Max-Farquar-Website-Featured-Image Open Thread

This weeks Open Thread. Update:  Joe Public sent in a suggestion for discussion today, which ought to raise a few hackles – click for linky MPs splash out £250,000 of public money on vanity portraits Here’s one of our most loved & hard working members of parliament: Once you’ve recovered your composure, and cleaned the keyboard and screen, a visit ...

Max-Farquar-Website-Featured-Image Open Thread

This weeks Open Thread for your discussions. How about the news that cosy little club ACPO might be disbanded? Granted this report was commissioned by police commissioners who will make the decision, so it could very easily be swept under the carpet. But in a speech last month, Theresa May said Acpo ‘was neither accountable to the public nor able ... Read More »

Open Thread 11/11/13

This weeks Open Thread for general discussion. I would like to make an apology to George Silver, who found he couldn’t make any posts. Askimet decided he was a spammer, and I hadn’t checked in that location. So if anyone else (genuine commenter’s, that is ) finds they can’t post, please email me and I’ll look for you as well.

Open Thread 04/11/13

This weeks Open Thread. To get the ball rolling here is a video that Captain Ranty put up the other day, which deserves wider exposure. It raises some interesting points regarding the power of the EU and central banks. Have you seen this mentioned anywhere on the national media? Is Viktor Orban now a wanted man? What are your thoughts? Read More »

Open Thread 28/10/13

Another Open Thread for your thoughts and discussions. To get the ball rolling I suggest you pop over to Goodnight Vienna’s blog and read all about the latest threat to our freedoms. The next time I hear an impassioned cry from some Green activist to “Think about our children’s future” I won’t be worrying about a few more parts per ... Read More »

Why do I bother?

Foreword: I’ve thought long and hard about writing this piece – I started it on Tuesday – and know full well that it could (and probably will) blow up in my face. But I’ve had enough of the snide comments from a certain person over the last week or two. It originally included the words “In short, I’ve had a ... Read More »

Open Thread 30/09/13

Here you go – this weeks Open Thread, and another chance to sound off. Please use this one rather than continue in last weeks – 50+ replies starts getting unwieldy. MD Read More »

Open Thread 23/09/13

After my “Parish Notice” last week the general consensus is to try and keep the Max Farquar blog going. As I said then, it isn’t likely to contain the regular posting you were once used to – unless Max decides to make a return. However I am willing to give “Guest Posts” another go, on the condition that they aren’t ... Read More »

Parish Notice

I suppose now is as good a time as any to get this off my chest. The truth is Max isn’t likely to be making any more posts in the near future, if at all. He’s OK, but his every day life has rather got in the way of blogging. I’ve known this for a while but just haven’t had ... Read More »

Max Farquar Open Thread 10/6/13

I think it’s time to start a new open thread. The first seemed to go fairly well, but after a while it gets unwieldy. Perhaps you could continue the medical discussion here? I’ll start off with a quick update on my progress: I’m getting more movement and strength back with each day, and the swelling has gone down almost as ... Read More »
