In 2020, while we were distracted by lockdown, all dead white males came into the crossfires of a cultural revolutionary wave. Merchants, authors, scientists, politicians philosophers and others were all found guilty of the crimes of being dead, white and male. Statues were torn down, plaques removed and more. All because people from the past were found guilty of not thinking exactly as we do in the 2020s.
Searching for victims, it was inevidable the bloody – toothed mob would soon go after Scottish philosopher David Hume, whose Treatise on Human Nature (written while he was in his 20s,) still gives us valuable insights today. No matter, the mob deemed him a racist and insisted his name be removed from the University of Edinburgh building. So it came to pass that the university authorities changed the building name to “40 George Square”. A name which is still far more poetic than the building in question.
When I read that the attempt by the woke wankers at Edinburgh University had resulted in the University losing £££millions in bursaries, donations and legcies, I was delighted because as well as being one of the leading thinkers in the era of Enlightenment, Hume, unlike modern academics a real human being, could also claim another notable achievement, as is recorded inMonty Python’s Philosopher Song:
Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table.
David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel,
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.
MORE HUMOUR & SATIRE

Football ued to be a man’s game,there was a kind of poetry involved in the play of Tom Finney, Johhny Haynes, George Best and the other greats but it was the poetry of …

Malawi: Where Farting Is A Crime.We in the west have endured the gradual erosion of our civil liberty, human rights and personal freedom in the name of politically correct thinking but while we look to the developing world as offering a simpler, more common sense approach to life it seems their situation is worse. A new law in Malawi has made farting a crime. At least in the west we can still fart at will.
