    European Union leaders announced they will be consolidating energy and environmental goals under a new commissioner, effectively axing the intergovernmental groups’ climate arm as green policies are making it harder for citizens to pay their power bills. Former Spanish agriculture and environment minister Miguel Arias Canete was tapped by the EU Commission to take over a consolidated energy and climate office. Canete will be replacing Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard and Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger in what is seen as a huge blow to Europe’s global warming efforts.

    The only interesting things about Douglas Carswell's swtich from the Tory Party to Ukip are that it took him so long and that he has acted alone. Any thinking person has been able to see for years that the Tory Party hates conservatives. It is a roadblock, not a road, championing the elite against the people. It is kept in being only by the BBC and various dodgy billionaires, who provide it with airtime and money out of all proportion to its real support. It has no actual aims except office at all costs. It was no actual policies either,...

Farage, who was stopped and praised numerous times in the street whilst walking to the Fox News studio in Manhattan, said that prisons and schools were hotbeds of radicalisation in the UK, and reflected on how Britain has been "too weak" on Islamism in recent years.

    David Cameron faces his biggest by-election defeat yet at the hands of Ukip defector Douglas Carswell in Clacton. The first poll of the constituency, which handed ex-Tory MP Carswell 53% of the vote in 2010, predicted he would be returned as Ukip's first elected candidate in Westminster with eye-watering support of 64%. The Conservatives are trailing an enormous 44% behind on 20%, with Labour on 13%. Survation's poll for the Mail on Sunday newspaper is a disaster for the Tories, who had made clear they planned to fight the seat vigorously following Carswell's shock defection on Thursday.

The Prime Minister confirmed that the threat level to the UK has been raised from ‘substantial’ to ‘severe’. But he also said that on Monday he will be unveiling new measures to address ‘gaps’ in the UK’s ‘armoury’: [SNIP] Those gaps won’t just cover passports, though.

The figures – the first test of public opinion since the politician rocked Westminster by defecting to Nigel Farage’s party – predict a record 48 point swing towards Ukip.

    New Statesman ^ | August 15, 2014 | George Eaton
    Rather than choosing a former Ukip leader as their candidate in South Thanet, the party should have selected a liberal figure capable of winning tactical votes. With a whimper, rather than a bang, Nigel Farage has confirmed that he is standing for selection as Ukip's candidate in South Thanet. Farage finished fourth when he stood in the Tory-held seat in 2005, and only managed third place when he ran in John Bercow's Buckingham constituency in 2010, but he is right to believe he can improve on both of these performances. A recent Lord Ashcroft poll put Ukip in first place...

    Politicians are so busy squabbling over extremism that they are failing to tackle it. Shortly after midnight on Tuesday, the Home Office website published a letter from the Home Secretary, Theresa May, to the Education Secretary, Michael Gove. In it, Mrs May asked some rude questions about why his department had not acted earlier to investigate accusations of Islamist infiltration of schools in Birmingham. This was heat-of-the-night stuff. One government department is not supposed to publish its attacks on another. The error was tacitly acknowledged: on Thursday afternoon, the letter was taken down from the website.

    IN THE end, there was no big upset. Despite a surge of support for their nemesis, the UK Independence Party (UKIP), the Conservatives won the Newark by-election on June 5th with ease. This was in a sense historic—the prosperous south Nottinghamshire constituency has now given the Tories their first by-election victory while in office since 1989. But it will have done little, for all that, to quell Tory nerves set jangling by UKIP’s rise. The Tory candidate in Newark, Robert Jenrick, won with a robust majority of 7,000 votes, despite the hostile circumstances in which the election was held. It...

    The Conservatives have won the Newark by-election, retaining the seat with a majority of more than 7,000. Candidate Robert Jenrick polled 17,431 votes, beating UKIP's Roger Helmer, who finished second with 10,028 votes. Labour's Michael Payne came in third with 6,842 votes but it was a disastrous result for the Lib Dems, who were beaten into sixth place. Candidate David Watts finished sixth behind an Independent and the Green Party, losing his deposit in the process. The Lib Dems 1,004 votes represents their worst performance in a post-war English by-election. Opinion polls had suggested the Tories would hold on to...

He has assigned Conservative Party fixers to do deals with hard-right and populist parties which, until now, the Conservatives claimed were “unacceptable.” The Tories are trying to stop Nigel Farage from forming a political group in the parliament...

With UKIP swag plastered all over the Burgess Hall venue, Farage entered to rapturous applause, flanked by increased security following the assault on him earlier this week. Farage was speaking to the throngs of disaffected Brits, who have witnessed their livelihoods sacrificed for multiculturalism, big state-driven debt, and the transfer of sovereignty over their own lives from their local towns and villages to centralised governments in London and...

    UKIP leader Nigel Farage told a public meeting last night that people who describe his party as racist are "cretinous". Speaking to an audience of about 900 in Derby, he also accused the European Union of wanting to "homogenise" Europe, and hit back at critics of his party. The Derby Telegraph reports that Farage was greeted by about 50 far-left protesters outside the Riverside Centre in Derby. They chanted "Racist Nigel", but police reported no trouble as the UKIP leader entered the conference centre. Mr Farage made his visit hours after he was hit by an egg thrown by a...

    Sarah Palin’s latest contribution to global political debate, saying of Islamic prisoners: “If I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptise terrorists”, left many of her allies astonished. Even by her own standards of shooting from the hip and a willingness to offend, this was new territory. She managed at once to outrage her Christian support base, liberals who abhor the use of torture and minorities throughout the land. Nevertheless, her comments were of a piece with her own clueless approach to international relations, claiming to see Russia from her home in Alaska, being unable...

    David Cameron has promised to quit as Prime Minister if he is unable to deliver an in-out referendum on the European Union by 2017. He promised he would not “barter away” the referendum in new coalition negotiations, as an angry Conservative activist told him the public do not believe he will deliver on his promise to give the British people a say on EU membership. There are fears the pledge could be blocked by the Liberal Democrats during coalition talks if the 2015 election produces another hung parliament. Nigel Farage, the UKIP leader, claims Mr. Cameron has no intention of...

    Nigel Farage could win a seat at Westminster within weeks after a disgraced Conservative backbencher quit the Commons and forced an unexpected by-election. In a significant blow to the Tories, Patrick Mercer stepped down as MP for Newark on Tuesday night, only days before he was due to be suspended from Parliament for six months. His decision comes after a joint investigation by The Telegraph and the BBC’s Panorama programme disclosed that Mr Mercer had tabled a series of parliamentary questions and put down a motion after accepting £4,000 from undercover reporters. David Cameron now faces the prospect of Mr...

    Though there are important differences in the the flavors of UKIP and the Tea Party in the US, both groups represent a pro market, pro entrepreneur, deeply middle class, anti centralized government, and anti-establishment perspective. Both represent a reemergence of classical liberalism (with exceptions on both sides) on a large scale.
