Johnson misled his Queen and his country

Jon Danzig |

Boris Johnson was at a Climate Change Conference in New York today as the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that his prorogation of Parliament was unlawful. For sure, the climate for Johnson has changed. But so far, he seems to think he can weather the storm. The beleaguered Prime Minister said that he “strongly disagreed” with the court’s […]

A general election is more democratic than a referendum

Jon Danzig |

LibDem leader, Jo Swinson, has promised that if her party wins the general election, they will revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit.

It was 80 years ago – on 1 September 1939 – that the Second World War started, when the German Nazi army launched a ferocious and unprovoked invasion of Poland. In the face of this unjustified aggression by Germany’s ‘Third Reich’, the United Kingdom and France could only resolve to declare war on Germany three […]

Operation Yellowhammer: Speak up before it's too late

Jon Danzig |

According to the government’s own in-depth assessments, every version of Brexit will make us worse off. But their ‘leaked’ Yellowhammer report has revealed that a no-deal Brexit will wreak the greatest havoc. It will also put into jeopardy our own union of the United Kingdom. And still, no one can properly answer why on earth […]
