BBC EU bias ignored in the Lords

Lord Pearson of Rannoch, a Freedom Association Council member, asked the following question in the House of Lords yesterday: "To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the Civitas publication The Brussels Broadcasting Corporation? and of the BBC's coverage of Brexit, set against its new Charter and guidelines."

Support Blighty UK Cafe

I want to visit the Blighty UK Cafe at Finsbury Park. It sounds like a great place. It is decorated with model spitfires and has a statue of Winston Churchill. You can even drink your tea out of a Churchill mug, and one of the breakfasts on offer is the "Winston". If you are hungry, now is the time to skip the rest of this paragraph, because for £9.90 you will be served a traditional full English. The "Winston" comprises of British bacon, 2 fried eggs, Cumberland sausage, Yorkshire black pudding, bone marrow, tomatoes, mushrooms, red onion, thyme, homemade baked beans, and sourdough toast. If you are a vegetarian, you can try the "Clementine", and if you are a vegan, you can tuck into the "Ghandi". The website states that they are serious about coffee and all the beans are sourced from Commonwealth countries - Rwanda, Kenya, India, Tanzania, Papua New Guinea and Malawi. What isn't there to like about this cafe? Continue reading

Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin

The following is a guest post by the Rev Dr Peter Mullen, Hon. Chaplain of The Freedom Association.  The writing has been on the wall for Theresa May for a long time. And the words form the same judgement that was delivered to Belshazzar, as recorded in Daniel 5:25: Thou art weighed in the balances and found wanting.  Mrs May, the most useless home secretary and the most incompetent prime minister we’ve had since Methuselah was a boy, is clearly at the end of her tether. She is fragile and histrionic. She cried on election night when it was borne in on her that she is so pathetic she couldn’t even see off Jeremy Corbyn. In the Brexit negotiations she appeared schizoid and frantic. She talked tough for ten minutes, then wept and pleaded. Naturally, her tormentors the apparatchiks Juncker and Barnier – and of course Monsieur le-vanity-case Macron and Frau Fuhrer – played on May’s mood swivels to perfection. They kissed, cuddled, flattered and cajoled her, then they shouted and threatened  Their enjoyment of her tortured hopelessness was excruciating to watch. She conceded their every demand and called it her triumph. Continue reading
