When the science was silenced

Jon Danzig |

The country’s top scientific advisers during the Covid pandemic are now free to tell the truth which the former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, wanted to silence. Giving evidence to the Covid public inquiry are Sir Patrick Vallance, the government’s former Chief Scientific Adviser, followed by Professor Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer for England and […]

You and human rights

Jon Danzig |

Let’s get this straight: Human rights legislation is all about protecting ordinary citizens from excesses of the state – in other words, OUR GOVERNMENT. That’s why it’s important that the final arbiter must be the international court in Strasbourg because the European Convention on Human Rights exists to protect citizens from NATIONAL governments. For some […]

Britain is naturally pro-EU. Read why.

For all the UK’s five decades in the EU, most Britons were happy for us to stay in. They didn’t want us to leave. The issue was settled in the 1975 referendum when, by a massive 2-to-1 landslide, the electorate voted to remain in the European Community. In the years that followed, calls to leave […]

Brexit used to sit on the far side lines of politics. Indeed, the word ‘Brexit’ was only invented in 2012, and until the referendum, most people didn’t know what it meant. (Now it’s in the Oxford English dictionary.) An in-depth study by the Migration Observatory showed that: The volume of press coverage mentioning ‘immigration’ or ‘migration’ declined from 2006 […]

Why Brexit is an aberration

Jon Danzig |

For most of the UK’s five decades as a member of the European Union, Britain didn’t want to leave. On the contrary, most Brits wanted us to stay. What’s the proof of that? Well, apart from polling over the years, look at governments and general elections. From 1959 to 2016, every UK government and every […]
