Much of my time is spent reading various reports, news items, and analytical pieces, which in turn I may share or comment upon with others.
In between all of that I will produce various short analytical observations which are just too short to turn in to articles, but which you might find of interest.
Here are a few of the most recent ones.
The St Francis Cafe
Now how is this for a fine example of why many religionists just don’t think logically.
There is a Christian bookshop just around the corner from where I live. Outside of it is a oversized A board, which in passing I should mention is both an obstruction and unlicensed. Upon it there is a list of what a cafe in the shop sells. This includes dead pig corpses, which are otherwise known as bacon.
What I don’t understand is how they can do such a thing if they have read or heard about St Francis.
If they had done so then it would be known as the St Francis cafe, and only have vegan food for sale.
Then this on Budget Day
Today’s budget has cut taxes on climate damaging petrol and diesel which fuel extreme energy personal vehicles.
What should of been done is make boots and shoes VAT ( sale tax ) zero rated. That would of encouraged more people to walk more and thus save our environment. has cut taxes on climate damaging petrol and diesel which fuel extreme energy personal vehicles.
The Current and Future wars
Over the last couple of weeks I have been doing a lot is reading about the weapon systems now being used in the Ukraine, and which in turn will have a major effect upon the arms trade.
The main points being that there will be a lot more small drone weapons in use, with more missile launchers used, while tanks have become much more vulnerable to attacks.
Some NATO countries such as the Netherlands have already started to move away from the use of tanks.
Longer term I think there will be a lot more 3D printers in use nearer to the fighting.
All of which we do need to keep in mind for future arms trade campaigning.
