Death of a royal exposes weaknesses in the British establishment
I don’t think anyone really knows what Britain is anymore, not least the people in charge of steering the country. The death of Philip Mountbatten last week highlighted its odd nature. Suddenly, the feudal backbone was exposed, with the BBC notably behaving like a state broadcaster in s

The papers were produced by a coalition of older Freedom editors and supporters backing up a new collective with Marie Louise Berneri and Vernon Richards at its core. At the end of 1944 a wave of political arrests saw them arrested alongside John Hewetson and Philip Sansom in what became a celebrated free speech case.

The alt right in shards: what has become of the movement?
By early 2020, the separation and decline of the alt right had become a matter of intense confusion for some of its members. One confused poster wrote on the now mostly empty 8kun: “Where the fuck did everyone go?” Came the reply: “The chans are dying anon […] I suggest you train, pick up a book or beg
