The Death of Christian Britain and The End of Church and State?
“Christian Britain died in 1963”. So wrote the historian Calum Brown. He doesn’t say on what date of what month, exactly but he quotes Philip Larkin’s famous verse as a reference point.

But the real test of political allegiance for me has become the freedom of speech- or rather the threat to it. And the threat to it comes mainly from the political and cultural left. Continue reading “Fascism and the Left.”

“From Eco Lunacy to snotty Social Justice Warriors to the state of his Sex Life, James Delingpole’s World is going to hell in a handcart. Each week James will meet with kindred spirits – and maybe the odd arch enemy – to chew the fat, slaughter some sacred cows, and make everything nice and fluffy in his characteristic snarky, erudite, take-no-prisoners way.”
