All Eyes on Torbay Council

CSM EDITORIAL Torbay Council in Devon are in danger of chalking up an ignominious first – a refusal to re-designate Neighbourhood Forums. Neighbourhood Forums are a feature of the Tory/Lib Dem flagship Localism Act of 2011 which transfers a greater say in planning decisions to those most affected – the local communities. The great idea was that Local Authorities work with their communities to produce … Continue reading All Eyes on Torbay Council

CSM Christmas Competition 2017

Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, It’s that time of the year for a Christmas Competition. The Editorial Team discussed many possible themes for this year’s competition including a treasure hunt, best-looking pooch and a lookalikes competition but then we were worn down to sighs. By the seriousness of these days and the whiskered, shell-suited threat that resides amongst us: Western industrial civilisation – which … Continue reading CSM Christmas Competition 2017

Auschwitz, Labour & Pilgrimages

CSM EDITORIAL This year the Labour Party Conference has brought few surprises. The usual undeliverable promises, which, on the face of it, seem attractive – the kind that in the real world are unworkable and get torn to shreds. The usual hypocrisy – the likes of Emily Thornberry, Lady Nugee, ranting about social housing when she’s a millionaire property landlady. The usual infighting – remainers … Continue reading Auschwitz, Labour & Pilgrimages

Mogg Jumps Farron Fence

After a Good Morning Britain interview yesterday during which Rees-Mogg clarified his Catholic beliefs – that abortion is wrong, as is gay marriage – the Left were up in arms, sensing that this interview was the end of Moggmentum. Twitter was soon ablaze with the usual suspects, thinking that Rees-Mogg had done … Continue reading Mogg Jumps Farron Fence

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?

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
