Karen Harradine: The most persecuted people in the world? Christians
The West has become a narcissistic ego-driven society with a ‘look at me, me, me’ victim mentality which permeates every part of our society. After successfully installing ridiculous trigger warnings at our universities, post-Liberals, in a twisted homage to the practices of Isis and the Taliban, are now tearing down statues of those deemed too […]
Karen Harradine: While the Left sneer, the magnificent people of Republican Texas show the true meaning of humanity

The male character of Starbuck was recast as the indomitable Kara Thrace, played by […]

After years of being constrained by Barack Obama, the US is now planning to reassert itself onto the world stage. Donald Trump’s Warsaw speech this week is a signal that he has recognised the current realignment of global powers and geopolitics. His sudden support for NATO is a reminder to Putin that the West still […]
