Who comprises the current Establishment? According to Douglas Murray, it's the public sector elite ? the people running universities, museums, regulators, the BBC and all the major charities. And they're all woke liberals.

A study in NEJM makes the false claim that infants are at "high risk" from COVID-19 to justify vaccinating pregnant women. This blatant falsehood in a leading journal undermines trust in science and medicine.

Why have students turned their backs on free speech? According to an excellent piece in UnHerd by Matthew Goodwin, it's a combination of generational change, victimhood culture and the marketisation of universities.

They advised me that if there was anyone I knew who witnessed the flaring and wished to make a statement that they should do so,” Mary Corduff said.

She confirmed the last flaring incidents she witnessed was on Tuesday last, July 5 and that it had continued for some 20 minutes.

“Shell being forced to pay a fine because of flaring won’t make the people of the area any safer,” she said.
Last January Shell stated that the New Year’s Eve flaring was ‘exceptional’ and that the company would ‘take all measures to minimise further occurrences’, which it said would be ‘intermittent in the coming days’ as first gas was brought ashore....
