Dystopia Derangement Syndrome

BY GARY MCGHEE There is currently an unfortunate malady afflicting British Left-Wing group-thinkers (I use the word ’think’ advisedly.) It runs thus: The Tories won a thumping majority at the General Election because the majority of We ordinary Brits are brainwashed by a right-wing media and are increasingly racist, homophobic, misogynistic, transphobic, hate Europe, are nationalistic and fascistic and prone to the overt influence of … Continue reading Dystopia Derangement Syndrome

Cowardly Cancel Culture

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE It would take either a fool or a fascist to witness the growing casualties of cancel culture and still deny its existence. But as I will go on to describe, there are deniers out there quite capable of displaying both these disorders in equal measure. Then there are those who recognise it but will nonetheless tacitly agree that the censored ‘had it … Continue reading Cowardly Cancel Culture

Long Live the Traitors

BY SAM WHITE The right looks for converts, the left for traitors. So runs the famous saying and it’s true, but feels incomplete. The modern left sniffs around obsessively for racists, homophobes, pronoun-sceptics, Islam-doubters, and any other kind of careless bigot you can imagine, with the possible exception of anti-Semites, to whom the hard left is more likely to give a free pass and an … Continue reading Long Live the Traitors

Marine A Must Walk

BY JIM BROWNE MARINE A, Alexander Blackman from Taunton, has had his murder conviction downgraded to manslaughter. Blackman shot an injured Taliban fighter in Afghanistan and had his murder conviction reduced to manslaughter yesterday by five judges at the Court Martial Appeal Court in London. They heard argument on his behalf that fresh psychiatric evidence would have provided him with a diminished responsibility defence. He … Continue reading Marine A Must Walk

Eschewing Clarity

BY SAM WHITE Stumble accidentally into a social justice dominated forum and you’ll find yourself dizzied by various barked phrases which don’t mean anything. That is, you’ll recognise the words, but their meanings will be hollowed out and corrupted. This is because the activist left has a habit of twisting words to serve its own purpose. There’s a basic disrespect for language, and an unwillingness … Continue reading Eschewing Clarity

Out-wording Left-wing Liberals

BY SAM WHITE There’s an overwhelming groupthink among left-wing liberals right now which pretty much invalidates their being called ‘liberals’ at all. It’s not the jackbooted conformity of the far-right, it’s a rigid intellectual purism, and a supreme sense of cocooned arrogance. It resembles not socialist principle, but rather the hubristic conceit of French aristocrats. When I present a dissenting point of view among left-of-centre, … Continue reading Out-wording Left-wing Liberals

How The Left Tricked You

BY SAM WHITE Opponents of the radical left’s excesses have for a long time warned that over-bearing, often nonsensical levels of fervent political correctness are having a deleterious effect on public discourse. The censoriousness, anti-democracy, and plain nastiness of the regressive left is not only wrong on a moral and a civil level, but is counter-productive to its own aims. When normal disagreement on issues … Continue reading How The Left Tricked You
