An Interview with Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell is a British human rights campaigner, best known for his work with LGBT social movements. How Britain perceives Tatchell has changed drastically throughout the years and it is perhaps fitting that the trajectory of our opinion has been inverse to the public’s view of his nemesis – hero turned villain, the recently departed Robert Mugabe – who Tatchell famously tried to citizen’s arrest.  Once … Continue reading An Interview with Peter Tatchell

University Has Changed, Parents

BY STEPHEN PAX LEONARD Ripples of laughter could be heard from the Senior Common Room where undergraduates dressed in ‘I am a feminist’ hoodies wrestled on the sofas. The LGBTQQIAAP+ dinner had just finished, and the students had retired to the SCR ‘safe-space’ to let off steam and gossip about who they found ‘dangerous’. This was not Oxford. The SCR sherry and newspapers were long … Continue reading University Has Changed, Parents

The Myth of Privilege

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The word “privilege” has been co-opted by the Marxists alongside words which used to be marvellous, like “liberal” and “progressive”. Privilege – once a motive for thankfulness – is now just another weapon in their postmodern arsenal of intersectionality. It’s the favoured baseball bat with which these comrades club their prime targets – white men – around the heads. Especially when white … Continue reading The Myth of Privilege

Cutting Through the Noise

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN There is too much noise. Too much dissembling going on. And there are too many lies by politicians and in the media. Take the example of last night’s Cooper bill which was passed by one vote. The #FBPE crowd were cock-a-hoop. Yet this bill cannot prevent a no deal Brexit. The Cooper bill necessitates our Prime Minister asking the European Council for … Continue reading Cutting Through the Noise

Free Flights to Caracas for Corbynites

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I am getting fed up to the back teeth with the comments of hard-line British leftists about Venezuela, now the country is back in the news as the socialist tyrant Maduro’s days dwindle: What is going on in #Venezuela, why sanctions on the country are responsible for its economic demise and how the left must respond with the call to end such … Continue reading Free Flights to Caracas for Corbynites

The Post Modernist Final Solution

BY DAVID EYLES Most of us are mystified by the current course of events. There seem to be so many contradictions in politics and elsewhere. In fact, many contradictions seem to have become political even when they had nothing to do with politics in the first place. For example, the simple matter of deciding what sex you are has now been subdivided into a myriad … Continue reading The Post Modernist Final Solution

The BBC Must Fall

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The Americans are way ahead of us Brits when it comes to fighting the culture wars. Their films are better quality, their best e-warriors have ditched their bedrooms for studios and content can be found across the board adopting one or another worldview. The Americans even have the #WalkAway movement, which is beginning to really grate with the enemy…. “Once upon a … Continue reading The BBC Must Fall

Nordic Socialism not Venezuelan!

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It was no surprise last week to see the “journalist” Sam Kriss ditched by VICE and then suspended by the Labour Party after claims of sexual harassment. Labour hijacked by Momentum placers seems to attract such charmers. It was diverting to see that Kriss describes himself as an intellectual. Then again, these false promisers of Labour – he purportedly bragged to some … Continue reading Nordic Socialism not Venezuelan!
