    No to an "Emergency Brake" on EU migration

    Brussels and British diplomats seem to be trying to cook up a plan for us to remain in the single market via a temporary "emergency brake" we can apply on migration. That's not what we voted for. We must reject the idea, and respect the referendum

    Free movement and Brexit

    Post Brexit, the way to control numbers will be through a work permit system with quotas for skilled and qualified people we want, adapted to our needs. There is no need to stop people coming here as visitors or to invest and set up businesses. Yet again, Brexit is going to be perfectly smooth, defying all the scare stories

    Article 50 and the Brexit process explained

    Article 50 and the European Communities Act 1972 need some explaining. What does not need explanation is, "Brexit means Brexit". We must hold Theresa May to her word

    May's first test. Hit EU bigots like Tusk hard, real hard

    Hard-line neo-authoritarian Donald Tusk, European Council President, has said he wants to punish Britain for having the temerity to vote to leave the EU. Let's fight back. Ban this bigot, and demand his dismissal now

    Good luck Theresa May. Here's your existential challenge

    Good luck to Britain's new Prime Minister. Theresa May got her job on merit. No pseudo-feminism of the Left. Now she must govern on principle. Here are 2, key first steps to show she means business about Brexit. It's existential Theresa. Just do it

    Let's get cracking on Brexit: borders and money first

    The negotiation needs to start from the proposition that we are taking back control of our borders and money. These should not be in contention. The only thing the UK would like is continued tariff free trade. How's that for a plan?

    Obama slaps Remain, says Brexit will be orderly

    Humiliated, cynical, rump Remain has a certain power to spook confidence. But only for a short while. It's amazing how little of their scaremongering has come true. Obama says, in a slap in the face to Remain, Brexit will be an "orderly transition". And so it will

    Lying Remain camp responsible for eruption of racism

    The entire Remain campaign was based on a pack of lies. Most of the scares have already been exposed. But by haunting immigrants with fears of being deported, and thus whipping up race-based hysteria, they have one last card to play in their shameful effort to smash the democratic will of the people

    A brief Brexit blueprint

    It is doubtful Remainers would have shown any decency to Brexiteers if they had won. But we must not stoop to their level. A solid plan for Brexit must be inclusive of all Britons' views. Here's how, says Matthew Ellery from Get Britain Out

    What's Remain on about? Of course Brexit has a plan

    The Europhiles' charge of the day is that Brexiteers don't have a plan. But we do -- to leave the EU. There is only one substantive question: remain in the single market, or go for a free trade deal. The rest, for both sides, is just tactics. Remain's argument is, once again, specious

    A Smooth Brexit: Project Fear becomes Project Fail

    The shocking campaign of dishonesty known as Project Fear has crashed along with the credibility of its proponents. The FTSE is soaring, and latest data show alleged pre-Brexit damage to the economy just didn't happen

    Remain's hatred and vitriol following Brexit vote

    Britain is fast becoming a frightening place, as the vicious prejudices of a hate-filled and anti-democratic EU Remain camp gush forth

    Anti-democratic hysteria gripping failed Remain camp

    UPDATE BELOW: At the 2016 referendum in Britain, established opinion did not get the rubber stamp it was looking for, and felt it was entitled to. And they're mightily pissed off about it. Their ugly, anti-democratic colours are now shining through

    Nine key takeaways from Brexit

    Margaret Thatcher will be smiling down at the good sense of the British voter. The UK has voted to leave a sinking ship. The future is now bright, and Britons should seize the moment, says Dan Mitchell at the Cato Institute in Washington

    INSTANT VIEW: BREXIT wins, democracy wins. Cameron, Osborne, Carney must now resign

    Leading figures in UK establishment led one of the most disgraceful scare campaigns in British political history. It failed. Cameron, Osborne, and Bank of England's Carney must resign immediately. Boris Johnson must take over as PM. We now need a new start to manage Brexit, and we need cool heads to prevail across the board
