    Interesting to hear this first guest Dean Henderson on the ‘big families’ – any thoughts on the Mandela fever that has overtaken the British media and government just recently? Has it been the same in the U.S.? I’m finding it both surprising and confusing.

    P.S. Sorry, this is going to be a bit lengthy.

    During the Arab Spring I found myself wondering whether people on the ‘left’ were asking the right questions, and this feeling of unease increased dramatically when the crisis in Syria started to unfold in the mainstream British news. That was when I discovered the ‘Truth Movement’, and it was a massive relief to find that others had been asking the same questions and, better still, coming up with some quite interesting answers.

    It became apparent to me that both the ‘left’ and the ‘truth movement’ (I hate these stupid flipping labels!) were heading roughly in the same direction, but at the same time, taking very separate paths. Like I said, I was so happy and
    relieved to discover all this new information, but there was still a big problem. I’m not really one for dogma. Unfortunately, the way the information was being interpreted by some in the British ‘alternative media’ seemed very agenda-driven – trying to squeeze and manipulate the facts to fit into a very peculiar kind of dogma which, no matter how many times I looked at it, appeared to be quite nonsensical. The name-calling was so repetitive and continuous that it soon became nauseatingly predictable. There appeared to be a total rejection of the very rich and historical tradition of radicalism in Britain. There was not even the slightest level of understanding – just a small-minded refusal to unwrap any of the multitude of different strands of thought on the ‘left’ and instead to dismiss it with the ultimate insult of them all – by equating it with the ‘f-word’ (fascism).

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never joined a political party and I would reject out of hand some of the dogma associated with the left – in fact I can’t think of anyone I’ve ever met who would support Stalinist type ideology and such obscene levels of dictatorship! But anyway, it got to the stage where, to put it politely, some of the confused, inaccurate and decidedly questionable assumptions being made by members of the ‘alternative media’ were causing me to switch off from it altogether. That’s really where Patrick comes in, because I could see he had a real and very deep knowledge of the Middle East, and his focus on ‘proper journalism’ meant that there was slightly less of the dogma, and much more willingness to explore different ideas and different points of view.

    I have noted the occasional, good-natured differences of opinion between Patrick and Basil Valentine, and also with Patrick’s most recent guest, Dean Henderson. I’m conscious that we are all vaguely moving in a similar direction, but listening to those two guests has made me realise that it’s possible for the two distinct paths to actually merge into one! That’s a very exciting prospect. I’ve been and looked at Dean Henderson’s website and there’s such a wealth of information there, I intend to move on now and start exploring that new path. Not sure if PH (or anyone else!) will bother to read this at all, but if they do, then I very much want to say thank you to Patrick for saving the day and quite unwittingly helping to get me onto the right track.

    Finally, the discussion on Cockney rhyming slang / humour… Not
    sure if the bloke in my link would describe himself as a Cockney, but he’s
    definitely from somewhere ‘darn sarf’. I know some will scream and start running for the hills when they research his background and former allegiances, and I can also imagine certain individuals being scandalised by his comments on gay marriage(!), but, assuming non-Brits (ham shanks included) can get their heads around his style of humour, if you listen to what this man is saying, is there really so very much that you can disagree with?
