The American RICO Act & Animal Rights

BY RON THOMSON The American Racketeering and Criminal Organisations Act (1970) (The RICO Act) explains the character – or the ‘soul’ if you like – of the International Animal Rights brigade.   The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an … Continue reading The American RICO Act & Animal Rights

Conservation? Management? What Do These Terms Mean?

BY RON THOMSON After World War II, the League of Nations was dismantled and replaced by a new international organisation which called itself The United Nations (the UN). In 1948, the UN created a sub-division of its responsibilities which it called the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). UNEP’s purpose was to address itself to all matters pertaining to the environment. Dividing its responsibilities, UNEP established … Continue reading Conservation? Management? What Do These Terms Mean?

Toil & Trouble

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It was one of the odder calls I have received: A colleague telephoned, “Dom there’s a witch from Wales after you”.  “I thought Ruth Tingay was based in Scotland?” I replied, confused. “No, this is another one. An actual black witch animal rights loon! You know, as in evil black. Black Witch of Salem! The Witches of Macbeth! She runs a business … Continue reading Toil & Trouble

Animals Abroad Bill Bites the Dust

BY JOHN NASH On 12th March, the Mirror online ran the “exclusive” and tragic news that “Boris Johnson has ditched the Animals Abroad Bill” – you know, that one that would have banned the importation of hunting trophies and saved more wild animals than Noah. Apart from the fact that Boris hasn’t personally ditched the cretinous proposal, the article was the usual Mirror fake-news eco-hate-speech, this … Continue reading Animals Abroad Bill Bites the Dust

Land of Woke and Tory

BY JOHN NASH Dear CSM Reader, There was a brief flurry of snowflakes earlier in January, when Adam Hart appeared on BBC Countrybile, the Beeb’s fluffy programme for neurodivergent urban armchair-farmers. Apparently, Mr Hart did a relevant piece about a very real problem – the rising tide of wild deer in the UK.  As erudite and intelligent readers of CSM understand perfectly well, deer are horny … Continue reading Land of Woke and Tory

Mere Role Play

BY JOHN NASH Humans have always been hunters (and many still are, for reasons of everyday subsistence, therapy, sport, field management, pest control and so on) and it is an unassailable fact that we were hunters long before we were humans. So, if I may, I would like to poke a word or two in edgeways through the waterfall of infantile, woke revisionism that cascades over … Continue reading Mere Role Play

The Cancer at the Heart of Extremist Animal Rights Lunacy

BY JOHN NASH Dear CSM Reader.   You are probably vaguely aware by now that there is something very, very, wrong with this dying government’s attitude to rural matters.  After all, most people who make a living on or from the land thought they could rely on the Conservative Party for its down-to-earth policies – policies that once balanced the touchy-feely, self-centred anthropomorphic dreams of … Continue reading The Cancer at the Heart of Extremist Animal Rights Lunacy

Killing Rudolf, Killing Democracy

BY JOHN NASH This week, being close to the warm and optimistic celebration of Christmas and the season of goodwill towards everyone, the Mail on Sunday (MOS) ran a piece of hate-speech about British hunters going to Iceland to kill reindeer for “fun”, and “sharing gruesome pictures online of slaughtered reindeer on a pre-Christmas trip”. By some amazing coincidence,  the Daily Star discovered this very … Continue reading Killing Rudolf, Killing Democracy

Airheads & Con-Artists

BY JOHN NASH On 10th December, our beloved government issued a press release stating that they would ban the importation of hunting trophies. This was a government press release, issued by unelected Zac Goldsmith and his new glove puppet, George Eustice, MP, so it is undeniably official government stuff. There is absolutely no scientific or factual reason to create such a ban. Without digging through … Continue reading Airheads & Con-Artists

Something Rotten in the Den of State

BY JOHN NASH This week, after a recent spell of malady, I was finally able once more to enjoy my frugal weekly treat – that of watching the amiable and extremely knowledgeable Charlie Jacoby on Fieldsports TV, whilst enjoying a small glass of amber fortitude in homage to the departed sunset. Unfortunately, my wrinkly euphoria was, without warning, most violently and rudely interrupted.  I refer, of … Continue reading Something Rotten in the Den of State

The Inhumanity of the Animal Rights Lobby

BY IWMC We should never forget that The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was established 50 years before the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. In August, Ndoskoy Sangau (9), Sangau Metui (10), Sanka Saning’o (10) were killed by lions in a nature conservation area. It was a brutal reminder of the growing risk of human wildlife conflict … Continue reading The Inhumanity of the Animal Rights Lobby

PayPal a Lifeline for Scamming Sabs

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Like with most companies which Peter Thiel is linked to, PayPal is a seriously impressive operation. Certainly, it has no need to be supporting hunt saboteurs’ insipid grifts, which are so clearly bogus that one wonders how idiotic the sabs’ useful idiot following has become. Take two recent examples: PayPal has been told of these recent scams as have the UK authorities. … Continue reading PayPal a Lifeline for Scamming Sabs

LACS Continues to Put the Fake in Fake News

BY STEVE GRANT The League Against Cruel Sports has had very little – well, nothing – to boast about over recent months but its coffers have to be filled. How else will they pay those hefty salaries for the top men? So, as usual, it’s stepped up its propaganda war against dog fighting, badger baiting and illegal coursing. Oops, silly me. Of course they haven’t … Continue reading LACS Continues to Put the Fake in Fake News

APPG on Trophy Hunting

BY NIGEL BEAN The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Banning Trophy Hunting which meets at the Palace of Westminster sounds official and authoritative. It even has cross party support. But don’t be fooled. Those parliamentarians supporting this group are the animal rights extremists from across various political spectra. (Even the Tamil Tigers had an APPG before they were routed. So did Irish extremists and other … Continue reading APPG on Trophy Hunting

Family Are the Friends You Choose

BY NIGEL BEAN Marthe Kiley-Worthington is internationally renowned for her work on animal welfare, ecological agriculture and understanding animal minds. In particular, how to put well thought out theories into practice, allowing for the ecological controls and conflicting interests of all. Marthe was one of the first to encounter animal rights activists and their movement’s hostile nature in the 1980’s.  She was the first to … Continue reading Family Are the Friends You Choose

AR Lobbyists & the Tories

BY STEVE GRANT Much has already been said and written about the Conservative Party’s new found love for animal welfare and, more worryingly for supporters of countrysports, animal rights. These worries deepened following the publication of Defra’s Action Plan for Animal Welfare. This spelled out the Government’s plans to formally recognise animals as sentient beings in UK law for the first time – a clear … Continue reading AR Lobbyists & the Tories
