    Either in or out: There is no hard or soft Brexit

    The obsessive disucssion in mainstream media about a supposed choice between hard and soft Brexit is based on an entirely false premise. We either leave the Single Market and Customs Union or we don't really leave the EU. It's real Brexit or fake Brexit. At the general election, 86% of voters went for real Brexit. That choice must be respected

    The blind hatred of the United Nations against Israel

    Between 2012 and 2015 the UN General Assembly adopted 97 resolutions critical of countries; 87 of them were against Israel. This is either worthy of an entry in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or it's blind hatred, plain and simple

    May govt should do one thing, and do it well: Brexit

    Amid all the other business of government, there is one overriding priority for Theresa May: get Britain out of the EU and the Single Market as efficiently and as quickly as possible. History, and the British people, will thank May for performing this one single task, and then stepping aside for someone else

    Death by socialism: Demise of the world's oldest bank

    You could only get on in Italy's MPS bank if you were a socialist. Founded in 1472, it was owned by a socialist foundation, and if your family were something in local lefty politics you could get a job in the bank. It is rather as if Alitalia had decreed all its pilots should be short-sighted. Shockingly, now it's going under

    ANALYSIS: Corbyn surge UK version of Le Pen phenomenon

    Despite the Conservative 'victory' in the UK election, the big story is that the Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn -- a barely reconstructed Marxist who has befriended Islamist terror groups -- did so well. As in continental Europe, democracy as we have known it in Britain now faces a real and worrying challenge

    This election could finish off the hardcore Europhiles

    All over Britain, one of the few things that we can be pretty confident of in Thursday's elections is that Remain-friendly candidates are in for a pasting. Eurofanatical Lib Dems and Greens in particular face humiliation. And wouldn't it be marvellous if Nick Clegg lost his seat? Watch this space...

    The choice: Vote Conservative or it's Corbyn for PM

    If there is no overall majority Britain will get a Labour led coalition. Corbyn is weak on counter-terrorism, hopeless on Brexit, and would ruin the economy with old fashioned tax and spend. If you want to avoid this disaster, you need to vote Conservative on Thursday

    Election campaign must go on after London attacks

    We give in to the terrorists if we let them influence our daily lives. General election campaigning in Britain must go on, especially since the Labour leader still has much to answer for over his past relationship with terror groups. This isn't an awkward time to raise that subject, it's the most important time to raise it

    The case in support of Trump on Paris climate deal

    As worldwide condemnation greets President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris climate change deal, basic journalistic standards dictate that we understand his case. Despite what you may have gleaned from mainstream media, there is one, whether you agree with it or not

    Project Fear Alert: Brexit won't harm the young

    Rump Remain is composed of a sad and desperate bunch who still cannot deal with the referendum result without resort to scare tactics. They say the young will suffer badly after Brexit, but sober analysis shows they stand to gain as much as anyone else
