Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. (…)Luxon pledging allegiance to His Majesty’s ‘hairs and successors’ rather than the King’s heirs is a very human and understandable whoopsie. (Tova)

    I’d missed this one…. hahaha! Understandable for HumptyDumpty indeed!

  2. People absorb their media in incredibly variable ways. I don’t want to read more than necessary (
    Greywarbler’s refs, for instance, let alone books) and I can’t bring myself to watch Martyn’s ‘Ralston Groups’. Don’t know why, just it is.

    • If you believe we should keep beside us ideas of earlier years sumsuch that actually would be a good reference for us now. Just name the time you are versed in, and be a milepost for that time against which we could judge what has happened since, its effects, and examine present moves; get a view of how far we have moved.

      If not in to a good place, then what right direction; where and when did we go wrong. We are in the situation now of being ‘between a rock and a hard place’. But we can turn that to use – you be our rock telling us what we were thinking and attempting then, and hoping for, we looking at the place, the gap between intention and destination.

      People like me can go on trying to understand the type of trees there are in the forest (to use that analogy) and then which are most valuable to society to nurture, not just valuable in money as the first consideration. Joining together, using each other’s talents in unison, and discussing not exhorting peremptorily will be best and enable us to move forward practically with esprit de corps.

      If we can settle on our aims, and our processes, facilitate our meetings either face-to-face or by remote means, and don’t waste precious communication time disagreeing we will achieve much good, and may be able to win through to wellbeing and hopefully a happy state in the next 77 years before 2100.
