WATCH: Former Met Commissioner, Lord Hogan-Howe, voted for Brexit. Find out why

Lord Hogan-Howe, the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner, gave a great speech in the House of Lords yesterday explaining why he voted for Brexit. If you think that the UK's security is at risk when we leave the EU, listen to what Lord Hogan-Howe has to say about it. Here's an extract:

"Concerns have been expressed about our future security, but our security is built on a strong military, intelligence and policing infrastructure. However, I argue that maintaining all these does not require the UK to be a member of the EU. In defence, our military strength depends on our own investments and innovation, together with those of our allies. Our major military bulwark is NATO. It does not rely on Europe but it does rely on America."

Gove is right. We do risk becoming an outdated "VHS economy"

According to the Daily Telegraph, Michael Gove has said that Britain risks becoming an outdated "VHS economy" if it accepts calls by big business for the UK to be closely aligned with the EU after Brexit. He's right. The CBI is about as corporatist as it gets. Those big businesses who run the CBI love all the rules and regulations cascading from Brussels. It prevents many rivals from entering the marketplace. The CBI wants barriers to free trade. The CBI is a 1980s car phone in a smartphone age.

The CBI, of course, does have its supporters in Government. Philip Hammond being its main cheerleader. Here's a section from today's Telegraph:

Tony Blair once again calls for another EU referendum.

Stop_Blair_Image.pngIt's fair to say that Tony Blair was not on top form this morning during his interview on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. John Humphreys was all over him like a rash, pointing out the inconsistencies of his arguments and reminding him of an important word: democracy. Blair didn't even rule out a third referendum if the second one didn't go his way.

Remoaners remain on the wrong side of history - we should continue campaigning for a clean Brexit

Over the Christmas and New Year period we saw yet more delusional displays of remoanerism by numerous Lords and other entitled individuals. They still don't understand the EU and what it is turning into. We need to continue the fight for a clean Brexit, argues Rory Broomfield

The moral case for Brexit

The case against the EU is clear and the intellectual case for Brexit is overwhelming. How can the entitled elite justify their ignorance?

Lord Heseltine hates this country so much that he says a Trotskyist government led by Jeremy Corbyn is a happier prospect than Brexit. This ignoble Lord is only the latest in a long procession of prominent people ganging up to smother Brexit and so demonstrate their contempt for the expressed views of the majority of British people who voted Leave. More people voted Leave in the Referendum than have ever voted for anything in our country. Still the elite establishment is doing everything in its power and connivance to keep us in the failed EU. The civil service to a man is against our getting out and they are in cahoots with the Brussels bureaucrats who are desperate to keep us in. The elite - with its culture of entitlement - has joined forces with the drones, luvvies and celebs in an aggressive putsch to deny the declared wishes of the people.

Will you help us stop Tony Blair wrecking Brexit?

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.

BBC talks to young Brexiteers - and it's positive

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.

Tony Blair plots with Malta's PM

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:
