In an amusing article in the Spectator (21 ii), Rod Liddle conjectured that the wave of obesity among children was chiefly due to lack of exercise - resulting chiefly from parental paedohysteria and schoolteachers being reluctant to take gym lessons and supervise children in the showers.


Talk of the need to restrict/control/manage immigration increased, with intellectuals such as Blairite Prospect magazine editor David Goodhart(full reprint in Guardian 24 ii, which admitted "a bitter debate among progressive thinkers") and the `Conservative' leader Michael Howard surfacing with pale imitations of what White Londoners had been saying for years - though Howard felt obliged simultaneously to denounce the British National Party as "a bunch of thugs" (in fact the BNP's Cambridge-educated leader's only conviction had been for speech crime under Britain's infamously oppressive Race Relations Act).

The new trend drew down the wrath of the Campaign for Racial Equality's Black boss, Trevor Phillips, who wailed in the Guardian (16 ii):"..the liberal Powellites are gaining support in high places. The new ideas are inspired by the work of the American sociologist Robert Putnam, a Downing Street favourite. Putnam purports to show that dynamic, diverse communities are more fragmented than stable, monoethnic ones." Labour MP Keith Vaz (formerly Minister for Europe) recorded his own wish to keep Britain's doors open to all and sundry (Independent, 22 ii); and one A. Sivanandan, `Director of the Institute of Race Relations' complained about Goodhart in an article published by the Guardian (26

For his pains, editor Goodhart was hauled on to BBC Radio 4's flagship `Today' programme to confront an Indian member of the House of Lords who, like Phillips, objected to `genteel racism' - though the diplomatic Indian settled for saying merely that solidarity was not incompatible with mass immigration since people liked nothing better than welcoming diverse immigrants and seeing them become welfare-dependent. The Independent (22 ii) said Cabinet nerves were "on edge" over immigration as the left began to argue about Goodhart; and the Guardian (18 ii) promisingly indicated that its correspondents were divided roughly 2-1 against Goodhart. Meantime the Sun (24 ii), the Daily Mail (25 ii), the Daily Express (25 ii) and the Daily Telegraph (24 ii) continued to confront feeble government changes in immigration policy which it said would do next to nothing to prevent a wave of gypsy immigration from Eastern Europe in May.

{The strange thing about immigration junkies is that they never identify any countries to which Brits can flee and find a refuge from socialism in free and sensible education for children, health care provided by English speakers, and non-bankrupting provision for old age. Equally, a strange thing about anti-immigration writers is their failure to realize that no amount of tinkering - withdrawing some or even all welfare benefits - is likely to stop people from all round the world heading for the one really nice and successful country having a boomtown economy. As top Times columnist Simon Jenkins pointed out (25 ii), the insistence of successive governments on paying for 40% of Britain's brightest and best to study postmodernism and learn PeeCee at universities means the country is sorely short of plumbers, roofers and electricians so naturally sucks in labour. - Jenkins only needed to add the other reversible horror story: the refusal of Britain's feminists to breed which could be rectified by providing crˆches in schools and universities and cancelling university fees for pregnant girls and mothers.}

{David Goodhart received support from centrist top broadcaster and columnist John Humphrys (Sunday Times, 22 ii). Humphrys said it must be possible to favour immigration restrictions without being accused of `racism' and concluded "If that makes me guilty in Phillips' phrase of "genteel racism" - so be it." Goodhart's article contained many interesting empirical nuggets, e.g. that US states that are more racially diverse spend less on welfare, and that, because immigrants themselves age, Britain would need 60million immigrants to maintain the age structure of the population over the next half-century. Goodhart also urged a `two tier' welfare system - allowing immigrants to opt out of high taxation and welfare provision and have a less committing second-class citizenship [as suggested in TgF NewsLetters and McDougall NewsLetters (e.g. 28 iv 1998)] or even just obliging them to do without the vote and expensive welfare services.

In the Spectator (28 ii), Goodhart was backed by political editor Peter Oborne who pointed out that immigration was making Brits pay for the African AIDS crisis while benefiting chiefly the rich and big employers wanting cheap labour. Immigrants would be acceptable so long as they had clear duties as well as `rights', said practical Anatole Kaletsky in the Times: "Britain needs neither more border guards nor more handwringing about the "progressive dilemma". What it needs is better community policing, tougher law enforcement, more rigorous education, and identity cards to combat welfare fraud. If he wants to win support for the welfare state, as well as for open borders, Mr Blair should spend less time listening to Labour intellectuals and the tabloid press and more to Mr Blunkett."

