Tom Winnifrith postcard: Jeremy Hunt's lie - there is NO case for not ending charitable status for public schools

Mr Hunt lied about what would happen if he ended the status which would have brought in material revenues. There is no case whatsoever for not ending such status and in doing so Mr Hunt protects the rich while the poor feel the squeeze. Now, of all times, this anomaly should be ended. The RSPCA is a charity. Woodlarks is a Charity. Eton College or Warwick School should not be allowed to claim charitable status.

Surely everyone can see that Russia has a legitimate point over #fakenews at the ghastly Daily Telegraph?

Yesterday I made the mistake of pointing out that when Ukraine’s President and his fellow leaders of the second most corrupt country in Europe (after Russia) said that a Russian missile had hit Poland, killing two Poles, and that NATO must collectively respond, this was a lie. Not just any old lie but a lie that could have lead to World War Three so a rather dangerous one. Naturally, on twitter and elsewhere, folks responded by saying that I must be a Putin apologist, supporting Russia’s invasion and it shooting down an airliner in 2014.  Of course, I am not an apologist and I do not support either, wholly unwarranted, military action. But that sort of smear is what happens when you write facts exposing folks who are lying in 2022. It is what always happens when you are not part of the GroupThink. The wretched Daily Telegraph, one upon a time a half decent newspaper, is now part of the GroupThink…

Pssst Don’t tell the BBC – but the Dems are about to lose the House!

The BBC has reported every Democrat Triumph from the mid terms, before during and after it happened. That is to say retaining control of the Senate, though it may still be 50/50 after the Georgia run off on December 6. But on a night when the Republicans won more state governors and the popular vote there is still the matter of the House which for the past two years has been run by the Dems… All bar 12 contests have now been called and…

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel – getting in early with Christmas Puddings

On Christmas Day we will be hosting my parents in law, my sister in law and her two kids and my daughter’s godmother I who is joining us from New York for what she terms “the holidays” as in “happy holidays”. So that makes ten around the table. The godmother and I shall be doing the cooking.

Guess who, blood stained Fenian scumbag, Gerry Adams is supporting tomorrow night at the World Cup?

With neither of the two Irish sides in Qatar for the World Cup it must be hard for blood soaked IRA, oops sorry Sinn Fein, celebrity Gerry Adams to know who to support. But maybe not as the old bastard has taken to twitter to give us all a clue as you can see below.

NHS Nurses - greedy, deceitful and shameless witches

You are told by the BBC and the rest of the liberal media that nurses are grossly underpaid and that their decision to walk out on cancer and other patients leaving them to die is thus all the fault of the wicked Tories. But here in chart form are the facts….

Tuvalu PM and Avaaz: more climate change grifters, happy to ignore facts as they seek to raid your wallet

To be fair Avaaz is not just a climate change grifter. It will spam millions of folks on any woke issue getting them to sign pointless petitions or to hand over their hard earned to support bloated salaries, sorry I meant laudable campaigning.  It is an all round grifter. A recent Avaaz spam is from the Prime Minster of Tuvalu. Now he really is a climate change grifter. He wants western money as reparations for our carbon crimes.

#DemocracyWins trends on twitter – whatever

In the woke echo chamber that is twitter news that the Democrats will almost certainly still control the Senate is greeted with #DemocracyWins. Hmmm.

Tom Winnifrith podcast - did the Democrats really win the mid-terms as the BBC is telling us today

I look at the House, the Senate, the probable outcomes on both and what that means for the radical liberal agenda the BBC so desperately wants to see pursued. I also look at the popular vote ( remember that from 2016?) and what that tells us. I look at who is likely to run for President in 2024 and what that may mean for the House and Senate that year. The man whose name I always forget ( long covid?) is Joe Manchin – my sort of Democrat.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - the school celebrates Wales in the World Cup day

My son Joshua has now spent well over half of his life in Wales. And, though he was born in England to parents who support Northern Ireland and England respectively, he considers himself a proud Welshman. He leads us as we say grace in Welsh each night and there are more and more Welsh phrases exchanged between him and me as I also start to grapple with the language from hell. Today his school is celebrating the fact that Wales has made it through to the World Cup finals, by everyone wearing red tops.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - a home produced supper

Ok, there were also some sausages not home produced but elsewhere you see beetroot (still being harvested) which we eat boiled, roast spuds (still being harvbested) and roast butternut squash which I harvested a few weeks ago and which are stored in the larder. I’d happily eat this lot without a meat dish but the Mrs and the kids are very much carnivores.

Britain needs to give a trillion quid to poor countries for our leading role in Global warming – fact free bollocks

The good news for the Charity War on Want, which has made this ludicrous claim, is that Scotland has committed to pay £2 million as compensation for its historic carbon emissions to poor countries around the world. As soon as it can scrounge the money off England under the Barnet formula, the cheque is on its way. The bad news is that the other £999.998 billion that War on Want reckons the UK owes is not on its way as we are already almost bankrupt. Mind you the useless Tories egged on by the BBC and others are still  thinking about it.

The liberal media runs scared of the mid-terms Red Wave – denial on BBC Woman’s Hour

The liberal media is now waking up to the idea that, tomorrow, American voters will use the mid-terms to blow an enormous raspberry to their man creepy Joe Biden and to the whole ultra woke agenda of their beloved Democrats.  Well, that is to say they know that the GOP will hand out an enormous whipping but they cannot admit why.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - bonfire prepared in pouring rain

If I am a bit slow this morning it is because friends C & D led me astray last night after our bonfire party with the home made plum and damson vodka. The whole event went down well with much praise for my portuguese stew, damson and plum vodka crumble and ice cream for the kids and mulled wine and vodkas for ther grown ups. But as but as Joshua and I built the fire with a stack of old 1970s doors that were left lying in a barn, it just tipped it down with rain. He hid in the shed, I laboured on. I rather worried that it would not light.

Shameful: The Daily Mail delights in reporting almost 1000 Russian soldiers killed in one day

As always in commenting on events in Ukraine I have to flag up at the start that Russia was wrong to invade since in the current febrile atmosphere not doing so sees one branded a Putin apologist. And that means that you are questioned if you dare to challenge what is almost certainly fake news and, on this conflict, in Briitain, the Daily Mail is the biggest villain on that score.
