Enemies of the people and democracy. This Remainer Parliament just doesn't care how much damage it does

After the Government was defeated in the final vote last night (the main motion as amended), Sir William Cash made the following point of order: "The right hon. Member for Twickenham (Sir Vince Cable) just said that this was a constitutional innovation. I think he may have rather underestimated the fact that it is in fact a constitutional revolution, and the House will come to regret it".  And regret it they will. When you play with fire, expect to get burned. Here are the names of the 30 Conservative MPs who voted for the Letwin amendment to wrest control of the Brexit process from the Government:  Continue reading

Parents to lose the right to opt-out of Relationships and Sex Education from 2020

This is a guest post by David Kurten AM.  Under cover of Brexit, the government is pushing through one of the most unpopular and destructive policies ever considered by a ‘Conservative’ government. It wants to make Relationships and Sex Education compulsory in schools from September 2020. Highly sexualised material is already available in hundreds of primary schools, which undermine traditional family values and confuses children about gender, but teaching these things will become compulsory in all schools if the government gets its way.

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. Monsieur le Président has spoken. He linked his tweet to an open letter published on the Élysée's website. In it he said: Continue reading

Is Facebook deliberately trying to close down the pages of Brexit supporting groups?

UPDATE: 3.00 pm Monday 4th February Thanks to a friend who passed our case on to a friend of his who works for Facebook, I have now discovered that we were hacked. A politically motivated hack without a doubt, and as other pro-Leave groups are experiencing difficulties, the hacking may be far and wide.    From Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns.  I ask the question because Facebook closed down the page for Leavers of Britain recently. Lucy Harris, the founder of Leavers of Britain, told me that she submitted a request for a review but then they locked it down permanently. She then kicked up a fuss and got it back. She shouldn't have had to kick up a fuss, but if you have ever tried to contact Facebook you will know how unresponsive it is.  Just over a week ago, I got a message via Facebook that a video of a speech by Julia Lopez MP I had posted on Better Off Out's (BOO) Facebook page had broken its rules. It asked me to contact them. I thought that was strange because although all footage on parliamentlive.tv is protected by parliamentary copyright, you are permitted to use the material as long as you abide by the terms and conditions. I had. And the content of Julia Lopez's speech hadn't broken any rules, either.  Continue reading

Next Tuesday's vote in the Commons could be more decisive than any we've had so far

The following is today's Brexit bulletin sent daily to all members of The Freedom Association. To join, please click here.  Theresa May's Plan B looked very similar to Plan A because it was Plan A in disguise. Not heavily disguised - there was just a little bit of tinsel around it to make it look slightly different. Next Tuesday, MPs will debate a Government motion that the House has considered the written statement laid before it yesterday. All very vanilla. This motion, of course, will be amended, and the amendments have already started rolling in.  Arch-Remainer Hilary Benn, the chairman of the Brexit Committee, has tabled an amendment calling for a series of indicative votes. He called for this in his question to the PM yesterday. Dominic Grieve, who can barely be described as a Conservative MP these days, has tabled an amendment that would give MPs the chance to back different Brexit options, including a second referendum. But the amendment that everyone is talking about is the one from Yvette Cooper, which is backed by people like Nick Boles, Oliver Letwin and Nicky Morgan.  Continue reading
