Lamentable Lammy

BY FRANK HAVILAND The accolade of ‘Britain’s worst MP’ is fiercely contested at the quietest of times.  In these days of open treachery and blistering incompetence though, you have to really go some to be in the running. Cue David Lammy, the one-man race awareness course, who occasionally moonlights as the Labour MP for Tottenham. Despite being a mere backbencher, Lammy is rarely out of … Continue reading Lamentable Lammy

UK United in Distrust of May

CSM EDITORIAL Like anxiety, distrust is often not based on concrete and clear information, but rather on a hunch or gut feeling.

TIG is Pointless

BY ANDREW MOODY Yesterday’s news that TIG MPs are being thrown off select committees marks the beginning of the end for this group of “People’s Vote” campaigners. The Ex-Labour ones are already in the process of being unseated by Momentum. The Ex-Tory ones are not welcome in their own constituencies. In short, TIG is gone. Why?
