Jenny is a boggart or water spirit who lives under the green algae that grows on stagmant pools in the North of England. She is reputed to pull in children who ignore their mothers and play near the water. Jenny says this is slanderous and a calumny (she is not pretty but is very astute and insists that the only people she ever pulls into drowning pools are deserving of their fate or very drunk.) Jenny and her friends have built this labyrinth of creative writing, drama, music to provide a unique experience, a website where the emphasis is on entertainment and the web design is focused on helping visitors who love to read, listen and be entertained will find much to appeal to their individual taste.

‘Greek revolution spreads 'like wildfire’ across Europe
The poularity of Anti - EU political movements has surged all around Europe in the wake of the Syriza victory in the recent Greek general election. It seems that prior to the European Parliament election las may most European voters had been resigned to their political elites dragging them closer to a ferderal European single state, with the progressive loss of civil liberties, cultural homogenization and losst of national sovereignty and identity that would entail.

France’s President Hollande Says 'Non' To Obama’s Demand for Corporate Global Oligarchy
The embttled French President has become the first national leader to state categorically his country will not sign the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership being pushed by the USA's Obama Administration. Hollande's government is already the most unporular France has ever had and the President know to give away French sovereignty to US Corporate businesses would be political suicide.

Arrogance, Intolerance, Snobbishness and Corrupt, Self Interested Practices. It's modern science. The world sems to be waking up the the fact that while in the past scientists tended to be rather detached, slightly obsessive people not driven by material goals, the modern science academy has been very largely corrupted by political patronage and corporate money. The academic field of climate science it especially notable for this.

Westminster Paedophile Cover Up: This Is Hot Stuff
I'm on my teeny weeny notebook today because I'm out of the house all day, so this will be brief but cannot go without being recorded on Boggart Blog.
As you know we've been following the paedophile scandals from when the first stories about the depravity of a certain DJ / TV Presenter who 'did a lot for charidee though he didn't talk about it' (but made sure everyone else did. We were one of the first blogs to name ...

Climate Change: Study shows carbon dioxide dangers are OVERSTATED
That old demon Carbon Dioxide is in the news again today, not because the scaremongering science screechers have come up with a new lie to sell their 'tax-the-rich' globalist agenda but because yet another group of sensible scientists have found that carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere are overstated. Hardly a surprising result when you consider the global figure is derived from measurements taken on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano in Hawaii.

Dark clouds of retribution are gathering over the hubris of economic optimism
If we listen to economically illiterate idiots like Barack Obama, George Osborne, Paul Krugman and the EU leaders Jean Claude Drunkard, Gauleiter Martin Schulz and Herman Van Rumpy Pumpy we might get swept up in the belief that global economic recovery is surging ahead. The statistics they recite suggest so. Unfortunately statistics are easily manipulated. The views of people who actually run businesses tell a different story.

Italy To put 5,000 soldiers On The Streets Amid Fears Of Islamic State Attack Islamic militant websites have stepped up threats against Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church and threatened to overrun Italy in recent weeks. The threat of attack on mainland Europe is being taken seriously following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris and the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians by terror group ISIS fighters based in Libya.

As Migrants Pour Into Italy ISIS Say: Overrun Europe with Immigrants and "Turn it into Hell’
Western intervention in Libya resulted in the North African nation going from the most prosperous and modern nation in Africa to a lawless failed state in the space of three years. Now we learn that ISIS aka Islamic State, the terrorist army that plans to establish a caliphate, has gained a hold on the country. And it gets worse ...

Kiev Breaches Minsk Agreement Within Hours
We all knew the ceasefire agreed by Angela Merkel, Francoise Hollande, Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian Nazi leader Poroschenko would not hold. The people whose country stands to gain most from war, that is of course Barack Obama and John Kerry, President and secretary of State of the USA, the country that wants and needs perpetual war, were trying derail the fragile deal while the four leaders were still negotiating.

£600k Payoff For Council Boss Who Refused To Resign Over Child Grooming
Oxford County Council chief executive Joanna Simons, who refused to resign after the failure of her children’s services department to act on well supported allegations that grooming gangs throught the county were preying on young girls who had been taken into council care, is likely to get a £600,000 pay-off. The disgraced official will get the package for leaving her post early, in a move the council insist is unrelated to the scandal. (Are they having a laugh?)

Millie Tant, Tatchell's Transphobia and Germain Greer's Big Hairy Smelly Vagina
The well of hypocrisy from which the left, champions of freedom, democracy, equality and free speech in their own estimation, draw their dishonest, self rightoeus views on the world is bottomless, it will never run dry. How else could it have continued to flow during this latest two-faced display of authoritarianism from the lovers of all minoities even when those minoritites hate each other. It is the multual hatred of minorities however that is fragmenting the left.

