About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Nigel Dodds: God helped the DUP become kingmakers at Westminster



Addressing the annual DUP conference near Belfast today, Mr Dodds said the party had “never had more influence” in Westminster.

He said: “If I’m honest I did not believe that in 2017 we were heading for a hung parliament where the DUP would hold the balance of power.

“But looking back I don’t think it was an accident how things turned out.

“On reflection it’s hard to imagine how the results could have done more to maximise our influence.

“A few more seats for the Conservatives and they could have ploughed on alone. Had they won a fewer number of seats, even with our help they could not have secured a majority.”

And he said: “We entered the negotiations with the guiding star of doing what was right not for the DUP, but for Northern Ireland in particular and the United Kingdom as a whole.”

A DUP source told PoliticsHome the reference to it being no “accident” was an “allusion to guidance from a higher power so to speak”.

Trump Recently Claimed #Pussygate Tape Is Fake



In a report on how Trump’s support for Roy Moore has handed the Democrats a juicy midterms talking point, the New York Times reveals this nugget:

Something deeper has been consuming Mr. Trump. He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)

So Mr. Trump has been particularly open to the idea, pushed by Mr. Moore’s defenders, that the candidate is being wrongly accused, even as Mr. McConnell and a parade of other Republicans have said they believe the accusers. When a group of senators gathered with the president in the White House last week to discuss the tax overhaul, it took little to get Mr. Trump onto the topic of Mr. Moore — and he immediately offered up the same it-was-40-years-ago defense, according to officials at the meeting.

Alabama: Where electing a pedophile/sexual predator is better than electing a Democrat

Exactly this....

As different as Night and Day

I was in City Hall, London, for a meeting. Arrived in the light and left in the dark. I like the contrast between the two photo's of Tower Bridge and how the scene offers very different things between the day and the night. I tried to get exactly the same aspect but did not quite succeed, although I hope it is enough of an aspect to see what I was trying to do with the idea of comparing and contrasting the same view at differing times.






Guess Which Country Has the Most Climate Change Deniers. (Youll Need Only One Guess.)



Do you know which country has the highest percentage of citizens that deny climate change? I’ll gladly give you three guesses, but you probably only need one: it’s the United States. (USA! USA!)

The Washington Post looked at some research on this subject and found that time and time again the country that has the most people unwilling to listen to climate science is America. While you can find a small percentage of people in every country that disagree that climate change is caused by humans, there are few other places in the world – and nowhere else in the industrialized world – where that percentage is so large.

Trump Impeachment Petition Crosses 250,000 Signatures



An online petition to have President Donald Trump removed from the Oval Office has reached more than a quarter-million signatures.

The petition was started at Change.org by The Million American Petition and has reached more than 264,300 signatures of its 300,000 goal, The Inquisitr reported.

After reaching their 300,000-signature goal, the group plans on delivering the petition to the U.S. Congress, U.S. House of Representatives, and The People Of The United States of America.

The petition accuses Trump of treason and violating the Patriot Act. It suggests that Trump conspired with the Russian government to swing the 2016 presidential election in his favor, and that Trump poses an “immediate threat to national security and his use of intimidation as president presents undeniable challenges in this investigation.”
