Referendum Indoctrination

I went leafleting last night with my two year old boy. I would get to the gate, hand him a leaflet and walk down the path with him to the door. I would risk my fingers propping open the letterbox and he would slide them in. He loved it. He was Postman Bear and I…

Print your own Vote Out leaflet

We have concluded all the leaflet printing we are likely to do. There will be no more print runs. We printed 5000 copies – all fully paid for by Meetup attendees and the last of them are being distributed over the next few days on local roads. We were gratified that people wrote in asking…

Tip Jar open

KennyBrexit8

In the last few months Libertarian Home has been working hard to entertain, facilitate, educate and represent as many libertarians as possible. We held a conference, designed leaflets and shot videos. Some of this was funded by ticket sales but none of it has made a profit. Without the ability to hire help, pay honoraria, and…

The EU is 100% wrong and you know it

I’m not a technical philosopher. I’m not a politician. I’m a coder. I deal with data and decision making processes and I work in small empowered teams usually in a bottom up organisational culture. The relevant buzzword – for what it’s worth – is “agile”. Things seem to work better in bottom up agile structures.…

A refreshing perspective on bankers

arrest-the-bankers

The last organisation I worked for was a media company. Among a staff packed with lefties were three libertarians, including myself. Now I work for a bank, with far more staff in the building and I know of three libertarians. So, per head, the bank has fewer libertarians than the media company. I find this surprising. Why aren’t…

Shed scheduled to slide southwards

img_2154

I needed to get an old shed taken away. Whether the council tip will take it is a complex business. The council website says I shouldn’t burn it. So better left to someone else to take away. The leading provider of that service is the council, who sent a bureaucrat acted who exactly like any…

Benevolent Laissez Faire

event-brite-header

The centre-ground continues to march to the left on issues of tax. Since UKUncut began bullying and intimidating retail employees, large corporate employers have been forced to cancel tax-planning measures and raise their tax-bills and help avoid “austerity-cuts”. We have seen the expectations of tax-recipients and their professional advocates rise. It is no longer merely…
