Judge Vanessa Baraitser seems to have no idea about “investigative” journalism. In the case of Julian Assange, no-one would believe him if he wrote an opinion piece about the documents and videos in his possession. Releasing the documents themselves was the only thing to do, in order to do JUSTICE TO THE TRUTH.

scythes  As Trump leaves office the only president to have not started a new war since WWII—and Joe Biden, who supported so many of America’s wars, including (vice-) presiding over the second and third Iraq Wars, heads into office—the talk is again what should be the most terrifying words anyone outside the U.S. could hear: More American Leadership.

The G.E. machines will have a generating capacity that would have been almost unimaginable a decade ago. A single one will be able to turn out 13 megawatts of power, enough to light up a town of roughly 12,000 homes.


The turbine, which is capable of producing as much thrust as the four engines of a Boeing 747 jet, according to G.E., will be deployed at sea, where developers have learned that they can plant larger and more numerous turbines than on land to capture breezes that are stronger and more reliable.

Janet does not like the woke (The Australian, October 24-25 2020). “Diversity and inclusion is a new religion” she, Janet Albrechtsen, says... After years, I mean centuries, of oppression of minorities — blacks, gays, Jews, Martians — we’re now letting them take over our gentile life… Or are we? Even with presenting episodic examples of woke intrusion in our bourgeois-lined shoeboxes, she is not convincing anyone about her views of the general crappus.

Through fire, coronavirus and Scott Morrison promotional shoots, the curse lives on: one Pascoe of each generation fated to play New Year’s Eve stenographer for the contents of a Satanic sea chest, the result of a Cornish pirate captain’s pact with the devil as the tide rose above him on a Caribbean sandbar.

ASSANGE SHOULD BE FREED but pardon him if you must, Mr Biden…

If Biden does not drop charges against Julian Assange, he will show that he is an arsehole, possibly worse than Donald Trump. Gus Leonisky.

EU off-the-hook, UK swallows the stinker...

hook and stinker   Britain’s trawlermen have been governed by the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy since 1973. But the Brexit trade deal agreed last week has changed all that, but how will it work?

the way the economy works...

The central, befuddling economic reality of the United States at the close of 2020 is that everything is terrible in the world, while everything is wonderful in the financial markets.

happy new year!

I decided to make a cartoon to wish you a happy new year via my friend, Jules, who in his inimitable way summed up the politics of the season in an email. “May your fields of noodles be as productive as ours…”.
