The Ten Plagues of Brexit: Nicky Morgan, Death of Firstborn

The Ten Plagues of Brexit: Death of Firstborn (with Nicky Morgan)
Nicky Morgan MP warns of death of first born

A vote to leave the European Union could have a devastating impact on the life chances of young people, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has said.

Entering the debate over EU membership, she urged parents and grandparents to think how their vote would affect opportunities for the next generation.


"It's clear, that if Britain leaves Europe it will be young people who suffer the most, left in limbo while we struggle to find and then negotiate an alternative model. In doing so we risk that lost generation becoming a reality," she said.

"And everyone who casts their vote must understand that. If parents and grandparents vote to leave, they'll be voting to gamble with their children and grandchildren's future.

I am a free agent - Giacomo Casanova

Giacomo Casanova by Anton Raphael Mengs

“I will begin with this confession; whatever I have done in the course of my life, whether it be good or evil, has been done freely: I am a free agent” Giacomo Casanova

Upon reading the excellent pieces by Tachybaptus concerning the Saints, I thought for the sake of balance that a piece about a sinner would not go amiss. Enter Giacomo Casanova, born in Venice in 1725, died in Bohemia in 1798, two years before the fin de siecle; his life therefore spanning a good three quarters of the 18th century. There have probably been quite a few men like him, and probably more to come, but not many who have chronicled their lives as thoroughly has he has done in his “Story Of My life.” Fortunate for us that he was bored out of his skull working as the librarian to Count Joseph Karl von Waldstein in a remote castle in Bohemia in his latter years.

Saint Quilda - Martyr, c.1435–1487, canonised 1591

Attr, the SNP
Modern day St Quilda
She was born Anna Grisinek, daughter of a peasant in the neighbourhood of Mrk, in present-day Croatia. As a girl, Anna was renowned for her ugliness, for which she more than compensated with intense piety and devotion, spending many hours at prayer in the village church. Failing to find a suitor, in 1465 she entered the nearby Dominican convent of St Alginus, taking the name Quilda (of unknown origin, possibly a version of the Celtic St Kilda). Her piety and her abilities rapidly raised her to the post of abbess. The sisters already observed the strict Rule of Serbonius of Perge (later canonised as St Serbonius), which obliged them to walk at all times on their knees; Quilda made it more arduous still by having the stone floors covered with pebbles.

In 1487 an Ottoman invasion bore down on the town of Mrk, and it seemed that the convent would be sacked and the nuns violated by the Turks. Quilda prayed earnestly for deliverance, and her prayer was answered: suddenly her teeth grew to enormous length and sharpness, a sight so hideous that the other nuns fled the chapel. When the Turkish troops broke down the door, the transformed Quilda stood alone to confront them. At the miraculous spectacle, the commander and all his men fell to their knees and converted to Christianity on the spot; after which both they and Quilda were beheaded by the rest of the army. The Turks, however, left the convent untouched for fear of what else they might find.

But I don't want to live here, Dad...

Street urchins

It was 1974 when Dad decided he was going to move us to a new house, in a neighbourhood 14 miles away. I recall being very upset that it would be the end of so many things that had become important to me. It would mean a change of school, there would be no park to play in, and little if any opportunity to see the friends I'd made over the ten years we had been in our old house. I liked the old house, with its creaking stairs, Victorian flourishes in terracotta and its shaky sash windows. I liked to trace the designs in the ceramic tiles in the little porch. The new place was modern, plain and functional, just like the new neighbours who all seemed to live behind venetian blinds, locked away in their own private little cocoon of domestic solitude. The old neighbourhood had a certain buzz. People looked out for each other. I remember coming home from school Summer camp in 1969 to find Mum and Dad were not at home. My Nan had died after a long struggle with cancer and they had gone to her funeral. The lady from up the street met the bus that brought me home and took me into her house and gave me sympathy, fish fingers, chips and beans. It wasn't like that in the new place.

The Sunday Sermon with Going Postal, 27th March 2016

Morning congregation. Today the vicar is having a lie in and thanking the Lord and the English football team for his bounty, 3-2, 3-2, 3-2, 3-2 .  .   . The roof repair fund is blessed.

Please welcome our guest vicar Mr Tachybaptus who will be giving the reading this morning on St Montgomery, more popularly know as Mongomerius the Hermit.

SAINT MONTGOMERY - Hermit, c.540–after 622, canonised 1120, feast day 26 August 

St Montgomery is the popular name of Mongomerius the Hermit. Born around 540 in Alexandria, he showed an early talent for religious commentary, and at the age of six wrote a refutation of the Gnostic cosmology of the Gospel According to St Thomas which caused much controversy in his native city, as much for the extreme nature of its views as for the youth of its author.

We have looked at the stifling effect of Authority through the perspectives of Art, Science and Philosophy. Music, interestingly, was less threatening - even lyrics can escape unnoticed. Bach was almost forgotten by 1800, Beethoven's third symphony, originally entitled "Bonaparte", was swiftly renamed. Mozart and Schubert were largely untroubled by such dogma.

