Hungary – Euroscepticism goes east

July 27, 2016 // 0 Comments

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Uprising. This was where Hungarians rose up to fight the oppression of the Soviet Union. Whilst it failed, the brutality the Soviets used to suppress it lost them the support of many leftists in the West. The Hungarian Uprising also inspired [...]

Why Russia is a Friend to Post-Brexit Britain

July 22, 2016 // 11 Comments

Post-Brexit Britain should make Russia a priority for trade once our extrication from the EU is formally completed in the next two years. Putin’s Russia is not the Soviet Union. The USSR was openly committed to world conquest, and was prepared to openly back any rebellion to achieve that end. It [...]

Want Brexit? Support Scottish Independence!

July 18, 2016 // 6 Comments

I would stress that this is a personal view, but I believe Scotland should not be part of the UK. In the referendum, Scotland showed where her loyalty lies, and that is not with the UK. To be more precise, it showed where the loyalty of the majority of its electorate lies, but the point stands. [...]

There was a manifest destiny about the project, it was surely written in the stars that after two world wars, Europe would progress on the following lines. European countries would give more and more [...]

Reward the Eurosceptic working class

July 5, 2016 // 0 Comments

I am a believer that one good turn deserves another. The working class North and Midlands came out strongly for Brexit. Had they not done so, the avalanche of Europhile votes from London would have won the day for Remain and buried us in the EU, possibly forever. But the working class towns came [...]

How Australia Stopped Mass Immigration

September 14, 2015 // 2 Comments

In 2008, Australia found itself in a similar situation Europe is in now. Boats full of migrants were making their way in perilous sea journeys to enter Australia. At their peak, over 300 boats a year were arriving, and the Australian government twiddled its thumbs indecisively about what to do. The [...]

The Far Left

September 1, 2015 // 6 Comments

There is a famous story about Pauline Kael, a journalist at the uber-liberal New York Times in the 1970s. When Republican Richard Nixon won a 48 state grand slam victory in 1972, she bitterly remarked that she couldn’t understand how this had happened, since she didn’t know anyone who had voted [...]

Rebirth of Left Wing Eurosceptics

July 12, 2015 // 8 Comments

Possibly the most critical development of the last year or two has been the re-birth of left wing Euroscepticism. This is one that has genuinely fascinated me, as the left has many strengths it can bring to an anti-EU coalition. The left have lots of money, thanks to union dues, and they have [...]
