• Owen Paterson: Leaving The EU Is A Chance To Rethink Our Disastrous Flooding Policy

    Policies created by a remote body have been inflexibly implemented on the ground – to catastrophic effect Storms Ciara and Dennis have been a sobering reminder of the awful damage which flooding can cause. For those directly affected, they have been much more than that. One of my worst memories of being DEFRA Secretary is seeing […]

  • Delingpole: Sorry, Gove, But Americans Don’t Accept Your Climate Obsession

    Unilaterally decarbonising it — as seems to be Boris Johnson’s and Michael Gove’s wizard plane — must surely count among the most suicidally pointless plan ever devised by any government in history, especially by one wearing the ‘Conservative’ tag. Michael Gove – the most powerful figure in the UK government after Boris Johnson – has […]

    People will balk at Johnson’s electric car diktat when they see the cost Bursars tend to be robust, even tactless characters. In my school and college years they were often from a military background, which augmented the no-nonsense impression. Robust certainly describes the response of that authority the other day at St John’s College, Oxford, […]

  • Boris Has Fallen Into A Trap By Sucking Up To David Attenborough

    Little good can come of the Glasgow COP, as David Cameron presumably recognises by refusing to chair the UN climate conference   Regardless of one’s views on climate change, one should welcome the fact that Boris Johnson removed Claire Perry O’Neill from her post as president of this year’s Conference of the Parties (COP 26), […]

    Last year was the year the climate issue took a sharp turn towards extremism. Let’s hope 2020 is the year sanity makes a comeback. There have long been three groups occupying the climate issue. To avoid pejoratives, I will call them A, B and C. The A group are the doubters. They don’t believe greenhouse […]

  • Even Privatisation May Come Too Late To Save An Increasingly Irrelevant BBC

    • Date: 06/02/20
    • Allister Heath, The Daily Telegraph

    The BBC is no longer a national broadcaster: it is at odds (and even at war) with a majority on social issues, is losing younger viewers to rival platforms and its grip on the commanding heights of British culture is steadily loosening. For decades, foreigners have been baffled by just how emotionally attached we are […]

  • Rod Liddle: So When Will Boris Johnson’s Government Tell Us That Hybrid Cars Are The New Diesel?

    • Date: 06/02/20
    • Ron Liddle, The Sun

    I know the Government has got a huge majority and therefore can do pretty much whatever it wants. But is it really necessary for Boris ­Johnson to p*ss off half the people in the country? The Government decided to ban petrol and diesel cars from 2040 — and has now brought the date forward to 2035. This […]

  • Fraser Nelson: The British Public Are Fighting Back Against The Digital Mob

    • Date: 02/02/20
    • Fraser Nelson, The Daily Telegraph

    There is much to learn from last month’s extraordinary general election. But one of the forces that took Johnson to No 10 is the backlash against cancel culture and those who seek to destroy others for jokes they make. At the time of his death, Sir Roger Scruton was celebrated not just as one of the […]
