Conservatives Must Reclaim Green

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND I like many have made the long and tortuous journey from the Left of politics to the Right. As such, I feel afforded a viewpoint whereby the machinations of organised politics have never really fitted in anywhere along the linear spectrum at any given time. Now, in my mid-fifties, I find myself scratching my head over the notion of just how and … Continue reading Conservatives Must Reclaim Green

Big Tech Too Big

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND “I am not a number, I am a free man!” So began the seminal 60s TV series, The Prisoner. Upon recently revisiting this evermore prescient work by the sorely missed Patrick McGoohan, I was struck by the thought; ‘I wonder what he witnessed?’, as it is chock full of the echoes of future-shock. “Be seeing you” the characters chirpily say to one … Continue reading Big Tech Too Big

Education or Indoctrination?

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND An education in the facts about how we as a species continue to reproduce was once in the realms of Science and Biology. Those days are now quickly being brushed under the educational carpet as the Government succumbs to the LGBTQ lobby and lumps everything under the heading of ‘Health and Relationships’. Now, nobody seriously doubts that a certain amount of lesson … Continue reading Education or Indoctrination?

Parent 1 Parent 2

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh… you know the rest. Roll on to 2019, and – you guessed it – it’s ‘transphobic, cisnormative and exclusionary’. At the very start of Aldous Huxley’s seminal novel of 1931, Brave New World, we get plunged into what must have, at the time, seemed an utterly absurd concept. That of school-children giggling over ‘naughty’ words – something they … Continue reading Parent 1 Parent 2

Face Criminals

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND And so, the modern transnational Left descends even further into absurdity with the adoption of Orwell’s ‘face-crime’. The fact that the look on the face of just one young lad can single-handedly cause a meltdown of such titanic proportions would be risible – if it weren’t for the fact that the reaction to the initial, highly-edited video clip was so uniformly monstrous. … Continue reading Face Criminals

Non Player No Character

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND Twitter has suspended hundreds of accounts after users on pro-Trump Reddit forum r/The_Donald coordinated efforts to set up ‘non-player character’ profiles mocking liberals on the social networking site. The trolling campaign was born out of the characterisation of liberals as automatons incapable of independent thought on areas of Reddit and 4chan. In 24 hours there were more than 30,000 uses of the … Continue reading Non Player No Character

Around the Bend

BY TARQUIN SUTHERLAND So, did you hear about the latest EU Directive? Apparently, some poor chap had an accident on a farm. Yes, farms can be dangerous places and accidents will happen. Don’t worry! The European Union to the rescue! In some no doubt well-appointed office somewhere on the continent, a group of faceless bureaucrats have taken it upon themselves to use this accident as … Continue reading Around the Bend