A move away from globalization towards nationalism was suggested to be well underway by top Canadian intellectual John Ralston Saul writing in Harper's magazine (March,popularizing an article published in Financial Review) - pointing to countries like Malaysia and Brazil having recommenced government regulation of the economy and to the USA's near-single-handed nationalism in how it handled 9/11. It certainly seemed likely that without distinct nations and national arrangements, globalization would logically proceed to global monopoly - as had already near-happened with Microsoft.}

{As to the relevance of criminal convictions to suitability as an MP, the Labour Party in East Reading made clear it saw no connection when it deselected its apparently unduly Blairite sitting MP (who had favoured the Iraq war) and replaced her as their candidate for the next General Election with a homosexual man who had two convictions for gross indecency.}

{British developments were summarized in the left-wing Mother Jones magazine which noted that nationalists in Scotland did not agree with London's anxieties (27 ii) - they wanted more Eastern European immigration, perhaps preferring that to the arrival of Blacks, Pakistanis or English from London?! The top Arab newspaper Aljazeerah also cautioned against Britain's "anti-immigration hysteria" and the role of David Goodhart in fuelling it (21 ii).}


Yale University's top scholar and the world's greatest Shakespeare expert, Harold Bloom, in his seventies, was accused in New York magazine (23 ii) of putting his hand on the inside thigh of best-selling and best-looking feminastie authoress Naomi Wolf when the busty (C-cup) telegenic girlie had him as her unofficial weekly tutor twenty years previously. Apparently the thickset ooops Falstaffian professor, then 53 and a referee for Naomi's Rhodes Scholarship application, had stayed behind after a candlelit supper party at the (Naomi admits) "sick with excitement" Naomi's home to read her poetry and had drunk most of a bottle of sack ooops amontillado sherry which he had brought with him. But as Naomi went to hand over the poetry, Bloom's hand had another idea. After Bloom "encroached on" her, Naomi supposedly vomited after which Bloom corked his bottle and left with it, throwing in that Wolf was a "deeply troubled girl." In a move that might finally split femininnies from the rest of the liberal-left -- and surely from Blacks - Wolf, 42, said she was telling her tale because she had heard many subsequent allegations against the mighty and charming professor who some say could fankly have any undergraduette he wanted and name his favoured position.

Yale University told Wolf it would not pursue her complaint since it had a statute of limitations requiring whiners to come forward within two years of the events that allegedly discombobulated them. Tough lesbo-feminist Camille Paglia, 56, and also once Bloom's student, declared: "It really smacks of the Salem witch hunts and all the accompanying hysteria. Naomi Wolf, for her entire life, has been batting her eyes and bobbing her boobs and made a profession of courting male attention by flirting and offering her sexual allure. At the beginning of the 90's, people said, `Oh, Naomi Wolf, this great thinker!' But what she's managed to do in 10 years is marginalize herself as a chronicler of teenage angst. She doesn't want to leave that magic island when she was the ripening teenager. How many books, how many articles, Naomi, are you going to impose on us so we have to be dragged back to your teenage heartbreak years? This is regressive. It's childish. Move on! Get on to menopause next!" Paglia further accused Wolf of having greeted one interviewer wearing "a pair of flimsy see-through orange harem pants, scarcely obscuring black panties" (Sunday Times, 22 ii).

Feminist Katie Roiphe, author of a ground-breaking book on date-rape challenging the notion of women as victims, said: "I find it distasteful. Whether or not it happened, taking on somebody whose health is failing strikes me as a little desperate. It's completely sensible to have a statute of limitations. Even criminals are entitled to some protection." The London novelist Howard Jacobson recalled that, in his early career as an English lecturer in pre-Dworkin 1970's, affairs were the norm as feminists sought to prove themselves by sleeping around. "As often as not we were the quarry," he wrote. "I say `we' because sex with students was more or less a departmental affair. Most philosophers did it, a goodly number of geographers did it, not quite so many historians, but in English literature we all did it."

