BY ALEXIA JAMES Last week’s election results were a shot in the arm for the Conservative Party. Hartlepool was a great success while gaining Northumberland Council was also a positive step forward – in 2017, the Tories had lost overall control of the council. Glen Sanderson, Conservative leader of Northumberland County Council, said he believed the party had “steady” and “solid” leadership following a turbulent … Continue reading Tory Recruitment Deficiencies Laid Bare
BY ALEXIA JAMES This is the fifth year that this magazine has backed the campaign to increase sentences for those engaged in the wicked act of dog theft. Previous requests can be found here, here, here and here. A prospective Police Commissioner discusses the subject here. Over four years ago I wrote: I want You, the Reader, to consider the effect on the dog. On … Continue reading Publish Dog Thieves’ Faces
BY ALEXIA JAMES It seems that the diehard Remainers have already decided that Brexit was a waste of time and has resulted in abject failure – less than a month after the UK’s exit from the transition period. At the weekend Michel Barnier was busy painting a false picture of EU unity and pretending that now “we all see the cost of Brexit” – again, … Continue reading Brexit Already a Failure!
BY ALEXIA JAMES The population of the US is 328.2 million. That’s almost five times the UK population. So how come they end up with a presidential race between the venal Donald Trump and the senile pervert Joe Biden? Sniffing Joe is not all there. He makes Ronald Reagan’s latter Alzheimer’s years look coherent: Biden’s a sex pest? Don’t believe me? Watch this: As for … Continue reading America’s Dispiriting Dilemma
BY ALEXIA JAMES No, Brit Girl, the Germans do not now have a better sense of humour than the British. 30,000 people across 15 countries were asked to name both the “funniest” (“best at making people laugh”) and “least funny” nationality in a poll conducted by Badoo.com. The Germans came out last. They were even below the Belgians. Germans are as funny as Nish Kumar, … Continue reading Germans Are Not Funny
BY ALEXIA JAMES The Lock-down has been a real test for relationships. Weeks on end stuck in the same few rooms has been too much for some and yet other relationships which were getting stale have re-found their spark and are now flourishing. Close confinement and financial strife are cited as the key reasons behind the spike in divorce inquiries which Co-op Legal Services reported … Continue reading Lockdown’s Strained Marriages
BY ALEXIA JAMES It must be said that mainstream media has become extraordinarily unalluring during this pandemic. People are learning to live without. On a Zoom business call just yesterday one of those present asked if anyone had seen Boris’ latest Coronavirus press conference and four out of six on the video call admitted they had not bothered tuning into even one. Meanwhile the newspapers … Continue reading Covidian Nonexistence
BY ALEXIA JAMES Dear Remoaners, I wanted to take this opportunity to apologise on behalf of fellow Brexiteers who have spent the past days gloating. I empathise completely. With them of course. In fact I am shocked that there hasn’t been more sneering from fellow winners. For you losers have thoroughly disgraced our country and deserve all the grief you are getting – for over … Continue reading Dear Remoaners
BY ALEXIA JAMES This is a time not to be complacent, cheered by positive poll results. It is a time to ask everyone you know to get out and vote on Thursday. It is a time to be especially circumspect about electoral fraud. A time to be humble and still a bit fearful. The thought of a Friday 13th with Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister … Continue reading Vote Boris to End Crap Choirs
BY ALEXIA JAMES It was always going to happen. Our public broadcaster the BBC is primarily funded by the licence fee, supplemented by income from commercial subsidiaries. And the number of licence fees received by the BBC has been decreasing markedly, principally because the word is out that BBC programmes are not worth £154.50 a year when competitors like Amazon Prime and Netflix return more value … Continue reading BBC’s Last Roll
Robert Adam’s ‘Animal Co-operative’ is the story of the EEC and the EU, up to recent times, told in the allegorical style of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. You can purchase it here. Country Squire Magazine’s Alexia James interviews Robert. AJ: What drove you to write the book? RA: Ever since reading Animal Farm in English class at school (along with many millions of others over … Continue reading Animal Co-Operative
BY ALEXIA JAMES It’s good news that former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe has announced she is set to return to politics – for the Brexit Party. Widdecombe stands for many of us when she says she would still vote Conservative in the upcoming local elections (no reason to get rid of decent Conservative councillors who are likely personally to vote for the Brexit Party in European … Continue reading We’re with Widdecombe
BY ALEXIA JAMES Is Theresa May mad? Is she on a suicide mission of some kind? Seeking to cause as much damage as possible wherever she can? Is she playing a game of Opposite Machiavelli, where at all times one does the opposite of what cunning Niccolo urged for the prince? Does she have something against Democracy? At what point did voters become an inconvenience … Continue reading Political Suicide
BY ALEXIA JAMES Remoaners like Philip Hammond and Nicky Morgan still don’t get it. The country voted to leave the EU – that does not make the 17.4 Million’s true representatives in the House of Commons, personified by the ERG, “extremists” as Hammond called them, nor does it make them “likely to leave the Conservative Party” as Morgan has suggested. Hammond now knows he is … Continue reading The Cameron Intake Errors
BY ALEXIA JAMES I’d never previously paid much attention to Emily Thornberry, apart from making a mental note that she reminded me somewhat of snooty Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter. Why should I? She seemed like yet another Corbynite letting down the word “shadow”. I mean, John McDonnell a shadow chancellor? Diane Abbott a shadow home secretary? Angela Rayner shadow secretary of state for education? … Continue reading Why So Arrogant?