The Climate Bollocks Of Bill Nye The Stupidity Guy
Nothing feels quite as goodf these days as exposing the idiotic pomposity of another self styled 'scientist'. We have reported before on the sutpid, uninformed, politically correct bollocks disseminated by American TV scientist and Z list celebrity 'Bill Nye The Science Guy', but recently he has surpassed himself by putting the politically correct agenda above the facts.

Reasons To Believe Are Wearing Thin: The Benefit Of The Doubt Is Cracking
Those of us who pursue change, positive change rather than hope-and-change are often frustrated by the cosmetic tinkering that is passe. We sed off as changee. The necessity of changenyone who has been in business is all too clear. The elites have screwed up, bankers are thieves, politicians are rent-seekers, lawyers are shysters, academics are data fakers, corporate bosses are debauchers and corrupters and the whole sack of rogues are crooks and liars.

Technology Taking Over Your Life? Just Say No. Omnibus post
When our editor, Ian, wrote his first computer program over forty years ago, it was loaded from punched paper tape. Primitive stuff you may smirk but even then, for some years scientists had been babbling excitedly about machines with true intelligence surpassing and replacing humans. All these years later computers have become smaller, faster and capable of storing much more information. But basically they are no more intelligent.

Pink Van Woman In Trouble Again
The Labour Party deputy leader, Little Hattie Harperson, the paedophiles friend, cannot to anything right at the moment. Hattie has of course always been an electoral liability on a par with the racist posh boy Chukka Ummuna, a hot tip to replace Ed (Bacon Sandwich Man) Miliband until Chukka, in a rare moment of honesty said he believed all white people should be killed (or something like that)...

It’s not just smart TVs. Your home is full of gadgets that spy on you
Smart television sets connect to the internet and it is both way data exchange. This blatant invasion of privacy is sold by claiming that on your spoken command your set can download programmes and films from content providers such as Netflix or catchup services BBC iPlayer. What the makers and network operators are not saying is that if the internet can be used to bring information into your TV, it can also be used to take it out.

Leonora (historic fiction) by Gina Pounds - Review

Comedy Menu:

Comedy writing, verse, poetry, comic songs, cartoons, comic fiction, comic verse. If you are looking for a laugh and you can't find one here you are very hard to please.

Wide World


Join our writers as they take you around the world in words and pictures. No typical travelogue this because we try wander away from the usual tourist destinations, to delve a little deeper into the nature of the place, locals you might travel to, investigate the culture, how communities developed and what has made things the way they are. Look for overlaps here with our history, food and music menus as we try to recreate a little of the atmosphere. Nobody has yet found a way to digitise smells but as soon as the technology is abailable we will bring you that aspect of the ambience too.

Health and Wellbeing


How to make healthy eating fun, exercise that is not a chore, lessons in how to chill, sensible drinking. Health and Wellbeing are one of the main concerns that cause stress in this increasingly crazy world. In this menu find articles, spoken word and video on how to cope with the stresses of modern life, how to make a personal refuge for yourself even in a crowded place and how to fend off the pressures of the aggressive consumer society we inhabit.

The Natural World


Anything to do with nature can find a place here, from exploring a cave complex to articles and video on wildlife. There are obvious overlaps here with travel, health and wellbeing and the environment menus but that is the nature of The Greenteeth Labyrinth. Just as a walk in the woods might lead one of our writers to record the habits of an animal colony or write on the breeding cycle of birds, so in the Labyrinth you never know where a link might lead you to.


Real Lives - the biography menu

Biographical writing on the lives of the famous and the unknown (who often have the more interesting stories to tell,) memoir, stories told in verse, in pictures with commentary, in any way because Greenteeth Labyrinth is about using the power and versatility of new media to communicate in new ways. Everybody has a story to tell and their own way of telling it. Cameraderie, shared hardship, life on the factory floor or in the field, triumph, tragedy, survival, if it is true life it belongs here and we will find the best way of presenting it. THIS MENU is not live yet but find A Stroke Of Luck, Ian Thorpe's memoir of recovery from a massive brain haemorrhage available to read free online. Go to A Stroke Of Luck - Chapter 1

