PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Did The BBC present a "balanced case on Hitler? So why does it try to treat Mugabe impartially?

Is Mugabe a hero or a villain? For you and I, the case of Africa's Hitler is clear cut. But not for the BBC as you can see below. That it even needs to ask the question "Mugabe: hero or villain" show show utterly rotten the State funded broadcaster has become. We could start with the genocide...

Matching Granny Lesbia! Travel glory and a war story

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

My father's mother Lesbia Winnifrith (nee Cochrane) was noted for many things, not least foir me being - as are all Cochranes - a great Hellenophile.  Playing rugby with the boys at the Dragon School, being pretty useful at cricket and also the undisputedly best player of mass family games of Racing Demon were some of those things I remember. There is a story from the war, involving travel from when my father, aged three, returned from evacuation in Westmoreland.

Video: Keith Neumeyer: The Numbers Sound Crazy, but I Predict $8,000 Gold & $130 Silver

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Yes it does sound crazy but we live in a crazy old world don't we? Keith Neumeyer argues that the reason the resource markets are lagging is due to institutions not entering the metal market.  The this is that until there is a crack in the major markets, we will not see institutional money flow into the mining equities. The market is quite similar to the year 2000 when it was flat and then took off. History is repeating itself. We need some sort of correction and sane-ness to enter the market. He feels the coming bull market will be quite impressive.

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

Shares in Mkango Resources (MKA) rocketed last week after it announced a tie up with Singapore based Noble Group which committed Noble to invest £12 million to get a 49% stake in Mkango's Songwe asset.

Historian Niall Ferguson explains exactly why you should fear a stock market and economic collapse

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I have always been a fan of Ferguson. His book Empire treats an ancestor (Ilbert) very kindly but it is as an economic historian where he really excels. Unlike Vince Cable who has predicted 17 of the last 4 recessions, Ferguson gets it right. He was one of those who called 2008 absolutely correctly. And he is now warning of a new disaster ahead making specific predictions.

Carol Cadwalladr, the death threats, the Guardian and the Russian meddling in Brexit canard

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

I see that Guardian journalist Carol Cadwalladr is complaining that she has received death threats after writing what she, without any justification, claimed to be an expose of Russian meddling in the Brexit vote. Let us be clear: Carol is talking shite on the Russians, as she does on almost everything, as I noted here, but death threats against journalists are always utterly wrong. I speak as a journalist who has received death threats.
