‘Islamophobia’ strikes again – national students’ union refuses to condemn Isis

Oct 16, 2014 by

by Douglas Murray, Spectator: In a world often devoid of good news, there has been a fine development on the farthest-flung shores of insanity. The British National Union of Students aspires to represent students, though traditionally tends only to represent those students who are politically ambitious and possess left wing views. In any case, its latest idiocy is that it has tied itself in knots over the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – Isis. A condemnation of the ebullient Islamic group was...

The Wrong Kind of Christian

Sep 2, 2014 by

Editor’s note:  If Christians are intelligent and nuanced, winsome not shrill and aggessive, middle-of-the-road not too conservative, engaging with culture not condemning and withdrawing from it, using discussion based on reason not argument based on emotion – if we are like this, we will win over the culture, or at least be given respect and  space for ourselves to continue to believe and act as we have always done. Right? It’s worth reading this article carefully, and...

The rotten Borough of Rotherham

Aug 27, 2014 by

By Mark Wallace, Conservative Home: The full report into the mass sexual abuse of children in Rotherham is 153 pages long. It makes horrific and infuriating reading. The authors say that their “conservative estimate” is that 1,400 children were exploited, abducted and raped over a sixteen year period by “large numbers” of men, that the abusers had extensive links with organised crime and with other towns in the region. The scale and depth of the depravity involved is hard to stomach, and still...

Political correctness isn’t for cissies

Aug 15, 2014 by

by Peter Franklin, Conservative Home: Being PC used to be easy-peasy. On the one hand you had the oppressors – i.e. rich white males; while on the other other you had the oppressed – i.e. everyone else. All you had to do was side with the latter against the former and you’d be sorted. But now it’s more complicated. The professionally oppressed are duking it out in a contest of victimhood one-upmanship – not that they approve of dukes or, for that matter, men. This is documented in a remarkable...
