    The German election could be good news for Brexit

    The prospective inclusion of the relatively eurosceptic FDP in Angela Merkel's new coalition combined with a rise in anti-establishment sentiment in Germany could well make a fair and reasonable Brexit deal more likely than not

    Brexit: We must still be fully prepared for no deal option

    What the civil service have to grasp is there is no cliff edge. It is quite possible for the UK to have functioning borders and trade arrangements on March 2019 even with no Brexit deal. 160 other countries trade daily with the EU and most have no special Trade Agreement. No deal is still way better than a bad deal, and we should still get out of the EU asap

    The bizarre state of the European Union

    Remainers are yet again exposed for their misunderstanding of the EU's imperial ambitions by the words of the European Commission president himself. Jean-Claude Juncker lives in a dangerous fantasy world, and Britain will be so much better off out of it

    Anti-Brexit Blair's scorn for the British people

    Tony Blair is a Remoaner on speed. He dismisses the referendum almost completely. In his anti-Brexit fantasy world, he is pushing immigration policies that Brussels has already rejected, and he has no idea why Britons want to leave. Just butt out Tony. Your daft ideas aren't welcome

    The politics of statues from Washington to Moscow

    The eradication of General Robert E. Lee from American history is not occasioning any soul searching in Russia where Valdimir Putin is raising up the image of Felix Dzerzhinsky, the effective founder of the KGB. Statues do tell us something. President Trump should be aware of the message from Moscow

    German tantrums over Britain and Brexit

    The German media and probably some in the German and EU governments misjudge the UK position on Brexit. Once again they think pressure, personal ridicule, scorn will force the UK to see it their way. It did not achieve their end when they tried to pressurise us into joining the Euro, and it won't work now

    Yes to an EU divorce bill; No to a leaving present

    We'll pay a fair Brexit divorce bill, but we won't give them a leaving present. Those who say you don’t leave a restaurant without paying the bill are right. But once you have left the restaurant you do not have to pay for the meals of other people who are still dining. Brussels needs to wake up

    The EU is a house deeply divided

    The issue of refugees is bringing out into the open the deep divisions inside the EU which make a nonsense of ever closer union. Former communist countries who endured occupation do not take kindly to being dictated to by Brussels, and Brexit may yet be an example they will wish to follow

    History will not be kind to the "broken people" of Remain

    UPDATE: In the US and elsewhere academic and intellectual opinion has shifted following this article... The infantilism and anti-intellectualism of the anti-Brexit camp has created much unnecessary bad feeling in Britain. But, like the Fellow Travellers of the Cold War, they are the ones that will ultimately suffer when history hands down its judgement

    EU could make no Brexit deal a self-fulfilling prophesy

    The EU and its supporters are mired in delusion and hysteria. It almost looks as if they'd rather have no deal than one in their own interests. They'll make that a self-fulfilling prophesy unless they wise up soon

    Jobless rate falls, Project Fear fails

    The big rise in employment since the Brexit vote again raises the question of why George Osborne's Treasury forecast big job losses if we voted for Brexit and sent our Article 50 letter. Was it incompetence or were they talking down the economy deliberately? Either way, Project Fear failed

    Berlusconi's come back as philosopher king

    Berlusconi is barred from standing in the next election. But he is mounting a comeback as potential king maker, and then philosopher king. Welcome to Italian politics: you can't keep the old boy down

    Why Northern Ireland won't go south after Brexit

    Project Fear goes into overdrive when it comes to Northern Ireland. But there is no more prospect of a return to the Troubles than there is of the UK sinking into economic depression. Workable solutions are there for the taking. As ever, we need to ignore the scaremongers and build a successful Brexit

    Blame the EU for this airport chaos

    The chaos at some European airports is another example of incompetence and bad faith in Europe, while European airlines and Brussels are agiain showing petty mindedness on aviation policy to punish British travellers for Brexit. They will not succeed in breaking our will

    Ironies and delusions of the anti-Brexit camp

    It is a cruel irony that those who are the most pro EU are the most negative about the nature and likely actions of our EU partners in negotiating a Brexit deal. They are also going to be proved wrong on this as on so much else about Brexit, since a good deal is in everybody's interests
