Out of the EU, the UK will go from strength to strength as we again determine our own destiny

Here in the United Kingdom we are lucky enough to have inherited a system of governance based on constitutional monarchy, parliamentary sovereignty and Common Law which have long been tested and tried in our history. On the whole they have percolated from the bottom up, brewed through time and experience –  as opposed to being intellectual ideas imposed from above as Roman law and Napoleonic codes are in Europe.

These attributes are the envy of the world, as is testified to by the fact that they have been so widely exported to other countries and other regimes. Added to these carefully evolved successes has been our ability to conduct an astute and independent foreign policy, to make fruitful alliances and to maintain world-class military forces famous for their resilience, their traditions and the fact that they draw on men and women from all corners of the kingdom.

These resounding successes derived largely from our being an island nation. This meant that we could experiment with and develop our own institutions with a large degree of independence. At many points we capitalised on and made a virtue of that independence and the flexibility it gave us.

The essence of conservatism is the ability to recognise, to winnow out and conserve these things that work well. Unfortunately, the original European trading union – the Common Market which we joined in the 1970s – has stealthily evolved into a grand federalist project: a United States of Europe with ever greater union proposed, that threatens to subsume our distinctive identity and achievements in a kind of homogenised continent.

It is a semi-utopian project backed up by a technocratic globalist vision which expects to end war forever and to dissolve borders in a dream that John Lennon might have penned. It might speak of respect for national characteristics but de facto routinely supersedes them. For example, it has emerged that, if we stayed on in the European Union we would lose the ability to fashion our own foreign policy, while our military independence as free members of NATO would be abandoned as we became part of an incipient European army.

Most people in the UK voted to Leave the EU but it has become apparent, because of the bad faith and obstructing tactics of the last Parliament, that this will only happen if Boris Johnson achieves a real working majority and is able to ratify his hard-won deal. And he will only be able to do this by winning close-run seats like Portsmouth South, where I am standing as the Conservative candidate.

When we leave in this way we will be able to reclaim our identity and allow our excellent institutions such as our legislature and our judiciary to function independently again. We will determine our destiny in foreign policy and use our military as we see fit. Another long-developed and carefully nurtured tradition has been our ability to make the most of free trade. Outside the EU’s Customs Union we will be able to make the most of the network the Commonwealth represents, of our special relationship with the US and of the high reputation in which we stand worldwide.

Although in a different relationship with the EU, we have well-established relationships with European countries, as is evident in the Entente Cordiale with France, which we will continue to be able to exploit and contribute to.

With our technology industries, our world-renowned financial services and the trust-based environment which our legal regimes provide for inward investors, there is no reason why we cannot prosper and go from from strength to strength outside of the European Union.

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
