Nelson’s Column Toppled By Wrecking Ball in Historic England Graphic

Taxpayer-funded quango Historic England has posted a gif of Nelson’s Column being destroyed by a wrecking ball to advertise a debate on whether we should “remove” statues deemed “controversial”. The graphic, titled “revere or remove”, advertises a public forum on the topic next month. The debate features Afua Hirsch, who has argued that Nelsons’ Column should be toppled. Historic England has a budget of £86.5 million…

Previously, there was a concerted campaign to remove a statue of Cecil Rhodes at the University of Oxford, and there have been other campaigns in Scotland and Bristol. More airtime for this leftist hobby horse funded by your money…

EU Wants Cultural Quotas on Netflix and Amazon Prime

marcel marceau

On-demand video services like Netflix and Amazon Prime have flourished under limited regulation, offering a wealth of content to users who were previously stuck with television schedules packed full of adverts. They are consummately pro-consumer. Naturally, the EU hates them…

Disappointingly not much of it rhymes, such is the modern way. Alec Finlay’s from ‘a better tale to tell’ composed from submissions to The Smith Commission is definitely unique. “Corbyn” by Ernest Schonfield seemed to Guido to be basically a list of sort of things a drunk Scottish socialist shouts in a row (“war criminal Blair”) and it turns out Ernest is a writer and Lecturer in German at the University of Glasgow. So very probably Guido’s guess is accurate.

Enjoy this timely and important work, demonstrating that the intellectuals are, as always, at the vanguard of the revolution. Guido hasn’t enjoyed poetry so much since read Dr Seuss to his children…

Quote of the Day

Boris on Osborne and Project Fear:

Unemployment has fallen by 250,000 to a new low of 4.2 per cent while record numbers of jobs have been created – including no fewer than 8 for the former chancellor and chief architect of project fear who has become a glorious living rebuttal of his own preposterous warnings.”
