    Neo-authoritarians push for new Brexit referendum

    The dreary spectacle of a neo-authoritarian insurgency will remain long after Brexit is done and dusted. Those calling for a second referendum will fail. But these enemies of democracy will be with us for a long time to come

    Slippery Brussels seeking EU army by the back door

    Seizing control of armed forces from the nation state is essential to the creation of a federal super-state. The delusional neo-imperialists in Brussels will lose badly on this when Britain quits the EU, but we should actively scupper its chances anyway because slippery Brussels is trying to get us in by the back door

    Telling it like it is to Lord Adonis on Brexit

    As he gears up for a debate with Lord Adonis, one of the fiercest rejectionists regarding Britain's democratic decision to leave the EU, John Redwood MP reminds him that democracy can be disappointing when you're on the losing side, but true democrats get over it and respect the result

    Stop panicking about John Bolton

    John Bolton is an accomplished, very smart person with principled, hawkish instincts on foreign and defense policy. He's wrong about the 2003 invasion of Iraq, but liberal hysteria against him is just that. Oh, and please leave out the comments about his mustache

    Britain's civil service as an anti-Brexit fifth column?

    Talk of fifth columns can often be hyperbolic. But there is a real concern about institutional bias against Brexit in Britain's civil service. The public has a right to expect its taxpayer funded servants observe strict neutrality, and do not thwart the will of the people by indulging in the fantasies of Project Fear

    EU's chaotic migrant policies wrecking Italian serenity

    Serenity is a quality you rightly expect in small Italian towns. But the world is as it is, and Europe's migrant crisis is never far from affecting the day to day life of ordinary people, something Europe's insulated political classes seem strangely unaware of

    Britain already showing Brexit foreign policy benefits

    The Skripal case showed that Britain could rally a gloabl coalition without EU help. The EU was initially reluctant, and support from member states remains patchy. This shows global Britain is the right way to go, more proof that Brexit was the right decision and that the EU is a sinking ship

    EU frets as Italian democracy empowers Eurosceptics

    Both parties in what appears to be Italy's emerging coalition government rightly believe the Euro has been good for Germany and bad for Italy. It won't be a supercharged Eurosceptic onslaught, but rather a chipping away at the EU edifice which one day is destined to fall

    The EU is itself a barrier to trade. We're better off out

    The Remain camp is confused on so many issues, not least trade where the EU is a barrier to prosperity for Britain, and is the root cause of the growing friction with the US. Don't blame Brexit or Trump. Blame Brussels for its flagrant hypocrisy

    Stop this shameful capitulation to the EU on fisheries

    The transition deal announced between Britain and the EU is very bad news for UK fishermen, as it means the EU could decimate our fishing industry during the transitional period. The government needs to understand that appeasement never works. We should urgently set down much tougher terms and be prepared to walk away without a deal

    EU fiddles as Rome burns

    As talks continue to form a eurosceptic government in Italy, delusional Eurocrats plan ever deeper integration in Brussels. Britons looking on, can be grateful they will soon no longer be party to this fiasco

    Elites vs People? Good globalism vs bad globalism

    Globalism means different things to different people. Good globalism is about expanding trade and shared experiences. Bad globalism is about increasing the power of corrupt institutions like the UN. We need to be clear that free trade is the way to go, and the big government UN route is a cause of poverty and disenchantment

    EU trade hypocrisy: Brexit can't come soon enough

    It's curious the EU claims to be scandalised by Trump threatening a 10% tariff on German cars into the US, when the EU itself imposes just such a 10% tariff on US cars into the EU. Inside the EU, Britain also can't exempt itself from Trump's steel tarrifs. This is the kind of nonsense we will be free of. Brexit can't come soon enough

    Anti-Trump hysteria must not block UK-US trade deal

    Trump Derangement Syndrome has taken hold of the Labour Party, the Foreign Office, and, of course, the Remain camp. It must not get in the way of a free trade deal with America which, despite the scaremongering, is right on track, along with the many other benefits Brexit will bring

    Mainstream media never plays fair on Brexit

    The mainstream media simply will not give up on its anti-Brexit bias. John Redwood MP explains precisely how the bias manifests itself, right from the moment they call to decide whether to have you on the show. This is unacceptable, and it must stop
