The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Thought for the Day…

Margaret Thatcher used to say that “nothing is more insidious than a fashionable consensus.” And “surely there is something logically suspect about a solution which is always correct, whatever the problem.1

Nothing is more comfortable than a consensus that has the answer to every problem. It is as if Karl Marx’s historical determinism had been transmogrified directly into the brains of Globalists, particularly the neo-liberal sort.
