On a Winter’s Afternoon

17th December 2018 14

Last week, there were only two children at Sunday school at my local parish church – one of them was my eight-year-old son, the other a girl of about the same age. They duly reported back to the congregation, got a round of applause for what they had managed to remember of the story of John the Baptist, and then … [Read on]

Mrs May: Brussel’s Colonial Governor

18th November 2018 7

For those of us who participated in the modern-day Peasant’s Revolt (as Rod Liddle so aptly described the Brexit vote in this week’s Spectator), we must have known in our hearts that it was all doomed, that the establishment would never permit us to leave the EU. For a day or two last week, Mrs Day’s grotesque deal having provoked … [Read on]

Our Island Story

6th November 2018 19

I have just begun reading Henrietta Marshall’s Our Island Story to my 8-year-old son. The story begins in the mists of time and mythology, with Neptune giving his beloved son Albion a beautiful island set in a silver sea – an island that the heroic Brutus, prince of Troy, later renames Britannia. We have got as far as the coming … [Read on]

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]
