Goodbye UKIP, Hello BNP?

CSM EDITORIAL As a Tory-supporting magazine, perhaps it is not our place to comment on the leadership contest of another party. Nonetheless, when your friend smells, it is the right thing for a Country Squire to do to offer them a bath, a change of clothes and a quick spray of one’s Penhaligon’s deodorant. Right now, UKIP – the successful force behind Brexit – is … Continue reading Goodbye UKIP, Hello BNP?

Outrage Merchants Hit CSM

CSM EDITORIAL It may come as a shocking surprise to our new found friends – the outrage warriors – but Country Squire Magazine is not advertising-driven and was never intended to be. That may come as a cruel blow to those twitterati who have spent their summer Saturday writing off to the various “advertisers” who have their banners splashed across the Country Squire Magazine website. … Continue reading Outrage Merchants Hit CSM

A Video To Help Blind Corbynites See

CSM EDITORIAL This is a video which should be spread far and wide. In it the Great Thomas Sowell explains how he moved on from the quick fix addiction of Marxism. It’s only a short video so even those really busy student followers of Mr Corbyn will have time to watch this. Even better – it’s free to view and only lasts four minutes. Do … Continue reading A Video To Help Blind Corbynites See

Life Sentences for Acid Attackers

CSM EDITORIAL Attacks involving acid and other corrosive liquids have soared by nearly a third in the UK in the last two years. Running against the grain of a global rise in acid attacks mostly against women, the UK’s acid attacks are mostly perpetrated against men. A total of 242 people were either injured by or threatened with harmful substances compared with 186 in the … Continue reading Life Sentences for Acid Attackers

Labour Calls Farmers Irrelevant

BY CSM EDITORIAL On June 13th Emma Bean wrote a piece on LabourList (the equivalent of Conservative Home) suggesting that the Labour Party should focus its efforts on Scotland, on Jewish Britain and on the Countryside, where it performed weakly at the General Election on the 8th. Let us put Ruth Davidson and Labour Antisemitism aside for one moment. Regards the Countryside, this is what … Continue reading Labour Calls Farmers Irrelevant

Labour Still So Vulnerable

CSM EDITORIAL The day after the General Election, Country Squire Magazine produced an editorial which suggested that Theresa May should step down. That her authority was shot. Some Readers of the magazine complained and others agreed. We stick by that assumption however we’d now like to add one proviso. It is now clear that Labour (let’s call it Momentum, as Corbyn’s party is no longer … Continue reading Labour Still So Vulnerable

A Letter to Uncle Donald

Dear President Trump, One of the mightiest predecessors in your esteemed office – Ronald Reagan – warned on the eighth of March 1983, “let us be aware that while they [the Soviet leadership] preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern … Continue reading A Letter to Uncle Donald

SNP: Temporary, Brittle & Divided

CSM EDITORIAL  The big problem that UKIP have this general election is Brexit. The UK Independence Party seems as sensible a name after Article 50 as advertising Christmas bargains in January. No wonder that Paul Nuttall is struggling to hold his party together. No wonder they have been through torrid leadership elections since the EU Referendum. Little wonder that Nigel Farage is staying well clear … Continue reading SNP: Temporary, Brittle & Divided

Tory Voters No Longer Shy

CSM EDITORIAL In 2015, polls just before the General Election were pointing to another hung parliament. There was a fear on the morning of the 7th of May that Ed Miliband might be able to somehow form a dreadful coalition government with Nicola Sturgeon. Slightly better, a Clegg-Cameron pact seemed a possibility also – a Tory majority seemed so distant that Lord Ashdown threatened to … Continue reading Tory Voters No Longer Shy
