Fear Merchants of Yesteryear

BY JAMIE FOSTER Having lost the Labour leadership to his brother and swanned off to the States to be the President of the International Rescue charity, David Miliband has decided to swan back to Britain to interfere in Brexit. Teaming up with Nicky Morgan and Nick Clegg, David is calling for a ‘soft’ Brexit, which appears to be another word for no Brexit at all. … Continue reading Fear Merchants of Yesteryear

Brexit Derangement Syndrome

BY SAM HOOPER Warning of economic Armageddon didn’t work, and nor did peddling ludicrous conspiracy theories about government perfidy. So now, prominent Remainer opinion-setters are resorting to tear-stained pleas that Brexit is so personally stressful as to be injurious to their mental health. One of the more annoying aspects of modern political journalism is the way that those who cover events increasingly seek to insert … Continue reading Brexit Derangement Syndrome

The Sinister Pro-EU Artistic Bubble

BY SAM HOOPER Having been spat out of the British educational system knowing virtually nothing of history, classical music came to serve as the primary window through which I discovered nearly everything I now know, love or am fascinated about culture, art and history.

Gardiner Miraculously Hits a Nail

BY JAMIE FOSTER There are almost no occasions I can recall openly agreeing with Labour’s Barry Gardiner about anything. If you wait long enough everything happens, eventually. His recent remarks to a think tank that Sinn Fein and the Irish Government are playing up fears of the effect of Brexit on the question of the Irish border and the Good Friday Agreement are spot on. … Continue reading Gardiner Miraculously Hits a Nail

BY SAM HOOPER Many so-called liberals are great at diagnosing destructive political tribalism when it manifests in other people, but are often blind to the same pathologies within their own ranks. I wrote a long piece earlier this month about deepening political tribalism as it relates to Brexit. After the piece was serialised in Country Squire Magazine, much of the pushback I received from the usual suspects within the … Continue reading Remoan Tribe’s Scapegoat Mania

Emerging Farm Labour Crisis

BY BEN EAGLE How confident are you that British workers will embrace the fields and step into the shoes of the growing number of European migrant workers who are choosing to work in countries such as France or Germany instead of the UK? Personally, my confidence levels are low. The early indicators suggest that Britain is facing a labour crisis and there needs to be … Continue reading Emerging Farm Labour Crisis

The Tanya Bormann Interview

Tanya Bormann is a colonialist, fictional academic from almost-made-it-to-Scotland who remoans with the worst of them. She actively courts the SNP, and frequently extols the breaking up of the Union. On top of that, she lives in some sort of strange parallel universe where EU nationals are somehow equivalent to European Jews during the holocaust, while she constantly dismisses or ignores people who point out … Continue reading The Tanya Bormann Interview
