BY JAMIE FOSTER This week Gina Miller, the anti Brexit activist who won a Judicial Review on the Government’s Article 50 powers, addressed the Lib Dems conference on Brexit. She denounced what she called Brexit lies as well as kindly informing the Lib Dems she was not a ‘leader in waiting’. She maintained that she was independent of all parties including the Lib Dems, telling … Continue reading Random Citizen Addresses Shrinking Lib Dems
CSM EDITORIAL Sir Vince Cable calls us Brexiteers “fundamentalists”. We are to blame for future years of economic pain and are supposed to have had an “erotic spasm” in voting to leave the EU. We’ve taken a lot in the last years. I guess that is the price of winning the EU Referendum. The last standing Remainers are as Nick Clegg predicted for the Brexiteers … Continue reading Salzburg May’s Munich?
BY DAVID EYLES A rarely spotted phenomenon, sometimes acknowledged by one or two of the more astute political pundits, is that the Labour Party has moved away from its core of working-class voters. The leadership has now fully embraced the demands of its middle and upper-middle class hierarchy and has gone full-on Quinoa Marxist. However, the Labour Party is not alone, because the Conservative Party has also … Continue reading The Quiet Revolution
BY JAMIE FOSTER Labour moderates seem to be considering a deal with Corbynites in order to prevent Brexit. Despite having been savagely attacked over years, the moderates are so concerned about Brexit that they might be prepared to halt their attacks on Corbyn and play down the antisemitism that is rife in the party if Corbyn will vote against Theresa May’s Brexit plan.

CSM EDITORIAL Downing Street’s retort at the start of the week to Boris Johnson’s article – which rightly pointed out that Theresa May’s Chequers plan means disaster for Britain – was clear: that Boris had no plan and that “there’s no new ideas in this (his) article to respond to”. Amber Rudd then came windmilling into the row with “once again, it’s a case of … Continue reading What If?
BY JOHN ISMAEL Theresa May would do well to spend some time today in the sales office of a photocopier firm, or in the company of an insurance salesman. No doubt Anglian Windows or some other well-honed sales operation exists in this fine and (still) capitalist country where she could sit for a few hours and listen to the sales experience of hard-skinned salespeople. What … Continue reading Death of a Salesman
CSM EDITORIAL The Squires almost choked on their soldiers during yesterday’s emission of the Today Programme on Radio 4. Could they be hearing right? Was Brexit really going to lead to a sperm shortage? We’d heard it all before from Project Fear … car parts shortages, a massive drop in employment, economy shrinks that made the Wall Street Crash seem like a walk in the … Continue reading Your Country Needs You
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Another dinner party. Another Remoaner over-refreshed courtesy of a paddling pool quantity of Sauvignon Blanc… this time the remoaning rant concerning the “imminent destruction” of the City of London because of Brexit. I confess that of late I’ve been having some rather bad luck with dinner parties. Back in July I attended a dinner in Hampshire at which some remoaner complained that … Continue reading The City will be Fine
BY JAMIE FOSTER In an excellent new article on Brexit Central Martin Howe QC explains how the UK leaving the EU on WTO terms would result in lower prices for UK consumers. The essential nature of the EU as a protectionist organisation is laid bare in the article. He explains that the stories in the press claiming food prices would rise if we left the … Continue reading Listen to Howe on WTO