Past Perspectives: New Angles On History
History as it is taught in conventional schools and colleges is mostly wrong. Not slightly wrong, not just spun a bit to fit a political agenda but blatantly wrong. Worse, it is deliberately wrong. The Roman Empire, usually presented as the great civilising force in the western world, the enlightened society that dissed its enemies as Barbarians and Heathens was in many ways actually less civilised that the Bararians it conquered. The Celts of Norhern Europe, the Moors of North Africa and the Persians all had well organised societies and in many ways were ahead of Rome in technology and scholarship.
The American War Of Independence was not fought for religious freedom of in the first instance for freedom of any kind. The rebels were asking for seats in the British Parliament for the colonies, "no taxation without representation." The rebel leaders were British Gentleman Adventurers and many of the senior British Officers were supporters of the Stewart claim to the throne, regarding the Hanoverians as usurpers. Thus they were tacitly sympathetic to the rebellion. These are just two of the instances in which history needs to be viewed from a different perspective if a true picture is to be seen. There is much more in this menu.

A Quick Tour Of The Church of Saint Mary and All Saints, Whalley, Lancashire, UK A quick tour of the parish church of St Mary and All Saints in Whalley gives us a glimpse of the history of this area.There has been a Christian church on this site since the seventh century and though the eariest parts of the current building are from the tenth century stones from the older church were used in the construction. Three ancient Saxon crosses that stand in the church grounds are also from the tenth century


Philo & Sophia - Philosophy can be fun

From the core philosophies of the great religions to the ideas of modern existentialists, philosophy is regarded as dull, heavy and irrelevant. But philosophy is ideas and ideas are the most exciting things in the world. In the Greenteeth Labyrinth we try to bring you philosophy lite, wisdom without weight. From the origins of the Universe to the myseries of quantum physics, from the earliest forms of Goddess worship to the quasi - religious ideas of self help gurus, all is examined here. You will even find some articles in this menu showing up in the comedy pages too.The overall message of Philo and Sophia though can be summed up in the words of Hypatia of Alexandria, proto-feminist of the ancient world who said, "All formal and dogmatic religions are fallacious, to teach superstitions as truth is the most terrible thing. Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all."
What happened to her for thinking like that? Enter the menu to find out.

Fools and Dreamers - the poetry pages


Like philosophy, poetry is a type of literature easily shunned as boring. Often that dismissal is accurate, particularly in the case of modernists, whose self-indulgent navel gazing verse is deliberately made so obscure and complex it is doubtful even the poets themselves understand WTF they are banging on about. On the other hand there are maverick bands of poets, freal traditionalists, wandering the net attacking the unwary readers with their polysyllabic peregrenations through poetry's more arcane medieval forms. Bad traditional petry can be as much a turnoff as modern do-it-yourself psychology poems. At Greenteeth we publish the poets we think are fun, especially those who bring us their work in audio or video form. Poetry is about rhythm, pace and timing as much as language. Words can lie dead on a page. Let us bring them to life for you and maybe help you find a new form of entertainment to enjoy.

The Science and Technology Menu
Science and Technology is not a collection of work lauding all things scientific but is somewhere you will find objective and independent writing on technologies including sustainable power generation, internet developments, IT hardware, transport technology, food production and all areas of research and development while articles on natural sciences will set out to challege orthodox thinking. If you are one of those people who is trying to establish science as a rival to religion you will not feel at home here but if you like to keep up with at the latest developments from a wide perspective while reasing about them in a style that does not attempt to blind readers with science you will be in your element.

Humanitas - Everything That makes Us Human
Who are we, where do we come from, what's it all about, is there any point to all that we do ? Should we give a damn?
There is a very nasty tasting mindset being bred in the academic world, and particularly in the fields of science and technology, that insidiously suggests all the qualities that make being human so wonderful are in fact weaknesses and should be resisted if not eliminated. "We should all try to live scientifically" one eminent scientist recently suggested as if there was anything about life that could even loosely be described as scientific. In the end the scientists and tech-heads, with their insane belief in reason, logic and evidence based knowledge are little different to religious fundamentalists in the way they cling desperately to their certainties while the rest of us blunder hopefully through life trying to make some sense of it all.

Faith and Spirituality
Wander through the writing of followers of various faiths, belief systems and traditions and maybe feel inspired to explore your own spirituality. You will find no preaching here, while all are welcome to submit to us their point of view, christian, muslim, jewish, hindi, buddhist, pagan and all their variations any work that tries to suggest one faith has the right understanding of life, the universe and everything while all the others are wrong will be rejected.

[ Them - A poem for the surveillance society]
One of the biggest worries to afflict people living in modern economically developed nations is the loss of privacy. CCTV, databases, surveillance technology and internet monitoring contribute to a feeling we are losing our freedom as individuals. This poem by by British poet Ian R Thorpe sums up the zeitgeist.
