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 […]

Paul Nizinskyj: Why I am a Conservative

Paul Nizinskyj: Why I am a Conservative

“Society is indeed a contract…between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.” Edmund Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France, 1790 “To me a Tory is a person who believes that authority is vested in institutions – that’s a carefully honed definition.” […]

Corbynismo must be met with equally
radical Conservatism

Conservatives for Liberty would like to congratulate Jeremy Corbyn on his landslide victory in the Labour leadership election. No, really. Apart from the fact Mr Corbyn is no doubt an honest man and a classic conviction politician, and apart from the fact that his radical socialism will no doubt tear […]

Drone executions: An unwanted 800th
birthday present for Magna Carta

I sometimes wonder whether the most favoured sport of world leaders and ‘elites’ isn’t mocking the populace in an effort to see just how much they can get away with. Tony Blair appointed Middle East peace envoy? Come on, they’ll never fall for that! He caused a major war that’s still going! […]

Why I wholeheartedly support the ‘revenge porn’ law

Why I wholeheartedly support the
‘revenge porn’ law

Readers of this blog will know I am not a legislation-happy bunny, particularly when it comes to policing the internet. I can never tell whether whether I’m more baffled or alarmed that police time is so often wasted on investigating “offensive” comments made online. Likewise, I struggle with the logic that […]

Yes, Enoch was right – but not about what
you think

“All political lives, unless they are cut off midstream at a happy juncture, end in failure, because that is the nature of politics and of human affairs.” Enoch Powell, Joseph Chamberlain, 1977 There is something of Lord Randolph Churchill in the tragedy of Enoch Powell. Winston’s father, like Powell, was a […]
