I have often heard on the news that there is "Brexit chaos" but I, like Dan Hannan MEP, believe this to be a misleading statement. There is indeed chaos and delay to and difficulty with Brexit but that is not because of Brexit, it is instead because of poor leadership, the lack of a parliamentary… Continue reading Where, how and why did the Brexit Talks go Wrong?
Since Theresa May's Lancaster House Speech in January of this year, two new Project Fears have sprung up. The first (from The Labour Party, EFTA4UK, Liberal Leave, Leave HQ and Dr Richard North) states that “We need to remain members of the EU's internal market after we officially leave the EU”, even though there are… Continue reading The New Project Fear
Here is the hyperlink to an article entitled "Miliband's second referendum idea's bananas" which I have just written for the "Comment Central" website which has been shared by "Conservatives for Liberty", "Get Britain Out", the "Libertarian Party UK", "Parliament Street" and 900 others. I have reproduced the text of the article below: Former Foreign Secretary and… Continue reading Miliband’s Second Referendum idea is Bananas
Since the Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority, the line 'no [Brexit] deal is better than a bad deal' has come under attack. Conservative MP Anna Soubry suggested that the line is a 'nonsense' (here) and Labour MP Hillary Benn stated that the idea of leaving the EU with no deal is 'dead in the… Continue reading No Brexit Deal is Better than a Bad Deal
Some Brexiteers, especially advocates of a no-deal Brexit, have been rather carelessly, loosely and lazily bandying around Article 24 of the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT) under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as if it were a “silver bullet” or “smoking gun”. GATT was signed in 1947 and formally took effect the following… Continue reading Thoughts on Article 24 of GATT
I am deeply disappointed that Boris Johnson seems to be so popular among Conservative MPs, but particularly among Conservative Party members. The reason for this concern is not just his almost innumerable abhorrent and deliberately provocative and offensive, racist statements and gaffes. It is also because of his pretend Brexiteer credentials. Before the referendum was… Continue reading Boris the Brexiteer? Pull the Other One!
Having already written an article expounding upon Dominic Raab's unique strengths, experience, policies, ideas and qualities and why I'm backing him for Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister, I think it wise for me to compare him with the other declared candidates. I have heard a number of Eurosceptic Conservative Party members supporting Michael Gove's… Continue reading Why Michael Gove cannot be trusted
An article explaining why I think Dominic Raab is the best candidate for Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister. I’ll expound upon his strengths over and above the other candidates, his positive vision for Brexit and building a stronger, fairer Britain thereafter.
I personally did not support the particular way in which the official Vote Leave campaign used the £350 million figure during the referendum campaign and that was one of the many reasons why I did not support that particular campaign group, instead preferring other leave-supporting groups such as "The Bruges Group", "The Bow Group", etc...… Continue reading The £350 million Figure
In my last blog post, I made my own personal views on transition clear and I also stated what the government had said that their views on transition were. To summarise, I personally believe that, if a free trade agreement (FTA) between the UK and the EU is agreed by midnight on 29th March 2019… Continue reading No Transition is Better than a Bad Transition
In the EU referendum 73% of 18 to 24-year-olds voted to remain and did so enthusiastically rather than reluctantly. The very same people often tend to be staunch supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and this is a bizarre dichotomy because, before he became leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, was one of the staunchest Eurosceptics… Continue reading Where did it all go wrong for Corbyn the Brexiteer?
Project Fear scaremongered more about financial services than anything else during the EU referendum campaign and this scaremongering has unfortunately continued after the Brexit vote. Remoaners and soft Brexiteers (those who want us to remain members of the European single market after Brexit) now tell us that the reason why there was not an immediate… Continue reading Financial Services and Brexit
Theresa May’s Lancaster House Speech on 17th January 2017 Theresa May’s Florence Speech on 22nd September 2017 (just over eight months on from the Lancaster House Speech) I think that Theresa May's Florence speech today was over-hyped by media and contained very little of substance which we did not already know from the Lancaster House… Continue reading Theresa May’s Florence Speech
