Published on by | Comments Off on Will Britain’s beaches be clean after Brexit?

With the pound dramatically lower as a direct result of Brexit, many more Britons are now holidaying at Britain’s seaside resorts. And it’s thanks to the EU that 95% of our beaches are now clean enough to wade out into the sea. It wasn’t always like that. Back in the 1970s, we used to pump […]

A sobering article in today’s Financial Times by Camilla Cavendish, who assertively claims that, ‘Remainers have lost and must now accept defeat’. Her article opens: ‘Britain’s downhill slope towards leaving the EU is getting steeper; the slide into liberation-oblivion is coming closer.’ She claims, ‘A second referendum is vanishingly unlikely. Moderates who don’t want the UK […]

So desperate is Boris Johnson for the keys to number 10, that he has conceded all the demands of the far-right of his Tory party, who have said they will withdraw their support for him if he doesn’t do what they say. The Guardian reported today, ‘Eurosceptics in the party were increasingly turning the screws […]

Prime Minister, Theresa May, officially leaves office today, with many Tory candidates hoping to take her place. But a new Conservative Prime Minister doesn’t mean that their 2017 manifesto promises can be forgotten or forsaken. It was on their manifesto promises that the current Conservative party won power, regardless of who is their leader. The […]

 Click to view 2-minute video When USA President, Donald J. Trump, made a state visit to the UK this week, it wasn’t just to see the Queen, writes Jon Danzig.

Boris Johnson’s cake delusion

Published on by | Comments Off on Boris Johnson’s cake delusion

When Boris Johnson became Foreign Secretary shortly after the referendum, he promised that Britain would get a great deal with the EU after Brexit, “of huge value, possibly greater value” than being a member of the EU. In an exclusive interview with The Sun published on 1 October 2016, Mr Johnson declared that he was […]

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.

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 […]

A low turnout today will favour Farage

This article is dedicated to Dave. He’s a good guy, but he told me this week that he doesn’t vote, he can’t see the point, he doesn’t think it makes any difference. Dave – and all others who have the same view (and sadly, there are many of them) – need to be reminded of […]

Remainers unite! Divided we fail

Published on by | Comments Off on Remainers unite! Divided we fail

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, […]
