    Latest EU insanity is in the 'couldn't make it up category'

    It beggars belief that the EU could behave in such a self-destructive fashion. A smash and grab raid for taxpayers' money on the eve of a crucial by-election? But maybe that's because they don't give a toss about Britain anyway. Who knew?

    Why Nigel Farage is always smiling

    EU's Barroso is formerly of the extreme left, and his Marxist propensity to invert language so that ‘truth’ becomes ‘lies’ and ‘lies’ become’ truth is plain to see. But what he says about no-renegotiation for Britain is actually true, and Nigel Farage knows it

    Apres moi, Le Farage

    Experience has proved one thing beyond peradventure. If your idea of politics is to slag-off the opposition by insult and muck-raking, the electorate will punish you for it. UKIP thus wins every time the old political parties and media show their true and fading colours

    How modern liberals created Nigel Farage

    Contemporary liberalism has disdained the loyalties that work as society’s glue. Its failure has allowed populism to dominate politics, and Nigel Farage is the big winner

    Grillo-Farage: 5-Star Independence?

    Grillo and Farage may come from different ends of the political spectrum; they may have different methods of approaching politics. But they do agree on one thing: the smug elite running Europe needs a good kicking

    Nigel Farage: A hero and a winner?

    As Peter Oborne of the Daily Telegraph put it, Nigel Farage was the hero of the recent elections, but David Cameron was the winner. Can Nigel Farage be both in 2015?

    Mainstream Britain still doesn't understand UKIP

    People recoil from the high moral tone adopted by parties that have had members of parliament jailed for fiddling expenses, or have held abominable views on matters such as terrorism or Leftist dictators. But the real point is that a new political era has just begun

    What is the EU's true cost?

    Accurate information about the cost of the UK's membership of the EU is of ever-increasing importance. Unfortunately, the official statistics are opaque, confusing and inconsistent

    Digging at UKIP just digs their own grave

    Mainstream media and politics was cruising for a bruising in "exposing" undesirables in UKIP. Inevitably and marvellously UKIP is now pointing out the crooks and crazies in Lib, Lab and Con

    Farage and The Times

    Does Rupert Murdoch know about his paper's vendetta against the UKIP leader?

    We want an election not a beauty contest

    Nigel Farage could well win in a leaders' debate with the other parties. But political beauty contests like that are not the British way, says Robin Mitchinson

    Annihilation of Nick Clegg a disaster for europhiles

    As if Nick Clegg hadn't made a big enough laughing stock out of the pro-EU case, along comes Michael Heseltine taking europhile buffoonery to an entirely new level

    Putin the latest stick to beat Farage with

    The latest establishment propaganda is to present Farage as some kind of populist fascist whose hero is Putin the neo-Nazi. Frankly, it's tiresome

    Fear and trembling: The UK establishment and the EU

    UKIP represents a new kind of politics whose deeper dynamics established parties and old media appear barely to understand. Farage versus Clegg was a historic event and Cameron and Miliband have no idea how much they blew it by not attending

    Farage blew Clegg out of the water

    The polling and social media evidence showed a decisive victory for Farage. But journalists and politicians committed to the old politics and media have buried their heads in the sand
