Left Running Out of Victims?

BY FRANK HAVILAND Back in the 90’s it was still considered racy to show a lesbian kiss pre-watershed. Twenty years on and homosexuality is so mainstream, your best chance of being controversial is to do the unthinkable and put a straight, white couple on. In fact, if the latest Disney princess isn’t a pink-haired, non-binary, transgender activist for Antifa, what is the point? Gender it … Continue reading Left Running Out of Victims?

The Abuse of Identification

BY FRANK HAVILAND Child abuse is nothing new, though the market has certainly diversified in modern times. In the good old days, most families had an uncle whose hugs were overly-affectionate, just as many a parish vicar was renowned for their ‘hands-on’ approach to pastoral care.  But it wasn’t all bad – Uncle George’s Christmas and birthday gifts were always generous, and at least mum … Continue reading The Abuse of Identification

In Defence of Offence

BY FRANK HAVILAND If the left had their way, civilisation would be an endless reality show to find the world’s most offended person: X Factor Whingers’ Edition perhaps. Winners could then simply be elected for a term as supreme leader, and employ their virtue to solve society’s ills. Indeed, any aliens unfortunate enough to make it to Earth could well be forgiven for believing that … Continue reading In Defence of Offence

Forced Diversity

BY FRANK HAVILAND ‘Diversity is our strength’ as we all know, but unfortunately for Generation X, our formative years were spent in the absence of such wisdom. Indeed, I often attribute the cataclysmic failures of my life to my diversity-barren childhood; a nightmare from which only the bravest millennials would have survived. My brothers and I were ritually force-fed egg and chips every Saturday. How … Continue reading Forced Diversity

Reluctantly Supporting Rowling

BY FRANK HAVILAND Revenge is a dish best-served cold, so they say, and in these days of unorthodox diets there is something particularly piquant about watching from the wings as your enemies self-cannibalise. J K Rowling is the latest lefty loon ensnared in a trap of her own design, frantically virtue-signalling as the progressive sharks feast upon her. Whatever her undoubted gifts as a writer … Continue reading Reluctantly Supporting Rowling

Believe in Something

BY FRANK HAVILAND Believe in something, even if it’s only your victim status. Genuine sacrifice is the stuff of legend and is therefore reassuringly rare. For the biblical among us, there are the towering figures of Abraham or Christ himself to live up to. For historians, there are titans such as Martin Luther King or Emmeline Pankhurst. If it’s sport you want, you could do … Continue reading Believe in Something

Licence to Offend

BY FRANK HAVILAND ‘The name’s Bond, James Bond’ are among the most iconic cinematic words ever uttered. The moment you hear them, you are instantly transported back to Sean Connery’s first outing as 007 in ‘Dr. No’. No matter how much rebranding he goes through, Bond is inseparable from that image. Even those such as myself who didn’t grow up with Sean, will tell you … Continue reading Licence to Offend
