Two parent families are better than one, but try saying that in Britain

In the US, it is now widely accepted (on the left as well as the right) that married / two parent families cope better than single parent ones. But back in Britain, it is almost taboo to say such a thing. It doesn't matter how many studies bear this out, Britain's liberal elite are more worried about offending single parents than backing an institution that is better for our children.

Janet Daley's article in the Telegraph sums up how backward Britain is.

Who needs enemies when you have the Neturei Karta

This is an image that makes me sick to the stomach, members of Neturei Karta shaking hands with Iran's foreign minister. These people would have gladly made a pact with the Nazis if it would have prevented the State of Israel being established.

There are many in the Charedi world such as the Addass who think that it is ok to give money to Neturei Karta. I'm not sure of their logic, maybe someone can enlighten me, but it would be better if they gave their money to Jews for Jesus (not that I'm endorsing them), but at least they're not plotting with mass murderers!

I won't be shedding tears for Augusto Pinochet

He may have saved Chile from Communism, he may have transformed it into the most successful economy in South America, but the fact remains that more than 3,000 were killed or "disappeared" during his rule.

Baroness Thatcher was said to be "greatly saddened" by the death of General Augusto Pinochet. The reaction by many on the right to his death was sadly predictable. It reminds me of that old phrase: "He may be a sonofabitch, but he's our sonofabitch".

And before the Left rushes to pour scorn on Pinochet's supporters, they are no better when it comes to supporting dictators. Judging by the postponement of his birthday celebrations, that other great dictator, Fidel Castro hasn't got long to go either, and you can be sure that when his time comes, the Guardianistas will be lining up to sing his praises.
