    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

    Brexit Britain and policing Project Fear

    The British Public voted to Get Britain Out of the EU, but this does not mean ending meaningful cooperation on policing and judicial matters with our closest European allies. It's just more Project Fear dishonest scraemongering to say that either we or our European neighbours will not act in our, or their own, best interests after Brexit

    A WTO Brexit is the best of both worlds

    If Britain leaves the EU on WTO terms this does not in fact amount to no deal. WTO is a deal, the one most countires use in international trade. We should go for that, save ourselves the 40 billion, and get Britain out of the EU as soon as possible

    Brexit stirs debate about EU madness across Europe

    Britain’s impending departure from the EU has at the very least stirred up a wave of discussion on a subject largely unknown to the European people. They are suddenly beginning to realise the costs and effects of a corrupt subsidy and tariff regime most thought normal. Brexit will bring much needed perspective to the debate about the EU, which is only just getting started in continental Europe

    Only ignorance stands in way of a real Brexit now

    Yesterday’s debate in the Commons on Brexit was dominated by people who have never run complex supply chains who were unwilling to accept they work fine with non EU as well as with EU parts. The biggest barrier to a real Brexit now is the sheer ignorance of its opponents

    Eurosceptics across Europe watch Brexit own goal

    What makes Brexit interesting to Italians and other Europeans is that the UK team seemed to be without a captain and determinedly kicking towards its own end. Meanwhile, unbeknown to the Brits, the other side is terrified of them; terrified of the domino effect from fans in Europe who might emulate their style, and terrified of losing the 40 billion in ticketing revenue. Come on, let's change tactics, get to the final, and bring it all home

    May's Brexit in name only is a betrayal of the nation

    The Prime Minister, who believes in Brexit in name only, is forcing Britain down a middle-way where we will never truly be free to benefit from the Brexit dividend. No Deal would be a far better deal than this elaborate soft squidgy fudge

    Britain should give Brussels an ultimatum, and mean it

    Time to give Brussels an ultimatum. If they thought it was a simple choice of a Free Trade Agreement or the no deal WTO option, they would be likely to choose the Free Trade Agreement, which is in their best interests. But we must end the dithering, and clearly state we will walk away if they continue to negotiate in bad faith
