A Tweet too far.

3rd December 2018 10

Before rushing off to London to meet a friend and give out Christmas presents, I had to look at Twitter, which has become an increasing part of my day. There it was: Do you reckon your mum cried when she gave you up, Jane? I stared at it, shocked, and my mind raced; someone I don’t know had researched my … [Read on]

Migration without Borders

30th November 2018 12

Forget the EU, forget the nation state. The UN is about to rule national borders to be extinct.The world’s people will, by right, be able to move anywhere they like, just as you or I might move to another town in Britain. You will have the same rights, so when the entire population of Somalia moves to Britain, followed by … [Read on]

The EU: War by other Means

29th November 2018 5

Early-19th-century Prussian general and military theorist Carl von Clausewitz (born in 1780) is famous for saying that “war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means”. Lots of people must have had the matching thought that diplomacy is the continuation of war by other means, but they’re being quiet about that thought at the moment. A time when we have … [Read on]

The Flood

25th November 2018 6

Let us open our borders to those ‘who will contribute’. Let us welcome ‘the brightest and the best’. Let us open our doors to ‘the best talent from across the world’. We need an immigration system that meets ‘the needs of our economy’. This is the true meaning of Brexit. No longer will we discriminate against non-EU citizens who might … [Read on]

Mrs May: Brussel’s Colonial Governor

18th November 2018 7

For those of us who participated in the modern-day Peasant’s Revolt (as Rod Liddle so aptly described the Brexit vote in this week’s Spectator), we must have known in our hearts that it was all doomed, that the establishment would never permit us to leave the EU. For a day or two last week, Mrs Day’s grotesque deal having provoked … [Read on]

The Meaning of Honour and why Britain has lost its own.

13th November 2018 4

Poland celebrated its 100th Anniversary of independence this Sunday. A frightening picture is depicted.  One of a divided Polish society in an unhappy country, with claims that many citizens have rejected liberalism and democracy in light of a growing nationalist sentiment. A conveniently worrying image for those discrediting a democratically elected government running their country. I should know, I was one … [Read on]

1914 – 1918: The war to start all wars up again.

10th November 2018 17

The nation’s youngsters have dutifully and thoroughly gobbled up all the propaganda fed to them by their teachers and by the scriptwriters and presenters of the many programmes made to mark the centenary of the ending of the First World War. It was chilling to hear a little girl of about eight expertly regurgitate the cliché “A lost generation.” Then … [Read on]

Our Island Story

6th November 2018 19

I have just begun reading Henrietta Marshall’s Our Island Story to my 8-year-old son. The story begins in the mists of time and mythology, with Neptune giving his beloved son Albion a beautiful island set in a silver sea – an island that the heroic Brutus, prince of Troy, later renames Britannia. We have got as far as the coming … [Read on]
