The Met crawls up the backside of the left

1st June 2020 13

On Saturday, a small number of harmless (if somewhat eccentric) protesters gathered at Speakers’ Corner. Under the Coronavirus Act and Guidelines demonstrations are not essential activities and are thus banned, so even at this symbolic site of British liberties, you cannot protest against lockdown, because of lockdown. One of us went to Hyde Park and observed the overzealous policing. Various … [Read on]

The Virus of Modern Feminism

15th March 2020 10

Modern feminism has so successfully captured the mainstream media that notions such as ‘toxic masculinity’, ‘white male privilege’ and ‘the patriarchy’ are constantly parroted on page or screen. Grievance tracts by the likes of Carole Criado Perez are heavily promoted. But most of this literature is for middle-class consumption. While women in highly-paid city jobs are encouraged to be pushy, … [Read on]

Out into the electoral wilderness: Labour pens a fresh suicide note

26th February 2020 6

In perhaps the most embarrassing display of virtue-signalling ever seen in the Palace of Westminster, five newly-elected Labour MPs waved transgender flags, made with marker pens on sheets of A4 lifted from the printer tray. Posting the video on Twitter, this woke quintet probably expected accolades, but apart from a few gender-fluidity fanatics like Owen Jones, the reaction was scathing. … [Read on]

Gaily across the zebra crossing

12th February 2020 20

At last, gay people can cross the road! It took a long time, but a more tolerant and diverse society has embraced LGBT pedestrians, with the help of progressive local authorities. Rainbow crossings are being installed throughout our cities. At Herne Hill in south London, for example, the local community is delighted by this latest investment by Lambeth Council. Some … [Read on]

Oh I do like to migrate to be beside the seaside

2nd January 2020 7

Oh, how the people took their revenge. Among the many MPs booted out at the recent general election was Stephen Lloyd, whose seat the Tories regained from the Lib Dems. Two years previously, Eastbourne was one of several losses for Theresa May’s mismanaged administration. Having alternated between orange and blue since the IRA assassination of Ian Gow, this Sussex town … [Read on]

Brexit is not leaving

5th December 2019 8

This Thursday Boris expects you to give him the parliamentary majority he needs to GET BREXIT DONE.  Of course, we all know that his ‘oven-ready’ deal is merely a reheat of Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement, which Boris had denounced as a dog’s breakfast. There is so much wrong with this treaty, but one of my favourite clauses is that a … [Read on]

Somewhere over the LGBT rainbow……

20th November 2019 17

The editors of the British Dental Journal should watch their back after publishing a letter by S Worthington, who rather dissents from the progressive agenda: – ‘Sir, I have been asked to consider wearing a rainbow lanyard at work to send a clear message of support to the LGBT+ community…I became concerned about the potential distress to other patient groups … [Read on]

UKIP: The Mummy Returns

16th November 2019 15

Bognor Regis is hardly a key battleground in the coming General Election. It’s a safe Tory seat, where the incumbent took 59% of the vote in 2017. Traditional folk live here, unlike the trendy liberals of nearby Brighton (otherwise known as London-by-Sea). However, being of Remain disposition in a Leave community, MP Nick Gibb is not to everyone’s satisfaction.  How … [Read on]
