Labour is Being Poisoned by the Far Left’s Arrogance

It has ceased to be amusing. In the seemingly endless joke, for which the Labour Party performs the roles of both protagonist and antagonist, the humour has dissipated and the desire to ‘see the funny side’ grown stale.

Labour’s shame

The UK parliament will, at some point in the near future, vote on the UK military taking part in a coalition of countries fighting against Daesh in Syria.

Working Tax Credits – Resolve is needed

What a state we have come to.  The government, in furtherance of a manifesto promise is seeking to reduce, with the long term aim of eliminating, Working Tax Credits.

The new Old Labour leadership contest

Today I listened to about an hour of the LBC Labour leaders debate hosted by Iain Dale. As a Conservative supporter, watching the state of disarray in Labour- whether it is with their shambolic response to welfare cuts or their grass-roots’ embrace of a dinosaur reincarnation of Michael Foot- is …

The Classless Labour Party

Labour has long been associated with the working class of the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, that association has been bad for the working class and hard working people in general. In reality, the Labour party is the party of entitlement, and as Cameron has described them many times, they are the …

Our Politicians in Gatsby’s World

The other night, while concluding watching the latest cinema version of The Great Gatsby (which by the way is slightly, but not overwhelmingly, above average) with my fiance, I remembered why my favourite fiction novel was The Great Gatsby.

He makes a good & strong case & I believe he is spot on. Here are the excerpts I shared on my facebook page, my American audience …
