Politicians generally get a pretty harsh press. The popular opinion is “They are the same!” and anyone who argues differently is greeted with cynical laughter. Recent events, like the EU Referendum and the Westminster terrorist attack have proved how wrong this is.
Many of the politicians who fought for Brexit took a huge risk. Boris Johnson took the biggest gamble of his life to fight for the rights of ordinary people, so much so that his father believed he had ruined his career. Continue reading

Boris supporters, after all the stress and upset he went through when he risked his entire career fighting for our rights and freedoms during Brexit, are so happy he is having a relaxing weekend at beautiful Chevening. Nobody deserves it more.
The so called spontaneous demonstrations against President Trump are not as spontaneous as they appear. It has always struck me as strange how very well organised the demonstrations are. On the day after Hillary Clinton lost the Presidency, there was civil unrest. It struck me as highly peculiar that demonstrators were brandishing exceptionally well made printed banners, with well thought out slogans. As soon as I read that Tony Blair has a £10 million war chest to undermine Brexit and populism, it was hard not to smell a rat. I then read that billionaire and arch meddler George Soros had the same aim. Continue reading
Theresa May apparently said in a private meeting last week that she is “not some crazed Brexiteer.” It was reported: “The Prime Minister made it clear at a private meeting last week that she will not risk economic suicide by ‘jumping off a cliff’ with a hard Brexit – and secretly supports some demands by Remain Tories.”She now says she: Continue reading

As the charismatic leader of Brexit, Boris Johnson became the target of some of the most vicious smear campaigns in history. Alastair Campbell announced that the strategy was to take him out, so they went for it. The best, I mean the lowest, political jackals were raked in to destroy Boris in print. After every hatchet job, he was declared to be “finished”. A leading member of Cameron’s government proudly announced to Dan Hodges, after Boris had given him the strategy to revive the UK economy, that he was going to “Knife Boris. Then he would be smashed to smithereens.” Continue reading
A Nobel prize winning economist, Joseph Stiglitz who was a former adviser to Bill Clinton, launched a cannon blast at Jean-Claude Juncker for his handling of Britain and Brexit. Juncker has sneered at Britain and accused us of blaming all our problems on the EU.Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Mr. Stiglitz said the threats of “punishment” for Britain’s leaving were sending out a terrible message. “Juncker didn’t say: “We haven’t done a good job in explaining the advantages of the EU” explained the economist. This is in line with views of Boris Johnson and his mild reproof about being like an old war movie. Continue reading
