Arron Banks has put Paul Nuttall in an impossible position!

There is no doubting the success that Arron Banks has had with his Leave.EU organisation. It very nearly secured the official leave campaign designation against an establishment machine with a number of big guns behind it, including Ukip's only MP Douglas Carswell. The past year has seen his name rise to prominence and his group is now poised, with its massive online presence and following, to become a serious political player. Unfortunately his decision to 'offer' himself forward as the Ukip chairman, with the constant…

Welsh media is misleading the public over Muslim schoolteacher refused U.S entry!

This is yet another issue which I didn't want to write about, but now feel compelled. The Welsh media is currently pulling its hair out over the news that a Muslim schoolteacher was denied entry to the U.S while on a school trip with students from my own former Comprehensive school. The story has been covered by WalesOnline and the South Wales Evening Post but in a very peculiar way. Before I get on to criticisms of the two pieces linked above and the general response from the Welsh public, or at least those I have seen,…

Have Plaid Cymru Lost The Plot?

Plaid Cymru appear to have descended into complete madness, over and above the bizarre pitch to Wales which they offered in the wake of the referendum result. Plaid Cymru decided to introduce a vote into the Senedd to oppose the triggering of the Article 50 process unless a few empty and meaningless 'assurances' were offered on 'participation' in the single market which the Assembly couldn't possibly expect to enforce. The idea behind this move is similar to the joint paper produced by Labour and Plaid Cymru, effectively…

The Violent Thugs At U.C Berkeley Have Progressive Written All Over Them!

I don't often delve into the U.S political scene, a scene I see as increasingly nasty, vindictive and worryingly polarised. I've noticed similar trends in Britain, so forgive me for wanting to enjoy the British political scene to the maximum, before it descends into this unworkable shit-show, largely created by the left. I write this not as an address to our American cousins, who need not my lectures on the ills of leftist identity politics, but to those at home in my country, Britain, where the same divisive, nasty and…

It’s Cymdeithas, not the Welsh Culture Commitee that’s a disgrace to democracy!

It would appear that despite Ukip having 6 democratically elected representatives in the Welsh Assembly, not everyone is prepared to accept their right to sit on committees and ask questions. The Welsh language society Cymdeithas Yr Iaith was invited to provide evidence to the Welsh Assembly's Culture, Welsh Language and Communications committee. Shortly before the meeting however, Cymdeithas issued an email to the chair of the committee, Plaid Cymru AM Bethan Jenkins, stating their opposition to Ukip and their refusal to…

Ukip Must Mobilise: Stoke-on-Trent is a MUST WIN by-election!

The first major test of Paul Nuttall's leadership has come: The Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election. If we take it, Ukip's future over the next few years is secured, if we don't, what prospects do the party have of winning seats in 2020?  This is a call to arms for the people's army of Ukip. The time has come to bury the hatchet, pull together and mobilise like never before. Tristram Hunt's resignation as an MP has given Ukip a perfect opportunity to stem the tide of the Illiberal Undemocrats and their polluting efforts to…

Why Ukip Isn’t Going Anywhere!

Many questions have been asked of the UK Independence Party following the result of the 23rd of June and the decision by the British people to withdraw from the European Union. The most important question that has been asked and that I believe deserves an answer is: What is the purpose of Ukip? While it is no doubt true that membership of the European Union put the 'I' in Ukip, it would be naive to think that the result signals an end for this radical and influential political party. On the contrary, leaving the European…

Time For House of Lords Reform?

One of the main issues in the 2016 EU referendum was democracy – with critics citing the democratic deficit of having powerful, unelected European Commissioners presiding over Brussels (and by extension, UK) law-making. A common response to this complaint was to highlight the fact that Westminster’s second chamber (the House of Lords) is also unelected, with some peers sitting there by virtue of their heritage. Lords reform is one of those great issues in politics that never seems to get resolved. Governments of every…

The UKIP Leadership Shambles!

What a sad few weeks it has been if you're a supporter of UKIP. The party that has played the largest role in the re-shaping of British politics this century, winning almost 4 million votes and winning the referendum which brexiteers have been fighting for since 1992 has descended into pantomime; The UKIP leadership shambles. For me, the beginning of this whole debacle occurred with the suspension of Suzanne Evans. After an interview given on the Daily Politics where she referred to Nigel Farage as being 'perceived as…
