Salmond Resigns, His Dream in Tatters

This week Scotland voted “No Thanks” to independence, choosing in record numbers to remain part of the United Kingdom. After a two and a half year campaign and a last-minute leap in the polls, Salmond and his party just missed the mark, losing to the Better Together campaign 55 percent to 45 percent.

Eurosceptics Must Learn from the Scottish Referendum Campaign

Next week Scotland will vote to decide whether or not to break free from the rest of Britain and go it alone as an independent country. The referendum has dominated this week’s news, divided Scotland and caused violence on the streets of Glasgow, yet somehow, for the first time since I turned nine and cried as I witnessed Tony Blair walk into Downing Street, I am entirely ambivalent about the result of a British election.

Carswell's Defection Has Made me Rejoin UKIP, says Former Tory Youth Star

Douglas Carswell has joined UKIP. About bloody time; this is a long awaited move. Carswell has been in closer political alignment to UKIP than to the Conservatives for years; on Europe, on climate change, on localism, on restoring public faith in politics… and his assurances that a move to UKIP was not imminent were noticeable by their absence long before this week Aug 29, 2014 4:06 AM PT

UKIP Faces Internal Divisions Unless It Gets Its Act Together

That UKIP is a party of contradictions is news to no one within the bubble, and something I have written about here previously. The party once attracted predominantly former Conservatives, both of small ‘c’ and large ‘C’ ilk. With the golf club lobby safely on-board, disillusioned with Cameron’s wetness and Conservative modernisation, Farage drew in the classical liberals and some libertarians with promises of lower taxes, school vouchers – then replaced with a commitment to grammar schools, a sensible energy policy, freedom from Europe, maybe even legalisation of some recreational drugs.

Sacre Bleu! Now 'Public Health Campaigners' Want to Regulate Your Cheese

Charles de Gaulle, the great French war time leader, famously asked “How can anyone govern a nation that has two hundred and forty-six different kinds of cheese?” Well, he gave it a solid shot, but clearly he was unaware of the sheer dogged fervour of the European health fascists in the British medical lobby and CASH (Consensus Action on Salt & Health) the most singularly miserable bunch since Cromwell’s parliament banned Christmas Aug 8, 2014 8:32 AM PT

Cameron Secretly Planning to Turn Private Landlords into a Border Police Force

David Cameron wants to put Britain first. Not by giving the British people a long awaited referendum on their future in Europe, nor by cutting taxes and protecting civil liberties, but by promising for perhaps the sixth time over the past year to break European law by limiting benefits for EU migrants in the UK after three months.

Britain Has Far More in Common with the Commonwealth than the EU

The Commonwealth Games have started and I am here in a surprisingly warm and gorgeous Glasgow for the Opening Ceremony. After London 2012 the pressure is on for Scotland: 6500 athletes from 53 countries, 71 if you include other territories, competing in 17 sports over 11 days as part of one massive celebration of the shared history, friendship and future vision of the Commonwealth.

Cameron Has Created A War Cabinet

Understandably, recent British headlines have been dominated by Prime Minister David Cameron's sweeping and divisive reshuffle of his cabinet, just ten months away from a General Election that could turn into one of the bloodiest in history. Jul 18, 2014 12:30 AM PT

Brand UKIP: A Success Despite Itself

What does UKIP stand for? If you ask the members you’ll receive a range of conflicting answers wider than the sun. If you ask the media, half will call us closet racists and the other half will return a snort of derision and disparaging comments on UKIP’s current lack of a manifesto. Jul 11, 2014 1:45 AM PT

Hollande Tries to Impose France's Failed Economic Model on the Whole of Europe

Not content with ruining his own country’s economy and seeing some of its best and brightest flee to freer lands, the French President, François Hollande, is trying to spread his own particular flavour of socialism across Europe via everyone’s favourite enemy of freedom, the European Union.

Britain Should Have an EU Referendum Now if Juncker Becomes President

It has often been said that Cameron is at his best when his back is to the wall. He thrives in a crisis, but seems less sure footed when the stakes aren't so high. Yet in the face of the post European Elections round of EU negotiations this talent has disappeared faster than Lib Dem voters at a by-election. Jun 19, 2014 6:01 AM PT

Conservatives and UKIP Should Work Together in the European Parliament

The European elections are over but the negotiations in Brussels continue as newly elected MEPs jostle for positions in the pan-European groupings. UKIP might have bagged the most votes in the UK but out in Europe they're finding themselves rather alone. Jun 6, 2014 1:46 AM PT

UKIP Juggernaut Rolls Over the Main Parties - Now the Right Must Unite

From the far left to the far right, in Britain, France, Denmark, Austria and Greece, euroscepticism is not merely “on the rise”; it has triumphed. In Britain, Nigel Farage MEP hailed a political earthquake, the greatest result seen in over one hundred years, while in France Marine le Pen’s Front National won a historic victory, polling 25% of votes cast.
