Plan-it Lib-Lab-Con

Belgium had one of the strictest lockdowns and the world’s highest Covid deaths per million population.

For a country like the UK with pretensions to being a democracy a degree of herd immunity is the only way forward long term.

A vaccine will help a little, just as it does with other strains of coronavirus we term the flu. But as these viruses mutate rapidly and generally in the direction of diminished lethality it is not a ‘magic bullet’.

There is no evidence that lockdowns, or …

A response to the Chancellor’s mini-budget

With all of this climate change we hear about endlessly we should soon be able to grow coconuts in southern England.

If we train the post-millennials to pick them we wouldn’t need to import coconut milk and other similar products from countries such as Thailand, which would help the public finances and gradually over time eliminate the budget deficit.

If we restore the coal industry similar considerations would apply and this would also, in theory, help to speed up the rate of global warming, hence …

What Did You Do In The War?

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

There is no doubt that the world is full of a good many bizarre and unsupportable claims and notions. Trying to pick your way through the quagmire of claims, counter-claims and general nonsense is harder than it has ever been.

The basic problem, of course, is that governments and official sounding organisations have been lying, deceiving and manipulating since the coronavirus first emerged from hiding and yelled `boo’.

All honesty has gone out of the …

THREE PIECES OF GOOD NEWS

Dear Marriage supporter

There have been three encouraging pieces of news lately that I wanted to share with you.

Weddings

First of all of course is the news that weddings are back on in Northern Ireland and Wales, and from 4 July can take place once again in England as well.

This received a lot of media coverage but there is more good news that you may have missed.

RSE

I’m pleased to say the Government has now accepted the reality that due to lockdown schools may …

Did Johnson play too much rugby at Oxford?

These people have no idea what they’re doing: Ex-Supreme Court judge LORD JONATHAN SUMPTION gives a devastating verdict on our political leaders’ handling of the crisis

By LORD JONATHAN SUMPTION FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

PUBLISHED: 02:06, 21 June 2020 | UPDATED: 08:08, 21 June 2020

Does the Government have a policy for coronavirus? Indeed it does. In fact, it has several. One for each month of the year, all mutually inconsistent and none of them properly thought through. Sometimes, governments have to change tack. It shows that …

Let Rhodes stand, though Oriel fall

Oxford University’s cowardly surrender is a wilful vandalism of history, writes DANIEL HANNAN, an Oriel graduate who is tearing up his donations to the college

By DANIEL HANNAN FOR THE DAILY MAIL

PUBLISHED: 22:48, 18 June 2020 | UPDATED: 08:08, 19 June 2020

Yet again, the future of Cecil Rhodes hangs in the balance.

Intimidated by a delirious mob, the governing body of Oriel – his and my Oxford college – voted to remove the statuette of the 19th-century diamond magnate from its niche high above the city’s …

J K ROWLING KNOWS: MALE AND FEMALE IS BIOLOGY, NOT MAGIC

Dear Marriage supporter

Author J K Rowling may be loved by a whole generation of Harry Potter fans and a supporter of many progressive causes, but even she it seems is not safe from the trans thought police. Her crime? To believe that biology is fixed and a man cannot become a woman.

Rowling has been in the sights of the trans inquisition since last December when she tweeted her support for Maya Forstater, a tax specialist …

Step by step the Establishment is betraying the nation

The criminal folly of institutions such as UK banks and universities, not to mention government, local and national, pandering to a craze of deluded white guilt-tripping should be self-evident.

Historical revisionism does not consist solely in the undemocratic governments of countries such as Russia, China and Turkey airbrushing genocide and the violation of human rights from their history. It also consists in the distortion of history by means of a dumbed down narrative of Anglophobic propaganda: a cultural revolution promoted by blackguards instead of red.

The sinister …

Marriage wreckers rubber stamp their charter

PARLIAMENT MAY HAVE JILTED MARRIAGE, BUT WE HAVEN’T

Dear Marriage supporter

I’m very sorry to say that last night MPs approved the Government’s dreadful quickie divorce Bill, completing its parliamentary process.

The Government’s whipping operation did its work. Even the very moderate amendments put forward to limit the impact of the Bill were rejected.

Coalition for Marriage has been one of very few groups to oppose this Bill from the outset. We will continue to highlight the injustice of a law which will give a marriage less security than …

Six out of ten for Hitchens Minor

From the lockdown to the destruction of statues, these febrile weeks show the pillars of our freedom and civilization are rotten. As the Left now controls every lever of power, we face nothing less than regime change

By PETER HITCHENS FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

PUBLISHED: 01:09, 14 June 2020 | UPDATED: 11:12, 14 June 2020

What we now face is regime change. That is why these strange crowds have begun to gather round ancient and forgotten monuments, demanding their removal and destruction.

They do not know what …
