Forward Together: A manifesto for Tory paternalism

Forward Together: A manifesto for Tory paternalism

It’s become increasingly clear that libertarians are losing the battle for the heart of the Conservative Party – never more so than on the publication of ‘our’ latest election manifesto: “We must reject the ideological templates provided by the socialist left and the libertarian right and instead embrace the mainstream […]

The Labour manifesto is a ruinous blueprint for a socialist Britain

The Labour manifesto is a ruinous blueprint for a socialist Britain

The leak of the Labour manifesto is either further evidence of the leadership’s utter incompetence, or speaks volumes about the deep divisions further opening between the Far Left and the rest of the Party. If it was a strategic leak; it shows the leadership’s ineptitude as it gives the Conservative […]

China Lake, Calif. (Nov. 10, 2002) -- A Tactical "Tomahawk" Block IV cruise missile, conducts a controlled flight test over the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) western test range complex in southern California.  During the second such test flight, the missile successfully completed a vertical underwater launch, flew a fully guided 780-mile course, and impacted a designated target structure as planned. The Tactical Tomahawk, the next generation of Tomahawk cruise missile, adds the capability to reprogram the missile while in-flight to strike any of 15 preprogrammed alternate targets, or redirect the missile to any Global Positioning System (GPS) target coordinates. It also will be able to loiter over a target area for some hours, and with its on-board TV camera, will allow the war fighting commanders to assess battle damage of the target, and, if necessary redirect the missile to any other target. Launched from the Navy's forward-deployed ships and submarines, Tactical Tomahawk will provide a greater flexibility to the on-scene commander.  Tactical Tomahawk is scheduled to join the fleet in 2004.  U.S. Navy photo.  (RELEASED)

A Conservative Budget? More tax, more spending and more debt

A Conservative Budget? More tax, more spending and more debt

When is a Conservative not a Conservative? When they clobber entrepreneurs, increase taxes & spending, and add to the national debt.   The press was briefed pre-budget that we were in for a dull affair, and Philip Hammond duly delivered. There was no radicalism, no imagination and – bizarrely – […]

Online Pornography – A moral panic

The Digital Economy Bill spans a number of issues, not all of them strictly related other than that they all, to varying extents, are to do with `digital’ matters. It represents a bold attempt by Government to bring legislation up to date with the rapidly changing cyber landscape, but as […]
