In Defence of Investment Banking

November 2, 2013 // 4 Comments

Firstly, let me begin by confessing that I am an investment banker, which is quite possibly the worst thing that one can admit these days.  We are told by the media and the politicians that we are all a bunch of reckless and testosterone-fuelled gambling addicts whose ‘casino’ trading and [...]

Unite The Right? Unite What “Right”?

November 2, 2013 // 5 Comments

In an updated and expanded version of his article first published at BogPaper on 23rd October, UKIP-inclined Michael St George outlines why he finds Toby Young’s Unite The Right campaign insupportable  I have a huge regard for Toby Young. I share his robust brand of classical-liberalism, [...]

UKIP must speak up about Female Genital Mutilation

November 1, 2013 // 17 Comments

  On the UKIP forum recently, there was a thread entitled “Islamisation of the UK” which sparked a lengthy debate and was eventually locked by a Moderator for ‘overheating’.  In the course of this debate, the subject of Female Genital Mutilation was raised: how it is happening [...]

Is it possible to be a ‘Euro-Patriot’?

October 31, 2013 // 2 Comments

The British, (especially the English), tend to see borders as something permanent and immutable.  We too easily delude ourselves that our “blessed plot” is limited only by “the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house”, and forget that we have a [...]

The sorry tale of Douglas Carswell’s conflicted conscience

October 31, 2013 // 2 Comments

Uniting the Eurosceptics

October 30, 2013 // 6 Comments

On Monday, I wrote about the reasons to feel optimistic about Britain’s future. Put simply, this is a Great country. So, although we are currently sliding down the world rankings across a range of measures – education, manufacturing output, living standards –  there is no reason [...]

A Northerner’s View of HS2

October 29, 2013 // 1 Comment

And so the sorry tail of the HS2 – HS3 project drags on. Again today there has been another downward revision of the ‘benefits’ such a line would bring, and yet again the political elite will ignore it. I write from the perspective of a Northerner when I say: only very rarely do I need to go [...]

The Human Cost of Labour’s Education Policies

October 29, 2013 // 5 Comments

Vocational and hands-on jobs for younger people like myself seem to be becoming a thing of the past. Throughout my Labour-led schooling  I was told that going to university is the best thing you can do – the only option. Never once was something like construction or joinery offered to us as [...]
