  • Tim Dawson: Yvette Cooper’s amendment – which exists only to block Brexit – must be rejected

    Today is going to be a big day. We get to find out not only what MPs think of voters but of the Parliament in which they are so privileged to sit. Yvette Cooper’s amendment – which effectively ‘takes No Deal off the table’ – is designed to frustrate Brexit. There is no other reason…

  • Idreece Khan: Older Leave voters deserve respect

    “Society is indeed a contract. It is a partnership . . . not only between those who are living, but 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) Observing the French revolution in 1790 Burke saw that…

  • Tim Dawson: Remain overreach has put Brexit back on track

    We are halfway through another turbulent week in British Politics. A week of coups and chicanery. Of Dominic Grieve pretending he isn’t trying to reverse Brexit and Yvette Cooper trying to tie us into another 10 months of pointless Parliamentary peregrination. For many Brexiteers, being forced, two and a half years on, to replay the…

  • Tim Dawson: It’s crunch time

    As Parliament prepares to vote on Mrs. May’s Withdrawal Agreement, MPs need to consider what the country expects of them. Does this Withdrawal Agreement properly facilitate Brexit? No. Does it provide a gateway to permanent control by the EU? Absolutely. We have, as Conservative MP Nigel Evans noted, a Remainer Parliament in a Leave country…

  • Alastair Thompson: An EU army is a big mistake

    Jurassic Park brought many things to the world: one of the most recognisable theme tunes in history; the sounds we now associate with dinosaurs; and one quote that can be applied to nearly every political situation in the world. “(They) were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if…

  • A WTO Brexit is the best of both worlds

    A WTO Brexit would provide the best of both worlds, ensuring a clean and democratically mandated break from the European Union, whilst also facilitating the prospect of a possible future trade deal down the line. Despite the fictitious scaremongering which has surrounded talk of a WTO Brexit, the opportunities and possibilities it creates cannot be ignored.…

  • A no-deal Brexit with UK-EU trade on WTO terms is the best hope for Brexiteers

    A no-deal Brexit with UK-EU trade on WTO terms is the best hope for Brexiteers

    Now is the time that we must earnestly and openly prepare for a tariff-free, WTO-based future, irrespective of what the EU does and in parallel with any negotiations. A Brexit Minister within the DExEU department should be given the power to demand fortnightly updates on the progress of preparations in each government department for WTO-style…

  • UK Must Step Up With NATO

    UK Will Have to Lead NATO

    Ahead of tomorrow’s NATO Summit, the UK political scene has fallen into a small state of disarray. Both the Foreign Secretary and the Brexit Secretary have resigned and the Prime Minister is leading what appears to be a divided government. However, such divisions must be swept aside in favour of promoting a Britain set to…

  • UK Fishing Industry

    Fishing for Opportunities

    When the UK leaves the European Union, we will once again be a true island, coastal state. No longer tied to the Common Fisheries Policy, it will be an opportunity for us to completely regain control of our waters and the resources within them, as well as the flexibility to negotiate with other countries and…

  • Keep Calm and Carry On

    Keep Calm and Carry On

    On 10 November 2015, then Prime Minister David Cameron told the British people that it will be “your decision to remain in the EU…your decision; not politicians, not parliaments, not lobby groups, not mine, just you.” With a determined fortitude, Mr Cameron turned to the British people and said that this will be the final…
