Where did the Hard Left Go?

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Where most saw a pensioner of unremarkable intellect or image, Corbynites saw a man of almost mystical significance, and if the support for his new project is anything to go by, the significance hasn’t waned. The launch video that sees him wax ineloquently about social justice issues feels like a call back to 90s televangelism; indeed, the website tells us what Corbyn … Continue reading Where did the Hard Left Go?

Render Unto Caesar

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The advantage of church closures this year during lockdowns has been the emergence of Masses and other church services online. “How can virtual services be a positive?” I hear you traditionalists and conservatives chuntering. Well, first up, you can be as rude as you like about a priest’s sermon real-time, without having to put up with the death stares from the blue … Continue reading Render Unto Caesar

Trojan Labour Unelectable

CSM EDITORIAL Fortunately, the next UK General Election is a long way away. It is scheduled to be held on Thursday 2nd May 2024, in line with the Fixed-term Parliaments Act. Nonetheless, presuming Covid restrictions fade by the end of 2022, there are certain predictions that can be made even now. Despite by then 14 years of Tory rule, Labour has little hope of winning … Continue reading Trojan Labour Unelectable

Momentum is Dead

BY JOHN ISMAEL The organisation has polarised Labour politicians and journalists since its inception. Some have compared it to the Militant tendency within the Labour Party. Whatever one’s thoughts on the organisation’s policies and Life of Brian style governing committees, People’s Momentum used to be relevant. So significant that some Tory activists grew scraggy beards, ditched deodorant, cultivated blackhead farms on their noses and plucked … Continue reading Momentum is Dead

Labour’s Property Thieves

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Raise the drawbridge, the Commies are coming for your Castle. Unlike France, Germany and Switzerland, Britain is a nation of homeowners. One may even say home-owning has become a part of British culture – that is, if we are still permitted to hold any semblance of culture which extends beyond the ubiquitous duty of ‘tolerance’. If tolerance is to be all that’s … Continue reading Labour’s Property Thieves

Was Hitler a Socialist? II

BY BEN IRVINE (Following on from PART ONE) For Hitler, racism and nationalism were equivalent: ‘To us state and race are one’, he asserted. In other words, antisemitism was the link between the ‘National’ and the ‘Socialism’ parts of National Socialism. To Hitler, racist nationalism was racist socialism, and vice versa. Alas, this proved to be a powerful electoral combination. In the early 1930s, a majority … Continue reading Was Hitler a Socialist? II

McKinstry’s Mauling

CSM EDITORIAL Excusing corpses and those voters forced to vote by imams for fear of a beheading, if there’s anyone left in Britain still thinking of voting for Corbyn’s Labour Party then they need to read Leo McKinstry’s account of working alongside Jeremy Corbyn for a decade in his Islington North constituency. McKinstry spells out the obvious – that “the Labour Party is in the … Continue reading McKinstry’s Mauling

Poor Little Tiggiwinkles

CSM EDITORIAL Once Brexit is over, what do the so-called Independent Group have in common? How can Anna Soubry, who defended George Osborne’s austerity packages one after the other, sit in a new party – if that is what the TIG becomes – alongside profligate Labour MPs, whose default position is to drain dry the public coffers? Allen and Wollaston are oddballs and how they … Continue reading Poor Little Tiggiwinkles

Where Are the Tory Vandals?

BY JOHN ISMAEL News that Jacob Rees-Mogg’s property was the target of an attack by left-wing extremist vandals appears in The Daily Mail today: “Jacob Rees-Mogg’s home has been attacked by vandals who spray painted his windows and left a dildo on the bonnet of his car. The Conservative MP’s windows were sprayed with the words ‘posh scum’ while ‘****head’ and ‘shut up and die’ … Continue reading Where Are the Tory Vandals?
