I have often regretted, in this my later life, not having asked more questions as a youngster, being too much inclined just to accept what my parents knew about family history or current affairs.
Rudyard Kipling wrote ‘them that asks no questions isn’t told a lie‘ but he was talking about ‘class’ deception in ‘A Smuggler’s Song’.
Samuel Johnson wrote in his later life ‘The insolence of wealth will creep out‘
You may be forgiven for wondering how these two quotes are connected; you can find out by attending the ‘Questioning Science Conference‘ which is planned for July 2021 at a venue in Northamptonshire. It is designed to be a 3-day event, where many questions will be both asked and answered – questions about what is happening in today’s world – answers as to how to live in it – but not of it, as Churchill said about Britain’s position in post-war Europe.

Born in a stone-flagged under-dwelling, in an obscure Yorkshire village. Funded for grammar school by my aunt, worked variously in HM Customs, the London Met Police and switched careers into fire-resistant glazing in 1984. Back in 1974, like C.S. Lewis, I had come to the conclusion that 'Christians are wrong, but all the rest are bores'. Worked for a spell in Israel, and understood why the 'Austrian asylum-seeker''s final solution did not succeed. Confronted now with the practical outworking of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, I see that my country was sleep-walked into the undemocratic oligarchy of Brussels. My country is too rich in noble history to remain subordinate to these malevolent, avaricious souls with hearts blacker than a witch's hat. The Rastafarian motto comes to mind - 'those who are in earnest are not afraid of consequences.' A root-and-branch change back to true local democracy is the only way. This will not be an easy road but those who see clearly know that we must make this corrupt system unworkable, this country of ours ungovernable in its present form. This is not an incitement to insurrection as an objective; instead we lay the foundations of a FAIR, JUST and FREE society. Join us if you dare - our contact details are on the other page..
