UKIP: The Mummy Returns

16th November 2019 10

Bognor Regis is hardly a key battleground in the coming General Election. It’s a safe Tory seat, where the incumbent took 59% of the vote in 2017. Traditional folk live here, unlike the trendy liberals of nearby Brighton (otherwise known as London-by-Sea). However, being of Remain disposition in a Leave community, MP Nick Gibb is not to everyone’s satisfaction.  How … [Read on]

Boris the Betrayer?

12th November 2019 11

So, Farage has stood down his candidates in seats the Tories are most likely to win. Fear of Corbyn and fear of splitting the Leave vote has done the trick. Farage’s financial backers are putting the pressure on, with Aaron Banks now demanding the Brexit party only stands in forty seats. Apparently, we have no choice but to put our … [Read on]

In an interview with Channel 4 News she claimed, ‘Had that been a block full of white people, they’d have done everything to get them out as fast as possible.’ Her remarks have been roundly condemned, including by Karen Bell, … [Read on]

Boris’s dirty Brexit ?

5th November 2019 11

With the long-awaited election called, we can only admire how the Conservative party and its supporters in the mainstream media have closed ranks behind Boris Johnson and his deal. Not a single member of the ERG – the band of ‘hard’ Brexiteers who until only the other week were arguing we should leave on 31 October, deal or no deal, … [Read on]
