The Boris election, or how to stop him.


It seems like it was just yesterday when we last had a general election, and here we are with a new one on our doorsteps.

This time, it seems the Conservatives have a runaway lead and nothing will stop him. Which, well is pretty similar to last time.

However one difference this time is that many mainstream media outlets do not seem to be following the usual "purdah" rules for impartiality. If you look at political editors for the BBC and ITV, you will notice a whiff of... something.

Slippery Boris

It cannot be denied that Boris Johnson is a formidable opponent/politician. Mostly because unlike most, he seems to have absolutely no scruples and there probably isn't anyone who he hasnt lied to or betrayed so far.

The Ummah is burning

All across the Muslim world, Muslims are being oppressed - either by other Muslims, or by Non-Muslims.

Even in places like Turkey the hardcore ultra secularists are still just waiting to get their revenge on the religious people who currently have the power.

Palestine is always an easy cause and it has been going for a long time. The people need resolution.

But unlike before when the Arab street at least felt sympathetic, that seems to have changed. Instead of the leaders making atleast some statements in support of the Palestinians due to fear of the people, the people too often support their dictatorships against raising any voice.

Be true to yourself, after all, that matters most is how you see yourself and deem importance to yourself even if someone has a negative opinion about you. Never undermine your qualities.

Small updates


I have done a few small updates to the site - the previous 1 column layput didnt work well so I reverted that and made that wider.

I also recently purchased a laptop with a poor quality screen. It helped show some colours were not visible on eg the forum page or the recent posts page. Using a darker shade of background colour now, though it looks garish.

On the bigger front, much closer to being able to move to a newer codebase (move from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 ) for the website should I choose to do so.

That leads to the question of whether there is any value for this place continuing to exist.

It is not being used, so its only purpose is as a historical archive - there are cheaper ways of managing that.
