September 15, 2016 // 0 Comments

It is interesting to observe the outrage of Gloucestershire MPs — no doubt with a keen eye on their future election prospects —  at the Boundary Commission proposals for the county.  As far as Gloucester is concerned it seems that the solution for the farce that Longlevens is [...]

September 14, 2016 // 0 Comments

It has been an interesting few days. We discovered that key investors had pulled out of the King’s Walk redevelopment citing uncertainty caused by Brexit as their reason, yet  we also found out that plans have been approved for a new 4,000 seater stadium which is to be built for Gloucester [...]

Amazing!! – UK doing well after Brexit

July 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

In a recent newspaper article, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron spent an entire article telling us all what a disaster we face after the vote to leave the EU a month ago.

Project Fear from the Little Europeans

March 8, 2016 // 0 Comments

“Brexit means uncertainty” reads the Remain scare tactic handbook. Isn’t that an odd argument? The only way we can have any certainty about our future is to be in control of our own destiny. The real uncertainty comes from entrusting our future to EU elites. Remainers like to [...]

Not many people who were six years of age would have memories of the fateful day in 1973 when Britain became a member of the European Community, or Common Market as it was known then.  Those six year olds would not have listened to the arguments for and against joining or the implications of the [...]

In years past a leading toothpaste manufacturer used to advertise its product with the slogan: ‘A ring of confidence’.  Although the EU has its ring of gold stars on a blue background, it has undermined the confidence of the UK to govern itself, which is the message put out by Lord Lawson when [...]

May 7, 2014 // 0 Comments

The costs of EU membership are of two types, the ‘direct cost’ (i.e., what our country, nearly entirely our government, pays directly to the EU institutions to comply with the treaties) and the ‘indirect costs’ (i.e., the costs of lost output because of the burden of [...]
