Why the Brexit Secretary is out of his depth

Published on by

In Berlin this week our Brexit Secretary, David Davis, attempted to give a lecture to the Germans. “Don’t put politics above prosperity,” he said. That seems rich as the ideology of Brexit means doing exactly that: putting politics above the prosperity of Britain. But there were other oxymorons in Mr Davis’s speech. He said he […]

How fake news caused Brexit

Published on by

It’s becoming increasingly obvious that fake news in some of Britain’s leading newspapers helped to cause Brexit. Every day newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Express print articles that promote hatred of migrants and the EU generally. ‘Too many EU migrants’ was cited as one of the main reasons people voted for Leave […]

Unfit to govern

Published on by

The Tory administration is leading Britain to disaster. They are unfit to govern and should go. Tonight, International Development Secretary, Priti Patel, was forced to resign after a series of maverick, reckless, unofficial ‘secret meetings’ in Israel which broke the ministerial code. Yesterday, Brexit Secretary, David Davis, failed to deliver 58 Brexit impact reports, as […]

UK Brexit impact reports now don’t exist

Published on by

We should have known all along that the 58 Brexit impact assessments that Brexit Secretary, David Davis, claimed existed only last month are in fact all bluff and bluster. Just like Brexit itself. Today Mr Davis told MPs that the UK government’s 58 sectoral analyses of the impact of Britain leaving the EU can’t be […]

How newspaper lies led to Brexit

Published on by

In October 2015, I gave a speech to international journalists in Germany called, ‘Newspaper lies can cost lives.’ Less than a year later, Britain voted for Brexit, with one of the main reasons cited as ‘too many migrants’. How did such a fear and dislike of migrants develop? Newspaper lies played an enormous role. Video; […]

David Davis doesn’t understand negotiating or the EU

Published on by

Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has said that Britain won’t hold ANY Brexit talks unless the EU drops its demands for €100bn in payments it claims are due. It’s now more than likely that Britain will leave the EU without any agreement in place, which of course will be disastrous. Unfortunately, David Davis has shown he […]

Two-faced Theresa

Published on by

Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, has pledged to take the country out of the European Union. But before last year’s referendum on 23 June, Ms May was a firm advocate against Brexit and for Britain remaining in the EU. Can we trust a prime minister whose principles blow so easily in the wind? Is this […]

Britain has more vacancies than Britons to fill them

Published on by

Britain has more job vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need migrants. The country has a chronic skills shortage and without migrants helping to fill that gap, Britain – and Britons – would be poorer. Britain now has more people at work than ever before. […]

The best EU trade deal? We already have it.

Published on by

In Parliament last week, our new and unelected Prime Minister, Mrs Theresa May, said she wanted “the best possible arrangement for trade” with the European Union. Which is exactly what we have now. In America they have a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. So why does Mrs May want to fix something […]

Mrs May: Acting against the national interest?

Published on by

Prime Minister Theresa May is determined to take Britain on a course to Brexit, but only six months ago she said it wouldn’t be in the country’s interest to do so. Mrs May, then Home Secretary, said in a pro-Remain speech in April 2016: “I believe it is clearly in our national interest to remain […]