This account of libidinous feminism of the 1970s in contrast with victim feminism of the 1980s was confirmed by Canadian columnist Margaret Wente; and in the Guardian, columnist Zoe Williams said Wolf had done feminism no favours. Camille Paglia, too, said many girls were at it with staff during her own time in Yale of the 1970s, and she criticized Wolf saying, "Feminists like her are trying to somehow reshape institutions so they are like nurseries, a comfy zone for White, middle-class girls." Ms Wolf made her name with the book The Beauty Myth after a year at Oxford University. In 2003, Ms Wolf (married and with children) consulted her lawyers after doing an interview with the British pseudo-Black spoof TV presenter Ali G who teased her that if women were allowed equal rights at work, "they'll want them at home" as well. She claimed she had been used for racist humour.

In 2000, Wolf earned $15,000 monthly for advising Democrat presidential candidate Al Gore: she told him to use `earth' colours so as to be more of an `alpha male' and thus appeal to female voters. Wolf also accused Yale divinity professor Gilbert Bond of `sexually abusing' an undergraduette whom he was mentoring - in that case a lawsuit was pending. Wolf was rubbished in the Washington Post (25 ii) by centre-right columnist Anne Applebaum; but otherwise the American press remained strangely incurious, not even discovering whether Naomi had been wearing jeans or a skirt at the moment of Professor Bloom's "encroachment" on her thigh. The Guardian (26 ii)surveyed six leading femininnies and found them 2-1 pro-Wolf and especially anti-Paglia and generally bitchy, and female American bloggers `Crafty Librarian' (23 ii) and `Soggy' (23 ii) backed her, and she claimed to be "flooded by a torrent" of supportive e-mails (25 ii); but opinions at History News Network were divided (27 ii), Meghan O'Rourke accused Wolf of "irresponsibility" and "hysteria" in the U.S. magazine Slate (25 ii), feminist blogger Jenny Weiner called her "silly" (24 ii), correspondents at Independent Women's Forum said the "lipstick feminist" "may have gone too far this time" (20 ii)and made fun of her call from God to reveal that Bloom had got out of reading her poetry (24 ii), British columnist Jenny Hjul called Wolf "babyish" and said she had evidently learned nothing from her encounter with Ali G (Scotsman, 26 ii) and the Spectator also pooh-poohed Wolf (28 ii).

A 2004 student of Bloom's at Yale said she didn't find him at all `sexist' - though apparently he called all his girl students "sweetheart".. (Yale Daily News, 26 ii). A friend of Professor Bloom claimed that the affair between Wolf and Bloom had been quite something and that Wolf had visited Bloom's home on three occasion to leave her erotic poetry for him (New York Observer, 26 ii). By 28 ii, columnist Caroline Overington was writing for Sydney Morning Herald that Wolf had indeed succeeded in stimulating outrage - "most of it at herself (including some from the New Statesman's Cristina Odone who had written of "Wolf's most unforgiveable disservice to feminism"); but Overington's colleague at the Herald, Julia Baird (28 ii),felt some sympathy for Wolf being attacked as a vamp by Camille Paglia so there seemed a reasonable chance the argument would run and run, splitting feminism irrevocably in the process.

13 ii 2004
Dear Editors,
I was amused to see your reporter Sam Friedman trying to mislead us into believing that the University of Edinburgh is on some kind of a roll, using ancient figures of Edinburgh Nobelists (Student, 11 ii 04, 'Edinburgh top of the world'). The fact is that Edinburgh University enjoyed a period of greatness in the twentieth century -- making up for its earlier discriminatory failures to employ Scotland's best philosopher, David Hume, and the discoverer of electromagnetism, James Clerk Maxwell (after which pair of geniuses the University scandalously names two of its ghastly buildings). Today, however, our sad University has for several years not managed to get into the U.K.'s top ten. In June, 2003, The University of Edinburgh sank to a new low in overall U.K. university ratings, just 18th=, along with Southampton University, in a meta-analytic `Table of Tables' compiled by the Daily Telegraph (25 vi, p.17). This Table of Tables combined rankings from surveys conducted for the Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times, the Times, and the Sunday Times and further threw in rankings from a survey of employers of graduates.

Far from being 'top of the world', Edinburgh University is the only major U.K. university to have been sinking rapidly over the past decade -- despite its students having entry credentials comparable to those which obtain in St Andrews (which has overtaken it as Scotland's top uni). When will Edinburgh students wake up to what has been happening? -- The process was begun by the postmodern multicultural theologian, Principal Stewart Sutherland, who did not believe in race or IQ or any other kind of inconvenient truth; and it is now being set in concrete by a diminutive new Irish Principal, possessed of a cockney accent, whose bombastic talents and simplistic egalitarian beliefs are more suited to his being the head of a primary school than to running a university that could ever compete with Harvard, Yale, Oxford or Cambridge.
I am yours sincerely, -- Chris Brand.

