Stephen Cooper

In the 19th century the very British game of rugby football was adopted successfully throughout her Dominions; by 1906, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa were regularly beating us at our own game. In the years preceding the First World War, rugby tried to conquer territories closer to home with expeditionary forays into Continental Europe.

The degenerates were the collection of German artists - otherwise unconnected to each-other - who were named and shamed, exiled and imprisoned, because their art was defined 'contrary to the public good' by the Third Reich.

Peter Thompson

It is always dangerous to draw direct political parallels of course and Karl Marx himself recognised this when he said that history does indeed repeat itself; the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.

Gabriel Webber | Posted 22.03.2014 | UK Politics
Gabriel Webber

A properly-legislated version of Godwin's Law would only give more power to humanity's exercise of freedom of expression.

Endeavour Press | Posted 11.11.2013 | UK
Endeavour Press
