    Brussels out: Brexit needs to get its act together

    EU Remain's strategy of infantile, lying, scaremongering is an insult to the electorate. But Brexit has got to get its act together. The real message should be simple -- ‘We want our country back; and we are going to get it!’

    Britain’s Foreign Aid Squandered by the EU

    As with almost everything the EU touches, the level of incompetence with which the EU uses its foreign aid foreign aid budget is staggering, and more than a little bit frightening. It's another reason to get Britain out on June 23

    UK is governed by a Grand Pro-EU Coalition

    The European Union is so corrosive of standard democratic norms that The Conservative leadership and the far-Left Labour leadership have effectively formed a grand coalition, stifling serious debate to keep us in the anti-democratic EU

    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!

    Israel: The bravest democracy of our time

    Against all the odds, against history itself (?), against the hatred of all hatreds, the Jewish state has survived and prospered. In the week of its 68th birthday, all free men and women of the world unite to say: God bless Israel, bravest democracy of our time

    Playboy's view on Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians

    Do you really know the difference between Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Greens? That great bastion of political science, Playboy, has got all the answers. Very funny and very astute

    Why the dishonest EU Remain campaign is a busted flush

    Project Fear, indeed. But, hoist with their own petard, it's Remain that has the most to fear now. Brexit is as popular as ever, and Remain has already fired off all its big guns. With weeks still to go, they haven't got any more scare stories left

    Do you know just how fishy the EU is for Britain?

    Our fishing industry has been decimated by the EU, but few Britons know just how unfair the quota system is. Leaving the EU will allow us to restore the once great British fishing industry

    Who do EU think you are kidding, Mr Cameron?

    Cameron's line that it's EU membership or war is one of the worst lies ever told to the British public by a serving prime minister. The real threat to peace in Europe comes from the mad, destructive EU project itself. "Peace for our time", anyone?

    UNESCO's resolution of hate against Israel

    It is shameful that UNESCO, set up for peaceful purposes to promote intercultural dialogue, has been misused for political purposes. Its one sided resolutions against Israel and its citizens demonstrate it has become a vehicle for hatred, not peace

    Milton Friedman, Adam Smith, and other people’s money

    Governments are bad at spending money because they are incentivised to spend it badly. At the societal level, this is why big-government economies make their people poor and small government economies achieve prosperity

    Change is afoot in the EU. But for better or worse?

    Future historians may well see immigration as the start of the EU’s collapse. Merkel has been so flaky on the refugee crisis, Cadburys could have wrapped her up and sold her. But before collapse there could be a big new push from Italy and the south

    Our democracy is not for sale to the EU

    When people see their vote having little effect on the world around them in a time of austerity, but still see big business getting preferential treatment, they lose faith in democracy. This is how the EU is conducting the massive TTIP trade deal with the US. It's another reason to get Britain out of the EU on June 23
