Fate

It is the start of another week of Brexit madness where the lunatics truly have taken over the asylum. The paths of Scottish Independence and English Brexit are drawing to an inexorable conclusion. I know many of the purists in our movement hate the linking of Brexit and Scottish Independence. These feelings while understandable are Read more about Fate[…]

Here We Go.

  We are witnessing the imploding of the English Empire that began in 1066. There are no cities burning, no wall coming down, no guns, bombs or bullets. All we have is just an archaic system of patronage and corruption that is imploding. Historians will write books, plays and films about these times that we Read more about Here We Go.[…]

Time To Open A Second Front.
