A fisherman from the Ajax, and other Leavers, want to know the Prime Minister will not let them down.
Politicians are so uncomfortable talking seriously about our international role and relationships that instead we constantly engage in proxy battles.
No matter how hard Labour tries to pretend otherwise, the forthcoming general election is a Brexit election. It is defined by Brexit in the same way as the 2017 general election was. At that time, Labour was able to get a hearing on its domestic policies because, at the very last minute, a sentence that […]

It was all over too quickly. Here I was in Madison Square Garden, the Mecca for fighters, watching The Rock strap Jorge Masvidal – standing next to boxing legend Roberto Duran – the ‘Baddest Motherf***** belt around his waist. This iconic arena was rocking and has now been punched, kicked and elbowed off the bucket […]

‘To say no to President Trump would be saying no to God.’ — Trump’s faith adviser and ‘Righteous Gemstones’ character come to life Paula White is now an official White House employee pic.twitter.com/hjCOfnpjHD — NowThis (@nowthisnews) November 4, 2019 As you can see from the video she is quite the character. She has very similar values to Donald so you can see why they get on so well. As Voltaire once said: When it is a question of money, everybody … Read more
These West Midlands voters in Tom Watson’s seat care deeply about Brexit and see the Prime Minister as their champion.
There is an understandable desire amongst many Brexiteers to accept Boris Johnson’s deal. Everyone is battle weary, but it is precisely at this point that Brexiteers must be resolute. This is no time for political expediency. The EU wants the UK remain in its union. It has, for the last three years, waged a guerrilla […]

A portion of his 2016 voters are unimpressed and wavering – but the President’s fate is not settled. Particularly as the Democrats are yet to agree a candidate.
US President Donald Trump again roiled British politics with his comments in an interview with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage last week. In that interview he said two things of note. First, he made it very clear that the US was not after the UK’s NHS in a trade deal. To anyone involved in US […]

It is perhaps not surprising that a majority of activists believe, however narrowly, that it makes sense to work with another party that wants to leave the EU.
The abuse became so bad that I felt the need to stop giving media interviews, writing articles and to remove myself from the public arena.
“Sometimes you gotta let them fight, like two kids in a [parking] lot and then you pull them apart,” he said.
Shortly after the 2015 General Election, I received a note from Boris Johnson which read: “I don’t know what effect all that fish has had on your brain, but you seem to be the only person who correctly forecast the outcome.” My prediction had been published in my local newspaper and had included not only […]
“Does he know of any policy decision by any ally which has so undermined our security partnership and empowered our enemies?” “No…”
Turkey appears to assume that their opponents will flee. But if they’ve nowhere to go, they’ll have no alternative but to fight.
If ministers don’t act soon, jihadis could end up escaping camps in the region and returning to active operations either in the Middle East or further afield.
There is a sense with all Johnson speeches that he is somehow parodying a politician making a one – that the whole thing is done tongue-in-cheek.
And: Gove says MPs can sit at weekends to get a deal through. Plus: Brisk business at the bookstall – and the menace of the “offence archaeologists”.

He could soon preside over a full-scale proxy war, or else do the Nixon-to-China routine with Rouhani. There is simply no way of knowing.
Trump is now on his fourth National Security Adviser. By the time the election comes, expect him to be on his fifth or sixth.
Brexit has taught us many things as a country. One of the harsher lessons is that mainstream politicians, along with the media and policy communities, can no longer be trusted to provide an accurate and comprehensive account of why important political events happen. The Leave result delivered back in June 2016 has greeted by a […]

Former Government advisers see an opportunity to steer the party towards a “bigger government” vision for the party they’ve always spoiled for.
Their words, like Johnson’s visit itself, look more like more gambits in a blame game than a genuine change of heart.
Even though public concern about immigration seems to have eased off recently, there is reason for caution.
