Since May's general Election, there's one question I've been asked again and again - how did the polls get it so wrong that an apparent photo finish was actually a Conservative outright majority, an outcome that some forecasters had given a zero chance of happening?
The bottom line here is this: the only way we can control immigration into the UK is to take back control of our borders. This means we have to stop our open-ended EU free movement of people obligations to potentially hundreds of millions of EU migrants. The only way we can do this is to leave the EU.
The Autumn Statement is a ritualistic sham. The Chancellor's statement to Parliament gives the illusion of accountability. In fact, Parliament is powerless to do anything but rubber stamp his plans. Unsustainable spending is possible because there are no real checks on the Treasury's dominion over taxpayers' money. The solution is to empower Parliament.
I'm a trustee of Water For Africa, an innovative charity that trains local people to provide sustainable water supplies for their communities. As gra...
We don't have to like Putin to realise that a united front against people who rape children and behead Christians is the best idea for a safer world. We joined forces with Stalin to defeat Hitler because he was an immediate threat and that pragmatic attitude is what we need now.
I think Jeremy Corbyn is just completely out of touch with the feelings of the general public. I suspect that he's trying to make a point, but putting it across in completely the wrong way. I think he's trying to say that governments shouldn't kill people needlessly - even if they're terrorists - if you could safely capture those people alive.
I entered politics because I wanted to fight and campaign against the ongoing suppression of our nation's freedoms from the European Union, yet here we see the vital freedom of privacy from the state is being undermined and disregarded by our own UK government.
From claiming agricultural subsidies for a motocross track as 'arable land' to the curious case of the non-functioning sewerage system in Greece, this year's Court of Auditors' report shows that the European Union remains rotten to the core.
Just as the Scottish result changed the face of British politics, so too will the vote in 2017. As we sail towards a particularly turbulent year, party heavyweights on all sides of the House will want to batten down the hatches and hold tight. Ukip have the most to lose, but for their leader, who has spent his life campaigning for withdrawal, I doubt the survival of the party is even his top priority right now.
Cameron appears to be positioning himself firmly on the In side of the EU referendum without saying so explicitly. Not only this, but he is using his prominence as head of government to try to outmanoeuvre the main Out players.
David Cameron is fairly clear about many things. For example, he hates The Human Rights Act. He loves dropping bombs on Syria. More importantly, he's...
A couple of weeks in, and the similarities between the Leave and Remain camps are as as striking as the differences. Both are quick to underline their patriotism; both go out of their way to emphasise British strength. No one, not even in the 'remain' camp, seems particularly fond of the European Union. And - perhaps most importantly - both campaigns are profoundly divided.
The outright rejection of you based on your race is tempered not by more understanding men, but by attraction to you based on your race, or more specifically, based on pre-conceived notions of what your race has to offer: Big cocks, thug-like masculinity, animalistic lust. When you're strong, you ignore it. When you're desperate, you capitulate.
Over the past few days we've seen the emergence of a debate over which person should be the leader of the 'Leave' the European Union campaign. This media inspired distraction means that the whole EU Referendum debate has got off on the wrong foot for, in the end, this event not about personalities but about real issues that affect the British people...
The Conservative Party's message about the need for controlled immigration at their annual conference is both laughable and wholly deceiving... The Tories set meaningless targets, time and time again and then use a PR bluster like this speech to camouflage their failures.
Leave.eu are in the know about the chaos of leaving and benefits of staying in Europe. During a BBC report of the freshly launched Leave.eu on Thursday evening, this shot from the campaign's offices caught the viewer's eye...
