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
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
BY JAMIE FOSTER As ever huffing and puffing to no avail, Ian Blackford, the SNP leader in Westminster, opened the SNP conference with a claim that Brexit is a democratic outrage that crystallises the case for independence in Scotland. His claim is based on the fact that Scotland backed Remain in the referendum by a margin of 62 to 38%. He said that the SNP … Continue reading The Broken Record of the SNP
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
