    Brexit dividend if we take back regulatory control

    Excessive EU-mandated red tape has made our economy less productive and less competitive. While we will retain sensible regulations that ensure good standards, Brexit will allow us to save billions of pounds a year, and will be a particular boon to the engine of our economy -- small business. Let's reap that Brexit dividend!

    Back to reality: UK defence after Brexit

    While EU fanatics remain mired in the delusion that the EU has preserved peace in Europe, we must use our influence after Brexit to reinvigorate support for NATO, the true guarantor of peace and stability on the European continent

    Where should the UK go in future Brexit negotiations?

    The post-election Brexit negotiations with Brussels will be vital for our nation so we can decide the path we will follow for the coming decades. We can set an ambitious approach to negotiations which will allow us freedom from the EU in all forms, or we can remain shackled to the EU with both Labour and the Liberal Democrats

    Nigel Farage must do the right thing to secure Brexit

    Nigel Farage needs to see the real picture. With the Brexit Party still standing in various vital Tory target seats in the North, Wales and in SNP-Conservative marginals in Scotland, Remainers may simply cling on to control in Brexit-voting areas with neither the Tories nor the Brexit Party gaining enough support to oust them. This could yet cost us a Brexit supporting majority in Parliament

    Flipping MPs! Why can't we get rid of them?

    If we want to restore trust in democracy, we cannot allow the kind of antics we have seen by Remain MPs to continue. If our elected representatives change party, they should be required to face a by-election

    Supreme Court takes over to stop Brexit

    The neo-authoritarian Remain camp is not content to trample on democracy, it is now encroaching on the rule of law itself. The Supreme Court has become a political tool for those opposed to Brexit. This shabby new strategy must not succeed

    EU has more to fear than UK from No Deal

    The fantasists in Brussels will not personally pay a price for the negative fall out from No Deal. But German, French, and other citiziens and businesses certainly would. It is time the EU woke up to the fact that No Deal would hurt them more than us

    Project Fear: Predictions vs Reality

    Project Fear is a complete laughing stock. Barely a day ges by without new evidence that Britain is prospering, and attracting huge waves of investment, as we head out of the EU. Let's just do it without delay

    A WTO Brexit isn’t really No Deal

    With the seemingly inevitable victory of Boris Johnson in this Conservative Leadership race and the scrutiny which is placed upon him, the UK is slowly able to peel back the layers of ‘Project Fear’ to finally get to grips with the opportunities and possibilities presented by a WTO Brexit. Let's go for it

    MPs are ignoring the sell-out of our military to the EU

    European common defence, and specifically the creation of a European military, are not about the noble aim of protecting our neighbourhood, they are about driving through a federalist vision of Europe that the people, especially the British people, do not want, and would be less secure for having

    Brexit delays could force UK into EU army

    The EU is a failing superstate, destined for a slow but sure collapse. However, Brussels is mired in delusion, and nothing is more illustrative of that than their ambition for a European army they want Britain to be part of

    Delaying Brexit plays into EU's anti-democratic hands

    The EU has a sordid track record of anti-democratic practices in France, the Netherlands, Ireland, and elsewhere. Extending Brexit would simply play into their anti-democratic hands

    A WTO Brexit is Britain's best bet

    A so called "no-deal" Brexit is in fact a misnomer. Leaving the EU on WTO terms is by far the best way for Britain to re-emerge as a power house in international trade. Let's get Britain out, and let's just do it

    The Treasury is the real threat to Brexit

    Chancellor Philip Hammond is playing a murky game, underming the chances of a real and true Brexit from Number 11 Downing Street. The false prophets of Project Fear need to be rebuffed. Kick Hammond out, and get Brexit accomplished without delay

    Why Brexit is good for Britain's security, and Europe's

    The strategic stability of Europe is fundamental to British security. Brexit will not only improve our security by tightening our borders, it will allow Britain to play to its strengths as a global player. Brexit is good for Britain, and good for Europe too
