Three of a kind: Trump, Johnson and Farage

Published on by

The Times and other newspapers report today that President Trump has praised Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage as two “big powers” in Britain.  Trump congratulated the Brexit Party leader for his success in the European elections. Mr Trump said: “Nigel Farage is a friend of mine, Boris is a friend of mine. They are two very […]

The EU election: Remain blew it

Published on by

I don’t usually read the Nation.Cymru newspaper, but their analysis of how the Remain side lost in the EU election is spot on. Writing for the paper, described as, ‘A news service by the people of Wales, for the people of Wales’, Ifan Morgan Jones commented: ‘It was Remain that needed to use this election […]

Remainers unite! Divided we fail

Published on by

The Financial Times has published an article which provides the raw truth for the Remain movement: Britain’s Remainers are too divided. It’s something I have been complaining about for some years. My disappointment in the inability of Remainers to work effectively together has moved to frustration, to anger, and now to resigned despair. Truly, deep, […]

How did we get stuck with Brexit?

Published on by

DATELINE 6 JUNE 2018: Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has been criticised this week for rejecting a House of Lords amendment for Britain to remain a member of the EEA (European Economic Area) after Brexit. Instead, Mr Corbyn said Labour would push for a ‘new Single Market’ deal with the EU, giving Britain full access but without […]

Should the EU referendum be annulled?

Published on by

It’s reported that police are investigating evidence that the chief executive of a key organisation that campaigned for Brexit allegedly committed criminal offences during the 2016 referendum. This comes after the Electoral Commission fined Leave.EU the maximum £70,000 for multiple breaches of electoral rules. The organisation is backed by Nigel Farage and funded by Arron […]

The end of the EU is their aim

Published on by

EU negotiators beware. At least some of those on the other side of the table from you don’t just want Britain to leave the EU. They want to see the end of the EU altogether. That’s been the aim of prominent Brexit campaigners from the start. And it’s certainly the aim of the guy who […]

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 […]

EU Referendum: Unfinished business?

Published on by

Just five weeks ago, UKIP leader Nigel Farage, anticipating a close-finish in the EU referendum, told The Mirror, “In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way.” In those circumstances, said Mr Farage, pressure would grow for a re-run of the 23 June ballot, and he would fight for a second […]

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 […]

What they really want: End of the EU

Published on by

So now the truth is out. The ‘Leave’ campaign don’t just want Brexit – they want to see the end of the European Union. Justice Secretary, Michael Gove, said as much in his keynote speech this week for Vote Leave, the official campaign which he leads, fighting for Brexit in Britain’s EU referendum. Mr Gove […]
