We need a more democratic Conservative Party to support Boris Johnson in delivering Brexit

The next three months are the most critical our country has faced for many decades. Since we voted to leave the EU on 23rd June 2016 with a clear mandate from the British people, we have made little progress towards the exit, other than triggering Article 50, which set us on a two-year negotiating deadline. We have now missed two deadlines and we cannot afford as a country to miss a third – and neither can the Conservative Party.Let us be in no doubt: the two finalists in the Conservative leadership election achieved their places by promising to leave the EU with or without a deal. Boris Johnson won with an overwhelming 66% of the vote because he, over and above Jeremy Hunt, gave the certainty that we would leave on Hallowe’en. This is what Conservative Party members voted for, as did Conservative MPs – with over half of them backing Boris in the final round.Add to this the fact that the House of Commons voted to trigger Article 50 to leave the EU with a massive majority of 384. Boris…

Labour’s Ali Milani Condoned Armed Struggle Against Israel on Press TV

The dubious history of Labour’s candidate to take on Boris in Uxbridge has been further exposed, with new footage uncovered showing Ali Milani refusing to rule out “armed struggle” against Israel while also pushing the classic trope of a well-funded Israel lobby. No wonder he fits right in with Corbyn’s Labour… When asked on Corbyn’s favourite Iranian state propaganda outlet, Press TV – natch – whether the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israel) is “an alternative to armed struggle or something alongside it?” Milani responded with an answer condoning both:“There is no reason why we need to frame the argument as binary, it doesn’t have to be either a non-violent economic resistance or an armed resistance…”In the same interview, alongside another notorious spreader of 9/11 and other conspiracy theories, he claimed that his distasteful views were not easy to argue against “the lobbyists [who] come out very quickly; the other side is much better funded than we are”. Un…

UK Set for Record August Flight Departures Despite Brexit

Despite the incessant doom and gloom from Remainers about Boris and the low pound – now it suits their agenda, at least – the UK’s aviation market is still set to soar to new heights this August. Departing seats from UK airports are set to rise to their highest level of 17.3 million in August this year, up from 17 million last year. The low pound is flustering commentators, not deterring holidaymakers…Capacity is taking off at airports across the UK, with all but three airports soaring. The only airports to see a fall were Stansted, Glasgow, and Belfast due to their heavy reliance on Remainiac-owned Ryanair. If only Michael O’Leary spent less time moaning about Brexit and more time sorting out his business…The post UK Set for Record August Flight Departures Despite Brexit appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

Irish Central Bank Warns of 100,000 Jobs Lost if No Deal

The Central Bank of Ireland has sounded off about potential ‘cliff-edge’ risks in the event of a no-deal, no-transition Brexit:“The main outstanding source of risk to financial stability in Ireland stems from a worse-than-expected macroeconomic shock. This could arise if the expected negative impact through trade channels is compounded by a sharp increase in uncertainty and a fall in confidence, with knock-on effects to Irish employment, incomes and investment. Ireland’s relatively acute exposure to Brexit may also negatively alter investor sentiment towards Irish assets, with adverse implications for financing conditions of an already relatively indebted private sector. Given the extent of direct and indirect exposures, this would result in unanticipated losses for the domestic financial system.”The Central Bank forecasts that in a No Deal scenario Irish economic output could be approximately 6% lower in 2020. In the understated language of central bankers they warn of “… severe fina…

Remainers Blame Brexit for Not Making Profit for Seven Years

Gay Star News has shut its doors, making twenty people redundant and not paying them for a whole month of work. Aside from journalism, the company had also been running the official not-so-successfulLGBT+ for a People’s Vote campaign. What are they blaming for their demise? “The uncertainty over Brexit” of course!“The biggest change was the level of confidence brands and businesses in the UK have, due to the uncertainty over Brexit. It won’t surprise anyone to hear that many media organisations are struggling with the same problem.”But this claim doesn’t quite ring true when their rival PinkNews has tripled its revenue over the last twelve months. Perhaps Gay Star News’ investors were some of the few people who actually believed their Second Referendum campaign’s scare stories talking down the UK post-Brexit. Or more likely, it was just shoddy business practice…A source familiar with the company told Guido that “they over hired constantly and didn’t know what they were doing… how can …
