Who funds Daesh?

The silence on this topic is deafening. Conducting a military and terrorist campaign on the scale which Daesh does is very expensive. I presume that much of this is paid from from oil revenues. So...

Can Trump survive until the mid-terms?

He's got until November 2018 to prove himself as a worthy contender for the 2020 leadership contest. Will he be running or running scared? Place your bets...

Trump on Twitter

Reading his tweets is sometimes jaw-dropping with the infantility of their content. The style of prose looks like it's straight from the vocabulary of an eleven-year old spolit only child. It would...

Who funds Titus?

The silence on this topic is deafening. Conducting a pedantic right-wing campaign on the scale which Titus does is very expensive. I presume that much of this is paid from from rent revenues. So who...

Satire: Definiton

I suspect that I am in error here: Perhaps Trump's presidency is not satire, but rather a parody - or even a farce? How would NB readers define the...

Nick Clegg, Duke of Earl

The New Year's honours are the usual joke. Some jobs or activities seem to come with a guaranteed gong, so why not make the honours fit? Give the luvvies the Order of Old Entertainers, the Order of...

I freely admit my ignorance here but I am intrigued by the lack of support from anyone much in the West for the Kurds, who (perhaps not unreasonably) want their own homeland and who have been some of...

Should we condemn Renrag's fallacious defence of racist jewellery?

Talking points could include: Black Pete/Blackface morris dancers (easy to interpret as racist/steeped in cultural significance) Those marmalade Gollywog dolls (a shop in my locality a while back...

Dear Ed team. I just read a couple of joyous articles on Nigel on here, including the FP with the poodle-puppy picture. If that is the one that has just gone up in the last 5 minutes (assuming so,...
