CC2019

BY BEN EVERITT Tonic water is being stockpiled in Deansgate. Gin, too. And beer, for that matter. The M6 is braced for the rumble of Discoveries as the Tory herd makes its biennial migration to the watering holes of Manchester. Always eventful, the Manchester conference is a bear pit for Tory activists. MPs, staffers, stalwarts and all, must each enter the grand security of the … Continue reading CC2019

Woke

BY ANDREW MOODY The left, or rather the anti-democrats, are losing, and come Halloween and Britain’s exit from the EU, they will have lost. Meanwhile, thanks be to God for Titania McGrath (AKA satirist Andrew Doyle) and her magnificent polemic WOKE, which turns the tables on the MSM culture of outrage with all its immaturity and illogicality. Titania, an upper middle class social justice warrior … Continue reading Woke

The Tory Rural Deficit

CSM EDITORIAL It is depressing that only 30 percent of people think the Tories understand rural Britain. A recent poll sponsored by the Countryside Alliance found in addition that only 8.5% of people thought rural life had improved under the Tories. The key question that follows is does this mean that voting patterns could change in the countryside? Traditionally rural seats have backed the Conservative … Continue reading The Tory Rural Deficit

May now Erdogan

BY JON ALEXANDER With European and Local Elections just on the horizon, realisation is finally starting to dawn on the “it’s fine” brigade of the Conservative Party. Nigel Farage’s week-old Brexit party is now in the lead in polls and expected to win a landslide in Europe. Meanwhile the Tories are expected to suffer heavy losses in council elections. I’ve seen a lot of frantic … Continue reading May now Erdogan

Poor Little Tiggiwinkles

CSM EDITORIAL Once Brexit is over, what do the so-called Independent Group have in common? How can Anna Soubry, who defended George Osborne’s austerity packages one after the other, sit in a new party – if that is what the TIG becomes – alongside profligate Labour MPs, whose default position is to drain dry the public coffers? Allen and Wollaston are oddballs and how they … Continue reading Poor Little Tiggiwinkles

Vegetarians Don’t Eat Fish

CSM EDITORIAL The Conservative Party is split by Brexit – to the extent that Soubry and Wollaston may jump soon. The Government is an odd mix of Remainers and Brexiteers and so hardly the meritocracy of days of yore. Perhaps that can be excused in the run up to Brexit – which dominates everything political these days – but afterwards the Government should take care … Continue reading Vegetarians Don’t Eat Fish

A Message From the Countryside

BY ANNE RUTH For the first time in a long time, this Conservative Party Conference shall be attended by many furious exurbanites and rural folk. What the Conservative Party must start doing is begin engaging with these people – the people – who have been forgotten about. These are the millions of people across the UK who don’t stand out because of what they wear, … Continue reading A Message From the Countryside

Smear Bingo

BY JOHN ISMAEL Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has a serious antisemitism problem. That is a fact. Its bigots’ widespread hatred of Israel, its loathing of religion – and yet its Muslim block votes – make the political party’s antisemitism problem one that will not go away, save for mass expulsions of Momentum members and Corbynites on the far left of the party. So, what do … Continue reading Smear Bingo
