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 t...
I'd hate to be a Negative Nancy, or a fun sponge of any description, but there is no way in hell the Leave camp are going to win the EU referendum. Like with Scottish independence and the Alternative Vote, we will opt for the status quo...
If Plaid Cymru does not seize leadership now, it will be harder for them to do so in the future. Likewise, if people vote against a Brexit, the SNP and Ukip lose the opportunity to use the results as a platform to launch their next electoral campaign on. If people vote to remain in the UK, the SNP and Ukip will have to play on the par with traditional parties, where the asymmetry of power is significantly tilted against them.
People will try and tell us that this referendum deals with issues that are far too complex for the average person to understand. I believe that we actually face a very simple question: whether or not we believe in democracy? If we continue to find ourselves ruled by people we can't vote for, who are making laws we can't change, we will only have ourselves to blame.
Nigel wins debates. He trounced Nick Clegg in the televised In/Out debate two years ago. He's the most experienced debater the Leave campaign has on the EU issue. He has a depth of knowledge about the EU that others don't. Winning the debate is in itself important; more important than Nigel's polling amongst undecided voters.
When I was at school, the playground was often the scene of 'cussing matches' which, for the uninitiated, were verbal jousts that involved two or more children hurling insults at each other until one of the kids left the field of combat crying, or a fistfight broke out.
If Labour does not work to reverse this trend it could cease to be a national party and face the possibility of never forming a government again. Labour must listen and act quickly to avoid this potentially irreversible catastrophe.
Now many people will be undecided on how to vote in their elections today, I was once a swing voter myself before I found UKIP, so I know how it feels. I'm writing this today though to tell you why you should lend us in UKIP your vote. It doesn't matter if you're voting in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland or England, UKIP it a truly national party that represents the whole of Britain and here's why...
On Thursday 23rd June the people of Britain will vote on our membership of the European Union, an issue that will shape the future of our country more so than an any other issue. It has never been more important to make sure that you're registered to vote. I won't tell you how to vote but I will present the arguments to support staying in the European Union. I am of the opinion that the benefits far outweigh any perceived negatives.
Munching down fish and chips while enjoying a pint of Broadside is a must-do when visiting Southwold. Even if your face is more battered by the wind than your cod is by the fryer; and even if you're soggier from the rain than your chips are from the vinegar. In fact it all tends to add to the whole experience.
If Remain wins, there are sure to be bruised egos and red eyes. That doesn't mean Britain will stay divided. We can pull together if the victors give credit to Leave's fears and hopes, and take material action to address them.
So my message to Obama is clear: don't try to speak on behalf of ALL the American people on the issue of Britain's membership of the EU. Like many members of the international ruling establishment you have your view of big government solutions but many in the United States see the advantages for America from being able to form a partnership with a Britain which is based on it being an independent nation state.
So welcome back Nigel Farage: the face of acceptable bigotry and daytime drinking. It looks like we missed you.
From 2017, the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus will be examined. There's much to admire about the principle - more problem solving, a little more rigour...
Today, no city in the world is safe from terrorist acts. The criminals only need to get past our security measures once to score their propaganda victory. But it is absolutely clear now that in the area of intelligence sharing and security, Brexit is unlikely to have any negative results and is far more likely to have many positive ones.
We actually need a sensible, well thought out, considered response to the threat of terrorism. Sadly, that is impossible in the culture of intolerance caused by those who put political correctness above our national security.
