Re: The Climate Change agenda

School pupils in the UK and across other European countries are being organised into a ''strike'' and walkout of their education today by a group calling itself 'Youth strike 4 climate''. This action is being supported by politicians including government ministers. Nothing is more politically insidi...

Re: The Climate Change agenda

Why do you find it pointless? Because you have no argument, no scientific reasoning? Why resort to Spanish references to working with the devil? What relevance is that? How do you think you know what my motivation is? Why selfish? You offer no justification for this, again it is a reckless statement...

Re: The Climate Change agenda

Sorry, I don't do conspiracy theories. You don't do conspiracy theories - that is a cliché. You resort to clichés to avoid any argument against the evidence you don't want to consider. You don't want to consider the evidence because you have no arguments to refute it and your mind is closed to any ...

Re: The Climate Change agenda

How the argument will end, I'm afraid. https://i.imgur.com/07m59ee.jpg No. The 'argument' will not end because it is pursued by vested academic interests and their lobbyists in the IPCC and the EU. What will happen is that climatic variation will be managed over time by improvements in technology a...

Re: Italian fascism and Italy's WW2 performance

Revisionism or not, the salient points here is Italy's actual war performance and the lack of proper preparation for the war that should have been fought. I disagree with the view that foreign policy was a continuation of that of the more 'liberal' Italy prior to WW1. The more 'liberal' Italy would ...

Isn't it the nature of a draft to be altered?
Yes, but you haven't answered the question I posed about the context of the alterations.

Having looked at the article parts highlighted I am not quite sure what context the previous poster is trying to assign to the restatement.

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

Had Bismarck made it to France against all the above, Lutjens should have had his own "Trafalgar Square column" in Berlin (instead of the insinuations of " propagandists "). It's a (sad but logical) fact that history is always written by the winners and very few recognition go to the losers, even w...

Re: The Climate Change agenda

: All of the criticised models are developed and documented in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Then produce one of these articles and explain in plain English how anthropogenic global warming actually works. Just because you read something on Breitbart or watch something on Youtube, it doesn't i...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

.... One must also take into account the raider's ability, once at sea, to disrupt merchant traffic patterns and convoy schedules and force the opponent to commit forces (which might be put to good use elsewhere) as convoy escorts or as response elements against possible raiding forays. Whether or ...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

The experience with AGS in December 1939 is an even better one, as it would have heavily influenced the genesis of the orders referred to. It may have affected the orders, but its relevance Is questionable I would say. AGS' 11" guns were not matched in performance by any of Harwood's cruisers, so a...
