    Italy, France, and the madness of the Euro

    It is just possible that France will elect two candidates in the first round presidential elections who want to pull out of the euro. Italy, which is flat on its back due to a euro massively overvalued compared to its fundamentals, can only srcratch its head. Meanwhile, the lunacy will have to end some time

    Brexit in court. It's politics stupid

    Disagreeing with the anti-Brexit court cases has nothing to do with disrespect of the legal system. It is opposition to the courts being a playground for the rich to obstruct the democratic process. Still, Tony Blair is in on the anti-Brexit act. So there shuould be a surge in pro-Brexit sentiment

    Ignore Remoaners: Regulation after Brexit is no problem

    Remainers made big play about the supposed complications of adjusting regulations after Brexit. In reality, this was just empty scare mongering. We take back control of our laws and then act in our perceived national interest. How's that for a plan?

    The UK should stop negotiating with itself over Brexit

    With Brexit in mind, some people in the UK need to wake up to the reality of how you do well in an auction or a negotiation. You don't tell everyone in advance and, in a team, you don't fight amongst yourselves. We hold many cards. Play then wisely, and we'll do very well

    On Brexit, Labour hasn't got a clue

    There is little evidence Labour actually understand the implications of their own policies, which, on Brexit, are in any case all over the place. They are cynical and confused because they can't fully accept Brexit's democtratic mandate. Voters will rightly punish them

    In Europe, the center is not holding

    As Italian PM Renzi quits, from Italy, to France, through Austria and across Europe the center is finding it difficult to hold. While mere anarchy may not yet be being loosed upon the world, only those in denial can doubt that the tectonic plates are shifting

    It isn't Britain that's confused about Brexit, it's the EU

    For those who are not in denial about Brexit, Britain's broad aims are pretty clear. The real issue is what the remaining EU 27 want from us. It's Europe that's in chaos about Brexit, not Britain, and Europe that has the real questions to answer

    EU states must pay their share to NATO, not an EU army

    The European Union yet again shows itself as a danger to the stability of Europe as it continues with its mad idea of a European army. Meanwhile, NATO -- the only serious Western defence outfit -- is hampered because only 5 of its member states pay their fair share. We need to back NATO and get the EU out of everyone's way

    Blocking Brexit will create the real hostility

    It is the embittered and failed Remain camp that is stoking anger and division in Britain over Brexit. They need to relearn the democratic game and respect the people. If they don't, the wounds will widen and the anger will be visited upon them

    Britain’s bright future after Brexit

    It is becoming clearer and clearer, from multiple sources and multiple countries, that Britain has a bright future after Brexit. Let's make it happen as soon as possible and prove to future generations that voters made the right decision

    Brexit Britain gets going

    The EU Referendum showed the global establishment British voters will not be told what to do. It is fitting we now have a PM who will not be told what to do by Brussels bureaucrats or their fellow leaders, but rather they will obey the wishes of the Great British Public. Brexit is getting going

    EU crisis summit in Ventotene replete with delusion

    The highly symbolic EU summit in Ventotene, Italy, inaugurates a move in the balance of power to the left. A new EU army is likely to be the first substantive move after the Brexit vote, as the delusions continue unabated
