Returning Jihadis – 27/11/17

I recently learned about the Government’s ‘Operation Constrain’. It offers housing and jobs support to returning Jihadis and watch-list suspects, to bribe them into re-integrating. They couldn’t integrate to start with (despite being raised and educated here), so what hope is there after a couple of years in groups like IS? The UK has only turned back […]

General Election Reflection

You’re surprised the way this country voted? Me too. I thought the public would give the Tories a mandate for getting on with a clean Brexit and return them with a comfy majority. Totally wrong. And I was shocked by the way that UKIP were annihilated. I was prepared for a big drop in support, […]

Manchester

In the wake of the Islamist bombing in Manchester, our 2017 Parliamentary candidate Paul Hickling offers his personal perspective on the attack. ‘To those who say we should carry on as normal; you are wrong and ignorant.

Leaving aside the reasons for the strike – the use of […]

Douglas Carswell

I’m writing this in the immediate wake of Douglas Carswell MP’s resignation from UKIP. My immediate feelings – mild relief for one. A little sadness on the other hand. It can be argued that the public car-crash that the party has become since Farage’s resignation last year is partly attributable to him. He undermined Farage […]

Stoke 2017

I spent three weekends up in Stoke canvassing on the doorstep in both Labour and Conservative areas and found the people of the city to be very friendly, open-minded and approachable, regardless of their politics. The operation and co-ordination on the ground was immense. It was well-run by Lisa Duffy and her team. The call […]
