      Go Farage, Go!

      by Jon Gaunt

      Nigel Farage is back and I for one am pretty pleased that he is returning to front line politics with a new political party, The Brexit Party. This will be our Brexit bonus.

      by Janice Atkinson

      Ex-Chancellor George Osborne, turned editor of a newspaper in charge of Project Fear, plies his trade in Davos, along with Remain funder multi-millionaire Roland Rudd (brother of Secretary of State and arch Remainer, Amber Rudd) and Tony Blair.

      MP's Are Real Vandals!

      by Jon Gaunt

      My first reaction on hearing of the vandalism of the Bomber Command memorial was to demand the bringing back of the birch for the animals who have carried out the attacks. However, no amount of public flogging would sort out this attitude to our heroes. The problem is much, much deeper.

      System Failure, Davos Dithers

      by Finian Cunningham

      I Admire Diane Abbott's Achievements But Manufactured BBC Row of Race and Sexual Politics Just Masks Her Incompetency

      by Janice Atkinson

      I admire shadow home secretary Diane Abbott for her achievements, a girl from a grammar school who gained entry to Cambridge to read history and for becoming an MP.

      The Time for IndyRef2 is Now – Use the Mandate, Name the Date

      by Tommy Sheridan

      I was never a big fan of the comedian Bob Monkhouse. He was a Tory and supported Thatcher so that was enough to put me off him. However, he did crack a particularly memorable joke that I was compelled to think about after watching the turgid BBC Politics Scotland show yesterday.

      Dig in for EU Victory!

      by Jon Gaunt

      It is apt that Boris Johnson is making a key note speech or leadership bid at a JCB digger factory today because this country is in a hole and we need to stop our useless politicians digging.

      EU's Fear of a No-Deal Brexit Stench Is In The Air, but May Won't Seize Upon It

      by Janice Atkinson

      I’ve been in Strasbourg this week and the good news for Brexiteers and Mrs May is that the atmosphere was redolent with fear. Fear of a no deal.

      No Confidence? Turkeys (Whether They're Tory Ones or Not) Don't Vote for Christmas

      by Neil Clark

      Wednesday's Vote of No Confidence in the UK government is likely to fail because Tory MPs - and many Labour ones too fear a left-wing, transformative Corbyn government (which raises the prospect of a change in UK foreign policy) more than anything.

      by Tommy Sheridan

      Exactly two years ago today, January 11th 2016, my wee world was turned upside down. It was a pretty unspectacular Wednesday. The night before was wild with strong winds and rain. We have a glass globe light fixed to the outside side wall of our house. It had been there since we moved into the house in 2016.

      by Finian Cunningham

      China has not just made an historic landing on the moon. It has also given notice that the country is set to become a global leader in technology and science. And it is proving American trade disputes for the envious vandalism that they really are.
