Is Brexit worth disturbing Lord Rothermere’s supper ?

3rd October 2018 3

Today’s Mail headline savaging Boris Johnson for publicly saying what most Conservatives believe about Brexit is more proof that Brexit has lost one of its most formidable proponents. The appointment of arch-liberal and Remainer Geordie Grieg as Mail editor last month (apparently because Lady Rothermere was tired of being abused over Brexit at dinner parties) was always expected to produce … [Read on]

St Joan of Brussels

22nd September 2018 4

Mrs May’s Chequers plan was comprehensively rejected by the EU at Salzburg yesterday evening. They might as well have soaked an effigy of Mrs May in petrol, thrown it on the fire and danced around as it burned, their grotesque cackles and screams piercing the night air. But it seems that Mrs May still has not got the message. Like … [Read on]

The Vicar’s Daughter’s Betrayal.

11th July 2018 4

There is no doubt that Mrs May is delivering Brexit – on a plate, skewered, disembowelled and garnished with fig leaves, with the promise of more extractions to come. The resignations of Davis and Johnson have predictably provoked a media frenzy with fevered talk of turmoil, implosion and a leadership crisis. The 1922 Committee of backbenchers was, we were told, … [Read on]

Brexit; Mrs May’s Vichy England

12th June 2018 2

Responding to Boris Johnson’s leaked remarks that the UK’s attitude to the Brexit negotiations was gutless, Mrs May, speaking at the G7 summit in Canada, insisted that she also has ‘strong views on Brexit’. ‘That’s why’, she went on, ‘I’m getting on with delivering Brexit’. At the forthcoming summit, she will be ‘pressing’ on our future relationship with the EU. … [Read on]

Remigration anybody?

30th May 2018 20

Saturday’s Daily Mail contained a special report by Paul Bracchi detailing the activities of a dangerous and sinister new extremist group. Members of the group are typically young, white, middle class, well-educated, well-dressed and well-mannered. They don’t go on marches, shout abuse or espouse violence, preferring instead to engage in ‘study circles’. They are the members of Generation Identity (GI … [Read on]

Oxbridge – Last Bastion of White Privilege

26th May 2018 2

Labour MP David Lammy is ‘shocked’ that Oxbridge students are disproportionately white and middle-class with professional parents from the higher social income groups living in London, south-east England and the home counties. That whites are twice as likely to get in as blacks is clear evidence of ‘white, middle class, southern privilege’, ‘social apartheid’, ‘regional bias’, ‘serious inequalities’ and so … [Read on]

Putin: Russia’s Capo di tutti Capi

7th April 2018 25

When I first read that Putin was worth £20 billion, I thought it must be a misprint. Admittedly, £20 million would be on the low side for a Russian dictator, and so £200 million or even £2 billion (property is expensive these days) would seem fitting. But the shameless greed and depravity that would enable someone, by sheer virtue of … [Read on]

Trump: The Equaliser

4th April 2018 9

President Trump’s proposed tariffs have attracted almost universal criticism, both in Europe and America, from commentators of all political persuasions and from economists. The spectre of protectionism, the retreat behind tariff walls, and the demise of international free trade looms large and threatens the prosperity of all countries, America included and perhaps America most of all. Such is the stupidity, … [Read on]
