Lame Duck Sturgeon Should Go

BY JOHN ISMAEL Why has Nicola Sturgeon not resigned as leader of the SNP? The SNP lost 476,867 voters compared to 2015 on June 8th – 33%. One in three of its voters! That’s nearly twice as many voters as the Scottish Tories lost when they were wiped out in Scotland in 1997 when John Major duly resigned. The SNP mantra over the last few … Continue reading Lame Duck Sturgeon Should Go

Don’t Look Back in Anger

BY MANDY BALDWIN So, the irons have been pulled out of the fire and we didn’t have to face the terrifying prospect of Catweazle shuffling resentfully into the presence of our beloved Queen (or ‘Comrade Windsor’, as he no-doubt refers to her in his wildest dreams) to be given permission to surrender us to whatever poisons lurk in the mud. After a sleepless night watching … Continue reading Don’t Look Back in Anger

Losing Labour’s Extremists Emboldened

BY SAM WHITE It’s easy to distinguish the many decent Labour supporters out there—they’re the ones who are alarmed by the rise of Jeremy Corbyn. The ones who are as disturbed as anyone by the party leadership’s links to the IRA, Hamas, and Hezbollah. Who don’t want a leader that always sides with Britain’s opponents in times of conflict. A leader that voted against preventing … Continue reading Losing Labour’s Extremists Emboldened

Supporting Corbyn is Immoral

BY GARETH JOSEPH I’m a member of the Conservative & Unionist Party. I’d like you to imagine a situation where my party leadership election were to be overwhelmed by hard-right activists. A new leader is elected who had spent almost 40 years supporting Loyalist terror groups in Northern Ireland, despite the close alliance my party has with non-violent Unionists. This man spent his political life … Continue reading Supporting Corbyn is Immoral

Political Betting at William Hill is Always a Challenge

The Tory Manifesto: What’s in it for the Countryside?

BY BEN EAGLE They say that politics today is utterly unpredictable. However, unless I am very much mistaken, it’s looking increasingly likely that President May with her ‘hard’ Brexit Tory henchmen will be returned to Downing Street next month with quite a hefty majority of yes men and women on the green benches in the Commons, willing to pass Mrs May’s every wish. There will … Continue reading The Tory Manifesto: What’s in it for the Countryside?

Ben Bradshaw: The New Paul Nuttall?

BY ALEXIA JAMES UKIP’s leader Paul Nuttall has something of a reputation for fibbing. His more notorious fibs include losing close friends in the Hillsborough tragedy, having a PhD and playing football for Tranmere Rovers. Nuttall has now either apologised for those false claims or blamed them on others. There’s nothing that the British public detests more than a deceitful politician and social media has … Continue reading Ben Bradshaw: The New Paul Nuttall?

Tory Voters No Longer Shy

CSM EDITORIAL In 2015, polls just before the General Election were pointing to another hung parliament. There was a fear on the morning of the 7th of May that Ed Miliband might be able to somehow form a dreadful coalition government with Nicola Sturgeon. Slightly better, a Clegg-Cameron pact seemed a possibility also – a Tory majority seemed so distant that Lord Ashdown threatened to … Continue reading Tory Voters No Longer Shy

The Mr Fishfinger Interview

BY JON ALEXANDER “He didn’t sound like a Fishfinger” was the message I sent to my friend on Facebook.  Having just finished a telephone interview with Westmorland and Lonsdale’s newest Parliamentary Candidate – Mr Fishfinger – that was all I could think to say.  He’d been ever so kind to give Country Squire Magazine this exclusive opportunity, so I did not hesitate in dropping him … Continue reading The Mr Fishfinger Interview

Corbyn: Credit Where Credit’s Due

BY BEN EAGLE For anyone who reads my blog it’s probably clear that I’m not overly happy with the direction our country has been going in recent years. The drive to ‘let the market decide’ has, I believe, gone too far and we have forgotten the benefits that collective support can bring, instead opting for some sort of inward-focused, individualistic journey through life. Don’t get … Continue reading Corbyn: Credit Where Credit’s Due
