Delingpole on Friday: Matthew Parris’s Spectator column on UKIP is really shite

    Because I recently had to take the quite stringent test you have to do to be considered as a UKIP parliamentary candidate, I’m reasonably familiar with the party’s manifesto. It’s not perfect: definitely a work in progress, I’d say, rather than the finished product, as you can see from its mild confusion or

Thatcher on Thursday: Real Help For The Heroes.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere sympathy to the family, friends and Brothers of Drummer Lee Rigby. There has been a lot of fuss and bother this week surrounding the proposed donation from the English Defence League that was declined by the forces charity, Help For Heroes. People have been

Russell Taylor – In praise of a country worth fighting for

In the immediate aftermath of Drummer Lee Rigby’s brutal murder, one of his killers, Michael Adebolajo, gave a bizarre apology for having forced women to witness his barbarity, offering the qualification that women in his land were exposed to such things. Given that he spoke with a London accent, I wondered what land he had

Marx on Monday – gay marriage

Listening to the debate in the commons last week about same sex marriage one fact has become crystal clear to me – if you oppose gay marriage you are a fascist! Thank goodness then, that there are still those with the courage and principles to stand up to homophobia and attempt to remove this plague

Delingpole on Friday: Woolwich – it was all Nick Robinson’s fault…

OK so which would you say is the worse crime? a) killing an unarmed man with meat cleavers in a London street and then trying to slice his head off? b) describing the alleged killers as “of Muslim appearance” on BBC news? Call me old-fashioned but I would have gone for a). Which just goes

Thatcher on Thursday : As a Christian, I struggle with the idea of homosexuality – but I oppose homophobia.

Welcome to Great Britain.  Like it or not, Great Britain is a Christian Country.  Our Head of State is also the Head of the Church.  (I abhor the thought that Prince Charles wants to become Defender of Faiths.  Other faiths have enough defenders.  They do not need another one.  But that is another post for

Russell Tayler – In praise of the dream that was Rome

Two big issues have resurfaced recently: gay marriage and the EU. There’s no obvious connection between the two, but given the similar levels of attention afforded them by MPs and the media, you’d think they were of equal significance. They’re not. I’m not sure where I stand on gay marriage, or if I care about

Marx on Monday – the rise of UKIP

I don’t know about you but I for one am not impressed by the so-called unstoppable rise of UKIP. When all is said and done British Politics is determined by one thing and one thing only – social class. If you are upper-class and, like Michael Gove, you were born with a silver spoon in

Delingpole on Friday: Obama, the IRS and the Führerprinzip

Kill and eat a baby manatee live on television? Urinate on the Lincoln memorial? Torch the US flag? Fly Air Force One into the Empire State Building with a final cry of Allahu Akhbar? Maybe you can help me. I’m trying to think of the things President Obama would have to do in order for

Thatcher on Thursday : Mali. Global Wealth Redistribution isn’t Complex, is it?

Dwight  Eisenhower was a five-star general in the US Army during World War II. He became the first supreme commander of NATO.  In 1953 he successfully campaigned to become the 34th President of the United States. This Republican was a Military President. His speech on leaving office in 1961 should not be overlooked for its
