BY BEN PENSANT Little good has come from the twin horrors of Brexit and Trump, unleashed three years ago to strike fear and loathing into the hearts of celebrity QCs, milquetoast columnists, and shit-for-brains actors everywhere. Sure, leaving the EU has emboldened decent liberals who spent years fighting hatred and bigotry, gifting them a free pass to be hateful and bigoted towards 17 million people … Continue reading The Fall of Roger Crouton
CSM EDITORIAL Nigel Farage has said that a vote for his Brexit Party would be a vote for a WTO Brexit – his name for a no deal Brexit.

BY AMELIA CROSBY Most of us know the importance of wearing sunscreen in the summer months to avoid sunburn and damage, but it really should be a year-round preventive health measure.

HANNIBAL LECTER RETURNS! It seems strange in today’s post-digital multimedia age that a paperback book could generate that much anticipation and interest. The … Continue reading Harris’ Hannibal
BY PAUL NEWALL Every dog has its day and Donald Trump is about to have his. The Mueller Investigation has found him to be innocent of any crime, which is quite amazing when you think of a two-year investigation and the extensive resources that the American justice system brought to bear, pressured by Democrats who detest Trump. Trump is in effect squeaky clean but the … Continue reading May & Steele?

EDITOR I was warned. I did not expect much from Thursday’s reaching out to the anti-hunt crowd via my message to them in my capacity as Editor of Country Squire Magazine. I had been warned by readers that the anti-hunt contingent were aggressive and incapable of civilised conversation. Still, I reached out, as this magazine is neither pro-hunt nor anti – it is a platform … Continue reading Well That Went Well
PRESS RELEASE May 1st is the start of the hunting year – and This is Hunting UK today launches a campaign to re-emphasise hunting’s place as a vitally important cog in the countryside mechanism.
