Alas Soubry & Jones

BY FRANK HAVILAND As they near the end of their primary school careers, most children have learned the crucial life lesson ‘sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.’ Those who have not are rightly treated with a certain degree of exasperation by their teachers. It’s reassuring to note therefore, that the combined output of Westminster over the past 72 … Continue reading Alas Soubry & Jones

Time for Business to Swat SJWs

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It never fails to amaze me. The companies that stop advertising across publications and channels because the SJW Twitter mob – anoraks like Stop Funding Hate – descend upon them on social media. After all, who are their market?

Draped over the … Continue reading Punches, Pronouns & Power

BY BEN PENSANT I’m sure I wasn’t the only Corbynite awoken from their post-Loose Women nap some weeks ago by a flurry of social media alerts informing me something amazing had happened.
