Witless and Unbalanced have warned that Britain could face a ?prolonged period? of excess deaths due to the collateral damage caused by the lockdowns. No, really? Who could have possibly predicted that?!?

According to a leaked Russian government opinion poll, popular support for the war in Ukraine is beginning to weaken. Twenty-five per cent of respondents want the war to continue vs 55% who want a negotiated settlement.

The demand for an end to the ban on on-shore wind farms is bizarre. As Matt Ridley points out in the Spectator, they?re not banned and the energy they produce is expensive and makes gas more expensive, not less.

It's hard to make sense of a policy that spends billions on lockdowns to 'save lives' while also assisting many of the same people to commit suicide.

A simplistic use of 'herd immunity' led to fanciful claims that COVID-19 would disappear once 60% of the population was vaccinated. But is there a dark side to aiming at 'herd immunity' through vaccines?

Today, Sunday 23 June, around eighty people stormed a work site of the controversial Shell Corrib Gas project near Rossport, Co. Mayo. Significant damage was caused to construction equipment. This was the latest event in thirteen years of struggle against the project, which faces concerted opposition from residents due to its dangerous, experimental nature.

At 1pm, local residents, joined by supporters from the Rossport Solidarity Camp, which began its week of action on Friday, tore down fencing surrounding the Aughoose site and pushed past private security before trashing generators, water pumps and pipes, CCTV cameras, lights, other equipment and building supplies. As one witness observed, “Machines were making noises then they stopped making noises! Others started spouting water!” The compound is the base of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), which is currently tunneling under the estuary to the landfall valve at Glengad beach.

Earlier, a crowd had gathered at the gates of the compound to watch a powerful play about the history of the struggle, highlighting Shell's tactics over the years, which have included the near-fatal beating of one opponent and another having his fishing boat invaded and sunk by masked gunmen.

Later, demonstrators gathered for a picnic lunch on a public footpath over which Shell are extending their compound in order to complete construction of the gas pipeline. This area was the site of action yesterday, when around forty people uprooted bog-mats (hard flooring for construction vehicles) and destroyed sandbags and surveillance to impede the construction of the fence.

The Corrib Gas project, which was initially supposed to be active and pumping by 2003, now has two years left to completion by Shell's estimation. Today's actions show that they may have to revise their timeline again, as resistance remains strong.

As one participant was heard to say: “That was one of the best fucking days of my life.”
