Third Heathrow Runway: Concreting over the countryside.

28th February 2020 12

The Telegraph is getting worked up about the vetoing of Heathrow expansion by the Court of Appeal. Why, they wonder, should a small number of climate activists get in the way of our national economic needs – in other words, the needs of globetrotting business executives and tourists? But it’s not only climate activists, along with anyone who attributes global … [Read on]

Kicking the Immigration Habit

21st February 2020 7

At last we are to have an immigration system which will force employers to train-up the indigenous population, instead of allowing them to employ imported cheap labour, which the state must then subsidise with in-work benefits. This is clearly an improvement. Yet even among the most ardent proponents of a ‘points-based’ immigration system, we hear the same hoary old platitudes: … [Read on]

Huawei. Boris takes his orders from Whitehall and bottles it

29th January 2020 17

We have been at ‘cyber war’ for years with China, the world’s foremost mass-surveillance state, world-leader in industrial espionage equipped with armies of hackers mounting cyber-attacks on Western corporate and governmental infrastructure systems – and now we plan to hand over them control of our digital communications systems, and further enhance their technological lead.

In a recent article in the Spectator entitled ‘Brexit Bargains’, Matthew Lynn gave us a glimpse of what Brexit really means to the global liberals of the modern Conservative party. The good news, Lynn argues, is that the current spate of foreign takeover bids – he cites the Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s £30 billion bid for its London rival, the … [Read on]

Labour: Stamping on the faces of clever children

25th September 2019 14

Labour is to abolish private schools. There will be howls of anguish from conservatives and even some liberals. But the policy is merely the logical next step in Labour’s social justice agenda. All forms of privilege, discrimination and inequality must be eliminated. And what is private education but an obscene form of privilege?  Besides, the current Conservative government has blazed … [Read on]
