Welsh

BY ANDREW MOODY Iconic Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh, who once referred to himself as so famous and wealthy he was essentially “upper class”, called the anti-Semite psychopath (and potential UK Labour prime minister) Jeremy Corbyn “as the best of a bad bunch” in August 2017, shortly after the hung parliament. One of the most influential writers of the past twenty years, Welsh began life as the … Continue reading Welsh

Best Not Ask Bono

BY SAM HOOPER Every now and then you read an article so astonishingly un-self aware, so counterproductive, so open to attack and ridicule on multiple fronts that it is difficult to know where to begin. The latest writer to evoke this strong reaction is Fareed Zakaria, CNN’s in-house intellectual and self-touted expert on international issues and foreign affairs. The headline of Zakaria’s latest asinine column … Continue reading Best Not Ask Bono

American Psycho

BY ANDREW MOODY Within about thirty seconds on a Google search, I discovered at least seven copycat killers inspired by Bret Easton Ellis’ notorious 1991 novel American Psycho. (I won’t name these monsters, all it takes is a Google search anyway to find their grisly “achievements”.) In an interview with Kevin Jackson, Taxi Driver screenwriter Paul Schrader addressed the topic of copycat crime inspired by … Continue reading American Psycho

Boris is the British Reagan

BY TIM DAWSON “Win one for the Gipper!” supporters of the 40th President would shout, in reference to their hero’s early starring role as George Gipp in the Hollywood biopic of the eponymous college footballer. “Boris! Boris! Boris!” chanted the crowd, as the then Mayor of London celebrated the arrival of the Olympic Torch. They may have been born five decades apart, but the parallels … Continue reading Boris is the British Reagan

Long Live the Enlightenment

BY CRYPTO I’m not just anti-Islam, I’m anti all religions. I see them as propaganda engines that encourage the worst type of relativistic thinking – the same relativistic thinking that led to every dictatorship in human history. Exploiting people’s primal fears to control them is far from novel. The enlightenment freed us from that horror show and we’d be insane to let it slip away. … Continue reading Long Live the Enlightenment

Bring on the Drugs Revolution

BY SAM WHITE Islington Council’s widely criticised decision to shut down Fabric nightclub last year marked a low point in jobsworth state interference. The incident was reminiscent of the cat and mouse battles of the 1990s when the Pay Party Unit and the Territorial Support Group, validated by decades of shit stirring from the likes of Mary Whitehouse, attempted to forcibly straitjacket society by disrupting … Continue reading Bring on the Drugs Revolution

Rainbow Reich Rising

BY INFAMOUST I am now, at best, a disinterested observer. Fascism to me is merely a form of social movement and the rules can be applied just as easily under a rainbow flag as under a swastika… it really is little more than an aesthetic. I extrapolate, that’s my problem. I’m a pragmatic inevitablist. This truly is an uncomfortable thought. It may be one of … Continue reading Rainbow Reich Rising
