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

Tory Britain, the Postmodern Version

BY SAM WHITE Tory Britain, you have to love it. It’s kind of a feckless experiment, like grenades-and-rape Sweden, or Justin Trudeau’s identity-free-post-national Canada. Or is it more like France, where they’re fashionably laissez-faire about external borders, but are constructing bulletproof walls around the Eiffel Tower? Or Germany, where mass sex attacks in the street are covered up, but a journalist gets a suspended sentence … Continue reading Tory Britain, the Postmodern Version

Bring on the Drugs Revolution

BY SAM WHITE Islington Council’s widely criticised decision to shut down Fabric nightclub last year marked a low point in jobsworth state interference. The incident was reminiscent of the cat and mouse battles of the 1990s when the Pay Party Unit and the Territorial Support Group, validated by decades of shit stirring from the likes of Mary Whitehouse, attempted to forcibly straitjacket society by disrupting … Continue reading Bring on the Drugs Revolution

The Conservative Cataract

BY SAM WHITE Younger voters want change, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Pushing on and looking to the future is how we get men on the moon, and carry smartphones that can change our photos so we look like cats. And what’s wrong with shaking things up and pissing off stick-in-the-muds anyway? It’s one of the pleasures of Brexit. But in Britain, Corbynism has … Continue reading The Conservative Cataract

Car Crash Labour 2017

BY SAM WHITE The Labour Party Conference 2017, taking place in Brighton, has been a horror show from start to finish. Here’s how chilling, off-the-rails, and utterly devoid of self-awareness the Corbyn freak-out has become. It’s reported that at a fringe meeting called Free Speech on Israel, there were calls for two Jewish organisations, the Jewish Labour Movement, and Labour Friends of Israel, to be … Continue reading Car Crash Labour 2017

Channel 4 Chan

BY SAM WHITE Having fought for years for gay and lesbian rights, having stood up in defiance of the religious right for the liberty to ridicule the church, having rejected thin-skinned theological calls for special treatment, having championed individual liberties and freedom of thought and expression, the progressive left has now decided to give all that up and convert to Islam. Allahu Akbar. Channel 4 … Continue reading Channel 4 Chan

In the Dark Heart of Remain Britain

BY SAM WHITE A pragmatic decision was made by the people of the United Kingdom last year, to jump the listing European Union tanker and make a bid for freedom. Following the referendum, relieved and optimistic voters around Britain have been looking forward to a future which is both global and sovereign. There have manifested though, pockets of the country in which the door has … Continue reading In the Dark Heart of Remain Britain

On the Bus with an SJW & a Neo-Nazi

BY SAM WHITE I was on the bus the other day, and to my surprise a conservatively attired neo-Nazi and a blue-haired social justice warrior got on and sat together in front of me. I was waiting for the sparks to fly, but incredibly, they got on like a house on fire. The conversation was fascinating, so I sneaked out my notebook and started discreetly … Continue reading On the Bus with an SJW & a Neo-Nazi

A Week In Identity Politics

BY SAM WHITE If someone were to ask, “what’s the best way to divide society, make everyone hate each other, and bring the whole thing to a state of collapse from the inside?” I might answer with just two words: “identity politics”. It’s difficult to imagine a more regressive approach to life than that endorsed by this horrible philosophy. As a quick reminder, the ideology … Continue reading A Week In Identity Politics

Demonising Douglas

BY SAM WHITE If you say there’s a problem with de facto blasphemy policing around Islam, in which open criticism of this one particular religion is—to understate enormously—frowned upon, you might be chastised by left-wingers, who will inform you dismissively that no such problem exists. But there’s a characteristic shared by all of these people who insist there’s no issue around criticism of Islam: none … Continue reading Demonising Douglas

Free Speech & Finsbury Park

BY SAM WHITE As news of the barbaric terror attack near Finsbury Park Mosque unfolded this week, the country convulsed. Another slaughter, but this time different. Just as brutal and horrifying as previous attacks, but committed not by a Muslim, but against Muslims. One person killed and ten injured after they left the mosque late at night, ploughed into by an anti-Muslim terrorist in a … Continue reading Free Speech & Finsbury Park

Quilliam Flawed

BY SAM WHITE You may be aware that this week, relations between Tommy Robinson and Maajid Nawaz’s Quilliam Foundation broke down completely. For those not up to date on what happened, here’s a summary. First, there’s Tommy Robinson, former leader of the English Defence League, and outspoken campaigner against Islamic extremism. Robinson is a deeply controversial figure about whom you can find two competing descriptions: … Continue reading Quilliam Flawed