This letter was published by Student (18 ii) along with a comment to the effect that I was `controversial', an `IQ realist', `disgraced', `crazy' and `loopy' but to be congratulated on keeping in touch. "Big shout out in da house, yo" was how they put it.


Showing the spirit of national liberal Pim Fortuyn to be alive and well, Holland announced it would expel 26,000 failed asylum, stop Dutch citizens under 24 from bringing in spouses from abroad, introduce a compulsory ID card for over 12 and allow welfare benefits only to immigrants who learned Dutch. Rotterdam (by 2000 a half non-White city) announced it would accept no more poor or unemployed immigrants for five years. Said council leader Ronald Sorensen, "Before, people just turned a blind eye; but not any more. It is the death of political correctness." According to the Times (14 ii), even left-wing politicians were coming to accept `the new politics', which included crackdowns on public nuisances and the immediate closure of cannabis caf‚s if hard drugs were found on the premises. The Dutch moves followed an all-party parliamentary report which concluded that Holland's attempt to create an integrated multi-ethnic society had "failed."


After widely publicized allegations that A-Level exams were too easy, universities said they might undertake their own testing and Education Minister Charles Clarke said he would think of providing four `tiers' of education for 14-19 year-olds of differing abilities - allowing them to exit with `entry', `foundation', `intermediate' or `advanced' diplomas, apparently allowing a choice between `academic' and `vocational' paths. He further said "talented" children would be encouraged to join classes of older students, and students who were struggling would be allowed to give themselves more time by joining younger classes (Times, 18 ii). (The 2000 edition of THE g FACTOR, which contained the proposal of `track choice' as its major educational recommendation (in its Chapter 4), is available FREE at


In a new excess of PeeCee and amidst howls of protest from the Church of Scotland and even from Jewish and Muslim groups, Edinburgh University announced it would ban Christian prayers at its graduation ceremonies.


Some 150 aborigines from the Sydney ghetto of Redfern (famous for drug dealing) showed their attitude to multicultural Australia by injuring fifty policemen (hospitalizing many) and torching cars and a train station in a nine-hour battle (in which rioters threw bricks and Molotov cocktails) after a 17-year-old Aborigine had fallen and impaled himself through his neck on a metal fence and died at the culmination of what may have been a police chase (though police denied he was being chased). Redfern aboriginal elder Lyle Munro told the crowd gathered at the scene of the riot they should be proud that Redfern's young people had "stood up to police." But Labour Party Opposition leader Mark Latham denounced aborigine parents who had allowed children under ten to join in the rioting.

As a police sweep for suspects began, both an aunt and a girlfriend of the dead teenager were arrested and charged. Australia's loopy left expressed fury at politicians talking of `individual responsibility' for the rioting rather than blaming capitalism, conservatism, British imperialism and racism.

{Aborigines make up 400,000 of Australia's 20 million population and are notorious for ineducability, criminality, drunkenness, welfare dependency, early deaths, marital violence and child abuse. Aborigine IQ has sometimes been estimated to be below 70. The houses in the Redfern ghetto (called `The Block') were compulsorily purchased for aborigines in the 1970s with a grant from the federal government in an attempt to alleviate homelessness and other problems among Sydney's aboriginal population. Involving "bright, modern and multi-unit blocks", Redfern became nationally known as the major place where aborigines could search for lost relatives and where government ministers could go to apologize for their White ancestors' `genocide'; but it went into steep decline in the 1990s as aboriginal leaders bickered among themselves. }


To the acclaim of London School supporters everywhere, the silver-haired Emeritus Professor Richard Lynn (formerly of Ulster but lately of Gloucestershire) announced his engagement to ex-headmistress Mrs Joyce Walters (of Somerset). `Spanker Lynn', as he became known in the McDougall NewsLetters (when he joined with me in issuing rebuffs to American social psychologists who claimed childhood spankings led to conservatism - little heeding the cases of the mightily abused Lenin and Stalin) richly deserved some love in his life after ten years of widowhood and very hard work for the London School on his books Dysgenics, Eugenics and IQ and the Wealth of Nations (still scheduled for review in the journal Heredity). Richard is the proud possessor of an early Private Eye cover where race-realist Enoch Powell stretches out his hands to either side of him, in the classic manner of the angler boasting in a pub about his latest catch, and says "They have them this big." So Joyce will never lack for entertainment.


