    Santa won't visit the EU, but a eurosceptic Pope did

    Santa is not coming down the chimney for the EU. But this year, a eurosceptic-sounding Pope did. He had some sobering words. Let's hope 2015 is the year we can get Britain out

    More outrageous EU demands

    Whenever Eurocrats realise their ambitious spending commitments cannot be fulfilled, they casually raid Britain’s coffers while our political classes do little more than fake outrage and horror. It will only stop of we get Britain out

    Fishy EU goes fishing at Britain's expense

    The UK's fishing industry is central to our national identity, and puts food on the table for millions. But Brussels wants to destroy it, and is doing a good job of doing so. Yet another reason to get Britain out of the EU as soon as possible

    Cameron’s EU speech: Wishful thinking and deception

    Cameron, as we saw in Friday's speech, exemplifies much of what is wrong with British politics: the utter lack of conviction. Knee-jerk reactions and smoke-and-mirrors fool no one. Rather than persisting in the fantasy of a reformed EU, we must Get Britain Out

    The EU: Watering a dead tree

    Europe’s economy is still on its knees, but the EU's political classes have learned nothing from their self-inflicted folly. If your house has been burned down, the last thing to do is to mistake the arsonists for the firemen. The most pragmatic move is to Get Britain Out

    There is no short-term fix for the EU

    The end of Europe’s economic woes is nowhere in sight. The EU is not compatible with democracy as we understand it. There is a revolution swelling against Brussels and all it stands for. We need a clean break. There are no quick fixes, whatever John Major thinks

    Another EU rip-off

    While the EU is trying to rip Britain off, yet again, thousands of Eurocrats earn more than most heads of government. There is vast waste on much more besides. Britain has simply got to leave

    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

    The EU wants to destroy the City

    As well as pure envy at our extraordinary success, EU attacks on the City are inspired by long-standing hostility to the "Anglo-American" model. In contrast to EU statism, that model has the shocking temerity to actually work

    Federal Europe is the future and the UK has no part in it

    The EU is overseeing the wholesale demolition of democracy across the continent. Our membership of the EU has rendered Westminster a vassal of Brussels instead of a servant of the people

    EU losing favour, losing ground, losing credibility

    The EU as an institution has a life of its own and merely protesting to its human representatives will do nothing to change the direction of the leviathan

    True democrats will vote for the EU referendum bill

    Popular will must shape Britain’s destiny, or the debate will rage on unabated. This is why Miliband and Clegg’s dithering is a mistake
