On the Bus with an SJW & a Neo-Nazi

BY SAM WHITE I was on the bus the other day, and to my surprise a conservatively attired neo-Nazi and a blue-haired social justice warrior got on and sat together in front of me. I was waiting for the sparks to fly, but incredibly, they got on like a house on fire. The conversation was fascinating, so I sneaked out my notebook and started discreetly … Continue reading On the Bus with an SJW & a Neo-Nazi

BBC3 is Marvellous

BY BEN PENSANT There are few institutions more infuriatingly disappointing than the BBC. On paper the Beeb should be cherished by progressives everywhere: state-owned, publicly funded, impeccably PC and overwhelmingly staffed by the kind of people who suffer recurring nightmares about post-Brexit hate crime and Islington kale droughts. Yet it can’t help but let itself down with its rampant anti-Corbynism, regularly smearing and disrespecting the … Continue reading BBC3 is Marvellous

The Half Story of Owen Jones

BY BEN PENSANT I’m sure I wasn’t the only Corbynite awoken from their post-Loose Women nap some weeks ago by a flurry of social media alerts informing me something amazing had happened. As I checked my phone my mind buzzed with intrigue: Was Katie Hopkins dead? Were Chumbawamba reforming? Had PM Corbyn trebled Income Support so I can continue to spend my afternoons watching Bargain … Continue reading The Half Story of Owen Jones

Oh Là Là

BY JAMIE FOSTER On 31 July, the French Embassy in the UK decided to tweet about Passchendaele. The decision itself was unsurprising enough, the tweet, however, bordered on trolling. The French Embassy tweeted that Passchendaele provided an opportunity to cherish peace, solidarity and unity brought about by the EU: This seems a tad churlish from a nation that is usually so good at remembering the … Continue reading Oh Là Là

Depression Sufferers Should Man Up?

BY JON ALEXANDER You’ll be surprised to learn that Piers Morgan put his foot in it again.  This time regarding Mental Health. The tweet below is what caused the latest online outrage: Morgan’s tweet provoked someone to comment that considering how high male suicide rates are, this was a rather c**tish thing to say. I’m with that tweeter. However, my first thoughts weren’t really about … Continue reading Depression Sufferers Should Man Up?

Beyond Criticism

BY SAM WHITE Earlier this week it was announced that the Conservative government is planning to make changes to gender identity rules, allowing people to change their birth certificate so that it records them as the sex of their choice, or even just assign themselves a biologically impossible X in place of boy or girl, all without consulting a doctor. Currently it’s necessary to have … Continue reading Beyond Criticism

Gay Africa Must Be Heard

BY JON ALEXANDER With all the recent hype over Trump getting elected, Brexit, the Conservatives staying in power, you’d think that gay rights in the U.K. and U.S. were due to be ripped from us and everything we’ve achieved thrown out of the window.  Naturally, it was just that…hype. Donald Trump was the only candidate to go into the election “pro-gay” as it were, both … Continue reading Gay Africa Must Be Heard

A Week In Identity Politics

BY SAM WHITE If someone were to ask, “what’s the best way to divide society, make everyone hate each other, and bring the whole thing to a state of collapse from the inside?” I might answer with just two words: “identity politics”. It’s difficult to imagine a more regressive approach to life than that endorsed by this horrible philosophy. As a quick reminder, the ideology … Continue reading A Week In Identity Politics
