BY STEWART SLATER How do you solve a problem like Sir Keir? With an approval rating of –48% in the latest Yougov poll, something needs to be done, but what? Perhaps he needs more policies – there is a plethora of think tanks which can supply those. Perhaps he needs to appear a bit less stiff – there are plenty of left-leaning comedians happy to … Continue reading Labour’s Poshness Paradox
THE CITY GRUMP Why do the leaders of our same old political parties remain clueless when it comes to understanding what enterprise is all about? Last week, the lawyer who now runs Her Majesty’s Opposition provided an epic display of this ineptitude when he laid out his vision for our post pandemic economy. What is even more dotty is the Tories, who used to have … Continue reading Enterprise Oil up against Politicians’ Water
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Where most saw a pensioner of unremarkable intellect or image, Corbynites saw a man of almost mystical significance, and if the support for his new project is anything to go by, the significance hasn’t waned. The launch video that sees him wax ineloquently about social justice issues feels like a call back to 90s televangelism; indeed, the website tells us what Corbyn … Continue reading Where did the Hard Left Go?
CSM EDITORIAL Fortunately, the next UK General Election is a long way away. It is scheduled to be held on Thursday 2nd May 2024, in line with the Fixed-term Parliaments Act. Nonetheless, presuming Covid restrictions fade by the end of 2022, there are certain predictions that can be made even now. Despite by then 14 years of Tory rule, Labour has little hope of winning … Continue reading Trojan Labour Unelectable
BY MARK HOOK Three generations of my family voted for you. Without thinking. That was the thing to do. In our area in the North East there was only coal. That meant we voted red for working people. When Blair came to power he called himself a socialist, but we didn’t really know what that meant, just that Labour looked out for the little guy … Continue reading Epitaph for Labour
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN While the highly respected journalist John Ware’s attack in the Jewish Chronicle on “deceitful propaganda” was a wholly merited blast at anti-Semitic Corbynite ideologues – the Lansmans, Mendozas and Rachels from Swindon of this world – John came up with some useful paragraphs for those running blogs and websites which by choice or nature are outwith the mainstream media and regulatory control: … Continue reading Ware’s Almost Perfect Wisdom
BY BEN PENSANT Lord Corbyn may have been perfect in every way but ultimately he was just too nice. And there’s no better example of this too-niceness than his attempts to appeal to normal people instead of targeting lunatics. It pains me to say it, but as thrilling as it was abusing people on the internet for four years, I now realise that instead of … Continue reading Where We Leftists Went Wrong
BY VICTORIA CHILDS Dear Dirty People, I am eighty-one years old and throughout my lifetime I have been told that being unhygienic is not a positive attribute. I would never think of picking my nose or eating a dropped jellybean off a train carriage floor. I take a shower or bath at least once a day and always wash my hands after going to … Continue reading Dear Dirty People
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The suggestions coming from inside the Labour Party and Momentum that they should set up a “Rebuttals Unit” after their shellacking in December’s General Election are somewhat amusing. As if merely rebutting the truth would have assuaged Corbyn of guilt or shall assist any future Labour leader. To understand the way these Hard-Left Labour drones think one must never fail to remember … Continue reading Shy Labour
BY BEN IRVINE ‘Communism is not Socialism. Marxism is not Socialism. The Marxists have stolen the term and confused its meaning… We chose to call ourselves the National Socialists. We are not internationalists. Our socialism is national.’ – Adolf Hitler Was Hitler a socialist? On the face of it, the answer is obvious: a resounding yes. From the start of his political career in 1919 … Continue reading Was Hitler a Socialist?
BY WILL HOLLIS It has been nearly a month since the General Election, and Jeremy Corbyn’s subsequent decision that he will resign, and the Labour Party’s search for a new leader is in full swing. The period of reflection does not seem to be going well, and they are yet to truly address what it was about Jeremy Corbyn that the wider electorate found so … Continue reading Distancing from Grandpa
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Sport teaches us the consequences of changing parameters. From racing – the softness of the turf. From fly-fishing – the entomology of larvae. From cricket – final innings, spinner-exploitable pitch cracks. In short, there are horses for courses, flies for certain rivers and months; on cloudy days some bowlers worth shining the conker for. Parameters are rarely if ever fixed entities. The … Continue reading Fatal Idée Fixe
BY FRANK HAVILAND As Dirty Harry famously put it, opinions are like arseholes: everybody’s got one. Celebrity opinions on the other hand are more like Hugh Grant electoral endorsements: amusing curios, with all the efficacy of oral sex from Siri. So forgive me if I can’t get too excited about December’s angst-ridden multi-millionaire, ‘Stormzy’, or Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Jr., as I prefer to … Continue reading Brits Are Not Racist
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE I thought it rather fitting that the charity ‘Period Power’ chose that boy with the curious habit of making frenzied fisting gesticulations to be their patron. Fitting because my thoughts on Owen Jones could be condensed into that four letter word which so eloquently describes the private parts of a woman. But I’m afraid that today, calling him that simply won’t do; … Continue reading Owen Jones-Corbyn
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The rumours that Hitler escaped Europe after the Second World War only became credible to conspiracy theorists because the Russians hid the truth from the West – they had collected a file of witness statements relating to Hitler’s suicide and had taken Hitler’s teeth and part of his skull from Berlin to Moscow in May 1945. Totalitarian Stalin’s strategy was to instead … Continue reading Operation Myth
