Will the BNP’s Griffin show his leftie credentials on Question Time?

“the BNP is old Labour with racism”     Hat’s off to the BBC! Finally, it seems to have woken up to its charter obligations to stimulate wide ranging, unfettered debate in Britain. Last week the BBC was doing it with Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician who was formally banned from entering Britain for the outrageous […]

Cameron Speech Was Clever, Emotional And Impressive

But He Fails My Test On Europe, Climate Change, NHS and Tax One Failure Might Be Negotiable, But 4 Means “Thumbs Down” I won’t be voting for a party that is afraid to stand up for solid, Conservative principles. Lucky old UKIP, I say.     I’ve been agonising over whether to swallow my principles and […]

Britain Doesn’t Have To Concede Lisbon Treaty Defeat

Tell E.U. ,Treaty Can’t Go Ahead Until British People Vote Come on Cameron, Show Us Some Leadership, Courage The Tories are trying to be too cute with their “stand” over the  E.U.’s Lisbon Treaty, following Ireland’s shameful, craven, and cowardly “yes” vote. “Let’s wait until we get into power. Let’s wait and see if Czechistan […]

Labour deliberately destroys opportunity for the poor, then pretends to wonder why

    The bare-faced chutzpah of Alan Milburn was matched only by the incompetence of the BBC interviewer.     Former Labour Health Minister Milburn was blathering on about how the gap between rich and poor in Britain had widened not narrowed. He had authored a report for Prime Minister Gordon Brown which found that opportunities […]

Police must protect free speech, even if it means defending the BNP

    Allegedly, the police at Westminster last week stood by and allowed the fascist beasts from Unite Against Fascism to assault the er fascist beasts from the British National Party.     I have a suggestion for the police forces of Britain. Just as footballers are greeted with the words “This is Anfield” as they emerge […]

Vote UKIP on Thursday; then dream of saying Bye Bye Brussels

    I’ve never understood why freeborn Englishmen and women could ever be so insecure as to think they need to hand over their rights to foreigners in Brussels order to succeed in the world.     And if you say that as someone of a certain age, I might be responsible for this because of […]

Reform now; Parliament must regain government control, elect PM separately. Goodbye E.U.

    Now the dust is settling on the MP’s expenses scandal, we can turn to the urgent reform of the political system.     Our politics have been seriously flawed for years because of the failure of its most important principle, the separation of powers. The idea that Parliament should hold the government to account, […]

Despite the turmoil, Britain’s Brown will hang on to the bitter end

    For all the talk of revolution, upheaval and change, nothing much is going to happen in British politics this side of a general election, which still looks likely to happen a year from now.     Yes, Speaker Michael “Gorbals” Martin has gone and that was unprecedented, but nothing else has really changed. Listening […]

Will the public still loath politicians a year from now, when it matters?

    I was always going to vote for UKIP in the European elections on June 4, and it is clear that other minor parties like the BNP and the Greens will do well, following public disgust with the mainstreamers after the Parliamentary expenses scandal.     The difficult question is – what happens afterwards. Will […]

Islam, like Communism, can’t be trusted and must be challenged

THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2009 AT 5:45PM “The U.S. is not and never will be at war with Islam,” said U.S. President Barack Obama the other day in Turkey. I suppose that was a nice thing to say given his surroundings, but it set me thinking, and I’ve tried to make some sense of what our attitude […]
