    Cameron will leave a legacy of bitter division

    The positions of the Brexiteers and Remainers have polarised to such an extent that, post referendum, civil war is almost inevitable. What has been said, can't be unsaid. Cameron will leave a legacy of bitter division

    The failed record of EU Remain's grand scaremongerers

    In 2007, none of the IMF, World Bank, UK Treasury or Bank of England predicted the forthcoming great recession, brought on by their policies. These same institutions now ask us to trust them in their judgements on UK membership of the EU. Don't!

    Chinese oppression spreads, danger lurks

    China is increasingly turning away from global norms and by extension is heading down a path of more insularity. China is more illiberal, more capricious, and more repressive than at any time since at least the Tiananmen Square massacre, in 1989. Danger here. Democracies in Asia and beyond should take note

    How UK's EU membership already cost us £200 bln

    Anti-Semitism and Labour's Hitler problem

    Has anti-Semitism now entered the ideological bloodstream of the British left? Bizarrely, Adolf Hitler now seems the favorite reference of the left wingers in the Labour Party. Where will the lunacy end?
