PRESS RELEASE Oldham shows UKIP have ‘shot their bolt’!

PRESS RELEASE  Oldham shows UKIP have ‘shot their bolt’!

Despite having a clear run left for them by the English Democrats, UKIP have failed (again) to beat Corbyn’s Labour in Oldham. UKIP have ‘shot their bolt’! The English Democrats left the field clear for UKIP insurgents to do as well as possible in Oldham.  Despite Labour’s new Leader making it clear that he was very much of the unpatriotic Far Left, nevertheless UKIP was unable to make the breakthrough. This was even with all UKIP’s tremendous campaigning…

It Will Take Trillions of Euros to Save the European Union

It Will Take Trillions of Euros to Save the European Union

The EU’s political leaders and other elites are committed to holding the European Union together. To them, united Europe is an article of faith. They hold the idea with as much ferocity and fervor as any religious belief. But while the European Union is a wonderful political idea, it’s economically terrible. And the EU nations will have to face up to bearing enormous costs to save the Europe we wished for. Why the Euro Doesn’t…

After the SNP’s historic victory in the 2015 General Election in Scotland, nationalist politicians can reasonably ask – What is the next step in the battle to break-up the UK?

English Votes for English Laws (“EVEL”) is a Westminster focussed political gimmic

English Votes for English Laws (“EVEL”) is a Westminster focussed political gimmick not a constitutionally valid solution to the “English Question” and cannot work for the following reasons:- If EVEL is introduced without legislation it would be merely a procedural Convention, without the force of law.  It is much easier to change Conventions than to repeal Acts of Parliament. EVEL does not address who governs England (The English Question) and would lead to a situation…
