Brexit Already a Failure!

BY ALEXIA JAMES It seems that the diehard Remainers have already decided that Brexit was a waste of time and has resulted in abject failure – less than a month after the UK’s exit from the transition period. At the weekend Michel Barnier was busy painting a false picture of EU unity and pretending that now “we all see the cost of Brexit” – again, … Continue reading Brexit Already a Failure!

UK Food Standards Sacrosanct

BY DANIEL KAWCZYNSKI Here in the United Kingdom, we are rightly proud of our world-leading approach to animal welfare and food safety. Not only does this offer peace of mind to millions of us here in Britain, but they are a real selling point for British produce around the world. As we prepare to leave the European Union, Parliament is taking back control of our … Continue reading UK Food Standards Sacrosanct

Why are Remainers so Hostile to the UK Japan FTA?

BY DOUGLAS BULLOCH Hailed by Jean-Claude Juncker as “a message to the world about the future of open and fair trade” and sometimes dubbed the “cheese for cars” deal, the EU Japan Economic Partnership Agreement was heralded in 2019 as an enormously significant evolution for the future of world trade then descending into confrontation between the US and China. Why then, a mere eighteen months … Continue reading Why are Remainers so Hostile to the UK Japan FTA?

Article 50 Illegality a Sideshow

BY JAMIE FOSTER Having entered the transition stage of the Article 50 process Boris Johnson will now negotiate Britain’s future relationship with the EU. This stage will come to an end on the 31st December this year at which point the UK will officially leave the EU and its regulations. It is Boris Johnson’s aim to have secured a trade deal with the EU by … Continue reading Article 50 Illegality a Sideshow

The Dwindling Sect of Rejoin

BY EFFIE DEANS I was sleeping when we left the EU. It is a matter of complete indifference to me if a fifty pence coin turns up in my change marking the event. If something about being European trends on Twitter I feel slightly amused that some people might think that such things matter. Symbolism doesn’t matter. Reality matters. It’s already clear that nothing bad … Continue reading The Dwindling Sect of Rejoin

The Great Brexhibition

BY ERNIE WARRENDER As Small Business Spokesperson for UKIP for many a long-suffering year, it has been my privilege to witness Brexit emerge as minority view to become the People’s choice. I’ve always known we can do things better on these islands without others’ meddling and governing us from outside. We should be showing the world how a competent nation state operates while being allowed … Continue reading The Great Brexhibition

Up Yours Townies

BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Did Thursday’s vote truly mark a seismic shift in British politics or merely reflect one that had occurred long ago? For now we bask in the spoils of victory, most prized amongst them being the look on Rumplecuckskin, John Bercow, as it dawned on him that his dream of a second referendum would remain forever thus. Oh to see hopelessness so visceral … Continue reading Up Yours Townies

The Winner Takes it All

BY DAVID EYLES Background My analyses of Conservative held constituencies was conducted in July 2018. The first part of the two articles is here. The second part is here. These two articles, and the analyses behind them, looked solely at the Tories by examining each constituency and then interrogating them with a very simple model to test their resilience to attack by a determined and organised UKIP. … Continue reading The Winner Takes it All

It’s the Russians!

BY PAUL NEWALL Why is it that when faced with certain failure politicians these days scream “Russia”? The Democrats in the US tried and failed to oust Trump with their Russian collusion antics and now losers like Dominic Grieve are forced to pull the Russian collusion card over here. Recent tall tales in obtuse publications about the owner of the Evening Standard, Evgeny Lebedev, being … Continue reading It’s the Russians!

Adieu People’s Vote

BY ALEXIA JAMES Such a tragedy that the People’s Vote campaign is disintegrating before our eyes. Is it possible to think of a more noble and democratic campaign in the history of these islands? A campaign that attracted such an array of political stardust? Is that the end of those wonderful marches? No more splendid placards or exaggerated crowd statistics?  I do fear for Supergirl’s … Continue reading Adieu People’s Vote

More Concessions Required

CSM EDITORIAL The decision taken by the Brexit Party to not stand in the 317 seats won by the Conservatives in 2017 is a big step forward towards Brexit and something this magazine has campaigned for of late: “It seems nonsensical that people will vote for the Brexit Party in seats where they will split the vote and let a Liberal Democrat or Labour candidate … Continue reading More Concessions Required

Localism is Best?

BY PHIL DEEKS Imagine a group of countries, each with varying histories and cultures (some linked, some not), each with distinct economies (some developed, some not) and each with their own domestic concerns. Is it wise for them to follow the same monetary and social policies as each other? I posed this question on Twitter to a follower group of a left/liberal bent. 85% of … Continue reading Localism is Best?
