[Anglo-American constitutional thought has long included a limited view of executive power—historically associated with thinkers who called themselves Whigs—according to which executive officials act in an environment of legal rules that empower and constraint them, and those rules do not come from the executive power itself.] The editors have graciously invited me to write a […]

No. I will not be guilted or extorted or threatened into voting for an untrustworthy, disgraceful piece of shit just because the opposing piece of shit is Donald Trump. Here’s a guy who keeps accidentally improving his own atrocious party, because he’s that erratic,  and I’m expected to dutifully vote for whatever heinous fucking asshat […]

Investigating No-Fuss Solutions For Pesticide

"Fleas. Just the sight of them makes us flinch. And to see fleas crawling on our animals is simply plain gross! It makes you desire to grab the nearest bottle of 'Flea Be Gone' and simply start spraying till every single parasite is dead. Get out the chemicals! Douse the pet dog! Spray the pet […]

Knowing the Narcissist : HG Tudor

The hot and cold behaviour of an individual towards someone else is perplexing. Why is that person warm and friendly one moment and then cold and distant on another occasion when there has been no (at least to the recipient) change in circumstance? Why does this person engage with the recipient and then give a […]

Lavish Mercy

Like any great Bible story, this one invites us to find ourselves somewhere within it. At the least, we are all making a sometimes treacherous passage through life. And at particular times, maybe even now, the threats may be intense.

Scavengeology

This early 19th century trunk is covered on the inside with circa 1812 Baltimore newspaper pages, and was found at a junk sale, basically. The name associated with the belongings inside, “Samuel Sands,” may not be recognizable to most, including myself at first, but a little bit of scavengeology sleuthing reveals its true historic value.

STRICTLY Come Dancing bosses have shocked fans by naming dancer Oti Mabuse’s sister as their new judge — leading to questions over bias. The show’s professional dancers fear virtual unknown Motsi, 38, will be less harsh on her younger sibling, 28. Oti Mabuse’s sister Motsi has been unveiled as the new judge on Strictly Come Dancing The South African replaces Dame Darcey Bussell who quit in April after seven years. But pals of long-serving Anton du Beke, 53, said he was “devastated” and thinking of leaving after believing the role was his. A source said: “It’s gone down like a lead balloon, with the pro dancers talking among themselves, saying it’s unfair and bound to cause a host of issues. “A lot of the cast feel like they’re fighting a losing battle already. They feel Motsi will favour her sister. Motsi previously worked on Germany’s version of Strictly, Just Dance “And some worry Oti will say who she is close to on the team — and Motsi will give them preferential treatment, especially the girls.” BBC bosses say they chose twice-wed Motsi because of a “brilliant” audition for the role. But fans’ only knowledge of her is an appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox, with Oti and another sister, Phemelo. Motsi said last night: “I am absolutely overjoyed to be joining Strictly. I’ve so much respect for the other judges and hope to add my own bit of sparkle to the show.” Oti Mabuse was partnered with Graeme Swann in the 2018 series of Strictly Motsi is also a judge on the German version, Let’s Dance, which Oti danced on for two series. Oti came sixth and last, but her sole ten out of ten was from Motsi. The Sun understands the UK judges — Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli — were not consulted about her appointment.
