Brexit, Article 50 and constitutional crisis: Why our quaint little nation, with its incredible history, was never really part of the EU

By repealing the European Economic Communities Act 1972 that initially brought us into the EU, decades of improvised legislative stacking would suddenly become unconstitutional. If a direct ‘yes or no’ question were put to Parliament, on repealing the Act or … Continue reading

Brexit: UK High Court Intervenes

Nobody is saying the referendum shouldn’t have happened, nor does this current judgment deny the result, it merely questions the apparatus by which the decision is now put into effect. The process should have the continuous involvement of recourse to Parliament, and could therefore drag on even longer, opening the door for economic instability both in the UK and in Europe in the interim. With a second Eurozone crisis looming, nobody wants Brexit to take decades. Continue reading

Behind The Story of “Mr. Brexit” on the Trump Train

While the Donald declared they would be “friends for life,” Farage stopped short of actually endorsing Trump, saying it was not proper for a British citizen to tell American voters what to do—a not-so-subtle slap at President Obama for urging British voters to support “Remain” in the Brexit referendum.

The Paris-San Bernardino Terrorist Attacks and the Battle for Western Civilization

Whether solutions point in the direction of stemming the migrant flow through new policies, securing the EU borders, reinstating passports and border checks for each Schengen nation, or witnessing countries taking this issue into their own hands, one thing is certain: peace and unity cannot be maintained if the situation goes unchanged. The recent Islamist attacks on Paris and San Bernardino are pivotal moments for the future of Western civilization, which now hangs in the balance. Continue reading

Torries and Scottish Nationalists Rout Opponents in UK General Election

Though Labour and the LibDems have often worked well with the SNP inside Scottish politics, when it came to deciding the fate of the Union, Labour and the LibDems joined the right-wing in advocating for preservation of the Union, which may have cost them dearly. Now that the union is preserved, they have been effectively “punished” for their position on Scottish independence. The LibDems also got a shellacking by losing 47 seats and holding on to a mere eight, with party leader Nick Clegg resigning his post. Continue reading
