    How Britain will prosper outside the EU

    The Stay in the EU campaign tries to frighten people that Brexit would lead to Britain being isolated and sidelined. It's absolute rubbish, and we should say so loudly

    Brussels v Poland: How not to do diplomacy

    There's a right old spat in progress between the EU and Poland, with the Polish Justice Minister flinging Nazi analogies at Brussels. The Eurocrats have gone ballistic, but their rantings against Poland's government were bound to provoke a reaction

    NATO can react to a volatile world -- not the EU

    You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you. We live in a volatile and dangerous world. NATO is our best bet, and the EU is a liability

    Regional identity is another fine mess in the EU

    The EU sought to use regional identities such as in Catalonia and Scotland to weaken unitary member states in a divide and rule policy to strengthen the superstate. But, as ever, it is playing sorceror's apprentice with forces it doesn't understand and can't control

    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

    Greece and Germany in a modern European tragedy

    As Greece says on Friday it believes there will be a solution to the current euro/debt crisis it is fascinating that this crisis shows how lacking in independence both Greece and Germany really are in the modern-day European structures

    Could UK restore democracy without leaving EU?

    Under the current EU treaties we cannot truly get our democracy back. The real problem is that Brussels is well known for expanding its jurisdiction, by fair means and foul. Many will decide that the best option is just to quit

    Drowned migrants, asylum, and European democracy

    Europe’s asylum policies are largely to blame for illegal migrants risking everything to reach Europe. Migrants know that Europe’s asylum rules are gameable, and that all they need to do is get to Europe to be in with a chance. EU immigration ideology is now a deadly disaster

    The relentless march to a more united Europe

    French and German ambitions combine with the ever worsening Greek crisis to confirm that the Euro is driving relentlessly the process of political union for its members. The UK needs to renegotiate and then hold a referendum on EU membership. Only Conservatives can offer that

    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

    Owen Paterson's perceptive speech on Europe

    Owen Paterson, the Conservative former Environment Secretary, has weighed in with an important speech on how Britain needs to regain its sovereignty from the EU. There's now serious momentum for a move away from Brussels

    Caps on EU migrants are illegal. Got that Dave?

    The Great British Public should not fall for Cameron's parlour trick. Any current plans to cap EU migrants will be illegal under EU law and are not deliverable until after successfully severing our ties to Brussels by getting out of the EU

    Why is the USA so much richer than the EU?

    Each person in the USA is on average somewhere between one third and 60 percent better off than the average EU citizen. Why is the EU in the slow lane, and proud of it?
