DC Diary: Democrats feel the consequences of neglecting the common man

DC Diary: Democrats feel the consequences of neglecting the common man

Well this is all very familiar. I’m in a bar in Democrat Washington, DC at 10.30pm and everyone’s shitting themselves. It’s a similar mood to the East of England count I attended during the EU referendum vote once the North East started coming in. And don’t get them started about […]

DC Diary: Muh ‘mocracy!

Our Creative Director Paul Nizinskyj reports on the US Presidential Election from Washington, DC. The fate of the Great Republic hangs in the balance on Tuesday, if the President of the United States is to be believed. But you wouldn’t know looking around Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. In fact, despite being only […]

Three years on: Why CfL is more important than ever

Three years on: Why CfL is more important than ever

In October 2013, Conservatives for Liberty entered the political arena with a launch event at The Barley Mow in Westminster. Daniel Hannan, recently inaugurated as our Honorary President, was our speaker for the night. We were overjoyed that we managed to attract 100 activists to our first event and were optimistic about how this […]

US Presidential Election: Bunga bunga or World War III?

Our Creative Editor, Paul Nizinskyj, travels to Washington, DC next week for a front-row seat of the most important, and bizarre, election of the year. Almost 200 years ago, French liberal Alexis de Tocqueville made one of the most profound predictions in modern history, in his book Democracy in America. […]

Stand up to authoritarianism  in the Party – Join us!

Stand up to authoritarianism
in the Party – Join us!

Theresa May becomes our prime minister today, once David Cameron has handed over the seals of office, and she is invited to kiss hands with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. It is particularly galling for liberty-minded members like ourselves that Theresa May is not only not the leader we would […]

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 […]

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

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 government is looking more like

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. […]
