Humanity, You're Fired!

(7) Comments | Posted 1 July 2016 | (15:35)

Much of human history has been defined by the fight for stuff. From the first cave dweller who raised a club and grunted, "Brute force says this is my stuff," to the feudal kings who announced, "Our most glorious Lord granted me dominion over all this stuff," to the contemporary...

How Brexit Has Crippled TTIP

(70) Comments | Posted 29 June 2016 | (09:00)

Reports coming out of Brussels and Washington suggest that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, otherwise known as TTIP, has been crippled, possibly killed, by Brexit. Informed sources suggest that TTIP will be parked until Britain's Article 50 negotiations have been completed and that there is now a possibility that...

Why the World Should Not Fear Brexit

(0) Comments | Posted 27 June 2016 | (09:13)

A fevered referendum has divided Britain and unsettled the world. I've previously criticised the tone of the Remain and Leave campaigns for stoking fear and hate, and we are now living with the consequences of their irresponsibility.

But there's a simple reason not to be upset:...

Why Britain Voted to Leave the European Union

(24) Comments | Posted 24 June 2016 | (05:37)

As I sit here in the early hours of Friday morning, listening to the referendum results coming in, it seems that those of us who have been campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union have pulled off what was seemingly impossible. There can be no denying that the establishment...

What You Need to Know About the EU's Finances

(2) Comments | Posted 23 June 2016 | (07:09)

Do you know that the EU has outstanding, unfunded liabilities of around €340 billion? No? Maybe it's naive of me, but I just assumed that since we're voting in a referendum on whether or not to stay in the EU, at the very least, voters would have been informed about...

Apprentice Cameron Summons 'Master of Lies', Darth Juncker

(0) Comments | Posted 15 June 2016 | (14:26)

I wasn't sure how to approach the news that 'Master of Lies' Jean-Claude Juncker has been drafted in by David 'Scourge of Pensioners' Cameron to make a major intervention in the referendum campaign next week. Why would the Prime Minister call in his boss, the President of the European Commission,...

If you're planning to vote remain, please take a moment to read this article. It may help you reconsider the most important political decision of your life. Most people I've spoken to say they're planning to vote leave, but of the few who say they'll vote remain, these have been...

Why Jeremy Corbyn Is Lying to Himself (and Us) About TTIP

(5) Comments | Posted 13 June 2016 | (18:51)

Jeremy Corbyn will never get the chance to veto TTIP. There, I've said it. Earlier in the referendum campaign he made a bold promise to veto TTIP, but it is a promise that he won't be given the opportunity to keep. Anyone versed in the history of the European Union,...

Cabinet Secretary Confirms Secret Brexit Plans

Last week I wrote an article alleging that Civil Service plans, which outline a safe, secure way for Britain to exit the EU, are circulating Whitehall. My article, which was widely shared online, prompted a number of messages on social media from people who accused me of being...

What the Government Isn't Telling Voters About its Plans to Leave the EU

(38) Comments | Posted 8 June 2016 | (12:15)

Both sides of the EU referendum campaign are behaving as though it were a general election. They are campaigning hard, fighting tooth and nail and using every political trick to try to win. But this isn't a general election, and if, as the polls suggest, there is a vote to...

Let's Solve the EU Problem Once and for All

(3) Comments | Posted 7 June 2016 | (12:20)

Britain's membership of the EU has become a very divisive subject and, without sensible action, that division will continue long after the referendum. In the event of a Remain vote, Ukip will be resurgent because none of the issues that have led to its rise will have been addressed. It...

How David Cameron Can Unite Britain on the EU

What if I told you that we could leave the European Union with little risk to our economy? That we could regain control of our borders without any risk to trade? What if I told you that we could reclaim democracy and the sovereignty of our parliament without withdrawing from...

Why EU Membership Leads to a Discriminatory Immigration Policy

(2) Comments | Posted 6 June 2016 | (09:56)

Over the weekend my piece on why the UK government turned away more than 2,700 non-EU nurses was widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook, but after getting into a conversation with someone on Twitter, it became obvious that I hadn't been as clear as I should...

Why the UK Government Turned Away 2,700 Nurses Last Year

(0) Comments | Posted 3 June 2016 | (10:50)

One of the most parroted reasons for the UK to remain in the EU is the fact that so many migrants work for the NHS and that our health service would collapse without them. This argument is utterly misguided. NHS staff shortages are being manufactured as a result of our...

Ten Reasons Why We Must Leave the EU

(6) Comments | Posted 1 June 2016 | (19:05)

When I recently told a colleague that I want the UK to leave the EU, she expressed considerable dismay that someone of my background - mixed-race, working class, comprehensive education - was lining up with far-right racists. Such a misguided view of the people who support Brexit does a disservice...

The EU: A Raw Deal for the Poor

(3) Comments | Posted 30 May 2016 | (22:19)

I recently wrote about the difficult subject of immigration, an issue that is so often used to silence debate on the EU. Instead of immigration, let's talk maths. According to the NHS Confederation, there are currently 7,875 GP practices in the UK, serving 64 million people....

The EU Theft of Democracy

My father was an immigrant. His father was from upper Egypt, of Sudanese heritage, and my paternal grandmother was of Syrian descent. If my father tried to settle in the UK today, his application would almost certainly fail. He lacked the funds to buy himself residency, didn't have any particularly...

Keep Your Democratic Power and Hold it Close

Tyrants rarely seize government, the people usually hand power to them. It might seem extreme to compare the EU to a tyrant, but if you're a 23-year-old in Greece, facing a generation of deprivation and unemployment, you might not think the comparison unjust. People have fought for hundreds of years...

The Death of the Political Establishment

(2) Comments | Posted 19 May 2016 | (10:37)

David Cameron, George Osborne, and all the other figures who have predicted war and disaster if we vote to leave the EU have done a great disservice to the institution of government. They have embarked on a zealot's crusade to browbeat the British public into staying in an undemocratic political...
