About me

Gender Male
Occupation Grandfather
Location Derbyshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Retired Englishman. Still self-reliant BUT...., until a definitive Blue Pill/Red Pill moment back in 2002 (ish), handicapped by nearly 60 years shouldering of "The White Man's Burden". By which I mean adherence & loyalty to the consensus narrative of an essentially benign, well-intentioned, 'Washington Consensus' promoting UK State, busily engaged in 'making the world a better place' - or words to that effect. Since rank, position and place are of no consequence to me, I took the Red Pill. For better or worse, the results are manifest in this blog
