Easter is a Christian festival

March 19, 2017 // 17 Comments

I posted this today on Facebook: I’ve examined every ‘Easter’ egg in my local supermarket. Only one has got the word Easter on it and that’s the small Malteaster egg. There are no banners or posters in the store to denote that it is Easter, which is completely the opposite [...]

Our Judicial System is Under Threat

March 16, 2017 // 8 Comments

We live under a judicial system that is over a thousand years old, it is derived from common law and laws made and placed into statute, by those people elected to Parliament to make such laws. It is not perfect but it is tried and tested and is constantly re tested as it knows that it has to be a [...]

Parliament!

March 14, 2017 // 5 Comments

I have spent an illuminating afternoon educating myself upon the history of the English Parliament, courtesy of Wikipedia (groan not – it may not be totally authoritative but it is readable and, ultimately, fascinating). What comes across very clearly is how our Parliament has been forged [...]

A new home for Labour voters

March 12, 2017 // 23 Comments

That lack of a Farage knighthood could prove a godsend to UKIP. It is true the party is at a crossroads and that the referendum vote has allowed UKIP’s detractors to continue the narrative of the party’s demise. But as in all arguments it is merely one view; from another side it could just as [...]

UKIP must face Islam, or die

March 8, 2017 // 204 Comments

“My political priorities, post-Brexit, have become very simple. The party that’s most willing and able to stand up to Islam will get my vote.” That was a tweet from @meganne121 last week and she is not alone. There is enormous and growing public concern about Islam, and our politicians [...]

Christianity and the West

March 5, 2017 // 12 Comments

‘We don’t do God’.   During a Press Conference in 2003, Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s Director of Communications, intervened to prevent the Prime Minister from answering a question on his Christian faith.   During the 13 years New Labour was in power there was a [...]

Does Religion Have a Place in UKIP? – Part 2

March 1, 2017 // 17 Comments

It’s sometimes uncomfortable for me, not being a traditional tribal right-winger, being in a right-wing party. In the old world, the left was revolutionary – for democracy, the ordinary working folk and the dispossessed against established elites – while the right was conservative – [...]

Does religion have a place in UKIP?

February 26, 2017 // 22 Comments

This provocative title first came to me during last year’s UKIP leadership election. I had been thinking about John Rees-Evans, knowing how ardently Christian he is and remembering how those in the branch who had been gathering nominations for him were among the most staunch churchgoers. I then [...]

The EU Baroque Orchestra

February 23, 2017 // 5 Comments

One of Britain’s most successful orchestras is moving to Belgium amid fears that its musicians may be among the victims of a post-Brexit crackdown on immigration. The EU Baroque Orchestra has been based in Oxfordshire since 1985, but will give its last UK concert in its current form at St [...]

Onward Christian Soldiers …

February 23, 2017 // 14 Comments

Marching, as to war, with the battalions of sceptics, scientists and the curious is the engaging and learned Reverend Philip Foster.  A crusade indeed, but to this atheist, a just and honourable one. It is a war against #fakescience. It is a battle for truth, honesty, ethics and the foundations of [...]
