When UKIP was founded over twenty-four years ago, the people in the room did so with two main objectives: to make UKIP a force in national politics, and to bring about the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. The second was dependent on the first.  Following the General Election in 2015 we [...]

December 27, 2017 // 22 Comments

On that warm summer’s day in June 2016, as we waited up all night in nervous anticipation of the Brexit referendum results, we were thrilled to hear David Dimbleby awkwardly state we’d triumphed.

The Illusion of Democracy

November 22, 2017 // 21 Comments

After my last article Trumped? I felt there were still some points that I wanted to make, so here it is. Firstly I’ll look at the world of marketing, something that I know a fair bit about. I’m sorry to all those of you that know this stuff, but I’ve always found that many people are [...]

The Worrying Rise of Forced Conversion and Political Violence

August 25, 2017 // 18 Comments

The images of political violence in America over the last few days worry me greatly. They worry me most because I can see the seeds of such political violence re-emerging in the UK.

July 21, 2017 // 28 Comments

Continuing from the first article on leadership,where we are now. Let us just consider, for a moment, the reality of our position. We have lost support dramatically and the rate of this exodus is increasing. Ironically, the only ‘cliff edge’ associated with Brexit, is the one our members are [...]

I’d like to tell you a story, but it has a point to it, so please bear with me. Some years ago, I was the owner of a quite desirable beach-front property in a sought after location (not in the UK). I was planning to leave the country for a few years and so decided to sell the property. I’m a [...]

May 30, 2017 // 17 Comments

The other week I watched an old film on television called “The Winslow Boy”.  It was a re-make of an earlier version of the film, which was taken from a Terence Rattigan play.  I suspect that most readers have heard of the film and know the story, but, for those who don’t, here is a quick [...]

The New Politicians

February 14, 2017 // 5 Comments

I am sure that we have all sat around a table talking with friends and relatives and had that conversation “if I was the prime minister I would…” I am sure the same can be said for many Americans too as they ponder the wondrous things they could if they were the President of those United [...]
