David Cameron’s Legacy

Yesterday, I read an article by Louise Mensch calling David Cameron one of Britain’s greatest Prime Ministers. To say he was “one of the greatest” is, to put it mildly, over-egging it a bit. But it is worth reflecting on David Cameron’s significant accomplishments while in office, which I think are …

The Daily Globe #Brexit Manifesto

Winning the referendum was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I’ve been fighting for Brexit for a long time and winning was one the grandest of satisfactions. I see fantastic opportunities for the post-Brexit United Kingdom. However, before those Brexit opportunities are realised we need to address the …

British Democracy or European Oligarchy: You Decide.

This week is it. Your decision time has arrived Britannia. Leave or Stay: what’ll it be? Most Britons have made up their mind by now which way they are going to vote. The polls (if they are to be believed following their poor performance ahead of the 2015 General Election) …

The Next Lion: Boris Johnson

“For several decades now it has been fashionable to say that those so-called great men and women are just ephiphenomena, meretricious bubbles on the vast tides of social history. Well, I think the story of Winston Churchill is a pretty withering retort to all that malarkey. He and he alone …

Overcoming the #IDS of March

Beware the Ides of March! So said the soothsayer to Julius Caesar in Shakespeare’s version of the Roman dictator’s March 15th assassination. George Osborne, who loves reading about historical political figures and who is, almost indisputably the current ruler of Westminster, would have been wise to ask his political rival …

America’s AU Referendum- America in Britain’s situation

To have a proper debate on anything requires the most global of perspectives. Unfortunately, most of the EU referendum debate so far has been either “euro-centric” or “Britain of 2015-centric” and often fails to take into account how Brexit affects the rest of the world or how it would be …

UK Politics- 2015 in Review

2015 was a great and monumental year for British politics. My top ten biggest stories for the year are as follows: The Conservatives winning a majority at the general election. Lynton Crosby did a fantastic job at properly framing the stakes for the British people- that Ed Miliband-led Labour was weak …

Thoughts on ISIS, Islamic Culture and liberalism.

With the recent evil ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris, Lebanon, Kenya, Egypt and other places, people are often asking “why would anyone do such a thing?” It’s a fair question but I think the gap between one who is driven to a death cult like ISIS and moderate Muslims and …

Fun Euroscepticism

Well, Cameron’s EU renegotiation “demands” have been revealed and they are as pathetic and limp-wristed as we expected them to be. It will come as no surprise to any Daily Globe readers that the Daily Globe is now officially behind the “Leave” campaign and if one is looking for great …

In Rememberance

This is a brief article I wrote on my personal blog back in 2013 about Remembrance Day. I stand by this position today- The Great War/World War I, though it was necessary Britain and her allies fight, had possibly the worst affect on humanity of any war in history.  On …

British Values – Global Perspective

Often, I am asked by friends “what is the mission of the Daily Globe?” Usually, they want me to pigeon-hole the site. They want to know if the Daily Globe is a political website, a social website, a rant website- they want to know what exactly is the Daily Globe? …
