Marx on Monday – The Christmas dream

Happy Christmas to you all – not that it’s going to be a happy one for the Marx family. There’ll be no presents and no Christmas dinner for the kids this year thanks to George posh-boy Osborne. Osborne is not one of our own. Heir to a Baronetcy and the Osborne and Little posh wallpaper

The Bogpaper 2012 survey

We’re all feeling stressed around this time of year dedicating our energies to buying presents with money we don’t have, for people we don’t like and who don’t even need those presents. It’s exhausting. So why not take a break, make a cup of tea and take our Bogpaper 2012 survey.

Marx on Monday: Paying for a kebab with dignity…and benefits

What kind of a society do we live in where mothers on benefits have to miss meals so that their children can eat? It happened to my partner, Sharon, only yesterday afternoon.

James Delinpole Friday Column: Sell everything and buy gold, well that’s what I thought would be a good idea…

This time last year, I’ll be honest with you, I thought the only option was to sell everything, buy gold, silver and ammo, take to the hills and try to hold out till it all blew over. But I was wrong. As you might have noticed – (telltale signs: your house hasn’t been burned down;

A Mission Statement for Britain

Wow, Bogpaper Towers is on fire! We’ve got another guest contributor joining us – The Commonwealth Crusader.   As Britain inevitably and inexorably distances itself from a centralised, undemocratic and sclerotic Europe and begins to make good the grievous errors made since 1945, it is necessary to put in place a new structure, or rather
