The Main Web Site:
it has been a while since I updated the news & gossip here – sorry but as you will see from the Main Web Site I have been kind of busy and for those living in isolation who may not have noticed: There has been a General Election in Britain!
I was glad to see that the Tories had a clear 50+ seat win over the quasi Marxist Corbyn Labour Party and that the SNP took something of a drubbing losing over 20 seats!
I must admit that I was deeply underwhelmed by the Tory Campaign – although they had a very sensible aim they handled it badly.
Two main lessons were there for the learning:
Firstly a personality cult campaign requires a personality and sadly Theresa May was very wooden and unattractive, not to mention an uncharismatic speaker, which she obviously realised and thus dipped out on the main debates!
Secondly DO NOT employ outside consultants like Lynton Crosby (Limpand Costly!), Nick Timothy & Fiona Hill who fail to ensure teamwork and get carried away with their own self importance (I make no excuses as this was clearly Theresa May’s error).
As is so readily seen worldwide, good leaders rarely make good campaigners and also the converse is true.

Back to THE web site!
Well eventually Chas pinned Richard down and we had a lengthy conference call so that Richard could provide answers to a few problems with the site – which happily are now ironed out and you will note far more of the links are working and not only have I been able to add literally 100s of pages across the site but also I have added further sites for you + a more colourfull layout on the main index pages.
Amongst the sites I have added:
Robin Page’s excellent ‘Skylark Warrior‘ site which is a countryside orientated site by an experienced and pragmatic farmer.
Marcus Stead’s web site ‘Sovereignty‘, with his views on issues as a Cardiff based 30 something freelance journalist.
David (Dai) Oakley’s series of art sites ‘Unique Pictures Of …‘ where as a friend of very long standing he offers a Unique range of different artists paintings, mainly watercolours, of all periods, for sale.
Lesley McLaren has also been added as an old friend and an ‘Artist’ whose work I enjoy
Dr. David Abbott & Cathrine Glass’s long standing and highly informative ‘Brits At Their Best‘
Anna Raccoon’s well known & respected site, though at the moment, due to the fact that she is in the latter stages of terminal cancer is a little eratic – sort of now you see it now you don’t! Anna is a long term internet aquaintance of mine and as a mark of respect I have decided NOT to copy her site but to let it come on and off, as she wishes during this sad time.
Paddy French’s site Rebecca has also been added as it gives some otherwise uncovered insights.
I have also added the Pastafarian web site of ‘The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster‘ with the express aim of ensuring that none of us take ourselves too seriously 😉
There is a great deal more on the site now and together with direct links I would hazard a guess that there must be far in excess of 20,000 pages of selected material!
The next major task is for Richard to link in the Forum & then I and Chas can start to build its format & style prior to its launch, when YOU can and I hope will be able to start participating directly, with your views and comments – at which stage back to the grindstone!
Any constructive suggestions would always be welcome.
