Sabs Abusing Charity Status

CSM EDITORIAL It’s bad enough having fibbing journalists like Carole Cadwalladr – the word journalist used in the loosest sense of course – crowdfunding their court costs and damages bill from gullible supporters.

But having criminals running … Continue reading Sabs Abusing Charity Status

Packham Tests New BBC Boss

Antis Crowdfunding Court Fines

BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ Last week’s article caused quite a stir. However, anti-hunt saboteurs either faking evidence or making false claims is nothing new.

Corrupt Welsh Assembly Needs Closing

BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ Animal rights groups still remain very much active on the political scene – cheating, lying, funding fake science, and getting like-minded politicians to do their bidding.

Please, Back to Basics

BY PAUL NEWALL The memes about PC police are many and varied. The British police services have been jumping through hoops for a couple of decades to reinvent themselves as inclusive – embracing diversity.

Woke Police are Pathetic

BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ Far left-wing extremists and their contrived agendas appear to be one continuous, long-flowing and toxic river of hypocrisy. On the day extremists were observing social distancing rules by playing dead in the road outside the home of Dominic Cummings, in protest at his minor misdemeanour over Covid-19 rules to protect his children, another bunch of left-wing extremists were fighting … Continue reading Woke Police are Pathetic

Packham’s Paper Tigers

BY NIGEL BEAN Without a doubt these are very stressful worrying times for the vast majority of people in the U.K. I think it’s a safe bet to say everyone has been affected in some way either mentally or financially by this virus.

Policing Pronouns

BY FRANK HAVILAND As some of our more myopic MPs will tell you, there’s never a copper around when you need one. They must be looking in the wrong places. Sadiq Khan tweets a good police cut, but always keeps half a dozen burly officers stashed under his mattress, ready to accompany him on walkabout around London. Never forget: ‘diversity is our strength’, except when … Continue reading Policing Pronouns
