Tony Blair is determined to stop Brexit. We knew this months ago when we decided to set-up our 'Stop Blair' campaign. If you read the Daily Mail this morning, you can see that our former Prime Minister is at it again.
Speaking at the Concordia Annual Summit in New York, he described Brexit as "a self-harming act". When asked directly if he thinks it is possible to undo Brexit, he said he didn't know, but suggested that the vote could be reversed. And we know he has been doing his best to reverse it.
Writing in City AM this morning, Rory Broomfield, Director of The Freedom Association, argues that there is a case for the UK to lobby for Ireland's inclusion into the Five Eyes Alliances.Read more
The BBC has released a video today where young Brexiteers give their positive reasons for voting Leave in last year's referendum. Very refreshing.
One young woman described the EU as a "man-made bureaucratic, paper pushing hellhole" and that she is very proud that 17.4 million British people decided to stick their fingers up to the EU and walk away. Can't argue with that.Read more
When he was Prime Minister, Tony Blair was often criticised in the media for taking "freebie" holidays in exotic places around the world courtesy of the rich and famous. I don't know if Tony and Cherie paid for their recent trip to Malta, but they were certainly at some point during their visit the guests of Malta's Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat and his wife.
As reported in today's Sun newspaper, Mr. Muscat tweeted the following on Sunday morning:
If you live in Yorkshire, today is Yorkshire Day. I do, so I will wish you Happy Yorkshire Day! If you are in Switzerland, today is the Swiss National Day. And the Swiss have a lot to celebrate. They have a good working relationship with the European Union, but do not have Brussels' bureaucrats meddling in their laws. Switzerland is fourth on Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom - and the freest country in Europe.Read more
Fed up of whinging remoaners continuing to do the UK down whilst trying to scupper the chances of a full, clean Brexit?
Annoyed at the BBC and other ‘news’ channels/papers that look to ignore and distort the good news that has happened since the Brexit vote?
Well, here’s your chance to fight back with our Stop Blair Campaign. This campaign aims to tackle the negativity of Blair, Osborne and co by distributing ‘000s of leaflets across the UK.
We are aiming for an initial target of £50,000 to help us kick-start our leafleting efforts and fight back against the powers of gloom that are dominating news outlets at the moment.
To help, go to our donations page and give. We need as much help as we can to tackle the global organisations of Blair and co (along with their money pots). The more money you give, the more we can do. In the run up to last year’s referendum, we printed and distributed many millions of leaflets. Now the time has come to reboot, reframe and win it all again.
Kemi Badenoch MP: "I believe that the vote for Brexit was the greatest ever vote of confidence in the project of the United Kingdom"
Kemi Badenoch, the newly elected MP for Saffron Walden, gave her maiden speech in the House of Commons yesterday. And what a speech it was. Here is just one paragraph:
"I believe in free markets and free trade. But there is more to conservatism than economic liberalism—there is respect for the rule of law; personal responsibility; freedom of speech and of association; and opportunity through meritocracy. Those freedoms are being subtly eroded in an era when emotion and feeling are prized above reason and logic. It is those freedoms that I will seek to defend during my time in this House."
You have to feel for some people. For them, Brexit is an utter disaster. They moan about those ignorant working class people who voted to leave the EU last year. Those people living in the wastelands of the North and the Midlands are not educated; they don't understand the nuances; they don't understand the consequences. How could they? They are not as cultured as we are. They don't have second homes in France - they can't even speak French. We drink wine from some of the finest vineyards in the world - they drink strong lager. It really says it all.
Now the Remoaners have something else to moan about: a lack of au pairs.Read more
Writing for Comment Central, Rory Broomfield says that since last year’s EU Referendum, there has been good news in abundance, but try telling that to George Osborne and co.
Things happen in life that we might not like. We have to deal with them and move on. However, there are some events in life that people feel unable to let go. It seems that, to much of the press, Brexit is that issue.
In the House of Commons this morning, Nigel Evans, Conservative MP for Ribble Valley, asked Dr. Liam Fox MP, Secretary of State for International Trade, the following question:
"I think that the potential for trade with Commonwealth countries is very exciting—they are growing and strong economies—but every time I open a newspaper or listen to the radio or TV, the story is presented very negatively, as though it will be almost impossible for us to do these trade deals. Does the Secretary of State feel that that is wrong, and that it undermines the work he is doing?"
