The Fallacy Of Blind CVs

By Alexander Baron

According to a recent BBC report: “Leading companies and universities are being asked to remove names from application forms in an effort to stop unconscious bias against potential recruits from black and ethnic minority backgrounds.” When the Beeb refers to unconscious bias, what we are really talking about is that old chestnut racism, but, surprise, […]

By Alexander Baron

After the historic defeat of the Government’s latest austerity measures by the Upper House, Chancellor George Osborne reiterated his claim that Britain cannot continue to live beyond its means, and said in effect that when these measures are eventually effected in some form, and the national living wage instituted, all will be sweet and wonderful; […]

By Alexander Baron

Last week, the London premiere of the film Suffragette was targeted by a group calling itself Sisters Uncut who were protesting against austerity which they claim is leading to cuts for (what they see as) essential services for female victims of domestic violence, etc. A once over of their blog should convince any rational person that […]

By Alexander Baron

The loss of 1,700 jobs in Redcar with the closure of the SSI steel-making plant has led to calls for urgent action at the highest level. It has even been suggested that future steel-making should be subsidised, something the Government has ruled out. Some are dismayed that the banking system was bailed out, so why […]

Inside The Ku Klux Klan

By Alexander Baron

The Ku Klux Klan is an easy target for liberal media hatchet jobs, and they don’t come any liberal than the BBC as evinced by the amount of gratuitous queer sex in its soap operas. Surprisingly then, KKK: The Fight for White Supremacy is not only objective but takes this organisation seriously, giving its members […]

Whine, Women And Politics

By Alexander Baron

Have you noticed the liberties some people are given, the they take? Let’s start with Charlotte Proudman; she was in the news recently banging on about some guy complimenting her photograph. Purely on account of that, she was given space by that favourite of the Islington set the Guardian to spout off about […]
