Conservatism, Europe

The Brexit revolution should remind us all why we are conservatives

The Brexit revolution should remind us
all why we are conservatives

A week is a long time in politics, as they say, and my gosh what we’ve managed to fit into the last two. The continuing political earthquakes and aftershocks have demonstrated in a rather practical manner the meaning behind that well worn phrase, that a lot can happen in seven days because the nature of politics […]

The enemies of democracy are circling

The enemies of democracy are circling

I wrote immediately before this referendum that, whatever the result, the best thing about it was it had finally emboldened large swathes of the Left and the establishment to go public about something we had always suspected – their contempt for democracy and their loathing of the working class. However, even having […]

Lefty Remainiacs seek refuge in independent nation with no NHS

Lefty Remainiacs seek refuge in
independent nation with no NHS

When writing the lyrics to the Manic Street Preachers’ melancholic hit anthem Australia, following bandmate Richie Edwards’ disappearance in 1995, bassist Nicky Wire said he was thinking of the furthest place possible from his native Wales in order to escape the pain and shock of losing his best friend. Australia thus became an almost […]

This referendum has exposed our elites’ contempt for democracy

This referendum has exposed our elites’
contempt for democracy

I’ve been getting horrible déjà vu these last few weeks. The moment I’ve spent almost ten years of my life waiting for is upon me…and I can’t wait for the godforsaken thing to be over with. The last time I found myself balls deep in a debate as ugly and ridiculous in equal measure […]

This week Conservatives for Liberty held a joint event with the recently-resurrected Selsdon Group, in which 1922 Committee chairman Graham Brady MP kindly agreed to be the speaker. It’s not the first event we’ve held with the group, given when it comes to economic matters, we’re very much of the same mind. […]

Is Trump the end of the Great Republic?

Is Trump the end of the Great Republic?

Before her death in 1996, we’re led to believe, a blind old bat in Bulgaria known as Baba Vanga predicted the 44th President of the United States would be a black man – but that he would also be the last. It’s advisable to take these things with a fairly large helping […]

Debate: Should the Government  replace Trident?

Debate: Should the Government
replace Trident?

For – Ben Harris Since the mid 1990s the UK’s nuclear deterrent has come in the form of Trident, a system of four nuclear-equipped submarines whereby at least one is always on patrol ready to respond to an attack. Now over 20 years old, Trident is due to be replaced […]

Did Diane Abbott just call the White Cliffs of Dover racist?

Did Diane Abbott just call the White Cliffs
of Dover racist?

Any Diane Abbott is too much Diane Abbott. We all know this. And, in the last week, we’ve all been served the mental image of far more Diane Abbott then we would ever wish upon even our greatest enemy. Unless that enemy happens to be Jeremy Corbyn, of course. But, in many […]

American independence did wonders for British trade – Brexit will be no different

American independence did wonders for
British trade – Brexit will be no different

With a date for the promised EU referendum being touted as June 23 this year, the next six months in politics are going to be about one thing – fear. That the same people who said we would be finished if we didn’t join the euro are now telling us […]

Why did Europe not ‘demarxify’ after the Berlin Wall fell?

Why did Europe not ‘demarxify’ after the
Berlin Wall fell?

What in God’s name was the Cold War for? We were told for decades, most eloquently by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, that this was a fight for freedom against tyranny; a West in which free speech and the sanctity of the individual were honoured, and an East in which […]

The internet schools George Lucas in the
ways of the market

“People who alter or destroy works of art and our cultural heritage for profit or as an exercise of power are barbarians.” George Lucas before Congress, 3 March, 1988 I spent this week very happily watching the original Star Wars trilogy, as it was screened in cinemas between 1977 and […]
