BY ALEXIA JAMES Remoaners like Philip Hammond and Nicky Morgan still don’t get it. The country voted to leave the EU – that does not make the 17.4 Million’s true representatives in the House of Commons, personified by the ERG, “extremists” as Hammond called them, nor does it make them “likely to leave the Conservative Party” as Morgan has suggested. Hammond now knows he is … Continue reading The Cameron Intake Errors
CSM EDITORIAL It used to be that we’d laugh at America. Our cousins across the pond could snaffle Britain’s best scientists and engineers, they could come up with economic miracle after economic miracle – but they would always pick an idiot as President. When we Brits faced crises we’d come up with a Churchill or a Thatcher while the Americans stumbled from one fool to … Continue reading The Worst Leaders We’ve Ever Had
BY JAMIE FOSTER There is an air of desperation that surrounds Theresa May’s letter to the people of the UK, published on the 25th November. It is a call to join her in support of the deal she has made with Brussels sent over the heads of her MPs. It is hard to think what she believes it will achieve. Is it designed to cause … Continue reading Thoughts on May’s Letter
CSM EDITORIAL There’s no doubt that time is up for the May premiership. There is nothing positive about Theresa May hanging on like a limpet. The mood out there on the street is one of anger at the humiliating “deal” that she has agreed with Brussels. If she sought to unite the country then her deal has achieved that – it faces condemnation from all … Continue reading The Ball is Loose
BY ALEXIA JAMES I’d never previously paid much attention to Emily Thornberry, apart from making a mental note that she reminded me somewhat of snooty Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter. Why should I? She seemed like yet another Corbynite letting down the word “shadow”. I mean, John McDonnell a shadow chancellor? Diane Abbott a shadow home secretary? Angela Rayner shadow secretary of state for education? … Continue reading Why So Arrogant?
BY PAUL NEWALL Anyone who holds a patriotic love of this country like me, is often seen to be sat shaking their head at the latest report on TV concerning the Brexit process. Theresa May seems to enter each round of negotiations waving a large white flag while our European allies extract a deal that makes Versailles look like a fair and balanced conclusion to a minor … Continue reading Brexit Versailles
BY JOHN ISMAEL Whatever happened to the Liberal Democrats? That bastion of a political party that brought us Jeremy Thorpe, Cyril Smith, Mark Oaten and Lord Rennard? Just a few years ago Nick Clegg and his party comprised a significant part of the cabinet. They were part of the political furniture. Remember names like David Laws, Simon Hughes, Ed Davey and Danny Alexander? Regulars on … Continue reading Do the Lib Dems Still Exist?
BY JOHN ISMAEL John McDonnell-praised website Labour Hub producing an article replicating half of Adolf Hitler’s 25-point 1920 manifesto should come as no surprise. The National Socialists would be proud at the comportment of this New Old Labour Party which has become an ideology-driven, big state bandwagon for thuggish, thieving dropouts and is riddled with antisemitism. As Red Roar reports: “Labour Hub is a new blog site which is … Continue reading Sieg Fail
BY PAUL NEWALL Bono was one of my first heroes, I bought all of U2’s records and in my wide-eyed desire to make the world a better place I read a little too much into their earnest lyrics as was the case with many teenagers during the 1980’s. I was travelling towards the left at a speed my parents found disconcerting, so much so that … Continue reading St Bobo
