BY JIM WEBSTER I came across this almost certainly apocryphal story. Apparently a town gets its first 5G phone mast. Almost immediately all sorts of people develop medical conditions. A protest group against the mast is formed. The local council arrange a public meeting and bring in the representatives of the company that erected the mast. In it everybody is waving their doctors notes and … Continue reading Spreading Muck
BY JOHN NASH People, particularly sane, level-headed people, typified by readers of CSM, may often wonder how large numbers of apparently normal, everyday people can be whipped into a mob capable of monstrous and inhuman acts. May I introduce you to a particularly evil monster of such outrageous proportion that you may suffer the vapours simply reading about him. He is called Ron Thompson, mass … Continue reading The Strange Case of Ron Thompson
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I felt sorry for our Deputy Editor – my mate, James Bembridge – this weekend when he came under attack from Owen Jones and his leftist hordes in one of those Twitter pile-ons the Left so relish. There were numerous tweets suggesting that Bembers’ hard-drive needed checking. Bembers was accused of being a ‘nonce’ by multiple smearers, some of whom – including … Continue reading Nonce!
BY EFFIE DEANS The fundamental misunderstanding that forms the basis of Scottish nationalism has been undermined by a statement from the European Commission. When the UK finally left the EU, the Government decided not to continue to take part in the Erasmus Program, but instead to replace it with the Turing Scheme. The SNP objected and asked the European Commission whether Scotland could join the … Continue reading Deciding Erasmus
BY ANDREW MOODY A characteristic common to all intelligence officers, East and West, is that they have a special open-mindedness. For them nothing is impossible, just because it is improbable. That’s a quote I’ve pilfered from the late Robert Anton Wilson, former editor of Playboy and co-author of the mind-bending conspiracy novel The Illuminatus! Trilogy, which I feel fits in perfectly for this review of … Continue reading Extraterrestrial
VICAR Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I trust that You and Your loved ones are well and warm. It seems We name even the slightest storm these days but the Beast from the East does have a certain ring about it that makes one bring in sufficient logs for the fire. This week I would like to focus on patience. “Rejoice in hope, be … Continue reading A Prayer for Patience
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Haunting the Prime Minister throughout the corona crisis have been the ghosts of crises past: Blair, Brown and May. Voices one would only risk hearing at after dinner speeches were it not for a media all too ready to resurrect them. We could add Major to this list, but it seems he is watching the cricket more nowadays – his carping from … Continue reading Backseat Drivers
BY RUPERT MATTHEWS In 2019, rural crime cost the UK £54.3million, the highest total cost in eight years with every region in the country seeing an increase in rural crime. Rebecca Davidson, Rural Affairs Specialist for the NFU, wrote the following in the NFU’s 2020 Rural Crime Report: ‘Rural crime is like a wave as organized criminality spreads through our villages, farms and fells, affecting … Continue reading Reviving Rural Policing
BY JAMES MELVILLE “We respect our elders. There is wisdom that comes from experience, and I am not going to stop learning from wise counsel.” ― Marcia Fudge One of the many collateral damages of the Covid crisis has been the profoundly negative impact of well-being and mental health on our elderly people. The elderly haven’t been asked what they want to do. … Continue reading What Do the Elderly Want?
CSM EDITORIAL It’s bad enough having fibbing journalists like Carole Cadwalladr – the word journalist used in the loosest sense of course – crowdfunding their court costs and damages bill from gullible supporters. It’s shocking seeing how Chris Packham and his girlfriend have distorted the truth to crowdfund the bringing of tigers from mainland Europe to the Isle of Wight zoo. But having criminals running … Continue reading Sabs Abusing Charity Status
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It is obvious that there are believers on both sides of the deficient Left-Right political spectrum who have substituted religion with other beliefs. People who have taken a leap of faith to believe all-out in an idea or theory. The primary aim of the conquistadores was Empire, sanctioned by concurrent conversions. In the case of the Left, the Wokerati engage in a … Continue reading Overplaying Postmodernism
BY EFFIE DEANS I talked to someone who lives in England the other day who wanted to know about the latest developments in Scottish politics. I mentioned the scandal surrounding the Alex Salmond Inquiry and the possibility that Nicola Sturgeon was involved in a conspiracy against Mr Salmond. This was the first time my friend had heard anything about it. Sturgeon remains popular in Scotland … Continue reading Sturgeon Surrounded
BY ANDREW MOODY “I’m mad on technology,” Adolf Hitler told a dinner party for his inner circle in 1942. Less than three years later and the Fuhrer was dead, Germany had surrendered, and as the dust settled on World War Two, more than sixteen hundred Nazi technicians had defected to America. A top-secret plan to win the arms race against Russia, who the US felt … Continue reading Operation Paperclip
VICAR Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I trust that You and Your loved ones are well. As we approach the second month of the third lockdown I can understand why You may not be feeling one hundred percent and I send You my heartfelt empathy. It is at times like this that We must remember that without light there is no darkness and without … Continue reading A Prayer for Hope
BY JON ALEXANDER It’s been a common theme that the white middle-classes of the UK and America have, for many years, struggled to define themselves. The rich/elite and upper-classes have focused on their own lives, maintaining their status quo and living in their own little bubbles – rarely letting anyone in. The strong identity working-class have their own traditions and history, they embraced community, worked … Continue reading Gary & Karen
