The Flood

25th November 2018 6

Let us open our borders to those ‘who will contribute’. Let us welcome ‘the brightest and the best’. Let us open our doors to ‘the best talent from across the world’. We need an immigration system that meets ‘the needs of our economy’. This is the true meaning of Brexit. No longer will we discriminate against non-EU citizens who might … [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]

The Meaning of Honour and why Britain has lost its own.

13th November 2018 4

Poland celebrated its 100th Anniversary of independence this Sunday. A frightening picture is depicted.  One of a divided Polish society in an unhappy country, with claims that many citizens have rejected liberalism and democracy in light of a growing nationalist sentiment. A conveniently worrying image for those discrediting a democratically elected government running their country. I should know, I was one … [Read on]

1914 – 1918: The war to start all wars up again.

10th November 2018 17

The nation’s youngsters have dutifully and thoroughly gobbled up all the propaganda fed to them by their teachers and by the scriptwriters and presenters of the many programmes made to mark the centenary of the ending of the First World War. It was chilling to hear a little girl of about eight expertly regurgitate the cliché “A lost generation.” Then … [Read on]

Our Island Story

6th November 2018 20

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]

European Court of Human Rights declares the truth to be a crime

4th November 2018 6

I recently lost enthusiasm for Brexit. Many are now equivocating; cold feet about leaving the club, worries that any deal we get will be poor, or make no real difference. My wavering began with the hideous death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi who was butchered on the orders of a Saudi prince who didn’t like his writing. A tyrannical ruler hasn’t … [Read on]

Are there permissible limits to freedom of expression ?

4th November 2018 4

European institutions contain traitors and enemies of our historic jurisprudence and of our traditional way of life over the centuries. For example, at the end of October 2018 the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled that “Defaming the Prophet Mohammed goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate and could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious … [Read on]

And the word was made drivel…

27th October 2018 14

One of the church’s foundation texts is “And the Word was made flesh” (John 1:14). It refers of course to the Incarnation of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Words have long been the speciality of English Christian writers from Miles Coverdale and Thomas Cranmer to G.K. Chesterton and T.S. Eliot. But something called the Church of England Media Centre has just … [Read on]
