BY PAUL NEWALL I don’t usually approve of celebs getting involved in politics. Their Rockstar lifestyles are usually incompatible with those of the general public, but they do have an effect on their fans. When politicised stars like Saint Bono or Lilly Allen preach to the crowd they manage to successfully pass on their globalist message to a throng of devotees. The last few months … Continue reading Celebs in Politics?
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE One cannot browse Tory Twitter without noticing a disturbing lack of diversity among its younger members. Predictably, a great deal of them are of the now proscribed ‘male and pale’ variety. Less predictable, though, is how many happen to be avowed homosexuals. This would be unusual for any party, let alone an allegedly conservative one. Strange then that no one has cared … Continue reading Why Are So Many Conservatives Gay?
BY SAM WHITE It’s time to be realistic. Liberalism will soon be dead. There has been a sustained attack on liberal values, from hijacked institutions that were former defenders of such liberal values (such as universities and the BBC), escalating for many years. For those who follow alternative media and the blogosphere, this is, of course, not news. No doubt, if you are reading this, … Continue reading Wheels Turn
BY EFFIE DEANS There is almost no political correctness in Poland. Few statues were vandalised by Black Lives Matter activists in Warsaw, because there are very few black people living there. A few hundred thousand people from neighbouring countries like Ukraine live in Poland, but the largest ethnic/racial minority originally from Vietnam is less than twelve thousand. If you wander around Warsaw, you will find … Continue reading A Great Ally
BY FRANK HAVILAND Like A-level results, the calibre of ‘racist’ has depreciated of late. You used to be guaranteed a minimum of a swastika tattoo and a National Front membership card accompanying the word racist, but now anything goes. Mispronouncing Kamala Harris’s name is racist, as is a day out in the countryside, and / or camping. So if you fancy pitching a tent with … Continue reading Gay Giraffes & VE Day
BY JOHN ISMAEL The organisation has polarised Labour politicians and journalists since its inception. Some have compared it to the Militant tendency within the Labour Party. Whatever one’s thoughts on the organisation’s policies and Life of Brian style governing committees, People’s Momentum used to be relevant. So significant that some Tory activists grew scraggy beards, ditched deodorant, cultivated blackhead farms on their noses and plucked … Continue reading Momentum is Dead
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Whether one is an abolitionist or an advocate of the House of Lords, few would credit the second chamber with being democratic. Few, it seems, but the ever buoyant – at least in spirit – Natalie Bennett who last week took to LBC to claim that the Lords is more democratic than the Commons. Perhaps it would be remiss of me not … Continue reading House of Weirdos
THE CITY GRUMP 24 hours before Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill was fired, Michael Gove gave the annual Ditchley lecture. Much of the first 70% covered the standard political mantra of “the London bubble means the Elite is no longer trusted” so we must base more decision makers in Middlesborough, Merthyr Tydfil and so on. But the final 30% was a no holds barred analysis of what … Continue reading Gove’s Revolutionary Ditchley Lecture
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN A choice between two equivalent options has come to be known as a Morton’s Fork. Under Henry VII, John Morton was made Archbishop of Canterbury in 1486 and then Lord Chancellor a year later. He justified a King’s benevolence by holding that a man living modestly must be saving money and, therefore, could manage to pay for the benevolence, whereas a man … Continue reading False Fork
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN One of the great pleasures during the Great Lockdown of 2020 has been cycling to collect eggs. Such is the nature of lockdown that certain acts that were previously deemed something of a bind are now considered adventures to be relished. The hunter-gatherer attribute has been heightened by this era of pandemic and has brought a certain pride and dignity, especially to … Continue reading Sunnyside
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Watching opportunists using the Coronavirus crisis as a lever with which to implement Communism is simultaneously entertaining and dispiriting: Someone sent me this photo of the @c2c_Rail this morning from Southend to London, who are running a reduced service so everyone’s crammed on the train. This situation is utter madness, the government has to announce a universal basic income and call a … Continue reading Universal Basic Logic
BY EFFIE DEANS I think I saw the Killing Fields (1984) when it came out, but I really don’t remember. I may have seen it on video afterwards. It’s a film about the Cambodian genocide that took place between 1975 and 1979. I don’t remember the details of the film, but I remember the ending. John Lennon’s Imagine plays over the final scenes and the … Continue reading Imagine
