Time for Optimism

CSM EDITORIAL For Brexiteers the last three years have been as annoying as can be. We’ve had Project Fear thrown at us, a Continuity Remain backlash – thrusting all kinds of muppets into the public conversation – and we’ve had a Prime Minister who both thwarted Brexit and lost the plot. Maybe we should have expected blowback from the European Union – they need our … Continue reading Time for Optimism

It suggests that teachers: Encourage pupils to understand the concept of … Continue reading Comenius Project

Pygmy Week Begins

CSM EDITORIAL Another key week dawns for Brexit. This week the political pygmies all vie for their place in the footnotes of History. When people look back in hundreds of years at how nation states resurfaced in the twenty first century to bask in peaceful cooperation, Brexit will be seen as the starter gun of national freedom from the straitjacket of undemocratic unions – and … Continue reading Pygmy Week Begins

Throw Away the Key

CSM EDITORIAL The questions surrounding the smirking terrorist and liar Ashraf Mahmud Islam are not moral ones, but legal ones, explains ITV News Security Editor Rohit Kachroo. Ashraf Mahmud Islam has been imprisoned in northern Syria since January. Ashraf has been held by Kurdish YPG forces yet his Kurdish captors are unwilling to continue to house him and his fellow captives or put them on trial. They want … Continue reading Throw Away the Key

The King Wanted to Fish

CSM EDITORIAL Yesterday’s outburst by Dominic Grieve on the radio was embarrassing – for him and the Conservative Party. That someone of such low rank should attack the recently-resigned foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, and in such a public way, was both petty and puerile. Grieve threatening to resign gives us all hope and puts wind in Johnson’s sails. Perhaps Grieve can be joined by Anna … Continue reading The King Wanted to Fish

Celebrating Abortion is Repellent

CSM EDITORIAL The sight of pro-abortion activists partying after winning the referendum in Ireland on Saturday somewhat jars. Apparently, according to The Guardian, pro-abortion Irish emigrant activists in Australia were “in tears” and jubilant at the result. Amnesty International hailing the result as a “momentous win for women’s rights” that “marks the beginning of a new Ireland” is just about passable. Whether it is the right … Continue reading Celebrating Abortion is Repellent

Labour Calls Farmers Irrelevant

BY CSM EDITORIAL On June 13th Emma Bean wrote a piece on LabourList (the equivalent of Conservative Home) suggesting that the Labour Party should focus its efforts on Scotland, on Jewish Britain and on the Countryside, where it performed weakly at the General Election on the 8th. Let us put Ruth Davidson and Labour Antisemitism aside for one moment. Regards the Countryside, this is what … Continue reading Labour Calls Farmers Irrelevant

A Shout Out For Britain’s Rural Poor

CSM EDITORIAL A quick scan of Britain’s countryside using Google Earth reveals these rural twilight zones. Where subsisting folk live in caravans or dilapidated homes literally in the middle of nowhere. Down unpassable lanes or hidden off main roads where even the postman daren’t venture past a battered postal collection box barely attached to some post or tree. You may pass these locations as a … Continue reading A Shout Out For Britain’s Rural Poor

Lest We Forget

EDITORIAL Country Squire Magazine stands in silence today at 11 in the morning to remember. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany … Continue reading Lest We Forget

Countryside Access – The Country Trust

EDITORIAL The Forgotten Countryside is not a meme created by those who inhabit Britain’s countryside to hit the Government and other politicians with. It is a genuine complaint. Far too often over the years we have been saddled with bureaucrats who rarely set foot in the countryside, city-dwelling journalists who cast aspersions on countryside dwellers, effortlessly calling them yokels, bumpkins and grockles, and a BBC … Continue reading Countryside Access – The Country Trust
