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
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN “Dad, who did you vote for in the 2019 General Election?” “I voted Labour that year.” “For Mr Corbyn?” “Yes.” “But we learnt at school, Dad, that Jeremy Corbyn was an Anti-Semite and he almost single-handedly ruined the Labour Party.” “Well, there was some talk of that at the time, son. But it was in vogue back then amongst my generation to … Continue reading Toast?
BY PAUL NEWALL Why is it that when faced with certain failure politicians these days scream “Russia”? The Democrats in the US tried and failed to oust Trump with their Russian collusion antics and now losers like Dominic Grieve are forced to pull the Russian collusion card over here. Recent tall tales in obtuse publications about the owner of the Evening Standard, Evgeny Lebedev, being … Continue reading It’s the Russians!
BY JAMIE FOSTER There is a special kind of hypocrisy practised by Marxists which is both commonplace and shocking. Take Corbyn’s son, Sebastian. He has a two bedroom East London apartment that cost him £162,500. It is ex Housing Association stock in a luxury block where other flats are going for £650,000. He rents his flat out on Airbnb. This is despite the Labour leadership … Continue reading Socialist Hypocrisy & Nepotism
CSM EDITORIAL Seumas Milne would have slept badly last night. All that the rabble comprising the Labour front bench needed to do was sit back and watch the Tories squabble as the issue of Brexit turned them into rabid dogs. Either Theresa May would fall after Christmas when her deal finally came to a parliamentary vote. Or May would bring on a no deal which … Continue reading Liar
BY DAVID EYLES Every now and then, Twitter throws up some interesting stuff on my timeline. A few days ago, the image below was tweeted by an enthusiastic member of the Labour Party: Initially, I glanced at it and passed on. However, about a day later, memory of the image came back to me and so I returned to it. The photograph is of the … Continue reading Far Side of the Vistula
BY JAMIE FOSTER Hard left students planning protests should bear in mind the law of unintended consequences. That group of nine students who demonstrated at the Churchill themed Blighty UK cafe in Finsbury Park, North London appear to have brought a great deal of useful publicity to the cafe. It has shot up the Trip Advisor rankings and is now number 17 out of 1,180 … Continue reading Balaclava Marketing
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Back in 2006 when the Islamist cleric Omar Bakri held evening chats with his Britain-based acolytes on Pal Talk from London, the conversations were often impossible not to chuckle at. Hours would be spent discussing “sins” like masturbation and ankle revealing. It was a sin to lie on your back and cross your feet, having photos on the wall of your home … Continue reading Join the Red Dots
BY JAMIE FOSTER Anyone joining Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party may be excused for being a little confused about the rules that may lead to them being asked to leave a job or the party itself. Recent events do nothing to clarify the position. Lord Mendelsohn, for example, has just been asked to leave his front bench position as a result of having attended the President’s … Continue reading Labour’s Moral Relativism
BY MANDY BALDWIN Nobody should be surprised at the reaction of Jeremy Corbyn to the announcement that Sally Jones, aka ‘The White Widow’, has been killed in a CIA drone strike. As ever, Corbyn is unable to wholeheartedly condemn terrorists, or terrorism. He seems dimly aware that by not doing so he offends people who he may have to impress in order to gain power, … Continue reading The Corbyn Jones Affinity?
BY SAM WHITE The Labour Party Conference 2017, taking place in Brighton, has been a horror show from start to finish. Here’s how chilling, off-the-rails, and utterly devoid of self-awareness the Corbyn freak-out has become. It’s reported that at a fringe meeting called Free Speech on Israel, there were calls for two Jewish organisations, the Jewish Labour Movement, and Labour Friends of Israel, to be … Continue reading Car Crash Labour 2017
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I read with stupefaction last week that a new organisation is being launched by a group of Corbyn’s Labour MPs – called Catholics for Labour. Some fellow called Mike Kane, who is apparently the shadow schools minister and an MP, will be the organiser of the group which will be formally established at Labour’s party conference later this month. So, why the … Continue reading Was Jesus a Tory?
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN As Guido pointed out yesterday morning, John McDonnell yesterday claimed he didn’t know that hammer and sickle and pro-Assad flags were flying above his head as he addressed a May Day rally – despite standing just yards away from them. McDonnell was asked if he knew the flags were in his vicinity as he spoke: “No, of course I didn’t know” he told … Continue reading Labour Red Flagged
BY JIM BROWNE When you reach my ripe old age, Friday nights are not what they used to be. Friday nights are reduced to babysitting the grandchildren or a game of Gin Rummy with the Mrs. Occasionally I escape and potter down to the White Hart for a couple but Friday is also shopping day and I’ve already had a drink (I sneak one in … Continue reading Audience Fail on Any Questions
