UKIP and a Second EU Referendum

January 13, 2018 // 22 Comments

I was shocked and appalled, like most UKIPPERs, that Nigel Farage conceded that a second EU Referendum could be held. He made his comments on the Wright Stuff daytime TV show on January 11th 2018, and it caused such a backlash that he spent the rest of the day backtracking on what he had said. [...]

October 23, 2017 // 6 Comments

[Ed: UKIP Daily has published Part One of this essay on Sunday 22nd October.] With the EAW (European Arrest Warrant) Brussels has already launched and landed a grappling iron on our liberties.

EU to treat UK like Spain is treating Catalonia? Part One

October 22, 2017 // 21 Comments

This is the line taken by former Cabinet Secretary Gus O’Donnell, a visceral anti-Brexiteer, now trying to intimidate us into the idea that a “deal” with the EU must be reached at all costs. The threat he is waving at us is that if there is “no deal”, all major businesses and banks will [...]
