I first want to apologise for my absence. I have been rather hard at work, and haven’t been able to devote time to this blog.

Here are a selection of my favourite articles from the past month:

Asa Bennett (Huffington Post): Are Immigrants Really Undermining the Wages of Low-Paid Britons?

Cllr Donna Edmunds (Breitbart): Don’t ‘Enforce’ Equality, Defend Freedom to End Injustice

Zac Goldsmith MP: Desperate backtracking over Recall from Nick Clegg

Ria Jenkins (Introskeptive): Men Only: Co-op in Assassin’s Creed

Eric Joyce MP (MP for Falkirk): Making sense of ? hic : (

Daniel Hannan MEP (Telegraph): The Lib Dems are finished – a squalid end for the heirs of the greatest party in history

Ed Miliband MP (Labour): We’re living in freedom because of people like Mark Radley

Robert P. Murphy (Consulting by RPM): Full Review of Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century

Maajid Nawaz (Left Foot Forward): To be meaningful again, liberalism must actually seek to liberalise

Tim Worstall (Adam Smith Institute): The latest barkingly mad idea about house prices


The tweets of the month are David O’Brien’s observations on the football commentary, and J. Ali’s recognition of Swedish laws:


For my videos of the month, Cinema Sins takes an incisive look at the Dragon Ball Evolution film:

There is also this quick video, showing an example of the ‘Luigi Death Stare’ from the new Mario Kart game:


Finally, comedian Rik Mayall has unfortunately passed away, so here is his great, partially ad-libbed performance as Lord Flashheart from Blackadder:

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will
    be much more useful than ever before.
