Letwin Coup Irrelevant

BY FRANK HAVILAND Just days away from the hallowed Brexit date of March 29th and we may be redefining the nation’s future on an hourly basis. As we near the crescendo to the most interminable 3 years’ procrastination, and the worst negotiation since Lady Godiva’s tailor agreed to be paid by the stitch, Great Britain is now in the position where absolutely no one knows … Continue reading Letwin Coup Irrelevant

A Test for the Unholy Alliance

BY FRANK HAVILAND It’s a well-known fact that heavyweight encounters rarely live up to the hype. Promoters are often guilty of allowing things to marinate until both sides are well past their sell-by dates. The long-awaited clash between Islam and gay rights however, may prove to be the exception; provided the rainbow corner comes to fight of course. I always suspected we’d get there with … Continue reading A Test for the Unholy Alliance

From Caliphate to Welfare State

BY FRANK HAVILAND The first duty of government is to protect its citizens. You can map the decline of a nation simply by its inability to uphold the laws founded for such a purpose. Britain is now failing this litmus test with alarming regularity. Westminster is now perfectly willing to ignore its largest ever democratic vote, overlook the carnage on the streets of London lest … Continue reading From Caliphate to Welfare State

BY FRANK HAVILAND With the best will in the world, it’s hard to sympathise with Diane Abbott. For the record, I don’t possess that will. Nevertheless, I did my utmost to read her ‘woe is me’ whinge-fest in the Independent last week with impartiality. It wasn’t easy. The Hackney MP has had her ample plumage ruffled once again, this time by ‘racist’ mistreatment at the … Continue reading The Patron Saint of Victimhood

In Defence of Toxic Masculinity

BY FRANK HAVILAND If you’re the proud owner of a penis you’ll be no stranger to vilification. Male babies who stoically refuse to cry are quite rightly welcomed into the world by a good slap from the head nurse; a salutary life lesson for things to come. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you: men are useless. They can’t iron, can’t ask for directions, can’t cook, … Continue reading In Defence of Toxic Masculinity

Double Standards of the Left

BY FRANK HAVILAND Successful TV shows rarely survive the ratings wars once the lead has quit. Having put in 20 years, and achieving viewing figures of 17.4 million in the process, you can hardly blame Nigel Farage for hanging up his mustard corduroys and deciding to live a little. The demise of Brexit without him has been shocking nonetheless. Trying to market it to a … Continue reading Double Standards of the Left

Alas Soubry & Jones

BY FRANK HAVILAND As they near the end of their primary school careers, most children have learned the crucial life lesson ‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.’ Those who have not are rightly treated with a certain degree of exasperation by their teachers. It’s reassuring to note therefore, that the combined output of Westminster over the past 72 … Continue reading Alas Soubry & Jones
