Woke is a Joke

BY DANIEL JUPP The reason why it is pointless for someone such as I to engage in debate with a woke person is because I am already defined as guilty by their worldview, and as a person to be dismissed without listening to. I am to be met with laughter. All of my views are to be met with laughter. If I advance my views … Continue reading Woke is a Joke

Multiculturalism & Multiracialism

BY ALEX STORY A week or so ago, Suella Braverman spoke about the country’s right to control her borders and decide who can live within them. She referred to Angela Merkel, Germany’s former Chancellor, who said in a speech in 2010, that multiculturalism had utterly failed. At the time, Nicolas Sarkozy of France and David Cameron, our erstwhile Prime Minister, said much the same thing. … Continue reading Multiculturalism & Multiracialism


BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Watching the FA Cup Final on Saturday, it was fascinating studying the body language and facial expressions of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. Ten Hag knew that, against the odds, his side had already beaten Manchester City earlier in the season but that the chances of repeating this feat were slim. His furrowed brow was a permanent feature during the match … Continue reading Checkmate

Blue & Yellow

BY NIALL McCRAE Products are made in factories, but brands are processed in the mind. A remarkable feat of the government’s Covid-19 response in March 2020 was the readily produced slogans (such as ‘hands, face, space’) and other messaging. Initially the colours were red and yellow, signifying an emergency, but later the colour scheme changed. The constant barrage of marketing for the booster injections in … Continue reading Blue & Yellow

My Hometown. And Water

BY SEAN WALSH We live in Devizes, a town which nudges the contours of Salisbury Plain: an army redoubt devoted to the prevention of significant war, and home not just to military training exercises but to strange goings on. Ghostly goings on, actually, and there is a supernatural component to life here which is pretty undeniable. It is a weird but wonderful place, bifurcated by … Continue reading My Hometown. And Water

The Laws of Institutions

BY DANIEL JUPP Jupp’s First Law of Institutions: The bigger the institution becomes, the more areas of human life it will declare a compassionate interest in. And this claim of compassionate interest will grow in direct proportion to the reality of the institution becoming ever more divorced from its founding principles and intentions. Eventually the institution will care about and interfere in everything but will … Continue reading The Laws of Institutions

The Drone Generations

BY DANIEL JUPP There are countless kids these days who will never have a single original thought, and equally will never recognise and respect a worthwhile thought from those older than themselves. They will think themselves clever when they sneer at their ancestors, and think themselves enlightened when they repeat fashionable bigotries. They will be incapable of expressing themselves in anything other than memes and … Continue reading The Drone Generations

The Circle Falls

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN A few years ago, I wrote about the circular firing squad of Identity Politics: ‘Leftists by embracing identity politics have become the new racists – they have become so blinkered in the self-destructive, inward-pointing, circular firing squad of postmodernist neo-Marxism that they have lost the ability to see or understand how intolerance shapes politics’ I stick by the analogy. Today we see … Continue reading The Circle Falls

Projection and Reflection

BY SIMON EVANS “Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”― Friedrich W. Nietzsche One of the many surprisingly candid quotes shared on the internet through which Joseph Goebbels revealed at once his Machiavellian perfidy and his admirable artlessness, is this one – invariably shared in meme … Continue reading Projection and Reflection

The 7 Sacraments of Public Health

BY ROGER WATSON The analogies between membership of the Branch Covidian cult and true religion have been drawn before. Other cults with religious parallels exist such as Extinction Rebellion and the general cult of ‘wokery’ described by Andrew Doyle in his book of the same name as ‘The new puritans’. Just as in any religion, including Christianity, there are splinter groups and sects with some … Continue reading The 7 Sacraments of Public Health

Have Faith In Ferrero Rocher 

BY JOHN NASH The annual assault on wallet and digestive system has washed over us again accompanied by a stream of TV charity chuggers hoping to shame us into giving them money for every worthy and unworthy cause on Earth. I watched through heavy eyelids as the “last elephant on Earth” tottered repeatedly across the screen, bracketed by those cheerful adverts for happy funerals. It may … Continue reading Have Faith In Ferrero Rocher 

Don’t Be Kind, Be Good

BY STEWART SLATER Your correspondent is not, he would be the first to admit, one of the world’s natural sportsmen. Scrawny and mal-coordinated, he realised at an early age that his only path to glory would be to play sports which no-one else did. And even then, his achievements were slight. Given this, learning to swim was always likely to be a traumatic process. So … Continue reading Don’t Be Kind, Be Good

The List of Clever Opinions

BY FRANK WRIGHT Noticing certain things and pointing them out is now a dangerous business. Stereotypes are in fact little more than recognised patterns, but to utter one is to invite the ruin of your life. It is a crime in Britain to publish the dictionary definition of “woman” on a billboard in Liverpool because it is deemed to be derisory to men who dress … Continue reading The List of Clever Opinions

The Church Vacuum

BY DANIEL JUPP Despite being an atheist, I’ve come to realise how disastrous our abandonment of Christianity has been. Our entire western moral code was built around the Judaeo-Christian heritage. You simply cannot scrap that without terrible consequences. At one time every village church in England would be packed out, all the time. So much so that religious services were only a part of that. … Continue reading The Church Vacuum

Alinsky’s Great Flaw

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Sometimes, tragic though it may be, I wonder how the spirits of great thinkers are reacting to current events. How many times would Milton Friedman and Friedrich von Hayek have facepalmed at Rishi Sunak during the Covid crisis? How would Edmund Gibbon react to statue toppling? What would John Maynard Keynes make of Kwasinomics?  Would Antonio Gramsci be turning in his grave … Continue reading Alinsky’s Great Flaw

Just Imagine

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Just imagine if We Brits had a broadcaster across TV, the Web and Radio that was free to access, funded by adverts, therefore reflecting the market, Our Nation. One that backed everything British rather than cocking a snook at it. A service that delivered factual news and illuminating documentaries that boosted British Democracy and, by shining an investigative light, held those in … Continue reading Just Imagine
