Shouldn’t We All Think Twice?

CSM EDITORIAL Images of dumb Americans posing beside the corpses of lions and other animals they have shot dead on ‘hunting holidays’ appals most people. There’s an overriding sense of a terrible waste of the animal’s life. It’s easy to feel hate towards the killers just as it’s easy to feel hate towards poachers who kill rhinos and elephants – alongside other wildlife – mostly … Continue reading Shouldn’t We All Think Twice?

Seven Post Covid Truths

CSM EDITORIAL Whatever the truth behind and about Covid – conspiracy theories continue to proliferate – there are certain truths that can now be deduced from the first wave outcome: First, Project Fear’s Brexit-caused “economic catastrophe” pales into insignificance. Those continuing whines from the CBI and Sir Richard Branson fall on deaf ears now. It’s as if Covid came along at exactly the key juncture … Continue reading Seven Post Covid Truths

England’s Cyber Nats

CSM EDITORIAL This magazine is proud to publish the writings of Effie Deans. She writes clear and illuminating articles – often to highlight the nonsense going on up north over the border as Sturgeon’s mayoralty gets a tad too big for its wee booties. The downside to publishing Effie’s work is the kickback that the magazine receives from the so-called cybernats. These comprise the SNP … Continue reading England’s Cyber Nats

Anger Grows Against BBC “Poll” Tax

CSM EDITORIAL Business people who today count the cost of the Coronavirus on their businesses – some are coming to terms with laying off loyal staff and some business owners face bankruptcy – sigh deeply when they pay off their monthly bills. The payments for rates and council tax are always way more than they should be – if only councils were run with the … Continue reading Anger Grows Against BBC “Poll” Tax

Labour at War

CSM EDITORIAL The sacking of Rebecca Long-Bailey yesterday marked the opening shot in a war against Labour’s anti Semitic Hard Left. Keir Starmer as the new Labour leader looked to have made a serene start – without the Commons crowd against him at PMQ’s and with some useful questions against the Government’s Covid policies. That serenity is now over. So entrenched are the Corbynites right … Continue reading Labour at War

Cummings

CSM EDITORIAL Christmas last year was rotten for the Big state pro-EU crowd, especially for those MSM activist-journalists and other partisans caught up in the Westminster bubble. The General Election result was a recurring nightmare in the week leading up to Christmas night for the Soubrys and Campbells. So, having Dominic Cummings snookered just five months later seemed like Christmas was here again – this … Continue reading Cummings

Freedom with Responsibility

CSM EDITORIAL A pandemic such as Covid 19 does not actually threaten our political freedoms. Political freedom is often associated with liberty and autonomy and with having rights and the civil liberties with which to exercise them without undue interference by the state. Freedom is balanced by moral responsibility and, in the case of Covid, it is our moral responsibility to not kill others by, … Continue reading Freedom with Responsibility

Zero Sum

CSM EDITORIAL The gossip spreading around the internet about China since the Coronavirus outbreak hitting the West should be enough to make the Chinese Communist Party take stock. Some of the chatter associated with the virus has been nonsense – on a par with the 5G rubbish emanating from Ickeians and Gab wingnuts. Increasingly China is seen to have hatched the virus in a lab … Continue reading Zero Sum

Fake News & Fake Cures

CSM EDITORIAL The Covid-19 crisis has now gone global. Of course there will be those who exploit the chaos and today there are reports of  bogus companies selling non-existent products like masks and sanitisers. These entities tend to be set up by criminals in West Africa who have set up hundreds of these scam websites in the last month, targeting businesses, hospitals and care homes … Continue reading Fake News & Fake Cures
