A Moment in History

Source:: Craig Murray A Moment in History Sometimes we do not know when small actions could have the most momentous effects. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand loved his wife, which was most unusual for a Hapsburg. She was not of royal blood and strict protocol meant she could not appear in public ceremonies with him in Vienna. Which is why he chose to undertake a royal visit to the obscure Serbian provincial city of Sarajevo for her birthday. The rest, as they say, is history.

Without Reference

Source:: Random Public Journal Without Reference Tweet Follow @RPJblog By Jason Michael ENGLAND IS AN EXTREME EXAMPLE of a narcissistic nation. In the independence movement in Scotland we are well accustomed to the whining. If Scotland decides to leave the union, so we are told, we will be abandoning England to an eternity of Tory rule. After independence, they inform us, we will not be able to use their currency. How many times have we heard it said that independence is nothing other than the political… Read the full article:: Random Public Journal Without Reference

The Irish Example

Source:: Random Public Journal The Irish Example Tweet Follow @RPJblog By Jason Michael IN THE COMMENTS to an article I published yesterday on the legality of Scottish independence a dear friend, himself an Irishman living in Scotland, said – as I had referenced the Irish struggle for independence in the piece: “The Irish example is not in fact the one which we should even be thinking of following.” His meaning was simple and clear: Scotland’s journey to self-determination must not be one of bloody violence; a hundred… Read the full article:: Random Public Journal The Irish Example

The Question of Character

Source:: Craig Murray The Question of Character Every now and then, I feel myself compelled to write something I know that the majority of my readers will not agree with. That is because I do not go along with left wing groupthink any more than I go along with the line of the Establishment. I do not subscribe to a set of opinions. but attempt to consider every question afresh. Wikileaks is much criticised for having published the leaked Hillary and Podesta emails, thus having “caused” Trump.… Read the full article:: Craig Murray The Question of Character
