  2. Sharm el-Sheikh

    Not a good week for the kleptocrat Pharaoh. The British government is being severely unkind during his London sleepover. I wonder what he's done to annoy them. Every rug has been pulled out from under his feet since he left Cairo. Islamic State, much like the Taliban in years gone by, is a tool...

  4. The Afghan earthquake

    Not a huge earthquake, but certainly magnitude 7.7 can be lethal. It will be interesting to see, given that the country is awash with fully equipped NATO troops and all their transport already in place, whether armed forces really are capable of providing timely humanitarian aid. It's not often...

  6. If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise

    Ten percent of Florida's wild bear population is being killed by hunters this week. Bears are not safe to live near, apparently, being rather like Floridians in this respect. The Wildlife Commission's advice on encountering black bears is to remain standing upright and speak to the bear in a calm,...

  9. What a witless bunch of incompetents

    I refer, for the sake of clarity, to the entire House of Saud. I note the death this week of "at least 717 people" "injured in a stampede near the holy city of Mecca", after which the Saudi Minister of Health is reported as saying "this is God's will" while blaming the dead for "not following...

  10. Geoffrey Howe, RIP

    I note the death of an honourable parliamentarian who spent a quarter of a century on the front bench, though nothing in his life there became him like the leaving it. I offer, for a quarter-hour reflection and as a memorial, one of the most polished stilettos ever wielded in the House of Commons -...

  11. "They'll be dead before they vote again"

    I am utterly disgusted in what has been said by the Taxpayers' Alliance at a fringe meeting at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester. What sort of unfeeling, wicked, selfish people are there attached to the Conservative Party ? Is this what is going to happen to the pensioners who...

  12. Politicians in uniform

    I watched a few minutes of the BBC 24-hour news channel yesterday. The item consisted mainly of a chap engaged in damage limitation, he being responsible for the behavior of US forces in Afghanistan and a genuine really-truly hospital having been blitzed by one of his warthogs. As best I could make...

  17. Brian Sewell, RIP

    I note with immense sadness the death of Brian Sewell whose views on the arts were immeasurably valuable, and evidently valued by many in this country throughout the second half of his life. I don't recall ever seeing him on a television, though I understand he made a number of series relating to...

  19. County Clerk Jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses

    She has refused to issue licenses to same-sex couples and has now been jailed for contempt of court over the issue.

  20. Killing wild animals for fun

    There's probably a more neutral word for it, like "collateral damage". Hunting, fishing and shouting? Something like that. An unutterably despicable cad went to Rhodesia (as Americans still call the place, while flying flags of the Confederacy) and harpooned a lion...
