    Migration strikes at core of EU's existential crisis

    When some writers have said that immigration is an existential matter for Europe, they are not exaggerating. The EU has to decide whether it is a loose association of independent states, or an ever closer union of the likeminded. Soon, it must choose

    A nail in the coffin of Brexit-phobic House of Lords

    Despite their disgraceful attempts to do so, the Lords won't stop Brexit. But in shamelessly attempting to thwart the democratic will, they have achieved something: the British people are now alive to the necessity to scrap this corrupt institution and replace it with something better

    US Ambassador hails benefits of Brexit

    Where are we on the road to Brexit? We have passed legislation to ensure the UK Parliament and courts take back control the day we leave the EU, and our departure is valid in international law. The world is rallying to Brexit's benefits as the words of encouragement from the US Ambassador show. Now let's just get on with it

    Inconvenient truths about Italy's migrant problem

    There is a murky truth about the way NGOs have been working with people traffickers to help migrants get into Europe. That's not the story the mainstream media is telling you about Italy and migration

    Come on Mrs May, outline the great benefits of Brexit

    From the boost to GDP we get by deploying our budget contributions to Brussels in the domestic economy, through a fairer migration policy, to a whole new global agenda, the Prime Minister needs to steel up and wise up, and tell the public about all the great things we can do with Brexit

    Westminster's rebellion against the people

    The majority of Britain voted twice – in the 2016 EU Referendum and the 2017 General Election – to Get Britain Out of the Single Market and the Customs Union, and the job of our parliamentary representatives is to fulfil the public’s wishes, not climb on their high horses and refuse to come down. We must get Britain out as soon as humanly possible

    Is the Commons about to destroy Brexit?

    With Labour's position on the Brexit vote next week utterly shambolic, opportunistic, and incoherent, and the unelected (and corrupt) Lords lacking all legitimacy, it is up to members of parliament to show decency, respect democracy, and allow for the Brexit people voted for

    Crunch time for Brexit: Time to take back control

    Will the Commons take back control, or will it seek to perpetuate the Puppet Parliament we have lived with for years? Does it understand the democratic mandate of the Referendum and the last election, or does it think the EU and its most fanatic supporters are right to ignore such votes? We must vote for a real Brexit now

    May needs vision to deliver Brexit the people voted for

    Theresa May needs to get out of the Brexit-fudging echo chamber of her weak kneed, status quo friendly colleagues, and show real leadership to deliver the Brexit the people so clearly voted for

    How Brexit can give Britain a stronger economy

    The dividend we will reap from not paying into the EU budget would provide a useful stimulus to economic growth, one of the many benefits of Brexit. We must not be bullied, and must leave the EU as fast as possible, with no deal if that is necessary

    The EU's coup in Italy; a neo-authoritarian fiasco

    This is the ghastly, undemocratic face of the EU. Just as they told countries to vote again when they had got their referendums "wrong", just as they got rid of the elected Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi in 2011, now they have forbidden the chosen Italian finance minister because he is critical of the euro. Welcome to the EU's neo-authoritarian disaster in the making

    Italy will be the EU's biggest challenge after Brexit

    The EU has expanded too far and is too inflexible. If there is no change of course, and Italy is its first big challenge after Brexit, the EU may risk unravelling

    BREXIT: This is how to negotiate with Brussels

    I have never understood why so many senior officials think we need to give in each time to the EU. Cameron's mistake was he asked for too little and settled for even less. Ultimately, we need to tell Brussels we are prepared for No Deal. Only then will they be serious

    Brexit means Brexit: Mrs May, words are not enough

    Theresa May has already uttered the important words -- Brexit means Brexit. Now she needs the courage to back them up with actions, and that means putting an end to the nonsense about the customs union. It's all getting tiresome and boring. Let's just get Britain out

    The EU's superstate budget we won't be part of

    We were told there would be no EU army, yet work continues apace to increase the EU’s role in member states' defence. The proposed new EU budget is designed to create a United States of Europe. It will fail, but it's a good thing Britain won't be around when it all goes up in flames