How to become a Labour MP

So you've decided to become a Labour MP. Great! So what do you need to do to achieve your goal and help bring about a more just and cohesive society? The following is a step-by-step guide on what you need to become an MP for the greatest political party ever created.

1. Employment history

It is essential that you've never held a real job in the real world. After graduation, the only acceptable jobs you can hold are working for a Labour MP, working in your local Labour constituency party, or working for a left-wing think tank. Employment in the private sector is not acceptable.

Crime and Punishment

A Reflection

Aftermath, Brussels terrorist attacks
As the dust literally settles on the latest outrage committed in Europe I wondered why we no longer seem able, as free democratic peoples, to react to these types of atrocity in the appropriate way.

No doubt American, British and French planes will fly sorties over the “Caliphate”, with the occasional “success” and there is no doubt that some of the perpetrators and their co-conspirators will  either be killed in the execution of their “holy” or “political” duty,  killed whilst trying to evade capture or be arrested for their crimes.

I am not my brother's keeper

Enoch Powell
I have been reading several of Enoch’s religious books and I am indebted to Mr Powell for the idea that I am not my brother’s keeper. Citing the biblical story of Cain and Abel, Powell takes issue with the prevailing morality of the 60’s and 70’s (still occupying the moral high places today) that what my brother chooses to do is in some sense my responsibility and shows that it most assuredly is not.

The story (Genesis chapter 4) tells of how one day Cain ‘rose up against his brother Abel and slew him.’ Then God said to Cain: “Where is Abel your brother?” Cain retorted, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” This has been interpreted by those of a Leftward persuasion as proof positive that we are all interconnected and that somehow we all are custodian of our brother’s wellbeing. And yet, even a cursory reading of the reply that Cain makes indicates that what he says is said with a large dollop of sarcasm. Am I my brother’s keeper? No.

Paris terrorist captured: The left-wing version

Rocket Scientists
Hard-line far right Belgian police have this evening injured an unarmed Muslim man in Brussels. The man, Salah Abdeslam, who sources describe as a beautiful human being, was minding his own business when the neo-Nazi police officers carried out the raid and savagely shot him and then handcuffed him. Islamophobes have claimed that Abdeslam was behind the Paris incident last year, in which, as Stop the War rightly said at the time, 130 people reaped the whirlwind of Western foreign policy.

Gerry Downing, who said we should never condemn the 9/11 terrorists, is said to be greatly distressed by the news of the arrest, and Jeremy Corbyn, who wrote to a judge last year urging the release of a jihadist who'd stolen money from elderly pensioners and sent it to ISIS, says Salah Abdeslam is a political prisoner.
Mr Corbyn did, however, welcome the decision by the mainstream press, including the BBC and ITN, not to report on an incident yesterday in which a Muslim man armed with a gun chased teenagers in London in the daytime and fired a few shots at them. The police are currently hunting the teenagers for suspected Islamophobia.

Stop the War, Unite Against Fascism and Hope Not Hate are in the process of organising a solidarity march to protest against the Western imperialist colonialist Zionist conspiracy that they blame for harassing innocent men like
Abdeslam and Mohammaed Emwazi and for causing ISIS to keep sex slaves and throw gay men off roofs.

24x7 Disinformation and Social Engineering

I have long considered the BBC to be an undemocratic and agenda driven monopoly that has become extremely skilled at hiding some of its real intent behind slick production, and clever writing/editing.

At its heart, as we all know, it is politically biased and unashamedly plays its favourites, allocating far too much time to the Jones, Mandlesons, Toynbees etc of the world to the exclusion of many social and political thinkers that would offer a far more balanced and erudite view of things.

Merkel's Power Fades

BERLIN (Reuters) - Voters punished Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives in three German regional elections on Sunday, giving a thumbs-down to her open-door refugee policy and turning in droves to the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD).

The result is a big setback for Merkel, who has led Europe's biggest economy for a decade, and could narrow her room for manoeuvre as she tries to convince her European Union partners to seal a deal with Turkey to stem the tide of migrants.

So the LORD Juncker rained hail on the land of The United Kingdom;  hail fell and lightning flashed back and forth. It was the worst storm in all the land of The United Kingdom since it had become a nation, this was the feared ‘Climate Change’.  Throughout The United Kingdom hail struck everything in the fields—both people and animals; it beat down everything growing in the fields and stripped every tree.

Feminist Glaciology

Photo Credit Liam Quinn

Glaciers are key icons of climate change and global environmental change. However, the relationships among gender, science, and glaciers – particularly related to epistemological questions about the production of glaciological knowledge – remain understudied. This paper thus proposes a feminist glaciology framework with four key components: 1) knowledge producers; (2) gendered science and knowledge; (3) systems of scientific domination; and (4) alternative representations of glaciers. Merging feminist postcolonial science studies and feminist political ecology, the feminist glaciology framework generates robust analysis of gender, power, and epistemologies in dynamic social-ecological systems, thereby leading to more just and equitable science and human-ice interactions.

And it shall become small dust in all the land of The United Kingdom, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of The United Kingdom.

And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before the Brits and Tusk sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
