    Should we forgive Justin Gatlin?

    American Justin Gatlin, an athlete twice banned for taking illegal drugs, beat Usain Bolt in the 100 metres. Gatlin was continually jeered, but is this right? Can and should we forgive the American for his misdemeanours?

    Blame the EU for this airport chaos

    The chaos at some European airports is another example of incompetence and bad faith in Europe, while European airlines and Brussels are agiain showing petty mindedness on aviation policy to punish British travellers for Brexit. They will not succeed in breaking our will

    Ironies and delusions of the anti-Brexit camp

    It is a cruel irony that those who are the most pro EU are the most negative about the nature and likely actions of our EU partners in negotiating a Brexit deal. They are also going to be proved wrong on this as on so much else about Brexit, since a good deal is in everybody's interests

    Blair and the dangerous, unrepentant Remoaners

    Tony Blair is possibly the most reviled political figure in Britain -- on both Right and Left. But he thinks he has the right to start interfering over Brexit, hoping, above all, he can reverse it. Butt out Tony, and finally give the British people a break

    Inequality, growth, fairness: Not quite what you thought

    All the available evidence shows we should focus on growth and forget about inequality. Yes, some rich people will get richer, but the really great news is that the poor will get richer as well. Put another way, socialism just makes everyone poorer, especially those who are aleady poor

    Britain has beaten Continental bullies before

    As we have done before, we will push past the bullies in Europe as a truly global trading nation, and we will emerge triumphant from the Brexit negotiations by defying threats, embracing our global connections, and believing in the Great British Public

    Cardinal sins mean a long hot summer for the Pope

    Pope Francis has a multitude of problems on his hands, not just for the summer but for the long term. The sins of some of his cardinals may or may not be forgiven by the Almighty, but the Pope has a very real challenge right here on Earth

    Why Brussels will calm down about Brexit

    With Verhofstadt's and Barnier's wrecking tactics now fully exposed, and with yet another massive crisis looming over Poland, Brussels simply cannot afford a fight with Britain. Merkel and company will ensure a smooth Brexit, because they ultimately have no choice

    It’s time to stop burying Conservative principles

    By burying the principles of Conservatism over the past decade, our party has allowed itself to be tarnished by the opposition as selfish, greedy, and mean. We need to proudly make a positive case for Conservatism and win the battle of ideas, otherwise we will lose power completely

    Trade deal offers show post-Brexit world is our oyster

    At least 35 countries have expressed an interest in a free trade deal with Brexit Britain, including the United States, Japan, and Australia. Brexit is going to be a bonanza. So drop the pessimism, and get behind it
