    Crazy EU Directive attacks UK home owners

    The latest crazy move from Brussels will cost many mortgage holders thousands. It's another piece of crushing evidence that the only way Britain can get a fair deal is by quitting the EU as soon as humanly possible

    Drowned migrants, asylum, and European democracy

    Europe’s asylum policies are largely to blame for illegal migrants risking everything to reach Europe. Migrants know that Europe’s asylum rules are gameable, and that all they need to do is get to Europe to be in with a chance. EU immigration ideology is now a deadly disaster

    Juncker drops EU renegotiation bombshell on Cameron

    It shouldn't really surprise anyone, but it's a bombshell for David Cameron in the middle of the election campaign. Unelected EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker makes clear no treaty changes are even possible until 2019 -- two years after the planned referendum. Serious EU renegotiation has now been flatly ruled out

    Of UKIP, Tories and the EU's tampon tax

    Astoundingly, but tellingly, the male dominated EU bureaucracy thinks of tampons as a luxury item. In any event, the famous tampon tax can't be abolished unless we quit the EU, which we should do as soon as possible

    EU to switch off British film Industry

    The fanatics in the European Commission now have their sights set on the UK television, film and music industries. They want to destroy them in the name of creating a pan-European identity. Same game, different day. We've got to get Britain out of the EU as soon as possible

    The relentless march to a more united Europe

    French and German ambitions combine with the ever worsening Greek crisis to confirm that the Euro is driving relentlessly the process of political union for its members. The UK needs to renegotiate and then hold a referendum on EU membership. Only Conservatives can offer that

    Juncker's programme to demolish Britain

    The EU sees every crisis as an opportunity to advance their main aim -- a United States of Europe. Jean-Claude Juncker's so-called Work Programme is just another hypocritical plan to abolish sovereignty. We need to get Britain out as soon as possible

    EU presses our cider producers

    If Brussels wanted to show further evidence of its arrogance and contempt for Britain, it couldn't have thought up a dafter scheme than to try and destroy our rights to help our small cider makers. We must get Britain out of the EU, and right now stop this unfolding disaster

    Leaving EU won’t crash the car industry, just Europhile pride

    One of the biggest scares raised by the Europhiles is that big business in general and the car industry in particular would quit Britain if we quit the EU. Even some of the major car companies have been at it. But it won't stand up to scrutiny. Why leave prospering Britain for the crisis-ridden Eurozone?

    An EU Army: a tragedy for our armed forces

    It becomes ever clearer why our armed forces are being cut to the bone. If we are heading to a federal Europe, we are going to get a European defence force, however useless it may be. Our only option is to get Britain out of the EU before it's too late

    The cost to Britain of being in the EU just keeps rising

    The UK remains the second biggest net contributor to the EU after Germany. Despite promises for a cut in Britain's contributions, we're being punished for economic success and we're paying more and more. Will it ever end?

    Putin is a nightmare, but the EU is making matters worse

    The brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov reminds us of just how different British and Russian political values are. This, however, does not mean we should allow the EU to stir up geopolitical and other problems we just don't need. Britain would be far better making its own Russia policy, not being a slave to Brussels

    Why austerity policies may not work in the Eurozone

    If you wish to see a true austerity policy then look at Greece. They have had major cuts in public spending, major cash reductions in wages and salaries, major job losses, and mass unemployment. It just seems to go with being in the Euro

    EU crisis: Mediterranean Game of Thrones

    The real story of Greece's talks with the EU on austerity is of a massive climbdown by the supposedly anti-austerity Syriza. In this game of thrones the Germans have outgamed the Greeks, and will do the same to Spain, all because of their addiction to the euro

    British government stifles EU debate. Frit?

    The reasons the government is giving for blanking out debate on the EU in the run-up to the general election are frankly absurd. Why are they running away from this huge issue? Maggie had a word: Frit....
