Feminism is Lost

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN In recent years, directionless feminists have pivoted effortlessly from denouncing a man for being a bad husband to denouncing a man for being a good one. Now feminists have gone to war on beautiful women being used for “decoration”, resulting recently in the withdrawal of Grid Girls from Formula 1 and walk-on girls from PDC Darts.

History Written by Victors, Losers

Gibbon’s Caution

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Edward Gibbon wrote in his Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire: “[A] distinction of every kind soon became criminal.

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It’s Lambophobia Awareness Month, folks! That’s right. It’s the month when all of us are subjected to pricks on our social conscience; obliged to feel pity for all “oppressed lambs” everywhere – especially those bigoted, supremacist, two-faced Lambists who dreamt up all kinds of faux victimhood in the past for attempted political gain and now promote Lambophobia Awareness Month on infidelitous Twitter. … Continue reading Lambophobia

The Power of the British Countryside

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Any 21st Century British political party operating without a Countryside Spokesperson should take a long, hard look at themselves. Official figures show that the UK rural population will increase by 6 per cent over the next decade as people choose to leave cities and settle in the countryside. 17.4% of Britons live in rural areas – 11,337,632 people. Cities may seem to … Continue reading The Power of the British Countryside
