Starmer is outflanking Boris on the right

Sir Keir Starmer was billed by his detractors as the MP for the liberal elite, the Baronet to the ‘People’s Vote’, a Knight in an ivory tower who had neither the acumen nor the character to take back the Red Wall. As soon as Starmer won the Labour leadership contest, …

Conservative moderation defeats the extremists

Conservatism above all else is about moderation. It is about conserving rather than overthrowing.  It is for this reason that Conservatives reject both the extremes of Left and Right and the extremism of nationalist and secession movements. The extremes of Left and Right are treated very differently in the media. There …

Soled out or turbot charged?

Brexit has finally come to an apparent conclusion. The deal was struck on Christmas Eve between negotiating parties, if not by those who will need to ratify. The debate has already begun on whether the UK’s fleet has been soled out or if, to corrupt a promise from Boris, the …

The road away from conservatism

The following is a joint piece from Jake Scott and Angus Gillan Intro  The greatest obstacle facing Boris Johnson is the clear lack of a philosophy at present. As the oldest political party, still active, in history, with a record of continued and effectual governing, one would be quite right …

Conservatives must cease being declinist

The problem with Scottish Conservatism is structural rather than personal. Ruth Davidson is better suited to leadership than either Douglas Ross or Jackson Carlaw. But this is because she is first rate politician. It is not because her ideas are any different from theirs. They all more or less agree …

Build Back Worse: the Madness of In Crowds

Back in 2016, prior to the EU Referendum, I wrote of my admiration for Boris Johnson for being, like Churchill, willing to stand up to the group think views of his own class and back Brexit. He stood up against a ruling class that I described as: “People who went …

To Conserve Nothing

In logic, there is a form of fallacy called the “slippery slope argument”, the belief (as defined here) that “a course of action ought to be rejected because, with little or no evidence, one insists that it will lead to a chain reaction resulting in an undesirable end or ends”. …

The British People must stand up for liberty once again

What could have been. Originally, Britain, led by a Prime Minister that called the mayor of Jaws his hero, intended to follow the “Swedish” strategy of trusting people’s common sense to tackle the coronavirus. However, the British government famously u-turned and decided instead to follow the extreme strategy of lockdown …

Indyref2 has already been decided. Someone, please tell Nicola.

The Scottish Government has announced that there is to be a draft bill for a second referendum on Scottish independence – indyref2. There is already much comment about what the question will be (perhaps a variant of Leave/Remain to comply with Electoral Commission guidance post 2014), whether independence will win …

Brexit – the True Story

The campaign to create a European Union began after WWI. After the war the Germans were weakened and facing a growing threat from the USSR (The Communist Russian Empire).  Count Coudenhove-Kalergi founded “Paneuropa” to lobby for a European Union to counter this Russian threat.  Paneuropa is still alive and well …

Why CANZUK Now?

Hopefully, soon, Brexit will be achieved in its full, glorious, finality. Boris Johnson has led the nation towards a successful Brexit as he had promised all those years and battles ago, in the days when “unprecedented” was not in every newspaper article and headline. He took over from Theresa May, …

Clap for Nicola

Since March I have not clapped for anyone. I have not gone into the street. I have not banged on pots and pans. I have not yelled, and I have not sung. I do not do such things. I have a different viewpoint on ethics and follow this teaching: When …

Choosing books

We are living in strange times.  Times where history, or rather British and English history, is being erased. Statues are being pulled down and or defaced.  MPs, local Councils and Common Purpose police are in thrall to extreme Leftist agitators.  They are literally, on their knees in a symbol of …

Don’t lose faith in the Conservative Party or Boris

Many lefties and Labour supporters, even those within the Conservative Party who were angry at the Cummings situation, waited for the release of the YouGov polls, hoping to see a major change in the fortunes of the Tory Party as well as Prime Minister Boris Johnson. However not only were …

If you want to oppose separatism, don’t be separate

I am a Conservative voter. I support Boris Johnson completely and think he is the best thing that has happened to our party for decades. I believe in free markets, gradually lowering taxes where possible and leaving the EU. I am represented by no one in the Scottish Parliament. There …

Boris made the right judgment call

The phrase of trial by media is pertinent from the last couple of days. I may only be in the adolescence phase of reading law, but I am sure in the fact that convictions come from trial by judge and jury and not by Owen Jones. I will be clear. …
