The DUP – are caves really so bad?

So the Tories and the DUP have just signed the long-awaited confidence and supply deal. For those out of the loop, I’ve put a link here. There’s been a lot of anxiety surrounding the potential Conservative deal with the Democratic Unionists, and to be quite honest, I’ve had no sympathy …

Labour Centrists Bend The Knee To Jeremy Corbyn, Once Again

No courage, no backbone, no vision of their own Telegraph sketchwriter Michael Deacon reports on the rapturous reception given to Jeremy Corbyn by the Parliamentary Labour Party when he entered the Commons yesterday: Labour MPs cheered Jeremy Corbyn.

Social Conservatism – Flogging a Dead Horse

What has the world come to? Before the General Election, I incorrectly predicted that the Conservative Party would win hands-down, and to my own credit, so did many other commentators. Then democracy happened, and the great hand of uncertainty threw all my assumptions to the wind. Looking back at the …

The NHS is not free and reform is needed

The NHS in Britain was formed in 1948 by a Labour Government with Clement Attlee as Prime Minister but the driver of this great institution as it was to become was the Welsh MP, Aneurin Bevan. Prior to 1948 Britons had to pay for health services. So, if you could …

Reflecting on Owen Smith’s ISIS comments

Owen Smith is quickly proving only one thing: he is not up to the top job in Britain. Nor is he making a particularly persuasive case for why he should be the man to lead Labour into the 2020 General Election. I have decided not to write in any great …

Europhile Myths Debunked

There are a number of central claims to the Remain campaign. They are easily dismantled with the right analysis and the proper arguments. “3.5 million British jobs are directly linked to British membership of the European Union– 1 in 10 British jobs.” It is dishonest to say jobs depend on …

Letters to ISIS from a confused UK Socialist

Having taken on board the pacifistic attitude displayed and advice given by Jeremy Corbyn, current leader of the Trotsky Labour Party, I’ve been embarking on a peaceful route towards improving Western relations with ISIS. I may not agree with Jeremy regarding current UK Foreign Policy with regards to Syria and …

The Left has Lost their Usefulness

Good article recently by John Harris in the left’s favourite newspaper, The Guardian. The article, from a leftist, does a good job of showing that the old leftist paradigm of a powerful caretaker state is not suited to the reality of 21st century economy. (Not to say socialism was a good …

Socialism is Fundamentally Immoral.

The situation in Venezuela is very tragic and another sad example of the inherit flaw in socialism. It’s interesting to me that a couple years ago my History of Economic Thought professor, Dr. Sam Bostaph (an advocate of the Austrian School of Economic Thought) predicted that the Chavista regime would …

Give me that Old Time Modern Religion: The prevalence of the 20th Century Church of Socialism and its Faithful and Zealous Congregation.
