Prime Minister Farage?

18th June 2019 8

Boris Johnson’s chances of being elected Tory leaded received a dramatic boost with the publication of an opinion poll in the Telegraph showing that under his leadership, the Conservative Party would storm to victory at the next election. The figures are stunning. No-one else comes near Boris in appealing to the wider electorate. Whether they trust him or not, like … [Read on]

We want our country back

27th May 2019 17

I had always thought that Gracie Fields’ great wartime song, ‘Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye,’ was written with the departing troops in mind, but it was actually sung by Gracie Fields in the 1939 film ‘Shipyard Sally’ to accompany her departure from Glasgow to present a petition from the men of the Clyde to the owners in … [Read on]

Scrapyard Britain

23rd May 2019 6

British Steel, our second largest steelmaker, is to be liquidated following the failure of rescue talks between the government and Greybull, the American private equity firm that manages it. The government would not provide the £30 million loan needed to tide it over (no way of getting round those EU state aid rules, we are told, and since we are … [Read on]

Scruton: Another reason to see off the Tories at the next poll

11th April 2019 19

The sacking of our most eminent conservative philosopher, Sir Roger Scruton, from his post as chair of the ‘Building Better Building Beautiful’ Commission for having expressed opinions about the validity of the term Islamophobia, the influence of George Soros, and the brainwashing of the Chinese – opinions with which most conservatives would agree – tells us all we need to … [Read on]

The Pied Piper of Brussels

24th March 2019 1

Some of us predicted the DUP would cave in, succumb to government bribes and threats, and support Mrs May’s dreadful deal. The threat of a Corbyn government is a potent weapon if you are a beleaguered Unionist in Northern Ireland. But the Unionists showed themselves to be men and women of their word, unlike May, and stood firm on the … [Read on]

The Perpetual Prime Minister

19th March 2019 6

Despite the parliamentary and governmental chaos, the coronation of Theresa May as Brexit Queen will be accomplished. Somehow, she will win her third meaningful vote. The DUP will be bribed to support her deal with cosmetic legal assurances concerning the backstop, and by the promise of extra cash – the latter being much the more persuasive. Jacob Rees-Mogg, the principled … [Read on]

Mrs May succeeds in chaining us to Brussels forever

9th March 2019 0

With any luck, the House of Commons will vote on Tuesday to reject Mrs May’s appalling withdrawal deal and bring into play votes on ‘no deal’ and extending Article 50 that a desperate May was panicked into promising to prevent mass resignations from her government. The delicious irony is that she will then be forced in person to vote ‘for’ … [Read on]

Government sells the BBC to Brussels

5th March 2019 3

In a supposedly good news article entitled ‘European investment bucks Brexit’, The Telegraph revealed today that all is well with our long-term economic prospects because European investment in Britain has doubled over the past three years. In the past year alone, EU buyers ‘snapped up 533 UK assets through mergers and acquisitions’ including ‘companies, property and stakes in fast-growing firms’ … [Read on]
