The Extraordinary Brendan Stone

Professor Brendan Stone is certainly extraordinary. Now in his fifties, Brendan is a Senior Academic Fellow at The University of Sheffield. This is quite a turnaround for a man who at 14 became extremely mentally ill, at 19 was in a mental hospital, at 20 became a suicide survivor and at 23 became homeless. For two decades Brendan lived what he describes as a hard … Continue reading The Extraordinary Brendan Stone

Long Live the Traitors

BY SAM WHITE The right looks for converts, the left for traitors. So runs the famous saying and it’s true, but feels incomplete. The modern left sniffs around obsessively for racists, homophobes, pronoun-sceptics, Islam-doubters, and any other kind of careless bigot you can imagine, with the possible exception of anti-Semites, to whom the hard left is more likely to give a free pass and an … Continue reading Long Live the Traitors

The Corbynista Excuse Handbook

BY BEN PENSANT If Jeremy Corbyn loses on June 8th, expect the Corbynistas to draw on these five typical Labour excuses: 1. Stupidity Should the British people reject both Jezza’s principled socialism and the middle-class movement to stop Brexit, much will be written about the role played by the chaotic ineptness of the opposition. Don’t believe a word of it. Because who but the most educationally subnormal bin-man would fail … Continue reading The Corbynista Excuse Handbook

Labour’s Broken Window Economics

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The Broken Window fallacy – Henry Hazlitt’s take on Frédéric Bastiat’s essay in Economics in One Lesson – is one of the most basic yet oft forgotten economic lessons known to man. Labour’s manifesto yesterday exemplifies the stupidity or cynicism of certain politicians who continue to promulgate that government spending stimulates the economy. It’s the policy of the heroin addict who cannot … Continue reading Labour’s Broken Window Economics

Confessions of a Hunter

BY DEBORAH JANE NICHOLAS The blood curdling screams tore through the air like a hot poker being driven into fresh snow and exceeded the sound level of a glacier calving off the Antarctic Peninsula. If those screams had been heard at 2 a.m on a housing estate in Milton Keynes the police would have been called, an ambulance…heck, it would have warranted an armed response. … Continue reading Confessions of a Hunter

A Lesson for the Left

BY JON ALEXANDER   So Marine Le Pen lost in her bid to become France’s next president.  Naturally, when she lost hundreds and thousands of aggrieved Feminists, anti-white, anti-rich privileged ex-bankers took to the streets to violently protest against this injustice? Don’t be silly. Not one word was uttered in protest. Neither French candidate was ideal, much like America’s election six months previously, but the reactions … Continue reading A Lesson for the Left

Tory Voters No Longer Shy

CSM EDITORIAL In 2015, polls just before the General Election were pointing to another hung parliament. There was a fear on the morning of the 7th of May that Ed Miliband might be able to somehow form a dreadful coalition government with Nicola Sturgeon. Slightly better, a Clegg-Cameron pact seemed a possibility also – a Tory majority seemed so distant that Lord Ashdown threatened to … Continue reading Tory Voters No Longer Shy
