Has Woke Won?

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Titling her book on the assumption that it has, Joanna Williams delivers a powerful critique against this cultural cancer which has now metastasised itself into every aspect of our lives. It may seem absurd to afford a tabloid buzzword like Woke with any degree of intellectual seriousness, but Williams’ arguments – peppered with persuasive evidence and delivered in a scholarly and detached … Continue reading Has Woke Won?

Activism: A Write-off and Autopsy

BY DUSTIN BROADBERY If Extinction Rebellion is the midlife crisis of activist causes, the war in Ukraine is the crack cocaine of moral high grounds. For those finely attuned to consensual reality, activism is the perfect oasis from which to emulate dissent, while keeping one’s head beneath the parapet. Gone are the old hellraisers on the left stickin’ it to the man. Instead, you have … Continue reading Activism: A Write-off and Autopsy

The Death of Michael Corleone

BY ANDREW MOODY “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in…” Like almost every obsessive fan of The Godfather (1972) and its extraordinary sequel The Godfather Part II (1974), when I eventually came to watch The Godfather Part Three (1990) I was disappointed. Not only did it not include Robert Duvall as the Corleone family consigliere (director Francis Ford Coppola could … Continue reading The Death of Michael Corleone

Voting with Our Feet

BY EFFIE DEANS It is expected that soon Nicola Sturgeon will announce her latest attempt to have a second independence referendum. Lots will be written about this, but it is not the most important issue facing Scotland. The most important issue is demographics, but almost nothing will be written about that. Alastair Allan SNP MSP for the Western Isles has admitted the importance of demographics. … Continue reading Voting with Our Feet

The Long March Away from the Institutions

BY PATRICK FAGAN Deep in the darkness of the Amazon rainforest, there is a monster known as the zombie-ant fungus. It is a parasite that infects carpenter ants and controls their behaviour for its own ends: under the fungus’ mind control, the ant leaves the safety of its nest, finds a high, humid spot on the underside of a leaf, and attaches itself there while … Continue reading The Long March Away from the Institutions

Whitehall: The Self-Preserving, Incompetent Master of Us All

THE CITY GRUMP The list goes on. Whether it’s the chaotic NHS, the inflation and interest rate situation, the Afghanistan fiasco or 10 Downing Street partying the pandemic nights away, the guiding force behind these and countless other horrors for at least the last 70 years is Whitehall. You may wish to blame our elected politicians for all and sundry but, for the most part, … Continue reading Whitehall: The Self-Preserving, Incompetent Master of Us All

Nationalists’ Misplaced Confidence

BY EFFIE DEANS If there were a Scottish independence referendum tomorrow who would win? I genuinely have no idea. I don’t think anyone does. You might as well toss a coin. But let’s ask a different question. If you asked 1000 Scottish nationalists who would win an independence referendum, 999 or more would answer that their side would win. If you asked 1000 Pro UK … Continue reading Nationalists’ Misplaced Confidence

The Endangered Species Fallacy

BY RON THOMSON Dear Editor, Coming out of the current “Ban Trophy Hunting” controversy in Great Britain at this time, there are a great many misconceptions that need to be exposed and explained. And within the general ‘conservation’ field as a whole, there are a great many other so-called “statements of fact” that are nothing of the kind. The British people owe it to themselves, … Continue reading The Endangered Species Fallacy
