FALLOUT

October 7, 2017 // 41 Comments

A week is indeed a very long time in politics. Sometimes a day is even longer, especially in British politics. In this past week we’ve watched the Tory Party starting to unravel, with the political destruction of Theresa May now a distinct possibility. That whole performance was very lucky for [...]

LABOUR’S DUPLICITY

September 16, 2017 // 13 Comments

A week is a long time in politics, as the German agent Harold ‘von’ Wilson once observed. Not so long ago the media were asking whether there was any ongoing role for UKIP after the referendum. Labour had successfully wooed working class voters in the Midlands and the North by promising to [...]

The Shambolic EU Negotiations

August 19, 2017 // 11 Comments

I knew and admired the late Jimmy Goldsmith, who was aware by the way that his cancer had been induced. He was a smart cookie.

Today’s letters run the full gamut of issues important to our readers.

Eleven candidates. Eleven!! I must admit, when the confirmed applicants for the UKIP leadership post finally appeared in an email yesterday evening, I briefly thought Steve Crowther and Piers Wauchope had accidentally inserted the names of a UKIP charity football team by mistake! In truth, it was a [...]

Looking back – looking forward: an analysis. Part 1

July 1, 2017 // 1 Comment

Looking back over the years since I first voted in 1979  for Hugh Frazer in the GE (Conservative – Stafford), I cannot remember a time when the UK has seemed to be so close to  the edge of becoming  unstable. In a matter of weeks Theresa May has transformed from a confident “strong [...]

What should UKIP talk about first?

June 24, 2017 // 11 Comments

Aside from the terrorist atrocities, and once Labour had agreed to seek a full Brexit, the main determining features of the General Election, which started out, ostensibly, as a sitting Prime Minister wanting to strengthen her Brexit negotiating hand, were mostly financial. Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour [...]

The Great Patriotic General Election with the Unpatriotic Result

June 11, 2017 // 27 Comments

The 2017 General Election was Tess’s to lose and she tried her best. Endlessly repeating the ‘trust strong and stable ME’ mantras whilst avoiding anything of real substance such as exactly what ‘Brexit Means Brexit’ or ‘Enough is Enough’ actually means in terms of objectives, [...]
