    No, the EU hasn't kept the peace in Europe since WWII

    A quick survey of the historical facts makes a nonsense of the widely touted claim the EU has kept the peace in Europe since WWII. It is only since 2004, just 14 years ago, that the majority of European states were even members of the EU. Peace has been preserved by the US presence in Europe and NATO, the rest is Europhile fantasy land

    Corbyn's Labour Party is a threat to Brexit

    The Labour Party is caught between snobbish anti-democratic Remainers and opportunistic Marxists who don't like the EU but are playing a shabby political game at the expense of British voters. The net result is that Labour can't be trusted on Brexit. Their cynical exploits must be exposed

    Bring down the Lords if they bring down Brexit

    Brexit, above all, is about reasserting democracy. The anti-democratic posturing in the House of Lords by unelected cronies reminds us radical reform, or even abolition of this outdated relic, may have to be another milestone on the road to reestablishing the sovereignty of the British people

    US View: UK has a stronger Brexit hand than it thinks

    The EU is terrified that an independent UK will become more market-friendly and thus put competitive pressure on its member states. It is also horrified at losing EU contributions. Theresa May needs to understand she has the upper hand, and stop behaving like a weakling against Eurocrats who genuinely have a lot to fear

    Fake news that EU single market boosted UK growth

    Those who seem to think leaving the single market will cause growth to slow need to explain why there was no visible boost to growth when we joined. Project Fear has its alter ego -- Project Fantasy about benefits of EU membership that never actually materialised

    The EU’s doomed plot to halt a real Brexit

    The EU now appears to be aiming to try and keep us within a Single Market-like state, as a de facto dependent vassal, continuing to pay vast sums of money into their ever-inflating, unaccountable budget. This cannot be allowed. We must get Britain out of the EU asap. Out means Out

    No Brexit deal is still better than a bad Brexit deal

    It remains the case that no deal with the EU is far better than a bad deal. And we should be wary of prolonged transitional agreements. If we can't secure a good deal in 2017 and 2018 it won't be easier in 2020. We just need to Brexit as soon as possible

    Small business bonanza after Brexit

    The Great British Public is overflowing with entrepreneurial ideas. But currently such potential is hindered by laws made by unelected EU officials who cannot be removed by the UK electorate. Let's get Britain out asap, cut the red tape, and build a more dynamic economy

    Pound rises against dollar as Brexit fears recede

    The pound has returned to levels seen before the 2016 referendum against the dollar in yet further evidence that overblown market fears about Brexit are receding fast and doom mongering about the economy is belied by robust economic data

    EU playing dirty in Brexit talks

    The Eurocrats are predictably playing dirty amid Brexit talks, trying to scare British business. It is vital we Get Britain Out of the undemocratic and malicious European Union. These grubby tactics only serve to further vindicate the British decision to leave

    Europe's democracy problem

    No wonder there is a disconnect between government and the governed. European electoral systems are too remote from the people, and this suits Brussels just fine. There's little likelihood of change. Europe has given up on democracy

    EU is part of the NHS problem

    The NHS is now having to cope with around 3,000 additional people turning up to A&E every single day since last year. This is in so small measure due to massive uncontrolled EU migration. Leaving the EU is a great idea for many reasons, but cutting the strain on the NHS is a big one

    The shallow, failed forecasters of Project Fear

    Mainstream media love to report negative views about Brexit and the economy. But the reality is that their predictions have been an embarrassing failure. Take a look at John Redwood MP's list

    The good, the bad, and the ugly in 2018

    Proper welfare reform in the US and the collapse of the regime in Venezuala are much to be hoped for in 2018. To be feared are a bad Brexit, due to EU intransigence, a Chinese bubble, and much else. It all depends on whether free markets and common sense win the day

    Remain establishment withholds Euro disaster info

    What a surprise. The release of government documents includes delays to the release of European Exchange Rate Mechanism papers. The ERM, all done in the name of European integration, was the kind of economic disaster Brexit has not been. No wonder the Remain establishment is so shy about the truth
