Wheels Turn

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

Towards Truly Non-Sexist Language

BY ARTHUR KAUFMAN This article grew out of my being tired of listening to “he … uh … and … uh … she” or “men … uh … and … uh … women” and all the variations emphasising the neutrality of gender.  As a Radio 4 junkie, not a day goes by without hearing a few utterances from a range of voices, especially politicians, who, … Continue reading Towards Truly Non-Sexist Language

In Defence of Offence

BY FRANK HAVILAND If the left had their way, civilisation would be an endless reality show to find the world’s most offended person: X Factor Whingers’ Edition perhaps. Winners could then simply be elected for a term as supreme leader, and employ their virtue to solve society’s ills. Indeed, any aliens unfortunate enough to make it to Earth could well be forgiven for believing that … Continue reading In Defence of Offence

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? How often do you take shopping advice from a crusty SJW or use your hard-earned income to mirror their fashion, eating habits or … Continue reading Time for Business to Swat SJWs

Illiberal Derangement

BY SAM WHITE Hate. Are you a hater? Perhaps a hate preacher of some variety? I’m veritably overflowing with hatred. Perhaps, to some limited extent, I even strive to spread hate. I think I may be in the act of preparing to disseminate hatred right now, by typing these words in the hope that they’ll be read, thereby furthering the corruptive agenda to which I … Continue reading Illiberal Derangement

Hollywood’s Stars are Dimming

BY JON ALEXANDER Earlier this month celebrated actress Meryl Streep gave a “brave” speech to a room full of Democrat supporters at the Golden Globes Award ceremony. And it was a great success if you read Democrat-supporting articles. But in what way was it brave? (Streep was basically meowing to a room full of cats…she wasn’t likely to get much opposition in there now, was she?) In … Continue reading Hollywood’s Stars are Dimming

Sing, Act, Shut Up

BY NICK JOHNS When your child tells you that they’re not off to university but are going to acting school instead, one’s heart drops. You know the chances of them becoming a well-paid Hollywood or television actor are close to zero. Nonetheless, you smile. You love them, after all. Acting or singing as careers are most often voyages to nowhere; full of hope and angst; famine … Continue reading Sing, Act, Shut Up

Celebrity Wisdom is Vital

BY SAM WHITE When faced with a political dilemma my first reaction is always, what would Charlotte Church do? Sometimes she’s busy planning a march or burning copies of the Sun though, and I can’t discover her thoughts. In those circumstances I get help by tuning in to the perspective of every other famous person on the planet. Superstars, has-beens, might-bes, can’t-quites, it doesn’t matter, because they … Continue reading Celebrity Wisdom is Vital
