In the Lowy Lecture in Sydney last week, Boris explained the series of ideas that have made Britain great. These are the ideas the EU is trying to destroy. The picture below is Cleisthenes, called the father of democracy.
- Rule of Law
- Habeas Corpus
- An independent judiciary
- Freedom to make fun of politicians in whatever way we like, ie free speech.
Boris said: “…… we are committed not only to spending 2% of our GDP on defence, but to a further 0.5% increment every year until 2020. As my right hon. Friend the Defence Secretary has pointed out, we will maintain the size of our armed forces, which are superb and the best in the world.” Continue reading
The situation in Somalia has reached crisis point, so Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has paid a surprise visit. He arrived in the Somali capital Mogadishu today. His visit to the East African Nation was an unannounced trip and it is the first time a higher profile UK minister has visited Somalia since the Somali Parliament elected Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo as president last month. Britain is appealing for aid for Somalia’s drought, which has been declared a national disaster amid warnings of a full-blown famine. Continue reading
An Italian eurocrat ordered Boris Johnson that under no circumstances must we negotiate with the US regarding a deal until we have left. Still trying to rule the roost! Who, in their right mind, ever made the absolutely terrible decision that we get involved with these bullying shysters in the first place?

The balance of power has shifted with a vengeance. The new Prez has cancelled TTIP. He has also put tariffs on Volkwagens and says if the EU form an EU army, he will pull out of NATO.

Watch Boris address the FAC in Brussels today. The President Elect, Donald Trump has made some pretty frank comments about Britain and Brexit. He describes our move as “really really smart!”. He has also excoriated Merkel’s immigration policy as the disaster it is!
Madam Merkel is not used to being countermanded. So the EU are the ones on the back foot right now.

For the first time in more than a decade, Greek and Turkish Cypriots plan to submit maps to the United Nations detailing their proposals on territorial boundaries between constituent states in a two-zone federation.

Brits are over the moon and touched to tears by the stalwart demonstration of loyalty from America. Paul Ryan, and the Prez. Elect, want to show support for Britain, and are getting cracking on a trade deal. How sweet is that?To be honest, the treatment from Europe, has cut like a knife. Throughout history, Britain has always been there for them. When Napoleon threatened the continent, Wellington saved Europe. Continue reading
