    Brexit will mean both independence and prosperity

    Since 1998 our exports of goods to the EU have grown at just 0.2% a year, whereas our goods export to non EU has grown sixteen times faster at 3.3%. But Brexit isn't just about trade. It's about regaining our independence. We're going to be so much better off out, and in so many different ways

    Brexit and CO2: The BBC, news, and propaganda

    The BBC has two campaigns running. One is to explain why the Remain campaign was really right and should not have lost. The other is to stress the need to cut back on CO2. No wonder the public, which pays for the BBC through taxes, is now deeply cynical about mainstream media's claims to impartiality

    Italy's fight with EU bullies is part of Euro disaster story

    The logic of EU federalist insanity continues to play its part in the downfall of European democracy. Italy's ugly fight with Brussels bullies over the budget is just the latest chapter. Thank goodness for Brexit!

    History shows caving in to EU brings down Tory PMs

    Tory prime ministers taking disastrous advice on policy towards the EU from the CBI, and basing decisions on flat out wrong predictions from the Bank of England and the Treasury, have sealed their own downfall. Theresa May should learn the lessons of history, and show some backbone against the bullies in Brussels

    Bungling Brexit or leading the Commonwealth?

    The Commonwealth is home to 2.4 billion people on 5 continents around the world. Member countries range from India to Canada to the Seychelles and the Bahamas. In terms of population size, GDP growth, and diversity of people and geography, the EU does not come close. If Theresa May can find the vision, we can lead the Commonwealth. The risk is, she's just going to bungle it

    The People’s Vote: Labour's October Surprise?

    Pressure is mounting on Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership to embrace a People's Vote; if they do it would be a game changer, argues political expert Patrick Sullivan

    May's Brexit misjudgements damage the UK

    Theresa May makes three key mistakes about Britain and Brexit: She accepts the Sinn Fein analysis of the border issue, she ignores the views of the English, and she all but grovels to the SNP in Scotland. She is a democratically elected leader of the Union and she needs to start acting like one to deliver the Brexit we voted for

    Budgeting for populism amid EU hypocrisy

    Brussels, you may recall, already vetoed Italy's first choice as finance minister -- a eurosceptic whose views were regarded as heretical. As the finance minister that Italy had to concede to Brussels calculates this year's budget, the Eurocrats are already up in arms. Does national democracy count for nothing?

    Why Britain should leave the EU's Single Market

    The EU's Single Market started out as a sensible idea in a bi-polar world divided between the Soviet bloc and the West. But the world became global and the Single Market became a political project for big business and Brussels power grabbers. It is an obsolete idea, and Britain will be far better off running its own global trade policy as a sovereign nation, says John Redwood MP

    State of Disunion: Thank goodness for Brexit

    EU State of the Union addresses are meant to mimic America's, but they are a sick joke for many "ordinary" Europeans. Commission President Juncker would not know the feelings of a European citizen if he ran over one in his chauffeur driven Mercedes. Thank goodness for Brexit

    UK business will thrive without EU red tape

    The EU is essentially a corporatist enterprise which looks after big businesses and harms smaller ones who do not have the resources to navigate the regulatory minefield. Brexit can and must put small businesses first, allowing for a growth bonanza as red tape is cut and disposed of. Let's get Britain out as soon as possible!

    Italy's populist government rides high in the polls

    The people of Italy believe, not without some justification, that their country has been ruined by a caste of people which has feathered its own nest. What the oddball combination of Di Maio and Salvini has done is to understand this discontent and to channel it. Unless the mainstream in Europe engages in radical self-reflection and reform, the populists will continue to have the ear of the people

    Enough of us giving aid to rich EU countries. Just Brexit!

    Signing a Withdrawal Agreement to give continuing overseas aid to a group of rich countries on the continent will leave us poorer. Let’s hear the Treasury calculations of how much economic damage is done by the large payments abroad, and by the large balance of payments deficit we run with the EU under present rules. Let's just get out and reap all the benefits

    EU will have to respect WTO rules in "no-deal" Brexit

    The EU has built World Trade rules into its own legal structures. So to say they will be able to stop us trading with them in a "no-deal" Brexit -- something that would harm them more than us anyway -- is both plain wrong, and typically dishonest scaremongering
