One of the few advantages of being a veteran in the struggle for White survival are lessons learnt from previous generations. I understand the feeling of dislocation that separate the mindsets of those over and under 50 years of age.
The Parting Glass is a great example of that special quality found in the best farewell songs, being able to combine joy and sorrow in a way that is both sad yet uplifting at the same time.
Despite it being the peak of the high season restaurants on the Costas find it difficult to make enough business to cover their overheads. Most are philosophical about the slump in business and a ‘stuff happens’ mentality is pervasive. I wonder if part of the problem is an unwillingness to adapt to societal changes.
In the late 1970s, the then STAR newspaper described Michael Walsh as ‘Britain’s most dangerous man’. Unless one can identify with the mindset of a far-left journalist it is impossible to figure out why such an extreme expression.
Hans Massaquoi grew up in National Socialist Greater Germany made up of Austria, Germany, Sudetenland, and the Saar). Born on January 19, 1926, in Hamburg where his grandfather had been Liberian consul general, Hans experienced Hitler’s rise to power and life in Germany during the war.
When businesses fail it is easy to blame the recession or Covid-19. In all but a few cases that argument doesn’t stack up. Failure is more often due to complacency and miserable management. Obliged by business appointments to occasionally visit a splendidly situated restaurant I disliked doing so as the service was excruciatingly bad. Is the owner under the illusion that a little Spanish sunshine is enough to compensate for bone idle offhand staff? Rival restaurants lacking such beautiful surroundings thrive. It is service, not the location that puts bums on seats.

MICHAEL WALSH is first and foremost an internationally recognised poet who prose has been compared to that of Leo Tolstoy, Rudyard Kipling, and Robert Service. His lyricism has received glowing tributes from leading figures in the theatre and literary world, commercial, and political life.
We often find humour even under the most dreadful circumstances; it is known as gallows humour. The never-ending recession has produced its own brand of wit. ‘With the market turmoil being what it is what’s the best way to make a small fortune? Start off with a large one’.
