Why is this allowed to be published.

I swear my blood boils every time I see this sanctimonious clap trap.

Best thing about this bollocks is, my mother brings this home every month to read - I had to read this when I was younger - I felt sick about being gay just because this said I was going to burn in hell. Now I have come out a few months ago - and she still brings this bollocks back home.

Abortion, gays, rape victims, atheists and anyone else has been talked about in this waste of paper this month. 

Did I also say, “Alive”, the paper, makes the books my school educated us in religion for? Especially in primary school, we all had our own books full of crap.

This poison comes through my letterbox every month for some reason. But it works well on the fire so I can’t complain

Ramsay MacDonald in Privy Council uniform at the funeral of George V (top) and below leaving the accession council of Edward VIII. A long way from being a hungry clerk…

Gender is a hierarchy.  Gender is oppression. 

funny how dudes that don’t even question suffrage don’t realize they are recycling the same boring ass arguments as anti-suffrage males from back in the day

Governor George Wallace meeting with men who won the office he sought (unsuccessfully) on several different occasions. Of all these men Wallace had an interesting relationship with Nixon above all others. It was Wallace’s standing as a third party candidate in 1968 that cost Hubert Humphrey the White House and gave Nixon his narrow victory. Wallace’s candidature robbed Humphrey of five states in the “solid south” and opened Nixon’s eyes to winning conservative voters in the old confederacy. Lingering bitterness of the civil war kept the south voting for democratic candidates at all levels of government on almost all occasions. Nixon adopted many of Wallace’s policies on issues such as bussing to win southern voters to the party of Abraham Lincoln. Whatever about Barry Goldwater being the father of modern US conservatism-it was Wallace wound the clock which chimed for more acceptable candidates such as Nixon, Reagan and Bush.

The Irish Times likes to trot out the idea that John Redmond was a constitutionalist to his core, a view regularly propagated courtesy of John Bruton. This year when the spotlight is once again on Redmond his less than constitutional credentials are unsurprisingly glossed over. It must be remembered that during the Venezuelan Crisis (1895), Redmond was writing to President Grover Cleveland assuring him of Irish support if the United States went to war against Great Britain (“England’s difficulty” and all that). Hardly the actions of a loyal member of the British parliament? More importantly in this centenary year is Redmond’s role as a gun-runner, which seems to have been wholly neglected by official Ireland. It is a fact of history that Redmond was amongst those who sought and arranged for the importation arms on behalf of the Irish Volunteers, whom he knew would face not just their opponents in Ulster, but elements of the British Army seeking to forestall any measure of Irish freedom. Whatever about his aristocratic aloofness Redmond’s patriotism and ability to utilise circumstances to achieve his aim, a united Ireland with its own parliament in Dublin, should not be diminished by those trying to derive from the fact that his methods were not always wholesome or even remotely constitutional.

Archibald Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery. Gladstone’s tragic successor as Premier and Liberal leader: March 1894-June 1895. Rosebery entered political life with great promise, he was courted by both Gladstone and Disraeli. Rosebery as leader of the “Lib Imps” (Liberal Imperialists) found himself at odds with the Gladstonians in cabinet led by William Harcourt. After he lost an army supply vote Rosebery resigned as Prime Minister in favour of Salisbury, hoping to win when parliament was dissolved. This trick failed and the Tory/Liberal Unionists won the General Election. After his Premership Rosebery became an increasingly marginalised and isolated figure within the Liberal Party-differing with his Commons colleagues over a variety of issues such as: Home Rule, Lords Reform and The Peoples Budget,
