We Con the World – a classic music video to send to any Guardian reading, Israel haters you know

The latest series of the right-wing Israeli satirical show, Latma, has just drawn to a close and an email on that matter reminds me of the show’s greatest video: We Con the World, a parody of the US famine relief video dealing with “aid” ships heading to Gaza from Turkey. If you are reading this on a British University campus and want to avoid being no-platformed by the tolerant left, I’d switch the volume off now.

San Leon Energy and the missing dividends – does Computershare realise it’s not 1974 any more?

Do not get me wrong, I am told that there were some great things about the 1970s: The Sweeney, Starsky & Hutch, pre AIDS casual sex, The Harlem Globetrotters, Star Wars, Abba, the rise of Maggie… the list goes on an on. But while we may yearn for much of that, surely we do not want to go back to a world where we receive payments by cheques sent in the post? That is more George & Mildred than Debbie Harry.  Over at registrars Computershare it seems that time has stood still and they are still watching and laughing at Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce.


My pension and other loyal shareholders in this company should have received a bumper 6p per share special dividend in San Leon Energy (SLE) on 29 May.

Nikki Haley and Donald Trump on fire - why indeed give taxpayers cash to America bashers and Jew Haters?

The US Congress has been demanding that America move its Israel embassy to Jerusalem for two decades. The American People overwhelmingly support it. And in Donald Trump the US finally has a President who on this matter delivered as he promised. Bush, Obama and Clinton just promised (to win votes) and reneged. Where America sites its embassy in the only democracy in the Middle East its business.
