A low turnout today will favour Farage

Published on by | Comments Off on 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, […]

Climate changes dwarfs Brexit

Published on by | Comments Off on Climate changes dwarfs Brexit

Those who don’t think 16-year-olds should have a vote, should listen to the powerful and awe inspiring speech by the 16-year-old climate change activist, Greta Thunberg. Then, you might consider, that not only are 16-year-olds capable of voting; they are more capable of leading the world than many of our current leaders. In a rousing […]

Brexit means destroying the pro-Europe legacy of all past Prime Ministers since 1957

Published on by | Comments Off on Brexit means destroying the pro-Europe legacy of all past Prime Ministers since 1957

All the past British Prime Ministers since 1957 wanted Britain to be a member of the European Community. Could they all have been wrong? In the past 62 years, there’s only one Prime Minister who wants us to turn our back on Europe – the current incumbent, Theresa May. (However, before she became Prime Minister, […]

Britain doesn’t want Brexit

Published on by | Comments Off on Britain doesn’t want Brexit

Over a million people marched in London yesterday demanding a new People’s Vote on Brexit. The tide has turned. There is now no doubt that Britain doesn’t want Brexit. Today Remainers outnumber Leavers. There are no longer 17.4 million Leave supporters. According to analysis of recent polling, there are now only around 14.8 million Leave […]

Brexit: Support your MP to do what’s right

Published on by | Comments Off on Brexit: Support your MP to do what’s right

The first duty of all MPs is to put the safety of the country first. Contrary to popular belief, MPs are not beholden to follow the opinions of their constituents. That means that MPs in constituencies that voted for Leave are not under any legal or constitutional duty to support Leave if they believe that […]

Brexit has sunk our democracy

Published on by | Comments Off on Brexit has sunk our democracy

The Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, this week described the vote by UK MPs to block a no-deal Brexit in any circumstances as, “the Titanic voting for the iceberg to get out of the way.” It’s worse than that. The entire Brexit fiasco has sunk our democracy, leading the country to disaster. Yes, Brexit is […]

Related video: Is Britain now on step 3 of the ‘8 steps to genocide’? The photo above was shot on the streets of Munich, Germany on 10th March 1933; just six weeks after Hitler came to power. The picture, published across the world and later in many history books, was a chilling portent of the […]

After Brexit, the Tories want to scrap our Human Rights Act

Published on by | Comments Off on After Brexit, the Tories want to scrap our Human Rights Act

The Tories are planning a bonfire of our rights after Brexit, with the top priority being to scrap our Human Rights Act and replace it with a watered down ‘Bill of Rights’. That’s been the long-term goal of the Tories, but they can’t do it whilst we are in the European Union. That’s because, although […]

The truth about sovereignty

Published on by | Comments Off on The truth about sovereignty

Outside the EU, we’ll only have a say in our country, and there will be barriers to trade with our most important customers and suppliers in the world. But inside the EU, we have a say in our country AND our continent, and enjoy NO barriers to trade with our most important customers and suppliers […]
