In praise of Jackie Doyle Price for giving the Kippers the swivel finger in a seat that would think Ghengis Khan was a dangerous lefty

  • 5 May 2013

The electorate have spoken. Or rather the thirty percent who bothered to get off their backsides and vote have. But what were they saying? Was it that nice Mr. Farage has got some very sensible well thought out and costed proposals which will get this economy moving? Sadly, no...

UKIP's gains will be illusory and short lived. Remember what happened to the SDP

  • 2 May 2013

It would be very helpful if some of our more excitable backbenchers before they do a very passable corporal Jones of not panicking took a deep breath, poured themselves a large scotch and read a little history. In 1981 the SDP was born. They broke the mould of British politics...

Grayling's proposals for the criminal law are anti choice anti small business and will lead to the destruction of a world class justice system.

  • 28 Apr 2013

I wrote a few weeks ago about how the imbecilic Chris Grayling is hell bent on destroying the independent criminal bar and ethnically cleansing family solicitors from the high street. I warned that consultation would be a farce and that legal sweat shops who won’t give a damn ...

Bojo or Jojo who has the biggest mojo?

  • 26 Apr 2013

One of David Cameron’s greatest assets is luck. At a time when it looked as if his party would tear itself apart because of selfish tantrums of the right paralysed with fear over UKIP and trainspottingly obsessed with all things Brussels, nobody seemed to notice Labour’s st...

Thatcher must be relishing that fact that her death has lifted the lid off of Real Labour. Even from the grave she can strike a fatal blow.

  • 13 Apr 2013

I wonder when it will dawn on Ed Milliband that until the Labour Party appreciates how great a leader Tony Blair was they can never be elected. Sadly it won’t enter his head as he is precisely the wrong person to make such a judgement as during the Blair years he was plotting ...

Today we witnessed the passing of a phenomenon within a whirlwind: thoughts on Margaret Thatcher.

  • 8 Apr 2013

The reaction to the death of Margaret Thatcher will be a game of two halves. The unedifying, intolerant and thoroughly nasty whoops of joy from the left and rather alarming prostrations of grief from her worshippers. The truth of the matter is that Thatcher was not the ogre w...

I feel sorry for the Youth Czar but not for wingeing Tory backbenchers accusing George young of blackmail

  • 7 Apr 2013

There are two instructive and fascinating stories that grace the Sunday newspapers this morning. The hilarious tale of Paris Brown the seventeen year old £15,000 Kent Youth Czar who has entertained the twitter sphere with her rants about drugs, gays and booze. And the allegati...

That MPs should receive a £15 handout for dinner is bonkers. That they should moan about it is insane.

  • 4 Apr 2013

What a bizarre topsy turvey world we live in. At a time when it has just dawned on a complacent nation that the juggernaut of the dependency culture has to be seriously slowed if not stopped our esteemed tribunes of the people have got their finger on the pulse of the mood of...

George Carey and Justin Bieber's pet monkey vie for the front pages for who is the most out of control primate

  • 30 Mar 2013

I suppose there is a delightful irony that a former Archbishop of Canterbury and Justin Bieber’s pet monkey vie for the front pages this morning as to which is the most out of control primate. I think George Carey wins by more than a whisker. And he is far more of a menace tha...

The departure of David Miliband is a hammer blow for Labour's chances of re election and marks a distinctive lurch to the left

  • 27 Mar 2013

The resignation of David Miliband is a hammer blow to Labour’s chances of re election. There will be whoops of joy from the left, champagne flowing in the trade union bunkers and horror and despair amongst the Blairites. If anyone is deluded enough to be believe that this will...
