    Götterdämmerung in Zimbabwe?

    There is a long list of people who can be blamed for the catastrophe that is modern Zimbabwe. But Labour's Clare Short, possibly the worst person ever to be appointed Minister for Overseas Development, really takes the biscuit

    How to get on in politics. Fail!

    The on-going farce in what is left of the Labour Party is nothing compared with the shin-kicking, eyeball-gouging Donnybrook going on amongst the Tories

    Tragic murder of Jo Cox doesn't mean fascism on the rise

    The Left has gone into overdrive after the tragic Jo Cox murder, ranting on about Britain's un-talked-about fascist past. But the truth is that Britain barely has a fascist past, unless you include the fascist Left

    EU referendum: The acid test

    As polls show a definite shift to Brexit, it's not hard to see why. Here's the acid test: If this referendum was not about leaving the EU but about joining it, how would you vote?

    In the mind of the Trumpster

    Drastically underestimated, Donald Trump is on the verge of making history. The establishment still doesn't understand that his supporters don't so much love the Trump as despise the establishment itself

    Shameless Remain's willful dishonesty over Europe

    Remain's EU referendum campaign is the most shameful episode in recent British political history on a par with 1930s ‘appeasement’ in its willful dishonesty

    Brussels out: Brexit needs to get its act together

    EU Remain's strategy of infantile, lying, scaremongering is an insult to the electorate. But Brexit has got to get its act together. The real message should be simple -- ‘We want our country back; and we are going to get it!’

    Cameron will leave a legacy of bitter division

    The positions of the Brexiteers and Remainers have polarised to such an extent that, post referendum, civil war is almost inevitable. What has been said, can't be unsaid. Cameron will leave a legacy of bitter division

    Who do EU think you are kidding, Mr Cameron?

    Cameron's line that it's EU membership or war is one of the worst lies ever told to the British public by a serving prime minister. The real threat to peace in Europe comes from the mad, destructive EU project itself. "Peace for our time", anyone?

    Hillsborough: What really happens next?

    The tragedy of Hillsborough was not due to any one single factor. Such disasters never are. And as the case is handed to the courts and the lawyers it is anybody's guess who ends up getting the blame

    Corbyn the barmy empire builder

    Jeremy Corbyn's ideas are barmy at the best of times. His response to the Panama fiasco is to suggest taking over the Crown Dependencies. So what's he going to do, invade the Isle of Man?

    Would Obama please butt out of Brexit debate?

    Given Obama's hopeless foreign policy, you'd have thought he'd stay out of the Brexit debate. But no. He's lecturing Britain on staying in. Fine. Every time he opens his mouth he creates thousands more Brexiteers.

    The Donald trumped by Old Molly

    Donald Trump is not only making waves in the United States. His bullying behaviour in Scotland has got a lot of people excited too. If he becomes president, he shouldn't expect much applause from the Scots

    Getting the U.S. presidential race wrong

    The one thing we can say for certain about the US elections is that no-one knows anything any more, except, perhaps, that Hillary is destined to fail one way or another
