Brexiteers must unite behind Boris Johnson or risk being trapped in the EU forever

9 Dec

Since the summer I have been proposing that the two pro-Brexit parties – the Tories and the Brexit Party – forge an alliance to command a considerable majority for Brexiteers in the House of Commons. After Nigel Farage’s Hartlepool announcement before the close of nominations that he was withdrawing Brexit Party candidates in Tory-held seats, […]

Boris Johnson is no Johnny-come-lately to the Brexit cause

30 Nov

Following the fallout from Brexit Party candidates standing down in Tory-held seats, some opponents of Boris Johnson continue to portray him as a “Johnny-come-lately” to the Brexit cause. Frequent news articles purport to claim Boris only came round to his belief in exiting the EU at the eleventh hour, specifically on 21st February 2016 when […]

Is the support of Brexit-backing voters in ex-industrial towns key to the Tories winning the election?

15 Nov

The Brexit Party’s announcement that it will not stand in the 317 seats the Conservatives won at the 2017 General Election is a notable development – but not quite the game-changer some make it out to be. The risk remains of a “pro-Leave split” allowing Labour to cling on to Brexit-leaning seats such as Halifax […]

Boris Johnson should accept Farage’s overtures and let the Brexit Party wreak havoc in Labour’s heartlands

1 Nov

In the wake of Gina Miller’s website launch encouraging tactical voting among Remainers to oust the Tories, it is time for Brexiteers to put country before respective parties and do the same. Over the past week, there has been speculation that when Nigel Farage launches the Brexit Party election campaign today, he might announce that […]

If he wins a majority, Boris Johnson would be well-placed to play hardball with the EU in negotiating the future relationship

31 Oct

Does Boris Johnson’s deal Take Back Control of our borders, our laws, our trade and our money? Yes, on balance it does, despite the doubts. After the transition period we leave the Single Market and Customs Union, can cut tariffs, negotiate trade deals and change our own rules, regulations and taxes. We will have our […]

The absurdity of Labour’s enthusiasm for the European project

28 Oct

I’ve never been able to understand my party’s ignorance of economics and production. We’re good at fostering consumption and excellent at the NHS, education, social services and welfare, but appalling at understanding the basic economics of building and sustaining an industrial base on which everything rests. Instead of growing the economy by state backing and […]

Brexit is no right-wing coup, but the means of escaping the EU’s neo-liberal economics that are harming our planet

26 Oct

The mainstream media, New Labour, the Yellow Tories and the Establishment would have you believe that Brexit is somehow a right-wing coup. These siren voices of the Establishment want you to forget that we had a “once in a lifetime” (former Prime Minister David Cameron) referendum that produced a clear result. The biggest single vote […]
