    Trade deal offers show post-Brexit world is our oyster

    At least 35 countries have expressed an interest in a free trade deal with Brexit Britain, including the United States, Japan, and Australia. Brexit is going to be a bonanza. So drop the pessimism, and get behind it

    BREXIT: The vital importance of the Great Repeal Bill

    The Great Repeal Bill, also known as The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, is a vital step in recovering Britain's sovereignty. Opportunists and anti-democratic opponents of Brexit are therefore trying to stop it in its tracks. They must not succeed

    Brexit, the NHS, and the English language

    Foreign doctors are a massive bonus to the NHS. What is dangerous and unfair to all concerned are EU migration rules which mean a European doctor who speaks poor English is given easy access to working in the NHS while a Nigerian doctor who speaks fluent English has a dozen hoops to jump through. Brexit will cure this illness

    Nobody wants you back Tony

    Tony Blair has spent so much time snuggling up to dictators since leaving office that he has forgotten what democracy means. His arrogant and clumsy attempts to overturn Brexit will only further discredit the anti-democratic Remain campaign. They're welcome to Toxic Tony, and they deserve him

    France going Eurosceptic regardless of election result

    Macron will win the French elections only because he is not Marine Le Pen. But euroscepticism is surging in France as evidenced by the fact 46% in the first round voted for fiercely eurosceptic candidates. That reality will endure after Sunday's presidential run off

    Europe needs our co-operation on defence

    The hypocrisy of denouncing Britain for daring to raise the prospect of no Brexit deal, while taking every ludicrous ultimatum from the EU as entirely natural and justified, needs to be challenged. Defence is an example where we are perfectly ready to play fair, but not at any price

    Sturgeon's self-defeating referendum opportunism

    The UK single market is far more important to the Scottish economy than the EU single market. Nicola Sturgeon's (unworkable) plan to leave the former for the latter shows her up as an opportunist who will put personal and ideological ambitions above Scotland's interests

    Everyone's coming round to Brexit

    It seems strange to recall that the House of Commons was once thought to be a major obstacle to Brexit. But as the Notification for Withdrawal Bill breezed through parliament yesterday we are reminded that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Rejoice. Brexit is on track, and it will be a great success

    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

    Project Fear Is being discredited In real time

    The Project Fear EU Remain camp is being humiliated in real time. Their claims to competence have been flushed down the toilet as the British economy powers ahead. They need to grow up, we need to ignore them, and all of us should get Britain out of the EU as soon as possible
