    The EU's diesel fiasco

    Wherever you stand on climate change, the utterly cynical policy in Brussels to promote diesel caused a pollution nightmare. Now they're preparing to prosecute at least 5 governments for having polluted cities! And the European taxpayer is left with the bill for this fiasco. Thank goodness we voted for Brexit

    Scotland more independent in UK than it would be in EU

    How often would an "independent" Scotland win a fight in Brussels? That is not a rhetorical question. The answer is clear: Never. If Scotland did leave the UK and join the EU it would have far less independence than it does now, and the SNP should be honest about saying so

    Of Turkey and Geert Wilders

    The Dutch government's decision to pick a diplomatic fight with Turkey has ramifications for Turkey's relationship with Europe as a whole. Meanwhile, Geert Wilders could yet emerge as leader of the biggest Dutch party as the migration question refuses to go away

    Trump's policy and Israel's

    With Hamas on the warpath, and Iran wanting a base in Syria, eager to fight Israel on the Golan Heights, and preparing to gain a stronger foothold in Middle Eastern affairs, an entente cordial between President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu is essential

    Brexit is our future, the Lords is not

    Lord Heseltine is the face of Britain's past. Brexit is the face of Britain's future. Has beens in a remote and unelected House of Lords must not be allowed to thwart the will of the British people

    Let's have a budget for prosperity not austerity

    Since Project Fear Brexit projections were all wrong, this year's budget needs to take account of that. We need a budget that promotes enterprise and taxes us less

    Enigma variations on Putin's Russia

    We must remember what Churchill said about the key to understanding Russia, drop petty analysis built on sour grapes after the US election, and forge a new deal mindful of Reagan's advice that we should trust but verify

    The fishing opportunity for Brexit Britain

    Brexit is an exciting opportunity for us to reclaim our sovereignty and restore our fishing industry, taking our place alongside Norway, Iceland, and the Faroes as a regional fishing powerhouse. It's another great reason to be filled with opitimism about our post-EU future

    Fake news and the shame of Israel "apartheid week"

    At the heart of Israel Apartheid Week is the lie that apartheid even exists in Israel. That lie demeans the struggle for justice of black South Africans. Those who participate are the true standard bearers of fake news, and they should be ashamed of themselves

    A tale of two revolutions

    It was 25 years ago when Nigel Farage started out as a parliamentary candidate, taking the first steps to a very British revolution. At the same time, Italy began a revolution against corruption. One revolution succeeded, the other did not
