BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The Genetic Fallacy is used by those short cutting their way to triumph in debate or – more often these days – defending the indefensible. How does this fallacy work? Regardless of the merits of a proposal or argument, the proposal or argument gets shot down because of whence it heralds. In the eyes of the user of the fallacy, it is … Continue reading The Genetic Fallacy
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Twitter is simultaneously a brilliant and awful invention – brilliance and awfulness coming in equal measure. At election time the nasty Marxists seem to lose their heads, randomly firing their Gatling gun off with insults. They become hot-headed because they simply do not understand how most of the nation sees through them and will never vote along their madcap lines – so … Continue reading Cigar Today, Persistence Tomorrow

But it was in vogue back then amongst my generation to … Continue reading Toast?
CSM EDITORIAL This General Election compared to the last has vast swathes of the public waking up to the nastiness of what used to be the Labour Party. This time around even young voters who were dismissed as Year Zero Corbynites in 2017 are discussing antisemitism and the IRA. This is a massively positive development which will hopefully lead to an enlightened choice on December … Continue reading Stop UK Election Fraud Now
CSM EDITORIAL The best thing about the first debate was the lack of Swinson. Hearing that squawking for an hour would have made the ad breaks desirable. The reality is the debate was too cut up and responses terminated too early by Julie Etchingham (not her fault) for the ITV debate to be deemed a success for either side. The format was ill-thought out and … Continue reading A Staccato First Debate