Empowerment of individuals and families, urged by Professor Julian Le Grand, the Richard Titmuss Professor of Social Policy at the London School of Economics (and in internet McDougall NewsLetters, passim), received high praise from the sage Political Editor of the London Times, Peter Riddell. At present, decisions about health and education are made chiefly by politicians, experts and bureaucrats; but Le Grand's new book Motivation, Agency and Public Policy provides careful argument that neoliberalism (even if monitored) would be better.

Joining psychologist John Ray's effort, Londoner/countryman Graham Asher began supplying anti-peecee mat‚riel, starting with a splendid story that the New Zealand Government had banned the saying of (Christian) grace at its dinners but was spending money like water flying aboriginal `leaders' around the world to debug its embassies of `evil spirits' which upset Maoris.


Following the death in a `medium secure unit' in Britain's National Health Service of a violent and drug-using Rastafarian drummer, an enquiry was promptly mounted to `root out racism.' Imagine investigator Sir John Blofeld's shock at being told that Black patients show more schizophrenia, need larger doses of anti-psychotic medication and are routinely regarded as "more aggressive, more alarming, more dangerous and more difficult to treat" than Whites (Times, 7 ii)! Eventually he decided to brand the NHS as "institutionally racist" and urge it to throw most of its Black psychotics on to the streets ooops into the community.

{It was not stated whether Sir John -- evidently intent on aping scourge-of-the-Met, Sir William Macpherson of Cluny -- had considered that the reappearance on British streets of thousands of Black lunatics was unlikely to do much for race relations....}


Intelligence got a rare mention on British TV when Channel 5 (8 ii, 20:30pm) followed the case of a woman (a nurse, wife/secretary and mother of three) born with hydrocephaly which - after the excess spinal fluid had been drained at 9 months - left her with a hole the size of a clementine in the middle of her head and a cortex at some points only 1cm thick. The lady's IQ turned out to be 113, and - luckily for the London School (esp. Phil Rushton) scientists in Cleveland, Ohio discovered that her brain weight was roughly normal.

The Sun newspaper (9 ii) revealed that, thanks to Labour's failure to legislate properly against terror conspirators and troughmen lawyers, mad obese hook-fisted West-hating Muslim preacherman Abu Hamza was scheduled to cost Britain millions of pounds over seven years as smart-alec human rights lawyers would work to prevent his deportation. Hamza's family was receiving œ1,030.65 a week benefit. It also cost U.K. taxpayers œ250,000 a year to police his preaching, œ500,000 for MI5 surveillance and œ250,000 annually in legal fees in the effort to kick him out.


New research in Scotland found a big boost for reading in children taught by `synthetic phonics' - a scheme similar to my own that was made available to McDNL readers in the issue for 9 June, 1998. Using marked plastic letters with magnets on the back, children are encouraged to selected the right marked letter to represent a particular sound (e.g. distinguishing between the `long' and the `short' forms of the letter A) and then go on to make up words from the phonemes (Sunday Times, 8 ii; Times 9 ii). Other research from England reported that teenage boys do better at English if they are taught in single-sex classes (


Following the deaths of 19 Chinese illegal immigrants slaving for Snakehead and/or Triad gangs as cockle pickers in treacherously tidal Morecambe Bay, the first leading article in Sunday Times declared U.K. immigration policy simply "a mess."


A new book on race, Race: the Reality of Human Differences, by anthropologist Vincent Sarich and Skeptic editor Frank Miele (Westview, $27-50), stirred fury at Nature (5 ii) where reviewer Robert N. Proctor (a historian at Penn State University) called it "disturbing", "bombastic" and "overstated" and blamed it for using the work of "raciologists" Arthur Jensen and Philippe Rushton.

