More a paleoconservative than anything else, socially and economically a classical liberal, as of 18.06.14, he was placed here:



The vaguely termed Them [oligarchs, banksters, the global elite], the left establishment, feminism, the gay mafia, the race card, victimhood card, the laughably termed “positive” discrimination, the destruction of our nation through rampant, unfettered immigration.

Since HRC’s error in labelling us Deplorables, the name has been adopted as a badge of honour.

Bottom line is that any humbug from any side, particularly that pushed by Them and loud tin cans in public is going to taken apart, not always in a gentle way. If it’s bunkum, it’s going to be savaged, always with links and quotes showing why.

Spiritual side

Privately Christian, detesting fundamentalist bigotry, it’s not a major theme at the blog but he will attack any bollox written about it by those with an agenda.
