Where was the stardust, the mojo, the magic? The great entertainer who failed to entertain. Dead behind the eyes and terrified of telling the truth

  • 12 Jun 2019

I was rather looking forward to the Johnson press conference. Backbenchers are flocking to his banner because of his ability to unite, deliver Brexit by the 31October and pulverise Corbyn and Farage. I was, like everyone else, expecting razzmatazz, wit, dynamism and that star ...

The Peterborough by election showed that the Brexit party is like a bubble. They have Farage and Widdecombe with one more prick it will burst.

  • 7 Jun 2019

There are three things of significance about Labour’s victory in the Peterborough by election. Firstly, that if the Brexit Party can’t win a seat where  61% voted leave, despite their polling, they are nothing more than a bubble party that will eventually burst. Secondly, the ...

Boris has a totally contempt for the truth and anything honourable and decent. But should he be prosecuted?

  • 30 May 2019

It really is time to uncork the Gauke. He should act swiftly and decisively to carry out his statutory duty to protect the judiciary unlike his ghastly, weak  and venal predecessor, Liz Truss, who did for the Ministry of Justice what King Herod did for baby sitting.   Of...

This could be May’s legacy a one clause un-amendable bill to scupper a No Deal. She has the numbers. Does she have the courage?

  • 28 May 2019

Well, as dear old Emily Thornberry has sung for her supper on BBC election night I suppose it must be all over. Poor woman. Shadow Foreign Secretary and pitted against political Titans such as Suzanne Evans and some girl who is apparently  deputy Chairman of the Conservative p...

No front runner for the Tory leadership has EVER won.

  • 25 May 2019

There will be much razzmatazz tomorrow when the Tories will be temporarily airbrushed out of politics. They will be lucky to have kept a single European seat. Farage will strut the stage behaving more and more like a pound shop Mussolini demanding that he has a seat at the neg...

The Farage attack on Marr and the BBC was a dog whistle stunt to close down awkward questions. We have spawned a demagogue

  • 13 May 2019

Andrew Marr is one of the most decent and intelligent people in broadcasting. He doesn’t indulge in point scoring, hectoring nor making a cheap headline. If you are interviewed by him expect fair play. But beware. He is not a soft touch. He will gently prize out of his subject...

The Tory party will split. How many will jump on the Farage chicken run and join the Betrayal Party?

  • 8 May 2019

I can finally see where this whole Brexit fiasco is going to end. It is not a pretty sight. The Conservative party will split. The government will fall. And there will be a minority Corbyn government propped up by the SNP with the Danegeld of another referendum on Independence...

The message bayoneted to Tory and Labour councillors is clear. The electorate won’t vote for extremes

  • 6 May 2019

I can see any hope for the survival of the Conservative party fading fast. If loyal  supporters didn’t get the stark message bayoneted to over a thousand hard working councillors who lost their seats, how can there be? Winston Churchill once described a fanatic as, ‘someone wh...

Poor Widders has made a terrible error of judgement. If Conservative Home doesn’t remind readers that it it is a kick outable offence to support another party they might as well call themselves Farage Home

  • 28 Apr 2019

I have been watching political events from the rain kissed beaches of Malaga for the last few days with increasing bewilderment. For reasons beyond my comprehension, a child has been feted by world leaders for her savant like gift of warning us of the bloody obvious; the catas...

The Gormenghastlyness of politics has reached new depths of despair. It’s time for sentient Tories to stop their descent into Bochian hell

  • 20 Apr 2019

The Gormenghastlyness of British politics has reached new depths of despair. I am not going to try and argue that the terrible reenactment of Ulster’s bloody past in Derry is a direct result of a Brexit border crisis, but there are connections. The peace process has always bee...
