    Has the Troika destroyed Greece?

    In recent days and weeks, we have seen the financial and political elite of Europe humiliate Greece. The country is being destroyed before our eyes. The Greeks feel trapped, with nowhere else to go. But Britain is not trapped, and we must get out of the EU before it's too late

    Obama gets Europe wrong again. Why doesn't he allow free immigration from Mexico and Cuba then?

    Barack Obama's lectures to Britain on the EU beggar belief. Ok, Barack. How about you have unlimited immigration from Mexico and Cuba, and while you're at it let them make your laws, while you ditch the American Constitution. Fair's fair after all

    Declining EU is overrated as a trading power

    Trade figures show we do more and more business outside the EU, which, for Britain, is a declining asset. Despite what we are being told by the mainstream media, and a political establishment intoxicated by visions of a federal Europe, the EU is not the future. It is the past

    A wild ride to political union if we stay in the present EU

    Predictably, the BBC is smothering a vital EU policy document pushing for a United States of Europe. Our democracy is again under assault from Brussels, and the government needs to break the silence and explain how we are going to resist

    Amid Eurozone crisis, Spanish town makes siesta compulsory

    With overall unemployment at just under 25 percent, and much concern about bureaucratic impediments to business, a Spanish town has legislated in favour of afternoon siestas, effectively encouraging people to go to sleep between 2 and 5 every workday afternoon

    EU tyranny finally crushes the birthplace of democracy

    The big lesson the EU has "learned" from the Greek crisis is that the democratic will of the people must be suppressed even further. As Brussels crushes democracy in its birthplace, the seeds of a neo-authoritarian superstate have been definitevely sown

    Of Euro Merkel and German Merkel

    Angela Merkel is locked in a kind of political-psychological conflict. There's Euro Merkel, with all the false idealism that entails, and there's German Merkel who has had enough of funding a failed on-size fits all project regarding Greece. What's really missing here is sanity and common sense

    UK's success means EU contributions rise by over £3 billion

    It is clear the EU has very little interest in David Cameron’s renegotiation process, as they are far more concerned with saving the Eurozone. Meanwhile, Brussels keeps punishing Britain for its economic success, demanding soaring contributions. It's time to get Britain out

    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
