    Christmas: a time for sharing

    The sharing economy is bringing undreamt of prosperity to millions of people around the world ­ and good service to many millions more. As is usually the case when progress offers great benefits, it is, of course, being bitterly opposed by vested interests who see it as a threat to their hold over consumers

    Calling David Cameron Taurus

    The Government is all bark and no dog, on issues from Europe to terrorism. David Cameron could well be nicknamed Taurus, as he's so full of bull

    Why Nigel Farage is always smiling

    EU's Barroso is formerly of the extreme left, and his Marxist propensity to invert language so that ‘truth’ becomes ‘lies’ and ‘lies’ become’ truth is plain to see. But what he says about no-renegotiation for Britain is actually true, and Nigel Farage knows it

    The Conservative Party has at last rediscovered its soul

    The Conservatives are back. They're on the offensive, back to their core values, and the party's supporters left the conference in confident and fighting mood for the 2015 election

    Cameron's (desperately) big Birmingham moment

    The Tory sexting (non) scandal is a storm in a tea cup. No-one cares about politicians' sex lives any more. The Reckless defection to UKIP is quite another matter and the Tory conference is buzzing with talk about its implications. Do they get it? Judge for yourself

    Labour is lost, but Dave has an England headache too

    English devolution without an English parliament could be the mother of all constitutional messes. Labour is lost in space on all this. But does Cameron really understand what has to be done? He needs to learn from the SNP and UKIP that what people don't like is elite arrogance

    The EU's cynical ruse

    With the EU's latest sly ruse, David Cameron, along with the rest of the political establishment, has been outfoxed by an age-old game of expectation management

    UKIP's wake up call, and Cameron's fatal flaws

    Cameron is too much of an opinion-poll-chasing, cosy insider in deference to the chattering classes. Dumping the principled and able Michael Gove and losing Douglas Carswell via defection to UKIP are two sides of Dave's losing coin. 2015 may not be pretty for the Tories

    Cameron's crumpet and (old) politics as usual

    Once it was "Blair's babes"; now it's "Cameron's crumpet". We're back to gratuitous pre-election politics again. Gove went because he was too good, and the Guardian didn't like him. And who's this Brussels bound Lord Hill fellow?

    Hacking was dreadful; Labour's opportunism pathetic

    The difference between Cameron and Miliband over hacking and cosying up to big media is that Cameron has apologised, while all Ed Miliband sees is another hypocritical opportunity to indulge in his own particular brand of weirdness

    David Cameron's date with defeat in Europe

    Cameron's problem is that he is a closet Europhile, and he is worried that the appointment of Juncker to the top job in the EU will result in his reform proposals being DOA followed by a massive ‘Brexit’ result in the referendum

    A Christian country? No, a conservative one

    The Prime Minister has deployed his Anglican faith to win back traditional voters who have deserted his party. It won't work

    Without a big idea, Cameron will lose

    The Prime Minister can handle the pressure of a crisis. But he has found it more difficult to set out a Conservative vision for Britain

    Cameron's Christianity in a multi-culti Britain

    The letter against David Cameron is just the latest expression of an infantile multi-culturalism that has done terrible damage to social cohesion precisely because it is too weak to create any substantial bonds of identity

    Things are stirring in the EU

    The prospect that the EU’s second largest cash-cow might leave the EU altogether could get many countries to club together and at least give Cameron something to sell Britons so as to stay in the EU
