  • Six ways conservatives on both sides of the pond can learn from each other (Barf, guv'ner!)

    America and Great Britain share a special relationship. We speak the same language, have a similar system of laws, have similar (quasi-)capitalist economic system and even often share a system of weights and measurements. As America is a former colony of the United Kingdom, we owe much to Great Britain. Nevertheless, some things we don’t get about each other. Generally, Americans don’t understand Britons’ reverence for monarchy, and Britons don’t understand Americans’ fascination with guns. Politically, our countries do some things right, and some wrong. I follow both countries’ politics closely and I thought I would offer some constructive criticism...

    The Conservatives could be pushed into third place at the European elections after the party’s poll ratings plunged in the wake of the Maria Miller expenses scandal. A poll has put the Tories on 23 percent, behind Labour (31 percent) and UKIP (28 percent) just days after the Culture Secretary was forced to resign in an expenses row. The Liberal Democrats were on a dismal 9 percent, according to analysis of recent polling by Professor Curtice of Strathclyde University. Levels of support for UKIP are now at a record high as they were the only party to gain popularity in...

    (Reuters) - Britain's economy could grow by 1.3 billion pounds if it left the European Union due to less regulation and more trade with emerging economies, a British diplomat who dreamt up a prize-winning blueprint for the country's EU exit said on Tuesday. Britain's free market Institute of Economic Affairs on Tuesday awarded a 100,000-euro prize to Iain Mansfield, a British diplomat based in the Philippines, who it decided had come up with the best blueprint for a 'Brexit,' a British departure from the EU. Amid widespread public disenchantment in Britain about the EU's perceived over-bearing role in everyday life...

    (Reuters) - Prime Minister David Cameron's handling of an expenses scandal engulfing one of his ministers has put him under pressure before European elections, threatening his Conservative party's already clouded electoral outlook. Cameron, whose party risks being beaten into third place in next month's European Parliament elections behind the anti-EU UK Independence party (UKIP), has stood by Maria Miller, Britain's minister for culture, since a parliamentary report ordered her to pay back wrongly claimed expenses last week. But the media and public backlash against Miller shows no sign of abating despite Cameron's efforts to end it. Many of his own...

    The Tory revolt over Europe took a dramatic turn last night after senior Conservative David Davis called on the Government to open talks with Brussels on quitting the EU. Former Tory chairman Mr. Davis tore into David Cameron, accusing him of making a mess of his pledge to win back powers from the EU. “Scaremongers” who said Britain would collapse if it decided to go it alone were talking nonsense, said Mr Davis. Quitting the EU would be like a “revolution” and would boost UK jobs, wages, world power, arts and prestige, he added. Significantly, his intervention comes days after...

    In British law, race and religion are increasingly becoming deliberately confused for the purpose of accusing critics of Islam of racism. A soccer fan was recently arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after allegedly ripping up pages of the Qur’an and throwing them at a match. While on bail, he was also banned from attending any football games, visiting St Andrew’s – the stadium of the incident -, and going to any city where his team Middlesbrough was playing.Insults against Islam are taken very seriously in Britain, and the world of soccer is particularly sensitive to them.

    Ukip is to drop its opposition to gay marriage, party leader Nigel Farage revealed today. The move risks angering disaffected Tories who switched to Ukip after same sex weddings were legalised by the coalition, but Mr Farage insisted: ‘We have absolutely no problem with anybody.’ He said that as part of a review of Ukip’s manifesto, which he has dismissed as ‘drivel’, he would not campaign for gay weddings to be banned. Ukip previously said civil partnerships were a ‘common sense’ way for gay and lesbian couples to register their commitment ‘in a formal way’. But it warned: Gay marriage...

What remains of its traditional support base, including some MPs, often seems opposed to the modernizing, socially-liberal direction of its leadership.

