The Smoking Ban: Just Another Form of Illiberal Leftist Social Control

According to Health Minister Lord Darzi, smoking should be banned in London’s outdoor areas, making it the most smoke-free city in the world. While he’s at it, he also wants to ban fast food outlets from opening within 400-metres of a school, to introduce a minimum price per unit of alcohol of 50p, to force restaurant chains to use traffic light nutrition labels on their menus, and to make businesses fund travel discounts for staff who walk a mile of their journey to and from work.

Oxford Study Proves The Virtues of Selective Education

A new study by an Oxford academic has found a greater concentration of poverty in schools has a negative effect on pupils there, both rich and poor. Professor Steve Strand discovered a difference in GCSE results of 25 percent between children who qualified for free meals and those who did not at schools rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted. The study also found that children from relatively wealthy families perform worse at schools with large numbers of disadvantaged pupils. Sep 26, 2014 5:09 AM PT

Independent Scots Will Be At the Mercy of the Big State

National pride and the right to self-rule are noble ideas, so if some Scots truly lack any sense of Britishness, it's understandable (if unfortunate) that they might want to go it alone. For them, independence is not about economic viability; it’s about being in control of their own destiny. Sep 16, 2014 3:34 AM PT

The Left Hate Israel Because It Is Everything They Despise: Capitalist, Conservative and Patriotic

Everyone from liberal journalists to a member of the English cricket team is gunning for Israel at the moment. The Independent describes it as ‘rogue state’. The Guardian considers the Israeli 'occupation' of Gaza as a 'shameful injustice'. Meanwhile, cricketer Moeen Ali has pledged his support for the Palestinians by sporting 'Free Gaza' wristbands.

Female Genital Mutilation? It's Guilty White Liberals Who Make it Possible

After years of silence, the British establishment has finally acknowledged the 'national scandal' of female genital mutilation (or FGM, as it is called by those in the know), which has been practiced on up to 170,000 women and girls in the UK, and 140 million worldwide. Jul 4, 2014 6:40 AM PT

Oxfam Does Not Have A Right To Politically Campaign With Taxpayers' Money

Oxfam's new 'Perfect Storm' campaign poster has drawn plenty of criticism from conservatives, and rightly so. It's a risible piece of common room agitprop, full of hoary old clichés about spending cuts and capitalist greed. All that's missing is some Der Sturmer-style cartoons of bloated fat cats and monocled toffs. Jun 12, 2014 4:00 AM PT

UKIP Deliver a Heavy Blow to the Political Establishment

The crazy bastards only went and did it. Despite a concerted slur campaign against it, the UK Independence Party has triumphed at the local council elections, stealing dozens of seats from the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats. Once all the votes are counted, it's unlikely Ukip will control a single council, but its surge in support still represents a dramatic shift in the political landscape. May 23, 2014 4:01 AM PT

Sorry, David Brooks, But Bigger Government Is Not The Solution

Democracy is failing. People in the West are losing their faith in the ability of governments to force meaningful change. So what do we need? More government! That is the view of columnist David Brooks in a recent piece for the New York Times. He believes that technocratic elites would better able to get on with the business of planning our lives if they were rid of the meddling interference of the citizenry. May 20, 2014 9:27 AM PT

The Left's Morality Police Fail to Bring Down Richard Scudamore

After all that, it came to nothing. Premier League chief Richard Scudamore has escaped punishment for the sexist comments he made in a series of private emails, despite the best efforts of figures within politics, sport and the equality industry to see him out of a job. May 20, 2014 4:30 AM PT
