BY ALEXIA JAMES The cases of antisemitism right at the heart of Momentum’s leadership are infamous. The cases of antisemitism linked to Momentum via its members or past members are rife. This is partly because of the Hard Left’s fixation with Palestine but more to do with the bogeyman hatred the group tries to foster as part of its activism, which manifests itself in Tory … Continue reading Churches Should Ban Momentum
BY RUTH LEVINE Jews hold that just months after the people of Israel left Egypt in the year 2448 from creation (1313 BCE), they sinned by worshipping a golden calf. Moses ascended Mount Sinai and prayed to God to forgive them. After two 40-day stints on the mountain, full Divine favour was obtained.

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN During some rainy days of holiday this summer, I was forced to watch some Poldark episodes by my persuasive wife and I confess that I enjoyed the performance of the actor Christian Brassington as the loathsome Reverend Osborne Whitworth.

BY ALEXIA JAMES Many accuse the Argentinian Pope Francis of socialist, even communist leanings – is he either? Take a look at Francis’ body language during past meetings with foreign leaders. The people he seemed most comfortable with were the socialists and communists, even though they stand accused of murdering and torturing their own people while espousing Marxist political strategies which have caused economic mayhem … Continue reading St Francis of Hypocrisy?
BY SAM WHITE There was something troubling about sections of the media’s sneering reaction to Ukip’s statement on the subject of face veils on Monday. The party wants to prohibit the custom of completely covering one’s face in public, as practised by some Muslims.
