BY FRANK HAVILAND Despite hogging the headlines for the past week, ITV’s dismissal of Alastair Stewart is a non-story. That Stewart was sacked for racism – sorry, an ‘error of judgement’ – hardly needs saying. We’ve been here before with tedious regularity. Stewart is merely the latest in a long line of white men, caught in possession of an unauthorised opinion. For Danny Baker it … Continue reading Wacist!
BY FRANK HAVILAND Back in the 90’s it was still considered racy to show a lesbian kiss pre-watershed. Twenty years on and homosexuality is so mainstream, your best chance of being controversial is to do the unthinkable and put a straight, white couple on. In fact, if the latest Disney princess isn’t a pink-haired, non-binary, transgender activist for Antifa, what is the point? Gender it … Continue reading Left Running Out of Victims?
BY PAUL NEWALL I’ve just rewatched a movie called Network, it’s a dark satire from 1976 where a news anchor-man by the name of Howard Beale gets the news that he is being “retired” due to poor ratings and proceeds to announce on live TV that he’ll blow his brains out on live TV the following Tuesday because he’s run out of bullshit to give … Continue reading Gammon Spring Cometh
BY FRANK HAVILAND Most people have the good taste not to know what gender means anymore, but it wasn’t always the case. When I was at primary school 30 years ago, most kids could accurately identify the contents of their pants. On one solitary occasion, a boy famously strayed into the girls’ toilets, and was thereafter accorded the sort of hushed respect usually reserved for … Continue reading War on Y
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
BY INFAMOUST If one chooses to look through the annals of sport – and team sport in particular – it isn’t hard to see the influence that the United Kingdom has had right across the entire world. It appears to be something in which we excel – the creation of sports that is – even if not very often in the playing of sports we, … Continue reading The Slow Death of Fair Play
BY LDH POWELL So, an article by Matt Kilcoyne in The Telegraph came out in favour of ‘Love Island’, decrying the intellectual “snobbery” of quite possibly (and most likely) its own readers, and the “Twitter storm” surrounding this latest hyped-up TV offering. The premise being that ‘Love Island’ contestant applications were higher than that of applications for Oxbridge. What’s that I hear? carefully manicured and … Continue reading Love Islands
BY NICK GREEN The question over whether gammon is a racist term is a simple one to answer. When white people use it against white people, then no – it’s not racist in the slightest. When those of another colour use it against white people then it’s as racist as a white using the N or P word. If there’s any sanity in the legal … Continue reading Jones’ Gammon Mask Slips
BY SAM HOOPER Nobody’s safe, for they care for none. I must admit that I have been waiting for this one. I knew that it was only a matter of time before the social justice censors came for The Mikado, that beloved Gilbert & Sullivan operetta set in a highly fictionalized version of Japan, and here we are. (My other long-standing test for the final capitulation … Continue reading 3 Little SJWs From School
BY SAM WHITE The inherent leftiness of the arts and music scene is relentlessly stifling, the creative industries having become intractably connected with so-called progressive politics. Those in the industry articulate, of course, a belief in artistic freedom, but it’s a false one, as the strict confines of the like-minded collective invisibly demarcate actual artistic practice. There’s a rejection of capitalism, while working in ways … Continue reading Farts & Music
BY SAM WHITE The zealots of Stop Funding Hate and their supporters are utterly convinced they’re doing the right thing, and that should give anyone pause for thought. Carrying out bad acts in the knowledge that they’re bad is worrisome enough. Carrying out bad acts because you sincerely believe yourself to be in alignment with a higher, more virtuous endgame is the first step along … Continue reading List Makers & Matchsticks
BY MANDY BALDWIN I mean it when I say, if I were writing this in pen and ink, it would be blotched with my tears. Mississippi schools have taken Harper Lee’s masterwork, To Kill A Mockingbird, off the schools reading list, as some parents find it ‘disturbing’. What’s really ‘disturbing’ of course, are the implications of suppressing a masterpiece because it offends idiots. To Kill … Continue reading To Silence a Mockingbird
