Customers Think They’re Always Right

BY ANDY COLLIDGE When you are in a trade or business that is constantly frequented by the public, there inevitably comes that invariable onslaught of thoughts, opinions, requirements and self-indulgence. After only a very short while, you begin, not intentionally, to put people with similar attitudes and characteristics into certain categories. After a longer while at the mercy of the over-needy public, the more elevated of … Continue reading Customers Think They’re Always Right

Marine A Must Walk

BY JIM BROWNE MARINE A, Alexander Blackman from Taunton, has had his murder conviction downgraded to manslaughter. Blackman shot an injured Taliban fighter in Afghanistan and had his murder conviction reduced to manslaughter yesterday by five judges at the Court Martial Appeal Court in London. They heard argument on his behalf that fresh psychiatric evidence would have provided him with a diminished responsibility defence. He … Continue reading Marine A Must Walk

I, White

BY SAM WHITE The new left is racist. The middle class, holier-than-though, Europhile left. You know the ones. The millennial, mud-slinging narcissists, fixated on skin colour and marching for Islamism. Look at their progressive media and you’ll find endlessly carping think pieces on their perpetual hang up: race. They have a creepy obsession and ambiguous motives. Someone made a google extension changing the word "white" … Continue reading I, White

When Slough Trumps Seville

BY RICHARD HEATH I was thumbing through the BBC News app and came across an article called “Slough: What is it like to live in an ‘immigration town’?” The article was tagged simply under ‘Brexit’. It was an article to entice us in to watching a Panorama episode about Brexit Britain (and how we all became horrid racists on the morning of 24th June, I expect. … Continue reading When Slough Trumps Seville

Metaphors For America

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, 83-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (pictured) was interviewed on BBC Newsnight in late February and declared, “The true symbol of the United States is not the bald eagle. It is the pendulum. And when the pendulum swings too far in one direction it will go back … we are not experiencing the best of times, … Continue reading Metaphors For America

From Autoroute to Hell

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN Nobody would have claimed it was Spring, but late February was pleasantly and unusually warm. A change of season, with all of its potential, was definitely in the air. Having taken breakfast at the harbour’s edge, I eased the car onto the motorway slip road. A thin layer of high cirrostratus filtered the climbing sun; it was perfect weather for the long … Continue reading From Autoroute to Hell

Alzheimer’s Sufferers are Human

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN This morning was a good one; she remembered who I was. When I tucked my elderly relative safely into her bed last night, as I’ve done every night for the last few years, I did so in the knowledge that she might not remember exactly who I was upon awakening. Alzheimer’s does that. It’s one of the many nasty little tricks this … Continue reading Alzheimer’s Sufferers are Human

Councils’ Anodyne Nonsensical Drivel

BY MATTHEW CORRIGAN Yesterday I wrote an article about a scheme being run by a county council somewhere in deepest South West England. It will effectively provide free publicity for the scheme, which has admirable aims, throughout several towns within its catchment area. I duly did some research and churned out exactly 500 words. As a courtesy I sent a draft to the appropriate council … Continue reading Councils’ Anodyne Nonsensical Drivel

The Dinner Party

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I attended a dinner in London last week dominated in numbers by socialists, who dismissed my (small c) conservatism as evil. Whilst switching between Brexit, Trump, the Income Divide, Bankers and Eton as their arsenals of ire, they explained that they were unquestionably the genuine do-gooders in British politics and that the world was in such an awful mess right now because of conservatives like me. These … Continue reading The Dinner Party
