Unless they start demonstrating Conservative values, the Tories will lose the next election to an unapologetic Communist

The bravado shown by Comrade Corbyn at the recent Labour Party conference shows that Labour believes that it can win the next election. The show they put on was so persuasive that Corbyn is the bookies favourite to be next PM. The problem with this situation is clear; socialism doesn’t work, and inflicting a hard-core…

Jacob Rees-Mogg would be perfect for PM, but Needs Classical Liberal Support

Jacob Rees-Mog has caused outrage in the ranks of the so-called conservative party, and the media for telling the truth. Rees-Mogg, a father of 6, and surprise internet sensation, made his views on abortion and gay marriage clear on a television show with Piers Morgan and Susannah Reid. Rees-Mogg does not agree with abortion under…

Young Socialists are being ‘Red Pilled’ – When They Awake There’ll be No Going Back

The staunchest conservatives I know; Sir Roger Scruton, Thomas Sowell, and Peter Hitchens started out as many young people do, as socialists mindset.

Why is Socialism still so popular?

It is 2017, 100 years since the Russian revolution. The UK general election results are in, leaving Britain with a hung parliament just days before the start of negotiations on exiting the EU. This wasn’t supposed to happen. Theresa May was supposed to increase the Tory majority, and to build a stronger mandate for Brexit…

Government is Right to Fear Bitcoin; it will Remove State Monopoly Power

Government has more than its fair share of power and money. Rather than viewing the government as distinct from big business, I view them as similar beasts, it’s just that government is funded by taxpayers, while big business is funded by government and private enterprise.

Making Sense of the Brexit Fallout

On the 23rd June 2016, the British people showed courage and fortitude; put two fingers up to the establishment and voted to leave the EU. Despite what the sore losers in the press would have you believe, the majority voted to leave the EU in order to restore sovereign power to the UK; brexit was…

Free Trade would make the UK Better Off by 4% of GDP

The country is currently in a flap about securing a trade deal with the EU. Why? Do we really need a trade deal with anyone, or are we just asking for one because we think they are necessary? 

Brexit – The Right Decision

As the dust settles after the Brexit fallout, many of those who voted to leave are experiencing voters remorse. There may be some apprehension, but we who voted against the stable but dysfunctional EU have done something brave and rather beneficial, not just for the UK, but also for Europe and the World.

A Vote to Remain in the EU is a Vote Against Democracy

I don’t know about you, but I am not a big fan of bullies. I don’t like other people being bullied, and I don’t much like being bullied myself. My major concern with the EU, and the primary reason that I cannot vote for it, no matter how much I love our European neighbours (I…

Brexit is a stand off between Conservatives and Socialists

I’ve been wanting to write a piece about Brexit for a while now, above and beyond my strong feelings about the British fishing industry which the Brussels Common Fisheries Policy has all but destroyed, but I’ve not found much time recently to put fingers to keys. The arrival of the young pup has taken up…

It’s a Fishy Excuse – But I’m Out on Europe!

Stay in the EU, or leave? What difference does it make? Not a great deal you might think. I’m sure it won’t make much difference to my life, but as someone with an overarching interest in self government, there’s simply no way that I would vote to have some far off bureaucrat making decisions about…

GDP: A Great Distraction for Politicians

For many years, governments have focused upon GDP, but with our current global demographics collapse , GDP growth is no longer a relevant means to measure economic health, and it’s time politicians chose a more appropriate yardstick to beat themselves over the head with. Or perhaps it’s time for politicians to acknowledge their powerlessness to…

Why do we Fear a Banking Collapse?

Banks go bankrupt, that’s why there is a word for such things. But most of the banking and financial world won’t hear of it. If you cannot repay your debts, you can keep restructuring your debt, but this is only prolonging the inevitable. Default will come eventually, and you will be required to give away…

The Proper Party Manifesto – a Party Manifesto for Guaranteed Election Success

On this, the day of the 2015 general election, I am interested in what will unfold over the next 24 hours, and in honour of all my earnest politician bashing, I’ve put my money where my mouth is, and written my own proper party manifesto. It’s called the proper party. Because we believe in doing…

To Vote or Not to Vote, Where is the Alternative?

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete – R. Buckminster Fuller
