    Super Mario – an Italian in Europe

    ECB boss Mario Draghi’s QE might work, it might not, but his legacy seems certain. If the euro survives Super Mario will be seen as one of its saviours. So, will it work?

    Latest EU madness threatens our NHS

    Last week the Commons discussed the proposed EU-US free trade agreement, named the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). One of the most important aspects was how the Treaty would impact the NHS. Brussels whacks Britain yet again, and UKIP won't stand for it. Let's get Britain out

    The destructive power of the Euro grows

    The delay in loosening money and the refusal to break up the Eurozone and have economic policies which work better is dragging Euroland back into low growth and recession, and is generating mass unemployment. Another fine mess courtesy of European integration

    EU in latest disastrous move to destroy small businesses

    Yet again, the European Union has blundered into legislation which will make life for small businesses a nightmare. This time it's the turn of online business to be clobbered, and then strangled in growth and innovation destroying red tape. We've got to get Britain out

    Euro destroying traditional political parties in Europe

    The euro is breaking apart the traditional party system across its member states. Euro enthusiasts always said it was a political as well as an economic project. Too true. It's a political, as well as an economic, disaster

    Cameron bars eurosceptic ministers from referendum

    David Cameron's move to block ministers in a future Conservative government from campaigning to quit the EU is a sign of weakness. Still, when the time comes, they must retain the courage to say the emperor has no clothes

    Britain's complicated relationship with Europe

    Against the whole run of our past policy and experiences over centuries, since the 60s the UK establishment, with some notable exceptions, has decided to allow and actively promote a new European hegemon to emerge called the European Union. It's a very dangerous experiment

    A 2015 new deal for England in UK, and UK in EU

    2015 should be the year when the ball starts rolling for England to get a proper deal within the UK and the UK to get a radically different relationship with the EU. A heck of a lot rides on the general election. We'd better get it right

    Why 2015 should be a great year for enemies of the West

    The essence of Barack Obama's weakness is that he does not have the mental capacity to deal with the world's complexities. The West's opponents know this and are likely to strike out further before he leaves office and is replaced by someone more competent

    Euro disaster rolls on, as the "stupid club" expands

    The euro is the stupidest idea in international political economy since the end of the Cold War. It has proved immensly destructive. Yet Europe's political elites doggedly refuse to face reality, and the "stupid club" continues to expand

    Santa won't visit the EU, but a eurosceptic Pope did

    Santa is not coming down the chimney for the EU. But this year, a eurosceptic-sounding Pope did. He had some sobering words. Let's hope 2015 is the year we can get Britain out

    Starting a new debate on UK's strategic interests

    John Redwood MP is as open minded a politician as it gets. He wants to start a debate on Britain's real strategic interests. Interested in the new politics? Join in and take up John's challenge

    The Europhile gerontocracy: Deluded Ken Clarke accuses Eurosceptics of "silly" arguments

    Ken Clarke and his Europhile friends are making the same mistake as the geriatric leaders of the Soviet Union as it approached its demise. They've started to believe their own propaganda about their opponents being madmen. Well, bring it on Ken. Let's see how sane you look under the scrutiny of serious debate

    Cameron’s worthless 11th hour EU “Reform” con

    David Cameron's leaked strategy for reforming Britain's relationship with the EU confirms he simply cannot be trusted to get a real deal. The only way of truly reforming our relationship is to get Britain out of the EU altogether. The rest is smoke and mirrors

    More outrageous EU demands

    Whenever Eurocrats realise their ambitious spending commitments cannot be fulfilled, they casually raid Britain’s coffers while our political classes do little more than fake outrage and horror. It will only stop of we get Britain out