    The debate surrounding our membership of the EU is framed in abstract terms. Phrases such as “comitology”, “modality”, “subsidiarity”, “externalization“, “planification” and “modality” bamboozle and confuse. They mean little to anyone who lives in the real world. But, as a series of revelations during the past week have proven… there’s a reason for that. Firstly we had the EU’s Habitat Directive rear its head. A railway line in England collapsed into the sea as a result of poor weather. However, it couldn't be repaired until an ‘environmental impact assessment’ upon the local bird population was first completed.Next, it was the...

Farage admitted that his party is experiencing something of a "lull" but insisted that it was on course to win next year's European parliamentary...

    Writing for MSN, Ukip leader Nigel Farage welcomes David Cameron's decision to scrap alcohol minimum pricing and plain-pack cigarettes - but says the government must do more to stop thinking it always knows best It’s been a pretty good week for those of us who believe in personal liberty. The government has dropped the legislation that promised that booze would be sold with a minimum price and that cigarette packets should be plain. But these are two small victories in an ongoing war with a political class that really does think it knows how best we should live our lives....

    One in five Conservative Party members are on the verge of switching to the UK Independence Party, a new poll suggests. In a further sign of the schism between the party leadership and the grassroots, more than half do not believe they are respected by David Cameron and his top team. There is also deep-rooted opposition to flagship coalition policies including legalizing gay marriage and protecting the foreign aid budget from cuts. …

  • EXCLUSIVE: Green 'industry' bullying weak minded politicians says UKIP's Nigel Farage

    The environmental movement has become politicised, urbanised and is 'full of profound deep ignorance' says UKIP leader Nigel Farage. In an exclusive interview with edie, Farage says he has been a keen supporter of environmental issues since the late 1980's but attacked those driving the movement today, claiming that it has turned into an 'industry'. "This industry has managed to bully weak minded politicians into making a series of decisions that actually aren't good for biodiversity, sustainability or the environment," says Farage. Claiming to be an environmentalist, Farage slammed European leaders for lacking the necessary understanding to put effective environmental...

    Going to the pub with Nigel Farage is very therapeutic. Within seconds of our drinks arriving, I realise I am telling him my troubles as we sit beneath an umbrella at a table in the street. He is nodding sympathetically, sipping from a pint of beer and puffing on his trademark cigarette. As I offload my frustrations, he says all the right things. Before long, we are setting the world to rights and I catch myself thinking that I must tell Nigel about that problem I had with my local police because… Because what, exactly? Farage has that indefinable quality...

    Tory donors have threatened to switch their allegiance to UKIP unless David Cameron adopts a tougher stance on Europe. In yet another blow to his leadership, former Tory treasurer Lord Kalms said he was “willing to pack (his) bags” and sign up with UKIP unless the Prime Minister adopted more traditional Tory policies. UKIP leader Nigel Farage is set to seize on discontent among Tory MPs and UKIP’s recent success in the polls with a fund-raising appeal. … Three of the most generous donors to the Conservatives have reportedly complained about the PM’s emphasis on gay marriage. Separately, one former...

    UKIP founder Nigel Farage is courting powerful City donors amid increasing anti-Europe sentiment among the UK’s business elite. City firms – most notably the hedge fund, insurance and commodities sectors – are sick of the “unending blizzard” of regulation coming out of Brussels, says Mr Farage, who claims traditional City Conservative supporters are switching allegiance to UKIP. “Slowly but surely, donors who would have traditionally supported the Tories are now holding talks with us,” Mr Farage told The Daily Telegraph. “We are asking [City leaders] to help in any way we can.” The most recent business convert to UKIP is...

    People who call gay sex ‘disgusting’ will be allowed to stay in the UK Independence Party. Nigel Farage defended party members with ‘old-fashioned’ views about homosexuality, as he warned that with the government passing same-sex weddings ‘nobody knows where it will end up’. MPs last night backed the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, but Mr. Farage said ministers were ‘picking a war with middle England’. …
