Macron’s Geography Lesson

BY EFFIE DEANS France is a rather odd place. It is not merely the chunk of the European continent across the Channel. It also includes two islands in the Caribbean, Guadeloupe and Martinique, a little bit of South America, French Guiana, and two islands in the Indian Ocean, Réunion and Mayotte. These are part of France in just the same way as Picardy and Normandy. … Continue reading Macron’s Geography Lesson

Election Blues

BY PAUL NEWALL I don’t know about you, but I was quite disappointed at the Tory landslide victory on the 6th of May, not because I’ve returned to my Bolshevik roots, more that for the first time in over 20 years we have no meaningful opposition and that isn’t healthy for our democracy. In 1997, Tony Blair found himself standing on a Labour landslide with … Continue reading Election Blues

What’s Eating British Capitalism?

THE CITY GRUMP “Current existing systems massively reward high status well connected people” As usual Dominic Cummings hit the nail on the head when answering a question on checks and balances in front of the Science and Technology Committee last week (I sometimes fantasise over what could have been achieved if the Blessed Margaret had worked with Cummings instead of our current dissembling PM). I … Continue reading What’s Eating British Capitalism?

Stig

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN There’s a homeless fellow some of the locals and I have been helping out during this year of lockdowns. He’s in his forties and inhabits a tent in some woodland not far from our village. The owner of the woods was happy for him to stay there as long as he didn’t set off any fires. The local homeless charities worked alongside … Continue reading Stig

The Peril of Nord Stream 2

BY DANIEL KAWCZYNSKI MP Post Brexit we must back America and NATO over Germany’s dangerous over dependence on Russia and the ramifications that has for our Eastern European partners.  In December 2019, the United States moved to impose sanctions on companies involved in ‘Nord Stream 2’, the Russian bid to build an energy pipeline under the Baltic Sea to Germany. Now that we have finally … Continue reading The Peril of Nord Stream 2

Vacuum of Leadership

BY FRANK HAVILAND Four years ago to this day, Britain once again showed why she has always been a world leader, never a follower. Against the expressed will of her politicians, the relentless pooh-poohing of the media, and the eternal shrieks of ‘racist!’, the British people stood firm and made the right call, to divorce from the European Union. Four years on from that referendum … Continue reading Vacuum of Leadership

King Solomon’s Choice

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It is in the best interests of the country to continue to expose the anti-Semites who flourished under Jeremy Corbyn’s (for want of a better word) leadership of the Labour Party. Having publications such as the Jewish Chronicle expose anti-Semites like the toxic Bristol University professor David Miller and the lunatic Editor of The Canary, Kerry-Anne Mendoza, is beneficial but not sufficient. … Continue reading King Solomon’s Choice

Article 50 Illegality a Sideshow

BY JAMIE FOSTER Having entered the transition stage of the Article 50 process Boris Johnson will now negotiate Britain’s future relationship with the EU. This stage will come to an end on the 31st December this year at which point the UK will officially leave the EU and its regulations. It is Boris Johnson’s aim to have secured a trade deal with the EU by … Continue reading Article 50 Illegality a Sideshow

The Watershed Election

BY FRANK HAVILAND Gaining 66 seats, and securing the Conservative Party’s largest majority since Margaret Thatcher, Boris Johnson has reclaimed the keys to Number 10 while dispelling any remaining questions on the legitimacy of his tenancy. As the smoke clears from election night celebrations, it’s time to take stock of where we are. Britain has emphatically rejected Corbynism, but it’s more than just the naked … Continue reading The Watershed Election
