Men retreat in the 20-year feminist-led war on masculinity

Feb 10, 2015 by

By Andrew Cadman, The Conservative Woman: “Why does modern Britain hate men?” A question, if memory serves me correctly, first asked by the great Melanie Phillips, formerly of The Daily Mail and now The Times, well over a decade ago.

A toxic, socially Marxist, anti-Christian ideology has possessed Britain’s soul

Feb 8, 2015 by

By Julian Mann, Conservative Woman: The Cambridge Union Society’s Bicentenary Debate yesterday, which according to the invitation was about ‘celebrating 200 years of free speech’, has moved me to some sober reflections about the impact of political correctness over the past thirty years. When I became a life member of the Union in 1984, it would have been possible for the then President to have held a debate about the spiritual, moral and psychological impact of abortion on British society.

Will Ukip get a foot in the door?

Jan 29, 2015 by

By Ed West, Catholic Herald: Nigel Farage’s ‘insurgent’ party is gaining a following among the faithful – much to the consternation of the bishops of England and Wales. […]  Ukip is an “anti-politics” movement, appealing to voters who see the old parties as socially liberal, politically correct and captured by minority interest groups. Major party membership has haemorrhaged and many people no longer believe in the messages coming from Westminster, proclaimed by baby-faced politicians...
