    Labour's social populism and tooth fairy economics

    Labour may now be the new stupid party. It's certainly the anti-English party. But above all else it's the social populist party that will promise anything to anyone just to get elected. It'll be surprising if they don't pledge a raise to children from the tooth fairy

    Labour is lost, but Dave has an England headache too

    English devolution without an English parliament could be the mother of all constitutional messes. Labour is lost in space on all this. But does Cameron really understand what has to be done? He needs to learn from the SNP and UKIP that what people don't like is elite arrogance

    Western survival requires the end of Islamist jihadism

    The world is now full of jihadist groups, whether al-Qaeda, the Nusra Front, or the Islamic State, some of whose supporters are trained to carry out terrorist attacks in their Western countries of origin. Yet, our leaders fiddle while the West burns

    Ed Miliband: The man who hated England

    Labour destroyed the British economy and now recommends welfare dependency as the cure for its own misrule. But the real deal is shifty Ed Miliband's total contempt for the English by refusing England the same devolved rights as the Scots

    German taxpayers funding anti-Israel hate

    Despite Chancellor Merkel’s recent high-profile call to fight rising anti-Semitism, the German tax payer remains one of the leading sponsors of hate groups targeting Israel and the Jewish people. It's got to stop

    Getting real about English votes for English issues

    There are still plenty of misunderstandings about the English question after the Scottish referendum. It's not rocket science. Broadly, the English want the same devolved powers as the Scottish. Does Labour not get that?

    After Scotland, no excuses against an EU referendum

    Everyone has praised the democratic marvel of Scotland's referendum. Labour, LibDems and dithering Tories now have no excuse whatsoever for opposing a referendum on whether Britain stays in or quits the EU

    In reality, Scotland independence vote wasn't even close

    If the Scottish referendum result (55% No to 45% Yes) had been a US presidential election it would have been called a landslide. The bottom line is that the UK stays together and the matter is now settled for a generation. But what now for England?

  • Beheadings

    Islam, beheadings and politically correct denial

    The terrible beheadings in Iraq/Syria are not a new feature of Islamic fighters' behaviour. It was barely reported by our politically correct media that it was going on in the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s in Europe. How long before it gets to London and Paris?

    Would Scottish independence be a net plus for liberty?

    With North Korea backing Scottish independence it might seem the liberty argument is clear cut. But it isn't. Anyway, my prediction is that Scottish voters will get cold feet and vote no by a 56-44 margin, says Dan Mitchell from the Cato Institute
