Living in Dread

BY PETER HARRIS British Jews have reached an existential crisis, so what is to be done? Edwin Landau, a Jewish Prussian veteran of the Great War, when contemplating the national boycott of Jewish businesses on 1 April 1933, could not grasp how anti-Semitism could manifest in the twentieth century. For Landau, such behaviour was medieval. Nor could Landau comprehend how quickly the course of events … Continue reading Living in Dread

BY MARK CRUDGINGTON Rt Hon Steve Barclay MP, DEFRA Dear Mr Barclay , I am a master gun maker who has for the last 18 months been communicating with your predecessor concerning the proposed ban of lead in rifle and shotgun ammunition against which I am totally opposed. I have also communicated with DEFRA, the HSE, my MP, The Prime Minister and various organisations. In … Continue reading An Important Letter for Steve Barclay

Yousurf, Matheson & Titillating Footie in Morocco

BY HAMISH GOBSON Humza Yousaf calling Suella Braverman “unfit for public office” seems to me to be a clear case of the pot calling the kettle white. Last Monday’s Herald reported our whiter-than-white First Minister, who thinks it wrong for Scotland to have so many “white” people in senior positions in public life, considers that no wrong was done when his Minister for Net Zero Moroccans, Michael Matheson, … Continue reading Yousurf, Matheson & Titillating Footie in Morocco

The Treacherous Hypocrisy of the Anti-VAWG Charities

BY PETER HARRIS The massacre of the innocents that occurred in Southern Israel on 7 October has, like a flare sent up, exposed nefarious attitudes that otherwise would have remained hidden behind a façade of right-on self-righteousness. The anti-Israel bias of the BBC, the anti-Semitism of many university academics and the rabid jihadism of a number of UK born and immigrant Muslims have been thrown … Continue reading The Treacherous Hypocrisy of the Anti-VAWG Charities

Enough is Enough

BY JOHN MUSGRAVE ‘Enough is enough,’ is a phrase now increasingly heard on the lips of all good men and true. The follow-up phrase: ‘They really ought to do something,’ is overused and self-defeating. The problem here is the word ‘THEY,’ a much-abused pronoun of dubious provenance. When we expect ‘them’ to do something we abrogate responsibility. In the real world ‘they’ don’t exist. Suits … Continue reading Enough is Enough

Anti-Semitic & Islamophobic

BY ALEX STORY The Left is both anti-Semitic and Islamophobic. The first tag is not up for debate. From Marx to Keynes and from Corbyn to the current Labour Party, the antipathy towards Jews is well established. In his little-known pamphlet “On the Jewish Question” written in 1843, Marx, the holy messenger of the Left, tells his followers that the Jew is an egotistical, Mammon … Continue reading Anti-Semitic & Islamophobic

The Return of the King

BY PAUL T HORGAN The return of David Cameron to front-line politics has elicited strong reactions from all areas of the political spectrum. On Sunday it was inconceivable that Cameron would be anything other than a former Prime Minister, travelling the lecture circuit and sitting on the board of numerous organisations while acting as a consultant for others. Elevation to a Knight of the Garter … Continue reading The Return of the King

More Weeblemen Required

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN The Hamas-Israel war has created a febrile atmosphere in Britain, at least on social media. The usual suspects on both sides are there for all to see. On the one side, the extremist Islamists – al–Muhajiroun types marching with Caabu and Hizb ut Tahrir numbnuts supported by weird, anti-Semitic allies like Nick Griffin and those Queer for Palestine wannabe building divers. On … Continue reading More Weeblemen Required

Raptor Agitprop, Wader Persecution

BY BERT BURNETT Dear Editor, Something is fundamentally wrong in ‘conservation’ circles. We have seen huge increases in raptor populations over the last half a century, some species the highest ever recorded. Kites, buzzards, goshawks and sparrowhawks are all on the rise. We have raptor lobbyists claiming eagles are in trouble through persecution when in fact their numbers have apparently risen by approximately 35-40 pair … Continue reading Raptor Agitprop, Wader Persecution

Does Scotland Need More Migrants?

BY EFFIE DEANS The Scottish Government in its latest independence white paper expresses concern that Scotland’s population is aging and the birth rate is declining. It argues that migration is the sole driver of population growth and would like migration to increase. It therefore sets out various new visa schemes that an independent Scotland might adopt, would make it easier for asylum seekers and add … Continue reading Does Scotland Need More Migrants?

Yousaf, Jack & Chinese Emperor Gaozong of Qing

BY HAMISH GOBSON In 1910 the future President of the SNP wrote to a suffragette campaigning for women’s rights—an objective he strongly supported—saying: “Women should not forget that a ‘cause’ is the means whereby a politician is put into the position of being able to plunder the nation.” In 1936, when already President, he told a journalist that “politics is a matter of rich men … Continue reading Yousaf, Jack & Chinese Emperor Gaozong of Qing