But getting real about race was beginning to appeal to Blacks themselves, said Black columnist Tony Sewell in the Sunday Times (8 ii). Apparently British Blacks were becoming impressed by the escalating rate of gun crime among their number - and since British Blacks shoot mainly other Blacks the phenomenon could scarcely be blamed on Whites. British Blacks were also noting the yawning class difference within the Black community - showing that Blacks could get ahead if they behaved themselves. In the USA, wrote Sewell, Berkeley linguistics professor John McWhorter had felt bold enough to blame Black failures on a "wariness of books and learning [which is frankly] ingrained" - though of course he dared not mention that anti-academic attitudes spring chiefly from low IQ in Blacks as in Whites. Likewise, the new book by liberal-left eminences Abigail Thernstrom (Manhattan Institute) and Stephan Thernstrom (Harvard), No Excuses: Closing the Racial Gap in Learning, dismisses most conventional environmental explanations for Black educational failure, blames Black culture and urges a return to giving Black children traditional discipline in schools (including school uniforms, Saturday classes, detentions and expulsions).


Charles Murray's massive book, Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950 (HarperCollins, $29.95) was given a seal of approval by one of Britain's top historians, the biographer, author of Hitler and Churchill and TV-presenter-to-be Andrew Roberts (Times Literary Supplement, 6 ii 04). Most of Murray's selected geniuses were `dead White European males', coming in particular from the hexagonal region bordered by Naples, Marseilles, Dorset, Glasgow, the northern tip of Denmark and Wroclaw. Roberts (who simmered up at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge - where I gave the lecture `Ten Arguments for Race Realism' in 1997) specially noted that "the African contribution to human progress since 800B.C. - despite its vast population - has been almost minimal" and said that Murray's work would long provide "a central thesis" for students of man's intellectual history. Further approving Murray's elitism, Roberts added that today, 30% of Nobel prizewinners are Jewish though Jews are only 0.5% of the world population.

Following an amusing article by Matthew Parris in the Spectator complaining about confusion over whether a week begins with Monday or Sunday (i.e. about whether Sunday is a ‘sabbath’ as instituted in the Old Testament), I wrote to the Speccie as follows:

Pace Matthew Parris (Spectator, 31 January), Christianity did not "yield" to anyone in selecting its holy day -- simply, the day of the week on which Jesus supposedly rose from the dead. The reason Emperor Constantine liked the Christians (apart from seeing their valour under torture) was that he thought their choice of Sunday as their holy day meant that they, like him, worshipped the sun god, Sol Invictus. Constantine further believed Christians would recognize him as God's major representative on earth -- which they soon did, letting him shape their creed and encouraging him to raid pagan temples for the wherewithal to build his magnificent capital of Constantinople. Constantine did for Christianity what Messrs Clinton and Blair did for feminism: he took a disorganized religion and turned it into a political power base. After years of vicious persecution, the Christians seized their opportunity; but they yielded to no-one.
Sincerely, -- Chris Brand, Edinburgh.


Oscar-nominated Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies, who played a warrior dwarf in ‘Lord of the Rings,’ spoke out against the growing Islamicization of the West – eliciting a finger-wagging from the peecee-left Observer (1 ii) and the Muslim Council of Britain when they found his remarks to American journalists had been taken up with enthusiasm by the British National Party.


A spirited attempt at babe-bagging was made by Gabon’s President, Omar Bongo, 60, when he persuaded luscious long-faced lovely Miss Peru, Ivette Santa Maria, 22, to cross the Atlantic to participate in a Miss Humanity Pageant he claimed to be organizing. Ready as any supermodel to appear obliging to the Black race, Ivette was soon on a plane to Gabon where she found herself whisked to the presidential palace to meet Mr Big in an oak-panelled room. Yet no sooner did the President arrive than the panelling slid aside to reveal a king size bed all ready for action. Guards made no attempt to detain Ivette when she fled in panic, but it took her two weeks to scrape together enough cash to pay for a flight back to Lima. Gabon’s president became well known in 1992-3 when a French couturier revealed that he organized regular flights for French prostitutes to meet the ever-bonk-ready Bongo.

Britain's feminastish experts in child abuse suffered a blow as the attorney general, Lord Goldman, opened inquiries into thousands of cases in which parents had been convicted of murdering their infants. Evidently fear of being insufficiently abusohysterical had led courts and juries to accept astonishingly low standards of evidence in cases of alleged infanticide - the uncorroborated evidence of just one `medical expert' (often a Prof. Sir Roy Meadow) was enough to secure a conviction. Often no attention had been paid to what conceivable motive mothers might have had for killing their own child, for the experts (esp. Prof. Meadow) suggested that the `murderer' "suffered Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy", i.e. wanted all the attention she would receive if her child suddenly died.

