Marx on Monday – We need the EU and its bent banana laws

Is there a more odious, fascist, climate change denying, dangerous and destructive monster in Britain today than the leader of UKIP Nigel Farage? His continuous assault on Britain’s membership of the European Union puts our economy, culture and legal system at risk. Most people in this country, including me, are overwhelmingly in favour of our

Delingpole on Friday: The dangerous disability rights mob

So just who are the most thoroughly unpleasant people out there on the internet? Well obviously with Piers Morgan and Sunny Hundal – and me, I suppose – the bar has been set pretty high.

One of the great things about my Bogpaper column up until now is that I haven’t broached the topic I write about pretty much every day on my Telegraph blog, every other column in the Spectator, and probably one out of every three articles I write elsewhere? Climate ****ing change. I would spell out the

Marx on Monday – Polly Toynbee, the people’s voice

In an ideal world we working class people would be able to stick up for ourselves. We would be able to write our own articles in The Guardian telling people how hard it is to live without hope and in poverty. We could set out on paper what our aspirations are. But we can’t –

Delingpole on Friday – Your soundtrack for 2013

Hello Bogpaper. Happy New Year! I did think about kicking off with my predictions for the year. But then I realised that this would only make you want to top yourselves (Basically: buy gold! Buy ammo! Stock up on baked beans and barbed wire!) so instead I’m going copy what our political class has been
