Sajid Javid should use the first post-Brexit Budget to make his mark as a tax-reforming Chancellor

11 Oct

We are now less than three weeks away from what, hopefully, will be the date the British people’s instruction from the EU referendum will be implemented by the Government and Parliament. The likelihood is that a general election and a Budget will follow before 2019 draws to an end. So what ought the Chancellor be […]

Can Boris Johnson get us out of the EU before a general election?

11 Oct

Never have we had such uncertainty surrounding our Government and Parliament, so much so that we literally have very little idea what is going to happen. Boris Johnson has said many times that we will leave the EU on 31st October whatever happens, with or without an Agreement. Yet how can he possibly pull it […]

In a single summit, the British- Irish relationship has revealed its potential for delivering a better future

11 Oct

I’ve just returned from a trip to Waiheke, New Zealand’s Rathlin, only with sweeping golden beaches, millionaire pads and bijou vineyards with terrific wine tasting and an oyster bar. The two islands have different charms. From my family visit to sane New Zealand, I can’t resist making a couple of Brexit points from afar. What seems to be emerging is a joint customs procedure between GB and the island of Ireland that technically keeps NI within the UK customs territory … Read more

Pundits Were Certain Boris Wouldn’t Get a Renegotiation

11 Oct

The state of Brexit negotiations still remains unclear, with only slivers of information leaking to the press, however what does now look certain is Boris has forced the EU to prise open the Withdrawal Agreement and renegotiate – the precise thing we were told by anti-Brexit pundits and MPs was under no circumstances going to […]

With the bomb lighting

11 Oct

A certain independence blog has written FIFTEEN articles in the last month-and-a-bit about Wings, with a steadily-increasing tone of purple-faced rage, since we passingly suggested the idea of setting up a 2021 Holyrood list party if and only if the SN…

Corbyn Causes Scandal in India

11 Oct

Jeremy Corbyn was trending in India last night after a meeting he had with the Indian Congress Party.

What if a ratifiable withdrawal agreement emerges from “The Brexit Tunnel”?

11 Oct

We might be approaching end game territory. The secrecy (and seriousness) around the Merseyside talks yesterday suggests that might be the case. On RTE’s Morning Ireland the usually well briefed Europe correspondent Tony Connelly was as in the dark as the rest of us. The Taoiseach has pretty much announced that with a few more formalities the two sides (the UK and the EU) will be going into the tunnel process. That should ensure absolute confidentiality around the detailed negotiations … Read more

Corbyn’s New Chief of Staff’s Love-In with Jo Swinson

11 Oct

As Guido reported yesterday, Corbyn has a new Chief of Staff following the unceremonious removal of Karie Murphy two days ago. Whilst we know the new appointment, Helene Reardon Bond, is a married woman (purely on the basis her husband also works for Corbyn as his chauffeur), it looks like Bond has been flirting with […]

Extinction Rebellion Confronted By Actual Scientist

11 Oct

Newsnight had the excellent idea of pitting a nutty Extinction Rebellion protester (and former Green Party councillor) up against an actual scientist and author of the IPCC report on Climate Change last night, and although the IPCC;s Myles Allen tried to be polite to XR’s Sarah Lunnon, he calmly shot down her increasingly erratic predictions […]

Only a ‘reverse Greenland’ for Northern Ireland can resolve Brexit

11 Oct

Given the impasse over the future of the Northern Ireland border, argues Solon Solomon (Brunel University), the only solution is to implement a ‘reverse Greenland’ – where Northern Ireland would remain part of the EU. Boris Johnson recently tweeted a video of a baby making his first steps. He captioned it ‘Let’s get Brexit done’. Yet these baby steps post-Brexit […]
