Mr Cameron, Forget the Fudge, Forget the Farce, and Just for Once… Deliver!

For far too long this country has suffered from a democratic, and an honesty deficit perpetuated by both European Union (EU) and British politicians.

Launch of the #SayNoToTheEU Tour with Nigel Farage

European Arrest Warrant: A Blunt and Sinister Instrument that Hurts Us All

Prosecutors have gone to the High Court to withdraw the arrest warrant that enabled Spanish police to hold Brett and Naghemeh King in custody. I am very pleased that this family, at a time of great distress has been reunited. It was disgraceful that the parents of this poor child were dragged into police custody while he was suffering. The deployment of a European Arrest Warrant involving Ashya King is a clear cut case of…
