Great British Baker Offence

BY FRANK HAVILAND I have to confess, as an unforgivably straight white male, the list of things I must be offended by keeps me up at night. Last week alone, I had a harrowing time trying to reconcile why my two-year-old is not demonstrably transgender; downplay suspicions that my pet goldfish is a closet Tommy Robinson supporter, and decide whether eating an LGBT BLT sandwich … Continue reading Great British Baker Offence

Schroders Caught Up in L&G Mess

CSM Legal & General’s charm offensive to its shareholders didn’t go unnoticed by the Squires yesterday morning. After a piece on the Today Programme describing how L&G would from now on only invest in sound companies and avoid any which were badly affecting our climate and environment, articles appeared across the Web like this one outlining L&G’s new approach. Companies that ignore environmental issues, planning … Continue reading Schroders Caught Up in L&G Mess

Just Don’t Get It

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN There are certain words and phrases that should stand out as obvious red flags. People who talk in a paranoid fashion about “they” all the time, or warn you to “not use Google and use DuckDuckGo instead”. Those who bring up the “fifth plane” whenever 9/11 is mentioned.

I Want My ITV

BY BEN PENSANT Despite appearances to the contrary, television drama is the last place you’d look to find turbo-wokeness.

Their films are better quality, their best e-warriors have ditched their bedrooms for studios and content can be found across the board adopting one or another worldview. The Americans even have the #WalkAway movement, which is beginning to really grate with the enemy…. “Once upon a … Continue reading The BBC Must Fall

The Ducking Stool

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND Don’t do it, Lord Sugar. Refuse. Point blank. You cannot win. The charismatic Amstrad boss and erstwhile telly star of The Apprentice has landed himself in hot water of late – for tweeting ‘spicy’ memes on the internet. How dank, as the youngsters say. Sugar’s bosses at Creepy Uncle Beeb however were not so impressed with his antics and the modern-day mob … Continue reading The Ducking Stool

City Life is Far Superior

BY NICK PEARCE What would we do without the BBC every now and again underlining the superiority of urban living? Or The Guardian simultaneously asking scary questions in headlines like, “the British countryside is being killed by herbicides and insecticides – can anything save it?” The BBC lets us know that “City residents tend to suffer from higher levels of asthma, allergies and depression. But that’s OK…. “they also tend … Continue reading City Life is Far Superior
