SPECTRE - New Website!
So after six years of keeping this blog I've decided the time is right to move forward. I won't be taking down this blog, but I will be moving to a new website. The new project is a collaborative effort of myself and my friends Chris Horner and Mark Waller ...

The trouble with cultural appropriation.
In
recent years, I’ve heard a lot of talk about cultural appropriation in the
music industry. Not least about Miley Cyrus and the spectacle of ‘twerking’,
but also Macklemore and Iggy Azalea (bog-standard targets). The charge of
cultural appropriation alleg...

What does an honourable Tory look like?
I've always enjoyed the work of columnist and commentator Peter Oborne since first discovering his tirades against the oleaginous Tony Blair. So I was somewhat surprised to hear that he had resigned his position at the Telegraph, itself the flagship of medi...

Gore Vidal was right.
My fellow Vidalophiles will have seen the famous clip of the Gentleman-Bitch crossing swords with the reactionary William F Buckley, Jr. back in 1968. Here's the juicy bit, and here it is in context. It must've been clear to ...

It took some time, but I finally got around to watching Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story (2008) by Stefan Forbes. It's well worth a watch if you're fascinated by the drama of American politics. In its focus on Lee Atwater th...

The real sustance.
  The real substance of Obama's state of the union address was in the positions he has already
taken and merely reaffirmed yesterday. The truth of his government can be read in these statements. Below, I've included excerpts here and underlined particularl...

The 2015 General Election.
I covered the election cycle for Souciant. My first article focused on Ed Miliband and what he represents for the centre-left and for the Labour Party. The early signs of the Miliband leadership were not promising. He
shirked from making promises early on,...

The strange thing re: the election, for me, is I have not found a single person who admits to voting Conservative. It's like internet porn - everyone looks at it but no-one admits to it. Just like voting Tory, you don't want to be known as a wanker.

Murder in Moscow.
As soon as Nemtsov was reported dead I knew the news would take it up as a fresh charge against the Putin regime. People are right to be suspicious given the circumstances, the background and the record of assassination in  Vladimir's motherland : Imagine i...

Trade versus democracy.
  The debate on the European Union is largely framed in terms of immigration policy and outrage around vague legislation drawn up in Brussels and imposed on the rest of us. In actuality, the worst aspects of the EU project can't even be discussed - namely t...

The combination of economic sanctions and oil prices have led to the currency crisis in Russia mutating into the greatest crisis for Putin to face. The question which observers should be pondering is whether or not Putin will...
