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

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 […]

If the NHS is the envy of the world, why  are so many doctors moving abroad?

If the NHS is the envy of the world, why
are so many doctors moving abroad?

One of the privileges of my job as a reporter is I get to meet a lot of people who I wouldn’t otherwise encounter from many different walks of life. One of these walks of life, I’m pleased to say, is doctors; I have been blessed with fine health thus far. I […]

Never mind gun control – Americans should be worried about executive orders

Never mind gun control – Americans should
be worried about executive orders

Ah, the joys of opposition. So easy to be noble, with no obstacles to vapid virtue signalling. As we all know, and the Liberal Democrats especially, politicians not unlucky enough to actually be in office are spared the onerous burden of making difficult, sometimes distasteful, decisions which are unlikely to […]

2015 finally saw the NHS anointed as the national religion

2015 finally saw the NHS anointed as the
national religion

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m thrilled 2016 is beginning with Justin Bieber at the top of charts. I’m actually rather impressed with the young man. He may have proven himself to be a vile human being on countless occasions (while simultaneously demonstrating the classic slow-motion car crash of child celebrity), but having three singles in the […]

Stop the War is a disgrace to a Left which used to stand for something

Stop the War is a disgrace to a Left which
used to stand for something

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his […]

Why I am not a liberal

Why I am not a liberal

Before I begin this article, I would like to open with the disclaimer that Conservatives for Liberty is a broad church amongst liberty-orientated Conservatives, and we passionately believe the Conservative Party is as much a home for classical liberals as it is for libertarians, Burkean conservatives, and High Tories like Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Uber: City Hall would treat us better if we
were opening factories

An Uber representative has claimed City Hall would be “more progressive” towards the car sharing service if the jobs it created were in factories. Head of European public policy Mark McGann was speaking at a Conservative Party Conference fringe event organised by the European Conservatives & Reformists Group earlier today in […]
