    Why Italy's migrant problem has not led to terrorism

    With huge numbers of undocumented migrants from hot spot Muslim countries one might have thought Italy would have a major terrorism problem. It doesn't, and that is because it just does its intelligence, policing, and community management better, and unshackled from political correctness

    Enough talk about a transitional deal with the EU

    A transitional arrangement could easily end up meaning another five years until Brexit means Brexit. That could mean Brexit doesn't happen at all. The talk of a transitional arrangement needs to stop. Let's just get Britain out, and stop the dithering

    Misjudging Brexit: Strong Germany vs weakened Britain

    There is much delusional talk following the general election about a weak Britain and a strong Germany. But the Prime Minister is actually in a much stronger position than Mrs. Merkel in their respective parliaments. Rump Remain needs to pay more attention to the world as it is than as they'd wish it to be

    INSTANT VIEW: May stuns critics with Queen's speech

    The Queen's Speech was a brilliant illustration of how less can be more. Theresa May has shown that modern Britain has one and only one top priority: deliver on Brexit and, thus, back the will of the people. Opponents of this government's core agenda must now accept that they oppose democracy itself

    Anti-Brexit Lib Dems now full-on neo-authoritarian party

    Even calling the party the Liberal Democrats is fake news. That these anti-Brexit scoundrels are neither liberal nor democratic is no longer a cheap jibe. It is the most accurate way to characterise them. The Lib Dems are now a full-on neo-authoritarian party

    Pro-Brexit, Pro-Europe: Not so hard to understand

    As Britain and the EU begin Brexit negotiations it is timely to restate a fact that is easily missed: Britain is not leaving Europe, just the EU. Brexit is a liberating force for enlightened internationalism, and a rejection of narrow regionalism. Our friends in Europe should embrace our decision, and discard their prejudices

    Either in or out: There is no hard or soft Brexit

    The obsessive disucssion in mainstream media about a supposed choice between hard and soft Brexit is based on an entirely false premise. We either leave the Single Market and Customs Union or we don't really leave the EU. It's real Brexit or fake Brexit. At the general election, 86% of voters went for real Brexit. That choice must be respected

    May govt should do one thing, and do it well: Brexit

    Amid all the other business of government, there is one overriding priority for Theresa May: get Britain out of the EU and the Single Market as efficiently and as quickly as possible. History, and the British people, will thank May for performing this one single task, and then stepping aside for someone else

    Death by socialism: Demise of the world's oldest bank

    You could only get on in Italy's MPS bank if you were a socialist. Founded in 1472, it was owned by a socialist foundation, and if your family were something in local lefty politics you could get a job in the bank. It is rather as if Alitalia had decreed all its pilots should be short-sighted. Shockingly, now it's going under

    Forget opinion polls. Why GE2017 result will be Con 43 pct to Labour 35 pct

    Forget the opinion polls. The best guide to today's general election is what happened just two years ago in 2015. Use that as your base, then add in the extra votes that the Tories and Labour will get from other sources, and you get Con 43 to Lab 35

    This election could finish off the hardcore Europhiles

    All over Britain, one of the few things that we can be pretty confident of in Thursday's elections is that Remain-friendly candidates are in for a pasting. Eurofanatical Lib Dems and Greens in particular face humiliation. And wouldn't it be marvellous if Nick Clegg lost his seat? Watch this space...

    Project Fear Alert: Brexit won't harm the young

    Rump Remain is composed of a sad and desperate bunch who still cannot deal with the referendum result without resort to scare tactics. They say the young will suffer badly after Brexit, but sober analysis shows they stand to gain as much as anyone else

    No deal is better than a bad deal

    Of the parties contesting the June 8 general election who have a real chance of wining seats, only the Conservatives are tough enough and smart enough on Europe to maximise the chances of a good Brexit deal

    Brexit, the NHS, and the English language

    Foreign doctors are a massive bonus to the NHS. What is dangerous and unfair to all concerned are EU migration rules which mean a European doctor who speaks poor English is given easy access to working in the NHS while a Nigerian doctor who speaks fluent English has a dozen hoops to jump through. Brexit will cure this illness

    Every reason for optimism on UK-EU Brexit deal

    Even though Britain would be fine if it walked away after Brexit without a deal, the EU has every reason to forge a good one. But isn't it strange how rump Remain has such low expectations on decent behaviour in the talks by their beloved EU
