On GM Crops

July 20, 2017 // 5 Comments

Every day, apart from the 4% who insist on an organic diet, the British people will eat food derived from imported GM crops usually destined for livestock feed. This will be the case if they are consuming milk and derived products, eggs and derived products, pork, beef, chicken, duck and turkey. It [...]

Life is Precious – the Case of Baby Charlie Gard

July 19, 2017 // 1 Comment

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and their accomplices in the legal system are trying to kill a baby for the ‘crime’ of being terminally ill; they call it to ‘die with dignity’. Baby Charlie Gard has a rare genetic condition called mitochondrial depletion syndrome, which saps energy from [...]

Direct Democracy and how to get there

July 18, 2017 // 42 Comments

On 12th July 2017, I attended an invitation only event organised by John Rees Evans, in which he spoke about his vision of Direct Democracy (DD) for UKIP and for the country. In my view, the event was overly and inappropriately ‘presidential’ in nature and only attended by, perhaps, 80 people. [...]

Peter Whittle – Leadership Campaign Launch Part 2

July 18, 2017 // 32 Comments

[Continued from yesterday’s Part 1] Unlike the money-is-everything Tories, and the Britain-haters of Labour, UKIP has always believed in and celebrated our nation, our values and our history. It is not just about money, the bottom line, or knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. [...]

Peter Whittle – Leadership Campaign Launch Part 1

July 17, 2017 // 25 Comments

We find ourselves in the middle of another leadership campaign. It certainly has been a rollercoaster for us, as a party, since that momentous day last year when the country voted to leave the EU: A referendum which would not have happened without us. A victory which would not have happened without [...]

July 16, 2017 // 2 Comments

This article was previously published in ‘Campaign for an Independent Britain.  Part 1 can be viewed here   The 1950s-style interventionism of the Conservative Party’s latest manifesto not only failed to compete with Corbyn’s 1970’s-style socialist revivalism but did little to enthuse [...]

A Wake-Up Call – Part 1

July 15, 2017 // 17 Comments

[Ed: This article was previously published in ‘Campaign for an Independent Britain] In June’s General Election, a majority of young people voted for the Labour Party. It is hard to prove this statistically as votes are not analysed by age group, but we only have to look at our university [...]

A CASE FOR PROTECTIONISM

July 14, 2017 // 7 Comments

In a piece entitled On FreeTrade in January here I raised the option of protection of what’s left of our industry. This article develops the idea a little more. Yes yes I know it’s boring old economics again, but we’d better realise that it’s on the economy that elections are won or lost. [...]

A POSSIBLE TAX SCHEME FOR THE SUPER-RICH

July 13, 2017 // 12 Comments

Everybody is screaming that they want to see an end to “austerity”, and all the public services are demanding an end to the 1% pay rise cap.  Whilst we all value our public services and would like to see our NHS employees, policemen, firemen etc get a pay rise, we need to remember that it all [...]

What UKIP Can Learn From Donald Trump’s Victory

July 12, 2017 // 6 Comments

UKIP has already achieved two great victories: first, obtaining a referendum on EU membership and then winning it (with a bit of outside help). UKIP’s support in UK General Elections grew from 0.3% in 1997 to 12.6% in 2015, when it polled almost 3.9 million votes and finally won a seat in [...]
