RGTyler: Help Bogpaper Improve!

I have been editing Bogpaper.com since July now and have been trying hard to get the best quality content we possibly can for you, our beloved readers. At the moment I have been trying to achieve this through looking at all of the Fancy analytical bits and bobs that the site provides us with but […]

Marx on Monday: Legal Aid Cuts

If there is one thing that makes me sick to my stomach it is the constant bleating we hear from “Fat Cat” Barristers about the wholly justified impending government cuts on legal aid spending. Don’t these lazy, rich and privileged people realise that in this difficult financial climate we all have to tighten our belts? […]

Rocco: Lessons in Freedom?

Nick Clegg is back in the news you might have noticed. Talking about free schools, and how they’re far too free. Yeah, it’s pretty liberal stuff. I think we can all agree that if anything sums up what it means to be liberal, it’s arguing for increased State influence over children’s minds. It really is […]

Science Sundays with John Duffield: Dark Energy.

BlackHoleSpaceLight

Dark energy is usually peddled as something mysterious, because mystery “sells”. But if you’ve read what Einstein said, it isn’t mysterious at all. On page 185 of The Foundation of the General Theory of Relativity, Einstein said this: “the energy of the gravitational field shall act gravitatively in the same way as any other kind […]

Delingpole on Friday: How Feminists – and Activist Trolls – Ruined Social Media!

I’ve just been catching up with Game of Thrones Season 3. It’s a bit of a disappointment, I must say, bearing the same relationship to its predecessors as your third ecstasy tab: not as good as the second; definitely, DEFINITELY not as good as the first. Still, you go through the motions all the same […]

RGTyler: I Agree With Russell Brand!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGxFJ5nL9gg I agree with Russell Brand… Not something I ever thought I would write. After all the man drives me insane. Especially when he plays politics. His Question Time appearances drive me up the wall. I recall one time he appeared demanding that all housing be controlled by the state and given to the poor. […]

Guest Blog: Liberty Rebel: Unite the Who?

Michael St George, the weekend editor of TheBackbencher.co.uk, responds to Toby Youngs ‘Unite the Right’ campaign. I have huge regard for Mr Toby Young. I identify strongly with his robust classical liberalism, consistently expressed in the face of prevailing metropolitan left-liberal orthodoxy. And I bow to few in my admiration for his role in the […]

Marx on Monday: Starmer

So the Supreme Court have ruled that prisoners are not allowed to vote have they? We’ll see about that! I find it difficult to understand how any right minded person can think that a convicted murderer like Peter Chester should be denied the right to vote. Although in many ways Peter deserved to go to […]

Rocco: Privatise the Badgers!

The badger cull gets people a bit worked up, doesn’t it?  Most normal, caring, animal loving British people have something to say on the subject. It might be pro or con, it might be measured or not so measured, but it seems that everyone has an opinion. So you’ll be pleased to know that I […]

Science Sundays with John Duffield: Black Holes

BlackHoleSpace

Like I was saying last week, once you understand one thing in physics it’s easy to understand the next. Once you understand time, you understand what Einstein was on about with his variable speed of light. After that you understand gravity: light curves because the speed of light varies with position. And after that, you […]
