The Tory Rural Deficit

CSM EDITORIAL It is depressing that only 30 percent of people think the Tories understand rural Britain. A recent poll sponsored by the Countryside Alliance found in addition that only 8.5% of people thought rural life had improved under the Tories. The key question that follows is does this mean that voting patterns could change in the countryside? Traditionally rural seats have backed the Conservative … Continue reading The Tory Rural Deficit

The Rural Healthcare Desert

CSM EDITORIAL The Royal College of Nursing’s annual congress in May identified that the countryside is becoming a healthcare desert. Some rural patients are forced to take £100 taxi rides to make outpatient appointments at their nearest hospitals. The closure of small rural hospitals and GP practices is meaning larger and larger gaps in services. The chances of a ‘digital first’ NHS are also extremely … Continue reading The Rural Healthcare Desert

It is hugely ironic that one of the men responsible for the anti-democratic European Union should be attacking those who take issue with the way the EU is run in this way. What is … Continue reading Nationalism is the New Democracy

Verhofstadt’s Hellish Vision

CSM EDITORIAL Guy Verhofstadt is currently running to take over as EU Commissioner from Jean Claude Juncker when he retires in November. He let the cat out of the bag by saying that the EU needs to get rid of the unanimity principle and remove the veto that member states currently have in order to make rules about things like migration.

Capitalism 10 Swampies 0

CSM EDITORIAL Climate Change activists have been disrupting London’s traffic for a third day. Wednesday’s protest saw them gluing themselves to a Docklands Light Railway train. Now – for some peculiar reason – a bunch of the activists have glued themselves to Jeremy Corbyn’s garden fence. Let’s hope the dogs of Islington do not have to change their peeing habits. Highly unusually we find ourselves … Continue reading Capitalism 10 Swampies 0
