BY IAN MITCHELL The controversy over the statue of Cecil Rhodes in Oriel College, Oxford, suggests that the modern world is opposed to imperialism. I believe the opposite is the case. It shows that Oxford dons are at least as imperialistic as Rhodes ever was, though in a more sly and dishonest way. In fact, the most dangerous imperialism that has descended on the civilised … Continue reading The Imperialism of Anti-Imperialists
BY JON ALEXANDER It finally happened, after months of anticipation, GB News finally arrived to take on the media heavyweights like the BBC and Sky News. Launching with a welcome message from its chairman, Andrew Neil, promising to protect free speech and challenge the conventional Westminster mindset with the tag line “if it matters to you, it matters to us” but niftily followed further on … Continue reading GB News
BY EFFIE DEANS An organisation called The Social Justice and Fairness Commission recently published a report dated March 2021. We didn’t see it in March however, but rather it was only revealed after the Scottish Parliament Election. Of course, the organisation is another of the SNP’s front organisations. The authors of the report are SNP politicians and supporters. Like every other SNP report, it concludes that independence kills … Continue reading Brits, Move to Scotland
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN There are people who are always wrong – Carole Cadwalladr, Owen Jones, Peter Jukes, Polly Toynbee, Marina Hyde – and they serve a useful purpose in life in that you can set truth by their polar opposite. The dangerous people are the ones who are right only some of the time – the “almost right” – who lull you into trusting them … Continue reading Blair Forever Almost Right
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The countryside versus the town is a phony battle that has been conjured repeatedly over the ages, mostly as an excuse by opportunist charlatans and self-preservers who generally had a foot in both. Nonetheless, there is something increasingly perverse about those who rarely leave the perimeter of the M25 casting judgement on those distant swathes of green where their crops are grown, … Continue reading The New Countryside Roar
Political betting might seem like a novelty, but it actually has a long history dating back to 18th-century Britain. Back then, it was a way to make the election process more inclusive for the people and their communities. Now, it is part of the sports betting category, which has experienced tremendous growth due to technological developments, while also being a leisure activity and possibly a … Continue reading A Short Insight into Brits and Political Betting
BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Haunting the Prime Minister throughout the corona crisis have been the ghosts of crises past: Blair, Brown and May. Voices one would only risk hearing at after dinner speeches were it not for a media all too ready to resurrect them. We could add Major to this list, but it seems he is watching the cricket more nowadays – his carping from … Continue reading Backseat Drivers
Will Joe Biden make America great again? President-elect, Joe Biden, has his work cut off for him like many previous presidents of the greatest country in the world before him. What makes his tenure distinct is the fact of a pandemic that has ravaged through the country, killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, and has in equal measure, left many Americans poorer and unemployed. This … Continue reading Biden or Bite Them?
BY FRANK HAVILAND The calibre of political discourse ain’t what it used to be. In the days of Churchill, I suspect you could have followed him round with a Dictaphone and not managed to find a dull quote. Personally I rather like ‘The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter’. Maggie had her moments too. When asked by Terry Wogan … Continue reading 10 Point Plan for Britain

BY EFFIE DEANS In most European countries there is only a moderate amount of coverage of American politics and American elections. They are interested of course in who wins, but they are not that interested. They don’t follow all the day to day details of American political life like we do in Britain. This is partly because they don’t speak English, but it’s also because … Continue reading Biden – Lame & Late
BY NIGEL BEAN & PAUL READ The pages below are taken from an unpublished book, Persecution of the British Circus, on the notorious circus set-up perpetrated by the animal rights group Animal Defenders International (ADI) in the late nineties. Why unpublished? Because the publishers were terrified of reprisals from animal rights groups and only agreed to go to print if their name was omitted from … Continue reading Spiked Witness
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
