  1. I’ve long said there’s some people who the best means of dealing with them is a bullet in the back of the head. No second chances for the umteenth time, no messing around, just death.

    Like it or not there’s “people” out there that are just plain evil. They wear the skin of a human being, but they are anything but. Pretending otherwise is foolish.

  2. Excellent piece by Mr Sixsmith, and well chosen, if I may say.

    There will always – always – be a section of the community that preys on the host, and they simply have to be permanently removed from that community by one means or another.

    In previous centuries and millennia, we understood this.

    Small children today believe that monsters are real, and they are 100% on the money.

  3. When and how did the key to the Aboriginal Voice to Parliament become Shaquille O’Neal ?

    Also, there are some political projects which can neither be rehabilitated nor deterred, and the best thing for them is a swift dispatch to the political graveyard.

  4. KD on kids:
    Chesterton said fairy tales do not teach children there are dragons. Children already know there are dragons. Fairy tales teach children that dragons can be killed.
