November 9 is Remembrance Saturday 

8 Nov

November 9 is Remembrance Saturday, which commemorates the apex of the end of communism in Central-Eastern Europe, writes Charles Turner (University of Warwick). He explains that the Cold War was less a domestic affair than a conflict over geopolitical influence between superpowers whose systems were seen as fixed. He argues that the seemingly sudden deconstruction of the communist system had actually been […]

Saturday’s antics in the House of Commons made me sick and ashamed to be an MP

20 Oct

I left the House of Commons on Saturday afternoon feeling sick. The treachery of many MPs in this disgraced Palace of Westminster is literally sick-making. As a former soldier, I shall not hold back from saying what I think, because I am ashamed of this determined effort to prevent our departure from the EU. And, […]

We should be suspicious of an anti-democratic EU now creating its own fighting force

14 Oct

A strange feeling overcame me last week in Brussels. I felt, for the first time, repulsed by all for which the EU stands. Until now I had, admittedly unthinkingly, laboured under the illusion that, whatever its failings as an institution, the EU is part of the fabric of liberal western democracies. I had always known […]

Masquerading as democrats, our Parliament is sadly now behaving like the European Commission

10 Oct

At the heart of Brexit is democracy and what it means. Democracy is ‘a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections’. When David Cameron called the EU referendum he vested supreme power in […]

9 Oct

Following my recent piece busting the Remainer myth that “Brexit has caused a national crisis”, here are four further disingenuous fabrications that you can expect to be promulgated widely in the media in the coming days. 1. Another referendum is the democratic response to the crisis Note that this ‘solution’ comes as a result of […]

At DExEU I saw the May Government agree to Brexit in name only – now we must free ourselves from the EU’s shackles

3 Oct

I worked for two years as a civil servant at the Department for Exiting the European Union. I cannot fault the staff I worked with, who represent the very best and brightest that the British Civil Service has to offer. DExEU felt more like a start-up business than a lumbering ministry of state: it was […]

How can you protest for democracy, when your cause is to ignore democracy?

26 Sep

Whether outside Parliament, the Supreme Court, or with Emily Thornberry at the Labour Party Conference, how is it possible that people can protest against the referendum in the name of democracy? How too is it possible that within the Commons itself, upholding the constitutional decision to leave the EU could be branded hate? I suspect […]

Over the last three years we have been witnessing the deconstruction of democracy

26 Sep

What we are seeing in Britain today amounts to nothing less than a quiet, determined deconstruction of democracy in our country. It is not merely an attempt to frustrate one single outcome of the democratic process – it is an attack upon its very soul. The foundation of democracy is a bond of trust between […]

Too many of our Remainer politicians are living in a horror-filled fantasy land of fear and economic ignorance

19 Sep

The great majority of the British people are getting on with their lives wondering why the politicians haven’t yet left the EU. Our political class has moved into fantasy world. Terror, fear and unimaginable horror stalk the land in fairytales invented as the last desperate attempt to keep Britain in the EU. It’s a realm […]

Brexit has not caused a national crisis – but MPs have caused a democratic crisis

10 Sep

As Britain staggers back to the Brexit Rubicon for a third time (finally led by someone knows the way there), many Remainer Fundamentalists, who dominate the political Establishment, are continuing to dissemble and spout egregious disinformation and apocalyptical prophecies. These Fundamentalists wishing to thwart the Referendum result endeavour to re-educate the poor, benighted, Leaving masses […]
