How to produce a mental case…

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

Rev-Peter-Mullen.pngEvery week, it seems, there is another TV documentary or a special supplement in a national newspaper to tell us the shocking news of the “epidemic of mental illness among young people.” Even Prince Harry and Prince William wax all teary eyeball and harp on the same theme. The sages in the mass media express puzzlement about the causes of this epidemic.

Hands All Round

The following is a guest post Dr. Timothy Tomkinson. 

The other day I stumbled across this poem by Tennyson. Written a hundred and thirty two years ago and although a little garish, it is remarkably relevant to the present day. Of course there can be many interpretations but beyond the slightly grating overtones it is high-minded and enduring. At its core it calls for individual freedom, and discerns where balances of power lie.

It is a splendid tribute to an enduring outlook, as he correctly states the priority that the UK and Anglosphere have traditionally put on freedom. To paraphrase Disraeli, I prefer the liberties we now enjoy to the liberalism they profess, and find something better than the Rights of Man in the Rights of Englishmen”. That is the sentiment echoed in the poem and borne out today. The fact that in the UK one may prefer the freedoms and liberties that we have been gifted, more than the illusory rights professed by more authoritarian regimes (although the times are changing).

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.
