Pinocchio Packham Strikes Again

From The Countryside Alliance yesterday: “BBC presenter and activist Chris Packham found himself engulfed in a social media storm this week, after being called out publicly for making incorrect claims on Twitter about veganism in the UK. In an extraordinary tweet , Mr. Packham brazenly claimed: “So half a million people have signed up to veganuary to reduce their food-related carbon footprint by 73 per … Continue reading Pinocchio Packham Strikes Again

The Left Loves Murderers

BY BEN PENSANT Nothing upsets the modern left like murderers dying. And the last decade saw so many left-centric killers cark it that barely a month went by when St Jezza wasn’t summoned to impartially observe someone else laying a wreath for a misunderstood Jew-slayer he’d never heard of. Indeed, ever since affable fascists Kernel Gaddafi and Osama Ben Laden were unlawfully executed in 2010, … Continue reading The Left Loves Murderers

Days of Illusion

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Two millennia ago, during a civil war in the Roman Republic, Octavian fought a disinformation war against Mark Anthony. Using verse and catchy slogans printed on to coins, Octavian swayed the Roman people with fake news – claiming that Cleopatra’s lover was a drunkard who disrespected Roman values. He eventually won the war. He became the first Emperor of Rome, ruling for … Continue reading Days of Illusion

Justice Perverted by Set-Ups

BY C4PMC Staged ‘set ups’ have become an increasingly popular tool of activists and campaigners across the country, particularly if they have celebrity support. What started as a favourite trick of animal rights extremists has now spread to anti-lockdown protestors and other conspiracy theorists, who use these tactics for a quick headline-grabbing image, with little consideration to the consequences. Yesterday across the UK media a … Continue reading Justice Perverted by Set-Ups

Salmond V Sturgeon

BY EFFIE DEANS My initial reaction to Alex Salmond’s revelations was to be underwhelmed. The rather long, boring legalistic text that he intends to submit to the Inquiry has nothing juicy. We don’t find out that Nicola Sturgeon knew about Alex Salmond’s behaviour in 2014. We don’t find out that she has been leading a rather scandalous double life. We don’t find out that she … Continue reading Salmond V Sturgeon

#StayWoke

BY ANDREW MOODY I may be a simple Kensington girl with a modest trust fund and a thirst for justice, but it is my destiny to guide your generation to a new world order. I’m like a younger, hotter, female version of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, and you are my rats. So writes everyone’s favourite ecosexual, socialist, trans-disabled, intersectional feminist, Titania McGrath, who returns … Continue reading #StayWoke

Festive Malicious Communications

BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ Peace and goodwill to all men or so the Christmas saying goes. And in keeping with this tradition of warmth and compassion, this Christmas This is Hunting UK put out on their Facebook page a glad tiding reminding their followers to think of hunt staff and unpaid helpers at this time of year: “In recognition of all those who … Continue reading Festive Malicious Communications

Westminster Must Not Fall

BY PAUL T HORGAN Of course this is not the first time that the US Congress building has been successfully stormed by a hostile force. Back in 1814 the British Army mounted a raid on the American capital as part of the clearly incorrectly-named War of 1812. While the Redcoats respected the property of private individuals, no such mercy was shown to federal buildings, which … Continue reading Westminster Must Not Fall

BBC Partisanship – The Smoking Gun

CSM EDITORIAL Not many of you, Dear Readers, likely care much for circuses. Circuses have become unfashionable. Public opinion tends to go along the lines of: “creatures are better off in their own habitats rather than locked away in zoos or made to perform in circuses.” However – whatever you think of them – circuses are a useful historical example for where the BBC has … Continue reading BBC Partisanship – The Smoking Gun

Red Sky

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE If the BBC is the mouthpiece of the Guardian, then Sky News is its ringpiece – at least that’s the organ their appraisal of 2020 conjures up. Though it’s presented to us in a form as benign as any fatuous female supplement column, the subjects are more insidious than that of gluten intolerance. Make no mistake, this is a study in unrelenting … Continue reading Red Sky
