    The EU: Watering a dead tree

    Europe’s economy is still on its knees, but the EU's political classes have learned nothing from their self-inflicted folly. If your house has been burned down, the last thing to do is to mistake the arsonists for the firemen. The most pragmatic move is to Get Britain Out

    No Papal bull for the Eurocrats

    Belief in a progressive, kaleidoscopic multi-cultural society in which numerous lifestyles are promoted along with diverse ethnic cultures has seized the commanding heights of the EU. The Pope's moral clarity does not sit well with the Eurocrats

    Owen Paterson's perceptive speech on Europe

    Owen Paterson, the Conservative former Environment Secretary, has weighed in with an important speech on how Britain needs to regain its sovereignty from the EU. There's now serious momentum for a move away from Brussels

    There is no short-term fix for the EU

    The end of Europe’s economic woes is nowhere in sight. The EU is not compatible with democracy as we understand it. There is a revolution swelling against Brussels and all it stands for. We need a clean break. There are no quick fixes, whatever John Major thinks

    EU puff, smoke, and mirrors

    If we really want to stop being taxed by the EU for being successful, the only answer is to Get Britain Out. The sums of money arbitrarily being demanded could be put to far better use than subsidising eurozone economic incompetence

    John Major (rightly) bangs on about Europe

    Our current EU membership does not just pose a problem over the pace of migration. It is bad for business, bad for living standards and bad for democracy. All these things need to be debated and addressed in a new relationship with the rest of the EU

    Why does the CBI oppose democracy over the EU?

    The CBI opposes a referendum on our EU membership. This is not only anti-democratic it is against the wishes of most businesses and the British people. What are europhiles so afraid of?

    Eurozone ‘biggest risk to global economic stability’ says former UK Defence Minister

    It is not the Eurosceptics who are out of step but those with a fossilised view of how Europe should be, formed in the 1950s and locked in aspic since, says Liam Fox MP

    European Arrest Warrant? Let's arrest Brussels instead

    The European Arrest Warrant could have you extradited on trumped up charges of stealing a wheelbarrow or an apple -- it's happened. Britain should get out of it and arrest Brussels instead

    Time to hold the EU to account

    For the 19th year in a row, auditors have failed to sign off the EU's accounts. What on earth is Britain doing staying part of this farce? Wouldn't it be better to just get Britain out?

    Benefits, immigration, and the EU

    The original idea of free movement was the free movement of workers, not the free movement of benefit seekers. Britain is being ripped off and, this time, it's partly our fault for being mugs

    Don't discount the EU's suicidal tendencies

    Fudging, papering over the cracks, the EU seems capable of any kind of cover up to ensure no one has to confront the crisis. But the whole edifice is looking pretty shaky

    Ditch anti-democratic Lib Dems for EU referendum

    Calling Nick Clegg and his band of wet europhiles, Liberal Democrats, is like calling the British National Party the Racial Harmony Party. Their anti-democratic stance over the EU tells you everything you need to know about them

    Another EU rip-off

    While the EU is trying to rip Britain off, yet again, thousands of Eurocrats earn more than most heads of government. There is vast waste on much more besides. Britain has simply got to leave

    Latest EU insanity is in the 'couldn't make it up category'

    It beggars belief that the EU could behave in such a self-destructive fashion. A smash and grab raid for taxpayers' money on the eve of a crucial by-election? But maybe that's because they don't give a toss about Britain anyway. Who knew?
