£1.7 Billion EU Bill Shows We Need Radical Reform

The EU’s announcement that it expects an additional £1.7 billion from the UK is both reasonable on a pan-European level, but unreasonable in the context of the UK. Crucially, it acts as a poignant reminder as to why the UK must be firm in renegotiating its position within Europe and why Britain’s contribution to the EU budget must be part of such a renegotiation. 25 Oct 2014, 2:31 AM PDT

Russell Brand - soap-dodger, lech, former husband of the infinitely more talented Katy Perry - is the most irritating person on earth. This much we knew.

Confiscating Jihadis' Passports 'Could Encourage Terrorism At Home'

The policy of confiscating the passports of radical Muslims has been called into question after it was revealed both terrorist attacks in Canada were perpetrated by people stripped of their travel documents.

Could Our Serjeant-At-Arms Protect The British Parliament?

This week most of the world has been struck by the remarkable sight of the Canadian Sergeant-At-Arms walking around in his traditional regalia with a gun, having personally fought off a terrorist attack.

We Must Defeat the Poisonous Ideology of Islamism

Immediately following the attack on Canada’s Parliament many media pundits began referring to the terrorist attacker as “misguided.” Some pondered whether the convert to radical Islam, Michael Sehaf-Bibeau, was somehow a “madman,” a “lunatic” or a “nut job.” What this betrays is a profound misunderstanding of the struggle being waged against free Western societies and an underestimation of what must be fought. 24 Oct 2014

This morning’s ComRes poll in Rochester and Strood has UKIP defector Mark Reckless 13 points ahead of the Tories in the constituency.
