Does Boris Johnson remember what he said?

Published on by

Who knows what Boris Johnson really believes, least of all him? He previously said “what most people in this country want is the single market”, and he would personally vote to remain a member of it. He told the BBC Andrew Marr Show in 2012: ″We would like a new relationship. And it’s very simple […]

Brexit won’t get your country back

Published on by

Just ten days before the EU referendum, I wrote an article for Independent Voices​ with the headline, ‘You won’t get your country back if you vote for Brexit. You’ll give it away to the most right-wing government in recent history.’ And so, it has come about. My article was shared by Independent readers a record […]

Britain’s road to insanity

Published on by

David Davis only last March said we’d never pay anything like a £50 billion settlement to leave the EU. Boris Johnson said the EU could go and whistle for the money. Priti Patel said the EU should be told to sod off. During the referendum campaign nobody was told anything about the cost of leaving […]

Unfit to govern

Published on by

The Tory administration is leading Britain to disaster. They are unfit to govern and should go.

Yesterday, Brexit Secretary, David Davis, failed to deliver 58 Brexit impact reports, as […]

It’s their country they want back, not yours

Published on by

‘We want our country back!’ is the clarion cry of many who want Britain to leave the European Union. But whose country do they want back exactly? Your country? My country? Or really, just their country? Before we leave the European Union and possibly change our country forever, we need to have an idea what […]

Leaving EU doesn’t appeal, said Boris Johnson

Mr Johnson told BBC Radio Five Live, “Whether you have an in/out referendum now, I can’t quite see why it would […]

How Boris changed his mind on Europe

Writing exclusively for the Daily Telegraph, London Mayor Boris Johnson said that if Britain left the EU, “we would have to recognise that most of our problems are not caused by Bwussels [sic]”.  Mr Johnson made his remarks after Michael Gove and Philip Hammond became the first two Cabinet ministers openly to support leaving the […]

Boris Johnson’s big blunder

Published on by

The mayor of one of the world’s most pro EU capital cities has announced that he wants Britain to leave the European Union. Boris Johnson, MP and London’s Mayor, made his announcement after apparently agonising over the decision for hours and following the pleas of Prime Minister, David Cameron, for him not to abandon the […]

Why is Britain so against migration?

Published on by

Some of the media seem to be in a state of panic this week with the news that the number of foreign-born people living in Britain has reached 8 million, and net migration to the  UK has reached record levels. So what’s the big deal here? Not all those born abroad can be described as […]
