When Boris Johnson spoke last week about the reality and necessity of inequality, lefty critics unsurprisingly cried elitism in their ongoing bid to f...
I gather that Theresa May is an Anglican and a regular churchgoer. One hopes she bonded with her God yesterday. But no matter how many prayers she offered up, they will not wipe away her responsibility for this shameful and disgusting act.
As I sit here in front of the computer screen, looking at the names of the thousands of people who have signed the petition started by my friend, Andrew Hall, I can't help thinking about the reasons why so many people have taken time from their daily lives to contact me, sign the petition and share my story with their friends and family.
Our absolute focus must be on nurturing and fuelling this recovery based on lessons learnt from the past. Any distraction from a laser-sharp focus on recovery is at best a set-back and at worst a threat to sustaining the momentum necessary to get us, and keep us, out of danger.
What to make of the Attorney General's comments in The Telegraph? Corruption is certainly a growing problem in the UK - but TI's research has found no evidence to link it to immigrant communities.
We are in great need of the other story of Britain. The one where millions of us get on with our lives and get on with each other. That everyday local experience provides the building blocks of our national experience. It should no longer remain invisible. The story of new neighbors who have become true friends has never been told, now is the time to start telling it.
While Jack Straw may feel this was a policy blunder from his party, I do not believe this to be such a clear cut issue. It has been shown on countless occasions that immigrants coming to the UK bring a tangible profitable contribution to the economy.
I really miss the days when the worst we thought Jeremy Hunt could do to the NHS was privatise it. At least you knew what you were getting with privatisation. But what Mr Hunt is doing, incredibly, manages to be worse.
Immigration is a difficult topic matter to discuss. Even though most people accept that our economic and political systems would fail if there wasn't a policy to control immigration, many people have many different ideas on where the line should be drawn.
Unless the terms and benefits of self-government outside the EU are spelled out in detail, the debate over Britain's relationship with the EU will remain fundamentally impoverished. If UKIP wants to prove its credentials as a serious party the onus is on it to actually set out its vision of a self-governing country. Empty rhetoric about self-government is not a substitute for informed policy debate.
Paul Sykes has made a lot of money - benefiting from free trade to China by selling them our old buses, playing a key role in the early days of British internet, as well as flogging land to the developers of Meadowhall shopping centre near Sheffield....
Immigration is a subject that polarizes opinion, and rightly so, for there are really obvious pros and cons behind this deeply divisive political discussion. Whatever the answer is, whichever end of the political spectrum you abide to, there are thousands of Brits like me, who have immigration to thank.
Researchers have found repeatedly, in multiple studies, that migration has had a range of positive effects on the UK economy. It has boosted Gross Domestic Product; lowered inflation, in turn helping to keep interest rates lower than otherwise; and there has been a significant net gain to the UK budget.
It's easy to say that immigration has been in the news this week, but in modern Britain, immigration is always in the news. An Englishman's home is, w...
It was a story that we have heard many times before, a grim and bitter tale of British taxpayers fleeced of their hard-earned cash by cunning dark-skinned folk, a story calculated and carefully framed to produce head-shaking, hysterical laughter of the 'lunatics-have-taken-over-the-asylum' variety...
On 3 October 2013, a boat carrying an estimated 500 migrants, many of them Eritreans under the age of 40, capsized less than one kilometer from the island of Lampedusa, Italy. It is estimated that just 155 passengers survived. A week later in the early hours of October 11, another boat was capsized 60 kilometers off the same island killing another 30 people.
