Changes

30 Aug

A friend stayed with me a few days last week, well he’s more than just a friend actually. We had a good time especially on Friday when we met up with another friend for some drinks and a Chinese meal, then I and the friend staying with me went on to a pub near me where a […]

Colorful Characters

17 Aug

A more light-hearted blog today, after the long, ponderous ones on philosophy and politics. I have known many colorful characters in my life, and have invented more to amuse my partner when he was alive, and friends. Some of these fictional characters were loosely based on real ones. Mrs Do-not-shout was one of these. A […]

Religion, Agnosticism, Atheism, Humanism

New Gadgets/Technologies

05 Aug

In our throw away/buy new society they are always encouraging us to discard perfectly good things in order to sell us something else. Take the fad for MP3 players for example, which followed on from CDs, which […]

European Left

02 Aug

I am applying for individual membership of the European Left (http://www.european-left.org/english/home/home/), an umbrella organization which links many member Left political parties and individuals within the EU for a common stance on many issues. I have not been a member of any political party, since leaving the British Labour Party when it abandoned first unilateralism (giving up Britain’s […]
