Tory Chairman Brandon Lewis has reported that Tory membership is rising by the day. Tory support has swelled to 500,000 including activists. The bottom line is voters simply don’t know what Labour stands for anymore, and the way Corbyn stuck up for the Russians has probably sounded the death knell on his career.
Six thousand Tory supporters have signed up since January alone. Continue reading
Boris Johnson appeared on BBC Radio 4 yesterday, and gave one of his best interviews. Incisive, forceful and hilarious, Boris firmly laid down the red lines regarding the customs union (We can’t suck and blow at the same time said Boris) and on the European Court of Justice. (We will get rid of all ECJ control).
But a confidential letter leaked to the press has handed Labour a red herring to wave in the faces of the Tories, and distracted attention from the vital issue of sorting out the Irish question.

Boris Johnson launches a swingeing defence of the much maligned US Prez in today’s Sunday Telegraph, he is President of a country that happens to be “our closest ally” says the Foreign Secretary.
Boris begins: The Labour party is of course entitled to espouse all manner of puerile and backward-looking ideas. That is their privilege as a kind of glorified Momentum-based protest group. Continue reading
Boris is exonerated over the ad. on the battle bus. About ruddy time!
The Bruges group goes even further . They say quite rightly, when calculating the amount of money we give the EU, it is only right to include what we have paid in bailouts, So that works out at £660M a week.

Dominic Lawson wrote a significant article yesterday in which he said twitter is turning people into attention seeking children. He also criticised the lies and abuse on twitter, that are “dumbing the whole world down.”
It seems that the Labour strategy of endless abuse, lies and non stop smear campaigns aimed at leading Tory figures is not working. Alastair Campbell should know. His name and notoriety are based on his success in inventing smear campaigns and spin. Continue reading

Nausea overwhelmed twitter at the news that Nick Clegg – yes, Nick Clegg, is to be knighted in the New Years Honours list. Lord Fibbington Muchley, the poster boy for perfidy.
Nick is to be knighted for his services to the Coalition, ie. consistently using his veto to block every single decent idea the Tories had. His most damaging intervention was to block all terror measures and plans to fight radicalisation on the grounds of human rights in spite of valiant efforts by David Cameron over an entire weekend to change his mind. This is how one of Nick Clegg’s Coalition partners described him, in May 2014. Continue reading
