    Britain’s future is with the Commonwealth

    With Brexit we have a chance to right the historic wrong of joining the EU and betraying our natural allies. Now, once again, we can fully re-engage with the Commonwealth

    Russia and Doping: Why? And what is the future for sport?

    The Russian doping scandal has asked many questions. The reasons why systematic doping took place and the future are just two of these.

    No to an "Emergency Brake" on EU migration

    Brussels and British diplomats seem to be trying to cook up a plan for us to remain in the single market via a temporary "emergency brake" we can apply on migration. That's not what we voted for. We must reject the idea, and respect the referendum

    Italy on the rack of a failed Europeanist ideology

    Italy will not return to 2007 output levels until the mid-2020s. It is saddled with multiple problems. But being tied down and held on the rack of the Euro is its biggest obstacle to recovery. No-one has the courage to state the obvious. Easier to blame Brexit

    How Brexit can mean Brexit

    In order to regain control of our borders we must reject the single market and go for free trade with the EU instead. Johnson, Davis and Fox are the right people to get us where we need to be. It's happening. Britain is indeed leaving the EU

    Free movement and Brexit

    Post Brexit, the way to control numbers will be through a work permit system with quotas for skilled and qualified people we want, adapted to our needs. There is no need to stop people coming here as visitors or to invest and set up businesses. Yet again, Brexit is going to be perfectly smooth, defying all the scare stories

    Melania Trump's not unusual "plagiarism"

    Few can strike up the originality of Demosthenes or Cicero, or Churchill or Hemmingway. Melania Trump's minor transgressions pale, especially when compared to Joe Biden's, Martin Luther King Jr's, or even Barack and MIchelle Obama's. It's a tempest in a teapot

    Article 50 and the Brexit process explained

    Article 50 and the European Communities Act 1972 need some explaining. What does not need explanation is, "Brexit means Brexit". We must hold Theresa May to her word

    May's first test. Hit EU bigots like Tusk hard, real hard

    Hard-line neo-authoritarian Donald Tusk, European Council President, has said he wants to punish Britain for having the temerity to vote to leave the EU. Let's fight back. Ban this bigot, and demand his dismissal now

    Good luck Theresa May. Here's your existential challenge

    Good luck to Britain's new Prime Minister. Theresa May got her job on merit. No pseudo-feminism of the Left. Now she must govern on principle. Here are 2, key first steps to show she means business about Brexit. It's existential Theresa. Just do it

    Let's get cracking on Brexit: borders and money first

    The negotiation needs to start from the proposition that we are taking back control of our borders and money. These should not be in contention. The only thing the UK would like is continued tariff free trade. How's that for a plan?

    Shaking the status quo on women and Jews in Algeria

    A number of Algerian writers and journalists are creating a stir both at home and abroad by taking on some of the most controversial subjects of our age, such as Islam and the position of Jews and women. It is an example to the whole Arab world

    Obama slaps Remain, says Brexit will be orderly

    Humiliated, cynical, rump Remain has a certain power to spook confidence. But only for a short while. It's amazing how little of their scaremongering has come true. Obama says, in a slap in the face to Remain, Brexit will be an "orderly transition". And so it will

    How to get on in politics. Fail!

    The on-going farce in what is left of the Labour Party is nothing compared with the shin-kicking, eyeball-gouging Donnybrook going on amongst the Tories

    Lying Remain camp responsible for eruption of racism

    The entire Remain campaign was based on a pack of lies. Most of the scares have already been exposed. But by haunting immigrants with fears of being deported, and thus whipping up race-based hysteria, they have one last card to play in their shameful effort to smash the democratic will of the people
