Unite4Europe’s Unelected

BY SIMON O’LEARY The irony of the EU being run by an unelected body failed to register with Donald Tusk on Saturday: ‘I was born exactly 60 years ago, so I am the same age as the European Community,’ said the solemn European Council President in Rome on Saturday. ‘At that time, we all looked to the West, towards a free and unifying Europe, instinctively … Continue reading Unite4Europe’s Unelected

Erdoğan Threatens Europe

BY ASGHAR KHAN There have been plenty of attempts in the past to take the mickey out of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The Spectator memorably ran a poetry competition under the literary supervision of Douglas Murray – The Spectator’s President Erdogan Offensive Poetry competition – which was won by Boris Johnson, no less, with the following, err, ode: There was a young fellow from Ankara Who … Continue reading Erdoğan Threatens Europe

Avoiding the Fourth Turning

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN For those of us schooled in the dismal science, the Strauss–Howe generational theory, created by authors William Strauss and Neil Howe, and held by Chief Trump Adviser and Breitbart King Steve Bannon, is overly deterministic, non-falsifiable, and just not supported by available data.

Stealth Blasphemy UK

BY SAM WHITE As discussed here on this magazine a few days ago, the BBC Asian Network went a little off kilter last week. In case you missed it, they sent out a cheerful message in which presenter Shazia Awan, who just arrived from the Middle Ages, vacuously requested listeners to call in with their views on the appropriate punishment for blasphemy. The corporation had to … Continue reading Stealth Blasphemy UK

The Power of Silence

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I first discovered the awesome power of silence in 1991 on a school trip to Medjugorje in what was then Communist Yugoslavia.  I’d been convinced by my friend David to go on the trip to witness the amazing miracle of Our Lady of Medjugorje. This is the title given to the apparition by those who believe that Mary, Mother of Jesus, regularly … Continue reading The Power of Silence

Mr Jones Diary: Edge of Reason

BY SAM WHITE It’s been a busy few months campaigning against democracy, and having achieved nothing I think I’ve earned a break. Actually I’m confused. I just don’t understand the abuse I get online. I dedicate my life to telling people they voted wrong and we shouldn’t do what they’ve chosen, and I get grief for it. Is it bad to remind Brexiteers that their … Continue reading Mr Jones Diary: Edge of Reason

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
