~ THE CANADIAN Human Rights Commission blinks.. BCHRT to ensue: “Will MacNaughton save her skin — and preserve her tax-funded sinecure, like the CHRC is trying to do?

~ NROTC CHIMES IN— “The complaint that was heard in the B.C. Human Rights Commission is still pending, however, so they’re not out of the woods yet. There’s also the very real problem that these commissions might sidestep penalizing Steyn and Maclean’s out of self-preservation. They know that in going after high profile targets they’ve bitten off more than they can chew — any action against them would likely stir political action to do away with the commisions altogether. If they drop the complaint against Steyn, the political pressure will simply go away and they’re free to continue zealously violating the rights of lesser known individuals and organizations” ….

~ IS ENGLISHNESS MELTING? “Putting yourself at the centre of the universe, childlike as it is, is not in modern Britain a habit restricted to would-be stars, surly youths and hyped-up urban professionals. Educated middle class types do it in more rarefied ways, although the effect is the same in the end. Despite the ever-increasing use in the media of the word “community”, and indeed what would appear to be a nostalgia for the simplicities of the past, there is in fact a repudiation amongst some sections of the population of any form of collective identity, whether expressed in nationhood, locality or personal roots. Such concepts are seen as constricting by these single, soaring selves” …. (sigmundcarlandalfred)
