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 […]

Doubling down: More government to solve bad government…

Two polls were released by YouGov recently which paint an interesting picture of the public perception on Governance; these claimed that 31% of the public do not believe that the Government regulates business to an adequate amount, whilst only 19% doubted the effectiveness of this interference, arguing it is pursued […]

Scotland needs liberty

Scotland needs liberty

Scotland has for too long been governed by statists. For a generation the political debate in Scotland had revolved around Labour and the SNP arguing amongst themselves about which one is more left wing. Since the SNP took power in the Holyrood elections nine years ago the size, scope and […]

Being in the UK doesn’t make me feel less  Irish. Leaving the EU won’t make people  feel less European.

Being in the UK doesn’t make me feel less
Irish. Leaving the EU won’t make people
feel less European.

The general argument I have come across from opposition is that there is too much uncertainty in leaving the European Union, with many believing it is better to stick with the devil you know than the one you don’t. This to me is akin telling an abused spouse that they […]
