EU talks should be suspended. Read our joint letter in the Daily Telegraph

The siege of London: a capital at odds with its country over Brexit

The following was written for this series of essays, published in January of this year, by Daniel Moylan, a former adviser to Boris Johnson as Mayor of London, and who could take charge of Brexit policy if Boris becomes Prime Minister.  London has long shrugged off the brooding sense of resentment other parts of the country sometimes feel at its dominance of national political and economic life.

Macron reminds us why voting to Leave the EU was the right decision

Pres. Emmanuel Macron has an ego the size of France. You would think that he has enough problems at home without wading in elsewhere, but this arrogant man just can't help himself.  "Citizens of Europe, I am addressing you because time is of the essence", is what he posted on Twitter.
