Today, it’s Conservatives who are the real rebels – against woke conformity and the cancel culture

Jul 16, 2020 by

by Darren Grimes, Conservative Home: I’m often emailed by very kind folk who think I am acting bravely. I’ve always questioned this; after all, I am merely offering my opinions. But what they’re getting at is that ordinary conservatives are told their ideas and values are reactionary, prejudiced, sexist or racist, and to stand up against the trend, for the views of the common sense majority, is now considered brave to do. Some might be wondering how on earth we conservatives can possibly be...

The virus has brought the liberal chickens home to roost

Mar 28, 2020 by

by Andrew Cadman, The Conservative Woman: […] liberals and progressives seem to have all the best tunes. They get to build the great utopias, fulfil the feel-good ideals: in their world it is always year zero, that glad confident morning when it is bliss to be alive. Conservatism, especially social conservatism, seems by comparison deadly dull. In our modern world of hitherto unimaginable plenty, it is not surprising that liberalism triumphed: looking at those pictures of those young...

Introducing the Orthodox Conservatives – at a time when our ideas are recovering and reviving

Feb 7, 2020 by

By Tom Colsey and Jake Scott, Conservative Home: […]  These reverberating events placed social conservatives in a curious place that nobody expected them to be – they’re on the brink of relevancy again. The new Conservative voter has little time for supranational rule, gender-free toilets, mass-migration and market deregulation. Yet these two victories are soured by the fact one of the greatest Anglo-thinkers of all time also passed away during this period. A philosopher, as gentle and...
