Leavers and Remainers in Ipswich are clear that they want to Get Brexit Done

19 Nov

Since the start of the General Election campaign, I and the Ipswich Conservatives have knocked on over 10,000 doors and we’ve been able to talk to over 3,000 people from across the town. We have a huge amount of door knocking still to do, but I’d like to think we have a fairly good idea […]

In an election focused on the question of democracy, the anti-democratic Lib Dems must be exposed

18 Nov

In the early hours of 24th June 2016 I sent a message to David Cameron, urging him to stay on as Prime Minister. Shortly after that he stepped out into Downing Street and announced that he was standing down. He made the right call. Ever since that moment, we have seen a massive rear-guard action […]

What difference are the Unite to Remain and Brexit Party pacts likely to make?

18 Nov

The Unite to Remain alliance means the Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and the Greens are trying to pool their votes to ensure a Remain-backing candidate is elected. But the Brexit Party’s decision to stand down their candidates in Tory-held seats makes this tougher. Heinz Brandenburg (University of Strathclyde) concludes that the overall effect of these pacts will be minimal. Now […]

Here’s the deal on candidates that Boris Johnson should do with Nigel Farage today

14 Nov

Following Monday’s announcement by Nigel Farage that he would not stand candidates in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives in 2017 (including my own, Rutland and Melton), the first YouGov poll taken since that announcement shows the Tories clearing 40% for the first time since the Brexit Party was established. Interviewed on the BBC […]

Remain or Leave, people should be able to vote for the party they want to see win

12 Nov

We should be scrutinising candidates and policies. Instead the talk is of tactical voting and electoral pacts. Brexit has thrown the deficiencies of our voting system into sharp relief, but this must be the last general election fought under first past the post, writes Ian Simpson (Electoral Reform Society). Introducing the single transferable vote would mean voters would feel free […]

If Nigel Farage is putting country before party, he should stand down more candidates before nominations close

11 Nov

Until yesterday there was a danger that Brexit looked like it could be beginning to slip through our fingers. Like millions of other Leavers, the Hartlepool announcement by Nigel Farage has transformed my despair from the Brexit Party leader’s statement on 1st November, to hope and optimism. Despite being an advocate of a Leave Alliance, […]

How to halt the vexacious legal pursuit of our brave servicemen and women

11 Nov

Lord Caine has projected a plan that would allow proceedings into suspected Troubles-related offences only if certificates are issued by senior legal figures.

I never thought I’d say it, but we Brexiteers have to trust a Tory to deliver Brexit – or risk no Brexit at all

10 Nov

It’s not easy changing political parties although Boris Johnson’s hero and mine, Winston Churchill, did it twice, moving from the Conservatives to the Liberals in 1904 and back again in 1925. I joined the Conservatives in October, following the Prime Minister’s successful negotiation of a deal with the EU and its endorsement by the likes […]

Boris Johnson needs a Conservative majority at the election to Get Britain Out of the EU

9 Nov

In the last few weeks Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party have been ratcheting up their rhetoric attacking Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal – and the Conservatives – following the announcement no electoral pact has been reached between these two parties. We at Get Britain Out have been considering our position in this General Election […]

If I were still advising Nigel Farage, I’d urge him to scrap his strategy that could see Brexit blocked entirely

7 Nov

The latest polling from the constituency of Portsmouth South made worrying reading for Brexiteers. It showed that despite a fall in support for Labour as well as the Conservatives, a decent showing for the Brexit Party in fourth place on 14% left the Liberal Democrats in the lead and poised to gain the seat. The […]

In Peterborough at this General Election, only a vote for the Conservatives will deliver Brexit

6 Nov

A vote for the Brexit Party is a vote to let Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street. Nowhere do those words matter more at this General Election than in Peterborough, where I am standing as the Conservative candidate. There was of course a by-election in Peterborough earlier this year, which took place two weeks after the […]

Nigel Farage has misjudged the mood of Brexiteers, which is why I’ve left the Brexit Party for the Tories

6 Nov

Nigel Farage has always been a hero when it comes to Brexit. Unquestionably, the EU referendum would not have happened without him. He is a man of the people who galvanised two parties to electoral success and helped deliver a referendum result few felt possible even on polling day. But we are at a point […]

Bemused at the surrender of sovereignty at Maastricht, I was always going to be a Brexiteer

5 Nov

Earlier this month I had the great honour of winning the trust of the members of Buckingham Conservative Association to be their parliamentary candidate at the forthcoming general election. Of course the subject of Brexit dominated multiple questions at the selection meeting and my message was clear. I was in secondary school when the Treaty […]
