    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....

    An ideal EU? Not likely

    Business for Britain thinks it has a blueprint for Britain inside a reformed EU. But, like David Cameron, they don't understand that it is the whole EU model that needs abolishing. Nothing less will really mean anything

    What would a new UK relationship with the EU look like?

    The idea that we would be isolated, poorer and cut adrift as a nation if we left or radically changed our relationship with the EU is pure nonsense. Consider what an unshackled Britain would actually look like, says John Redwood MP

    Why charlatans and demagogues are flourishing

    The Spanish philosopher José Ortega y Gasset knew a thing or two about the modern world, and the shallow populism that seduces it. Modern Europe should re-read his penetrating analysis on how democracy dies

    The dangerous alchemy of the European Union

    The European project now appears to be defined by the euro which represents probably the biggest single risk to global financial stability in the world today, says Liam Fox MP

    Greek crisis foreshadows new European order

    Far-Left Syriza's victory in Greece could herald the beginning of an even more bureaucratic, state-dominated and anti-democratic European Union than we already have

    The EU/UK relationship is now like a bad marriage

    With the EU, the UK is like the poor husband who can never get anything right for his wife. What is going to happen to this odd couple? After all, however down he feels, the husband isn't so sure about a break up

    This time a real EU train crash may be on its way

    It is widely noted that the EU has turned into a slow motion train crash. But the latest regulatory madness from Brussels over the rail system threatens the risk of a real train crash right here in Britain. It's never going to stop until we get Britain out
