RGTyler: Help Bogpaper Improve!

I have been editing Bogpaper.com since July now and have been trying hard to get the best quality content we possibly can for you, our beloved readers. At the moment I have been trying to achieve this through looking at all of the Fancy analytical bits and bobs that the site provides us with but

Russell Taylor: Down with the fat fanatics

I see the ban-happy brigade are working themselves into one of their customary frenzies over the amount of fat in our food. Apparently there’s too much of it and Something Must Be Done. Some retailers, including Morrisons, Subway and Nestlé, have shrunk beneath the experts’ flaring nostrils and signed a pledge to change their recipes.

The Austrian Way: The matter of high energy prices

Energy companies in the UK have just been putting through their latest ‘evil’ price hikes, causing the most almighty furore. The carry on has been so enormous, you’d think some ethnic cleansing or the like had being going on. What is most painful about this whole episode – for us soon-to-be-institutionalised-Bogpaperites at least – is

Marx on Monday: Legal Aid Cuts

If there is one thing that makes me sick to my stomach it is the constant bleating we hear from “Fat Cat” Barristers about the wholly justified impending government cuts on legal aid spending. Don’t these lazy, rich and privileged people realise that in this difficult financial climate we all have to tighten our belts?

Rocco: Lessons in Freedom?

Nick Clegg is back in the news you might have noticed. Talking about free schools, and how they’re far too free. Yeah, it’s pretty liberal stuff. I think we can all agree that if anything sums up what it means to be liberal, it’s arguing for increased State influence over children’s minds. It really is

Science Sundays with John Duffield: Dark Energy.

Dark energy is usually peddled as something mysterious, because mystery “sells”. But if you’ve read what Einstein said, it isn’t mysterious at all. On page 185 of The Foundation of the General Theory of Relativity, Einstein said this: “the energy of the gravitational field shall act gravitatively in the same way as any other kind

Russell Taylor: An app to combat ignorance?

The other day, while channel-hopping, I happened upon Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the 80s movie favourite, starring Matthew Broderick. One scene that caught my attention featured bored pupils in an economics lesson, listening to a teacher drone on about The Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act and the Laffer Curve (the former being a failed New Deal initiative; the latter

Eadon: M8, Apl rds ur txts. LOLZ!

Top secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden reveal that the US Government have been monitoring the phone calls of 35 world leaders. The British Press were deeply unethical for listening in on voice mails of the rich and famous (with the exception of the leftie press, such as the Grauniad and Mirror weren’t, even though

Delingpole on Friday: How Feminists – and Activist Trolls – Ruined Social Media!

I’ve just been catching up with Game of Thrones Season 3. It’s a bit of a disappointment, I must say, bearing the same relationship to its predecessors as your third ecstasy tab: not as good as the second; definitely, DEFINITELY not as good as the first. Still, you go through the motions all the same

RGTyler: I Agree With Russell Brand!

I agree with Russell Brand… Not something I ever thought I would write. After all the man drives me insane. Especially when he plays politics. His Question Time appearances drive me up the wall. I recall one time he appeared demanding that all housing be controlled by the state and given to the poor. In
