Political correctness – the new extremism? Part 2

October 30, 2017 // 18 Comments

[Ed: Part 1 of this essay can be read here] What is the first question asked when a baby is born?  What is the sex? Closely followed by how much does he or she weigh?  If it is that important at birth, at what point do parents decide that their child is no longer happy and would like to [...]

Political correctness – the new extremism?

October 29, 2017 // 28 Comments

When I survey the battered wreckage of my country after the scourge of political correctness (PC) has wrought its havoc, it is hard not to despair.  PC is now so out of control that we find ourselves in a situation where nothing is sacred, from cultural icons to even what is written in our [...]

My Statement Regarding the Support4The Family Survey

August 10, 2017 // 101 Comments

Until this week it had been a pleasure to be in this leadership contest for UKIP, which I joined partly because of its commitment to freedom of speech, truth, honesty and its stand against political correctness. On Sunday 6th June, I completed a leaders’ questionnaire for Support4The Family (see [...]

Writers’ Corner

July 22, 2017 // 15 Comments

Continuing with our weekly collection of quotes, today’s piece is dedicated to one writer only: George Orwell Over the years, many ordinary people have said that the media and politicians seem to have taken Orwell’s “1984” as manual, not as warning. George Orwell died in 1950, one year [...]

Immigration and why Control Is Essential – Part I

May 5, 2017 // 10 Comments

This written offering is not about immigrants. It’s about Immigration. A simple word which engenders an increasingly emotional response when mentioned in a political or social context. The process of immigration when broached in conversation can attract accusations of racism, xenophobia, [...]

UKIP’s Future

April 8, 2017 // 26 Comments

The question that I’m most frequently asked is: now that Article 50 has been triggered by the Conservative Prime Minister May, what is the point of UKIP? For decades we have been governed by complete and utter cowards who, when it comes to confronting harsh realities, prefer to indulge in [...]

On Christian Values, Islam, and The Police

February 20, 2017 // 13 Comments

As I read  the early morning papers about the riots in France, the shooting dead by police of a guy trying to attack a child rapist (subsequently given a suspended sentence) and other sad news I had fleeting thought: “Forgive them for they know not what they do”. My parents were Methodists [...]

Treat Everybody Equally!

January 8, 2017 // 18 Comments

I’m moderately anti-death penalty, largely because I don’t fully trust governments both present and future. If we lived in a perfect society, with a permanent guarantee of a fair judicial system, then I might well support the death penalty – but then, in such a mythical utopia, it [...]

Freedom of Speech and Geert Wilders

December 12, 2016 // 20 Comments

“Freedom of Speech is a right, but…”. Err, no. No buts! There will be much written about the conviction of Geert Wilders in Holland on Friday last week, on December 9th, 2016. For those who are unfamiliar with Geert Wilders: he is the founder and leader of the Dutch ‘Party for [...]

Why did we bother to fight?

November 12, 2016 // 10 Comments

Yesterday was Armistice Day, and as we remember those who fell in war, the questions that vex me more with each passing year are, “Why did so many give so much? If they could see the current state of the world, would they still do it again?” We expended much blood and treasure in defeating a [...]
