    Brexit: Different journeys, same end destination

    One constant throughout these past four years has been the failure of the remain and remoan camp to run an effective operation and win enough support.

    It's Time to Get Tough with Euro-Bullies

    Cllr. Dr. Peter Hill argues that the European Union was never going to treat Britain fairly. They got all they wanted in the Withdrawal Agreement with the ease of taking candy from a baby. An organisation that would try to take advantage of our country like that must never be seen as friendly again.

    The EU still wants a superstate

    The Rome Declaration has just been signed and it confirms everything Eurosceptics said about the real intentions of Brussels. It is all about a superstate, after all. The EU has learned nothing and we're so much better off out

    Brexit in court. It's politics stupid

    Disagreeing with the anti-Brexit court cases has nothing to do with disrespect of the legal system. It is opposition to the courts being a playground for the rich to obstruct the democratic process. Still, Tony Blair is in on the anti-Brexit act. So there shuould be a surge in pro-Brexit sentiment

    The UK economy can surge after Brexit

    Even when trade all but ceased with Europe in World War II the British economy surged ahead. The idea the UK will suffer from leaving the EU, whatever deal we strike, is poppycock, and smacks of rump Remain desperation

    PM brings a heavyweight to Brexit negotiations

    Britain's new "Brexit Ambassador" Tim Barrow is a vast improvement on his Remain-friendly predecessor, Ivan Rogers. The chances of Britain honouring the referendum mandate to get Britain out have definitely gone up

    Ignore Remoaners: Regulation after Brexit is no problem

    Remainers made big play about the supposed complications of adjusting regulations after Brexit. In reality, this was just empty scare mongering. We take back control of our laws and then act in our perceived national interest. How's that for a plan?

    The UK should stop negotiating with itself over Brexit

    With Brexit in mind, some people in the UK need to wake up to the reality of how you do well in an auction or a negotiation. You don't tell everyone in advance and, in a team, you don't fight amongst yourselves. We hold many cards. Play then wisely, and we'll do very well

    Project Fear: Britain’s Economic Chuckle Brothers

    Philip Hammond and Mark Carney are Britain's anti-Brexit Chuckle Brothers. These hardline Remoaners got everything wrong, and now they're trying to sabotage our withdrawal. We musn't let them get away with it

    On Brexit, Labour hasn't got a clue

    There is little evidence Labour actually understand the implications of their own policies, which, on Brexit, are in any case all over the place. They are cynical and confused because they can't fully accept Brexit's democtratic mandate. Voters will rightly punish them

    In Europe, the center is not holding

    As Italian PM Renzi quits, from Italy, to France, through Austria and across Europe the center is finding it difficult to hold. While mere anarchy may not yet be being loosed upon the world, only those in denial can doubt that the tectonic plates are shifting

    Brexit: Prosperity, not austerity

    Our deficits are not entirely the product of our membership of the EU. But leaving will help dramatically, and, as with so many things, Brexit gives us the opportunity for a fresh start and a new road to sustained prosperity