In the Sunday Telegraph (25 i), columnist Dr James Le Fanu found Lord Goldman's news "exhilarating" and expressed the hope that some of the daft `experts' (esp. Prof. Meadow) would themselves be charged with wasting police and court time and even given "mandatory life sentences" for their self-chosen mission.


In a fine tribute at once to the importance of IQ and of keeping Blacks away from political power, the Sunday Telegraph (25 i) announced that life expectancy in Zimbabwe after two decades of ape-man rule had dropped to 36, that there was mass starvation and that the only drug available in most hospitals was aspirin. Lynn & Vanhanen' s book IQ and the Wealth of Nations estimated Zimbabwe's IQ at 66. Black President Robert Mugabe was denounced as "evil" by the Black Archbishop Ncuba of Bulawayo.


As London's Metropolitan Police took time off from catching Black muggers to ponder whether Robert Kilroy-Silk had been guilty of `racism' when accusing modern Arab countries of contributing little to civilization, Private Eye came up with some splendid race realism in K-S's 2003 articles for the Sunday Express:

"Africa's plight is mostly the fault of Africans. Most of what is good and decent in Africa has been provided by Europe and the United States." (9 iii 2003)

"The orgy of thieving in Iraq has more to do with the character of the people than the absence of restraining troops." (4 v 2003)

Certainly sentiments which this diarist can support! And further support for K-S came from the Sydney Morning Herald (27 i, `Cowering under Islam's sway').


Fat and fanatical bin Linerist Abu Hamza (who sports a hook instead of a hand) was shown what British people think of him when the Sun (26 i) announced that 98% of its 146,000 callers had voted to boot him out of Britain. The Sun further discovered The Hook's son working in local government employment in London (as a waste disposal operative -- œ220 for a 40-hour week) despite having served a three-year prison term in the Yemen for plotting to bomb American and British targets. Within a few more days, the Sun had 200,000 readers behind it demanding Hamza's deportation - to which Hamza replied by denouncing football and nudity and telling Sun journalists "Your nation will be crushed."


Psychologists who like to babble about language being more important and more basic to humanity than the g factor went into shock as the BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Times revealed an African grey parrot who has a 1,000-word vocabulary and uses grammar (including three tenses). The parrot can persist with its point through an argument, e.g. concluding one session where a trip in a car was refused him, "Hurry up, wanna go in a car! Remember? We were in a car." On another occasion, when shown a picture of another parrot hanging upside down, the African grey declared "You gotta put this bird on the camera."

Apparently the grey had simply been treated by his mistress throughout his life as if he were a human infant. The finding was also likely to dismay postmodernists who have wanted to believe that language provided just about everything that was central to the cultures of which they held the human world to be composed.

However, champions of language as innate could draw satisfaction from the new finding in a species that always seemed to have some capacity for propositional speech (whereas non-human primate `language' is a much more emotional affair and never lent itself to being trained up into grammatical accomplishment.


Britain's top-paying rest-home for peecee people and assorted feminazies took a direct hit from High Court judge Lord Hutton, whose report on the death of UK intelligence expert Dr David Kelly (while sadly failing to take evidence from, let alone photograph Dr Kelly's "devoted friend" and spiritual mentor, the beautiful, flirtatious, seductive and divorced top USAF translator and possible spy Mai Pederson) concluded that the BBC had lapsed in its primary duty of objective and well-evidenced reporting. That fat leftie heads should roll was expected - not least by righteously indignant Downing Street adviser Alasdair Campbell whom the Beeb had wrongly accused of `sexing up' the intelligence document that had supplied Britain's case for war with the mass-murdering Iraqi psychopath and tyrant Madman Insane.

{In the end the Beeb's two top men resigned - though they were promptly replaced by other Guardian-reading ignoracists. In line with the Corporation's loss of interest in truth (whether about race, IQ, sex or paedophilia), its ex-personnel promptly started criticizing the Hutton Inquiry (which they had welcomed during the six months until its verdict) and whining about why the BBC's Board of Governors had accepted their resignations. Next, the Corporations lower minions planned to strike so as to show the whole world their dedication to pious peecee multicultural pacifist liberal-leftism - instead of to Mr Blair's semi-realist compromise with the new religion. However, it gradually dawned on the Beeb that it had lost the battle as the Hutton Inquiry Report was supported by the Times, the Guardian (29 i) and the Telegraph (NB a specially fine article there by Barbara Amiel). Whether any reduction in its peecee propaganda would follow remained to be seen.}
