    Europe is still living with the consequences of the Lisbon Treaty

    The EU doesn’t usually shy away from landmark celebrations. But one notable date passed almost unnoticed in Brussels this week as the ten-year anniversary of the signing of the Lisbon Treaty came and went. No official ceremony was held. No pro-EU gushing from the most reliable of EU federalists. Not even any faint murmurs of nostalgia for...

    Britain needs to wake up to the Russian threat

    It’s hard to avoid mention of Donald Trump and Russia in British political circles these days. And the combined threat they pose. Liberal democracies have come late to an understanding of the threat Russia’s hybrid warfare pose. The threat has been super-charged by an investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia, which could...

    There’s nothing green about socialism

    Earlier this month, I wrote about the determined efforts of socialists on both sides of the Atlantic to conflate capitalism with racism. No doubt, some promoters of capitalism were racists. But that is hardly surprising, since racism, along with slavery and wanton cruelty, were universal and, until recently, eternal phenomena. The truth is, no...

    Socialism’s obsession with race

    Speaking to the Los Angeles Times last August, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors, stated that BLM would not sit at the table with President Trump, because he “is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country – be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia”. Trump’s views and actions aside, calling...

    What do General Michael Flynn, President Donald J Trump’s first National Security Advisor, Paul Manafort, Trump’s erstwhile campaign chief, and Tony Podesta, the lobbyist and brother of Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chief, John Podesta, have in common?

    The outlines of a new Russia policy have taken shape in the UK over recent years. The aim is to protect ourselves and our allies. The days when we thought we could influence developments inside Russia are long gone. The policy, to use the language of the Cold War, is one of containment rather than rollback. Contrary to what the Kremlin or its...

    Time to crack down on Russia Today and its destabilising propaganda

    Vladimir Putin’s regime murders critics, harasses opposition parties, poisons dissidents, locks up protesters, assassinates journalists, represses gays, invades neighbouring states and annexes their territory, shoots civilian airplanes out of the sky, interferes in the electoral processes of democratic states, and aids the unspeakable...
