From The Sunday Telegraph It’s official: champagne is a socialist’s drink. That’s according to a consumer study from the US that has correlated what people imbibe with their voting habits. Apparently, wine-drinkers are most likely to turn out at elections (the hangovers are lighter than for spirits) and rum is the most bipartisan tipple of [...]

I wrote an op ed piece for the Mail on Sunday yesterday setting out the case for a tactical voting alliance between Ukip and the Conservatives – something I'm calling the "Country Before Party" campaign. You can read it here. The basic argument is that unless the two parties reach some sort of accommodation, Labour [...]

I wonder if when he announced his policy of fixed-term Parliaments David Cameron had taken in to account that we would be celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta at the time of the general election next year.  Well, most of us that is. Here in Bury St, Edmunds we  will celebrate this year the 800th anniversary [...]

What did successive British governments do to end apartheid? To listen to the noises from the BBC and the Left parts of the chatterati the answer seems to be that Labour waged a decades-long heroic struggle on behalf of justice, whereas the Conservatives fought a doomed rearguard action to defend the indefensible. Here’s what actually [...]

With crucial European elections approaching, this is a good time to think about Britain’s historical ties with the people of Europe. On this day in 1066, the 6th of January, one of England’s most famous kings was crowned. Yet, within a year, the England he knew was smashed and gone for ever. King Harold II [...]

President Barack Obama has returned from his two-week Christmas vacation in Hawaii to find his controversial policy of disengagement with America's foes in tatters.

TSA agents in St. Louis, Missouri, disarmed Rooster Monkburn, a cowboy sock money, of his two-inch toy gun after a woman brought the stuffed monkey through security.
