Censorship and Silence in the Virtue-Signalling Scottish Police State
Race isn’t a social construct, but here’s something that is: the so-called United Kingdom. In fact, it’s precisely because race exists that the U.K. is a construct rather than a nation. The native Whites of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are genetically distinct, which is why those regions are all genuine nations (ultimately from Latin... Read More
David Cameron is the most successful Tory Party leader since Margaret Thatcher. Yet history may also record that his success led to the crackup of his country, and Great Britain's secession from the European Union. How did Cameron's Tories capture their majority? First, they compiled a strong record to run on. More critically, they attacked... Read More
It is striking how little political resistance has been offered to the break-up of the Union
I have spent most of my working life writing about countries where communal or nationalist differences determine and, on occasion, convulse the political landscape. My first experience of this was at Queen’s University Belfast, where I was writing a PhD on the Irish Home Rulers in Ulster pre-Irish independence, during the worst years of the... Read More
Even in these days of light-speed communication, some information still travels as slowly as in the medieval era. Take, for instance, the recent history of global manufacturing. In the Anglophone world, many if not most of the more prominent commentators have long held that a first-rank economy no longer needs manufacturing. The Economist magazine in... Read More

Defeating the referendum... Read More
If there is hope for England, it lies with the separatists.
An opinion journalist is expected to take a stand on newsy issues, even ones he doesn’t much care about. This is especially so when the issue relates to the British Isles and the journalist podcasts with a British accent; to be precise in my particular case, a mid-20th-century educated-lower-lower-middle-class East Midlands accent. So, all right,... Read More
I don’t know whether Scottish voters will choose independence in tomorrow’s referendum. What I do know is that they should. They have little to lose and much to gain. In part my thinking is based on a lengthy study of state-of-the-art economic nationalism. I refer, of course, to the East Asian variety. As a veteran... Read More
“Ach, the Sassenachs (English) be greet’in and gurn’in (moaning, groaning, wailing) most mightily.” Every so often, the Scots like to rise up and give the Sassenachs a big scare. Next week, they are threatening to break their union with England and Wales which has been in effect since 1707. The United Kingdom may be no... Read More
For students of British politics, the big issue this year is the future of Scotland. The Scottish people have enjoyed limited self-rule since 1999, when a separate Scottish parliament was set up. Now in a referendum planned for this September, they will vote on whether to establish an independent nation. Instead of letting Scottish voters... Read More
HBD Chick and I talk about how rates of historic inbreeding have had an important impact on the selective pressures acting on the traits of various peoples living today. We have often used Europe and the Middle East as examples of this, because strong regional variations in historic rates of inbreeding exist in those places.... Read More
Forget Yemen and Somalia. Scotland is the next front in the Global War on Terror, or is it overseas contingency operations? The Wall Street Journal reported today: "Scotland's government has rebuffed a U.S. Senate committee request to send two Scottish officials to testify next week at a hearing that will explore the country's release last...
