IMF and USA set to ruin Ghana

by craig on Jun 27th 2015 in Uncategorized

Just ten years ago, Ghana had the most reliable electricity supply in all of Africa and the highest percentage of households connected to the grid in all of Africa – including South Africa. The Volta River Authority, the power producer and distributor was, in my very considerable experience, the best run and most efficient public […]

Tunisian Attack

by craig on Jun 27th 2015 in Uncategorized

The BBC are strangely promoting a lone gunman story of the attack in Sousse. In fact it was highly organised, including some gunmen who arrived by jetski. There were many grenades thrown, which is also missing from the BBC account.

Attack of the Bailiffs

by craig on Jun 25th 2015 in Uncategorized

I posted in detail about how on moving I muddled my Council Tax and was astonished at the speed with which Edinburgh City Council set the bailiffs upon me. Through my local MP I have now received clarification that Edinburgh City Council take people to court as soon as their payment is 42 days late. […]

Nicola Corbyn and the Myth of the Unelectable Left

by craig on Jun 19th 2015 in Uncategorized

The BBC and corporate media coalesce around an extremely narrow consensus of political thought, and ensure that anybody who steps outside that consensus is ridiculed and marginalised. That consensus has got narrower and narrower. I was delighted during the general election to be able to listen to Nicola Sturgeon during the leaders’ debate argue for […]

The Apotheosis of Murdochian Corporatism – Martin Ivens

by craig on Jun 17th 2015 in Uncategorized

The Sunday Times was once a great newspaper. It has had some great editors, and some very good ones – you may be surprised to learn that I include Andrew Neil in that. Whether you agreed with them or not, virtually all of its editors for 200 years have been formidable intellectuals. Until now, as […]

Some Rules For Comment Moderation

by craig on Jun 16th 2015 in Uncategorized

This is essentially a free speech forum. I enjoy much of the banter which goes on between commenters, particularly the dedicated band of people who post on a daily basis. There is an important distinction between my writing, and the comments section. The proportion of readers who leave comments is well under 1%. I cannot […]

The Truth Avoided by Mainstream Media Liars

by craig on Jun 16th 2015 in Uncategorized

My factual demolition of the anti-Snowden story has been read by hundreds of thousands of people, very probably millions, around the internet, 50,000 so far on this site alone, and tweeted by thousands of people. It has been tweeted at – repeatedly – every single mainstream media journalist who has been repeating the government propaganda. […]

The Bagh I Wah

by craig on Jun 15th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am sleeping four hours a night in my push to get the book finished by Friday. I felt an overwhelming urge to share at least a passage of what I am working on, I suppose because it is one of the few passages that is about feeling not policy, and feelings should be shared. […]

Britnats’ Divide and Rule

by craig on Jun 15th 2015 in Uncategorized

David Torrance quotes me as evidence – indeed the only evidence – of a “Great Divide” in the SNP between fundamentalists and gradualists. There certainly are differences, but they are just differences over tactics rather than goals. I am quite open that I fear that the trivial diversion of extremely shallow extra powers for Holyrood […]

Five Reasons the MI6 Story is a Lie

by craig on Jun 14th 2015 in Uncategorized

The Sunday Times has a story claiming that Snowden’s revelations have caused danger to MI6 and disrupted their operations. Here are five reasons it is a lie. 1) The alleged Downing Street source is quoted directly in italics. Yet the schoolboy mistake is made of confusing officers and agents. MI6 is staffed by officers. Their […]

Cyber Attack On This Site to Crash MI6 Post

by craig on Jun 14th 2015 in Uncategorized

The site is under a strong denial of service attack from a bot trying to crash it by overloading with millions of pings from multiple locations. I presume the objective is to take down the revelation of the fake MI6 Snowden story, which had been read by tens of thousands already and is now really […]

Fast Track

by craig on Jun 13th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am delighted that a judge yesterday ruled that the Fast Track asylum appeals system is illegal. It is the most appalling abuse, specifically designed to limit the capacity of individuals in life threatening circumstances to properly develop and present their legal case and put it before a judge. The system of putting law-abiding people, […]

The Contrarian Prize

by craig on Jun 12th 2015 in Uncategorized

I have been shortlisted for the Contrarian Prize. I am honoured to be considered for an award of which the previous winners are Clive Stafford Smith and Michael Woodford. It probably says something about the purpose of the prize, that the rather extraordinary list of shortlisted nominees are not people liable to enjoy socialising together. […]

The Killing of Children

by craig on Jun 12th 2015 in Uncategorized

The Guardian has for once done a very good job of outlining the stark gap between the truth, and Israel’s “report” into the killing of four young children playing by the beach. It may be argued that this terrible tragedy is itself pretty irrelevant given that the Israelis killed 700 other children in Gaza that […]

Thoughts on Greece

by craig on Jun 11th 2015 in Uncategorized

Greece’s debt renegotiation talks seem to have been rumbling on forever. Today we have a “crisis” as talks break down. That is the nth time this year, and it is easy to pall. I have not blogged about it much because it is an issue of such complexity that attempting to characterise it in a […]

Tolerance and Tim Hunt

by craig on Jun 11th 2015 in Uncategorized

You can’t tolerate that which to you is inoffensive. Toleration necessarily implies putting up with people who hold views or exhibit behaviour which you do not like. The hounding of Professor Tim Hunt from his University position is an exhibition of extreme intolerance. Brilliant scientists – which those who are able to judge say Professor […]

Through a kitchen accident I have discovered the joy of dissolving tablet in coffee. My life will never be the same.

Theresa May Condemns Majid Ali and Defies Scotland

by craig on Jun 9th 2015 in Uncategorized

Despite numerous representations and an Early Day Motion signed by the large majority of Scotland’s MPs, Theresa May has ordered that Majid Ali, a Glasgow City College student, be deported back to almost certain torture and probable death in Pakistan in just twenty minutes from now. I attended the demonstration on his behalf yesterday at […]
