Universal Basic Logic

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Watching opportunists using the Coronavirus crisis as a lever with which to implement Communism is simultaneously entertaining and dispiriting: Someone sent me this photo of the @c2c_Rail this morning from Southend to London, who are running a reduced service so everyone’s crammed on the train. This situation is utter madness, the government has to announce a universal basic income and call a … Continue reading Universal Basic Logic

Imagine

BY EFFIE DEANS I think I saw the Killing Fields (1984) when it came out, but I really don’t remember. I may have seen it on video afterwards. It’s a film about the Cambodian genocide that took place between 1975 and 1979. I don’t remember the details of the film, but I remember the ending. John Lennon’s Imagine plays over the final scenes and the … Continue reading Imagine

Hush, Cretins

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE COVID-19 has revealed the tragic futility of contemporary politics. Spirited efforts by sections of the Left to undermine each and every government response to the virus wearies even those who would ordinarily take an interest in Westminster proceedings. How is Parliament to be taken seriously if £330 billion of spending is to be criticised by the opposition as ‘not going far enough’? … Continue reading Hush, Cretins

Circular Firing Squad Must be Heard

BY FRANK HAVILAND In the wake of last December’s UK General Election, resulting in Labour’s worst drubbing at the polls since 1935, Jeremy Corbyn confidently claimed ‘We won the argument’. At the time he was met with ridicule; on reflection, he may have a point. With the Left increasingly willing to simply cancel those it disagrees with, it’s not a stretch to conclude it was … Continue reading Circular Firing Squad Must be Heard

Bursting the Cardiff Bay Bubble

BY PAUL DAVIES Last weekend at our Welsh Conservative conference in Llangollen, I told some hard truths to the members of the Cardiff Bay Bubble. The Bubble is a fragile and delicate entity, and is fiercely protected by the elite within it – and by those who wish to be in it. Its devotees took to social media to pillory the Welsh Conservative heretic – … Continue reading Bursting the Cardiff Bay Bubble

Right Wing Libertarian!

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It would seem that the penny has finally dropped on the Left that calling Brexiteers and conservatives “far right” has not worked for them. Their Chief Trolls, Barmy Burgon and Loudmouth Lammy, are denuded and reduced to caricatures – their identity politics have been seen through. One lives in hope that those other daft insults of “racist”, “thick” and “gammon” will cease … Continue reading Right Wing Libertarian!

Jesus, Marx & Greta

BY DAVID EYLES Those of us conservatives, who sit on our park benches and watch and observe the political world go by – scurrying hither and thither, forming allegiances and breaking them up again in their enormous, squabbling rats’ nest – have noticed a strange alliance that has formed in recent years. The Labour Party has almost completely abandoned its Jewish MPs – most have … Continue reading Jesus, Marx & Greta

Machine Hypocrisy

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Attend an Extinction Rebellion meeting and there are dozens of iPhones and laptops on show. Did you know you can buy Extinction Rebellion decals to stick on your car bumper – you know, near the exhaust pipe? Visit the anti-capitalists at Momentum headquarters and the place is more dripping in capitalist tech than you’d imagine. There’s a Fairtrade café in Bristol cram-packed … Continue reading Machine Hypocrisy
