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 […]
Despite repeated calls for new electoral rules, British politicians and regulators have dragged their feet.
Proposal by Finland’s EU presidency would keep out China and possibly Turkey too.
Exactly seventy years ago the Scottish Covenant was launched. It was a petition to the United Kingdom government to create a Home rule Scottish parliament. It would eventually be signed by two million people. First proposed in 1930 the National Covenan…
MPs voted overwhelmingly to hold a national poll in December.
And even if one were to take place, there’s every reason to believe it would deepen, not resolve, the sense of crisis and acrimony.
The prime minister has asked his EU adviser to lead the next stage of Brexit talks.

The bill will get its second reading in the House of Commons on Tuesday.
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, […]

Members of Parliament do not know their place in the EU food chain. It pains me to point this out, but they are the bottom feeders. The halibuts of European democracy. The flounders. So it turns out there’s a second reason, beyond publicity for his fishing constituency, why the excellent BrexitCentral contributor and doughty former […]

By reaching a deal in Brussels, the Tory anarchist has exceeded what the official classes and conventional wisdom supposed was possible.
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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
British prime minister refuses to deny that Britain could act as a spoiler should it be forced to stay in the EU against his government’s will.
Boris Johnson says he will not request a Brexit extension as required by the law.
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 […]
The post How can you protest for democracy, when your cause is to ignore democracy? appeared first on BrexitCentral.
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 […]

Labour leader says he is prepared to face the Tories in a snap election once he’s certain Britain won’t crash out of the EU without a deal.
The Labour leader attacked the Tory ‘born-to-rule government of the entitled,’ saying it could not be trusted.
‘The prorogation was also void and of no effect. Parliament has not been prorogued,’ says top judge.
He also appears to describe the idea as “a typical British lie”.
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 […]
The Lib Dem leader argues in her set-piece conference speech that “there is no Brexit that would be good for our country”.
Anti-Brexit parliamentarians hail the ruling as ‘historic.’
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 […]
