    What might an EU/UK agreement actually look like?

    The UK is perfectly willing, as it always has been, to sign a meaningful free trade agreement with the EU. If the EU can't put aside its delusions, we'll happily go for no deal and adopt WTO rules. Overall, the ball is in the EU's court, and they need to act in good faith, or we'll just walk away

    British global influence as strong as ever post-Brexit

    Britain has extraordinary reserves of both soft and hard power which it will continue to employ after Brexit. The scaremongers who say we will be weakened without membership of the European Union understand neither the EU nor Britain

    EU propaganda and a frightening roadmap to federalism

    The EU has produced a frightening new report arguing for vastly greater centralisation, deeper federalism, and yet further emasculation of the democratic nation state. These people are dangerous and delusional. Brexit cannot happen fast enough

    Irish border won't be a problem if no Brexit deal

    The Irish border will not pose a problem even if there is no Brexit deal. What people fail to understand is that adopting WTO rules would only add a single line to already existing paperwork. No Brexit deal, no problem!

    Brexit budget may "surprise" on the upside

    The official forecasters, bless them, have struggled by taking too pessimistic a view of Brexit. This has impacted expectations about the UK economy. So we should not be at all shocked if there are more "surprises" on the upside as Brexit gets closer

    Signs continue to show Brexit good for the economy

    The daily diet of scaremongering by the Remain camp, which has not relented even after all this time, is belied by the hard economic data which shows Brexit is going to be a great economic success

    Brexit's vital political, not economic, importance

    There is no evidence that joining the EEC or completing the single market did anything to boost UK growth so it is difficult to see how leaving it will do the opposite. The greatest benefit from Brexit and its real significance is that we regain our sovereignty. That's why we need to get out as soon as possible

    Juncker personifies everything that is wrong with EU

    It is easy to dismiss European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker as an anti-democratic clown. He is, but that is not the point, which is that he accurately personifies a failing project which is doing great harm to Europe. Thank goodness for Brexit!

    How to know if we have a good deal on Brexit

    No deal with the EU is way better than much of what is being touted right now. The reality is that it is massively in the EU's interests that they have a good deal for Brexit. In order to overcome some of their delusional nonsense we just have to make it crystal clear we really will walk away if they keep on acting up

    How no Brexit deal really can work, and why it matters

    It is quite clear from the different tone of remarks coming from Mrs Merkel, the Commission, and elsewhere within the EU that they are very worried at just how popular the idea of a no deal, WTO model is with many UK voters for Brexit. As reason sinks in, our hand gets stronger. We must use it

    Farming for Britain in a great post-EU future

    When we leave the EU we will be able to design a fishing and farming policy that allows us to sustain higher levels of home production, after the disaster of Brussels driven policies. We just can't get out of the EU fast enough

    UK government must get serious about No Brexit deal

    Charles de Gaulle famously said "Non" to Britain joining the EU. Alas, we didn't take no for an answer. But now that we are leaving, we should emulate de Gaulle and be prepared to say a decisive "Non" to Brussels. Given EU intransigence, preparing for no Brexit deal is now a vital part of our strategy

    How we get a smooth Brexit with No Deal

    If we Brexit without a deal, financial services and the City will be fine, exporting to the EU will be all but unaffected in terms of red tape, the Irish border can be sorted out, universities won't suffer, and we'll reassert our fishing rights. In other words, No deal, is No cliff edge. We shouldn't fear it one bit

    UKIP leader right we should threaten to ditch Brexit talks

    We are pointlessly allowing ourselves to be bullied by Brussels. We know how to deal with bullies. Stand up to them, tell them it is we who won't proceed to the next stage of Brexit talks if they don't buck their ideas up, and see how long Barnier and company's fake tough guy act can last

    US economist: Britain's post-Brexit path to prosperity

    The EU is terrified that Britain will become a low tax, business friendly haven after Brexit. But that is exactly what Britain can now become, and it will ensure a stellar future outside the confines of the failing Brussels behemoth
