The Art of Giving Virtuously

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN As a soldier friend of mine often likes to repeat post-port, you get to really know a person when they are faced by death. However, as those who have joined the near-death club with two fingers rather than a pistol to draw upon can testify, the crucial moment soon passes and drawing conclusions as to the survivor’s character is an intolerable task, … Continue reading The Art of Giving Virtuously

Labour: Beyond Trolling

BY JOHN ISMAEL It’s well-known that Jewish Voice for Labour exists to tackle allegations of antisemitism in the Labour Party, not actual antisemitism. And the head of this dreadful organisation of Corbyn shills is a woman called Jenny Manson. Manson has admitted she “started the organisation for two purposes (I would say), one was to work with other Jewish organisations (that I’ll mention on behalf … Continue reading Labour: Beyond Trolling

Around the Bend

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND So, did you hear about the latest EU Directive? Apparently, some poor chap had an accident on a farm. Yes, farms can be dangerous places and accidents will happen. Don’t worry! The European Union to the rescue! In some no doubt well-appointed office somewhere on the continent, a group of faceless bureaucrats have taken it upon themselves to use this accident as … Continue reading Around the Bend

Beware the Cowardly Synecdoche

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Synecdoche is a figure of speech in which a part is made to represent the whole or vice versa. The word comes from the Ancient Greek word synekdoche, which means “simultaneous understanding”. Thus, boots on the ground—refers to soldiers. New wheels— refers to a new car. Ask for her hand — refers to asking a woman to marry. Suits—can refer to business people. … Continue reading Beware the Cowardly Synecdoche

A Message From the Countryside

BY ANNE RUTH For the first time in a long time, this Conservative Party Conference shall be attended by many furious exurbanites and rural folk. What the Conservative Party must start doing is begin engaging with these people – the people – who have been forgotten about. These are the millions of people across the UK who don’t stand out because of what they wear, … Continue reading A Message From the Countryside

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

Cult Corbyn & the Kool-Aid

CSM EDITORIAL Pity the poor journalists who were required to attend the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool this year. There were years when attendance at this political party’s conference was key to collecting a scoop on the Government of the day or the Government to be. Nowadays the sorry rabble of Labour MPs, activists and anti-Semites that attend are nothing more than a protest group … Continue reading Cult Corbyn & the Kool-Aid

Tories & the UKIP Menace

BY DAVID EYLES In an earlier article, I suggested that there is an impending electoral disaster for the Conservatives on the scale of the 1997 General Election – i.e. a potential loss of 40% of their vote and the loss of a huge number of seats. I also suggested that there are equal problems within Labour. In other words, the Conservatives are hoping that Labour are … Continue reading Tories & the UKIP Menace
