SUNDAY COLUMN: Coronvirus and the Media

Anne Marie Waters Sunday October 18th 2020   I’ve been clear in the past in my views on the media.  I believe it to be nothing short of evil, and I do not use that word casually.  To wilfully and knowingly misinform an entire population, stirring up panic, spreading outright lies, and then sitting back…

SUNDAY COLUMN: The Infection of Politics

Anne Marie Waters  Sunday October 4th 2020   It’s been a strange week yet again.  It seems that every week this year has been a strange one, characterised by new and silly rules that few can follow, or a press that parrots the government line without question, or just flat-out nastiness from the usual suspects. …

Two Tier Policing

The Police & Military Should Not Mix

Boris’s announcement that he will use the military to back up the police has quite rightly raised alarm across the political spectrum, and I think shows signs of confusion in the senior ranks of the government.

The Heresy Of Common Sense

In the Middle Ages, mankind started to look beyond religious reasons to explain the world around them.

The Strange Religion of Climate Change

Monday August 24th 2020  DP    Climate alarmism claims to be grounded in science. In reality, however, it displays many of the hallmarks of a religion – and a fundamentalist one at that.

Housing & Immigration – A For Britain Councillor’s Opinion

By Cllr M Americanos-Molinaro, Hertfordshire Branch Chair 19th August 2020 Recently, an opinion column poured scorn on local Councillors trying to respect constituents’ wishes on planning and housing issues.

Climate Change: The Hot Air over Carbon Dioxide

DP August 7th 2020   We have been trained to think of carbon dioxide as a pollutant. Use of the phrase ‘carbon pollution’ has become standard, by both politicians and the media.

Why Islam Spreads: 10 Reasons They Don’t Want You To Know

We have all heard the claim that Islam is the fastest growing religion, a claim implying that, were it the case, this would somehow prove Islam’s truth and value.

Animal Welfare – Let’s Keep up the Pressure

Anne Marie Waters  March 19th 2020    On the 16th of March, MPs in our Parliament debated the welfare of animals.  This doesn’t happen often, and rarely is anything actually achieved.  For years, people have campaigned against the live export of animals, so far to no avail.  People campaign against religious slaughter, but this isn’t…

A good result on gender madness, but unlikely to be permanent

Anne Marie Waters  March 11th 2020   The Court of Appeal has ruled that people must state their sex (i.e. male or female) on their passports.  This may sound like common sense has at last prevailed, but upon reading the court’s judgement, it is clear this is unlikely to last.  The fact that our courts…

At the Heart of Climate Alarmism

By Paul Burgess, Spokesman for the Environment 10th March 2020 The very heart of climate alarmism is the claim that CO2 levels control the temperature of the earth.  So let us examine that by simply looking at the history of the earth.

Patel’s immigration policy is largely to be welcomed, but…

Anne Marie Waters  March 2nd 2020   Priti Patel’s immigration policies are largely to be welcomed. A points-based system is an obvious method of weighing up a person’s merits and deciding who can or can’t come to Britain.

Government hides the truth about rape gangs (again)

Anne Marie Waters February 23rd 2020   They must know the disquiet it will cause.  They must know that the silence will only help to confirm what I and others have said for many years.  Even so, even with this in mind, our leaders have chosen to cover up the truth.  The truth therefore must…

The Foundations of it All – Our Education Policy

Anne Marie Waters  February 17th 2020   If you had enormous influence over the minds of the young, how would you use it?  Would you teach them to be positive and self-respectful, or would you fill their minds with shame and self-contempt?  The former is a gift to a child, the latter is nothing short…

Fair Cop’s Day In Court

By Mike Speakman; Retired Deputy Chief Constable, Policing Spokesman 15th February  2020 In recent years, it has sometimes been said, with a sense of irony, that George Orwell’s 1984 was written as fiction, not an implementation manual.

Our First Priority – Law and Order

Anne Marie Waters February 6th 2020   It is fairly uncontroversial, or should be uncontroversial, for a government’s number one priority to be the safety and well-being of those who elect them.  One could make this assumption, but would not always be correct.  Today, in the United Kingdom, law and order has quite simply broken…

Happy Brexit Day!

Anne Marie Waters  January 31st 2020    Well, here it is.  The day we’ve been waiting for.  But before we get to the celebrations, let’s answer the critics.

Not “Asian” nor “Pakistani”: These rape gangs are Muslim

Anne Marie Waters  January 17th 2020    We can expect little better from the press.  Once again, the nation’s “journalists” are participating in (and encouraging) racial slurs in order to protect a religion, an ideology, from the scrutiny it so richly deserves.  A report this week revealed that Greater Manchester Police allowed known rapists of…

More Police Force Mergers?

By Mike Speakman, Policing  Spokesman 13th January 2020 There is a new initiative from the Police Chiefs Council to merge police forces.

Most UK supermarkets have made a commitment to end the sale of caged hen eggs by 2025

Supermarkets made a commitment to stop selling caged hen eggs by 2025. For Britain believes this is not enough!

Left Wing Terrorism is a Growing Menace

Anne Marie Waters  December 6th 2019    If you read the mainstream press, it will attempt to persuade you that “far right” terrorism is a growing menace in Britain.
