Why is Britain Selling Weapons to our Enemies?

Next Year in Jerusalem

Firstly, that very strange girl from Israel won the Eurovision Song Contest. Not a song or a style that appeals to me, but nonetheless, well done.

Terrifying New Data on Sea Level Rise

Terrifying to climate alarmists, that is.

Police Priorities

“A driver who flipped the bird at a traffic camera is about to be a jailbird. A court in England has sentenced Timothy Hill, 67, to eight months in prison after he was caught using an illegal laser jammer to avoid speeding tickets.” OK, Timothy Hill is an idiot. And probably not a very nice …
