Philby Immortalised

I'm starting to wonder if Putin is just parodying himself at this point .....

Roald Dahl's dark side

Well this is disappointing to find out. I'd never known that the famous Roald Dahl was an anti-semite.

However, having read some of his adult books I did know there was a darker side to his character. 'My Uncle Oswald' is pure filth and definitely crosses the line into outright racism at points.

Varadkar talks sense

The Tories may claim to have agreed 95% of the issues to do with separation from Europe but they seem completely incapable of dealing with the Irish border issue.

By their game of brinkmanship in relying on DUP votes to run the country they are imperiling the hard-won peace in Ireland for which better politicians fought in more sensible days. 

With any luck a compromise will be reached but it is stupid and wrong to put the Irish people on the line for what is essentially a result of Tory infighting.

Also interested to see that the current Taoiseach is openly homosexual and has Indian heritage. Remind me again why our prime ministers in the supposedly cosmopolitan UK have all been so ethnically homogeneous and (at least in public) socially conventional?
