THE CITY GRUMP I am not a fan of Donald Trump. It has been evident for years now that he is immature, narcissistic and obsessed by power, which is of course why his foreign policy has been such a great success. It takes one to know one and the autocracies of China, Iran, North Korea, etc certainly met their match in him. Accordingly when the … Continue reading The Rattled West
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE It seems to be a feature of British conservatism that its acolytes tend to spend more time convincing people they don’t belong to it than they ever do trying to convert them to it. Many of them will give the impression that they aren’t truly committed to conservative aims sooner than they would defend them. Trump was a blessing to these cock-crowing … Continue reading Imagining a Trump Win from Here
BY ALEXIA JAMES Just when the BBC was collecting some brownie points for providing useful and entertaining education material for our home-schooled children in lock-down, those over at BBC News have once again reminded the nation that suicide can be a slow and drawn-out affair – death by a thousand cuts. BBC Editors have been exposed selectively editing a Trump speech and the edit is … Continue reading BBC News Caught Red-Handed
BY ANDREW MOODY English celebrities aren’t a patch on our American cousins. The teeth! The collagen injections! The breast enhancements! The penile implants! Us Brits prefer curling up with our smartphones tweeting sarcastic comments about Brexit (Pro or Remain, your choice) whilst farting into our favourite sofa cushion. Those that want to actually crack the media industry need to be six foot classically trained beauties … Continue reading Dear Trump
CSM EDITORIAL The battered and divided Remain lobby have been talking this week of opportunism. Opportunistically creating a period of calm during which Brexit apathy takes hold – during which time backbenchers who wish to reverse Brexit can grab the Brexit controls when most Brits are not looking. Since last week’s fights there has been a period of calm and quiet. The Prime Minister has … Continue reading Snatching Victory from the Jaws of Defeat
BY JAMIE FOSTER Owen Jones caused the viewers of Good Morning Britain consternation when he announced he was protesting President Trump’s state visit on behalf of the majority of the country. Viewers quickly took to Twitter to point out Jones was arrogant and delusional and did not speak for them. The controversial columnist seemed to have misjudged the mood of the country when he decided … Continue reading Alas Trump & Jones
BY JAMIE FOSTER “For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. Maybe it comes from anger, because I’m outraged by cruel absurdities, the hypocrisy that exists everywhere, even within yourself, where it’s hardest to see.” Robin Williams There is nothing new about hypocrisy, it … Continue reading Bring Back Integrity
BY JOHN ISMAEL Ask a political scientist to come up with a formula for a radical entity that can most annoy Leftists. Who or what would you imagine that they would create? A reincarnation of the Reverend Ian Paisley? Andrew Neil perhaps? Enoch Powell? The late Andrew Breitbart? What about Michael Portillo? Imagine these political scientists with their imaginary cauldrons, concocting this anti-Leftist kryptonite. What … Continue reading Trump’s Kryptonite
BY BEN PENSANT Donald Trump has done some truly despicable things. From deporting transgender soldiers to mocking a disabled beauty queen, from building a wall around Charlottesville to grabbing his daughter’s p****, there are few depths this dangerous knave hasn’t plumbed in the name of white supremacy. Yet just when we think he can’t stoop any lower, he horrifies us again with his alarming capacity … Continue reading When a Man Loathes a Woman
US President Donald Trump is talking tough about wayward North Korea. But what can he do about the North Korean regime which drowns its population in propaganda and continues to crank up the pressure on South Korea, neighbouring countries and the US? If you were in the White House what would you do? Dove or Hawk? Continue reading What to Do About North Korea?
Don, Just a quick one mate. As you know, I’m not one for complaining or sucking my teeth but I have a couple of tiny problems. I’m good with lions but I really haven’t spent much time with bears. I’m not entirely sure that I have room for even a tame one in my caravan, but you know best. I’m really grateful for the work … Continue reading A Builder’s Lament
BY JAMIE FOSTER Mr Jamie Foster, a fox & President-Elect Donald J Trump The world’s most powerful democracy has spoken. Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the USA. Time for us Brits to stop sneering at the choices that the US electorate faced and work out what this really means for us. The received idiocy of the expert commentators and pollsters has … Continue reading Trumped and Out Foxed
BY JAMIE FOSTER Sitting in the South West of England, where the pilgrim fathers set off from in the hope of a new world and the freedom and opportunity it promised, I can only manage a wry smile when I think of where it led them. This land of the free and home of the brave; this country that produced Lincoln, Washington and Reagan. Has … Continue reading Nervous Breakdown USA?
