Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine,
It’s that time of the year for a Christmas Competition.
The Editorial Team discussed many possible themes for this year’s competition including a treasure hunt, best-looking pooch and a lookalikes competition but then we were worn down to sighs. By the seriousness of these days and the whiskered, shell-suited threat that resides amongst us:
Western industrial civilisation – which combines the wisdom of the ancients, Judaeo-Christian morality, the enlightenment’s spirit sceptical inquiry, and the fruits of global trade and the industrial revolution – is in peril. Like free markets and free speech, it has fallen victim to an increasingly fashionable year zero mentality – prevalent especially among the millennial generation – which seeks to ignore the lessons of the past and, in the guise of remaking the world anew, repeat some of history’s worst mistakes. From fiscal policy to safe spaces, from Islamic terror to internet censorship, to the repurposing of Christmas itself, we are too often losing the argument to a determined, ruthless and often better organised enemy. If they succeed, the consequences for our culture, our prosperity and our freedoms will be disastrous. Our hope this Christmas at Country Squire Magazine is to ensure that they fail.
So, this Christmas we have called for a Merry Meme Competition and here are the rules:
- Before the end of Friday January 5th, 2018, send your meme (or memes) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ensure all memes are targeted at one (or a combination of) the following: Socialism, Corbyn, Corbynites, Momentum, Momentum Trolls, John McDonnell, Abuse of Unions, the Labour Party hijacked by Momentum.
- On Friday January 12th, 2018, we shall publish the best 10 memes and set up a poll for You to choose the best meme. The poll will be open for one week (until close of business at 1800 on Friday January 19th, 2018).
- The winner of the poll shall win £1000 and the best 4 runners up shall win a decent bottle of whisky (if aged over 18) or a £50 note (if aged under 18).
We look forward to receiving your entries.
From all at the magazine – We wish You all a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous, peaceful 2018.
