Wales isn’t Labour; it’s Libertarian

Slap a red rosette on a monkey and stand him for a general election somewhere in the Welsh Valleys and you’ve got yourself a landslide majority, in favour of the socialist monkey. That’s how people tend to see party politics in Wales. In all fairness, it’s not far off. Wales […]

Muslims are individuals too: British Values are under threat from Collectivism

Muslims are individuals, they are not a homogeneity The other day I picked up a spare shift working at the Bangladeshi Restaurant that I used to work in. I picked it up because I was motivated by the extra cash I’d gain from the normally quiet Monday evening shift and […]

In a speech made earlier today Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP leader launched a renewed push for a second referendum, calling for a “new conversation” on Scottish independence. Sturgeon is hoping to leverage the Brexit result to regain momentum towards her long hoped for second referendum among a Scottish public who […]

Scotland

The SNP would have bankrupted an
“independent” Scotland

During the Scottish referendum campaign, the SNP claimed that an independent Scotland would be one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Many Nationalists fervently believed it. Not only that, they became convinced that the other nations of the Union were leeching off Scotland. Scotland wasn’t subsidised, it was subsidising […]

The SNP’s scathing attack on social mobility

The death of social mobility. Imagine the horror if one day you received a letter in the post informing you that you had secured a place at university. You are the first in your working class family to go into higher education and with three or four years of hard work, revising […]

Arrogance and snobbery led Wales  to vote for Brexit

Arrogance and snobbery led Wales
to vote for Brexit

By Callum Vaga In the time I spent working on the referendum campaign with Vote Leave in Wales, from when I was a voluntary activist to taking on a full-time role, I came to this conclusion; the ‘Stronger In’ campaign was our greatest asset. Their activists (mostly Labour Party campaigners from what […]

The SNP don’t want Scottish independence

There is little so galling as the self-righteousness of that pernicious bastion of hypocrisy the Scottish Nationalist Party. Nationalist pose as defenders of democracy; but Nicola Sturgeon is only a democrat when it suits her. They compare themselves favourably with Brexiteers as outward looking believers in unity and togetherness but […]

Why as a working class Unionist,
I cannot vote for the DUP

I turned 18 just in time to cast my first ever vote on June 23rd – to leave the EU. I then joined the Conservative Party in Northern Ireland. Part of my reason for joining was that the DUP, which styles itself as the party of the working class Unionist, […]

Hypocrisy in a not-so-independent Scotland

Hypocrisy in a not-so-independent Scotland

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is making great strides to sabotage the likelihood of the United Kingdom exiting the European Union by suggesting she has a veto on when and how it should happen, and by threatening another Scottish Independence Referendum. Here’s why that shouldn’t happen… A Poll across different […]

The circle virt over Loyalist bonfires
is wholly counterproductive

To those of us who sit on the right of the political spectrum the raging, aggressive, hostile and inherently leftist consensus that seems to exist across social media is the source of considerable amusement. Online unanimity, or onimity, if you’re the sort of person who likes a buzzword, can take […]
