    Let's face it. Rio Olympic success is down to Brexit

    It's a Brexit medals fest for Britain in Rio. The next closest European nation, Germany, has a mere 26 medals, not far short of half the British total. And no wonder. How inspired can their athletes be knowing they're doing it all for Jean-Claude Drunker?

    The IFS are completely wrong about Brexit

    The Institute for Fiscal Studies suggests the British economy could lose tens of billions through quitting the EU. They are Remain through and through. It's all sour grapes, and they should look at the facts

    The Euro and complete rubbish

    If Italians lose faith with the status quo -- and just the latest mafia scandal on refuse collection is spiralling -- Beppe Grillo could form the next government. His Five-star Movement has promised a referendum on Italy remaining in the euro. Rubbish could yet secure the demise of the single currency

    Brexit can end managed decline, forge new global Britain

    The British establishment adopted "managed decline" after Suez, viewing the EU as a crutch to sustain us. It was a historic mistake for many reasons. But Brexit means we have a new opportunity. We must seize it

    Patience Wheatcroft's shabby case against democracy

    Baroness Wheatcroft, who wants to trash the results of the June 23 referendum, should just come out and say it: she has joined the neo-authoritarian camp, like so many of her colleagues in Remain

    Don't forget England in the Brexit process

    Brexit is a Union matter and has to proceed as such. Other matters like the financial settlement within the UK are as much English as Scottish issues. England still needs more recognition in our democratic structure, and Scottish separatism hasn't been boosted by Brexit anyway

    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
