Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deserve this sickening Nazi smear

By Steven George-Hilley The Sun’s footage of a 7 year old Princess Elizabeth, apparently being taught the ‘Nazi Salute’ by her uncle, was filmed at an age when she could have no knowledge of the meaning of her actions.

If I were a Labour voter….I’d be wondering where it all went SO wrong

If I were a Labour voter….I’d be wondering where it all went SO wrong

If I were a Labour voter, I would be worried. Worried that it is unclear what we even stand for anymore. Worried that we no longer have a safety blanket of fifty Scottish MPs, worried that our once safe seats in the North are becoming Ukip hotspots. Worried that maybe we’re not tough enuss. But more than anything else, worried […]

Up north the party is very much a religion; it is respected, celebrated and adored… but never questioned. Due to this of this it has become apparent over the years that the North East electorate […]

During a diatribe about out-of-touch elites, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star practically boasted: “I am personally a product of the welfare state, not least because I signed on for eight years while I learned to be a comedian, so […]

Israel deserves Britain’s support

Israel deserves Britain’s support

Today’s Israel is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and forward-thinking democracy. As the forces of Islamic extremism wreak havoc on its neighbours, Israel deserves, and needs, our support. Two weeks ago, dozens of rainbow flags fluttered along Tel Aviv’s spectacular sea front. On 12 June, over 100,000 people gathered in the city to celebrate Asia’s largest gay pride event.

Why #ToriesForCorbyn isn’t very funny.

Why #ToriesForCorbyn isn’t very funny.

In 2004 the Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah declared “If Jews all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” Gaza based Hamas soon went on to suggest homosexuality should be punishable by death. Not a particularly nice bunch, eh? You’d think that. Unless of course you were the veteran Labour MP for Islington […]

Hunting Act repeal debate sparks vicious online abuse from anti-Tory extremists

As the debate over the Hunting Ban resurfaces following David Cameron’s pledge to offer a free vote on the issue , anti- Tory agitators have been quick to hijack the mood.

Why it’s now time to protect the free market for tickets

While we’re busy enjoying the first majority Conservative government for nearly two decades it can be easy to forget the previous five years of being beholden to the Lib Dems. There are always small reminders, however, of the unwelcome legacy that they left behind. One of the most egregious of these saw the party shoehorn an amendment into the Consumer […]
