The Peculiar “Far-Right” Smear

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It’s funny how everyone exhibiting political soundness has suddenly become “far right”. Apparently, more than half the country are now “far right”, racist, hard Brexiteers. Those, for example, who express support for the populist Italian Government’s logical stance on immigration are supporting a “far right” regime.

UNITE is a Con

Despite the prattling from Owen Jones et al, Labour did surprisingly poorly, and the Conservatives remain the largest party of … Continue reading What Next for the Conservative Party?

Leave British Soldiers Alone

BY JAMIE FOSTER It appears that the government is backing away from an amnesty for service personnel who may be accused of committing offences during the Northern Irish troubles. Senior Tory MPs had proposed a statute of limitations to prevent anyone having served during that time being prosecuted.
