In my latest Spectator column I?ve written about Graham Phillips, the video blogger based in Donbas who?s been sanctioned by the British Government. Even though he's an unsavoury character, this is wrong.

offsite link Lockdown Effects May be Killing More People Than the Virus Fri Aug 19, 2022 09:21 | Toby Young
ONS data suggest that 1,000 more people than usual are dying each week ? and not from Covid. Is this due to delayed treatment for conditions such as cancer as a result of the lockdown? Or is it... something else?

offsite link The West on Russia vs the West on Saudi Arabia Fri Aug 19, 2022 07:22 | Noah Carl

RTÉ has announced a programme in its Hidden History series making controversial claims about IRA sectarianism during the War of independence. This is how RTE is currently publicising it:

Guns and Neighbours: The Killings at Coolacrease
“The bloody tale of a bitter land dispute, involving a family of Protestant farmers in County Offaly, which comes to a deadly conclusion during the War of Independence. Featuring interviews with descendants of the men who carried out the killings, this portrait of a forgotten atrocity features substantial newspaper archive research, IRA witness statements and military documents from the period.”

Alan Stanley’s book describes the death of the Pearson brothers using a variety of sources:
(1) The contemporary (July 7 1921) account in the Unionist newspaper “The King’s County Chronicle, Parsonstown” (King’s County and Parsonstown are, respectively, Co. Offaly and Birr) which quotes their sister Matilda Pearson on her brothers’ death and the burning of their house;
(2) A 1983 description by a surviving Pearson brother David Pearson in Australia;
(3) A summary of descriptions of those events by William Stanley who was with the Pearson brothers when they were arrested and who subsequently lived in Carlow until his death in 1981;
(4) A number of comments gathered by Alan Stanley, mostly from Protestant neighbours and relatives of the Pearsons after 1981, and principally from Tom Mitchell of Kinnitty near Coolacrease.

The page numbers refer to the edition of Stanley's book published July 2005.
