    Greece, money and morality

    If the Greek government were sane it would leave the Eurozone, suspend its membership of the EU, and invite in experts from Hong Kong to produce a monster package of reforms to make it the most open and least corrupt economy in the West. if that's fantasy, the reality is far more improbable

    Vicious EU will let Athens burn for failed Euro dystopia

    As the EU's neo-authoritarian clown in chief Jean-Claude Juncker intimidates Greece for the cheek of consulting the people, it's now clear Brussels will burn Athens to the ground rather than admit their disastrous mistake of creating the dystopian Eurozone

    Grexit is one thing. What if it happened in Italy?

    Polls show that more than half of Italians would vote to leave the single currency. Also, if things go bad, refinancing Greece for two hundred odd billion is one thing, Italy’s debt is more than two trillion. Grexit would be huge, but Itexit would spell catastrophe

    EU wants control over our holiday snaps, amazingly enough

    Astounding as it may sound, the EU is considering proposals which could ban people from taking photos of iconic landmarks, such as Big Ben or the Eiffel Tower, without copyright permission. The real motivation is an oppressive attack on social media

    Lunatic EU president Jean-Claude Juncker trashes Greece at critical moment

    That European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker despises democracy is not a secret. But his lunatic-level attacks on Greece, right at the critical moment, make you wonder whether he and his "elite" friends are on a mission to destroy the EU. Who needs Eurosceptic enemies, when you have EU friends like that?

    The euro versus democracy, Greek style

    What a predictable tragedy the Euro has become. If you want a single currency to work you need a single government to back it, a single demos to decide who rules, and an economic policy which generates prosperity for the many. The Eurozone has none of these, making crisis a permanent feature

    Brussels to Mothers: Get Back to Work!

    As if the EU didn't have other things to worry about -- the potential collapse of the euro being just one of them -- their latest bright idea to alienate Britain is a preposterous and arrogant instruction to do more to get mothers to go to work

    The emerging United States of Euroland

    While David Cameron is doing his best to renegotiate Britain's position within the wider EU, the leading forces in the Euro area are wasting no time at all in pushing further towards their imperial dystopia of a United States of Euroland

    To Brexit or not to Brexit: Framing the question

    The precise question that will appear for the In/Out referendum is one thing. What we now need to do is frame the Brexit issue honestly, something that scaremongering europhiles, in denial about the road to a superstate, doggedly refuse to do

    Greece and Germany in a modern European tragedy

    As Greece says on Friday it believes there will be a solution to the current euro/debt crisis it is fascinating that this crisis shows how lacking in independence both Greece and Germany really are in the modern-day European structures

    Put this up your TTIP! My what?

    The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnerhsip (TTIP) could be a huge bonanza for Brits, continental Europeans and Americans. Free trade obviously makes people better off. So take a wild guess at who wants to stop it all?

    More money for the EU

    Labour will pay to the EU any tax demand that Brussels makes. It's as bad as that. These people will simply never learn

    If Europhile loons like this win the day, BREXIT is certain

    Packed full of contempt and patronising dishonesty, Poland's EU supremo has made an intervention against British interests and membership of the EU that, if typical, guarantees Brexit. UKIP should hire this guy!

    Could UK restore democracy without leaving EU?

    Under the current EU treaties we cannot truly get our democracy back. The real problem is that Brussels is well known for expanding its jurisdiction, by fair means and foul. Many will decide that the best option is just to quit

    EU budget increases reek of a telling hypocrisy

    If David Cameron wants to pursuade Britons he can get a decent renegotiation, perhaps he can explain why his previous boasts to have got the EU budget under control have come to nothing? It's a gravy train, and we've got to get off
