I was once known as Zoony the loony mate 🙄.

Douglas Murray has a new book out called The Madness Of Crowds, by all accounts a refreshing and astute antidote to the pervasive fashion for "woke" identity politics.

My simple pleasure today is this rather..."scathing" review on Unherd.com by Tatania McGrath, "Why I've reported Douglas Murray to the police", which encapsulates the book's themes brilliantly... ;)

Uber  'woke' Canadian premier, Justin Trudeau, has been found to have once gained inspiration for a fancy-dress party From The Black & White Minstrel Show ;D

And it will be the uber-woke set and their madly skewed, predictably disproportionate, overcompensating sense of social justice and virtue that will shout the loudest and pillory him about this non-issue from nearly two decades ago; no amount of solemn contrition will appease them.  ::)

It actually couldn't be better timed for Douglas Murray as he goes around promoting his new book.  Which - hey, just a minute - makes you wonder...  :o ;)

Yes, "nothing to see here" springs to mind.
It does show that Justin and his good friend 'Prince of Woke' Harry, both go 'all out' when it comes to fancy dress  ;D

More evidence emerging that Trudeau is a reformed racist. 

The Donald must be loving this:

"Dressing up as coloured folk is not a good thing...very bad.
I've not done that....never did...couldn't do it...not good"   ;D

The slightly amusing thing is, now he is saying he can't remember how many times he "Blacked Faced"   ::) ;D ;D

I'm trying to figure how and why a white racist would go through all that effort to make themselves look brown/black.  :-\

What a cracking Saturday: glorious, warm, sunny weather; a couple of pre-match brews with a certain fellow-TNMSer (looking in fine fettle, sir!); followed by an entertaining 4-2 victory for us at The Shay; and the icing on the cake is that there's an 80s night tonight at the social club 50 yards from my door. 

If Carlsberg did Saturdays! 😬⚽️🍻

Great day on a pub crawl around Abingdon. Not too pissed and just about to tuck into a pizza.

Great gig tonight and bumped into Alex late of this parish.
Said he had a look in here recently for the first time in ages and it now looks like a meeting of the ku klux Klan  :o

Funnh the things you learn when you start going down internet wormholes.

Yesterday I found out that Randy Rhodes started off in Quiet Riot of "Bang Your Head" and a bunch of Slade covers fame.

He left to join Ozzy before they produced anything but he came up with the name from listening to an interview with Rick Parfitt. He kept saying "Quite right" during the interview. With Parfitt's accent he thought it sounded like Quiet Riot!

On a more cultural note went to the newly opened Museum of Literature in Ireland today. Fabulous place!
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!
