Niall McCrae: Corbyn’s angry young stormtroopers are forged in heartless nurseries

Adulation and glee, as a surge in the youthful Labour vote wins Canterbury and other university-graced seats. The Corbyn cult has certainly gained momentum among the financially challenged younger generation, for the crusty Marxist promises of  change from the debt-ridden drudgery of Tory Britain. This dalliance with socialist ideology could be viewed as a swing […]

Niall McCrae: At least Nicola Sturgeon has caught a cold

Marge Simpson has lost her head. Much of that great yellow bouffant atop the British electoral map has been dyed blue, after a startling performance by Ruth Davidson’s Scottish Conservatives.

Down with these apologists, shrieked the feminists, for using such diversionary tactics. According […]

Niall McCrae: Mass immigration means cultural suicide

For historical research, twenty years ago I visited an exhibition marking the closure of Harperbury Hospital, a former colony for ‘mental defectives’. One board featured a controversy from circa 1970, covered by local newspapers. Families had complained of foreign staff failing to communicate with their sons or daughters because they could hardly speak English. The […]
