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. After all, the capital, with over eight million people, is a social eco-system of its own, caught up in its own affairs and confident that its net contribution to the Government coffers (over £26 billion a year) is sufficient answer to any regional chippiness.

On the anniversary of the referendum, Peer urges ‘negative’ Government to start talking about the benefits of Brexit

News Release

22nd June 2018

On the eve of the second anniversary of the EU referendum, the independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon has criticised the Government for its: “negativity and failure to make clear the many benefits the UK will enjoy outside of the European Union.  The British people had a vision of a positive future outside of the EU, when they bravely voted for Brexit on 23rd June 2016.  It is a about time the Government did too!”

Lord Stoddart said: “It really is very disappointing that it has to be the American Ambassador who is reminding us of what a great country we are and of the optimistic future we can look forward to outside of the EU.  He is absolutely right to be dismayed at the defeatism we, as a nation, are exhibiting towards Brexit. It is high time that our rather negative Government, which seems to regard the negotiations with the EU as some sort of damage limitation exercise, started being a cheer leader for the benefits of leaving the EU, not least the £10.5 billion net and rising that we will no longer have to pay to be in this failing economic bloc.

“The passage of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill through both Houses of Parliament this week is hugely significant because it means that the European Communities Act 1972, which made the EU supreme over Westminster, will be repealed.  In other words, despite the endless anti-democratic wailing of the Remain brigade, there is no going back, we are leaving the EU and re-establishing the supremacy of our own Government and Parliament.  Not before time!”

Treat yourself to these wonderful Jacob Rees-Mogg cufflinks!

One of Westminster’s finest MPs, Freedom Association Council Member Philip Davies, has had the brainwave of producing these magnificent, British-made cufflinks, in honour of his fellow Brexiteer, The Hon. Jacob Rees-Mogg MP. One link depicts Jacob, whilst the other features Jacob’s brilliant line, “I’m all in favour of nannies, but not the nanny state” (Conservative Blue text on a white background).

The Freedom Association responds to Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner

On 27 November we wrote to Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, asking her to order an investigation into the policing methods used outside All Saints Centre in Lewes on Saturday 25 November 2017 which resulted in the cancellation of a talk by Katie Hopkins. (Click here to read that letter

Ms. Bourne replied to us with a factually inaccurate letter earlier this week which we have replied to today. A number of serious crimes were committed by the violent mob that assembled in the graveyard outside All Saints Centre. Those who had to run the gauntlet of this violent mob are demanding justice, and they are not going to politely go away until they get the justice that they deserve.

You have been warned. In Corbyn and his gang we are beset by the enemy within

The following is a guest post by the Rev Dr Peter Mullen, Hon. Chaplain of The Freedom Association. 

Rev-Peter-Mullen.pngIt is more than likely that Jeremy Corbyn will be our next prime minister. His political idols are Hugo Chavez and his successor Nicolas Maduro who have turned Venezuela into a hell on earth. Corbyn’s social and economic policies would quickly bring Britain to a similar catastrophe. Here are a few details…

Miguel Rodríguez Torres, a Venezuelan general who served as President Maduro’s interior minister in 2013 and 2014, recently warned that his country is on the verge of civil war. Large riots and protests have intensified in every major city, including the working class neighbourhoods which once firmly supported Maduro’s government.
