The Countryside Fights Back

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It was with some reluctance that I was asked to present on film my take on the current battles over the Great British Countryside. Not my scene at all. Nonetheless I trooped up to Yorkshire with our terrier Angus (our labrador was banned by the producers as they thought he might gobble the microphone muff) and we shot the following three films … Continue reading The Countryside Fights Back

Baileys’ Quoque

BY ROGER WATSON I recently introduced readers to a minority movement, described as ‘virus deniers’. They prefer to describe themselves as ‘virus sceptics’ and quickly enact Godwin’s Law (that eventually all arguments end up with someone being compared to Hitler) when the term ‘denier’ is used. For evidence of this see the comments that greeted another similar piece published in The Daily Sceptic. However, they … Continue reading Baileys’ Quoque

The ‘Devolved’ & ‘Reserved’ Admonishment

BY EFFIE DEANS The United Kingdom has various serious problems at the moment. Some of them are short term primarily caused by our response to Covid, others are more long term. Many of us will struggle to heat our homes or drive our cars, because of long term failures in our energy policy. But the greatest threat to the UK and the greatest long-term problem … Continue reading The ‘Devolved’ & ‘Reserved’ Admonishment

Mexico’s Shameful Circus Animal Bloodbath

BY NIGEL BEAN Please spare a thought for the Mexican trainer Nicky Fuentes Ziccolonee (in the photos below) and her beautiful tigers, most of which are now dead. What follows below, from our Mexican friends, is the story of Mexican Circus animals and what happened after the ill thought out Mexican Circus Animals ban: What happened to the animals of Mexican Circuses after the ban? … Continue reading Mexico’s Shameful Circus Animal Bloodbath

Tolkien Reduced to Woke

BY DANIEL JUPP It’s actually heart-warming to read through the comments on an Amazon Prime ad for their Lord of the Rings (The Rings of Power) series. People are ripping the piss out of it. The ad features what I suppose is meant to be either a wizard or a hobbit, maybe Gandalf, maybe Bilbo’s great grandfather. It’s hard to tell because the actor is … Continue reading Tolkien Reduced to Woke

Trophy Hunting & Britain: The Case for a Ban 

BY JOHN NASH A report of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Banning Trophy Hunting June 29, 2022: If you wander into a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Banning Trophy Hunting (APPGBTH), you may be forgiven for thinking you have wandered into the Mos Eisley cantina in Star Wars…it is a smug, tinfoil-hat group of cranks and zealots who suffer from a bizarre, … Continue reading Trophy Hunting & Britain: The Case for a Ban 

Regenesis

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Those familiar with George Monbiot’s journalism – to use the word in its loosest and most absurd sense – will know of his strange, almost pathological obsession with farmers. He writes endlessly about abolishing livestock farming and rewilding agricultural land, but shows little care or consideration as to what should happen to the families and communities for whom farming is not just … Continue reading Regenesis

Coming Home

BY STEWART SLATER “It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.” It may seem churlish to drag up Dr Johnson’s dictum on women preaching in the aftermath of the Lionesses’ famous victory. For it was, surely, one of the great British achievements worthy, on the basis of the breathless and ubiquitous coverage, of comparison to the discovery of … Continue reading Coming Home

Truss Must Defend the United Kingdom

BY EFFIE DEANS It is now almost certain that Liz Truss will be the next Prime Minister. Unless something very strange happens, Sunak has already lost.  Her first task is to protect the United Kingdom. Any Prime Minister whose action or inaction leads to the break up of the UK will be remembered for that and that alone. The UK is threatened in two ways. One … Continue reading Truss Must Defend the United Kingdom

Is Human Extinction Inevitable?

BY MEG LEE CHIN There comes a moment when something you only understood intellectually becomes something more tangible. This understanding surpasses the intellect. It becomes something you know in your soul. Prior to the siege of the US Capitol, The idea of human extinction was something I was aware of intellectually. But afterward, I knew in my bones it would one day be inevitable. Trump … Continue reading Is Human Extinction Inevitable?

Cruise Control

BY JOHN NASH The Daily Maverick’s padded-cell correspondent, Don Pinnock (Dumb Pillock), has been at the crayons again. Personally, I’m convinced the nurse has been overdoing his meds. On 7th July ’22, he scribbled a Daily Maverick (a leading South African source of news, opinion and investigations) farticle about “a forensic study” into Botswana’s Community Based Natural Resource Management (CBNRM) conservation system. The “study” found … Continue reading Cruise Control

Collapse into Necessity

BY FRANK WRIGHT We have seen of late the spread of farmers protests – from the Dutch, who object to a third of their farmland being seized by politicians, to Italy, Germany, Spain, and Macedonia. This is a striking indication of the deep division between people and politics in the management system known as Western democracy. The issues which drive cultural conflict within nations are those concentrated in … Continue reading Collapse into Necessity
