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

UKIP Leadership: Hustings are a Must!

August 12, 2017 // 56 Comments

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 [...]

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 [...]

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour [...]

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, [...]

All so obvious with hindsight

June 11, 2017 // 17 Comments

Why did we even have an election?  Well I think it was because of Nicola Sturgeon. She stated time and again how she had a mandate from the Scottish people but Theresa May did not have a mandate at all.  Furthermore Theresa was hamstrung by the manifesto of the David Cameron administration that [...]

Election Comment by a PPC

June 10, 2017 // 8 Comments

[Ed: most of this article was written before Thursday, more observations were added by the author after Thursday.] Having stood as a PPC in Barrow and Furness, probably for the last time, I have to agree with the voices that point out that the Party leadership absolutely matters in National [...]

Let the Blame Games Begin!

June 10, 2017 // 35 Comments

After Polling Day on Thursday, after Friday when the meaning of what happened started to sink in, the official political pundits and of course all our journalists in the MSM are working flat out to provide us with their spin. Let’s not forget the extra-party organisations such as ‘Momentum’ [...]
