The European Spring Was Sprung, But Only a Fool Would Imagine Euroscepticism Is Dead in the UK

As I have made plain before, there is no such thing as a soft and a hard Brexit. This is little more than a narrative device enabling politicians to adopt a multitude of contradictory opinions in order to appease all … Continue reading

An Election to Change the Course of History

Perhaps Sturgeon’s bloody mindedness and political myopia will be her own downfall. To her, the primary narrative for a second ballot has been that Brexit is entirely against Scotland’s democratic wishes, as Scotland voted by a significant margin to remain. … Continue reading

Hashtags and Terrorism: A Story from the West

When the heart of Europe was first being hit by terrorism, people were shocked. Now, the shock is subsiding and empty promises of “we will survive” are taking its place. But we as law abiding citizens aren’t doing anything and … Continue reading

EU Tusk Affair: Poland Is No UK

The new generation in Poland, born and raised in freedom, is absolutely worth watching – it is they, contrary to the popular narrative, and not the retirees, who swayed the last electoral cycle: the young, who don’t watch traditional TV, … Continue reading

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

They would then be told that they would have to give up the right to make their own laws, pay for membership and have no border control.

Why would we join such a club today? Why would we join such a woefully unreformed Europe? Would anybody in their right mind join the EU as it is today? I don’t think so.” – Boris Johnson Continue reading

Both the French National Front and the UK Independence Party were big winners with 26% (25 seats) and 29% (24 seats) respectively. “The people have spoken loud and clear,” exclaimed Marine Le Pen. “They no longer want to be led by those outside our borders, by EU commissioners and technocrats who are unelected. They want to be protected from globalization and take back the reins of their destiny,”… Continue reading
