The Dwindling Sect of Rejoin

BY EFFIE DEANS I was sleeping when we left the EU. It is a matter of complete indifference to me if a fifty pence coin turns up in my change marking the event. If something about being European trends on Twitter I feel slightly amused that some people might think that such things matter. Symbolism doesn’t matter. Reality matters. It’s already clear that nothing bad … Continue reading The Dwindling Sect of Rejoin

In the Name of God, Go!

CSM EDITORIAL So the soon-to-be-retired inebriate Jean-Claude Juncker has now declared the Brexit process “a waste of time, and a waste of energy.” That’s awfully rich. This after three years of entrenched EU intransigence and obstructionism, insisting on a punitive withdrawal agreement intended to make the UK an example lest any other state consider throwing off the yoke of subjugation. After three years of pervasive … Continue reading In the Name of God, Go!

Expect a Boris Bounce

CSM EDITORIAL The Labour Conference was weak fare. A party split by Brexit, feuds between Trotskyites and Blairites and a leader who has been reduced to changing his spectacles every couple of weeks just in case they give him a new look which some might mistake as Prime Ministerial. Every now and again the electable facade slipped – nationalising cutting-edge drug companies (pharmaceuticals are one … Continue reading Expect a Boris Bounce

2024

BY MYSTIC PEG I had a vision last night. I have not had such a clear vision about British politics since my dream about the shell-suited devil. Often my visions come to me in metaphors or riddles but last night’s vision was different in that it came to me in tweets from 2024. Such specificity is rare. I awoke from my vision happy that Britain’s … Continue reading 2024

Nationalism is the New Democracy

CSM EDITORIAL Jean Claude Juncker, in an interview with CNN, slammed those he described as ‘stupid nationalists in love with their own countries’ in the run up to the European elections. It is hugely ironic that one of the men responsible for the anti-democratic European Union should be attacking those who take issue with the way the EU is run in this way. What is … Continue reading Nationalism is the New Democracy

Animal Co-Operative

Robert Adam’s ‘Animal Co-operative’ is the story of the EEC and the EU, up to recent times, told in the allegorical style of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. You can purchase it here. Country Squire Magazine’s Alexia James interviews Robert.   AJ: What drove you to write the book? RA: Ever since reading Animal Farm in English class at school (along with many millions of others over … Continue reading Animal Co-Operative

Verhofstadt’s Hellish Vision

CSM EDITORIAL Guy Verhofstadt is currently running to take over as EU Commissioner from Jean Claude Juncker when he retires in November. He let the cat out of the bag by saying that the EU needs to get rid of the unanimity principle and remove the veto that member states currently have in order to make rules about things like migration. He thinks that they … Continue reading Verhofstadt’s Hellish Vision
